Episode 1 - The Birth of Southern States Wrestling
In my first patreon podcast we take a look back to what the East Tennessee Independent (outlaw) Wrestling scene was like in the late 80s and early 90s. The differences between the Knoxville area and The Tri Cities. How thing were ran, promoted, and presented.
My experiences with the Pro Wrestling Association and just how bad things could get. The idea of running an event sparks the birth of a promotion. Who was there to help? Who double crossed us? Who do I still 29 years later refuse to have anything to do with? Who has stuck with me for this long strange trip?
The work that went into the first event in probably the worst arena in the country. How that night changed my life for ever. I'm going to take you through the highs and lows of my earliest days in Pro Wrestling.
Episode 2 - Did I Miss Anything?
One this edition I talk about growing up in Pro Wrestling and how it effected my personal and professional life as an adult. I have a few follow up stories from episode 1 covering Jimmy McKeeian, The Tennessee Warrior, and The Longrider. We also talk how jealousy lead to two fist fights and a third fight I still don't know why it happened 30 years later.
Episode 3 - The Gambler
How is living the life of a wrestler like being a Gambler? On this episode I take you through three of the craziest days in my career. My friend Scotty McKeever was right there with me for them . Find out what happens when the police are called to save a promoter in North Carolina. A year and and half later in Ohio the police once again have to get involved and this time it's much different. What happened when Scotty and I wrestled Aladdin the Genie in a small Utah town? Plus stories on Wahoo McDaniel, Chris Walker, and Scott Sterling.
