Why Is There Such a Fuss Over the LIV Tour?

"Like, what's the problem with there being two tours? There was already two tours. There was the European tour of the PGA Tour. There's already two tours. Like, you didn't care if Patrick Reed went and played the European tour for 6 weeks a year. That's what he was going to do. Well, guess what? He's just going to do that. It's just going to be 6 weeks. It's just going to be renamed called the live tour. Who cares? You know, I don't think the player is really care. Where these guys play in between the majors. Do you? No. I mean, well, I think they care a little bit from some of the statements regarding, you know, what guys said and where they're going. However, at the end of the day, does it not make it easier that some of the competition is leaving? You bet. I mean, like, you know, if we were like boys and I told you I was going to do something and then I didn't do it. You'd be like pissed and they'd be like, well, probably could beat this guy every time I play against him anyway. However, now I don't have to worry about it at all. See you later, he's gone. Like the couple tournaments he'd sting me a year. He's out of there and I don't even have to worry about it. In some dude that's barely going to get in the field because of it. So that part, that part makes sense, but dude, I've heard all sorts of things. I don't know. And in his U.S. open week, but the European tour has been very silent during this whole deal, right? Like, I mean, noticeably silence. And without a doubt, they have ties to, you know, they had a tournament. They had a tournament with that was sponsored by, you know, the folks that are sponsoring the lives were and things like that. So they're in a different position than the PGA Tour. What I mean, if these guys all become European tour members, somehow like all of a sudden they're back in the world rankings, they're back in all these other tournaments. And can the PGA Tour suspend someone from a WGC? I don't think they can, because it's like co sanctioned by all the other tourists. You know what I mean? And I don't know. I can't say I'm not an attorney. I'm not an accountant. I'm not, I can't give you tax advice. But I would guess that if someone got world ranking points and qualified for a WGC, and it's not a PGA Tour event, it's a world, whatever golf championship. They'd be able to play.

Biden's Desperate Attempt to Alleviate Gas Prices by Cutting Gas Tax

Biden's Desperate Attempt to Alleviate Gas Prices by Cutting Gas Tax

"The Biden administration is feeling the sting of public reaction to gas prices. Now, for a long time, they were almost contemptuous about this. Biden was like, well, I'm not going to have fossil fuels. I'm not going to allow drilling. And in some ways, to be honest, a guy did say beforehand before he was elected that he was going to do these things. Block new oil leases. He was going to get rid of the pipeline, which he did. So in some ways, you know, people who voted for Biden are getting what they paid for. They're getting what they voted for. Hard to feel sorry for them to that degree. It's not exactly that Biden was in secret about what he intended to do. He did say he was going to do these things and he didn't do them. But now that gas prices have gone to four 50, $5 6, $7, and they could go higher, Biden is suddenly realized this is actually, in a sense, breaking the back of the Democratic Party, particularly when he put it together with the broader impact of inflation, not just the gas prices going up at gas prices, then contributing to other prices going up. And all of this being driven also by promiscuous government spending. And by the Federal Reserve just printing money. So you think that Biden's solution would be, well, all right, listen, you know, at least temporarily, let me open up the spigots in America. We've got a lot of oil in this country. We've got a lot of natural gas, lots of people willing to drill it. There's lots of incentives to do it because prices are high. So there are all kinds of entrepreneurs who aren't even fully employed or diploid who would be happy to jump into it because there's a lot of profit to be made. So I use the market. No. You can count on them not to do that. So Biden is planning to do two things. The first is they're considering temporarily shelving the federal gas tax. So when you buy gas, you pay the price at the pump, that's the market price, if you will, of gas, of oil. But on top of that, there is a an increment that is the federal tax. So apparently Biden thinks that if we do a what they call a federal gas tax holiday, it will temporarily bring down prices. Obviously that's going to be temporary. You know, the government, Wednesday, get that grubby pause on your money. They're not going to want to give it up for

Brave Republicans Confront DOJ About Whitmer 'Entrapment'

"A handful of Intrepid Republicans, and it's, it shouldn't be a handful. It should be the Republicans in a unified political phalanx. But no, it takes the brave ones to go out front. And here I'm talking about, I'm gonna name them. It's led by Marjorie Taylor Greene, but you've got Scott Perry, Dan bishop, Andrew Clyde, Andy Biggs, bob good, Mary Miller, Paul gosar, Andy Harris, Louie gohmert, Thomas massie Matt Gaetz, well, what are they doing? In the aftermath of the exoneration of two key defendants in the Whitmer kidnapping trial, the pressing attorney general Garland for some specific answers. Now, trying to get answers out of Garland is not an easy business. This is like going to the consigliere of Don Corleone and saying, hey, listen, we're we want to find out more about the mafia. You're actually talking to the mafia. But nevertheless, this needs to be done. And so this is a stinging letter and a demand. Of Merrick Garland copied a Christopher wray, and the questions themselves are telling, let me just read a couple of them. Who within the DoJ and the FBI knew about or was involved in the plot to kidnap governor Whitmer, tell us. Remember, this is a letter being sent by the legislators to the executive branch, which is accountable to the legislative branch. Number two, to what extent would the DoJ and the FBI motivated by the 2020 presidential election to paint political opponents as domestic terrorists specifically Vis-à-vis the plot to kidnap governor Whitmer and the events of the U.S. capitol on January 6th, 2021. In other words, this is not just at the FBI staging orchestrating infiltrating and moving along a plot. This is the FBI timing those events to coincide with an election. So the issue here being raised is the election interference, very important issue because these revelations came to light in early October of 2020.

Defender has to try and stop it. Unfortunately, it's China again, gets it wrong, and it's in the back of the net. Into the second half we go then, okay, lane wants to know about.

"League place. Take a look at that. United have played 30 games around 51 points. Arsenal four points ahead of them and they have two games in hand as well. Spurs meanwhile, sending 5th then or out of the race either. Don't when we've talked about arsenal's possibility of filling in the Champions League, you bring up the points where you know those games in hand are difficult. You know, you can't guarantee they're going to pick up some points. That is almost irrelevant now, isn't it? Given the way that united are dropping points. To a degree, the one thing I'm a little bit of afraid of, the nail on my hat on arsenal, is there a way fixtures done and they are really, really tough away fixtures. So they're not there yet, but every time a weekend comes by and they see bad united dropping points or west and we're dropping points or dropping points. Of course it helps. You've got those games in hand. We have still got a winner. But all of a sudden now they've got to think the four point cushion. I think to man united the game or two in hand. So they're certainly in the box seat. And got passed on Monday, Stevie. I'm still should be confident at this stage. They've gotten themselves from bottom of the league and fourth position, and they haven't done it by being lucky. They've done it through a process, defending well, passing the ball well and managing to score some goals at the right time. Right. They should be confident because if they look over the shoulder, they'll see teams like Tottenham, who you're not sure what you get. Sure. And man united who seem like the, again, you don't know what you're getting. So these should be confident going into any game, whether it's crystal policy where anybody else.

"CEO is donating $5 million to the hate group Human Rights Watch and Human Rights Campaign or whatever they're called, they're doing walkouts, they're demanding gay fairytales. Maybe the head of Disney should take a little bit of a step back and know what exactly is going on in his own company. The post millennial dot com Disney employees plural busted in child trafficking sting just days after corporation opposed anti grooming law. Quote, the sheriff of Pope county held a press conference on Wednesday, talking about the culmination of a massive sting operation which led to a 108 arrests being made, including four Disney employees. The so called operation march sadness too was a multi agency effort centered around Florida's Polk county, which lies around southwest of the Orlando urban area and is a highly touristic area. Also included a retired judge from Illinois, a few restaurant managers, a man who works at fun spot in several who work at Disney. One of the people just happened to be a lifeguard at the Polynesian resort for Disney. The sheriff said quote, you think there's a few children around there, that's right. I didn't stutter. He was a lifeguard at the Polynesian resort and he was bragging about that. Jackson is accused of sending explicit photos to someone he thought was 14 years old. So why is Florida? I'm not Florida. Why is Disney opposing the praying and the recruitment and the attacking of new people that are young while also their own employees are engaging that kind of behavior? It's really bizarre, actually.

"You know, nothing. Let's get to take care of our business. And but I will say, you know, and I'm personally sorry for it, I guess. At least they had a plan, Conrad. That's right. They actually had a destination. They had goals. Anywhere they're going to go with this thing. So, but there's so many things that could go wrong. I wouldn't want to take that time to let that happen. So I'm with you on that deal. I'll beat him earlier. So staying in Abbey are going to team up at starrcade to defeat Bobby Eaton and Bron pillman to advance to the battle royal, which is covered that sting eventually defeats Liga to earn a title shot and now it's official staying is getting another title shot. Super brawl two and Tony schiavone and I just covered that yesterday here on our ad free shows dot com network. So check out Tony schiavone's podcast anytime you'd like what happened when is the name of it, but we literally just did a watch along. For when staying wins the world title, the second time, this time from Lex Luger at super brawl two, but that's 1992 and a sting story for another day. But when you take a look at sting's 1990, it was such a troubled start, it felt like, man, this is the big year, and then bam. He gets the big ACL tear or the atone meniscus, whatever the patella injury was. He's out. He needs knee surgery. Right. It comes back early. He makes it work. He's now going to be the man. Dethroning sting or dethroning flair. We don't really have any real plans. Only Anderson just pulls the whole black scorpion out of his ass, and we try it and it worked until it didn't. But then 1991, he spends the entire year really getting geared back up to be the man again. And sometimes that's a great matches, man. Sting has a great match of Conrad in that era. We're divvy up for matching the singles in four stars, 5 stars, that type of thing. Our thoughts staying in the ring at a really strong year. And in different environments with different opponents, he kept delivering, that was received positively by probably the best known pro Russian critic in the business that Dave Meltzer. That and I think all those things that we read, Meltzer was pleasantly surprised. Yeah. So I think the expectations that sting was a great worker weren't as fully established yet, but he did a lot for himself in a positive way, you know, to have those great matches that he was having was pretty amazing. He came into his own. I mentioned earlier. Why would he not go do the autographs at St. Louis? Because he's being worked. Here's your champ. Here they are. And then you go to Greensboro. That's the other show of greensburg, the whole world could know that we went from doing 20,000 people that building at one time. For big shows, the 400. There's your champ for you. It's just a it gave more fodder and more fuel to the fire of uncertainty and discontent and second guessing. Talk to me a little bit about the mentality of a professional wrestler, you know, we've often heard from like an MMA guy or a boxing guy. Hey, you learn more from a loss than you do a win, sort of thing. Do you think staying matured more and learned more and became a better long-term player based on 1990 or 1991? Well, I think 1990 had a ton of step back and look at some things. Steve Gordon is smart guy. But the pro wrestling business has so many different nuances that sometimes they're not just automatically absorbed, you get experienced them, you've got to understand them. And you get to have people around you that can help you with that. Those philosophies and things of that nature, so I think the time that he was off with injury and in between runs, I always say, what's where you got to put a lot of thoughts together? And you can tell when he's being worked and what he wasn't. He was that night here again as I said earlier that was such a positive influence in locker room and a good natured human being that those days were gone. I got to have a better reason. I got to know more about it. I got more knowledge about it. And by the way, what if we do this? So, you know, you know, we've mentioned earlier today that this Sunday Night stings that are matched on a pay per view. And it's going to be a full house there in Orlando. A long way from that 400 day Greensboro a long way. Yeah, man. But he learned over the years in that match on Sunday, and again, like all the matches. I purposely run from any inside information that I don't need to. I need to react. And not analyze, not precondition myself. You'll see how he uses his abilities. What does he 62 or three? Yeah. Early 60s, yeah. And whatever he does will be exactly what he needs to do for a 60 year old guy. He's just got it down now. He may be more, he may be more actually contrary to more effective in some ways. From the emotional standpoint, than he was when he was younger. Because people, he's not over. He's not on TV every week anymore. Tony Cox booked an orange Kevin special. And there's for you money, yes. And people now, you know, I just came back to me here as a few weeks ago. Some people,.

"There's a focus of knowing that Luger's contract is coming up. And he's the champion. So maybe we need somebody to help get sting. Back ready to be the flag bear here. So maybe he needs one opponent and then go right to Luger. Is that that sort of you're thinking? I mean, at this point you knew probably internally. Hey, we're not getting all of our best out of Luger. He's going to probably go check out some greener pastures. But we know stings just resigned. He's here, we got to find a way to get staying ready to be that guy again, right? Yeah. And, you know, that we had an abundance of great heels. To do that with. But you're right, staying out to be rug. Once again, new shine, new coat of paint, new presentation, new face paint, whatever the hell it was. New new new. It's the same guy. It's been repackaged. And the key to that completed refacing project is he's got somebody who's going to work with until he eats Luger for the title that we want to see. So the second question, the biggest question is, who the hell is that? Because we don't really have anybody. We so 400 tickets are Greensboro. You can make it do the math on that, do a big boy. Yeah, we have some more tickets for that for our live show. So we know what's next. It's ravishing Rick rude. He's the answer. Staying as attacked at the clash and put in peril for his U.S. title match against Rick rude and sting is going to hobble back from the hospital and then we have the match, we just covered this last year, one of the better pieces of business that ever happened in 1991 was this story, and got three stars. It's a short match. Staying to get the U.S. title, and I know what you're thinking. Well, hang on now, if Luger's leaving, why would you have sting B? Well, sting's got the U.S. title, so we need that belt. We need the secondary belt off of him, so he's ready for the big belt. Right. And it's that stuff returns. It's definitely rude was able to beat the U.S. title, who's to say he's not able to be staying for the world title. Ding, ding, ding. Pretty cool idea here where rude and dangerously are in the ring, ready to be awarded for the match by forfeit. But staying as hijacked and ambulance from parts unknown medical center back to the Savannah civics center just in the Nick of time and Meltzer will say it was predictable and almost too hokey, but it's the best job they've done and getting sting over as a baby face. It's the horseman turned on him in early 90. He says after all that work and giving sting and excuse to lose between the pre match attack and constant working on the knee, they should have done a stronger finish, but it was very intense for such a short match. So either way, rude is our champ, our U.S. champ, but now sting's got a fresh opponent and a real opponent. Sting rude, maybe could have been drawn out a little more. Maybe could have been a little more money. I mean, rude had just done great business with warrior back in 90. Why not do the same with staying here in 91? Oh great, yeah. And remove is a great heel. I think they were worried that sting was going to flatten out or whatever. Rude would never let that happen. But there were a lot more miles, a lot more tread and a tires were staying in rude than we saw. But that just shows you how bad were rude was. Undervalued guy. He was the go to guy immediately. You know, to get all these title changes, the U.S. title and all this stuff that set up because it didn't take the village India could figure out that lex is not going to stick around. Right. You know, this has already made us play, he already got flair, right? Yep. And taking a Luger would kill us. And a lot of people's mind. Sting was not going to be available because it really needed another long-term deal for more money. So, you know, I'm with you on that deal. I think, you know, rude was a savior in a lot of ways. And I would have been happy to, I love calling those matches. Because here's the thing, we've talked to this who calls the match. In the ring, the heel. And that took a lot of pressure off staying. He didn't have to think of every spot to do. He could supplement the spots, he could augment the spots, he could contribute to the spots, but the guy that was leading the way was the heel and the heel was a good ring general. Name recruit. And man, he's going to be primed for a big year or so it seems because now they're getting ready for battle bowl, starrcade 91, but they're already advertising super brawl. What lex versus sting for the title. In hindsight, I think we all agree, battle bowl was amiss. Should they have just done sting and Luger at starrcade instead? Probably hindsight. Yeah. What are you waiting on? You know, are you doing are you doing anything specific? That you need that time to build more anticipation and hopefully draw a bigger gate, some more paper use. Maybe. You can make an argument for that. But I'm like you. I'm not going to chance any injuries. Late, the last minute bullshit..

So gimmicky. But, you know, there was a time there. And we've talked about this because I was in a position to find no more of a lot of guys. On this topic, is that the insatiable quest to be as like WWE as they could be, this just solidifies that whole premise. You know, it was something that you're going to do a match in this nature with a crazy ass title or the loser gets the electrocuted. Electrocuted. I think that means death. It's like the absurdity of having a Texas death match. Ain't nobody died, no Texas death matches. Not yet. And hopefully they won't, but I don't know, looking at some of these names in this thing, you know, cashmere. Oh yeah, let's talk about him. It feels like that's a creative idea that they want to try. Let's give this guy the rub. Meltzer would say the TV main event sarcasm Abdullah take on sting and eating, and this match was completely screwed up because here in our eating was supposed to get pinned and laid out. And then the heels would double on sting, and calves would make the save. That's what was supposed to happen. But instead, kasma came out before the match was over, and started a run in until Nick Patrick stopped him in the whole gig was blown. And they're going to have to redo this match and kazmaier squash match because fans were chanting steroids at him. And they're going to re tape it on October 8th in Montgomery. The reason for this big push for kasma area is, and this isn't made up. Luger and kasmar are going to headline shows in early November, including the card of the forum in Los Angeles, and probably the show in San Jose as well. So I guess the idea is, let's use some of sting's popularity to help get Bill ready. Clearly, bill is not ready, but it feels like nobody should ever be so desperate for their next star. Having things like experience or in ring ability, that shouldn't get in the way. Look at this big jacked up strongman. People are going to love him. If we could just actually tell him how to do this. And a sad part about that story gone right, I don't disagree with anything he said. Is that Bill cashmere is a gas that was a nice guy. And what in his fault? No. That's what they asked of him. I think he's an Alabama guy. He is indeed great guy. I met him several times. Always to lie professional. You couldn't ask for a better representative of your company quite frankly. It's just that he got pushed to the action way too soon. He wasn't, he needed to be, he needed to be booked in an obscure way for a year or so. They need to wrestle, you know, three or four days a week. And I don't know that they don't want to make that kind of commitment. He might have I always found him to be a joy to be around. And you could do the vignette, you could do with him and all the accolades that he'd earned. Over time, could have been a great story to tell. And then finally, when he debuted, boom, you got something. I know who he is, know why he's here. I know how strong he is. I know I beat you very simply. People with a bear hug, you know, people with a headlock. And he looked great. Like I said, he was not going to be late. He's going to be on time. He's going to be prepared. And he's not going to embarrass you outside of ring and do anything stupid. But he just wasn't ready, man. It's just that the same common denominator that we've talked about time and time again. No patience. And boom. There you go. It's just bad management. You needed somebody in there that could say, okay, we're not doing any of these things anymore. This is out. That's out. The DQ's, all this other shit. Unless it's the right way of doing it, the right time. So then you do it when it meant something, not just because it's an easy way to create a lazy fucking finish. Meltzer would write that in this area, sting is going to be resigning for a three year deal. Sting signed to three year contract that takes him through February of 95, reportedly for 500 grand for the first year, 600 grand for the second year, and 700 grand for the third year, that's big money in wrestling in this era. Both Scott hall and diesel, Kevin Nash would refer to their contracts on their perceived future value and what the type of money they're trying to make. Their goals and aspirations were quote unquote, staying money. And this is what they're talking about. Jim in this era, this is an awful thing to say, but I think it is factual. They've got a few months without flair now, and they see fans are not happy businesses down, staying had a ton of leverage here in this deal. Did he not? They couldn't afford to have sting leave too. No, no. And you don't want Rick left. I'm not so sure how far apart, if any. Rick was compensation wise with sting and legs. You know, I don't know the right answer, but I researched that one time. I know I saw numbers. Legitimate numbers. And their monies are close, so that could not have been the only reason because the Rick left because Vince is not going to guarantee a weekly salary. In that era, you knew that right. Yeah. So WCW did..

"He had star appeal. Superstar appeal. And how can we best monetize that? Let's talk about Nikita for a minute. Do you think at this point, I mean, I don't mean to say the bloom is off the rose, but is it sort of done? He's going to stick around. I think he wrestles his last match in November of 92. But you go back to 85, 86. That was really the height. But here by 91, had the business just changed too much. Did he not evolve? I don't know whose fault it was. I guess I'm trying to get to is, is this one of the last meaningful things that we think we're going to get out in a key to? Probably. Yeah. And he may, and I don't know this to be this is a casual observation but it was there. I think maybe he didn't have the, I don't know. That's a vinegar that he once had. It seemed like he wasn't as intense as he once was. He was doing and he didn't change his game plan or strategy. Game planning. And you got evolved. You got to change a little bit. And he didn't seem to do that. It was like, well, that's the key thing again. You know, it's like the old days of our Anderson wrestling every Saturday on TV is. You know what's going to happen? So hey, look, I can watch our Anderson all day. Every day. Both of you have hit, but I think Nikita, maybe he lost his edge. Maybe just a flame wasn't burning his brightly as it once was. So later on that night, there's a pretty cool angle. Meltzer would write. Next was an angle where the winner of a fictitious thing lookalike contest, and this is where the head Kevin Sullivan's son Ben, with his face painted exactly like stain, came out, and of course they bring sting out to meet him, and then Nikita attacks sting during the segment with a chain and glared like he's going to attack Ben. Ben's mom, who is his mom in real life, hopped the guardrail to quote unquote protect her son. While Doug dillinger stepped in front of Nikita, and then Ben hovered over a fallen sting, it was a great angle. Kids and moms, man. That's money and wrestling almost every time, is it not? Yeah, it seems to me, you know, a lot of credit for that goes to Kevin Sullivan. Because I'm sure Kevin produced it, his son was involved in it. The wife was involved in it, and you know, Sully was really good at coming up with booking for heels. I really had a feel for it, you know? So that was one of the nicer things we did then. It was a great angle. As you said, I agree with you. And I agree with Meltzer. It was a great angle. And that helped Nikita Nikita needed more of that, Conrad, and even more nasty. You mean more nasty illustrations of your personality and who you are and we could do that on a regular basis. We would rebuild the star. And that's what we needed to do. We did the stars we had that were young enough to get it done. It needed to be rebuilt and reignited. And the other side of that, that conversation is a guys that were new, need to be given an opportunity. See if they get over. Maybe we get lucky. Struck lightning in a bottle or that cliche is. But the bottom line is that this is a Kevin Sullivan probably deserves a lot more credit to this for this angle than people realize. Isla boy was a natural, great versatility. Great segment. Great psych one. Yeah. Well, I remember one time Kevin couldn't find Ben. He came to TV. And he was missing for like our two. All in today's world, that would be a direct call to Chicago PD or, you know, SVU or somebody. But what had happened was the steiners are caught up with him. And they taped his body with adhesive tape from ankle to an eyes, he looked like a little mummy. And they were in a locker room, which had lockers. And that's where they found him. He looked like a little mummy, and he was a. He wanted to fight them both and done. It was just funny. He's a great kid. He's a grown man. I'm saying, now, obviously. I had heard from the year name, but he was a perfect little personality to do that. So we all know what's coming next. Ric Flair is going to leave WCW. You were there when all this happens. Clearly there's going to be a thousand meetings about this. Sting's name has to be at the center of every conversation about what do we do next, right? Yeah. Yeah. Well, there's so many all star. And as far as Rick was concerned, you think that was the first time that we heard was frustrated would like to leave, that was a normal course of business. That wasn't anything known a new topic to discuss. So but yeah, that's why I said before in this era, working at WCW wouldn't a lot of fun. Because it was the same worn out topics,.

"That's coinbase dot com forward slash JR. Well, I appreciate that. Let's keep the show on the track though. And talk about Nikita. Well, how do you think creative at the time? Whoever it may be, thought Nikita was the right opponent for sting. Well, it was a Booker. Well, I think this is still very much by committee at this point flair has officially quote unquote stepped down. It's the gym heard era. So I think we've got a couple of gems on there and some Kevin Sullivan's on there. I think we've got a whole host of folks. But I mean, listen, I get Nikita as a top heel act, but it's interesting to think about, we got to find something for him to do after flair. So we put him in the war game scenario. Then we put him in a babyface tag scenario. He goes abroad and kind of works as a heel against muda, but now here, you know, after the tag, rendezvous, I guess now there's no denying. Sting's firmly a baby face because Nikita is nothing but a big nasty heel. I get it. I think the key to got a lot of stretch out, you know, the key to the hell with Java, salvaging JCP after magnitude wreck. Yeah, I guess to your point, timeline wise, right after Royal Rumble 91, dusty comes back. So this is definitely got dusty's fingerprints on it. Does she loved him? And look, Scott's a great guy. He's a real Christian guy, does a lot of speaking now. Things of that nature. He's a really evolved to a wonderful man. He looks so deadly and so dangerous. He's pretty damned athletic for a guy that's jacked up as he was. But what the role that he played in becoming dusty's partner is that they've come to the superpowers and all this stuff and stepping in for Magnum was nothing short of extraordinary. While Steve will accepted him as a viable substitute, was Nikita the worker that Magnum was? No. But he was perceived as a major star in his look and his intensity had a lot to do with that. So I don't know what the exact reason to answer your question directly, but I know that he had some equity built up for the procession was this guy as a superstar. No doubt about it. He was over like rover and dusty loved him. Clash of the champions shifting goes down in Nashville, at sting versus Nikita. They're gonna go 9 minutes and 32 seconds and sting gets the win with a schoolboy. Meltzer says this was the only match on the entire show that had adequate time to get over. What it was supposed to, but unfortunately, while I had adequate time, it wasn't a good match. Can't complain, however, because since the key to doing a clean job, they wanted the entire match to be him on the offense, and they needed time to get that point across. Of course, Nikita is so limited that it exposed him as a worker, the finished sauce thing to finally do an offensive move by reversing a tombstone, but he missed a stinger splash into the corner, pull off then went for the sickle end of the corner, but sting moved, got behind him and school bold and school boarding for the pin, the finish was well done, but the match was lackluster. Star and a half is what he gave it. I think that's a fair assessment. Maybe it accomplished what we wanted. We wanted to get sting of it. But probably not the match we were hoping for. Right, yeah. Well, it is exposed with the obvious. You know, like I said, Nikita had to be booked in a certain way. Yes. We're waiting the key to got over was eating people alive. Right. And Maul their asses beating the shit out of them. And people bought into that deal. They didn't, there's where you find out if the heel is being booed and people don't like him. And all of a sudden, there's a different feel in the car out in the audience. It means he's elevated to star status. And the key to that one time, it has been elevated to star status, because again, the magnet situation, such an emotional deal, and the promos at dusty and the keto did regarding Magnum were phenomenal. So the Nikita was never a great quote unquote worker. Dusty would sell and the key to get the comeback. That was the formula. Right. And if that formula is working, what is the motivation to change it? For the sake of change. That's another fallacy in wrestling booking. Booker's think that they are compelled to change things when what they're doing. They may not be drawing big money right now, but you're on the right track. Right. And oftentimes, when you're on the right track, even you decide, well, I got to change the direction. Why? Well, it's just time for a change. Based on what? Your goddamn forensic accounting of the gates and the profit and loss statement, you know, or whatever. I don't get that. So, but Nikita could have been managed a little bit differently. There's no doubt about that. But I don't disagree with.

"Well, let's talk about the super brawl match. I absolutely love the Spanish as a kid. They did a great package building towards this too. Meltzer would write those a new video got helping out with it. The result is, after sting was involved in a 5 star match for the first pay per view of 91, here's four and a half stars, so critically well received, and only goes 11 minutes and 8 seconds, but my goodness, what a match. I'm answer would say they showed the video before the match began. I was really surprised about a lot of things in the match. First, of course, it's just how good it really turned out to be. But also the amount of heat generated in a battle of baby faces. The heat was super far and away the most on the show and considering this was a total Japanese style match. It's a something about how the crowds are changing and what they really want. I inspected it to be like the warrior Steiner's match that starrcade had gone, trading good moves, but the crowd not popping big. But sting was the MVP of the show, and it was the best he's looks and is coming back from the knee injury. All four guys obviously put a lot into the match, both in the ring and also in putting it together. The steiners were chilled slightly more throughout the match, but it seemed like it didn't seem like anyone was booed. It opened with lex and Rick trading spots. He does the rundown, ultimately, is critical to finish. We know Nikita is going to get involved, but still, he says it was still a cheap non finish that took a lot of way from what was probably one of the best matches of the year four and a half stars. What'd you think? I didn't like to finish the cause. You weren't committed. I mean, you know, if you can't, if the Booker and the book of the agents or whomever Conrad can't come up with a finish that gets you a winner and establishes a loser in that contest, you got the wrong people booking. There was no reason for that, you know, I understood the logic of the key to dusty. Political shit there, I get it. And the key to was a big star. But he was dancing in the wrong dance. Dance floor was full. I don't understand why he needed to be in there and if you're going to give him a big push, they need to play start. So, you know, the only one I know how to watch it have booked it. If you wanted to get Nikita over, he goes to the ring and with all four of their asses. They feed, come back and he takes his power to sell out. You're making a star. He was making a stand out. I don't know that Nikita did anything. I don't remember what he did. So how viable was it? And I called the match. So I don't think we needed that. And it's a crutch Conrad. It's a crutch. It's a political crutch to keep more people happy. This way we can say, well, I didn't have to beat the standards. I didn't have to be stinging wax. So you look at that as a bad thing. They lost. So in your mind, if you're a former wrestler or an active wrestler, semi act of whatever, and you're the Booker, I can see that logic because you're thinking like one of the boys. You're not thinking what's best for the show and the storyline development of this contest. And I think that's what we're there a lot. And you got that a lot when you have bookers that were active wrestlers. They had a different mindset. They had a different list of priorities. There are boxes that they needed to check or different than an objective box. Or a guy like much Nick or somebody who's not going to wrestle. He's a businessman, Paul Bosch, businessman. This senior businessman. Cowboy have come back wrestling every now and then houses are down or something. But by and large, he was a businessman. And then you got away from that because all of a sudden, these owners were hiring guys to book. And one of the reasons they hired these guys to book was because I could use them on their cards. So you've got kind of zanny's working on top, a, B, Booker. And that's just a tough balance. Because the locker room in a subjective business that's theatrical in nature, they're not sure how it was trying to hand they're going to get. So anyway, I think that's always been a fallacy of our business. That's one of the good things about Tony Kahn is that I don't know if there's a Tony ever doing a wrestling skit. And he books things that he wants to see. And as long as he's still a bigger fantasy is, you know, we've made a big deal the other day about having either a count out or a dequeue or something. And I admire that we stood our ground, but why do we change? What do you have to have? Do we really believe in 2022 Conrad that a DQ will salvage the face of the guy losing? No. As silly, isn't it? Yes. That doesn't matter anymore..

"The majority of American wrestling fans were not overly familiar with. It motivated more time here. And like I said, here's another guy. Everything was just cut short. Luckily, it's like MJF promo, he did with the other night. About, you know, being a bully, all those things. It was a great problem, by the way, I thought. But I think that losing my train of thought, I think that. Mood and needed more time and if we had given him more time, but everything seemed to be rushed. Everything seemed to be rushed and I don't understand that. It's just a, it's like having a political election every 6 months is that every four years. In America. It's just everything stays in the state of flux. And dogs are chasing their tails endlessly. So let's talk about what thing is doing domestically on all the house shows that sting versus flair for the world title with elegant as the special guest referee. Horrible. Horrible. It really was horrible. I probably had WCW 'cause you stayed there in Atlanta. And he got lonesome. Be honest with you. George George did and so I spent more time with him in a lot of guys. He just come by the office of hanging out. He had to order to go. Yeah. And he like to flirt with the girls. And we had a pretty we had some nice looking ladies working in the office there. Or so and told. That one of the biggest mistakes of Booker can make is to take an untrained referee. A wrestler that's untrained as a referee and put him in a match. I get, you know, back in the old days, all those little posters know Jack dips, he was referee and, you know, Rocky Marciano was a referee. Well, they're there for one reason. They're right hand. So, but I just don't see it's a good way to screw the fucking match. It's put Ellie gate. You think elegante in his wildest dreams he had one clue. So I brick on the right side or I break on the left side. If the guy's left handed do I Google his opposite sides that aren't getting hit in the face with his left hand left elbow? Yeah. But they don't know that. When you count the shoulders, your head should be even with a guy that's getting pinned. So you can see both the shoulders that are down. And that's a lost art. But they don't know these things. And you work with a talented match, talented talents. They're expecting you to be at a certain place at a certain time. Yes. Screw the whole damn chemistry and timing up if you're not careful. So all that was that was good for a poster. And if you're going to be, if you're going to do it, Connie, you make two referees. You have a regular referee in the ring, and you have a second referee patrolling the outside. Like he's a bodyguard type deal. To put elegant ring for God's sake, are we that must have been late for a flight, meant to get home? So is this so sense? It's almost comical. I should mention on the heels of this whole mood of sting thing over in Tokyo when they come out of there. It's at least reported as if Sid Vicious is unhappy. And he's unhappy that he's been asked to put over sting and Luger. It felt like in this era Sid was almost never happy anyway. What do you remember with Sid Vicious perhaps? His lot in life and being unhappy with it and how much of that had anything to do with sting and Luger. Probably had everything to do with it. Yeah. And not as much about Sid about the Luger and staying as one might assume. And, you know, said, as he should, had a very high opinion of his own work. It was one of those guys for it was a Kent this. You know he was going to be really, really good. But when you're dealing with talent Conrad, it's imperative that the decision maker in the booking department and the talent have got to be on the same timeline. In other words, if I'm talking you're the town on the Booker, you know, you and I got to agree that you're 6 months away from this big win, you're going to get the champion or whatever. We've got to be on the same timeline and a lot of guys thought they're ready today. And why am I not getting what I want today? And maybe they're right, but the issue is, that's not your call. That's the officer's call. Their coach is called a plays. All right, Garza and I'll call to play. Coach is called a place. So I think it had more to do with Sid. And since desire to be the top guy, which is what everybody in the restaurant should want to be in your company, the top guy. They make the most money. They get the most media stretch. They get the most covers and all these things. So video games, action figures. When I finally get my action figure, Obama, maybe the only song that's the world gets an action figure posthumously. We've had an action figure in WWE. You just spent an AW one. Yeah. It is weird. It is weird that Cody had 32 of them and you didn't have any. Did he really? Not really. I joked when it was out that he was no longer with WWE ass or AWS my group chat. Hey, what variant of his tie so they're going to do next time with the next round of figures if he's not there. So maybe what they could do is they could take your head, put a little cowboy hat on it and put it on all those leftover Cody once they've got for the next round of figures. There you go. Super they are. Your problem solver. So I sting and lex are announced as taking on the steiners at the very first super brawl, and it feels surreal to me that this is such a different business than it is now, but I mean, we're fresh off of this guy being the world champion, and we're putting him immediately into a tax situation. And it's two baby face teams. As a kid, I absolutely loved it. As an adult, I don't know this is what I would have done. What did you think at the time of the Steiner's first thing in Luger? It was like beautiful one or two off or short run program. It had no star power in it to make me interested in watching.

"By the way, I'm happy to report. That Snoop Dogg is finally getting his feet held to the fire for this shit he pulled when he gave that Uber eats driver. Some guff for not delivering his food about four or 5 weeks ago and the guy didn't do it because snoop didn't respond in the 8 minute time limit all Uber eats drivers have to follow. If you stay in contact with them, the guy didn't like where he was driving, he said it's an unsafe neighborhood. He didn't want to wait anymore and snoop didn't get locked to the guy. So the Uber eats drivers give him his one name said. Give us other name. But he's now planning to finally lost it against snoop for sharing his personal information and a photo on Instagram to snoop's measly 70 million followers, which I found despicable. Not to mention he called him the N word and motherfucker from fucking Uber eats didn't bring my fucking food talking about he arrived. It's not a safe place, punk motherfucker. When my food at N word, y'all got my goddamn money, punk. It's bullshit. Just nasty behavior from a guy that just played the goddamn Super Bowl, had the whole country in the world watching.

"Worked if it was another sounds crazy? I want to talk to Jim Hurd for ad free shows dot com. He admitted that he had been trying to negotiate with Randy Savage. But that of worked, if he unmasked and oh my gosh, it's the macho man. Of course, absolutely. It's been phenomenal. But I don't know how close Randy was in leaving events. I know we know he eventually would, but Randy was doing a pretty good job, making some good money there during that run. And Vince loved him. And that's what Randy needed a lot, and you need a lot of love to be honest with you. He needed to read to feel like he was cared for immense something. He was very insecure. And I think that's what this offered Randy security I'm your guy. Look what we've done together so far. That group down there's crazy. And he could give about ten illustrations a week about how crazy we were. So Randy would have been a home run. Without a doubt. Interesting question here from Joe, Joe wants to know, do you think sting was the John Cena of his time? Oh, good question, Joe. Might have been a little bit. Might have been a little bit. Remember he was force fed. Anytime you found yourself in a position as a creator and you're force feeding something down another's throat, you have to be very, very careful. Because you did too hard and this is a baby face you're working with. People start spitting it back at you. So I could see that analogy being made and being pretty damn on target. Way to go, Joe. Well next week, we're going to be doing something pretty fun, but before we tell you about that, I want to go to the phone. So that's right the phones were actually letting people. Come on, the program and ask their question to Jim Ross right here. You do it over to ad freak shows dot com. And I think we've got a call right now. Let's take a listen. Hey JR, Brad Stanton, top guy here. About things 90 91 career where he feuded with the black scorpion for a lot of the time. What did you think of this? And how soon did you know that it was going to be Ric Flair? Was it always going to be Ric Flair? I've heard a lot of different things. So you've told us when you knew it was Ric Flair, but overall, in hindsight, was it worth a try, since it sold, not the pay per view, but it did Garner a ton of traffic television was. The biggest audience you guys have ever had, the biggest rating you ever had, that makes me think, okay, maybe it was worth a try. We just didn't have a plan for the end of this thing. It was definitely worth a try. There was something there. It was old school wrestling in reincarnated. The mass of the mysterious mass man from parts unknown. Or as we would say. So I should not be so Audrey. Yeah, it's worth a try, man. It was starting to work. But it wasn't. When you book a story if you're a screenwriter, you kind of got a pretty good idea of your characters are going to be. Right. And we didn't have that luxury, man. And now that luxury, but as sure as hell is worth a try. It just wasn't executed worth a shit. Well, we're going to try to do something fun next week. We're going to watch the Thursday raw from February of 1997. Of course, this is Thursday, raw Thursday. The very famous show where for whatever reason, Shawn Michaels lost his smile, will break all of that down next week. We'll talk about The Rock winning his first title. We'll talk about the go home build for the final four pay per view, just a week of chaos in the World Wrestling Federation, but I'll tell you what, if your life is a little chaotic, maybe it's time you just kick it old school, let me take it low and slow, of course I'm talking about JR's BBQ dot com. It's the place to be right now this time of year is it not you? Absolutely. Of course people are thinking. Oh, Jesus. I was going to talk about that goddamn barbecue sauce again. Yeah, here we go. Here we go, kids. A simple deal. It's a family business. Family recipes, we started and build it from scratch. I mean, from zero or bottom zero, we had a really good holiday season. I thought, anyway. And always could be better. But it's not a seasonal thing, you know, folks. The original sauce was my mom's recipe. I love the chipotle ketchup. Makes a great steak sauce, especially warmed up a little bit. My go to sandwich thing. I don't eat Mayo anymore. I do like that, that duke's Mayo, you're at duke's Mayo Conrad. I have. Pretty good. But I'm doing the mustard. It's got no sugar. I'm a diabetic too. So it's healthier for me. It's got great flavor. It makes turkey of a personality. Because turkey breast can be mighty boring. I should Jack it up with a Mesquite or this or that. What else live another life is the jalapeno honey mustard? And then, of course, no matter the weather, no matter what you're cooking, eggs, vegetables, proteins. Are seasoning is the cash cow. That's great. So we got some things that are good for the indoors. A lot.

And I was divorced at that time and I had married Jan yet. I met her there. Better through WCW ironically. On a flight, she was a flight attendant. But man, it was just a miserable place to work at that time. And man Conrad, I love pro wrestling. I love it today. I'll love it to more tomorrow. I try to demonstrate that on Wednesday nights. This old bachelor still loves what he does. And boy, there are times when if I had had a better offer. If McMahon would call me up out of fear to get out of my contract and go to work for me. That's how badly it was. And it was that way every frigging day. Every frigging day. And a lot of people don't understand that. The sales, my God, my boy. All that stuff. It was just the worst time that year 1990 was probably one of the worst years I've had in the business since I got in in 74. Well, it was a big year for staying because he finally wins the world title, but melts are summed it up like this. Realistically sting never had a chance. The fact that his return from knee surgery to win the title a result that was hardly wrestling's best kept secret failed to sell out Baltimore was an unheated warning sign. Getting a huge pop and drawing huge houses aren't the same thing. Still, sting had to win the title on July 8th. The match was the largest grossing NWA event since flair and Fox sold out Baltimore a year earlier for flair's comeback. With the less legitimate injury, at the same story. Although pay per view figures are often unreliable, it appears the flare sting match did the most money on a pay per view of any NWA show. While an argument can be made that Luger and not sting should have been given the title. To do so, would have eliminated the biggest House of the year. The best pay per view in company history, and what should have been too solid months or so of solid house shoe gates for rematches. At least in theory. But to base the entire feature on the company on some one who was untested and the position of champion with the idea that there was no looking back was foolish. The decibel level of staying entrances, and the results of a demographic survey done by people who don't know or understand the first thing about what draws money and wrestling did not maintain was going to be the 1990s answer to Hulk Hogan. The answer was, sting deserved a chance, but in the meantime, if for some reason it didn't work out, there was always Ric Flair. Right. What say you is things first title Rowan categorized as a disappointment in your mind? And if so, what could have been changed to make it more successful? Well, yes, this is my answer. It was not handled well. Secondly, you'd love to be able to omit the untimely patella injury. Oh, yeah. That's the kneecap. As you can eliminate that, that would have solved a lot of issues. The fact that we didn't have any it seemed to be a lack of commitment to staying because of the lack of commitment to build heels, a heel factory for him to work with. And most bookers I ever worked with would have gotten some of their best workers together. I want to have you, you're going to have a run with staying. It's going to be for the title should make a little money. And we didn't have that. So we didn't have that table set. We weren't ready for him to be the champion, and again, we sure as shit weren't ready for the patella injury that sent him on the shelf and slowed everything down. So it was frustrating. And then successful. Based on expectations for staying because of the sky was the limit for him. Well, we got a lot of questions here for the show. I don't know that we'll get to them all. Let's do one here. Andrew wants to know, did sting have input from the WWE booking committee or did he ever discuss what opponents he would have liked to work with? He had input, yeah, he had input. I don't know how often it was taken. But he certainly had an input going right without a doubt. He was there a few years. And he was kind of tenure. And he knew that the company had high expectations for him. So he parlayed that influence. To his betterment, which is smart. Thomas wants to know, high uncle Jim, belated birthday wishes, sting is an icon, but back in 1991, what holes did he have in his game if any. Well, I think his promo of Valerie was something he had to work on. And become a better communicator and he did. He said he especially like today, he's got he's got great timing. But he hadn't found that timing yet in his promo, so I'd say his promos were the most lacking element of his game. Here's another one. This one is from Kurt, could the black scorpion have worked in general if it wasn't sting's first for you to champion, and if it was actually done successfully, who could they have unmasked to make it a success? Well, that's a tough question, you know, they weren't going to go out and spend big money on somebody. It seemed like they didn't. They rebooted an age. In that role, as we've been discussing. So I don't know that we had anybody on our roster. There could have made the impact as the black scorpion, as what we did. Didn't have that we didn't have the bodies on the roster. And again, they were lack they were leery of going out and investing more money..

"He had a good time. So and I was just babysitter, which almost ran that second marriage. It didn't do any favors, I'll say that, because I couldn't tell time. So I got home a little late a couple. Okay, ten times. I don't know. Often. But it was fun. But that was I've had more fun than I promised you than what we did all that this portion of this portion of sting's career was no fun to work there. Very frustrating. And I completely, I don't know what shivani would say. Was he there then? Yeah, he came back for this. He was back in my RoboCop. Yeah. Okay, well, how about that? Yeah, he left talk over on The Ultimate Warrior to come back for RoboCop and immediately regretted it. Yeah. We all regret it. We don't even get Tony coming back. We just regretted what we're trying to call. Because they dropped those things in your lap, expecting you as a broadcaster to make some sense out of it. And at least you buy. Without it being too ridiculous. That was challenging to do when people were heads or swiveling wild animals being processed and all that stuff, man. So it was not good. It was not good Conrad. You know, I take a lot of pride in what I do. I'm a lot better at doing wrestling than I am. I'll say that admittedly. But we were short on wrestling. And we had guys on the roster that could damn sure wrestle. Because were they as good as they were back in their primes? Nope. They could still go out and give you 7 or 8 minutes of quality time. And you move on. And you notice on those match times we discussed, you're staying. Unless it was Nate's tinto minutes. And thus plenty. The good story, ten 12 minutes of work just fine. So, but that's wasn't the perception of what we were doing. So let's talk about the match here briefly, or at least the fallout. In case you're wondering, we have covered starrcade 1990 flayer versus staying as the black scorpion versus sting. That was grilling JR number 89 from December 24th, 2020, go check that out in the archives. But I do want to mention that this is interesting because, well, here's what Meltzer says. Probably around late November with the house show situation reaching a new low, the decision was made to go back to flair. Originally the change was to occur at starrcade, with flare wrestling as the black scorpion and winning the title. But sting didn't want to put flare over in that scenario. Sting refused since he wanted to finish the scorpion scenario with a victory in the blow off, as it became obvious the company insisted on the change, staying agreed to do it on January 11th at the meadow lands. Since he did, flare agreed to put sting over as the scorpion for starrcade. So it's a little thing, but in hansa, would that have been better to give the black scorpion a run if it really was going to be staying and try to find a creative way to finish it off or is it better just, man, let's just shoot this angle in the head and move on. Yeah, the latter, the latter. Definitively. Let's get out of this shit. We got a chance to divest ourselves of this incredible storyline. And it's not working. To any large degree of considering the TV time is getting. It's not the best thing for our future. The future of the business there in staying. So if we can get out of this shit, let's do it. Let's, you know, the official cut bait thing, you know about that. Well, we need to cut bait. Time to go. And that's what we did. And he also made flair happy. That was important. Because he got something back on the trade. He won a debate. He won a little argument. And for guys like him that are used to steering their own boat, by and large. That meant a lot. So one of the old one of the old philosophers of pro wrestling is that whatever you do get your main event in the ring. And I've been involved in some situations like that. The Jarrett, China thing. That way. Acquiesced to the guy to get the match in The Rain. Then he figured out how quick he can say ideas. So that's kind of where we were with that. Well, let's talk about the match here, Meltzer would say flare pin sting and 20 minutes and 38 seconds to regain the WCW title, crab will split 50 50 in the first 8 minutes, sting got the larger pop coming out. Although flair was obviously very much respected. When flare and sting did their Yale, a spot designed to put over sting, flair got a bigger reaction for his. Staying sting got every bit of big as an initial reaction, but suddenly a lot of booze. Sting wasn't really into this match, which held it back, but it was still better than anything else on the card. The match was nowhere close to the same match these two had in the same building in August, however, the crowd became more and more pro flair as the match went on, he's basically doing his normal routine with the pacing being slow and all action with no rest spots and the crowds totally into it. The finish saw staying come off the top rope and hit flare and the referee. So now sting has flare pinned, but there's no ref. So sting puts flare in a small package, but again there's no referee. When the ref finally recovers, flare hits a shoulder block and fell on staying for the pen, and at the count of two, sting got a foot on the ropes, but flares scooped it off before the referee saw it three and a half stars, Ric Flair is your world champion. And it happened, January, at the Meadowlands, 1991, in the middle of a freaking blizzard. Do you remember this? Yeah. It's chilly. I'm glad I took my coat. Yeah, I remember it. Conrad, we are group. And it was almost like a group of individuals, which is what it was technically..

"Should learn something. And if that wasn't worth something really important, then we're all missing a boat here. So Oli was just lucky he had, that was another thing about being only had that territory. And Georgia, and he used these guys a lot. So those guys half assed owed Ole a little bit because of the paydays, he earned them back when they needed it. So I think that was a blessing quite frankly. You know, even though we make fun of holiness ban laws and hitting himself in the head and shit like that. He was just crass as ill. And I used to almost go hide. It was. So it didn't run into only. Then on the rare chance you did late at night, he would say, you boys better write that Sunday show, 'cause I'm sure as hell not. You don't ride it ain't gonna happen. It'll leave. So shivani now would take all the existing elements that fit storyline wise. Package them up and do a show. As always, he was very unique in a lot of ways, but he was not a dumb ass by any stretch. He understood the pro wrestling business. He's like cowboy sometimes. Communication skills could have been used a little softening up, maybe. I want to mention that Harley race here pops up for WCW. At that great American bash show. And that's an early July. I think it's July 7th. Yeah, July 7th. But the reason I'm noting this is just about a month earlier. I think it's June 9th. Harley was arrested for operating a boat while under the influence of alcohol. He had a 23 foot boat in the Lake of the Ozarks. He hit another boat from behind, he sent four passengers from that boat to the hospital, to suffered broken legs, one had a collapsed lung, two other surfer lacerations, and this accident happened on the 8th, but on the 9th, they came and arrested. But the irony of this whole thing, this famous legendary boating accident. Harley's not injured at all. That was boats totaled, and basically so was everyone else, but hardly just walks away. The dude was Iron Man, was he not? Yeah, the good lord had bigger planes, I guess, or Harley. Yeah, because he of all rights should have been dead. He had car the same deal. Carlock couldn't even determine what kind of car it was. And that was the one Harley was driving. He walk away. It was amazing thing I never been around in that regard. But he also was a tough son of a gun. When New York gosh, talk about his tough guys and just that the shooters and all everything. I wouldn't take Harley race against any. I wouldn't just put anybody gets already raced, except to win because he's not an amateur. Or an MMA guy. He's just a Street Fighter. And he was a real good one. I'll tell you. I never heard of him. So that was an interesting time. It seemed like we couldn't get a break, Conrad. Stieg is Steve sting gets injured and February. You know, flares he's going to reluctantly resign. It's just, it's just crazy. Well, the whole Harley race substitution, they first go with that. July 14th, 1990, in St. Louis, which makes a ton of sense, but we continue in the Omni and that's going to be protocol for a little bit. It seems obvious that we're setting up sting to have an opponent and Sid, Sid is going to be his first big challenger. And I guess it makes sense to let the whole flare staying thing breathe a little bit. The houses aren't great coming off of stings win at great American bash, but in fairness, the house show business wasn't exactly set in the Woods on fire beforehand. Do you remember Jim heard or all the Anderson? I guess as he's heading up the booking committee, having second thoughts once I actually saw what was going on. Okay. Yeah, because we weren't selling tickets at a lot of events. Yeah. People weren't leaving their homes, getting in their cars, loading the kids up and going to the arena and parking. And buying a ticket, they had made that they had not made that level of the commitment yet to staying, who again then because he was the top babyface with his strap. Is going to be getting the blame. And that's just the mix, like you said earlier. It really doesn't make a lot of sense. You know, there's a lot of guys in that card. And you wonder how many guys comes to go to Ole whomever, booking committee and say, hey, look, I know we're short handed. I'll do this, or I can do that or I can shoot her now. I got an idea to shoot and I was so and so I don't remember that anybody breaking the door down to get themselves booked. Or to get themselves noticed. At all. It just was a very unique time. I think leadership basically leadership Conrad. If your company doesn't have it, then you know where.

"RoboCop is here and we know we're marching towards the big pay per view. The story is that RoboCop is here to stop the horseman since sting is still not fully healed and fire's gonna have the horseman in his corner for the flare Luger rematch that goes down at capital combat. Yeah, then the paper view goes down, obviously this isn't something that creative come with. This is something that Turner sort of dictated and handed down and sure. They were emulating the WWE Conrad. Yes. That's all they wanted to be. We got to have sizzle. We got a little show biz. We have tests of entertainment with our sports. And we've gone over, this has happened in this show already. Several times for we can point out where the motivational lies and motivation lied is thinking that if we just emulate and a loose way, the creator that WWE is a parley. We're going to be just fine. And that's one of the most ridiculous analogies that one could ever think of. Well, as if it's not enough, staying in RoboCop. They're joined by elie Dante. Who we've talked a little bit about. And at least thing is back in the action here, even if it is a little silly with RoboCop, but hey, if you're working with the horseman and you're the top babyface and you're not there. You're okay. Along the way was staying down. It does create opportunity, just like in traditional sports when someone goes down with an injury, there's an opportunity. Guys like junkyard dog and Paul orndorff get to come back. They're called the superheroes very briefly, not all the ideas are great ideas. And then only Anderson is named the official Booker on May 14th. So just a few months after sting sort of step or Ric Flair steps down from the booking committee, now here comes Ole Anderson. What do you think I only thought of staying? Did he see the money and sting? I think he did. I've always saw young white meat babyface. In the traditional sense. And that's what sting was you want to just break it all down, all the veneer off the persona. He was a very athletic, white meat, baby face that connected with the audience. So all he's going to Booker that even if he didn't like it, he's not going to turn down the money. Older thing always going to turn down the covers. Simple as that, man. So yeah, oh he was steamed out to be in his choice, but based on the hand that we had and that the hand that Ole inherited, it was the right way to go for only two. Well, as things going to. Have the dudes with attitudes on commentary. I should have made a star. And of course, yeah. You're able to do a little bit of commentary with staying while he's out. You're trying to buy time before he's able to get back in the ring. How was he to work with on the microphone? Hey, listen really well. And that's the key. When you are a full-time pro wrestler, and you are called upon to do television commentary, it's going to be in the color analyst like role. You're not going to do play by play. That's not your forte. And it's harder than it looks. And but he listened really well. You know, he understood the concept of not talking over each other. That kills me sometimes when I get hooked on some of the ESPN shows in the morning. And they run me off because you get multiple individuals talking at the same time. Incessantly. It's like, what the fuck you guys doing? Can't you hear somebody else's talking? I can't process every goddamn audible noise I hear. So but anyway, he was really good at being patient and listening and getting the material in. He understood the concept. So he had a good aptitude for Essex, what that told me, and that was always good to discover. Of course we know it finally happens, great American bash, 1990. Go back and revisit grilling JR number ten, which we dropped May 25th, 2020, where we talked about that show in long form, but this is the day where sting finally becomes the man. I understand that Ric Flair signed a contract extension right before, he wasn't exactly tickled to be losing the belt, but boy, what a moment it is when staying finally bade him huge celebration, huge pyro, and at this point, just as a frame of reference, WCW has never made a profit. They lost money in 88. They lost money in 89. It looks like they're still losing money here halfway through 1990, but the hope and the goal is this is going to be the as Bruce McCall at the fresh paint of coat that we're looking for, it was a big night there in Baltimore with stinger came the man, was it not? Oh yeah, yeah, it was great. They've been waiting. Anticipation is like one of the great emotions that we can sell the wrestling business or anybody else's business. If you can provide what you perceive to be, there's going to be this great offer. It's a great product. And you built to that moment, which is now in Baltimore. Fans are more than ready. I think they came there and bought tickets to see this historic day. And to me, this showed how much more valuable flair was that people thought. He was as valuable.

"To get Conrad. I like to think that I have that attitude, but I know that you horseman have it. I know that you haven't only. Let me ask you a question. You want to just do something and hang on that microphone or you want me to hang on to it. Let me just say one thing, Terry. When we have an opportunity to get the other on national television, we are running along. A statement and tonight. Once again, the horsemen are going to make a statement and a behalf of the horsemen, the spokesman Ole Anderson has a few words. We want to make sure that everybody all around the country has an opportunity to hear what I'm about to say. And I want you in particular to pay attention to its sting because you're the reason we're here tonight. I want you to know you're not going to be a horseman anymore. It's over. No more horsemen for this thing. Yeah, don't close your mouth a second. I'm going to explain something to you. I want everybody to listen real close and you listen real close. When Rick called me and called on to come in here, it was for one reason. And the reason he called us in here was to get rid of you. When I tell you, just be quiet, there's three of us standing here and there's one of you. Just wait a second. One thing that nobody looked for and nobody could figure was when you jumped in and helped Rick against this guy. We held off. A little later in the Iron Man contest, we came in at ring and we were ready to stick your head in the sand again. And as we came through the ring, Rick gave us a pay attention. Rick gave us that sign and waved us off. You were spared for the second time. And then something that nobody would have ever dreamed could happen happen. When you became one of us, a horseman. And you were a good horseman. No argument about it. You're a great wrestler. You're tough, strong kid. But you did the one on forgivable thing. That we can never forget. You know what that was? When you signed that match to meet Ric Flair for the world title on February 25th, you signed your death warrant. Are you listening now? I'm gonna tell you what I said to Rick. We all agreed we should just stop you right now, but Rick says no no. No. He's helped me one time. We let him live one time. But on one condition, and the condition is this. You go to the promoter, you go to mister Jim Ross or whoever you got to talk to. And you tell him that you're gonna cancel that contract with this man wait a minute get over here. You just listen. You listen to me and you listen real good. Anybody even a blind man could see there's three of us and there's only one of you. We're going to spare your life. You got about two hours to make up your mind. What you're going to do. And I'm telling you right now, it's only because of his nice kindness that we're going to let you live right here. Two hours, you make up your mind, you go tell Ross, you tell everybody in the world on this national TV that you're going to give up that chance at the world title. You understand? Sting. I bought you a little time because what you got. The whole deal is this, you got two hours to make up your mind and you're no longer a harsh man, and if we ever see you again, you're not going to be quite so lucky as you are tonight. Come on. Look at this. I'm trying to tell you. I want you to die. Get out of here. I can not believe this but this is the greatest thing I've ever seen in my life. This is pathetic. Rick flair absolutely pathetic. He gave the guy chance. Well, gave the guy change. Yeah, you're a big chance. We're gonna be right back. Let's continues live. Don't go away. We'll be right. So there you go. What a masterful angle, it's great. Now we know sting is no longer a horseman. He's got two hours to decide, but it feels like the decision was made for him. Great angle man Terry funk and all the Anderson and Ric Flair and staying just good stuff. And I got shout out from Ole. How about that? No, it's well done. And I would say all those guys had a hand in only may have been the leader and the creative one of the guys that had great influence. But the all those guys were able to contribute. And look what you got there. Yeah, Ole. You got R? Aren't any bad talker? Somebody's noticed. You know, Terry funk took promos in the level of anybody. So and always has been that's one of his great skills. So I wasn't surprised it was good, but what I found funny in the after fact is how many times wholly tried to get everybody back on track and stay within the time that they had allotted for it. Did you notice that? Yeah. So he was directing traffic in only Anderson way. He would if he was the real guy. So it was a good piece of business. And literally one hour later, it all went to shit. Ole Anderson is going to replace thing in the cage match and sting is going to run out to confront flair, but as he's climbing the cage and gets pulled down, he blows out his knee. And this is going to be a major blow to the point where you guys all come back and mate in Atlanta, just figure out what the hell do we do now? On Tuesday, he's going to have surgery with doctor Jim Andrews. They're saying he's going to be out to August sting, is hoping to beat that and come back in July. But we got a pay per view later this month and we're scrambling to figure.

"Case in the case, known as Jacobson vs Massachusetts. Jacobson. His lawyers argued that the Cambridge vaccination order was a violation of the 14th amendment rights. Which forbade the state from depriving any person of life, liberty or property without due process of law. Question then was whether the right to refuse vaccination was among those protected. Of the personal liberties, the Supreme Court rejected Jacobs argument and doubt the anti vaccination movement is stinging loss. Writing for the majority Justice John Marshall Harlan acknowledge the fundamental importance of personal freedom. But also recognize that rights of the individual in respect of his liberty may at times under the pressure of great dangers. Be subjected to such restraint to be enforced by reasonable regulation, says the safety of the general public main demand. This decision established what became known as the reasonableness test. The government had the authority to pass laws that restricted individual liberty if those restrictions, including the punishment for violating them were found by the court to be reasonable means for achieving a public good. Bottom line. There had to be some kind of real and substantial connection between the law itself and legitimate purposes. The Jacobson decision provided a powerful controversial president. To the extent of government authority in the early 20th century. In 1922, the Supreme Court heard another vaccination case, this time concerning a Texas student named Rosalind sucked, who was barred from attending public school because her parents refused to have her vaccinating. Zach's lawyers argue the school district ordinance requiring proof of vaccination denied her equal protection of laws. Under the 14th amendment. The court disagreed.

"What are the interesting things about. Hedge funds and venture investors. Is that often times. One really big contrarian bet that pays off can solidify investors reputation for a very very long time. John paulson had one of those bets. Betting against the housing market in advance of the great financial crisis. That position ended up netting him and his investors something like twenty billion dollars which is very clearly a career defining bet however it hasn't been quite as good since then at peak in twenty eleven pulse and managed thirty eight billion that was down to nine billion by twenty nineteen when he shut down his hedge fund and started managing his own money an estimated three point five billion instead this is not the scoff at three point five billion dollar fortune but simply to point out the paulsen is proven himself to be pretty firmly in the camp of one really good call which perhaps takes the sting out of his recent comments on bloomberg wealth with david.

"sting" Discussed on The Dictionary

"The nerds welcome to another episode of this. Podcast called the dictionary. Yes we are at the top of page one. Ten One ten. It is amazingly page. That's before one eleven first word is be stung. B E Hyphen S. T. U. N. G. It is it is in N. It is an adjective from eighteen. Twenty to having a red puffy appearance as if from being stung by a bee as in Bee Stung Lips. Those my personal opinion is those can look. Kinda weird you you. Google Bee Stung Lips. And you're bound to find some funky pictures. Next is Beeswax Noun from sixteen fifty five and we have the number one definition for the word. Wax NEXT IS BEAT. Noun from before the twelfth century a biennial garden plant of the Goose Foot family that includes several cultivars and that has thick edible leaves with long. Pt Olds and often swollen purplish red routes. Also it's route used especially as a vegetable as a source of sugar and four edge. The scientific name for this biennial garden plant is Beta vulgaris and in parentheses. It says after let's see includes several cultivars as Swiss chard and sugarbeet. So those are a couple. Examples beets are pretty healthy for you You know you. Maybe don't Wanna eat them every single day like Dwight from the office but they are good for you on occasion and it might turn your p kind of red So don't don't freak out. Don't don't be scared. It is a very common occurrence if you have some beats anyway. We're going to move on to beat armyworm. Armyworm is one word and then beat is its own word. Noun from eighteen ninety four and armyworm that typically eats the fully `age of Beets Alfalfa and vegetables. And the scientific name is spot up terra or it's probably pronounced spot Darah exit. I love scientific names. I have no idea what they mean. Though next is Beetle B. E. E. T. L. E. It is the I form Noun from before the twelfth century. I'm looking did I miss them at Emoji? No I think we're good number one. Any of an order of insects having four wings of which the outer pair are modified into stiff elettra that protect the inner pair when at rest number to any of various insects resembling a beetle. That word illiterate. I've never seen that before the L. Y. T. R. I hope I pronounced it correctly. This is from Middle English. Bettiah B. E. T. y. l. l. e. from the old English Bitola Akin to beaten which means to bite so Beatles bite. They don't necessarily all bite though. But that's where the word came from. It looks like now we have the second form of beetle it is a verb Specifically an inch transitive verb from circa nineteen nineteen to scurry like a beetle as editors Beatles around the office and now we have the third form of beetle. It is an adjective from the fourteenth century being permanent and overhanging as in. Oh I think I skipped a couple of lines. Let's try that again. The third form of beetle is a noun from before the twelfth century. One a heavy wooden hammering or ramming instrument number two a wooden pestle or bat for domestic tasks. This is from middle English battelle from old English battelle akin to the old English baton which means to beat. Now we have the fourth form of beetle. This was the one that I started to read accidentally. It is an adjective from fourteenth century being prominent and overhanging as in beetle brows. Whoa so if you've got like really Oh. So Eugene Levy would. His eyebrows considered beetle brows because they look like Beatles. I don't know that they don't at all This is from Middle English. Bittel browde which means having overhanging brows probably from battle orbital which means beetle and now we have the fifth form of beetle it is an in transitive verb man. I screwed that whole thing up I went. I bounced around all these different forms of Beatles. All right this is an transitive. Verb from sixteen to the synonyms are project. Or is it project? No I think it's project and Jut J. U. T. As in to scale the beat aline crags and that is a quote from R L Stevenson enough. Oh I wanted to say about the word beetle. The band the Beatles you may have noticed they don't spell it like the insect beetle. They actually spelled B. E. A. T. L. E. If I'm remembering correctly the story is that John Lennon saw in a dream that their band name would be the Beatles with an A. I don't know how true that is. I could be messing it up but anyway. That's the that's the story all right now. We have beat leafhopper. Two words leafhopper is one word. It is a noun from nineteen o six. A leaf hopper. That transmits transmits YEP transmits curly top. Virus to sugar beets and other garden plants and the scientific name for this leafhopper is circle liver. Tennis NEXT IS B. Tree. Two words noun from seventeen seventy three a hollow tree in which honey bees nest next is beat. Route One word. Noun from fifteen seventy nine it is chiefly British and it means a beat grown for its edible usually red route. Also the route so the route has just called. Beetroot next is B. B. E. E. V. E. S. And this is just the plural of the word beef which we read a couple of episodes ago now is be yard one word. Noun from the fifteenth century. And we just have the synonym APIARY IN. Apiary is a B. Yard. Next is the abbreviation bath. B E F or beef. And it's just an abbreviation for the word before. Now we have B E F again but this one is all caps it is an abbreviation for British Expeditionary Force Expeditionary Force. Yeah next is befall. It is a verb from the thirteenth century. I is transitive to happen. Especially as if by fate and then they transitive definition says to happen to as in the fate that befell them. That would be the past tense. Form Befell Now. We have be fit. It is a verb from the fifteenth century only We just have one transitive definition to be proper or becoming too as in clothing that befits the occasion. I'd like to wear clothes that do not fit the occasion. No that's not true. I'm a little bit too embarrassed to do that but in my mind. I want to do things like that. I want to wear a Tux to a fast food restaurant. If I were to actually go to fast food restaurants but I feel I would be embarrassed. Okay next is befitting. It is an adjective from circa sixteen. Twelve number one we just have the synonyms. Suitable and appropriate number. Two synonyms are proper and decent. Befitting Lee is an adverb. Next is befogged. It is a verb from sixteen. O One we have two transitive definitions. The first one just has the synonym confused. And then the second one has the synonyms fog and obscure next is Ba- fool. It's the word fool with A. B. E. at the front it is a transitive verb from the fourteenth century. One to make a fool of and then number two we have the number one definition for the word delude. I often be fool myself. All Right now. We have the last word of this episode. We are going to do to forms. The word is before B. E. F. O. R. E. and then the third form will be in the next episode. So I form. It is an adverb or an adjective from before the twelfth century number one in advance and then a synonym is ahead as in marching on before marching on before and then number two at an earlier time as in the night before also as in knew her before. And let's see. The entomology isn't terribly interesting so we're going to move onto the second form of before. It is a preposition from before the twelfth century. One a one forward of or in front of as in stood before the fire won a two in the presence of as in speaking before the conference one be under the jurisdiction or consideration of as in the case before the court one see one at the disposal of as in the great sums placed before Him One C. To in store for as in got the whole summer before you. Oh isn't that great when you're a kid when you're an adult and you have a job you don't get a summer usually unless you're a teacher or something number two preceding in time earlier than as in just before noon a- well that would be one fifty nine no eleven fifty nine. I'm so stupid number. Three in a higher or more important position than as in put quantity before quality I think I would prefer to do it the other way around and I hope you will do to. What is the word of the episode? I think we are going to pick the word that is the one called beet armyworm just because I think that's kind of a funny phrase a funny mixture of words together a right. That is it for this episode. I appreciate you joining me during this quarantine. I hope that you are all doing well. And you are staying clean and washing hands and at this point wearing masks if you go outside or go to a store especially you really should be wearing a mask. It should be prepared correctly and there should be no space between the mask in your skin. And you know it's with his life is weird right now. All right I'M GONNA end this episode. This has been Spencer dispensing information into your brain. Thank you ain't goodbye..
