Episode 34 (Johnny's Birthday Bash Bonus!)

 

https://soundcloud.c...y/world-cast-34

 

October 30, 1982 (WCCW 45)

 

*Apologies for echo-y audio at times*

 

The boys get together to talk WCCW on Johnny's birthday and decide to have some fun by watching a really awesome wrestling match for a change! As a bonus they review Ric Flair vs David Von Erich from Fort Worth, 10/11/82. This one is not on the Network but can be found here, the first match on the video

 

After that, it's back to reality. We get...

 

-The Samoan and his snake

-King Kong Bundy on strike

-5 DIFFERENT MASKED WRESTLERS, FOLKS

-Saldi being Saldi, and garbled audio throughout

 

...BUT, we also get the debut of Terry "Bam Bam" Gordy, so things continue to pick up at the top even if most of the roster is uninspiring

 

World Cast: Happy 12th birthday (in 1982) Johnny!

Huge thanks to Pete and Kelly for the best birthday party a guy could have on a Tuesday night. 👍

Thanks, but dedication didn't enter it to it, man. I'm 48 years old. The very idea of going out to celebrate on a Tuesday is ridiculous to me.

Now. If it was my 39th? Shit, Tuesday is Saturday! Whoooo. 😀

Great show as always. Question I’ve always wanted to ask you. Is Ricky Jackson your screen name because you’re a huge fan of the greatest defensive player in New Orleans Saints history or maybe a combination of Ricky Henderson and Reggie Jackson?

Haha...no. I'm actually a long time fan of the Eagles, so it has nothing to do with that. Ricky Jackson was my name from 90s backyard wrestling when I was in high school, which I actually first used as a name in a video I made for a school project in grade 8 where I played an investigative journalist

ok, thanks. That makes more sense since you’re an Eagles fan. Last question. Randall Cunningham or Donovan McNabb?

Tough question. Randall was the reason I became a fan, but Donovan was the qb during my favorite years. I'll go with Donovan because I saw his whole career, whereas I only caught the last 4 or so years of Randall's

Episode 35

 

https://soundcloud.c...y/world-cast-35

 

November 6, 1982 (WCCW 46)

 

One of the joys of wading through the mire is when something great comes out of nowhere, which we get in this episode with a hot angle involving the Freebirds and Bundy/Irwin. Other than that, not much to see here...

 

-Hot newcomer Kabuki getting a big push 18 months into his run

-Kerry Von Erich interviewed by Bill Mercer on "Good Afternoon, Dallas"

-Bugsy totally confused by the wily The Checkmate

-Kevin Von Erich vs Bill Irwin in their mandatory once a month main event

Episode 36

 

https://soundcloud.c...y/world-cast-36

 

November 13, 1982 (WCCW 47)

 

The Freebirds continue to impress both the boys and the fans in 1982, but Dear God, this TV show is in a coma otherwise...

 

-Kabuki AGAIN in a handicap match (at least the Samoan provides some laughs with multiple botches)

-Is Destroyer #1 THE Destroyer...or is Kelly putting way too much thought into this

-THAT match between The Checkmate and Bugsy

-And, the piece de resistance, Fritz finally provides evidence of the bounty on Kerry (but something is a little fishy about the name on the check...)
