Roadtrip Music: Sunrise (Instrumental) by SPECTRUM (Stan Hansen)

Violent brawler? West Texas University alumni? Beloved in Japan? One could be forgiven for thinking I’m talking about last week’s edition with Terry Funk – but this man ticks many of the same boxes. It’s Stan “The Lariat” Hansen. Stan Hansen started his career in the territories but it wasn’t long before he hit upward momentum. He debuted 1973 and […]

Podcast: WWF Summerslam 1992 (August 29, 1992)

As we can see winter on the horizon here in Australia we take a look back to summer. The summer of 1992 over in England. It’s the British Bulldog’s finest hour as he battles Bret Hart for the gold.

His range of characters included Foreign Man – later to be […]

Roadtrip Music: Fire by Scooter (TPR Remix) (Sanshiro Takagi)

With the recent news that AEW and DDT/CyberFight have signed a deal to work together (something we’ll discuss more on an upcoming podcast) – I thought this week we’d take a look at one of the key players in this deal. The name Sanshiro Takagi may not mean much to many American fans, as when they think of DDT they […]

Roadtrip Music: All The Days (Instrumental) by Mammoth (Chris Jericho)

The ability to consistently reinvent himself is one of the more talked about attributes these days of Chris Jericho. Since ending his full time wrestling career for the first time in 2005, almost every come back has added a different dimension to his schtick.
