    Oh the early 2000’s had patriotism in the form of the tobacco chewing, bike riding AMERICAN Bad Ass Undertaker. His “yard” was located in the USA. I remember him giving promo about having “big AMERICAN soup bones” (what he called his fist), or how he handed out “AMERICAN ass whippings.” A lot of fans hate biker Taker, but to me it always reminded me of one of my favorite childhood wrestling memories were we first learned of the Deadman’s patriotism when he joined Luger’s Surviver Series team by revealing the lining of his jacket was an AMERICAN flag!

    Dear good People!

    Dre, of course i say “Hi!” back to my device,
    when i’m welcomed so friendly by you.


    That may get me a strange look here or there in the subway
    but – hey: I get the same when i start laughing while listening to my podcasts.

  3. When I saw the title of this episode I first thought it was for Volkoff and Kirschner’s Wrestlemania 2 match, which is my earliest wrestling memory.

    Back in the day, I would visit a cousin for a couple weeks each summer. My cousin’s a couple years older than me so needless to say I was pretty fascinated when he first told me about the WWF and wrestling and all these super hero type characters and villains.

    We had rented Wrestlemania 2 and I hadn’t yet given it a chance when my cousin told me “watch this one, the good guy cheats to win.” Being fresh out of Kindergarten at the time, I couldn’t believe it. Sure enough, Kirschner with Blassie’s cane for the win. At least it was USA over Russia, which I totally bought into at the time.

    Of all things, that’s the one that started it all for me. Shortly after that, I became obsessed with the Dynamite Kid after watching his matches in the Wrestling Classic PPV. I was pretty upset when the Macho Man eliminated him from that tournament.

    I’ll have to go back and watch this “Peace Match.” While I’m at it, I should go back and listen to this episode.
