It is our distinct honor to have Sean Waltman on our show this week!
In our candid conversation, Waltman opens up about the traumatic brain injury he endured and being told by doctors that his wrestling career was over at age 20, what it felt like to be scoring an upset victory over Razor Ramon on national television as the 123 Kid six months later, the feud he's most thankful for, memories of Randy Savage, his feelings on the nickname "The Kliq", the biggest difference between working for WCW and WWE, his thoughts on being fired by Eric Bischoff via Fed-Ex telegram, the hypothetical match-up between nWo and DX, his favorite memories of being in DX, Chyna in the WWE Hall of Fame, thoughts on Marty Jannetty, hilarious stories of Butch Miller of The Bushwackers, how he found and rescued his adorable dog, Lula, whether he has another run left in him, the Hollywood wrestling fan who took him under her wing, his podcast X-Pac 1,2,360, and so much more!
Also on this week's show: An interview with Jonathon Dobbs, a wrestler who once worked under Kentucky wrestling promotor, Dale Mann. He discusses the two murders Mann was involved in, including one of his referees.
Plus: Iron Sheik's unreleased autobiography, why Randy ditched the trunks for a t-shirt and long tights in his last run as a babyface in the WWF, Lanny's first match in front of an audience, the biggest cause of the closure of the Poffo family's ICW promotion, whether or not Lanny plans on writing an autobiography, Randy training Shane McMahon, stories of James Harris (aka Kamala), and more!
