Classic Wrestling Memories has completed its first year, and we want to thank you the fans for listening and providing your feedback. This episode is devoted to 2017, both in the history of the show, and especially the talent we lost. Join Seth and Crazy Train as they pay tribute to Bobby Heenan, Lance Russell, Chavo Guerrero Sr., Tom Zenk, Ron Bass, Ivan Koloff, and many others.
It was arguably one of the greatest angles in wrestling history… At least for a while. Join Seth and Crazy Train as they discuss the background and formation of WCW’s New World Order.
Hear what inspired the concept, and what laid the groundwork to the creation of the stable. How could the beloved “Training, Prayers, & Vitamins” Hulk Hogan turn evil and join a hideous villain group? And how could he, in real life, be convinced to make what was such a daring move at the time?
What makes this podcast unique is you’ll get the opinion of somebody who was just a fan, and the opinion of a wrestler who was already actively in the business while this was going on.
