So Episode 11 of my podcast is going to be all about WWC.  Anyone want to make suggestions for what to include in a one hour WWC compilation from the 80's?   I've got it down to about 3.5 hours of stuff, but that's a bit much.  Sadly none of us are fluent enough in Spanish for promos.

 

I definitely want to get as much talent as possible and not just a Carlos Colon comp.   Thanks in advance.

 

Sure, I'll try to narrow some stuff down. Do you have 1-3 matches you definitely want to include? I may suggest some complementary stuff based on that (so as not to go too gimmick match heavy if you already have some that are definites).

I have nothing planned yet.  I'd like Carlos Colon vs. Stan Hansen, either cage or bullrope match

Today Javier Rodriguez uploaded a bunch of stuff to Youtube. 

 

Including how the rivalry between Stan Hansen & Bruiser Brody vs Carlos Colon & Abdullah the Butcher began.

Dave talking about Brody's death the other day reminded me of how there's so many questions that never got (or never will be) answered about it, like why did Jose do it? The only thing that ever gets mentioned was that Brody was often a pain in the ass to do business with but he was always like that, so it's not like it's something to suddenly murder over. Plus Dave mentioned they were often travel buddies up to a few days before the murder. That's some cold shit when you think about it. 

 

How much did Carlos Colon know? Again it seems that the consensus is that Jose was the only one who knew what was going to happen beforehand, but the company went into full coverup mode immediately. I can see giving him a pass for the show that night with the whole "the show must go on" mentality, but it sure seemed like they already decided how things would play out.

 

Was it even worth it? All the covering up, and it ended up killing the business anyway. Not only was it a black eye to the fans, they couldn't pull the level of talent they had before so everything dropped. It's not like 90s AWA levels, but it's kind of sad watching the weekly WWC show in a half filled gym when this is the same promotion that used to draw big crowds to baseball stadiums.

It has been like Christmas seeing this footage pop up. Any new unearthed footage is such a treat. These videos are from August of 84, Hugo mentions on commentary on how he has recently returned from a tour of Japan. A quick check shows he was in Japan through July 31st. Excited to see what else turns up from any decade of Puerto Rico wrestling.
