We’re coming at you this week with a two-for-one Christmas Eve Genius Cast special with interviews with “Hotshot” Danny Duggan and one of the greatest wrestlers to ever don a pair of tights, Terry Funk!
You may have heard about the recent debacle Danny Duggan had where he called out Brutus the Barber Beefcake last month for being unprofessional and skipping dates on the CWE tour up in Canada. This was all over the wrestling news sites and it prompted a hefty response from Beefcake himself. We’re excited to have Danny on our show where he talks openly about what happened in detail. A lot of dirt is dished and you don't want to miss this portion of the show!
In our conversation with Terry Funk, he updates us on how he is feeling, who he believes is really behind the booking of WWE (it's not who you think), which prominent McMahon is involved in MMA, memories of his feud with Lanny where he stripped him naked in front of a crowd and tried to make him wrestle a woman, the Poffo/Funk family connection, and so much more!
