After binging all the episodes I hate that have to wait until the 28th for the next one.

Jordan 04-24-2020 11:00 PM

David Schultz to me is like what the Stone Cold character was but for real for real. He is awesome and it's a shame his career dwindled. Looking forward to this one.

Bad News Gertner 04-25-2020 07:02 AM

He pretty much got blackballed after the Stossel incident. I think he showed up in Stampede and Memphis for a brief spell but that's it.

Bad News Gertner 04-25-2020 07:36 AM

He later became a bounty hunter

Jordan 04-25-2020 10:54 AM

Really looking forward to Herb Abrams story. I can't really imagine why it's on "The Darkside" of the Ring... is there some scandal involved? I know a bit about the promotion taping in Vegas and doing a couple of "PPV's". Not my favorite super fed attempt but interesting none the less. My favorite attempt at a super fed is the little known about Jerry Jarret was involved in the the 90's I believe.

Bad News Gertner 04-25-2020 02:33 PM

Lol I'm bursting at the seams wanting to answer that question. I just don't want to spoil the episode, but yes there's tons of crazy Herb Abrams stories.

Seanny One Ball 04-25-2020 05:01 PM

Just look at the episode title ffs

Seanny One Ball 04-25-2020 05:03 PM

I have had one image of Herb Abrahams in my mind since I heard about him and it's speedos in a silk dressing gown with cocaine all through his chest hair.

Think Burt Reynolds in "Striptease"

I listen to JR and Arn .... Stopped listening to Prichard's after it became the "kiss HHH ass in radio format" show. Oddly that started right around the time Prichard was rehired.

Watching the Snuka episode now and the former sheriff just said "the fact that some tells different stories is not enough evidence to charge someone with a crime." :eek: Right buddy ... nothing odd about that statement.

I'm with you, not a fan. Nothing really against him personally but I just don't see the need for a "setup man" on podcasts, or as he calls it, a "host".

"Hey Bruce what about this, hey Eric tell me how you did that, hey JR what do you think of so and so."

I don't see the value, he just takes up time from the people I actually want to hear talk.

The former Sheriff was hilariously sketchy.
I mean it was perfect.

wonder if he was paid more from vince then alot of wrestlers that year

Seanny One Ball 04-27-2020 04:16 PM

I think questions like that see you in a concrete box

Seanny One Ball 04-27-2020 04:18 PM

20k for a local Sheriff I reckon.

20k in the 80's. Right into his nostrils.

Wait. What dies this have to do with Paul Bearer?

Droford 04-28-2020 01:55 AM

What's extra about the extended cut episodes of Benoit? My DVR recorded them but they're still 1 hour long each. I don't want to watch again if it's not something worthwhile

they could call the spinoff tales from the da..

Hmm

WinterDecay 04-28-2020 04:52 AM

One question, how is Dark Side of the Ring able to use WWF/E footage?

Bad News Gertner 04-28-2020 07:50 AM

They only use very short clips and they use youtube clips that are slightly distorted. I believe it's called "Fair Use"

Seanny One Ball 04-28-2020 07:41 PM

Just flip the image and distort the sound, you wiley pirates

Jordan 04-28-2020 11:07 PM

That was great.

Bad News Gertner 04-28-2020 11:27 PM

Had to pick up my gf from work so I'm gonna watch it tomorrow.

I like John Stossel as a investigative journalist type person but he's really a huge asshole

Jordan 04-29-2020 08:37 AM

This was one of my favorite epsiodes yet. I have a lot of respect for Dr. D. He's a bad mother fucker. Goddamn I want to see Dr. D in his prime vs New Jack.

Bad News Gertner 04-29-2020 08:59 AM

Is Schultz still peddling his bullshit story about he and Mr.T

drave 04-29-2020 09:10 AM

Hogan said that Dr. D slapped the piss outta Mr. T.


Dr. D maintains he was going over to see his friend Tanaka, next to him. I was kinda fucked up watching this, so names might not be right....


This was good shit. This dude does NOT give a fuck. I always recall seeing this clip, but knew nothing about the story around it. Loved it.


Stossel is a huge fucking pussy.

Bad News Gertner 04-29-2020 10:12 AM

Greg Valentine said he watched the whole thing happen. Chief Jay basically told Greg "watch this" and as soon as Dr. D ran towards the ring he was tackled and hog tied by a bunch of cops

what was the story he'd regularly been telling?

drave 04-29-2020 10:21 AM

He was a badass bounty hunter too, ahead of DOG :lol:

Jordan 04-29-2020 10:52 AM

In hindsight it's too bad he didn't beat him bloody considering what it cost him. Fuck Vince he told Dave to let him have it. I really wish Shultz would've been the WWF heel that epsiode intended. I wonder was he going to originally have the Piper role at WrestleMania?

Bad News Gertner 04-29-2020 12:22 PM

He was barely above a jobber to the stars by the end of 84

Schultz was more or less done being a pushed guy when they replaced Schultz with Bob Orton in Piper's crew in mid 84

Jordan 04-29-2020 12:58 PM

He should have slammed Andre at Pontiac

Seanny One Ball 04-29-2020 01:49 PM

How much soda pop have you drunk, Jordan?

I seem to remember a lot of guys talking about how Mr T was a dick, I know Piper and him didn't get along at all.


Bad News Gertner 04-29-2020 02:41 PM

The Mr.T incident happened in California, not MSG.

Bad News Gertner 04-29-2020 02:46 PM

Herb Abrams next week will be the most entertaining episode they've done.

Bad News Gertner 04-29-2020 02:48 PM

This kind of stuff is why I'm so interested in this era and have been for years. There's so many crazy ass stories from that time.
