We take a deep dive into May 1982 when 21,000 people turned out to the Superdome in New Orleans to see the Junkyard Dog & Mr. Olympia battle The Samoans.

Plus, the Buzz Sawyer vs. Tommy Rich rivalry was raging on in Georgia, Jimmy Garvin won the Florida title, Hulk Hogan was chasing AWA World Champion Nick Bockwinkel, WWF Champion Bob Backlund battled Bob Orton, Jr., plus Mr. Wrestling 2, Butch Reed, the Von Erichs, Terry Gordy in SECW, and more!
