If you missed the Tuesday March 8th edition of the Online World of Wrestling Radio with host Alan Wojcik and contributors from Wrestle Talk Radio/Otaku Talk Radio’s Spug & Mase plus Kevin K. Scott formerly of Under the Ring, here are the highlights:
Our 100% free to listeners “WrestleMania Memories” guest was soon to be WWE Hall of Famer member Road Warrior Animal who fielded questions from our contributors, callers, chat room residents and emailers on a variety of topics including: his partner Hawk, WWE, NWA/WCW, Japan, AAW, Verne Gagne, Jim Herd, Vince McMahon, Hulk Hogan, Ultimate Warrior, WarGames, the Night of the SkyWalkers, plus his son James’s amazing career at the Ohio State University. Animal will be signing copies of his new book Road Warriors: Danger, Death & the Rush of Wrestling at bookstores across America. Log onto www.theroadwarrioranimal.com for dates and locations.
After an excellent hour long interview, the focus shifted to WWE Monday Night RAW & Friday Night SmackDown! as we inch closer to April 3rd and WrestleMania 27. Spug & Mase gave their opinions on the addition of Tammy “Sunny” Sytch to the 2011 WWE Hall of Fame class, the returns to RAW of John “Bradshaw” Layfield & “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, the verbal war between John Cena & the Rock, Forbes.com announcing investors should buy WWE stock, K-Mart becoming a corporate sponsor & the arrival on next week’s RAW of Jersey Shore cast member Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi. During ths segment Mase gave Alan a news article that regretfully told fans of Alice in Chains former bassist Mike Starr was found dead in Salt Lake City, UT.
The program moved to a review of last Thursday’s TNA iMPACT that saw the crowning of a new World Heayvweight champion in Sting, the short term usage of former Jersey Shore cast member Angelina Pivarnivck, NY Jets star Bart Scott and the wedding of the Jarett’s with an axe weidling Kurt Angle. We apologize but this segment contains profanity as all of the contributors minus Alan could not hold back their frustrations with TNA Wrestling. This episode caused Kevin to walk away from his weekly contribution to the Under the Ring blog. Kevin is always welcome on the show even if Spug thinks his real name is Jamal.
Alan announced on the next show will the “King of Old School” and new OWW Radio Baseball Insider Steve Corino will stop by to help preview the 2011 Major League Baseball season.
March 26th 2001 was the end of an era, the closing of the once great World Championship Wrestling. The promotion was purchased by the rival WWE. On our March 22nd show we will celebrate the legacy of WCW with two former members of their roster, former Monday Nitro announcer Scott Hudson & former WCW superstar Marcus “Buff” Bagwell!
