Exile on Badstreet #57: Rasslin from the 80’s – Featuring John McAdam

Kris Zellner is joined by John McAdam for another installment of our “Wrestling from the 80’s” series, and this time we focus on Volume 5 of his set. We talk about the early days of Dusty Rhodes booking for Jim Crockett Promotions, the genesis of Arn Anderson in Southeastern, Jim Cornette getting his head shaved, Junkyard Dog leaving Mid-South and how that affected Watts, Austin Idol’s four flat tires, Ric Flair & Missing Link’s odd relationship, Muhammad Ali at the Superdome for Mid-South, and tons more. This is a damn fun show, so listen now!!!
