OSWP Patreon!

I’ve joked several times on the show that we didn’t have a Patreon because for whatever reason it seemed silly in the past but here I am writing the introduction to the Old School Wrestling Podcast Patreon page. In talking with an old friend, he convinced me that some people just like to contribute this way to things they enjoyed. It made sense, so I figured I’d make this another option to the listeners of the Old School Wrestling Podcast who wanted to contribute to our show.

Please visit our Patreon page here if you’d like to pledge to the show….


#244 – Billy Red Lyons vs Baron Gattoni, January 15, 1957

This week on the show, Dre and the Black Cat discuss some amazing footage the Jon Boucher discovered and had converted from old reel to reel tapes – Wrestling from the Maple Leaf Gardens – 1957. We review a match between two guys who really don’t know much about but have a great time discussing Billy Red Lyons and Baron Gattoni. Jon joins us in the second half to discuss how he found the footage and the process of converting it. We are also joined by SUPERSTAR Bill Dundee! Please support the OSWP Patreon at Patreon.com/OSWP. Thanks for listening and we’ll see you at…the matches.

#243 – Tommy Rich v Abdullah the Butcher, Puerto Rico, 1987

This week on the show, Dre and the Black Cat watch a classic bloody brawl between two legends of the past – Tommy Rich and Abdullah the Butcher! In the second half of the show we read an old Liz Hunter column and visit the office of Vincent K. McMahon for another five minute pitch.

#242 – Dynamite Kid v Macho Man, Wrestling Classic 1985

This week on the show Dre and the Black Cat talk about a dream match from 1985 at an often forgotten event called the Wrestling Classic. This show featured 16 classic mid-80s WWF characters, most of whom would have their very own LJN figure. In the second half we talk about the night Motley Crue and the WWF shared a venue on a night in 1985 as well as Black Cat’s first road trip to see DEATH MATCH WRESTLING. Please support the show at Patreon.com/oswp and we’ll see you…at the matches.
