Episode #1

http://placetobenati...view-episode-1/

Pete, Kelly and Johnny are back in action with this all-new podcast devoted to a chronological look at WCCW's World Class TV show, as found on the WWE Network. First up is January 2, 1982. There is a different host and different theme music. "Big Daddy" Bundy is wearing jeans and a rope belt, and Kevin Von Erich is wearing wrestling boots. Yes, this isn't the World Class everyone knows and loves quite yet!
Sit back and enjoy this journey through a bygone era with the boys, it's going to be a blast!

Please pardon my over enthusiasm here. I was just jazzed to do a show with the boys again.

And high.

Episode #2

http://placetobenati...view-episode-2/
 
January 9, 1982
 
Papa Fritz is Here! The master of the Iron Claw invades the commentary booth and poor Gene Goodson wishes he was back doing ads for North Central Ford in Richardson, TX. Tonight's big main event is Kerry Von Erich vs. The Great Kabuki, and in addition to that Pete, Kelly and Johnny talk about Fritz, Bill Irwin, Armand Hussian, Jose Lothario, Killer Tim Brooks and Captain Frank Dusek. Sit back and enjoy another fun episode of World Cast!

Tune in to hear us talk about the most bonkers commentary situation I've ever seen or heard on a pro wrestling show.

For reasons I can't explain, the timing on the PTBN add-drop on EP2 cracked me up. You guys were nerding out over comic book references and we get:

Johnny: Top that, geeks.

 

Kelly: I can't.

 

Pete: I can't either.

 

(beat)

Lord Alfred Hayes: Promotional consideration paid for by the following!

 

Too funny.

Haha...yeah, any time here or in the past when I forget to properly break for ads I try to find a natural moment to insert them. If you thought this was good, wait until the next show for an almost perfect unplanned ad break

Episode #3

http://placetobenati...view-episode-3/

February 6, 1982
 
People complain about the Mae Young Classic having bad commentary. Please. It's nothing compared to the nightmare team of Gene Goodson and Armand Hussian from this episode. This is BAD commentary, folks. Pete, Johnny, and Kelly try to ignore it long enough to analyze the action, which features Richard Blood (not one of the great Richard Blood's, but he's alright), Jose Lothario, Big Daddy Bundy, Bugsy McGraw vs. Al Madril in an American title match, Larry Higgins (?), Tony Torrez (???) and El Negro Assassin (?!?!?!?). Sit back and enjoy another waltz across Texas with the boys!

Ok given how I have already watched this episode of TV, I will have to give this a listen to see how Pete and Johnny react to the commentary. I already know what Kelly thinks. ;)

Episode #4

It's episode 4 and Pete and Johnny are minus one while Kelly enjoys his honeymoon.

The wrestling might not have been a homerun, but the Gene Goodson was on fire. Kerry and Kevin talking rats, and love Letters. Gary Hart as the gold standard. This was a blast to talk about.

Johnny is at his best when the product is at its worst. I feel like him watching early ECW would be podcast gold.

It's so easy and boring to talk about shit that's great. What's fun is delving into the stuff that evolves into the famous shit.

WCCW 10 2/27/82

Kelly is still on his honeymoon so It's Johnny and I having fun.

We start off with some Bobby Heenan stories. Then we shift to the episode. Mark Lowrance replaces Gene Goodson. Still Johnny finds stuff to laugh about. Rempalgo Leon impresses. Gary Hart kills it on his promo . Bundy showing some early badassness. Plus a bunch of other stuff.
