David Bixenspan and The Great Brian Last are back in the saddle for a super special, supersized Superpodcast, which covers the following:
The main attraction this week, which is the audio of the audio of the 1996 Eddie Gilbert Memorial Show brunch/banquet, with speeches from Dory Funk Jr., Doug Gilbert, an unadvertised Mick Foley, and others. It comes after most of a normal length episode, and runs from the 1:35:37 mark to the 2:33:59 mark of the show. So if you want to jump to that first or save it for later, those are your timestamps.
Matches from Kick Ass Wrestling’s 1999 TV taping at a women’s prison finally hitting YouTube starting with Bull Pain vs. The Soultaker (not that Soultaker).
The careers of Kerry Von Erich and Eddie Gilbert, who passed away 23 and 21 years ago this week, respectively.
