"And another one of my one of my favorite bumps that nick took was not an actual match. If you go back to the larry submits go. Turn in new jersey. When larry hit nick. What the nunchucks. Nicholson an announcer. Came into the ring. And this was nick's actual baby-faced turn in the awa. And larry hit him over the head with nunchucks and nick did that. Flashback bump it is it is a thing of beauty and he would do it for the billy robinson forearms he would do it from the top of the cage against the crusher and you know who knows maybe. They took their toll on him. I don't know but but certainly It was a thing of beauty absolute beauty and the one thing i gotta say as far as that is concerned way too and this is to me. One of the greatest attributes was that he would sell his ass off for everybody and to me. That was the difference between nick and rick. Flair flares matches book the same. All the time knicks matches again depending on the opponent was would be different and it was a far lesser opponent. He would make them look great. I remember he had a match with rufus jones the late rufus jones who was not the greatest technical wrestler in the world. But you know nick. Wrestle in a main event here eddie made rufus jones look like a million dollars and to me that was that's one of nick's true legacy as far as i'm concerned he was that he was selfless in the ring. He would bump for everybody. He knew what it took. He knew what his role was wanted to give people that illusion that he could be beat on any given night by anybody and That's a lost art. As far as i'm concerned. I two more quickies before i wrap up unless you've got to go right now. No go ahead okay. Oh there's another email question. In the bruce mitchell audio show is mentioned that bobby heenan did not know that was dropping the title the autobahns and it led to a change in their relationship. What was their relationship like after he left for wwf. I did hear nick. Talk about bobby. Leaving and he said. He gave bobby and endorsement. Because nick was fifty and his better days behind him and bobby had a chance to make a lot of money. So it doesn't sound like there was resentment over bobby leaving but did you ever hear that story about about bobby. Feeling a little left out of the loop. As far as i title change went. I had never heard that story before. And you know as we all know. It's it was a business arrangement at the time I would be. I would be kinda surprised if bobby didn't know that it was coming. Or if he was left out of negotiation process in the end it didn't. It did really matter because bobby was here for another two years anyway but i have not heard that story now.

"And i think that selling a ticket in saint paul. Minnesota doesn't count less than selling a ticket in new york city or at in los angeles. I mean i. I don't believe in that. I know people on the coasts and vast majority of the population is on the west coast and the east coast in this country but the chicago. Minneapolis saint paul in the surrounding region. And of course later denver and san francisco awa geographically was the biggest tori and so the nwa was lots of territories but no single nwa territory was bigger than awa. In fact awa was bigger than the wwf. It's just seen as number three because it wasn't on the coast other than san francisco later on and so to me where nick is in that conversation. Despite not being the pop culture icon Or the community you know. Brett farve aaron rodgers. Green bay for ganja was to minneapolis. Saint paul I mean he was before major league. Sports were as big as they are today. As big as i live through it as big as fran torkington as big as any minnesota twin in this is certainly bigger than any hockey player in this was pre and be in this town. Verne was at the very top of celebrity. Athletes only certainly was no had. We've talked about this. Before you know went vern passed away that his celebrity transcended you know just the wrestling business. You literally hobnobbed with everybody. You know governors and presidents and vice-presidents them. You know and Book at one point that i was going to make way it it. It's just a little bit of an aside as to what we were talking about. What the awa First of all your point about the the promotion not existing on the coast making a big difference as far a big difference as far as the coverage that they got on a national scale when the magazines are published in new york. And i've talked to bill after about this. It was just a natural deal. You know they were gonna cover a hulk hogan out there right It was that kind of thing. But i gotta tell you if you were an awa fan. In terms of the sheer impact on the awa at sales. I would go spend a weekend and go to milwaukee chicago green bay back to back to back and watch the sell out crowds when nick was on top. And i'm telling you. There was nick and ray stevens there were riots in every building that we went to i mean literally and the the impact on vast scale is just bar not do have the lived through that in the old school era where people weren't behind the guard rail and they were going right up to the ring and It was just beyond words. I guess the only thing. I can compare it to wrestling in the south with fans would absolutely go crazy. And just batch it crazy and so again the impactfully here in the awa. Nick was Nichols beyond here. And i think it's the duration of time on top not just as world champion but a significant figure with race teams. Take champion in the early seventies that that puts them in the conversation with roddy who's a household name. Nationally influenced the biggest brand name in the industry today. The wrestlemainia roddy was you could argue number two behind hogan and i would say perhaps ahead andrei in terms of establishing the wrestlemainia name and then dusty was. I mean we do all. We have done hold shows on multiple hours on him. I i have. I've dusty ahead ahead of nick. But but i think you can like i said there top top one or two percent and it's there's no shame in being number four two on our list to dusty roddy and vernon it's a good conversation. I'm making. I know you've got an appointment to get. Can we squeeze in one more call before we wrap up okay good. Let's let's do that. I let's go to seven one eight thanks for holding. Please state your name and the city. You're calling from mike in brooklyn. I don't i don't make it. Well listen to the. You know the conversation about mr boc wink. I think he saw a sign of class and one of my memory. This is just to dispel a little bit on the east coast northeast. Not i'm thirty six years old now. i a wrestling. And the and the eighty three eighty four and one of my earliest memories is my father. Taking me to barnes jerry and the meadowlands arena nick bach versus rick martel for the awa title with the world warriors underneath and a young scot whole like pretty much viewing like i mean people. Go ahead tom worker. Yep right i was a big fan. I had the little wimp. Coal action figures with rain. And all that nick boxing. I was a fan of his to me. i think i'm kind of dolph. Ziggler mirrors him as far as you know like his in ring. Privacy for i would say palma why to be. Make bachman mike. I'm brett lady. Brought that up Short on time here. But but i think. Nick bach winkle in the ring. You know we think of him. As the determined of that era was scientific you know he was a scientific wrestlers holds encounter holds and those kinds of maneuvers and. He wasn't a big high flyer. Obviously but i think he gets tremendous credit for both the and ray. Stevens are bumps watching nick. Boxing put overhaul hulk for instance with his flat back. Bumps the i mean it and bobby. Heenan was was desserts in the same sentence sentences. Those three they were the best of their generation. At big flashback bombs. I think that curt hennig That nick beget kurt. Heading who begat shawn. Michaels inspired dolph ziggler. And i think maybe. That's where the connection that mike talking about comes from Does that stand out to you. Also as something that that should be in the top five list of things you talk about with. Nick is the absolute Sacrificing he did of his body with those amazing fightback bumps to put his opponent over while he did. And i'm thinking of where he would take a hogan clothesline. Yep yeah. They looked awfully stiff to.

"Lost four grades this year Vern ganja w rhodes you just mentioned him. Roddy piper and nick bog winkle. I'm not seeing you the most objective source for this question. But i'm going to ask it anyway and give me your best answer because i know you're a student of the industry as much as you are a fan and admire of nick winkle among rank those four. Todd martin nasty this yesterday on the vip audio show. We did together. Ranked does for on impact to the business with the understanding. That number four is in the top one percent of people we would talk about But could you rank those four. In order of the lasting impact that they had on the industry man That is really a tough question. And i think if. I'm going to be if i'm going to be objective about that. And go against my my conscience of candy my personal preferences i. I think that well are. Are you talking. The real history of the business in terms of their impact or you're talking about the the the impact recognition among wrestling fans. I mean like a popular recognition among wrestling fans. I impact on the direction. Th the success that they had drawing money in the impact and influence. They had in their era. While i mean i think verne has to be number one for running the awa. Concurrently being the awa champion In in the largest of the territories. I mean i think verne is easily number one. That's my opinion and then it's a matter of the next three but you don't have to agree with that. But that's i think you can go from there and think who are the next three. Yeah i would agree with vern. I mean in terms of not only is in ring. You know you've been around forever. But the impact of the direction. I mean the fact that he built the empire. No question about that. You know i might be inclined to go with dusty rhodes number two and the reason i say that is because it would be close really reason i say that weight is if you go back to the national expansion. When cable was was blowing up and you you had hogan in one place and you have rick flair dusty rhodes or in another place. I think dusty had real mainstream appeal back then so in terms of overall popularity. Maybe dusty rhodes Piper certainly again at this is from a popularity snap way. This is why. I'm kind of getting caught up in the question because nick to me i mean. Nick was very influential in terms of what he did in the business going into opposing territories Being the to me of a champion what. What have you get nick affect the direction of the business. I don't think so bad. I would say yeah. That was burn. A dusty rhodes roddy piper. They were more of the the entertainer they were more of the over the top personalities both in nwa and wwe. So i suppose when you talk about the direction of the business going from old school to the entertainment era then you gotta go with roads and roddy piper Nick was there nicholas. Solid nick was as great as he was. I don't know that i could say nick. Had an effect on the direction of the business. I think he was kinda following burns. Lead if that makes sense and picking up the The the legacy in that direction or whatever. It is that the awa hat. I don't think nick changed the direction of the business. Yeah i'm with you. I first ranked. I still do i. I went vern and then a pretty decent sized gap to roddy Dusty very close and then a a a smaller drop off After that to nick balk winkle for really the reasons you said. I think it's you can absolutely make a case for dusty. And i think anybody probably from the south would would make the case for dusty. Because i think it's so close kind of your perspective experiencing them would probably tip you over the tip one over the other. I went with roddy number two. Because i think there was no better opponent in the wwf. Hulk hogan roddy piper. I think roddy as much as nick. And bobby were vital to hulkamania taking hold in the awa and were great opponents in perfect. Foils for him there. I think what. Vince mcmahon had in mind for expanding nationally in becoming a pop culture phenomenon and building the wrestlemainia brand linking with m. t. v. being on nbc. After sadder on on Instead of reruns. Saturday night live. During the saturday. Night's main event era. I think that puts roddy over dusty but i i mean you can really make a case for dusty to be i mean when dusty died. He got as much media attention nationally. As roddy in that surprised me considering how much I won't call brainwashing but selective hype of legends Dust that wwe gave dusty compared to roddy. I'm certainly over. The years roddie gets gets. I think better treatment in that regard because of the tape library that wwe references than dusty did. So i think it's really close. But i still edge roddy because i think. Wwe was standing in the end and roddy was so vital for a relatively small amount of time in those mid eighties till launching the wrestlemainia era as the number one. He'll opposite hogan you know and it's kind of interesting and i. I know we're getting off. Nick a little bit. But but i have a question for you wait given what you said about dusty rhodes and roddy piper and changing the direction of the business in compact. Why you personally wouldn't have put ric flair inequities. Oh talking about wrestlers. Who died this year. Okay gotcha yeah it was it was. It's wake. I framed it in that way. I think the question tom brought up because we have spent so much time. This you're talking about these four and when somebody dies you examine their life their career especially in the chair that i sit in and and so we had spent so much time talking about him. It was sort of just a curiosity from todd. Having seen nick and verna close but still seen a lot of dusty and roddy up. Close to how where i stood and he kinda threw that question me flare. Yeah that's a whole other conversation for another day if we started including You know a few others who would be in that top ten list and flair would would be top five. You know what's interesting in as you talk about this more and you mentioned those four the best way i can describe it is. Nick was so good and he was so solid. And i mean he was absolutely a champion power. Excellence he was kind of just there If you knew the awa if you follow wrestling you knew how great the guy was. If you were a huge awa loyalist. You knew how great he was the masses. I guess across the country because again of the the cable expansion would probably say dusty rhodes and roddy piper had more of an impact remember. Vern didn't actually get into that national expansion where he had his talent roster out there until after the nwa and wwf did so by that time it was already firmly established in everybody's mind what wrestling was now supposed to be either. The wwf for the nwa saw again impact on the business. You're in the awa. Nick had tremendous impact. He had as much impact will not quite as much but certainly continued on the begun. Ganja legacy but overall national impact on the business probably not. I'm rich band host of the deep dive with richmond. A weekly part of the torch valey cast lineup of shirts.

"It kind of became a no brainer to him. I don't think the nick ever seriously considered jumping to the to the wwf. At the time and the reason. I say that is because y- vince is starting his national expansion in the early to mid eighties at that point again. You're looking at nick about fifty years old so from a wrestling standpoint. Outside of you know just a talk about doing the million dollar man idea which of course again they. They flipped over to drc. I don't think as an entering competitor and and this goes to your point earlier on with nick have made it today. I mean wouldn't have made it as an in ring competitor in wwf going back to nineteen eighty five. Considering that's when they were really cartoonish and over the top he worked for them. An agent for awhile very briefly. He did some color commentary for them. But i don't really think that there was ever any real inclination knicks per to jump ship and leave for i. I don't think so if you'd like to hear this show without ads and plugs interrupting. There's one thing you can do right now to make that happen. And that has become a pow torch member.

"To be remembering be creates nick bach lincoln a longtime awa champion Almost uninterrupted from the mid seventies through through the early eighties held at one other time ended up. Kind of passing the torch to kurt heading in the latter days of the awa. But nick was as i put it on tuesdays. Live cast which eysenck powell my world champion growing up. I learned that that nick was the best at what he did that verne ganja used to be but was unable to get the belt from and my first pro wrestling event was vern. Gonyea chance his retirement match the legendary gandhi. The of awa the promoter in owner behind the scenes was going to give it one last shot in may of nineteen eighty-one and wanted to see her beatnik buckling goal. And the first ticket i ever bought for professional wrestling was to save ganja defeat nick bach winkle to win the awa title. Vern would immediately. Retire and nick would be awarded the championship by default since verne had retired But it was for several years before that as a kid that i watch nick. Lincoln cut absolutely awesome. He'll promos as the intellectual snob looking down his nose at the humanoids as they called him as he called us. And the dynamic with him bobby heenan was unmatched. I talked about that with todd. Martin on the the fixed with todd martin. Vpo show last night. When we were reminiscing about nick mcmichael and putting putting him in in historical context or trying to and he absolutely had a dynamic with. Bobby i think was better than any other wrestler. Bobby heenan managed. And i think they're pairing was incredible so on today's program. I'm pleased to announce that mccarthy will be my guest. He's been in the last before multiple times. We had him on earlier this year. Talk about the death of foreign ghana. Who i spoke up. It's been a quite a year for big names in professional wrestling history dying this year. Nick balk winkle roddy piper dusty rhodes and burn ganja the four biggest names. We lost this year. And we've done special shows on all of them. And i'm very pleased that mccarter joining me on today's program to talk about nick. The reason mixon is. He ran nick. Fan club throughout the nineteen seventies and eighties. He was a an ultra for the awa. Did ring announcing at the showboat pavilion in las vegas when the awa was on. Espn don a lot of other announcing still does play by play for local indy promotions in minnesota and he was a former towards columnist and also hosted a wrestling block saturday night at ringside for a long stretch time during the late eighties and early nineties. And he's just he's been a great friend of mine for years. We used to travel to rochester minnesota in the dying days of the agency. The last tv tapings at awa did and i got to learn a lot about his theories on the k. assassination and so many other topics back in those days too. So it's just great to be able to bring mic on the program. God is this. You actually make welcome to the program. Thank you wait. I wish it was under different circumstances. But it's always a pleasure to be with you. It is always great to have you on the program. I i knew. When i heard the news over the weekend i knew who i wanted to have on the show today and i mean there's there's nobody better think george shire fellow historian and book author and minnesota wrestling history. Said that on your facebook page that you are the go to person when it comes to nick's career mick. How how did you learn about nick's death maybe tell tell. Tell us that. And and talk about how you react to it. And then we'll kind of work backwards from there and talk about how you first got to know him what it was about bach winkle that led to you starting a fan club based on based on his him as a on air television wrestler. How found out weighed. You know you talk about a rude awakening. i literally. that's what it was Funny thing. I was I was having computer issues last week. you know and and i was running a computer scan before i went to bed and woke up in the middle of the night. Kinda restless and i thought i'm gonna go check and see how the scan is going and while i did that i went to facebook. And this is about four thirty five o'clock in the morning and lo and behold. I saw post from morgan dollar. Who is a One of the executives collie flower ellie club. A good friend of mine and morgan. Basically there it was. He said i got a phone call from carl lower who is Kind of the head of operations there at cac. And carl had notified him. That nick had passed away during the evening and again. I'm like half awake. And i read this and the bottom literally fell out. There was I can't describe it to you. I just absolutely cannot. I mean i knew that that nick had been in ill health. You know for the last several years but never ever did. I anticipate that he was going to be gone as quickly as he went. So it was a total shock to me. It's there a cause of death mic. That's known well you know. I kinda getting conflicting reports You know nick had had some serious memory issues for the past several years and he really was kind of going downhill wade. The last couple of times that. I saw my colleague flower alley. I noticed a real market difference from the year. Before and last time i was out there in april it was it was really evident Not only that his his memory was going because he would he would recognize. You know a lot of the people that came up talk to. But there was those that he didn't and he should have And so that was kinda glaring and then he also really looked more frail than he had in the past. So i think you know i. I don't know if there was an official cause of other than the fact that you know. I think he just shut down and Again really really surprising. I don't think there's been a definitive word from the family. They're very private group knicks failing nick's wife and and his his relatives. So a not a lot has been actually released regarding the cause. But you know it's it's i guess it's kind of moot and just tragic wanted to get that out of the way because i'm not i don't wanna spend a lotta time mic and i don't think you do either talking about You know nick at a stage in lift a great life and high quality life. I don't think we spend a of time talking about the last few years with the time that we have with you in this hour. I wanna talk about what made nick. Perhaps my favorite wrestler of all time. And i hesitate to say that because your vancouver president unequivocably. He is your favorite But as i said at the intro he was my world champion. Grow up and the thing that i've been saying all week about him is that he was the the contain it. When you do scientific experiments there's a control group. There's these people were not gonna do weird things too. But then we're going to do things to all these other people and we want to make sure that those changes are not showing up on the control group so that we know it really is. These things were doing to that. Nick was like the control group. He was the guy who stood there on this show to this wide eyed eight nine ten year old watching w for me in the late seventies. He was this normal articulate guy who could have been an insurance salesman which he would go on to do so everybody else stood out mad dog for schon the crusher baron vaughn jesse the body on the other end of the spectrum in terms of you know Weirdness he was the guy who kind of made everybody else seem weird but also i think made pro wrestling. Even though he was he'll seem like a respectable sport. This is a quote that he had that. I think summer i said i just read this. Two nights ago in the pro wrestling hall of fame the heels book. This is a quote from nick..

"Sounds like a Bobby Heenan ISM. It is. Yeah, I yeah. I have no idea. I assumed it was because his. Well was bat winging with his sack mate. Bat winging with his Sakhalin mate. You know, and your sex to your leg or whatever. And there's like that wings are sticks to your leg cactus, Jack in the back stage area. He's got catering dishes with Harlem globetrotter balls. And he's ready to come out and be hard core. And listen three pointers and Scott hoax. We'll be back after these words speaking about winging. What do you think? Valvoline, this will say in your hair. I'm gonna take some blue shoe. And I'm gonna take my dick. And it's going to get choppy chop eat off by p p. Hell knows. But somebody should've told them about that third. Is it right in the middle of his head vows challenging Jeff here to a ladder mouth to match later on the show and next up. We've got a hardcore handicap match so buckle your seats, boys and girls. What do you think? Sean Morley gets more appreciation is it because of this gimmick. I mean, obviously, the gimmick was at the right time in the right place and things like that. But it's actually a pretty good performer. But do you think that this sort of gets overlooked because the gimmick was was what was it? Does it really does Sean Morley? It was an excellent talent do believe that he could have been a a main event top guy. I think that the gimmick just held held them back from where you didn't wanna a former porn star in in your main event, you know, in that persona and that character. So I think that did hold him back into matter. What you did that albatross is always going to be hung around his neck. What guys be was turned down? A gimmick. Like that. Obviously there will be no more porn star giving coming. But I'm just saying if there is a gimmick that, you know, in your heart is not going to be the main event. How do you push back? I mean, you don't want to turn down WWE. You wanna take the offer?.
