Best of Continental - help sought from the experts

10 October 2017 - 03:48 PM

An upcoming episode of my podcast is going to introduce Continental Championship Wrestling from the late 70's to its end (I guess the Fuller years).   I don't know much about this territory so I'm going to have to do tons of reading, but in the meantime, if you had to pick, say 70-80 minutes of footage, what would you guys suggest?  Doesn't have to be the best of the best, but I do want to go for a sampler of big angles, a good match, famous angles and promos, etc.

 

Any help is very much appreciated!


Wrestling with a Generation Gap 15 - Nick Bockwinkel part 1 and Final Deletion part 3

30 September 2017 - 01:38 PM

First off a special thank to all the PWO members who came up with this playlist for me!  

 

Wrestling with a Generation Gap begins a two part look at one of the greatest, but most obscure to modern fans, Nick Bockwinkel! We take a look at the Bock as he does battle with Verne Gagne, Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant, Wahoo McDaniel, Matt Murphy and teams with Ray Stevens to face the High Flyers. We also get some legendary promos and many appearances from the greatest manager of all time, the late Bobby Heenan. Rob shows a black and white match he knows literally nothing about, we try to figure out why the AWA title changed hands so many times in the 60's but almost never in the 70's (anyone know?) Dave and Nick see Ron Trongard as an old school Joey Styles, the underrated nature of Greg Gagne, Vernge Gagne, appreciation and controversy, why modern fans think today's wrestlers have shorter careers, Nick's great and varied promos, Greg Valentine's focus on attacking Native American's legs, Wahoo as the Terminator, a discussion on the worst of all time as we really digress on the last match.

Wrestling with a Generation Gap Special 1 - WWE Unreleased DVD Commentary

16 September 2017 - 08:52 PM

Join us for a VERY special episode of Wrestling with a Generation Gap. Our first special in fact! If, like us, you recently purchased WWE's Unreleased Matches 1986-1995 collection, you might have been saddened (if not shocked) to find out there was no commentary for any of the matches. Fear not! For Dave, Nick and Rob have provided a running chat to sync with Disc 1. All of us are watching this stuff for the first time. Learn all about the many talents involved and Nick's deep rooted hatred of Hulkamania is finally explained. Dave tells more great one liners and I try to explain how main even dark matches worked and how awesome it is to finally have all this stuff released for the first time. We cover the slow decline of Andre, Rob discusses the best and worst LJN wrestlers, gushing over the insane selling of Marty Jannetty, the worst kayfabe nights of Demolition's WWF run, good debuts for Owen, Warrior, Dusty, The Powers of Pain and Bryan Adams, a bad debut for Earthquake and a whole lot more! Feedback is always welcome.
