May 29, 1982 (WCCW 23)

 

World Class team batting averages! Good Ol' Al in a Taped Fist match with Great Kabuki! (but nobody told Kabuki) THE CANDYMAN! Kerry vs Bundy in the main event! And most important of all, mother f'n CHUNGERMANIA running wild!!!! Pete, Kelly and Johnny are here to break it all down.

 

If you listen to only one WCCW 1982 retrospective podcast this week make it World Cast!

I watched it on the Network this morning before listening and I laughed so hard when Shaft kicked out at 4.

 

The Chunger promo was amazing but he did have one appearance on Buddy Rogers Corner in July 1983 in the WWF.

 

I wish Kim Duk could have crossed paths with The Sandman and had a kendo stick match. Then they have beers afterward as a sign of respect.

Parv loses his smile = Parv stops watching wrestling = Titans cancelled just before we start 1983 = no chance at seeing Rogers Corner with Chunger in July 1983

He’ll come back. I just know he will.

Just watched the 83 promo, what an orator. I'm inspired.

 

JFK: Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.

 

Reagan: Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.

Episode 17

June 26, 1982 (WCCW 27)

 

We at World Cast pledge never, NEVER to miss a Wednesday...even if the recording date is screwed up and we have no choice but to release an episode slotted for early January as a fill in. AND THAT TIME IS NOW!

 

Hopefully this isn't too confusing, as the boys jump ahead a few weeks to witness a pretty bland episode of World Class. But we have new commentators! (the backup tight end for the Cowboys?!?!) We have vignettes! (done poorly) We have extremely hairy wrestlers! (Well, just one) And through it all, we have Good Ol' Al to save us with another ** mindbender.

 

Catch us next week for our regularly scheduled episode looking at Star Wars: The Super Bowl of Wrestling!!!!! (Let everyone else go nuts over The Last Jedi)

Episode 18

 

https://soundcloud.com/prowrestlingonly/world-cast-18-star-wars-the-super-bowl-of-wrestling-review

 

June 4, 1982 (WCCW 25, 26 & part of 28)

 

Forget about trying to get tickets to that movie and join Pete, Kelly and Johnny for a double-sized look at Star Wars: The Super Bowl of Wrestling/Fritz Von Erich's Retirement Show, from a,..ahem...relatively well-attended Texas Stadium!

 

The boys look at a crazy good ladies match, a hollow match featuring legendary luchadores, a contender for worst battle royal ever, an epic battle between Kerry Von Erich and Harley Race, and, of course, the "Immortal" Fritz Von Erich vs King Kong Bundy in a (the first ever?) Falls Count Anywhere match.

 

So grab a seat (there are thousands to choose from) and join us for another wacky episode of World Cast!

December 25, 1981 (Link to show: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9HIb3xzfEnlTFZ3cWpld0VwT1E/view?usp=sharing)

 

Santa Claus is real folks, and this morning he just dropped a special World Cast episode for all the good boys and girls out there!
Pete, Kelly and Johnny couldn’t get enough of the, shall we say, lesser elements of 1982 WCCW, so they decided to dip into 1981 and really wallow in the muck. Marvel at a not so exciting brass knuckles title match, a not so light challenger for the light heavyweight title, a not so easy to follow two ring 6-man tag team match, a not so impressive Texas Death match, and, yet again, a not so great battle royal. But the boys have the Christmas spirit and, like they always do, make watching a crummy show a whole lot of fun.

 

Merry Christmas and thanks for listening to World Cast in 2017!

I have said it before and I will say it again nothing brings the best out of the Titans (or 3/4 of them) than a terrible card! This was a great Christmas night treat.

I do have my own King Kong Bundy story to match Johnny Sorrow's. I met him at in indy show in Worcester MA around 2007 and had him autograph my VHS of Wrestlemania 2. As we are chatting I place my wallet on his table like an idiot and then turn to say something to a friend. When I turn back it's gone. I do a mini panic (as there was quite a bit of cash in it) for about a minute until Bundy produces it from his back pocket (and I had turned around for maybe 4 seconds). He and I bust out laughing, he says it's pretty sad if someone his size is too stealthy for me. Ninja Bundy!

Episode 19

July 10, 1982 (WCCW 29)

 

The boys ring in 2018 discussing a very good episode of WCCW TV. Things get off to an auspicious start with a turgid match out of the gate (if you are a fan of star babyface referee David Manning this one is for you), but then we get some really out there vignettes followed by an amazing PENALTY BOX MATCH between Kerry/Kevin and Kabuki/Dragon!!! Definitely one of the best matches we've seen so far, folks.

 

World Cast and Wednesdays: Better than Peanut Butter and Jelly, and meant to last forever, like Sonny and Cher
