#208 – Steven Regal v Bobby Eaton, November 2, 1996

This week on the Old School Wrestling Podcast, Dre and the Black Cat revisit the budding partnership of Steven Regal and Beautiful Bobby in 1995 and sadly the eventual breakup of the classic Blue Blood tag team later the next year. In particular they review a great short WCW Saturday Night match between the two for the WCW Television title from November of that year. In the second half of the show they go over feedback from the NWA Saturday Night episode, take listener questions from Twitter, and get a visit from WWE Hall of Famer Steve Austin. Please support the show by purchasing OSWP merchandise over at flairchop.com. We’ll see you…………………………..at the matches.


  1. Nice episode guys. Lord Steven / William Regal is one of my all time favorites. His “eating shit” disgusted looks, along with calling opponents “miserable toe rag” or “sunshine” during promos always did it for me. Not to mention the British technical chain wrestling style. The odd couple partnership with Bobby Eaton was great, as was his similar mismatched pairing with Tajiri several years later in the WWF. Good stuff!

    Now to a “sometimes we’re wrong” moment. I love how Dre called Bobby’s replacement in The Blue Bloods, Squire Dave Taylor “Dave Squire.” This brought to mind 80s schlock rocker Billy Squier of “Stroke Me”, “Everybody Wants Some” and “Lonely is the Night” fame (or shame?)

    In 1987 having a Hard Rock Cafe t-shirt made you too cool.

    Downtown Disney at Disneyland still has an ESPN Zone and a Rain forest Cafe. We eat at both of them trip.

    The Hard Rock Cafe company is now owned Seminole Tribe of Florida now.

    I didn’t know you guys went to the Pillman shows. The Benoit-Regal match was an amazing experience live.

    I hope I’m wrong, but IIRC, Nash never paid what he promised.
