Episode 82: That’s What They Tell Me

Aloha!  It’s time once again to board The Mothership and take a wrestling journey with the 6:05 Superpodcast!  The Great Brian Last is joined this week by popular co-host Scott Cornish for this packed show, featuring:

– Kevin Sullivan returns to the show this week to discuss Mark Lewin.  Kevin talks about his relationship with Mark, as well as just how big a star Mark was at a young age in New York.  Kevin recalls his time with the Purple Haze in Florida, Hawaii, Mid Atlantic and throughout the world.  Kevin & TGBL also discuss a little baseball!

– Jerry Grey joins the Superpodcast to discuss some of his adventures in the wrestling business.  Jerry wrestled in almost every territory in the 1980’s, and this week he talks about breaking into the business, as well as his time in Florida & Mid South.  Jerry fills the conversation with interesting and hilarious stories, from Bill Watts’ meetings to Dick Slater’s bar room brawls.  Jerry also talks about his recent medical issues and his battle with cancer.  If you would like to support Jerry’s battle, please go to https://www.gofundme.com/527hg2g!

We also talk about the many World Championships of the early 1960’s and which belt meant the most!
