"Now. Thanks for being with us tonight. We certainly appreciate everybody calling and the phones are still busy as they can be. We're gonna get back to telephones, Jim Ross, along with cactus Jack live from our studios in Atlanta on west peachtree, 47° right now in Atlanta. And of course, we'll be back with you here next week down the clock. Eastern Time for more talking talk about WCW and wrestling in general, and we're gonna have another live guest in the studio next week, so we certainly hope that you will tune in. Let's go back to telephones and talk to Anthony, who's been holding quite some time Anthony on wrestling with Jim Ross and cactus Jack. Three things to say. Okay. Are you coming to WCW? Won the IWC khaki title. I don't know. Possibility, haven't heard anything confirmed, but it is possible. After he punched his for you doing nothing to him? Yeah, you know, that's a good point. I hadn't really even thought about the fact that I didn't do anything to Johnny be bad. I just think that he's somewhat of a poor loser. A source sport and he figures he might as well get his shots in on cactus Jack while he can, but I'll tell you what, you know, I may get Johnny be back back in a cafe or some rock and roll lounge club, but as far as now my concentration is 100% on securing my financial future by retrieving that bounty that's been placed on earth watch his neck. What do you say hi that we say that centers in either doctor Richard leather when you see him? Run that by me again? It's high to doctor Richard levitt. Well, sure, next time I see doctor Richard levit I'll tell him that Jeff said hello. Thank you. Okay, buddy. Is that your psychologist or something? Anyway, let's talk to, let's talk to who we got here. We got James in Rome. Jason and Rome, Jason, you're on wrestling with Jim Ross and cactus Jack. I got a couple questions for a cactus. All right. What happened to Abdullah? Did y'all have a couple of problems? You know, I think my problems with Abdullah the butcher are well documented. I don't think that our. Jim, I'm at a loss for words. You know, Abdul and I were together as one person. We were soulmates. I don't think that that was as well documented. Abdullah does a lot of things. You see he's in and out of my life, but he's constantly in the back of my mind. Right now he finds that. That's a scary thought. Right now he finds it. He makes a lot of money on the open market and places like Japan and Puerto Rico, but I'll guarantee you this. He's only one phone call or one good scream away. I really don't think you could have picked a better partner than him. Other than Tony antlers. I remember when he was with the NWA and he was one of my favorites in it and he still want my favorite, but the final comment on would like to say, is that you're really not one of my favorites, but I hope you tear Eric watts in half. It's basically the lesser of two evils and you hate my guts, but you hate him from head to toe is what you're saying. Oh, cactus, I don't know. Let's talk to James and batavia, Ohio, James you're on Russell and Jim Ross and cactus Jack. Yes, Jim, I was wondering what happened to Jimmy James Garvin. Jimmy jam Garvin is the best of my knowledge has gotten out of the sport of wrestling and I'm not sure what he's doing. He may be doing something that has to do with aviation, but I'm not positive about that. 'cause I'm in real estate and real estate. I hear he's very happy though. Yeah. And we're happy for him and he got out healthy or pretty healthy and that's always good news. Thanks for your call, James from up there in Ohio. Yolanda, where are you calling from? Me? Yep. Louisiana. Yeah. Okay, well, what's on your mind? Oh, there's a lot. This is your ride. Yep. Oh, we are coming back to Freeport Louisiana. Going back to Shreveport. Well, Yolanda were, I think we're going to be down and we're going to be in Monroe on the 9th in New Orleans on the tenth. I know I've been so excited for about two months to get this. This thing I don't get on this. I don't do this big. Okay, well, why don't you get asked as a question so we can get some of these other nice folks on also, Eli. Yeah. The cast is that. Yeah. Do you like what you got against things? Well, I haven't against him. Personally, nothing. You see, I want, let me tell you this. If you really get inside sting and you're telling him, you ask, if you just went out and asked what he thought of cactus Jack, he'd probably say he hates my gods. If you got inside his head and found out what he really thought a sting he'd probably say he loved cactus Jack. Because I'll tell you this. It wasn't for cactus Jack sting wouldn't be where he is today. At the time I came into world championship wrestling sting me to real jolt. He was put in a do or die situation and this thing decided he was gonna survive. That's what he did. He became twice the wrestler when I was through with him as he was when I met up with them. So what I have against thing nothing. He made me a household world and a word and he's made me a lot of money. But if he gets in my way again, I'll take him out of the sport. Yolanda, thanks for your call from down there in Louisiana. We appreciate you calling tonight. Let's talk to Brett very quickly and smart and Brett your own restaurant Jim Ross and cactus Jack. Yes, first of all, a new U.S. dollar permit. Even though steamboat to win, I mean, like steamboat, I like to win them in dusty Rhodes win because that would be a phenomenal finals match. Yeah, it'd be a good one. It sure would. It's not sure that dusty is entered in this. He's talking about. I'm sure he's talking about Dustin, I'm thinking. Yes. What else, Brett? Um, my question is, what is your prediction for the U.S. dollar permit? Well, I'll tell you something. I think it'll be a finals between for it's hard to say who's going to, I think Dustin Rhodes has a good shot at beating Tony Atlas and even though cactus Jack is setting your no disrespect to mister Atlas. I think but I think maybe Barry Windham is the guy that may, it's hard to say. That's just too close to call. Cactus, I know your thoughts are obviously lie with Tony Atlas. Let's talk about the arm wrestling. Well, now we're talking about the U.S. title. Okay, I was thinking there's not a thought in my mind, not a doubt that Tony out is going to take the thought in your mind. You've been saying that for years, but that's not the issue here. No, I think as far as U.S. tournament yeah, I think Tony Atlas with the right counseling. If he tries to do it on his own he doesn't stand a chance if he stands by me then he has a good shot at winning the U.S. championship. Talk to Sue and powder sprang so you're in wrestling Jim Ross and cactus Jack. Thank you for the Christmas card you sent me. I thought that was real nice. You're welcome. If you wrote me, if you wrote me, you probably got a Christmas card. Yeah, I got a question. I answer all my mail. Okay, sorry. And also, I wanted to ask the question about the more I feel like that the OWS. A couple of years ago in the OGS, there was a blond haired kid. A young guy doing me announcement. He was

"How you doing, Jim? Good. I got three questions. I live up here in Pennsylvania near Pittsburgh. When is WCW going to come back to Pittsburgh? And I also want to know with that, we lost WWF wrestling on our station channel 11. What's the chances of WC and W taking over? Taking over that slot? Yeah. Well, I had a meeting in Pittsburgh Ted about a month ago. I flew up there and met with channel 11. And we're discussing some things. We're going to meet a little bit later on this month to see if there's a possibility that we could become affiliated with our station. It's ironic that that station is owned by the same group that owns WSB here in Atlanta and it's a great group of people and hopefully something can come of that with one of our broadcast on that station. I don't know. We're just talking right now, so it certainly nothing official. But we would love to come to Pittsburgh on a regular basis. But again, once we strengthen our television position, the market will have a better marketing opportunity there, but hopefully sometime a 93 Pittsburgh's going to become one of the at least semi regular stops. Did you know I learned to wrestle in Pittsburgh? I did that. I certainly did. You said about a month ago that there was going to be some new wrestlers coming in. Is it possible that you can on your show in the near future, give possible some background of the new wrestlers? Sure. Ted, I'll tell you what the deal is is that I want to be sure that these people that are on their way don't have any contractual problems and we don't get them any trouble with their jobs. But I certainly will. And there are going to be some new faces. As a matter of fact, several new faces, I think, will be competing in WCW, especially here in the early part of this year. I want to remind everyone once again, the clash of the champions is going to be in Milwaukee, Wisconsin from Mecca on Wednesday, January 13th, 7 o'clock central 8 o'clock Eastern Time live as it happens on TBS, two and a half hours live in prime time, the big main event that's been signed and 8 man thunder cage match. It's a no disqualification come dressed as you are, street fight. And the team signed include sting, Ron Simmons, van hammer, and Dustin Rhodes. Their opponents are scheduled to be the barbarian Barry Windham, big van Vader and ravishing Rick rude. Now that the course is the tentative situation there is Roode's Nick, you know, and you know, Ron Simmons has got a bad shoulder. We're going to talk about that a little bit later in our program. But the Milwaukee Wisconsin event is going to be live on TBS on Wednesday, January 13th. Ricky steamboat and Shane Douglas defend the unified World Tag titles against a flying Brian Pillman and stunning Steve Austin. Cactus Jack my guest tonight in the studio will meet Eric watts in a bounty match. Heavy metal van hammer goes one on one with Tony Atlas in an arm wrestling contest, plus you'll see the tag team of Johnny Gunn and the Z man take on the wrecking crew, two co Scorpio takes on Scottie flamingo and Brad Armstrong meets Chris Benoit. It's going to be mayhem in Milwaukee. Live on TBS 7 o'clock, a central 8 o'clock Eastern Time, live on TBS from Mecca in Milwaukee, the clash of the champions Wednesday, January 13th, and we'll be back with more a restaurant Jim Ross on news talk radio, a.m. 7 50 WSB. Atlanta, this is the stinger here for Jim Ross on a.m. 7 50 WSB. Give him a call and talk to him right now on 8 7 two zero 7 50 or one 800 WSB talk. Call

"Didn't the WCW all of the talent they had and starrcade instead of just some of the guys a couple of they used them two or three times at night? Well, giving an illustrator, who didn't wrestle it, she wanted to see. Mmm um. And Steve Austin. And instead, I saw big fan Vader Russell. I thought he was just going to be in the one match. I saw steam. Well, I'm already new, but. Like some of the guys like muda, I didn't know he was going to be in the match, and battle ball as well. Well, I don't think he did either till he got there. And then, you know, so Jason, you're asking the question, I don't really have an answer for. You're asking the philosophical question that I'm quite honestly. I don't know what the answer is. You know, I thought that the tag matches for the most part were pretty competitive. I think any time that you put random teams together randomly, cactus, I'm not a wrestler. You can elaborate on this much better than I. But I think any time you put random people together on a, I don't want to say it's spur of the moment. I mean, it's an impulse thing. You know, draw the name draw the name, there you go. Sometimes those matches are not as technically smooth and as technically perfect as a lot of us would like to see. Well, that's right. No, I was in a different situation because I'd known for three or four weeks who my partner is going to be, but still there was no communication. I couldn't even talk to him before him because he wouldn't speak to me. For some reason, but as far as the other people are concerned, sure, it's a blind drawing so it goes to show that van Vader didn't know he was going to be in battle Bobo when he got that much prestige on the line and a $5000 ring. Sure, it's something that everybody wants. A lot of wrestlers put that right on a par with a Super Bowl or a World Series. People are vying for that. So of course, even though van Vader is also competing for the king of cable, he wants his hand in the battle bowl also because a battle bowl wind goes a long way to determining your financial future in WCW. So I think what you're basically have a problem with is odds and there's nothing you can do about it. Odds are what they are. Jason, thanks for your call tonight from Augusta. We appreciate you holding as long as you did. And we will hope to talk to you again soon. Let's talk to Jordan and union, South Carolina, Jordan, thanks for holding your own restaurant Jim Ross and cactus Jack. Brett, first I'd like to say, thank you for those three W. And I've got a few questions. Okay. Who wouldn't? Um, how do you continue to the U.S. title semifinal? Well, the semifinals this week will see Ricky steamboat and Barry Windham and Tony Atlas and Dustin Rhodes. That'll be this Saturday on WCW Saturday night. The winners of those matches will meet in the finals, and then the winner of that is scheduled to meet ravishing Rick rude on Saturday, January 23rd for the U.S. title on WCW Saturday night. That's obviously all contingent on ravishing Rick rude. Being able to compete at that point in time due to his neck injury. Back to as counted big invader winds of paddle. Well, Jordan, as I mentioned at the beginning of the program, I haven't seen the videotape yet, and cactus, if you heard any of the scuttlebutt from the wrestlers regarding the match, I haven't heard anything I haven't been in contact with any of the wrestlers. I don't know how he wanted them just glad he did. So, but we'll have that videotape on that match some highlights of it will be on TV this weekend, so catch the television and you'll find out when we all do, because I said, I haven't seen anything. I make sure to see it. We appreciate your call on that for me in your South Carolina, talk to Ryan, who's calling us from knightstown, Indiana. Bobby knightstown. Yes, it is. Well, Bobby was Bobby had a bad day today, didn't he? Yeah, he did, he got beat by three points. Yeah, that was good ball game though. Yes, it was. Yeah. I got a few college for cactus. What are they? Well, I could hear the all time greatest and I just like to I remember you when you wrestled there together and those were all good old time matches. How could you remember that being from Indiana? I've seen a lot of rest one. I just hope you're May and Tony Atlas wins the arm wrestling content. Well, yeah, I'm very proud of Tony. I especially proud how he handled van hammer. I don't know if it's a secret and out there been a few problems in my little group there. Some guys maybe not paying attention what I want them to, but Tony's really showed himself, showed what he was made of their against van hammer, he's going to continue to do that at the clash of the champions. I hope so. All right, Ryan, anything else? What happened to Greg Valentine and dick slater? I don't know where I heard Greg Valentine is wrestling wrestling international tour, maybe recently or to go to Africa or Nigeria. Okay. He's risked both those guys. I'm assuming are doing some freelance rushing wrestling for some independent promotions in that type of thing. The best of my knowledge, but as far as I know, they're both still competing. They're both real tough guys. There's no doubt about that. Thanks for your call, let's talk to Chris in our stale, hi, Chris. You're on wrestling with Jim Ross

"Number one 800 WSB talk all 9 lines are blinking. So we've got a lot of folks are trying to get in. So we encourage you to keep calling. We're going to be taking as many of your phone calls as we possibly can and we'll be getting to the telephones in just a few moments. Of course, the big news in WCW right now is that this past Wednesday on December the 30th in Baltimore, Maryland and the Baltimore arena, big van Vader, the 450 pounder former Colorado buffalo defeated Ron Simmons to win the WCW World's heavyweight championship. I have not seen the footage of the contest yet, so I really can't give you any details on how it occurred, but I do know that this weekend on television on TBS we're going to have a full report from my Baltimore on that event. So big band Vader is the new world's heavyweight champion as of Wednesday night, December the 30th from the Baltimore arena over Ron Simmons and that championship event. We're also going to be talking about the WCW calendar of advanced a lot of a big live cards coming up in the next few weeks, including the big one in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on Wednesday, January 13th. That would not only be a tremendous card at Mecca in Milwaukee, but it will also be broadcast live on TBS, that'll be Wednesday, January 13th, 8 o'clock, Eastern Time, 7 o'clock central time on TV. Super brawl three. The next pay per view for WCW is Sunday, February 21st, and that will be from Asheville, North Carolina, and of course, it seems like we just finished a pay per view as a matter of fact, we did on Monday night December 28th here in the Omni in Atlanta, starrcade 92. And we'll also update you on what we're going to be seeing this weekend on television. Coming up this weekend, some exciting things is, again, as we prepare for some of the major events here in the early part of 1993. Some interesting things are coming about. It would seem, I think, regarding some of the rivalries involving say Dustin Rhodes and Barry Windham. There's a lot of news to talk about as far as the United States title is concerned, or she saw that the tournament did start yesterday on WCW Saturday night to determine the number one contender for ravishing Rick or United States heavyweight championship and that championship could be in jeopardy because Roode has not defended it in over 30 days now. He's basically going on borrowed time, I guess we could say and due to his injury, he may be stripped of the championship if he's unable to defend it on January 23rd on television. Ricky steamboat and Shane Douglas have signed a contract to defend their unified World Tag Team Championship. That feature event will be on as a part of the clash of the champions as they'll take on the new combination of flying Brian Pillman and Steve Austin. So a lot of things to talk about regarding the next several weeks in television, the big events I'd like to know your thoughts and what you think is going on. And how do you think about this situation with a big van Vader as the world's heavyweight champion and comments you may have to make in the world of wrestling. And again, we'll be getting your telephone calls in just a few moments. But in the studio tonight, we have one of the most dangerous competitors in WCW, a man that has been parentally ranked in the WCW top ten for quite some time as a matter of fact, and who's unorthodox wrestling style certainly knows no equals. I can say that he takes more chances perhaps on his own torso than anyone I've ever been around and it's all the way from truth or consequences New Mexico here live and WSB studios. We welcome cactus Jack. Well, that's right, Jim, maybe perennial area in the top ten of WCW, but always number one in the hearts of the fans. You see it's gonna be a big, big WCW week coming up for me. We've got Tony Atlas in the U.S. tournament. Tony Atlas also putting his guns on the line against van hammer and that arm wrestling tournament and also cactus Jack's going to become an even richer man at the clash of the champions. I want to talk more about the class of the champions cactus in a few moments, but what are your comments on Ron Simmons losing the world's heavyweight championship to big van Vader? Obviously, anytime you get into a one on one power match situation with Vader. I don't care. I haven't seen the athlete yet that can match him power for power. He's a huge monster of an individual, great agility for a man his size, what's your reaction when you heard that simis lost the title levator? My reaction that it was only a matter of time and I was surprised didn't happen earlier and I'll tell you this. I'm not taking anything away from Ron Simmons, but what I am questioning is his head. You see, for a long time, I was on TV practically begging Ron for his own good to keep the World Heavyweight Championship on his mind and feuds off of it. You see it takes too much energy too much strength. All of your all of your intelligence to hold on to a world title Ron Simmons doesn't have that much intelligence to begin with. So what is he doing in broiled in feuds? What's he doing signing matches for the clash of the champions in a thunder cage? What's he doing signing for falls killing anywhere contests against myself in different partners? I've always maintained that the World Heavyweight Championship should be number one. Ron Simmons made his ego number one and he paid the price. It could have been van Vader, it could have been Rick rude for that matter. It could have been Jack, but somewhere along the line, Simmons concentration was going to lapse. And it did, and he paid the price. How do you evaluate big van Vader as the world's champion? How do you evaluate him as a competitor? I think he's unstoppable. But is he unbeatable? I don't know. People are going out there, and this is another problem I wish that some competitors like sting like Simmons would realize that winning the heavyweight belt is first and not their ego. Stings out there trying to prove to the people that he's the people's champion. That's fine because he's earned that title. But he's not the world champion because until he realizes that the idea is to put van Vader down one, two, three, and not to show everybody that he can stand toe to toe and trade punches and take all the blows in the world. It's going to be a long time before sting regains that championship. I think as long as Vader keeps that keeps his edge, keeps that psychological intimidation factor that that belt's going to be around his waist or over his shoulder for as long as he wants to keep it there. M Milwaukee on Wednesday, January 13th, you'll be wrestling Eric watts, the young rookie, the son of WCW, vice president cowboy, Bill watts, in a bounty match. What is obviously the motivation here as you've already alluded to is to collect some money in this situation. Actually, the motivation is poetic justice. You know what I mean by that? No. It means that Bill watts is running off his mouth from WCW magazine about how wrestlers should approach their careers and the business like manner, that he doesn't feel that WCW should have to pay wrestlers when they get hurt in the line of duty because we're businessmen. We should have our own insurance. Well, Jim, I called up to see about disability insurance. You know what they told me, they laughed in my face to get on the wrestling show when they hear you saying, don't expect this guy's career to last very much longer. So I'm basically uninsurable. So what I'm going to do to create my financial future to ensure if you will, is I'm going to take that bounty off the head of Iraq watts. I'm going to stick it in my pocket and when cowboy Bill goes to visit his little son in the hospital and he says, why, why, why? He just has to look at his own self in the mirror and realize that if he'd taken care of me a little bit, maybe I would have taken care of his son, but that's not going to happen. We'll be talking more about the clash of the champions that you can see live on TBS live as it happens to and one half hour special in prime time on Wednesday night, January 13th, 8 o'clock Eastern Time, 8 O 5 eastern 7 O 5, central time, let's go to the telephones, get a quick call, Tori, you're on wrestling with Jim Ross and cactus Jack. Yes. Hello, you're on the air. Okay, Dory, how you doing? I've been found for

"If you name a guy that wrestle with some of the most interesting guys that you had. Let's see. I would say somebody guys, it's crazy. You think the guys that may be the coolest guy to sit down and have dinner with or with the greatest promo guys in the world, you think, and these guys are going to be great for dinner. And then you have dinner with them and they're just, I don't know, either don't want to talk about certain things that went on or they just don't really open up to you. And they're kind of boring. And then guys that you think, he wasn't really good on the mic, you know, Ken patera. I mean, he was a great wrestler, but was he really that charismatic? The guy just blows you away and it's nonstop. Ron Garvin who I was on Garvin. I like the Garvin stomp, but I mean, he didn't blow me away with his mic work as a wrestler. Pretty boring actually. He was the greatest dinner of all time. This guy's stories were amazing. But we've had, I mean, you name a guy from the every member of the four horsemen to WWF old school guys from Jim managers like Jimmy Hart. I've had wrestlers like bob backlund, Terry funk spin down, old school, Florida guys like Steve kern, Ted dibiase, he's been down twice. I'd stay enhanced and come down with Ted dibiase a second time to tell all the japs. Just amazing. Ricky steam, but we brought him down twice because he was such a nice guy. And the stories were great. And then you get guys like, you know, mid south, you mentioned that Terra toy, I love it. Come on. Everybody can get from mid south, I bring. Everybody from world class, I could bring because it was such a cool territory. I brought Mark Lorentz, who was the ringing outer at world class. He had no charisma one O one. Zero 11. He's a preacher now, I mean, but I'm saying you can see this stuff on YouTube if you type in 1980 something meant something. You'll see them ring announcer and they'll have some wrestler tell the ring announcer, hey, I want this match to stand there and go. It's not my job. Go talk to grizzly Smith. Next match, folks. Just totally ignore. Thank God anybody who was there though, I would have him down. Anybody who had a Eddie Mansfield. I mean, you know what he managed from the story of the first expose a business that was going to kill him for exposing the business. I want to hear his stories, you know, come on down. For those who don't know, pro wrestling used to be run, like the mob in a way. You know what I mean? The NWA was the mob for the and when Mansfield came out, people were thinking like, oh, let's get him killed. We're very, very strict with kayfabe. Obviously, to the point where. And this is a great story. When we had that street fight, it was in Minneapolis. It was the inner circle versus Dan's team. And either page and sky. And we had baron von raschke in the crowd. I love the baron. He was one of the first guys ever met as a fan. Google felt Google, everybody we say, trust me, learn this thing. So he, the spot was, he was going to put the claw onto Ethan page. And the claw was Barron's finishing, put it on your face, and so but he was not breaking kayfabe for anything. He was with his daughter and he was like, don't tell her she doesn't know. I'm like, she's 50 years old. I think she's probably figuring out. And he tells Ethan he goes, you know, I'm going to put this on you, and it might pass out. It's a really, really, really, it's a claw. It can knock you out. And then as soon as his daughter turns around, he goes, I'm just kidding. I'm really light. But in front of his daughter, he was not this is a real claw. Daughter, he's going to get knocked out. I'm just kidding. I'm really light. What she rolling her eyes the whole time. Oh, dad. He still has never told me that wrestling is a show. He will refuse to ever say that. Yeah, we had bearing down for dinner. He was super cool, but and you hear about certain stories and wrestling certain moments that everybody knows that happens summer really great and some are horrible. But then you bring the guys down and hear their versions of the story. Bruiser Brody's death in Puerto Rico. You know, I've had down both the young Bloods who were in the locker room at the time, had Tony Atlas down who was in the locker room at the time Abdullah the butcher was there. Dutch mantel was booking, we've had him down for dinner, and you hear all the versions of what happened and it's like, it's kind of like that game where somebody whispers to him. By the time he gets back, it's telephone. You know, and it's like, so what were some of the things that they said about bruiser? Obviously Bruce lebrun was murdered in Puerto Rico in the shower. But no one really knows for sure what happened. Tony Atlas thinks they killed him in the hospital. You know, he says when he handed him over, he was alive. And you hear different everybody at a different reason for why they did it. Bruiser was taken over the promotion, bruiser was hard to work with. He was beaten guys up. He refused to do jobs for anybody. They owed him money and they didn't want to pay him. Who knows, right? But everybody had a different story of what happened.

"Whole pay per view was that Logan Paul ricochet jumping on opposite ends of the rope flying into each other. I thought that was incredible. I showed a bunch of people who don't even watch wrestling. I'm like, you know, I think it's nonsense and a huge UFC guys, obviously. Brain breaking and stuff. But I was like, hey, this had to hurt, right? They're like, oh yeah, that's crazy. Not a lot of people would try that. How'd they get the timing down? Perfectly. It was really great. I always end up burdened for omos. I just feel like every time I'm like, this is the year. He's the new Andre, the giant. They just haven't really figured it out yet. And then he always blows it. He's become the new Tony Atlas. He's right behind embiid for NBA MVP. I think he's flipped like this plus 6 50. Didn't he play at southern Florida or something? Really? Yeah, it was like a center of USF. Jesus. All right. Anything else before we go? Yeah.

Just wasn't meant to be. Patrick. Joseph acai, right? You a check. And then the wife takes it goes to France. I think that's how it has to be. Do you think in this social media era, it's harder to get mad at people than it used to be? In the old days. But now it's like, with Twitter and stuff, the person might see it, and you have to be like super careful what you say. Or do you think it's me? You think it's meaner? Of course it's mayor. If you think people are thinking before they tweet, no, it's terrible. I was thinking about Scott role in this week, and of course I don't think he should go to the Hall of Fame, but I was like, oh my God. Oh, there's poor son of a bitch. All he did was play very, very good baseball. His whole life. And now if he reads on Twitter, like, you'll see like 95% want him to die. So it's bad. Like a nice thing where he showed his family and they collapsed in his arms and tears. Why is it all off to be negative? I mean, it is the Hall of Fame. I know. I feel as I've said a million times. For me, the Hall of Fame is either like you broke some sort of, you had some sort of achievement. Like you had 300 wins, or you had 3000 hits, something like that. Or when you're in town, I wanted to go see you. Yeah. And if it wasn't one of

"News being fake and all that stuff. But when you work at news places, you realize like how dumb a lot of the people who work in those are like all those guys in the people we worked with, they were idiots. Like most of them. Even when I worked at ABC News in Manhattan, like the people I worked with, they weren't that bright. You grow up. I grew up in wooburn. And I used to think like, you know, I didn't know anybody in TV, my parents were from Italy. Like, I used to be like, I don't know anything about TV. I had no idea. But when you get to that level, you expect a certain, you know, the level of excellence. But you don't get it. The cream of the crop. I remember I got an internship at the Boston Herald and I was like, wow, these people are gonna be so smart. And I show up and there was like a chain gang of like the guys that was just like a bunch of angry jerks, normal people. With talents. And then in the newsroom, even at ABC News, they were just idiots. It was just guys from The Bronx who were just dumb. I was so thankful that Eric was there because I was working with those people and expecting them to put together the show that I had to get out there and do it until Eric came along. I was like, when I knew what he got there, at least he totally got it. Right from the beginning and that it's going to be a feeder system. He feed me stuff that say and it's going to make me look better. You know, and make the show better. What happened with you, I don't mean to put you on the spot. That's all right. The stuff I like, I listen to every podcast. The stuff I like. 'cause I don't live in Boston. And I don't get to follow the drama of behind the scenes with the radio, you know, what happened with you at WEEI. Are you allowed to? Sure, I've shit all over all. How did you lose that spot? I mean, because the guy, what's his name, mutt? He's terrible. He sucks. Are you God? How did you lose that spot? I mean, I did it for 11 years. And then kirkman came along. He became a poison pill for the whole radio station. Mut was his little lapdog. His little grundle polisher. And he got to the point where he was convincing what could have my job. He started shitting on me on the radio. You know, I made enemies with minahan. And three weeks after I headed out with minute hand in the hallway, I said something about how you say, you know, you're an asshole, nobody likes you. And he said, I'm pretty sure my kids like me, and I said, give them time. And he hated me for that. And the next day he started shitting on me on the air. And then three weeks later, I was fired. Jesus, 'cause he had a little bit of some ratings in the morning and some power. But that was the end of my run there. You know, it's a small time thing. And I had a good run. I had 11 years there, and much screwed me. And so did admit to him, but that happens in radio. I never understood though, but like when you listen to that what was the shift is what? 7 to 11 something like 6 to ten. There used to be before you, it was Ted sarandis. Yes. Right. Now he was terrible. What? What is it that allows somebody like that longevity in that role? Okay, 'cause he adds nothing to surrender. Mutt adds nothing in that role. Like, what is it that what is the appeal in this market of, I never understood that. I grew up here. Yeah. And I spent 29 years here as a rabid sports fan. I know as much about sports as anybody else. Right. From woburn, I'm not some like, you know, I get it. I worked in sport, I get it. Ted sarandis is terrible or was. I think a lot of times in that slide. They just didn't want to make changes because the person was making a little bit a little enough money that they didn't, it didn't bother them. And back then, it was only one sports station. So the ratings were pretty good for anybody in that slot. That's what I mean though, but you could always do better. You could pay someone less and get a better product. You want to hear great Ted story? Yeah. I did a guest spot on his show when I was working at neck and as a matter of fact. And I went to his show at night and I sat there. And we were talking about something. And he's using his thumb. He's picking his nose. And talking to me, while he's talking to me he's picking his nose with his thumb and rolling them up and putting the boogers on a newspaper that was sitting in front of him. We did a half an hour segment. He must have had 6 boogers on there that he had rolled out of his nose and rolled up. And then I said, well, I want to do with those boogers. So the break happens, they go to a commercial. He picks up the newspaper, walks over to the garbage can, caps it into the garbage can so that he can put the newspaper back down there again. Use it for the next 6 boogers. Whatever. That would show prep. A teddy. Anyway, but you and I were starting in 92, right? And so here's some highlights. I want you to comment on some of these really weird highlights. And there's a lot of them of weird things that happen. Do you remember the drunk midget wrestler from Maine? Who because we brought in all kinds. We had fat karaoke singers. I mean, we brought in anybody, really, literally anybody who would do the show. We brought them in. Do you remember the midget wrestler who was drunk? Who could twist his legs backwards and walk? Walk forwards, but with his feet turned behind him and he was red faced little redneck and was the night we had Tony Atlas on. Do you remember that? I remember Tony Atlas and I was a huge arms. Yeah, I remember Tony Atlas. Yeah, I don't remember the little person. Well, maybe this will refresh your memory. The little midget was about two foot three. We put them up on the desk in front of Tony Atlas, who was our guest, and, you know, Tony Atlas a huge gigantic guns on this guy, nice guy. The guy walks over in front of him and then he starts giving him shit and Tony Atlas is like saying, why don't you sit down and shut up? The guy says, why don't you go back and pick cotton? Oh. Do you remember that? And then they show my face, it's horrified. They show me, I'm like, and I thought Tony Atlas was gonna just squish this guy for the racist comment. He didn't. He just, he shrugged it off. But I'm thinking, you can't say that. This is the 90s, right? But he's walking across the desk. On top of the desk, we get people like that in old. You don't remember them? A barely. And they may have, I may have blacked that one out. I mean, 'cause that was Tony Atlas. Yeah, yeah, that's brutal. And the guy was from Maine. But he said he had the accent. You know, why don't you go pick Antonio just left? He didn't care about it. We had some bad guess. We had The Rock, though. We had The Rock before he was famous. Before he was famous, rocky Malik might have. Robert Vaughn was the man from uncle. Don't talk about the man from uncle. Is this the story? I love this. Great. This was great because I was a huge man from uncle. You were. Larry haber, the camera guy, who sounded like poo bear when you talk. Hello there. I wish I could have a jar of honey. This is exactly how we talk. We had him all set up. You and I set him up to bring out his man from uncle lunchbox and his album for Robert Vaughn to sign. At that time, Robert Vaughn was doing like a big time. Salomon, Mark E Salomon commercials and he was there on behalf of first alert fire detectors. And that's all he wanted to talk about that in this new movie. And all we want to talk about was man from uncle. Ilya. Right. So he comes out first thing he says to us is, now I don't want to talk about the man from Michael. I said, well, you know, in my mind, I'm going, well, it shows planned, it's live. It starts in ten minutes. And guess what? You did show prep. Guess what? So he comes out. First thing I say to him is so how's Elia? He looks at me with this look like, didn't I just tell you not to talk? He says, David McCallum is fine, and he indulged the question. And then here comes Larry haber with his fucking lunchbox. Hi, mister Voight. Can you sign this for me? So we're dying now, 'cause I know Robert von has never going to come back again. He's in town for an autograph show, right? Something like that? Yeah. So he we get up, we leave the interview. And we did the obligatory picture with.

Wwe never had ever had leaving now. Just the way. He's grown his character. In a w and like he's just a dozen roads as one of the most underground wrestlers of all time. Okay first thing. I want to say about wwe's list. I have argument that about half. The groups on here are not tag teams. There are trios their quasi even like the undisputed era is twenty how you gonna have a faction as a tag team exactly my point as well. The be fair. The undisputed irritate chance was always usually bobby fish in colorado. Well robert. nwa were the tag belts put on me. Many briars and the nwa always gala. rally of. bobby's but your number one is the new day who every member of that group. Every interracial now held the title and i. I'm sorry i love the new day and is far as like this era. Yes one of the greatest tag teams probably is but i don't really see them as a tag team. They're more attacking now than they've ever been. I'll i'll put a new day number. I just don't get it. i mean i. I noticed that this and they don't favor them get me wrong to put them over. But i will put other teams before the us to be fucking new days. The scientist happened right and not. The top. Five are even involved in wr- end. Wwe anymore so they're not gonna put them on a rundown the top twenty. Because i'm not going to run the whole list but top twenty undisputed era rocky johnson tony atlas professor toro tanaka and mr fuji steiner brothers. The rockets are connection the wild samoans. Rockers the mega powers the valiant brothers demolation the british bulldogs brothers of destruction. New age outlaws. The usos legion of doom. The dudley boyz edgy christian. our conversation.

They won the tag titles. it didn't. i did not even five minutes later. They tag team titles away from him and enough the deck is split them up. They really didn't do much much.

Took a shitty gimmick and a gimmick was courgaeous. Fuck now and made it pretty good got themselves over. I think would be dropped the ball on a potential team. I mean you saw tim.

Yeah yeah and they did it in such a short span. That's where i i don't like them. I don't think they're funny. Like the greatest part to me is when they started deal that bianca bel air. That didn't ever really honestly. I think maternity fucking very athletic but other than that like they're not they're not good deal. St street profits to private party or the same thing and to me. I'd rather have private party. And i'm not a big fan of theirs right now so Okay moving past this list. Because the more i look at it the more frustrated i get with it is stone cold. A aaa johnny.

He's going to be out for a few months. Did anybody catch bully. Ray's comments for busted open this week to chelsea. That didn't he. Made comments about eddie kingston promo after. Yeah because cates did bay. Wwe comments win. Rarely do i necessarily agree. But i do agree with this. Kingston had no reason to make those comments. He's never been employed for wwe. It wasn't a good look for him for someone who i. I think every wrestling paper right now. Say he's one of the best pro artists. There is his What are their problems with. It was too was that he just made the comments a week before. Yeah that we don't have to study. What w w that. What we're doing over here.

Let's talk annex. T here exceed you know they did. They did okay for this week and acce- actually all right for this week. Gotta give them a lot of props for their show. We got a new north american champion in bronson read. That was His match against Johnny gargano actually was pretty good. I couldn't help burr. Rude on bronson read i. I like bronson read man. He's he's pretty fucking cool. No no bullshit. I I dick shipman man. I dig it shit. I was actually a really good match up. Nice good back and forth between the two guys Bear with me one second here. I just want to pull up my annex t card here because this one i actually i took it down to down two notes on the phone but i sadly didn't transfer it over to facebook here so i could pull it up so bear with me a second here so i can pull up the card Another thing that kinda stood out to me while. I'm pulling up the card cameron grimes in that whole ted dias he joined. I love that. I love that little spot then let god dialed baby. I kinda figured out why. I really like cameron grimes. Especially right now with everything he's been. Don't he. reminds me a fucking don knotts. Many of you guys are into your old school shows and all that but don knotts Barney pfeiffer on the andy griffith show was also the original nano. He wasn't the originally. Actually he came in after the rope. Irs on three's company. The roper were the originals and then mr forli. Yeah mister fromm. We don knotts. Had played. Mr forli on three's company with the lay john ritter Yeah this is exactly sometimes a lot of times camera. Grimes reminds me. Runs me out a lot of dawn. Nods and and i mean that as a compliment. I don't mean that in a negative way whatsoever man Tony storm taken on zoe stark. Good match good match. I actually preferred their first match but this one it was very complementary to their first wind. Now that we pretty much got ourselves tied one wine econo- feels as though there's gonna be some type of a rubber band match here. So by how tony storm picked up his dub and she really could not celebrate it the way she was meant to celebrate it because her spotlight was essentially stolen from frankie monet. She did this nice whole big old grand entrance in everything. And you've got frigging tony storm and beaten up zoe. Start looking on like what the fuck is your problem. Like rarely does isn't about you really and as we found out frankie monet is gonna be making her debut next week or in ring debut next week. So looking forward to that peop- the dog domain. The dog so far. I hope y'all keeping tabs dog has made more fucking. Wwe appearances then fucking undertaker brock listener. John cena combined within the past two years. Just marinade on that man marinade. One that i mean that seriously. Seriously Yeah the carrying graham stuff Loving that with the million dollar man. I'm loving that stuff. Man before the match that he had with jay lists and i love how that insta feud pre much had came about. Those kind of cool had be w we e. planning all of that together before the bell. Grimes the side. He wants to play a video. That has showcased. Teddy biaz sees embarrassing moments And he thought that this was gonna go over well and have the fans at the cwc arena. You actually laugh and make fun of teddy beyond odd ad but if anything it just made the fans chant for ten db he saw. He wasn't really filling. That is a short match to it. Went about five minutes. Cameron looked as though he kinda had this matching control for the most part but then year to music of ted diaz. And he's totally fucking. Distracted is cameron. Grimes trying to figure out what's going on the man himself in the flesh million man. Tdb elsie stood at the top of the stage ramp. Tonia of what to say tony atlas down by the sect. Tony this oh man tony allies anytime i pig about tony atlas i always think about his god damn foot fetish man the new she will right there and i'll just mind my own business.

Man is the rock flares up there. But for me if you smell what the rock is cooking. That was the main the promo he gave before he fought stone cold. I believe it was wrestlemania. Sixteen i can't find it anywhere. Legendary there that was awesome. That was beyond awesome so him and ric flair see Another great guy on the stick. He wasn't a wrestler. But bobby heenan rate on the stick Let me see who else was awesome macho man of course good on the stake hogan guys but back in those days you had to talk a little bit more or less you. Had you know. Classy freddie blassie home heenan food and beginning ill. he wouldn't get on the stick. But still i mean but you know the guys yet really learn how to do your thing if not put up with the manager but yeah so in iraq always been one of my favorites along with his father and tony atlas tito santana kurt angle mr perfect curt henning. One of my favorite bret hart by favorite. Of course we started getting into the nitty gritty of all time greats. Not only was the rock up there not only was got wrestle. Curt henning mr perfect. Absolutely perfect up there but Also this man who has flown under the radar. Recently just in the last couple of years was finally pulled into the wwe hall of fame should have been so much sooner but one of the greatest heels of my time watching rustling in his heyday in. Also one of my favorite promos. What i'd like to have right now. There's for all you fat out of shape minnesota meat heads. Keep the noise while. I take my robe. Aw show the lady's new intercontinental champion and the sexiest man. On god's green earth peds. We agree with what i like to have right now. Cut them music. What i wanna do right now is for all you. Fat sloppy podcasting pinheads. The keep the noise down as i talk about my favorite wrestlers as show you what a real wrestling fan is all about. Hit the music. Of course you're talking about that now shape. I would be part of that group. So i can't go any further with that ravishing rick rude when he died. I had no idea. Now hinder. I wasn't in las vegas at the time but i didn't know that he was out here. Henderson died in ninety nine but ravishing rick rude. What are the few guys mr any. What are the few guys. I never so out of character. now now. it's a lot different because of the expansion of what those guys can do. And you have the internet and some of the other ways for you to improve your brand and make your money that you know plus the curtain but was drawn back in terms of what they do. Now it's entertainment and you know wrestling a talked about differently. Now people talk about story lines and people are talking about. You know. I like this guy better as a face or heel and all those type of things when rick rude was still doing the thing you know there was still the ambiguous of where yeah we sorta ten realize that it's fake but you know they're still that we've never seen this guy out of character in review. Don't see him out of character. You kind of go on the assumption that he's more of his character again You know you probably think so. But i never saw recruiter character. He was a family. Man always wore his ring down to the app to it. Matches you know son died in a motorcycle accident a few years ago out there in georgia you know no mention of his wife and his kids but devoted family man and all those types of things but you never know that for a guy who won that angle that he had with jake the snake roberts and his wife and the fact that he would you know give these long kisses to any of the females in the audience. So you never know that this guy for real They dedicate a family man husband and father but that was recruit one of my all time favorites. That botticelli had interesting kids. Believe me genetics. Good enough for you to do that for you to look like that naturally or without killing yourself. So yeah this but ravishing recruit so. Those are my favorites. So as i leave today as i end the podcast today first of all i want to thank you very much for sticking around so nice. Hope that all you guys hope. Everybody's listening to the podcast will do what they need to do to make yourself make everybody else to make anybody you come in contact with a better person. It's hard too hard. Just be yourself be strong. Be cognizant of what the round and do the best that you care to Bring unity bring peace. To end discrimination to end oppression all of those types of things. So if you do that. I think that You know you'll be okay when your time comes. So all of that being said i want to end with without question. One of the most influential.

"So there you go kofi kingston. Now i was extremely upset that kofi kingston loss to uproxx rock about four seconds for the introduction of smackdown will it went over to fox. I was like you gotta be fucking kidding me. You're gonna treat my man like that but you know what are you gonna do. It was less mary. It was lessner it was leading her. So yeah man. That is the long line of black heavy weight or champions in the. Wwe the wwf. So congratulations once again. I think is fantastic and means something for a guy who's watch wrestling over four decades a great. I loved it. A guy who grew up loving tony atlas in rocky johnson dwayne johnson. Kid how am i. Yeah so you know those are guys. Those are my guys so you know. I think it's absolutely fantastic so Looking forward a little bit. I don't know if i'm gonna watch it this year. And i i dunno i. They're gonna have to do a few more things for me to really get excited about dumb wrestlemainia got bobby lashley. Defending the wwe championship against drew. Mcintyre should be interesting. Sasha banks defending the women's smackdown women's championship against bianca belair less to be interesting bianca. Bel air by the way is a superstar in the making this woman now way. She's gorgeous and me she tracked. She can wrestle. she's athletic. She's on a might. She's got charisma. she's got personality. She's a superstar. She's a superstar in the making. Let's hope they don't screw this up with her. But the match between her and sasha banks is gonna be awesome roman reigns defending the universal championship against edge. I absolutely positively love. Roman reigns is character. Love it and i like the fact. I've heard him on the The interview a little while ago and the the thing was like man you know. Why didn't you change. You turned heel before because you were getting booed and this that and the other and he was like you know. That wasn't the right time for me to do that. You know i wasn't ready for it. I wasn't prepared for it. I wasn't experiencing afford 'em the fact that you know you pull a little swerve into the he'll change because everybody it's easy to sit there and say well that's the reason why he's turning heel because of the booze and that's that's the ninety two mile per fastball straight. Down the middle to a home run hitter. Let's put a little swerve into it. For the reason why i turned heels and it's also doing a great job. Look he's lost weight and cut up. Cut himself up a little bit but he's the best thing going right now. Love the fact that lashley won the championship. But the best thing going right now as roman reigns and what he's doing in his new character so he should beat edge. Who amazing what. He's doing a forty seven but he hit forty seven so roman reigns should go ahead and defend his championship there. Charlotte flare the feeding or challenging oscar for the raw women's championship. Andrei fiance miss flare. Actually flare earlier shall be say the. I think this is going to be a great match. In terms of the match itself the fact that asked limited in her english preventer becoming the mega she should be the beautiful asian woman great wrestler charlotte flair probably technically the best wrestlers in the women's division. I would also put the me up there in terms of being able to wrestle an entertainment value but It's gonna be a great match. I think flare is going to win. Don't no she's gonna be coming healer. Not so glad there was another there was another deal whereas like raw just screwing things up beyond the description. The whole Rick flair impregnated mesa lee evans made no sense ridiculous. What exactly now is charlotte. Flair was his whole program with the father and the scrapped. That immediately as soon as for real lacy evans is really pregnant. So obviously the angle had to end with that but it was just another example of ww raw coming off the rails in terms of love. You really want me to watch the shit you realize. I'm over fifteen right so that should be a pretty good match oscar in charlotte flare. Possibility is shane. Mcmahon is braun strowman. We still have to tie up the loose ends of the fiend vs randy orton. Also going be interested to see what plans they have a big e rollins and carmella cicero. Daniel bryan aj styles to receive possibly brock listener. I dunno i dunno but get this give prevents special dedicating their vide- mac. Mummy take a look at the current champions. Bobby lashley roman reigns biggie at the intercontinental champion. Saas banks smackdown jab oscar. W chip the hurt business. Celtic cedric alexander and shelton. Benjamin are the raw tire team championship. chip are champions. There i like the fact that they have a lot of minorities. I love the fact that they have a lot of minorities awesome screen and all of those seem correct. One's getting a free pass here. No one is getting a You know You know participation trophy. i mean. this isn't a missile. Were bobby lashley whereas can like you. Are a transition champing. Not that way roman reigns. Stop that way. I don't think what bobby lashley again. As i mentioned before even as lashley loses he's going to be losing to a guy in drew mcintyre whose beyond legit and i think that lastly is going to be a have been guide for the foreseeable future at forty four lashley finally getting the run that he deserved so win or lose one of the major players in this billion dollar business known as the wwf or wwe. Love the fact that we see folks of color being prominent players regardless of what the stature is but the fact that you know lashley champion black man. Cedric alexander shelton benjamin taking champion black man. Whoever's going to win between saucy banks m bianca belair black woman holding down the championship. Belt ask even if she doesn't lose the fact that she's been multiple times champ and asian woman for the For the Women's champ over in raw fantastic fantastic. That's the way it should be in terms of giving everybody a chance and up. You know the bigger rain rainbow the more diverse the rainbow the more diverse defense. You're going to have believe me rolling stinking. The numbers might be down as far viewership rating for all it. Because the bobby lashley and it because of mvp. It becomes something. Benjamin and eight because of cedric alexander. So because of keith. Lee tell you that much. So don't know there. We go with that so.

"Again. Courtesy of the wwe. Thank you very much. The call was made by the legendary. Great jim ross. Wanna call what a call what a call solely for some might be the best ever. Jim ross for me ma'am good old. Jr the call. What a call the love. The first time a black man or one eighty a wrestling championship belt. The second one was booker. T. five times five times five times. He was the second heavyweight champion. Say the first up you know. They say mark henry but mark henry. Did he win this championship belt on whether you were trying to east w with tony atlas coming back as fine and everything but for me. While i'm giving matt respect for mark henry for what he did for what the. Wwe putting him through the creative all the creative writer mcmahon put him through with some really disgusting terrible ankles he was having a love affair with the great move when she was like ninety years old and showed vignettes them in bed together g. so they put mark henry through a whole lot of shit so his introduction him being pulling. Wwe was well Well deserved even though it was an argument that possibly he didn't live up the all the all the expectations. That mcmahon had forum when he came in to the company at the quote unquote world's strongest band interim suppled when they look. You know what i gather there. I didn't take it as seriously as i should. So you know some of that. Shit that happened to me was because of my attitude brought a lot of that on myself but you know i think hickory had a great run mark henry especially near the end of his career when he was the monster. He'll i think he did an awesome job. The promo he gave in the ring with john asena where he was talking about. I'm going to retire at the end of the other fooled. Everybody cloud with all your other. Mark henry and seasonable mark henry and then henry closed line been beat up seen dacha. That was a great promo. That was probably the best promo at marquette we ever had but tony atlas finally started to turn his career around when he became his manager in e c w and Yeah so mark henry Deserve to be in a wwe hall of fame. And i recognized him as being a champion and wwe but for my time in terms of that. My most fevers pitch of being a wrestling fan was again. The ron simmons winning the championship belt in nineteen ninety two and a court booker. t. bidding ramos zero the when wwe wwf championship in one thousand. Nine hundred ninety four of course with the help of shovel guerrero guerrero and Basically basically it was team booker at the time and it was like well. It have been better for booker t to win the championship belt. After off of someone a little bit of a higher stature than ramos stereo maybe would have been nice if trump michaels was wrestling at the time. But now people don't want to offer bret hart but hart might have been in the wcw. But i'm thinking someone of much of a little higher regard but ray beating ray was a cool but this.

I'm quite sure it would have been a lot longer. The injury or kramer's in the michelle to four years in the in others who took that baller man with it would have gotten that opportunity so you know. Twenty tori was tough. My biggest law for myself personally john thompson. The coach georgetown hoyas that reason. Why am reason why that majority you so much. John thompson won a championship in nineteen eighty-four the say he was the first black coast to get the opportunity to really chase the dream of winning an ncaa championship. There were others qualified. Just as qualified as coach thomson to win a championship they just weren't afforded the opportunity. The john mclaughlin's of the world in those coaches in the each bcu schools. They were just as qualified as john thompson. John which qualify the john thompson nolan. Richardson who later won a championship with arkansas talked to coaching down at texas el paso and then tulsa given the opportunity to vie for a championship because of the color of his skin some of the opportunities. He might have had to move to a school with better resources. Better pedigree to get him in a position to win a championship with john thompson. Became the coach of the georgetown. Hoyas georgetown when he came to the program. This wasn't kentucky. This wasn't indiana. This wasn't a blueblood when he came to georgetown with three and twenty seven. When john thompson came and john thompson was like you know what and this lily white private school. Georgetown university out there on the street off of him street in the north west side of town.

How did they ever lose looking at the two of them but that was the thing that wwe was Outta Day ever liberty racists back then do what they know but they used to do this thing? Where like Tony Atlas would always almost win the title and then it was like He wasn't so dumb he would have won the title like it was really fun. Oh yeah they would say that it was always like get distracted by captain La Banda or Freddie Blassie made he just. He couldn't play the mental game. That's why he could win. You also couldn't have two African American and wrestlers at the top of a card like SD Jones. Whatever his fate mistake early in the navy is going to be a jobber but he could never rise to the level of rocky? Couldn't and have more than two right right there even superfly Snuka who the most popular guy for like a year before Hogan And now they could never give him the title either. Bob Beco with the fucking crew cut from Minnesota from Harvard stuff Iraqi Johnson best drop kicks of that era. Yeah yeah the physicality everyone else do the drop kicks and they would hit somebody like kinda lower sternum rocky Johnson would like go for the you know he'd drop kick the deeds head way. Wave yet you in the neck. He'd do the foot shuffle. He did a nice sunset flip he did it all. He was one of those born too soon guys because I think he was so athletic. the Sport didn't start to get aerial until SNOOKA enrich ricky steamboat mid eighties and guys started jumping off the top rope. All that stuff. He would have done all that but nobody did. Did that. In the seventies right to deal older than Tony Atlas to
