"You could get you worry about casio, just the in ring product, the build a bill was our top priority, and some of the matches were good as we'll talk about. Before the opening match, they had Hank Aaron present the battle bowl ring from 1991 to staying at the irony of seeing Aaron standing next to Bill watts is probably lost on almost everyone watching later in the show before the battle royal Paul hornung pro football legend from the 60s did an interview talking about the value of a ring and showing his ring from winning the first Super Bowl in 1967. They tried to equate winning battle bowl with winning the Super Bowl, which is a stretch even for wrestling. It also downgraded the world title as if having two of them on the same show and putting them both on in the middle of the card so they came off as a prelim match doesn't downgraded enough already, says the observer and by acting like battle bowl was more important than the title belt. A lot to unpack here. Hank Aaron and the ring with Bill Meltzer points out its ironic was bill's previous comments and interviews ever thought of in the back of your head that they would come back to body. No, not really. I didn't think it would be, I mean, Hank Aaron and. What's really a contributing factor to cowboy eventually leaving. And so it was a little strange. But hey, we're just trying to play with all the whatever's there. Hank here is a famous guy at the time he held the home run record. He was a legend there in Atlanta. And it baseball in general. Sports world in general. Paul hornung thing was a little bit unique. I'm not sure who got Paul hornung lined up for us. Might have been Greg gagne. I'm not sure. But it's just a matter of having a star power from every generation. I mean, older football fans certainly remember Paul hornung, Notre-Dame, Heisman Trophy winner. Green Bay Packers, all these things. So I didn't see that hurt. I thought that days, well, they're trying to compare this to the Super Bowl. You know, get over it. God sakes. It's a ring. In a signifies success. That's all. And so that's kind of where we were on that deal. I thought that was really been picky, quite frankly. What was I Karen liked to work with? Fine. Always friendly. I don't know that Hank Aaron ever got the whole story of cowboys this scenario. But he was fine. He became many WCW appearances. Yeah, he liked wrestling. Yeah. Ironically, but I wish Aaron was a nice man. And it was cool for a baseball fan or a sports fan like me. To develop a relationship with it. So he was a good dude. He was a good deed in that regard. I think that he didn't get the entire story of cowboys, you know, alleged racism. He didn't do his homework, mister Aaron. Cowboy was, if you go back and look at his history, he was far from a racist. But to me, that is a may, that's a story that got out. That's how he was, he was imprinted and that's where it stayed. And again, sadly all right, let's get into the matches in their please get into the goddamn matches. There's really no heat and only one of them will be considered pretty decent. Our first one van hammer and Dan spivey be cactus Jack and Johnny B badd in 6 minutes and 51 seconds. They seem uncomfortable working together, which hurt the match, bad pulled off a hot move early with a frankensteiner, which wasn't referred to by any name into a DDT, finished so bad, hit the punch on his own partner. And Jack was schoolboy by hammer, half a star, cactus chat Guinea pinned by van hammer seems like a crime in retrospect, but how difficult is it for these guys to put together a match like this? Well, their styles were also different. The experience levels are varying, the wrong guy want. Mix it on the match. He had more potential that he was easy to get along with. I've always been a big dance 5 fan. Dan Dan, the left handed man. One of my favorite characters of all time, waylon mercy. That was Danny spivey. Did a great job as weyland mercy. So I would have probably put Mick over with unbiased regarding me because everybody knows. So because again, I sit in my ways, van hammer, nice kid. Good luck. Wasn't ready. And big Nick foley was not going to make him ready. Mistake on our part. You see, you know, you see some of these matches now in retrospect, and you say, man, if I just throw these names in, we should have a good match on our hands. This one, you just see those names and like you said, hammer, spivey, cactus Jack, Johnny be bad, like you said, out of the gate, we got a close style clash. We've got just things that are unavoidable. It just seemed like that was hard from the get go with those guys. Yeah, and probably not the kind of man she went over the show with. You don't open the show with something that's seems to be a little bit awkward. Or less action than you would ideally want. So again, I just thought that the decision to put the big green rookie babyface over was ill advised. Second match of the night, Dustin Rhodes and big fan Vader beat kensuke sasaki and barbarian in 6 minutes and 56 seconds barbarian was bad and I can't recall sasaki doing much, finished all barbarian accidentally closed on sasaki and with schoolboy by rose for the pan, the finished look familiar after the match Vader clothesline roads and left him laying JR was this just a lack of communication that the same finish really takes places in two matches in a row? Yeah, damn right it was. You got this big booking committee of all these wrestlers. What the fuck are you guys doing? Well, seriously. Pay attention. Just pay attention. You know, your name's on it. And I don't know the guy took ownership of things as they should, but your name's on this damn thing, man. So, yeah, that's unacceptable. And I just remember that match just being one that didn't have an overwhelming amount of effort. Guys are, you know, just not good. And it should have been better. It should have been better. On the high spot of the matches, Vader clothes lining

"It was hungry. I think Christian really wanted to be a single star. And not necessarily his first preference. Suppose it to be a tag team star. Even though he would have done it, I needed done a great job with it. Let's talk about somebody else who would have done a great job with it. Of course we're talking about our old pal, mister orndorff. It's written in the observer that they're not exactly sure what he's going to be doing because some of the stuff has already leaked, meaning they thought maybe it was going to be him and Ron Simmons since they did the TV stuff, but the booking sheets have leaked, that it's going to be Dan spivey versus Ron Simmons. But more concerning is their own magazine, the WWE magazine has already told the story of Barry Windham turning on Dustin Rhodes. Those magazines hit the newsstands the day before it happens on live TV clash of the champions. Is this just a function of the left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing or are we getting too big for our britches, talk me through this? No, it's communication, lack of structure, you know, left hand, you hit the nail on the head, as simple as that. hand not knowing what the right hand is doing. And it ended up being a very embarrassing scenario. Because you're not talking about two ham and eggers. No. You're talking about major, major stars for us. You're tag teams. Yeah. Yeah, so how that slipped out like that or whatever. Is still a head shaker. Well, it's a head shaker when we see Bill watts on the 900 number. He's going to set the record straight and say, no, no, WCW's paying for guys medical expenses if they got injured on the job. We're just not paying them. But if they wanted to secure their income, they had to write my Lloyd's London policy if they wanted to protect themselves. And if they don't, well, that's on them. And Meltzer would say the Lloyd's premiums these days go for about $17,000 a year. And he suspects that that figure will rise rapidly over the next year. That's a lot of money now. Certainly a lot of money back then, especially based on the new watts pay structure, did you think it was quote unquote fair, but if a guy gets legitimately injured and he gets sent home, we're not paying him. No, that's fair. Yeah. You don't do that. But it was a strange, so many strange decisions were being made. Right. We've revealed so many strange decisions and things that didn't make any sense. This could have been done to fix that. You and I have not just simply sit down here today to identify problems. We have discussed solutions to those problems. And I will tell you that a lot of those solutions were discussed. You know, I still work in closer cowboy, whether I liked it or not. Because this is guilt by association. And the more he cowboy got on him, the more dripped down to me. And I didn't think that was fair. Nobody's

"And luckily, I believe that somewhere down the road, and this is not coming from Tony Kahn or anybody else. It's just logical to me. With all the ever building relationship with new Japan and AEW that somewhere down the road, we'll see okada in an AEW ring for a big show. Why wouldn't we? Right. And so I know at least that's my and that this may be fanboy and JR wanted to do some amateur booking. Because I really believe Ocado absolutely amazing. Absolutely amazing. And we got and the guys like Kenny and Adam Cole gets back and there's a dozen Moxley. I'm actually in Ocado I'm buying. CM Punk, I'm on in. I want to call that. I mean, I'll be there. So I just think that there was language issues, date issues, but if we could have ever gotten that plan in place where there was a systematic way of entering and exiting WCW by these outside talents would have been a lot better off. We didn't have a good plan. We were supposed to have barbarian team up with Dan spivey, but he had plans to go to Japan. So the story they tell on the show, ironic, we're just talking about that. Is the cactus Jack called spivey and told him to stay home. I'm bringing in Butch Reed, who knows more about Ron Simmons than any one. So it's going to be barbarian and Butch Reed, taken on Dustin Rhodes and Barry Windham, and what a tag team they were. They go 8 minutes and 13 seconds, barbarian actually pins Windham after a foot to the face. Meltzer will take roads took one great bump after missing a shoulder tackle, Wyndham sold the finished great, but it was just okay, two stars. I could see how, you know, roads and Windham could tear it up, but maybe barbarian and Butch rate weren't the right opponents here, but you're definitely getting a flavor for what cowboy likes, right? I think so, but they weren't ready. They were ready for a big time event on TV. They had no story. They had no angle. It's cold. And when you're dealing with a cold product in a very even as cold overall product, in other words, we weren't setting the world on fire to start with. So you bring in two guys who are both good hands, you know, a lot of respect for those guys. But they didn't have any buildup, there was no anticipation built for this situation. And so another case of booking things before they were ready to go. And the fans reacted by silence. Next up, we've got Rick rude and Jake Roberts and big van Vader and the super invader, his Hercules Hernandez, taking on sting, the Steiner, and koloff in an elimination tag match, which goes 15 minutes and 15 seconds. This is a big time match, Rick invader are gonna work hotspots together and they're the highlight of the match according to Meltzer and he even says the highlight of the whole card, the first fall would see koloff pinned in 7 26 after Jake pinned him after he collided with rude. Staying with the pen invader in 36 seconds with a face buster for the second fall. The third fall is back to Vader and Rick Steiner and their trading power moves, and Rick tries to stand up with Vader on his shoulders, but 395 pounds of dead weight, staring at the bottom, made this a bad idea. At least he didn't tear out his lower back because with that much weight and it gets shaky, that's pretty dangerous according to Meltzer. Scott's going to get the cue to three minutes and 32 seconds for coming off the top, with a clothesline invader. That's a DQ and Bill watts WCW. And they attempt the road warrior finisher, but Rick couldn't get Vader up. So Rick is counted out in 55 seconds, and they give rude a neck breaker on the floor, which leaves sting against three. So rude and sting are both on the Vader comes off the top and accidentally splashes both men. So now Vader's d-q'd and staying in rude are left four dead, and the crowd starts chanting DDT, DDT, and Robert's drag route over to the corner, tagged in and gets the pin with the DDT in 46 seconds. Meltzer loved it called it the best match on the card and gave it three and a quarter stars. On paper, it looks odd, but a boy it worked and they were buying it that day, were they not? Yeah, maybe they're just ready for something. Because it sounds your description sounds a little herky jerky. Yes. And it didn't seem like there was any obvious attempts to build continuity, tell a story, because things kept happening, boom, boom boom. And maybe that's what maybe that's what that show needed. Because they had reacted this way yet. And there had been some pretty good talent in the ring, prior to this cluster. Listen, man, I know it sounds too good to be true, but I want you to just do me a favor and run on over to save with Conrad dot com. Get yourself a quick quote. My man Andy M just left us a 5 star review over at Conrad reviews dot com and he had this to say. The effort and communication from Josh was above and beyond. We ran into several unexpected hiccups along the way, but Josh kept us informed and kept looking for options to get things done. In the end, we were still able to refinance to a 15 year loan and we're going to be able to pay it off in ten, and we took enough cash out to pay off our credit cards, my truck loan, and even buy my wife her very first new vehicle.

"Ron Simmons are one thing about it. You can't rest on his laurels, the rematch is already been signed with big fanbase. With the intensity in the WCW, nobody can rest on their laurels. But you're right, the champion or ex champion has a man. God damn it. That's going to be a war, because you got Harley race, and he will be focused, and he will be focused on Ron. So Meltzer goes on here. He said, these angles were kept pretty much of a secret while there were a few wrestlers that knew ahead of time that Simmons was winning the title, and many wrestlers who knew the title was changing in Baltimore, but some needed to believe it was sting that was going to get the belt and everyone knew something big was going to happen, although exactly what was a well kept secret and Baltimore supposedly neither Vader nor Simmons knew for sure about the title change until they got to the building that night. That's true. Most of the wrestlers were shocked backstage when Robert showed up doing the angle, even though it was generally assumed Roberts was the bad bob on the August booking sheets and there were some expectations that he would debut at center stage the previous Monday. Roberts wasn't backstage before the show began, and almost nobody even knew he was in the building or in town until he did the angle. So JR talked to us about why the importance of keeping the boys, I guess. Because they had the big mouse, Paul, they talk. They want to make themselves relevant by having more information than their neighbor. Hey, did you hear what's going on, brother, and brother and brother? It's ego. It's insecurities. And I love this guy's gang. When Dan's spider became waylon mercy, he gained a fan for life for me. I love that characterization in WWE at the time. Danny was just he's perfect in that role. Do you think though it came a little bit too late for him in his career after that hard bumping in Japan and of course? Yeah, he was beat up. And well, this dude here, he should get an answer for that haircut. I don't know how. What do they use a bowl? I don't even know. I don't know. That's that mo how hard haircut. And then he's got the rat tail though to finish it off. Of course. Yeah. But so they have him here spivey. You plug the wrestling hotline. You mentioned guys like Bret Hart, Ric Flair and Ted dibiase will be discussed, and these are all WWF guys. At JR, I mean, obviously trying to just drum up more hotline dollars and discuss it. I guess when gene came to work for WCW, Gina made a deal to run the hotline. And he also made a deal over here to get a piece. And other guys got paid. I never got the first check on the hotline. Never made a dime ever. And I had the hottest night Saturday, and it generated more revenue than anybody else, but I never got paid for it. I'm not complaining about this. I'm not going to. But it was just a whole different system. And gene came in and changed that. Of course, they had to do it to get him hired. Man, could you imagine a red ass JR hotline? How fun that would have been back in the day. Oh God, like you just spitting, spitting some red ass. You're on the show. People would have paid all kinds of money per minute to hear that. Look, we got the dragon sleeper, Dan spivey with the big win, but man, he had to look your right JR. The look, the charisma, the scary eyes, Danny's a good guy, too, boy. Overcome a lot as clean and sober. You know, he's married to Ann Russo, who was one of my assistants at WWE for so many years. They lived down here in Florida. I haven't seen Dan in a long time, but he's seems to be doing well healthy, but man, they always cause a temporary Dan Dan, the left hand man because he would knock your ass smooth out in a street fight that left hand. So he was he had a great reputation in that Tampa saint Pete area. Bad dude. I always liked Dan. Well, there we go, promoting the WCW fan club show now, but I wonder how that's going. Yeah. Well, hey, this is going to be a fun one because look, two of your favorite wrestlers are in the ring. Chris Sullivan and James moats. I think they're about to get their ass kicked, JR, because here comes the junkyard dog and mister Hughes. They were calling them big cat at the time. Yeah, mister Hughes, the big old Curtis Curtis Scott talked about Curtis's wrestling school that are based in Atlanta. At that point in time he just did his most athletic move of the night. His dance on the old dance on the apron? I don't know which ones to Chris Sullivan. Nobody does JR. I guess it doesn't matter. No. It does if you're James Sullivan's family, I guess. It does. James moats and Chris Sullivan, whoever they, yeah. Look how big courtesy is, man. Play defensive tackle for the Kansas state mile cat. I used to tell they started beating his

"On that piece of business. So, but he was over, but I like this right. Vance wanted to see sting succeed. And him getting a nice rub, the house shows working the main events. As he's in tags, he takes the fall that kind of thing. Seemed to work to start working out decently. From the standpoint of disappointment and frustration, that's a personal thing with Steve Borden. He had to live with himself that this thing just didn't work. And they cruel irony of that is, it didn't work, but everybody knew that it should and could work. Yes. I should get all the pieces together, put it back into place and start a plan, if it takes us a year, but we have a destination that we're going to. We know on this day that this pay per view is staying is going to become the champion. And the smart money might have been you wanting to become the champion at the end of the day, against layer. Until then, or you're rebuilding staying with a succession of wins and getting him away from the horsemen, exclusively, flair could have been working with other people, helping other guys and making other guys feel like a star. But that might have been thinking too deeply. I'm not sure. Well, the first challenge here for flair is not going to be staying. It's going to be Scott Steiner and boy Scott still has. I like that. Yes. That sounds good, right? That sounds great. I mean, everybody knew Scott Steiner had all the tools to be a top guy. One of the most jacked up physically impressive guys on the roster, arguably had the hottest move in the whole business with frankensteiner. Yeah, it makes a lot of sense. But for whatever reason, the match didn't click, Scott has contended for all these years that he felt like flair sandbagged him, and a lot of people in the newsletters at the time said the same thing. And I know today's episode is about staying. Maybe that's a conversation for another day, but at clash of the champions, we see sting and Luger team up to take on doom and Dan spivey is going to interfere. And he's going to attack Luger before butcher E thrift sting over the top rope for the DQ. But somehow we wind up with Dan spivey and Lex Luger in a situation here. I don't know that that's what I would have picked for either one of those guys in hindsight. Me neither. Neither one were ready for that role. Like I said, Dan is 5 you never really found his creative home until you can't waylon mercy. When Dan's father came away to mercy, he became special. And he was booked half hazardly, skyscrapers, this partner, that partner, whatever, and Dan was always a reliable as hell. I think the business, the rest of business needed more dance 5 years in it, but the way that he was being booked was never going to get into the promised land. So yeah, I like dance work, but the way the mercy character I sit here on the show is one of my favorite personas that I work with as George the hell out of it. Those vignettes take produced on him. We're just I still think about them. They're very good. Really good. I want to mention this whole Luger sting thing becomes a bit of a thing as a tac team. Because we would see them take on Sid Vicious and stay enhancing at the Omni, and then take on flare and sit in both Philadelphia and Baltimore as a kid, I absolutely loved the pairing of Luger and sting. As someone on the inside of the business, what did you think of that? Was it too much of the good stuff? What we have gotten more mileage and building a card if we had these over baby faces in different situations or was there something wrestling fans always want new? Is this the way we get a new coat of paint on these guys putting them together? I think it rejuvenates both guys a little bit. It was great artwork for a poster for a graphic lex and staying their young and vibrant physiques. So there are a lot of positives to that situation. Without somebody starting already out there and real and JR land that, yeah, they work. Well, sometimes working is a extremely important, obviously. Hello. But it's not the only thing. If they were a great workers and they were obese lobs, then what do you got? Yeah. You got two pretty good workers at OB Slavs, not only to watch that. That's like watching ugly women. I just think that it's a visual business television business. And people ought to be pleased visually and Luger and staying for the kids out there and sting's face paint. They're big muscles or tans and all that. The women loved them. So I thought it was here's how to ask you this Conrad in response. Why not? Why not try it? Are we doing something better? Are we holding all something guaranteed to be better? No. Is this newer? Yes. Are you featured to your top earners? Absolutely. So why not? So let's also mention that even though maybe that title run wasn't what anyone hoped it was for staying, staying winds up being presented the pro wrestling illustrated award for wrestler of the year and inspirational wrestler of the year by Bill after, and I know people look at that sometimes and I say, oh, the PWI awards. But buddy, back in 91, that was a pretty cool deal. I mean, their distribution was major. And that meant that your top guy is going to be on the cover of that magazine. That's a great thing not only for sting, but the promotion, right? Yeah, good PR, good, merchandising, good marketing. A lot of wins there in those awards because they were looked at and like you said, entirely different than as they are now. I mean, every website has got an award award edition, it seems like. Yeah. You know, males have been doing his awards addition for probably 30 years. And a lot of people follow his lead in that world. So consequently, there's awards or I don't want to say a dime a dozen because that's disparaging, but you can get a little overkill on the rest of the year, all that stuff. And they don't understand what the criteria was to be to earn that distinction. But in any event, staying getting those two awards on a very challenging year for him is professional was very, very well timed..

I hate that damn train sound so right. Now we're watching. Every bischoff got his position not as the executive producer of this or but on the on wrestling period. wasn't just because ted turner and said. Hey if we wanted to compete. We but like the show on monday nights or whatever i forgot how they came in because The work awa announcer there. Okay and he got the job were there because they said that he a he.

Davis says he has so It was an immediate appeal because they thought that people would see him and see john davidson then when he got one when awa close and Wwf at the time boarded out and shit. This was buying the territories right so He got he got a gig with ted turner and now he's brought right up into management.

I sat in the meetings. I know what it is you know. Gimme gimme a shot. I i think that this time around there. Change the brokers at the dusty swear this time period it's a console them another doing the dungeon of doom story right which we'll get into that when we see them later right so right now we just watched Basically pasta mania running around. Explain what that was basically the hulk hogan shameful. Excuse to for merchandise. Because i've basically brought up like michael jordan has a restaurant. chicago will hold. Hogan has his birth pasta shop here in the mall of america. Right am i. That's exactly where you guys are going to check it out. Where which is a season one. I hate the way they do. Yeah episode one season one. Wcw monday nitro. At the mall of america in minneapolis minnesota. This is our flares back after. Leaving w w e w we have for some time two years after two years after before the book was taken away from him after he didn't he didn't wanna job so macho man at the bash earlier in the year so they took the book away from them and then. That's one kind of sylvan. Got it right and by the way. That was probably one of the most genius. Did 'cause sullivan is probably one of the most underrated hookers in. We'll we'll we'll see his creativity later on so we get We actually do so many times. Cover awad stinging flare. We only we only only go do like an hour. So we're just going to a couple of things here. We just wanted to talk about. What voice yeah so So he We also had what hogan was at his vinnie. Wcw for how long now. This was a year and a half. Okay i run right so bischoff. This went through his beach house. And of course we have this idea for you. You come in. And basically that's got back into lesson and of course hogan was like let's bring wrestling eighties back into the nineties. So he would bring in. His runs. The macho man hacksaw. Jim duggan jimmy. Hart buddhists that barbara beefcake and we. Now we're just right now. We just see we just seeing the appearance of lex luger. Now explain why this is important in wrestling history because his contract was just up and he wrestled leave the house shows on the weekend. He didn't know. I believe he was at a pay per view the day. Before because saying that He was planning to work out with the day before this I believe in connecticut right and said sorry. I have other things to do this right right right right and he appears just this was after the lex express crashed. Exactly this no by. I think it was one of those instances like that. His contract had just elapse right right that w so bad right. I remember him saying he won't gave them a like a low ball number. Because you know why who took it. You know why. D- wanted w bagri. Well because sting wanted him back exactly because the gym buddies the owner jim together right and stink which ends up being a catastrophe later on and later on in that in that friendship. I'm not even sure if anybody. But i think there's still i still fresh because it was like some some some bad blood that happening for awhile. Apparently someone was running illiberal or too much about People's infidelities so he shows up. And i believe in the middle of another push. I believe berg tournament. He'll because i think we're supposed to be something where adventures gonna turn them. He'll go against a face diesel right. That might have been what vince wanted to do with luger. 'cause when we went to wwf. All the lex express The sumo to body slam yokozuna right and him winning by count out at summer slam not win the title. It was pretty much a bus because for two years bust. Not bus bust boston would. It's he because pretty much they were.

"Looked like champions. You know why because we are right to the ring fans. There's a new sports drama series on stars and it said in the world of indy wrestling heels follows. A family owned wrestling promotion as two brothers wore over control of the league and their late. Father's legacy ace and jack spades rivalry both and out of the ring is the main event brother versus brother hero versus. He'll even see -em punk aesthetic back onto the mat for cameo alexander. Ludwig plays a spade the beloved hero young hotshot and the star of the duffy wrestling league outside the ring a struggles to reconcile his idol status with this habit for self destruction. Stephen a male plays his brother in league. He'll jack spade is hardworking. Proprietor husband and father is trying to breathe new life into the wwl. Heels is available to watch now on stars and the stars app. So we got that out of order ordering our playback. Clearly that was the promo earlier in the show. And then of course. The sam houston upset. And the surprise. America's team is here but man from oli That was great stuff we look like and because we are which was just phenomenal and i know you love that bandanna line to gotta plug for world war. So what the hell he. She should get paid for that them. Sure on that's how that's how easy it was to just go ahead and take whatever angle you're in and expanded. Give yourself more import. You know opponents. That's all he did is he just created two more opponents to rocket express. And that's the thing. I wanted to give some credit for. You know he's trying to set up matches obviously for the house shows and the sell tickets but she got so much going on. You know you got the rock enrolls and now you got the same houston thing and who could forget the dusty and magnum thing totally is a little involve there a lot of moving parts here. Dorton arena september fourth through and singles action against sam houston on the eighth. It's going to be magnum. Manny and ron bass taken on tully oli and arn another monkhouse mass this matinee and asheville on september eighth There another matinee that same day on september eighth as the promotion continues to grow this time. It's albany georgia at the civic center. but that night Marietta georgia is the evening. Show on the ninth once again. A pair of shows in a b. One show in greenville south carolina. That's where you would find only aren't taking on a flare and magnum or not flare but dusty and magnum and on the ninth The that same day. They're running augusta georgia. And how about this for main of black bart versus ron garvin I think i would have rather been in. Greenville disrespect. But i'm glad i was I wanna mention the the interesting thing about the show in greenville. Check this out The barbarian versus starship eagle. Who we know. Is dan spivey. Terry taylor joel deaton sam houston and abdul the butcher poor sam And then the rock and roll express versus the midnight express to a forty five minute time limit. Draw right after that it's Dusty and magnum taken only an arm and then in the main event. How about this for a rare match. The world champion. Ric flair against the united states. Champion totally blanchard. I know we're right around the corner from the horsemen but that's an interesting matchup. And your main and co main event. He got the whole band. Represented all of the horsemen. America's team. it starts to feel like all right. We've got our players here. In september of eighty five. At least to me. You said flair versus totally. Yeah well that is random he'll versus. He'll on top And of course we know you know. Eventually we're going to get things back together. But i would have never guessed. That was a match that would have happened in eighty five but here it is well at and at that time without us having a history really together other than just some some random tags and stuff there was no big relationship with flair. And telling right so if you think about it it's not really so far fetched that totally would wanna go after the world champion. I guess but it's also such a rare match that also looking at it now in hindsight and knowing the history that came after an and with the horsemen deal It just seems like that's a match. You would wanna built for six weeks and made a really big deal out of it you know. But they were all hindsight's twenty twenty and it was a random match. I'm sure they tore the joint down. I'm sure the world champion prevailed and certainly didn't hurt totally blanchard at the shelby rick center. I think we're going to do something. pretty big. I think i have that right It's going to air on the fourteenth. But we're going to record it on september tenth This is going to be on the ww pro. Senator tapings and worldwide. Did both the same day. But sam houston has found himself in a predicament. He's been found beaten in a parking lot. Let's take a listen team over there. Something bad having a sam. Talk about fight tony. I need to go by god. Listen you don't need to find out what happened on now. I need to find out what happened here. You go ahead and take all right go ahead. Go ahead and see what happened. Kerry taylor came right up here to rinkside idea what happened. But terry taylor came right up to rig cited said something happened. Something bad happened to.

"That he was interested in my career said some very very nice saying some complimentary things and just appreciated getting to spend some time with him. And this is one of wanted to ask you about for awhile. Charlotte north carolina. August second nineteen eighty-five. You're the national tag team champion. But you're in singles action second match on the card against starship eagle who we know was going to go on to become dan spivey the real life dan spivey Any memories of working with a young spy here in august of eighty-five nobody that particular match. I don't remember. But i know that spivey is one of those guys number one. He was georgia football player. Which was feather in his cap where i was concerned because i was georgia boy. Still to this day of georgia fan. Which you don't like to hear conrad in your defense. We don't seem to get in you guys way whatever you wanna do every year. So what the hell. That's stop at some point. I dunno danny spivey was just a big rugged rawal bone you and he was just athletic. You know spy guess. Danny would probably be what he thinks. Six six six always big fella. Yeah six seven three hundred pounds and you know athletic as it could be and he was just kind of getting started and you could this tale he was gonna do well in the business and i just remember watching him on. Tv every chance. That i got just to see how is progressing and he really did well and had a pretty good run in the business i I wanted to make note of something that happened pretty special the very next day august third were in florence south carolina and In the main event it's the nwf tag team champions. Ricky and robert taking on the national tag team champions oli orne and then all my research arm. I believe this is the very first time you shared ring with ricky morton and robert gibson considering how many great matches you had over the years with the rock and roll express and what a big part you were in their career and they were in your career. This is the first time it ever happened. August third thousand nine hundred five florence south carolina or your first impressions of the rock and roll express. Well it was outdoor show if it was in florence it would have been football stadium and you know. I had watched them arrival date in jim. Crockett promotions budgets approximately. I know it was eighty five. But i'm not i don't remember off the top of my head i could public that I was just one just to make a comment that you know if it had been there a couple weeks or a couple of months or whatever they were guys that you know the reaction from day one almost like. After the first time our audience saw them. I would think first time. They came out of the gate. Our audience would have said well. Who are those guys because again. It was local. Tv if you didn't have bill watch tv or you didn't have memphis tennessee tv. You didn't know who these guys were. July ninth so less than a month in so they've been there a month three weeks and change. I would have had time to have their first week where people didn't know who they were. But i guarantee you the excitement that field. The room that i debut match would have encompassed all of our audience members. They would've went good. God who are these guys but they sure are exciting and man they they would have flamed up right away so i would have had three weeks to a watch. Them on television You know tape. The show came back home. Watched it whatever and rot away. It was you know these guys. I knew were gonna be huge baby faces new. The girls are gonna love him. The kids are going to love the the older audience. We're gonna love them. They were just likeable guys and just full of energy and to be in the rain with those guys without really having you know a long conversation with them we would see each other. A little bit at on wednesdays. Doing promos you know. Were all underneath the same roof but everybody kind of kept to themselves because she wanted to keep your head in the game and it wasn't a visitation dale. It was we had to get promos knocked out for all those local markets because we still had to drive to raleigh for a house. Show that so. I guess the point. I'm trying to get to as we were all just sitting around. Get to know each other right. But i would watch them on tv and i saw where they were having an like a rocket ship and straight to the moon. These guys were getting over week to week and the first time we walked in the ring with them and you know only was kind of stuck in that you know these guys are too little you know what the hell you know. We should just beat him up. This is what i can see going through his head. He never said that to me. But i can just tell the way. Initially he started working with them was until he saw the on. Its bought it. They bought these guys and they believed him. And you know they got behind him and it didn't take me long which is about thirty seconds to decide. Hey i'm gonna go in here and do my best in order to get these guys over only was going to be a harder sale because he just came from that old school. You know a wrestler should be so big and so tall and so tough and all these things and there really wasn't a place for anybody. There was less than that. But i saw it right away and he would chuma ass out. Starting that night about maui. Taken all those goofy bumps and i just kept my mouth shut in my answer to myself was kasese. Guys are are huge money and i could tell it then and i wanted them to go back and go. I wanna work with that guy again versus down. What a hard ass whose guys are have pulling teeth trying to get them to sell for us but You know already then a month they and those guys were already own. Fire all right. Here's something you probably already knew. Lord knows i discovered it a long time ago. You sleep better when it's cooler.

"Couldn't be here without the hall of famer himself the founder of the four horsemen the creator of the spine. Buster ladies and gentlemen. Here he is. It's our own anderson aren't how are you man houser by going good man better than i deserve excited me here. I'm loving what we're doing taking a walk through memory lane and of course we're talking about july of nineteen eighty five today. We tease at the end of last week's episode. But you guys are going to be in. Greenville south carolina on july first. And they're doing ten team battle royal where the winner gets fifty grand. So i guess you only split the brand. Yeah supposedly you won twenty five thousand dollars that night. You're into the purse so we won that yeah. Does this surprise you to tell you. Bless you thank you sorry without chakma still being a male yes something about that sometimes happens that one i would have remembered whatnot. How would think so money out of money especially in those days what you like about about a royal anything not one single thing and i don't think anybody will tell you different knows her way around a business. It was too easy for people to get involved in this thing to get caught up in their own fistfight and step on you. Low achy knee elbow you in the back of the head there. So many things that could happen about a royal. Because it's just it's pitch up and smear with a bunch of grown men and if you've got a prize that big man they're turning it on and it's not a safe place to be it's a. It's a match that i've never heard any wrestler. Say that they actually enjoyed. And i know a lot of fans really love it but Still it's it's the shits. Yep i've heard gallo's say forearm forearm forearm forearm say call about a royal forearm. Four on yeah or the couple more for forearm forearm and the guys that were smart. But it really didn't do a whole lot for your career were the ones they were four corners and you tried to find one of those corners and get your back into it so you could watch everything that was going on and the rain that avoided anything happening behind you. But they're only four of those and once you got there and got settled in most guys didn't like to give that corner up but it didn't leave the aged to a bunch of excitement. If you were in the corner well a couple of days. After that on july third you're going to be at the dorton arena and how about this. It's another tag team battle royal this time. Ivan crusher khrushchev win it. I guess this was just the flavor of the week the other participants in this battle royale are of course magnum. Ta manny fernandez the barbarian and superstar. Billy graham of course you and only jimmy valiant and starship eagle catch everybody up on who starship eagle is. I've been a lot of people. don't recall. who is it. all come on you know who starship eagle was. I really don't scott hall. I didn't remember that. Yeah he came in with a coyote in eagle american starship. Of course coyote was very young. Dan spivey But yeah scott hall here working as starship he goal. How long did that last night very long at all. I think he got his big break with you guys Helping cleaned the ballpark for crockett and then worked his way in here. And he's gonna find some greener pastures up in the awa has some success there and then he's off to the races also in this mash. Buddy landale kendo nagasaki. That's a name. We've spent much time talking about any good kendo nagasaki stories you can share with us kind of double back scott hall that three often. I don't remember like he. That was when he was really big to he was he was a big up. Dude would not remember that. I don't know that must've been a real short stay. I don't think he was there for long less for sure. There's a new sports drama series on stars and it's set in the world of indy wrestling. Heels follows a family owned wrestling promotion as two brothers war over control of the league and their late. Father's legacy ace and jack spades rivalry. Both in and out of the ring is the main event brother versus brother hero versus. He'll even see in punk a stepping back onto the map for a cameo alexander. Ludwig plays a spade to beloved hero. Young hotshot and the star of the duffy wrestling league outside the ring a struggles to reconcile his idol status with this habit for self-destruction saving a male plays his brother and league. He'll jack spade is hard working. Proprietor husband and father is trying to breathe new life into the wwl. Don't miss heels. Premiering sunday august fifteenth only on stars and the stars app had a you know awa at a real good run. Yeah oh well that's probably just my memory playing tricks on me moving on. What was the next question. Kendo nagasaki and you got handle stories. Okay yeah you know. He had that look he had that minjah outfit. I think he had the before mood ahead. The missed muna thinks stolen from him right. I think so. i think it's borrowed. Maybe is the term. They prefer maybe bought on on insult anybody. But i know kendall had it. He was Jj dylan had managed him at some point during his career. I think prior to this maybe in texas or no. That wasn't jj was. Where's the other guy with the bald head. That gary hart. Gary hart. I think that was. The association was familiar with maybe from dallas prior to him coming to crockett or was that afterwards. You know. I don't recall off the top of my head. Let's keep running through the list here. Though we got dick slater and bus sawyer. Ron bass and bus tyler pats knock on danny brown and stoney burke and sam houston haven't spent much time at all talking about stoney burke and he gets tony stories now stony was one of those guys that i think probably pass through pretty quickly that i don't recall if i saw a picture of him. I might sam. Houston we've started figuring out was pretty pretty talented around that time Stoney burke july fourth the next day you're back in the omni man you guys are running the omni. A ton here tells you where the businesses interesting to note here. In july of eighty five. The opening match has bobby eaton and dennis kandari so Kinda co cool little footnote in history when you think about it. The main event is flared magnum. Ta but somewhere in the middle now. It's only an arn against buys and brett sawyer. So it's been a buzz and dick slater. Now it's buzz and brett sawyer so it's family versus family. I like that. Yep me too personal issue. You could skip around when you shoot an idol conrad and you'll remember this in those days. If it was something that really worked you could get away from it for a couple of weeks and still be promoting. Say that there wasn't a show that had those participants the andersons sawyer's say three weeks away. You could still be promoting it and reminding people with a clip on tv. Hey member this happened a week ago two weeks ago and you can keep it fresh without having to just jump and run to that match so the fact that we doubled back in that was now. Brett and buzz is our opponents. People still remembered to pothead. It was still pretty clear in their mind. I want to mention. You're actually gonna miss a couple of shows here. You're gonna miss july fifth and on that's an appearance in richmond. Virginia you were originally supposed to be in a tag match against bass and tyler. Eventually they get deaton. Tatum to substitute for you. And only you're also supposed to be in the main event which once again is a tintin battle royal. But you're not there so instead it's a nine team battle. Royal any idea why you would have missed the show here on the fifth day after the fourth of july.
