***The program was opened by unfortunate news. We were schedule d to have UFC star and author Brock Lesnar. However his book publishing company that set up the interview; HarperCollins, informed us Mr. Lesnar had to pull out at the last moment. He had done some media interviews during Tuesday and his Diverticulitis flared up, sending Mr. Lesnar to the Mayo Clinic.
***The show moved on to an exclusive interview with one of the godfathers of Pro Wrestling Guerrilla and OWW Radio Baseball Analyst JOEY “MAGNUM” RYAN who talked about the current news in Major League Baseball along with memories of his career, holding the NWA World Tag Team championship with Karl “Machine Gun” Anderson, how PWG came to be & who handles what in the home office, plus fielded some listener queries.

***Following a commercial break, Alan and Spug broke down the press release regarding the sale of Ring of Honor to the Sinclair Media Group including the long & short term effects. The program shifted gears to an hour long memorial discussion in honor of the sudden passing of “Macho Man” Randy Savage. Joining Spug and Alan were the curator of www.TheHistoryofWWE.com GRAHAM CAWTHON & the co-author of the critically acclaimed WWE Encyclopedia BRIAN SHIELDS.
