    Would Al Perez have been a star if he hadn't of threatened to shoot on Flair?

    If he could demonstrate value beyond that of Nailz, he'd hold the strap until Perry Saturn broke out.

    It looked like Spivey was gonna get big with Waylon Mercy, but injuries put an end to his career. I personally think it was a missed opportunity

    You mean the Seth Rollins Sr? He might have been a star, don't know if he would've been one but definitely a possibility but when you get a program with Flair, you stick with the program and if he stuck with the program, he could've became a star even without winning the belt. Too bad

    Duggan isn't doing his podcast anymore. :(
    I listened to his episode about the time him and Sheik got busted traveling together and was surprised how pissed Vince was about them breaking kayfabe. "What have you done to us? Turn in your tickets and go home, dammit!"
    Oh and the Cornette episode about the 87 GAB tour tells me exactly why wrestlers were all on a cocktail of drugs and pills back then. The travel was ridiculous.

    Any of you guys ever heard of Nicky Mimikos? I just came across a post of his on Facebook where he is commenting on a picture of a friend of mine. He says, "Dewey, you are proof that even us WWF Hall of Famers need heroes."

    well i never heard of him, and looking at his facebook he appears to claim he was one of the people who played Doink. Yet I google image searched it and both turn up Matt Osbourne for the source. It also says he was retired from 17 yrs.pro wrestler with nwa.wcw.awa.swa.ecw.uwf n wwf.

    anyone heard of this guy at all?

    Fun back and forth between Bischoff and Jericho on their respective podcasts.

    Not sure if already covered here but if not, Bischoff covered Jericho's WCW career on 83 Weeks and pointed out a lot of obvious bullshit from Jericho's first book.

    So Jericho has Conrad on TIJ and in a round about way admits he's full of shit (a lot like how he admits he was just bullshitting on the Self Destruction of the Ultimate Warrior.)

    83 Weeks is starting to distinguish itself as the best of Conrad's podcasts.

    That was pretty ridiculous.

    Kevin Nash took care of him.

    Taking liberties with a 60 year old man like Terry is just ridiculous.

    He's from Quebec. I'm surprised that's all he did.

    Jerichos definitely full of shit
    In his book he claims hes the one that shot the infamous Jim Cornette Dairy Queen when its well known that California indy guy/OVW ring announcer Ron Hed was the one that shot it

    The one I read was still entertaining enough to be worth it but he shits on Bischoff so much it's just ridiculous given his WCW run was what made him.

    If he's willing to lie about the DQ incident then the whole damn book is probably BS. :eek:
