On this week's show, Karl takes a few questions from the mailbag dealing with a wide range of topics including Survivor Series, Sid Vicious, and a couple off-topic questions. Then, Karl tackles the last episode of NWA Southeastern Championship Wrestling in June 1985 as he watches his favorite promotion be put to rest.

Other topics:

  • We look at the original Survivor Series format -- one that went head to head against Jim Crockett Promotions' biggest show of the year and ultimately forced that show off its date
  • A talk about Ric Flair
  • Vince McMahon's muscle monster fetish from the 1980s and 1990s with a focus on Sid Justice (Sid Vicious/Sycho Sid), Papa Shango, The Warlord, Davey Boy Smith, Ultimate Warrior, and more
  • "Dirt sheet" terminology
  • Indy show payoffs
  • The last NWA Southeastern Championship Wrestling show that aired in June 1985 featuring Ron Fuller, Lord Humongous (Jeff Van Camp), "Bullet" Bob Armstrong, Jerry Stubbs, Arn Anderson, and the death of my childhood.
