New show for this week to kick off what I am calling a Fortnight of Funk....Terry Funk. Starting with his NWA run from May 1989 (NWA Pro May 20, 1989) before he was advised to tone it down, lest he hurt someone's feelings.

- It is kind of funny that Funk comes in right as Road House is released, but isn't really there to promote the movie or anything (which I am sure was the idea with Batista in 2014)

- Lance Russell is so amazing in the episode with his interplay with Funk and how upset he gets that the Rookie Challenge match is interrupted.

- I was quite hard on the Ron Simmons-Randy Rose match but I didn't enjoy it in the least.

- The Dynamic Dudes video where they eat pizza and shop for skateboards is the kind of unintentional comedy I crave.

Just posted episode #30, a WWF TNT episode from August 16, 1985.

 

I figured that doing a talk show might be difficult given that there isn't much in-ring stuff, but actually it was a refreshing change. Plenty of hilarity with Vince in his Johnny Carson role: Tony Garea talking about sheep in New Zealand, Jim Neidhart predicts wrestling internet culture without knowing what that is, Paul Orndorff gets upset about the bounty leading to a musical mashup, and Terry Funk starts and finishes a barroom brawl.

As I've said time and again, this pod is consistently awesome, and this week Peter has crafted a great tribute to Bobby Heenan
