Kind of surprised it hasn't come up yet…I remember Pedicino from Pro Wrestling This Week (came on before UWF in 86 in my TV market) and he was one of the owners of the GWF. Seemed to be someone who really enjoyed pro wrestling during a really hot time for the business.
Yeah I forgot to bring it up the past couple of days. I was also a longtime view of PWTW and the “Round Mound of Sound” was all over WCW TV for a while as well and he was always really good at his job. Meltzer was talking about him on the last Observer Radio and his main thing was that he would get deeply involved in all these projects and then drop them after a year or so before moving onto the next. Also, the Nigerian finance story is all time legendary. RIP Joe!
