Vic has already talked Wrestlemania and Raw this week on Observer Live, so Les will be giving his thoughts about the show, the Sting/HHH match, whether or not there’s still serious interest in seeing an Undertaker/Sting match, or in seeing the Undertaker at all at this point.  We’ll also answer your questions on how to program WWE Network, kicking out of finishers, whatever happened to saying “I quit”, wacky fan behavior and wacky wrestler behavior and more!  Thanks for listening~!

4/17 Doc Young's Wrestling Weekly: Cena vs Bryan?, Rules of Good Booking, Mailbag, more~!

Les and Vic return with their take on the Briscoes spurning WWE to remain in ROH; do the pros outweigh the cons?  We'll also talk about Daniel Bryan being pulled from the WWE's European tour as a precautionary measure, then Vic gets fired up about a booking decision WWE nearly made if Bryan had been healthy enough to work a single match on Raw this week.  That leads into a discussion on the basic tenets of good booking, why does it not seem to exist in WWE very much, and answer your questions from the mailbag.  Thanks for listening and have a great weekend~!



4/24 Doc Young's Wrestling Weekly: Tons on Ron Wright, Extreme Rules Predictions, more~!

Les and Vic return to talk about the late Ron Wright.  Some great stories about Ron Wright and Whitey Caldwell, the legends in that East Tennessee territory, a look into what a trip around that territory was like, & what Les did when working outdoor shows in the rain.  We’ll also discuss why the Wright/Caldwell feud drew for 10 years in a relatively small territory no matter how many times the promotion went back to it, how the sale of that territory played into some problems between Ric Flair and Blackjack Mulligan, how Wright was a great heel manager in Smoky Mountain Wrestling despite starting his run with a gimmick you’d think would get him a lot of sympathy instead of heat and we’ll also make our predictions for WWE Extreme Rules this Sunday.  This show flew by for us, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we did.  Thanks for listening and have a great weekend~!
