Wrestling Weekly: 56 Glorious Years, Chris & Nancy, Mailbag

Les & Harley.jpg

July 4th will mark Les Thatcher’s 56th anniversary in the wrestling business!  Les & Vic start off talking about what it was like early in Les’ career to walk into locker rooms filled with guys he’d paid to see just a few years earlier, including the time young, inexperienced Les was ribbed into doing something he shouldn’t have done to of all people, THE ORIGINAL SHEIK.  We’ll also discuss Chris Jericho’s recent podcast with Nancy Benoit’s sister (21:12) and Les will share some personal memories of both Chris & Nancy.  We’ll wrap up by opening the mailbag and answering your questions on whether Les saw WCW’s impending doom (40:41) when he had a developmental territory deal with them, HWA’s television coverage (44:03), wrestling Hiro Matsuda in Florida (51:01), the lack of time limit draws in wrestling today (55:01), that Stephanie McMahon interview from a few days ago (58:24), and what Les thought when he watched the Ali vs Inoki fight on that fateful night in 1976 (65:21).  Thanks for listening, have a great weekend and if you’re celebrating the US Independence Day, Happy 4th and be safe~!
