The Mental Ward: I Can’t Fight This Feeling Anymore…..

MW

I first discovered pro wrestling in the mid-1980s. “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes doing battle with “Beautiful” Bobby Eaton inside a steel cage is one of my earliest wrestling memories. However, when I saw “Nature Boy” Ric Flair and Sting go 60 minutes at the first Clash of the Champions, I was hooked for life. THAT was storytelling. THAT was drama. THAT was pro wrestling. In my youth Hulkamania ran wild. In my high school and college years, The Attitude Era redefined the industry. In my adult years, things just haven’t been the same. A spark is missing. The sport I loved has morphed into something almost unrecognizable at times. Yet, I still watch. I cling to hope that pro wrestling will one day again return to past glory. Webster defines insanity as doing the same thing over and over again but expecting a different result. Ladies and gentlemen, come on in. We’re all friends here. Welcome back to, “The Mental Ward.”

The PWA Show: Red, White, and Blue Edition…

PATRIOT

Episode 25 comes to you on July 4th! As America celebrates her 239th birthday, Chad and Keila are back talking pro wrestling. The duo covers a variety of topics this week including another lackluster edition of WWE Monday Night RAW, the disappointment that has been WWE Tough Enough thus far, a WWE Hall of Famer looking to work with NXT talents, the revolving door of former World Champions leaving and returning to TNA, what a potential working relationship between TNA and GFW might mean, and much more! Chad also reads another listener e-mail and reveals a huge money making opportunity in the latest edition of “The PWA Mailbag”. Continuing with the patriotic theme this week, “The Patriot” Del Wilkes joins the show on “The PWA Hotseat. Del speaks very candidly and in great detail about his career in both football and pro wrestling as well as his life outside the ring. He talks about growing up as a huge fan of pro wrestling in South Carolina before becoming an All-American offensive lineman for the Gamecocks and blocking for Heisman Trophy winner, George Rogers. He discusses all the stops he made along the way in his wrestling career including Memphis, the AWA, GWF, WCW, the WWF, and several very successful stints in Japan working for Giant Baba’s All Japan Pro Wrestling. Del also talks about his battle with drugs and prescription painkillers and how that addiction landed him in prison. His story is one of redemption and the inspirational tale is the subject of a fantastic upcoming documentary that you can learn more about here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1244526869/del-the-patriot-wilkes-the-man-behind-the-mask.
