  1. Wrestling with a Generation Gap, a podcast with video that looks at wrestling old and new from the eyes of 2 generations of fans returns for its' 37th episode (Rob got the number wrong as the original 36 was missing at the time of recording but then found). This time out Dave, Nick and Rob look at Amarillo, with the only footage in Rob's collection from it featuring such stars as Dory Funk Jr., Tito Santana, Ted Dibiase, Stan Lane and a whole lot more. Then we go to today's NWA for a match with an old school flavor as Nick Aldis defends his title against Tim Storm. Feedback is always welcome!

    Good point. I will throw in Rufus R Jones vs. Mr. Pogo for sheer ??????? quality.

    Central States - minor miracle needed

    Can anyone suggest matches/promos and angles for about 45-60 minutes of the best of Bob Geigel's Central States Territory?

    Dory Funk Jr on the Amarillo schedule - help needed

    Yes I ended up finding the same thing in time to record my episode and read edited highlights from it. I guess the guys were going like 90mph in the middle of nowhere so it wasn't as brutal as Mid South. Wondering in the 70's and 80's what territories had the easiest travel? Florida and Portland maybe? Montreal in the summer?

    Dory Funk Jr on the Amarillo schedule - help needed

    That helps yes. Dory did this epic post covering an entire week's loop, towns, mileage, hotels, places to stay and eat, etc but this is good information too, thanks so much!

    Dory Funk Jr on the Amarillo schedule - help needed

    I did try that and you can't get individual territory threads that way. I'd have to know the URL of the actual thread itself which I don't.
  8. So long story short, does anyone remember the article Dory Funk Jr. wrote years back for the kayfabe memories board going over the weekly schedule for Amarillo? I need it for research and the KM board has been down for over a month now. Is it anywhere else, anyone got a copy by any chance? Thanks a million in advance

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

    Absolutely right. If there was a good horror movie or two booked on a UHF station that weekend I'd skip the WWF shows and IIRC Superstars was shown on the New Hampshire ABC affiliate on Sundays. You didn't need to watch both.

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

    One other memory I have of Spotlight, and I'd have to rewatch the 20 or so episodes I have in order to that (gimme a reason Parv) was that we rarely got the top level superstar squashes. If you were watching in say summer of 91 you'd get Kerry Von Erich, Warlord, Power and Glory, Colonel Mustafa and Bushwhackers. Basically the bottom 50% of the Superstars/Challenge squashes. In addition of course you had regional cable networks showing WWF House shows. HBO then MSG Network showing MSG from 73-March of 92, Prism showing Spectrum shows from late 78-early 89, NESN showing Boston Garden shows from the summer of 85-summer of 89, Z-Channel showing a few LA shows in 88-89, some televised Houston, USA showing some Cap Centre shows from 82-85 and a few Meadowlands shows. Then you would have lots of Maple Leaf Garden and a few other random Canadian house shows as well, but I don't know the context of where those were aired other than as random Prime Time matches (and some of the main events in tape trading circle for decades were not shown on Prime Time so they must have aired somewhere else) There's also the WWF's TBS show from Black Saturday on. That did get original content towards the end of its run.

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

    Well since Parv has made his return to PWO, I'll come out of hiding as well with some memories, focusing mostly on how I did or didn't see these shows as a kid growing up in north central MA in the 80's. One point, Bobby left Challenge for some time in 89-90 when he got tired of newly added third man Tony Schiavone who stayed on with Gorilla for a while. I started watching wrestling regularly in early 86 at 6 years old and remember Championship Wrestling and All Star Wrestling only vaguely. Both shows were on WLVI Channel 56 at the time and would alternate between one being Saturday afternoon and the other Sunday afternoon to both being on Saturdays one after the other. They switched over to Fox at some point between 90-91 IIRC in Boston. Spotlight was on Channel 27, a Worcester Ma based station you had to turn the dial from east to south to get, and that later showed ECW from 95 on. But it wasn't on regularly at all, just popped up now and then and you'd watch it if you could. I didn't have cable but my grandfather did and after church on Sundays we visited his house and I could watch episodes on USA at noon. By the time we did get cable Raw was already 6 months old. I seem to recall Johnny Polo and maybe Gorilla hosting all American at some point in 94 as well.
  12. Wrestling with a Generation Gap has 2/3 of its team watch Bret Hart vs. Tom Magee live on the network. Just the match as we had to blank the audio to make this work so watching the documentary was pointless. Listen to Rob get it wrong why the opening part of the match is gone, endless moaning about Tom Magee's awful face and expressions, a couple of what do I do now funny botches, Nick has actually seen more Tom Magee than Rob, Vince's bodybuilding fetish, Xmas gifts with HHH, and a whole lot less! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0mZdPI5ivbc&feature=youtu.be
  13. Wrestling with a Generation Gap returns leaner and meaner with this one hour podcast (which will be our new running time). First up it is the never before seen (well before the WWE network) AWA Team Challenge series. Trying to make something with not much seems to be the theme, and the gang is pretty positive overall with the exception of a certain "match" which makes the first time Rob and Nick don't bother to watch some of our footage. Then it's off to NXT to watch Ricochet pit his aerial ability vs old school heel Adam Cole!
  14. Like a Phoenix rising from the ashes, WWAGG returns, although this episode was actually recorded months ago. But the podcast will be returning very soon in a new shorter sleeker format! This episode however covers the obscure WWF Pay Per View This Tuesday in Texas. Lots of bios, love for the Macho Man, hate for Hogan's politics of this time period, nostalgia for Rob's childhood era and much more! Then it's over to All in to see Jay Lethal channel the spirit of the Macho Man as he battles dastardly Flip Gordon! Re-instate the Macho Man, Re-instate if that's the plan! Creative note - This was recorded months ago and I was kind of unhappy with it, so I shelved the podcast for a few months. Intend to resume recording tomorrow with shorter episodes and hopefully a more focused team with better production values.
  15. Wrestling with a Generation Gap, the podcast that covers many eras of wrestling returns after a long absence! This time we cover British wrestling, both old and new. Nick takes over as host as we have on the docket Trent Seven & Tyler Bates vs. Pete Dunne and Wolfgang Johnny Saint vs. Fit Finlay (with video) Dynamite Kid vs. Marty Jones (with video) Jim Breaks vs. Vic Faulkner (with video)
