This week is a little different. I talk about when pro wrestling become worked and how styles changed over the years. How people who say wrestling was better back in my day don't realize wrestling has always changed. I looked at cards from 1916, 1940, 1960, 1980, and 1998 and compare the workers and styles. Also this show a look at the early career of Ricky Steamboat including the unusual name he started working under. Also I answer listener questions on Continental, The Zodiac, and more.
