Great, great podcast!!
I highly recommend this podcast to any fan of professional wrestling. These guys are funny, and they pick a wide variety of old wrestling shows to review. They love wrestling but don't take it too seriously, and always make me laugh. I highly recommend the 1980 Shea Stadium show and the most recent "Mulkey-mania" show especially. You can learn a little wrestling history and have a fun time doing it. Sometimes the wrestling they review is awesome, and sometimes it's awful, but "Flair Chop" is always entertaining regardless. Keep up the great work guys, and thanks for the free shows!!!
Dig It Brother!
Hook the leg with this podcast! If you remember Nacho Barrera, Iron Mike Sharpe and The Mulkeys, than you have a new home (or should be put in one). They break down the memories in a refreshing but respectful manner. May this podcast continue until Stanley Blackburn is able to finally put together the AWA Championship Tournament (oh the logistic horror involved)...
The Old School Wrestling podcast is always worth a listen. I used to listen to it while driving home from work, but I recently found a better use for it. I was listening to it through my rather great stereo system when my wife walked in the room. She hates wrestling and begged me to turn off the Old School Wrestling podcast. She said she would do anything. Being an adult man with adult needs, I told her to make me a sandwich. It was delicious. So, if you ever want a sandwich, listen to the Old School Wrestling podcast.
