#299 – OSWP Thanksgiving 2021 – Survivor Series 1989

It’s the special time of year for the Old School Wrestling Podcast when we all gather together to give thanks to all things professional wrestling. This year we’re back in Greensboro, North Carolina with David Crockett and his five new additions to his house that he’s over since March of 2020.

Along with enjoying the company of all of our favorite old wrestlers, we are, as always, joined by the listeners of the OSWP and all of their wrestling themed food dishes for the big Thanksgiving meal.

And of course, we talk about wrestling, and this year we review one of the greatest 80s era WWF pay-per-views, Survivor Series 1989. Join us around the table for another OSWP Thanksgiving!

If you enjoy the show, please help support it by signing up for the OSWP Patreon at patreon.com/oswp! Thanks for listening and we’ll see you…and the matches.

#298 – Ricky Steamboat v Jake Roberts, Saturday Night’s Main Event, October 4th, 1986

Dre and the Black Cat take a look at a classic WWF feud between Ricky Steamboat and Jake Roberts that extended for five months during 1986, starting at the Saturday Night’s Main Event in May when Jake splattered Ricky’s head on the concrete like a watermelon, going through the summer, and culminating at the next Saturday Night’s Main Event in October. Also featured is the return of the FIVE MINUTE PITCH.

Hello!

It’s hard to believe but it’s that time of year when we start to plan for the annual feast at David Crockett’s house for Thanksgiving when we all get together with our favorite Mid-Atlantic legends like Boogie Woogie Man, Dusty Rhodes, Shasta Whatley, and most importantly, David Crockett. It’s our 11th year! Will you be joining us? Again, David Crockett, if you’re reading this, it’s not real, and we’re not actually coming to your house.
