Doc Young's Wrestling Weekly (June 5): Cena vs. Owens, Austin Podcast, Knoxville in June of '79, more~!

Les and Vic share their thoughts on John Cena vs Kevin Owens from Elimination Chamber, and as much as Vic likes that Kevin Owens won, there was something he wished was different and he explains what that was and why.  We’ll also talk the Austin/Heyman podcast and why Les loved it, as well as jump into the wayback machine to talk the events of June 1979 in the Knoxville territory, as it was a VERY eventful month.  In fact, if you’d like to see the lineups for the biggest shows in the territory which took place on Friday nights, you can see them in our show thread on THE BOARD.  Thanks for listening and have a great weekend~!
