Kris Zellner is joined by John McAdam to discuss (W)WWF shows at the Boston Garden from 1976-79. We talk about how John became a wrestling addict in this time period and just how different Boston was from New York & Philadelphia in how feuds were worked and even how the television aired. We run down every card from the period and talk about all the top wrestlers and angles of the era. A damn good, must listen show!!!!

Really enjoyed this. I love to hear first hand accounts of the WWWF from this time and John was great recounting his memories of the roster, angles, etc. Would love to hear a companion piece about MSG or the Spectrum someday if possible

I loved this!  Very cool to hear John's insights on the various guys as they entered and exited the territory.  I agree that a MSG or Spectrum piece would be great too.

To be honest, the two hour podcast time was also a plus.

This was a great podcast.


Everybody should check Rocky Raymond's channel on Youtube, he has some 8mm from the Boston Garden. Highlights are Bruno vs Pat Patterson from 1979.
