As cries of “The Mothership!” ring out over the land, the 6:05 Superpodcast has returned with another packed show!  The Great Brian Last is joined by John McAdam, making his return to the co-host chair, for this edition of The Only Podcast That Matters, featuring:

– Defense attorney Mickey Sherman joins the show to discuss defending the Iron Sheik after a 1985 incident at a gas station.  Mickey explains what happened and the unique approach he took to ensure his client was seen by the court in a good light.  We also hear Mickey’s memories about the Iron Sheik’s 1987 arrest with Jim Duggan, where he once again defended the former WWF Champion.   We play classic audio from the 1985 promos Mickey filmed for the court, featuring Lou Albano, Bobby Heenan, Fred Blassie, Cyndi Lauper & Gene Okerlund!

– John Hitchcock returns this week with another installment of Front Row Section D!  John’s story this week concerns the final event WCW ran in Greensboro, the night of the squeegee!  John explains the original squeegee incident and how it inspired him to create something special for this event.  As always with Hitch, this is a fun ride!

– We have another edition of the popular “What If?” segment with TGBL & David Bixenspan!  Topics discussed include Gino Hernandez, Antonio Inoki, Continental, Jerry Lawler, Dusty Rhodes, Dynamite Kid & more!

– Allan Blackstock returns this week to once again give his opinion on a controversial topic, as he explains why he thinks Bruiser Brody is overrated!

– John McAdam presents his list of the top ten wrestlers who would have been better than Harley Race as the NWA Champion between 1977 & 1981!  Plus, TGBL & McAdam discuss the Ric Flair 30 For 30, Thunderbolt Patterson, Bruiser Brody, Great American Bash 1991, The Horsemen & more!

Episode 49: Stunt Granny

Your weekly fix of the Superpodcast has arrived!  Popular co-host Tom Robinson is back in the co-host chair this week, joining The Great Brian Last, for another fun trip on the Mothership!  This week’s show features:

– An extensive interview with Colt Toombs, the son of Roddy Piper.  Colt and his sister Ariel’s book on their father, “Rowdy,” was recently published and is our Book Of The Week.  Colt talks about the process of putting this book together and tracing his father’s story, as well as what Roddy’s intentions were when he started putting this book together.  This fun talk illuminates a Roddy Piper that fans never got to know and explains the origins of the rowdy one!

– Classic audio from October 18, 1983 of Captain Lou Albano and Fred Blassie on Rod Luck’s radio show in Philadelphia.  This show, recorded the day after the famous Jimmy Snuka cage match with Don Muraco and less than a week after the passing of the Grand Wizard, is a fascinating time capsule to the period right before the WWF would aggressively compete against the rest of the wrestling industry.  Callers ask about Hulk Hogan, Crusher Verdu, Ric Flair, the status of the WWF Championship in the magazines and more!

– Dan Farren joins the show again to discuss his appearance as the masked referee on the infamous television special Exposed: Pro Wrestling’s Greatest Secrets.

– As discussed on last week’s show, we get to hear John Tolos interviews from 1970 in Los Angeles.  These interviews, which were taped off TV for Bob Barnett, are the only example of Tolos’ amazing work during this period of his career.  Tolos discusses upcoming matches with Fred Blassie, Mil Mascaras and Man Mountain Mike.

– TGBL & TR talk about a multitude of topics, including Tony Schiavone, Bruno Sammartino, notorious fans, Jushin Liger, Halloween Havoc 1992, Dave Brown, Tom’s hatred of Tony Garea and night out with the Clique and much more!  Plus appearances from Impressionist Jim Ross & Stuttering Tommy Rich!  CALL SOMEBODY!
