Remember it's a Sunday afternoon, 3 p.m. start in the Omni. Now the card has not yet been finalized, but I'm going to tell you what I know on the event. Big van Bader will defend the WCW World's heavyweight championship in the Omni on Sunday afternoon, February the 7th. Also, sting will go one on one with Paul orndorff, and I understand by just a rumor. I don't know if it's going to happen or not, but I understand that Medusa may accompany Paul orndorff to ringside, which could be an interesting situation. Plus, a 6 man elimination tag team match has been inked as well when you lose a fall or a decision you must return to the locker room. Ricky steamboat, Shane Douglas, and Dustin Rhodes will meet flying Brian Pillman, stunning Steve Austin and Barry Windham. That should be a tremendous contest.

Here on the program and we'll hit these dates again a little bit later in the broadcast. As I said, we're here with cactus Jack in our studios here in Atlanta. We're going to be taking your telephone calls 8 7 two zero 7 51 800 WSB talk all the lines are blinking again and we are going to get as many owners we can as we said and we're going to talk to Steven in stockbridge. Stephen you're in rest of the Jim Ross and cactus Jack. Uh, I'm not asking who on the king of cable might just arcade. The king of cable matches starrcade was one by sting. He defeated big van Vader and cactus. He used some very unique strategy. He almost, it seemed as if he wanted to extend the Vader to perhaps, let him punch himself out. I heard the analogy kind of like Muhammad Ali and George Foreman and Zaire, Africa where George Foreman just literally punched himself out and had nothing left. I don't think it was a case of big van Vader having nothing left. I think it was just a case of sting having a little bit more. He said he went out before the match and said that he was going to tire van Vader out and that's exactly what he did. I was speaking to you before when I said on a firsthand basis that was one of the top 5 matches ever seen in my life. So it leads me to ask, what kind of wars are these two going to have when it's no longer the king of cable on the line, but the world's heavyweight champion? Very good point. Steven, thanks for your call. Let's talk to Frank in Atlanta, Frank. You're in wrestling with Jim Ross and cactus Jack and thanks for calling. Hey, Jim, I've got two quick questions. Okay. First of all, what is Brent? Why is Poland or coming out of retirement? Well, he's not coming out of retirement like in the last few months. Paul's been resting quite a great deal. I think up in smoky mountain wrestling and he's been doing some other independent circuits in that type thing. So he decided to make another run at it and even though Paul is about, you know, I'm 41 today as a matter of fact. Thank you. And I live that long. I said, it's amazing. But he keeps himself in great shape. I really believe that the guys got a lot of competitiveness left in him. And I think the guy could be a major player here in WCW if he could stay healthy. Great, secondly, Jack. I have to check. I think you could be translated. You know I made that about four months ago in van Vader or 6 months ago in van Vader was the heavyweight champion of the world. I said, now wouldn't that be an interesting match? Do immovable object against the or the immovable force against the unstoppable object? I think it would be a matchmaker's dream. No, I'm not quite sure I'd have to go home and really think about ways to beat van Vader because to tell you the truth in my mind, there is none coming to it. But I certainly welcome the chance. I just hope I'm working hard to try to get enough wins under my belt to be considered. Frankly, appreciate your call tonight and thank you very much here on the program. Let's talk to David in ostell. David you're on wrestling with Jim Ross and cactus Jack. Thanks for holding. Hey, Jim. How you doing? Good. Happy birthday. Well, thank you. How are you, cactus? Good. All right, Jim. I got a couple of quick comments here. Okay. I just like to tell you that I was lucky enough to have front row seats for starrcade. All good. The crew treated the fans really good? On that event. And the wrestling was exceptional. Yeah, some of those golden circle tickets, huh? Yes, sir. Good day, well, those were choice seats, and I was envious. If I guarantee you if I was a fan, that's where I would have wanted to set if I could if that was. They had a VIP party for the fans, where you could get autographs from some of the superstars. Good deal. But Jim, what I call about is I'm really mad about this situation with arn Anderson.

"And I like that scenario. I like the passing along the information. The skull session is cooling down after a show having a Bruce here something and talking to the match over. Those are invaluable times. And steamboat was able to master. So I thought it worked out okay. The tag titles were anemic anyway, Conrad. So Lisa gave people something to talk about. No doubt, no doubt. They're going to lose the titles on January 16th, arn Anderson and Bobby Eaton at a house show in Jacksonville and we know that he's going to start a feud with Pauly dangerously in the dangerous alliance stable, specifically Rick rude, we've talked about these series of matches a lot in our archives, grilling JR dot com. Particularly the war games and wrestle war 92 showings, but how about that Iron Man match? It was only 30 minutes, but beach blast 92, I mean, this is an era where we're not really trying things like Iron Man matches on pay per view, but if you're gonna have two guys do it, it's probably no two better conditioned athletes. She could have picked in this area now. Yeah, probably so, yeah. Both of them are very talented. Yeah. And I think that's where that kind of salvaged steamboats passionate again. It pushed the right button, getting in there with rude. I was rude was such a great heel. An athletic wrestling heel that could kick ass and the guys respected his toughness is tenacity and so forth. So I don't know. I thought that was a good booking quite frankly. And again, steamboat hoping again that he's still a top guy and that rude communist nerves and not be paranoid because he knew steamboat wasn't going to screw him. He was going to go out there and they were going to have an unselfish, great performance. And I thought they accomplished that. Well, they definitely did that. And we're going to close out 92 with steamboat having a very short television title run. Defeating Steve Austin at clash of the champions 20, and then he and Shane Douglas are paired up and when the unified tag titles, which are both the NWA and the WCW tag titles, at the next clash in Macon, Georgia, on November 18th, and they're going to lose those on March 3rd, 1993, right about when you're finishing up with WCW, they drop them to the Hollywood blonds, stunning Steve Austin and Brian Pillman, and later steamboat would feed with Paul orndorff and lord Steven regal over the TV title and get one last shot at the title and a series of matches against Ric Flair. They had another match, not nearly discussed as much as that 89 trilogy, but spring stampede 94 was yet another example of what these guys could do, maybe a little older, maybe not as bright a light, but what a match, man. They were just the perfect pair, no? Yeah, I wasn't there then. I left. This short time before that. Yeah. Yeah, what the hell are you? Are we supposed to be surprised? They had another great match? No. I don't think so. His final match is in WCW would save him defeat Steve Austin for the U.S. title at the clash of the champions in August, but unfortunately he has to forfeit the title due to a back injury. And then shortly afterwards, he's fired by FedEx. Thanks to our Eric Bischoff, he's still out when he's injured. And against this news, and that's it. He's going to retire from wrestling and stay away for several years. Kind of a sad ending, you know, this is a guy who had done it all. Former U.S. champ and TV champ and tag champ and Intercontinental Champion world champ and then and I'll end with a FedEx man. Yeah, I think not specifically referring to Eric's Eric's FedEx. But I thought at the end of the day, steamboat deserved better on his exit from our business. Yes. I thought he had paid enough dues, he had contributed to mightily, so I thought that he probably deserved a little bit better treatment on his way out. I mean, out out, then he got. I'm not blaming Eric for that. Just the way the lay of the land was, but all of a sudden it was inadvertently perhaps, but steamboat became the forgotten guy. Hey, all you remember

It doesn't matter. Because even if i sent that person invitation i'd get no reply all right guys. Let's move right along. Shall we a dip anywhere. You wanna say about paul orndorff. I know you have his l. Jan which means a lot to it. Does i gotta tell you. I was never a huge mr wonderful like personal mark. But i did love his feud with rick. Rude the the body off who had the better body feud I thought that was a lot of fun. and You know. I always respected the fact that he could put on a great match and he's a great guy. Yeah and apparently for all intents and purposes was a great guy and so r i to another another one you know another another great icon who Is an elastic is kind. I mean there's not many left from that generation who are still sort of able bodied and he was and he argued. He always seemed he. He wasn't till about five years ago. I remember seeing a few interviews with him And he got he got old fast. He got old fast. Had dementia and You know it's like There's not that many great ones left from that era Unfortunately who are still out there and doing interviews and you are still visible. So you know mr wonderful and also i. He reached you forget because wrestling was so big. At that time it was exploding. So much you forget how much of a sort of a household name even mr wonderful was. It was a big household name. He's he is you know i'm not going to overstate it. Maybe i will in this. When i'm about to say but in my opinion when you ask your grandfather or your father depending on how old you are like you know. Who did you watch. He he gets in there. It's bruno it's you know hogan and you know i i feel like he's in the conversation he's in the grandfather father number did i would say it's he's further down they'd have to have a little more interest you know. The father had to have watched wrestling a railway right but if less than less than grandfather father i think like a certain age group does like maybe like fifty five like forty to fifty five if you're forty to fifty five and you watched wrestling as a kid like when i when i let me put it this way. What i walked into work the next day ebro was like mr wonderful the piledriver. He and ebro only covered. Hebron new this we and ebro someone who just watched as a little kid you know but he was in that group of people you would definitely remember. But he's andre back lind. He's not no he's on hundred. No andre but i'm saying he's in the conversation. If you watch at that time like you someone like you. I mean he was. He was an on top heel for a long time he was he was he was one of the main heels for those are the guys. I'm naming the top guy. I mean dude it was it was at wrestlemania in wrestlemainia one. He's like you know one of the talk villains so it's a lot he's arguably it's it piper and orton dwarf. It's the three of them. But they're all they're all they're all there at the top oriented little step down from piper nor dwarf Ordinance years before anyway. Whatever it's a. It's a horrible loss.

But it seems to be some form of dementia. Probably that he got from, you know, too many bouncing the heads off of the the apron. Concussions will do that to you. He was one of the great villains of the eighties wrestling world when, when wrestling was in its heyday with Hawk Hogan and, uh, Andre the giant. He was in the first WrestleMania. Mr. Wonderful was Oh, that's a legendary thing to be in bed. He was he tagged up with rowdy Roddy took take on Hulk Hogan and Mr T.

Hall of Fame because that's where he played football. He was a star running back and was drafted by the ST I'm sorry. Do you mean the New Orleans saying? That's them back in 1973? When he came out of college? He was picked by the Saints to come and play for, Um, and then he didn't Because he couldn't pass the physical. I don't know what kind of physicals they were given back in the seventies, but this guy became a, uh, Star rest. He couldn't pass the physical for the Saints. And they passed on him. And then the Kansas City Chiefs took a run at him that he couldn't make that team either. May I offer he turned to wrestling? May I offer a theory? If you're physically fit person who played college football, right? But then the NFL says you don't pass the physical, so you end up in pro wrestling. Is it possible? What they really mean is he didn't pass a drug test could be because, you know, Yeah, dude was ripped right? Clearly not not like a puny man by any means, because I am pro wrestling. I don't think they test for steroid use. Probably not in the seventies. It might even be encouraged.

You see that they arrested some Bunch of dirtbags who apparently were going to shoot up the place from a balcony and a hotel overlooking Coors Field. Least that's the accusation by police. And they got him. Thank goodness. This is going to be an unusual All Star game because controversial went into Politics in baseball win. The game, originally scheduled for Atlanta was moved over the voting bill that was passed by the Georgia Legislature and signed into law by the governor. What are we expecting tonight? Well, we have protests outside up. Michael Bowers, our national correspondent. Good morning, Michael. That's a good question. Jimmy. We didn't see it. Last night at the home Run Derby. We did see new commercials that were being run new political attack ad, hoping to remind viewers that hey, that game that was supposed to be held in Georgia is now being held in Colorado. But let's not forget it was supposed to be held in Georgia in Atlanta, Georgia, and until the voting rights thing had happened, and then pressure coming. From the Liberal Democrats were really pushing companies like Coca Cola and Delta and Major League Baseball to do something. It wasn't until that point that you had Major league baseball make the decision to leave the game from Atlanta and take it all the way over to Denver so that they could have what appeared to be at least this point in time, the pressure taken off it. That's the message largely coming from the commercial that aired last night. Although I don't really I I did watch the entirety the home run Derby. I don't remember seeing the commercials. So either I didn't See it or it wasn't memorable enough to recall. But there's going to be another one that runs tonight during the All Star game that highlights that Major league Baseball is a victim here, as is the state of Georgia, and that the economic impact of the move was at the foot of the Yeah, at the foot of the radical left woke crowd. That's what they're pushing. And I think to me this is largely a national commercial for midterm elections. This is A specific target on Georgia Senator Raphael Warnock, who we know No. One back in January, the spot that had been once a seat filled by former senator Johnny Isakson. And so Warnock is going to face re election here in November. 2022. This looks like the big push at least the starting point for a big push from the Senate Republicans campaign to take back both of those Georgia seats. And again, saying that this is somehow major league baseball. I mean, if you remember back to April when want Rob man for the commissioner said he sat down and talked with players. He talked with the union. He talked with the other group. The Players Alliance, I think is what it was called, which is an organization of black players formed after the death of George Floyd that he had all these discussions before making a decision. That Major League Baseball fundamentally supports voting rights and all Americans for all Americans and opposes restrictions at the ballot box. That didn't sound like a victimization to me a major league baseball, But that's certainly the picture that's being painted here. Well, Even the Democratic politicians who originally back this stopped and said, Oops, wait a minute. We just took a lot of money out of the pockets of people have to vote for us. Mhm. I mean, just think about those businesses that surround the field in Atlanta. I mean, just think how much money they lost. Because of this $100 billion, according to what the commercial says $100 million because of the All Star Game move was ripped away from the city of Atlanta. Right. And so I don't know if Atlanta was a victim. I mean, they've got They could have put pressure on their politicians to say Stop it. Shut up! This is ridiculous. What are you doing? I mean, things are gonna happen all over the country you might not agree with, but that doesn't mean you're going to pull money away from your citizens that are holding the boat. I mean, it's it's It was absurd. And now some of those politicians are trying to say Oh, no, it wasn't us. We didn't do this. And you know what? Who else is in trouble with this, too? Is Fox news? Fox News pounded on this and pound on this and pounded on this, I guess who has the game? Fuck exactly. So it's both. You know. Stacey Abrams. Senator Warnock. Fox News. All of them have got to sit there and realize you know what? Maybe Each and every state in each and every vote. We can't take a position like this because we got to remember the people who are voting for us are the ones who are going to benefit from it. If we do it again, we're just stupid and well. Just a thought. But but you know Stacey Abrams? Oh, I want to move. Yeah, you did. Senator Warnock. I didn't want it to. Yes, you did. And did it do any good? No, no whatsoever. The whole thing is absurd. Michael, Thanks so much for your time. I can't wait to not watch this baseball game. Thanks, Jimmy. Stay safe. Take care of see it. It's 6. 46 minutes.

One of the very first things he did after taking control the company was one. Leave the nwa which the w. wwf had rejoined in one thousand nine hundred ninety one and change the name of the company to the world wrestling federation or wwf. Vince began syndicating tv programming nationwide which angered many of the regional promotions while there was nothing illegal about it. There had been an understanding for decades. That this just wasn't supposed to be done. Use the revenue from this larger television audience to begin poaching all of the top talent from the various regional promotions in one thousand nine hundred four. He hired a wrestler named hulk hogan who was the top wrestler for the awa and who would also appeared in the movie rocky three. He then hired hogan's biggest rival rowdy roddy piper as well as other wrestlers who became some of the biggest names in the eighties wrestling boom. These included the iron sheik. Jesse ventura jimmy. Snuka nikolai volkov junkyard. Dog paul orndorff greg. Valentine and ricky. Steamboat mcnabb himself explained the strategy an interview.

Were allowed. There were maybe thirty these tiny kingdoms in the us. And if i hadn't bought out my dad there would still be thirty of them. Fragmented and struggling. I of course had no allegiance to those little lords unquote. Wwf also began a nationwide touring schedule with far larger more expensive stage production than any other promotion which just rubbed salt into the wounds of the other regional promotions. The wwf was making a lot more money than any other wrestling company and had a much larger audience. But they were also burning through a lot of cash in many markets. Their presence was resented because they had caused several regional promotions to go to business. The wwf at this point was teetering on the brink of bankruptcy. The thing that would make or break. The business was at giant promotion that would be sold on closed-circuit. The name of the show was dubbed by the ring announcer howard painful. It was called wrestlemainia. There had been other big super shows before however they were just wrestling shows. Wrestlemainia was to be a mix of wrestling in pop culture. The wwf had been programming on mtv.
