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~!
