PHILADELPHIA (JSC) — I’ve been a fan of professional wrestling since I was 5 years old. 1984. The year before what would become a yearly tradition known as WrestleMania would begin. I was a WWF (now known as WWE) guy to start and as a kid you couldn’t tell me a damn thing about Wrestling. Saturday and Sunday mornings were the time for Hulk Hogan, Macho Man Randy Savage, Jake “The Snake” Roberts, and the Ultimate Warrior. When I got a little older, Saturday nights at 6:05 joined the party when the NWA (eventually known as WCW) came into my life. Suddenly, Ric Flair and the Horsemen, Dusty Rhodes, Magnum TA, and Sting were added to the rotation. In 31 years, I’ve seen damn near everything good and bad about pro wrestling. With WrestleMania 32 coming tomorrow, and me having a brand new podcast, I figured I would do the first of what will hopefully be many shows dedicated to Professional Wrestling. Not “Sports Entertainment.” PRO WRESTLING.
Coming up on this episode JSC Radio, I talk about:
- Who was the first Pro Wrestler I remember
- My thoughts on those who turn up their nose at Pro Wrestling
- What do I consider the best WrestleMania match ever?
- Why I continue to watch despite the state of the business
- I break down the WM32 card
- Wonder aloud why there are 5 other dudes in the IC Title Match
- I try to figure out how to make the idea of Roman Reigns winning the World Title palatable.
I want to thank those of you who continue to support JSC Radio and continue to help this show grow day by day. Feel free to support this show by sharing links and telling others as I continue to build this thing.
Until Next Time, That’s The Way It Is. Saturday, April 2, 2016.
