    The Arn Anderson podcast

    Today's episode is about his neck injuries and retirement, including the NWO parody of his retirement speech and all of the fallout from that.

    Wrestler=Actor

    Edi Patterson on HBO's The Righteous Gemstones would be a perfect model for a Sherri/Sunny-type female valet character today.

    Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard

    I think my favorite quote from the show's entirety (from what I have heard at least) is when talking about how brave TNA was for going head-to-head on Monday nights, that "he respects the balls". It's actually him repeating what Conrad says first, but the exchange is like something out of Seinfeld.

    It's on Stitcher

    The Arn Anderson podcast

    Schiovane had a good quote about it on his show, saying that for it to be successful we need to hear Marty Lunde come through. That's true of any podcast, of at least this kind where there isn't guest at all, that it's important that you hear the real person instead of a carefully constructed persona be it through the media or in this case a line of work where character is so important, even if it's not entirely true to the person playing it. I'm way behind on Conrad's stuff, haven't listened to Bruce's show since spring basically and only listened to a few that he did with JR, but will probably jump back in soon. Echoing Tony's sentiment I hope it is successful but I hope there is more out of Arn here than I saw in his RF shoot, where he goes between being pretty forthright and also sticking to kayfabe to a degree as well.

    The Steve Austin Show

    His recent interview with Big Show is pretty good, talking a lot about him growing up and his new Netflix show.

    Hearing good things on Twitter about the Yokozuna episode

    Sean Oliver's Kayfabe Podcast

    Enjoyed the Conrad interview. For someone who probes the minds of a few professional bullshitters for a living, he seems to be as straight-forward and honest of himself as they may seem crooked. I also listened to Oliver's intro and while I understand his concerns about the podcast format, I think his conversational style will translate well for him if he keeps at it.

    Who is more important for pro wrestling history?

    The crossover from winning an Olympic gold medal (with a broken freakin' neck) It's definitely a tough choice given all of what Jericho has done, but I have always found Angle more compelling to watch. Not just in the ring but in those skits. He pulled off looking like a clown without softening his image.

    WWE Hidden Gems

    I remember taping that one. The match that stuck out for me was seeing the Thunderdome match from Halloween Havoc 89.

    Who is more important for pro wrestling history?

    Kurt Angle, for the crossover factor. Bret Hart, mainly for Montreal but also influencing so many workers who came after him. Big Show, for being able to last as long as he has and to have kept himself in good shape compared to Andre and other big men who broke down physically later in their careers. Scott Hall, for his first Nitro segment and being one of the guys who changed how the money game was played.

    WWF TV Shows 1970s to early 1990s (pre-Raw)

    Larry Zbyszko told a story that one of Bruno's fans was Frank Sinatra's driver, who was very mobbed up apparently.
