    SHOT OF NOSTALGIA #1.29: WCW 1996 | DEC 9th, DEC 16th & DEC 23rd WCW NITRO | HOGAN/PIPER FINAL PUSH

    SHOT OF NOSTALGIA #1.29: WCW 1996 | DEC 9th, DEC 16th & DEC 23rd WCW NITRO | HOGAN/PIPER FINAL PUSH

    In episode 29 ACEFIELD RETRO returns with MIKE BELCASTER to discuss THREE action-packed episodes (we hope). We take on the DEC 9th, DEC 16th AND DEC 23rd MONDAY NITRO as we cruise towards the end of 1996 and bullet towards STARRCADE. We officially have TWO episodes left in our time-traveling journey through this year in WCW & it's been a fun ride. We finally get Hogan & Piper back on screen together & Bischoff is up to his usual games. More CRUISERWEIGHT action and proof that WCW was way ahead of its competitors with in-ring work. Will WCW go out in 1996 on a high note? What will be the result of the United States tournament that we have the culmination of at Starrcade? Will Randy Savage stay with the WCW or head back to TITAN & what will go on with that? ECW ranks itself as the 3rd best promotion by announcing its PPV debut. What are the ramifications of that? We cover the INFAMOUS DDP CHRISTMAS party that saw someone messing with Regal. No one messes with Regal. As usual, we dig into Dave Meltzer’s newsletter as it happened in real-time to bring in CONTEXT and help us travel completely back to 1996 to get an idea of what this event meant to WCW’s drive to overtake WWF in the MONDAY NIGHT WARS. What was the rating like? Is there more drama to unpack? As always, this episode is sure to be an amazing time with the main homie MIKE BELCASTER. Don’t forget to grab your weekly Shot of Nostalgia at 7 PM Eastern to continue FLASHBACK FRIDAY ON THE TAVERN. As always, tip your bartenders & learn from the past!

Really great Pod!

Been listening since they had DVR’ing NXT! From the Flagship to the newest Brace for Impact, they’ve had a plethora of fun and informative shows. The Debate is one of their best additions that has brought many diverse perspectives to the Tavern over the years; many of which have become full-time members and hosts of all the great shows they continue to come up with.
Whether you’re new to wrestling or a lifelong fan, these are the Podcasts for you.

Also, the new format on the Flagship is great, feels natural to start with the story you’re most excited about and move through the all the AEW shows that way instead of going in chronological order. And thanks for the Shout Out!

The Most Well Rounded Pro Wrestling Podcast!

I’ve been listening to the Turnbuckle Tavern for over 2 years and I can honestly say it’s my FAVORITE family of pro wrestling podcasts. They are a true switch up to the norm that is wrestling podcasting. They offer a variety of shows from debates, reviews about shows, news inside and outside of the ring, figure news, and deep dives into nostalgic times in wrestling.

Not only do they deliver amazing pro wrestling content 7 DAYS A WEEK, they also are great human beings. I can honestly say that I’ve never met the majority of the Tavern faithful in person, but I’ve felt like I’ve known them my whole lives. Chad, Snead, Tom, Mike, Ace, J Bone, Young Anthony, Colton, Marco, and even Hoch are all great people who are dedicated to their craft. Also, shout out to my fellow Tavern Townie and yeehaw mark, TYSON!!

Give them a listen if you love professional wrestling!!
