DragonKingKarl Classic Wrestling Show: 1980 in pro wrestling, pt. 2


On this edition of the longform history of pro wrestling series, I continue my deep dive into 1980 including Verne Gagne not being able to give up the AWA world title and putting himself over Nick Bockwinkel, the continued rise of Hulk Hogan, the retirement tour of Jackie Fargo, Roger Smith and Don Bass, the Iron Sheik, The Assassins, and much more.

If you missed part 1, check that out and join me on my look at this important year in pro wrestling.
