Place to Be Podcast Episode 409: Titan Screwed w/ James Dixon


In this episode of the Place to Be Podcast, Justin is flying solo for the first time but he isn’t alone for long as he sits down for a great chat with author James Dixon. James’ latest addition to his Titan series is Titan Screwed: Lost Smiles, Stunners and Screwjobs and looks at the WWF’s travails throughout 1997 and 1998 up to WrestleMania XIV.

The boys discuss the process behind tackling a project like this, how a fantasy baseball forum led to new discoveries about Shawn Michaels and Syracuse, information on who planted the seed for Montreal in Vince McMahon’s head, his memories of World of Sport, the case for Sting and Big Daddy for the WON Hall of Fame, what he has learned when performing the research for the books, his views on the world of wrestling in 1995 and 1996, how the WWF rebuilt itself and so much more.

James also gives a sneak preview of the newest book, including behind the scenes insight into ECW, WCW’s minor flubs throughout the year, James’ relationship with Brian Pillman’s daughter among a whole lot of other interesting stories and information.
