Taped from Charlotte, NC

Your hosts are Bob Caudle & David Crockett. David talks about how much they value the opinions of the fans and appreciate them watching and telling them what they want to see. What the hell kind of attitude is that? How can you run a successful promotion without telling the idiot marks what they want to see and then screwing them out of what they ask for?

– Hosted by Bob Caudle and David Crockett

(This was originally written back in 2009 or whenever it was that my cable company dropped WWE 24/7, as I only got 3 episodes into Mid-Atlantic and then lost it, seemingly for good.  But now it’s back again!  In pog form!)

Thanks for all the great feedback on these, mostly amounting to “Keep doing them!”. They do well and they’re a lot of fun to write. Also, for those into blog stats and such, Wrestle Kingdom 12’s rant has now climbed to the most-read post of the year, so it’s got legs like Jumanji.

So apparently we’re skipping a few weeks in the Network archives for some reason. The big news for this week: Sgt. Slaughter has won the US title tournament!

And this week, David and Bob are happy to announce that we have a NEW WORLD CHAMPION…Ric Flair. Man, what a strange time to be living in, back when Flair was winning his FIRST World title!
