Episode 76: The Flowers Of Pain

THE MOTHERSHIP!  The 6:05 Superpodcast is back with another packed episode!  Join The Great Brian Last, with Jeff Bowdren in the co-host chair, for this “oh criminy” inducing show, featuring:

– Bertrand Hebert returns to the show to discuss his new book, our Book Of The Week, Mad Dog: The Maurice Vachon Story, out now on ECW Press!  Bertrand talks about Maurice’s early days in Montreal, his street brawls and amateur wrestling achievements, as well as Maurice’s later success in his home town.  We hear about the development of the Mad Dog character and the impact he had on the AWA, Montreal and Portland.  Bertrand also talks about how Maurice helped many legendary wrestlers early in their career.  A fun and informative look at one of wrestling’s all time greats!

– Stan Saxon, the man behind the mask of Brother Midnight, joins the show to discuss his career and the creation of his popular gimmick.  Stan talks about the scene he broke into in Canada and the injury that led him to put on the mask, baby!  We will hear about Brother Midnight’s famed programs & promos with The Tulip, The Sassy Man, and Sweet Daddy Caddy!  Stan also talks about his post-Midnight gimmick of Dr. X and gives an example of one of his promos.  A really cool look at a popular Superpodcast figure!

Also, TGBL & Jeff discuss the Road Warriors, Buddy Landel, as well as Jeff’s new podcast – Breaking Kayfabe with Jeff Bowdren.  Plus the Tom Robinson Medical Update, Hot Dog, the Handsome Boogie Man & much more!
