Feb 6 Doc Young's Wrestling Weekly: Ribs, Potatoes and Donut Holes?

Your questions make up today’s show, so Les and Vic are here to discuss potatoes, ribs and donut holes.  No, this is not a cooking podcast, but you asked about them, so Les will tell you some stories about guys who worked too stiff, a couple of stories about ribs guys played on other guys and a few mean spirited ones too, what (if anything) a donut hole is in wrestling parlance, how Les put cards together when he booked, and a few other things as well.  You’ll also hear about NXT and a couple of things that got Vic’s attention during the Austin/HHH podcast.  Thanks for listening, and have a great weekend~!

 


Feb 13 Doc Young's Wrestling Weekly: Rollins, Young, NXT Expansion, Mailbag and much more~!

An interesting week for the WWE Public Relations Department with respect to Seth Rollins and Darren Young.  Les and Vic will talk those situations and address HHH’s plans to expand NXT into a touring brand (which includes a story about Les’ plans with HWA that were frowned upon in Stamford).  We’ll also answer your questions about guys getting fired for refusing to do jobs, did Les ever refuse to do a job, Mid Atlantic announcer Charlie Harville, thoughts on HHH’s comments that he might prefer to train guys from scratch because some independent workers have bad habits they don’t want to let go of and much more!  Thanks for listening and have a great weekend~!



Feb 20 Doc Young's Wrestling Weekly: Fast Lane Picks, Tony Charles, Fired by Ole Anderson, more~!

Les and Vic return to give predictions for WWE Fast Lane this Sunday; Reigns or Bryan?  Will John Cena be the first to pin Rusev?  Also on the show are some great stories about Tony Charles and Ole Anderson, a tremendous piece of business for Georgia Championship Wrestling Les was working on that never saw the light of day, being fired by Ole and much more!  Thanks for listening and have a great weekend~!

 


FREE TODAY: 2/27 Doc Young's Wrestling Weekly: GREAT Observer Piece on Reigns/Bryan, much much more~

It’s a busy weekend in pro wrestling and MMA, so Les and Vic return with GIANT SIZED edition of the show!  Topics today include: what is the worst thing a wrestler could do when he hears a “boring” chant, why it’s the worst and what the guys in the ring should do instead; Dave Meltzer’s tremendous piece in the Observer on Reigns over Bryan, which is really about so much more than that.  We’ll discuss guys who didn’t look like they should be on top but were, walking the line between sticking to your plan and adjusting to what the crowd is telling you, and Vic cuts a promo on why he thinks going with Roman Reigns is not the right move at this stage of his development, and it’s not because Daniel Bryan is more over than Reigns or anything like that.  Best of all this show is completely FREE, so please post the link or file elsewhere and help spread the word about wrestlingobserver.com!
