    Starrcade '85-The Gathering

    Starrcade '85-The Gathering

    During this Thanksgiving week, we go back and take a look and listen to when Thanksgiving night was the biggest night of the year in Pro Wrestling.
    Starrcade '85 was full of memorable moments, but if you think it was because of the end of the Dusty Rhodes/Ric Flair title match, then you miss the point and are only looking for the negative.
    There was so much more:  Magnum T.A. versus Tully Blanchard in an "I Quit" match for the U.S. Title.  Buddy Landel winning the National Title and the Rock and Roll Express topping the Ivan and Nikita Koloff for the World Tag Title.
    There were some other matches that had their moments such as Superstar Billy Graham and the Barbarian in an arm wrestling contest.  Black Bart meeting Ron Bass in a bullrope match and the Midnight Express against Jimmy Valiant and Ron Garvin in drag in a tuxedo street fight.
    A lot to unpack, but a lot of NWA-Jim Crockett Promotions history in the making.

    Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling 11-16-85

    Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling 11-16-85

    It was the build up to Starrcade '85: The Gathering.
    And it's HARD TIMES.
    Yes, the famous interview by the American Dream Dusty Rhodes as he readies to do battle with Ric Flair.
    Also, it's the buildup to Tully Blanchard vs Magnum T.A. and the famous "I Quit Match."
    It's back when the pro wrestling television shows were nothing but an infomercial to get you into the arenas, but damn they were good.

    World Championship Wrestling 11-12-1988

    World Championship Wrestling 11-12-1988

    Back we go to the 80's during the WTBS studio days.  
    Jim Crockett Promotions was in turmoil with their selling to Turner Broadcasting not too far away.  Behind the scenes, apparently the friction between Ric Flair and Dusty Rhodes is at an all time high.
    So, as stories and legend have it, Ric Flair goes out and has a great match with George South just to prove a point.
    But there is much more, including a promo from Jim Cornette directed towards Paul E. Dangerously that is can't miss.  We think you'll agree, it's one of the classic promos of all time.
    It's time to hop in the time machine and take you back to when wrestling on TV looks a whole lot different than what you see today.

    ECW November to Remember 2000

    ECW November to Remember 2000

    It's another venture back into ECW, but this time it's when the promotion is on the down-slide.  Still, there's a lot of good things including:  Jerry Lynn, Justin Credible, Kid Kash, CW Anderson, FBI, Mikey Whipwreck, Yoshihiro Tajiri, Da Baldies, The Sandman, Dawn Marie, Francine and the GREAT Chris Hamrick. Plus Steve Corino gets his well deserved due, his first World Championship.
    Keep an eye out for Angel of Da Baldies suffering some severe burns and for Francine's posterior getting plenty of camera time during the finish of the main event.  
    Also listen for "Tony's Nightmare" and "Tony Does Love Songs."
    Enjoy a "November To Remember" for many reasons.

    WCW Halloween Havoc 1989

    WCW Halloween Havoc 1989

    A lot to unpack in this one as we begin Halloween week of 2020.  
    Four great performers battle in the main event in what was the very first Halloween Havoc ever!  Flair, Funk, Sting and Muta!  How about that for a lineup?  
    All four in a Thunderdome match, a cage with so much decoration that it caught fire (a great Halloween treat)!
    Plus, the Road Warriors, the Midnight Express, the SST, the Steiners, Doom, Tommy Rich (Somebody say something about Halloween???). Lex Luger, the Freebirds, Brian Pillman and more.  
    Enjoy Halloween, WCW style!

    Sting's Debut-WCW 10-17-87

    Sting's Debut-WCW 10-17-87

    We think you are really going to dig this!  October of 1987, Sting makes his debut on TBS and World Championship Wrestling!
    It's easy to see how his character grew from this moment, but it is also great to see how much potential he had from just one match and following interview.
    Just like all TBS studio programs in that era, this show was short on wrestling action but long on great interviews.
    This is one to remember!
