The wrestling world lost a true legend this past week with the passing of Hall Of Famer Bobby “The Brain” Heenan. Join Seth and Crazy Train as they pay tribute to the man who is widely considered the greatest managers of all time. They cover the four major promotions Heenan worked for: WWA, AWA, WWF, and WCW. There are a few fun stories with each one, including a WWA story involving a fan altercation with Bobby in which The Blackjacks got involved. You may not hear this story anywhere else.
This is a must listen for any fan of Heenan, and especially any fan of old school pro wrestling.
This week’s episode looks at The Gold Dust Trio, Billy Sandow, Ed “Strangler” Lewis, and Joseph “Toots” Mondt. These men are widely credited with what became the modern style of professional wrestling. Hear how the trio came to be, and how their innovative approach to treating wrestling as a business helped change the face of wrestling forever. Seth and Crazy Train talk the careers of all three men, and the roles they played during this time. This is must hear material for fans of early 20th Century wrestling.
The inaugural episode of Classic Wrestling Memories looks at the first American Professional Wrestling Supershow, Starrcade ’83: A Flare For The Gold. Join Seth and Crazy Train as they discuss the matches and storylines to this historic event. For the final three main event matches, Seth and Train are joined by legendary sports and pro wrestling journalist Mike Mooneyham, formerly of Post and Courier.
