#258 – Rock n Roll Express v Tully Blanchard & Arn Anderson, October 3, 1987

Dre and the Black Cat go back to the sweet spot – Jim Crockett Promotions, mid-80s. This time they review a legendary match between the Four Horsemen and the Rock n Roll Express when Ricky Morton was taken out before the match by the Midnight Express and Robert Gibson had to defend the titles by himself against Tully and Arn. We are joined by Robert from the Atomic Elbow and we find out about the time Dre was punched in the face three times. Please support the show by pledging to the OSWP Patreon at patreon.com/oswp. Thanks for listening and we’ll see you…at the matches!

    Boy it appears Dre was in top form as far as complaining goes this week. The first complaint came a mere 28 seconds into the podcast. Things didn’t get much better in the next minute. At a minute and twenty two we are informed Robert is on this weeks show. When it rains it pours.

    The guys then get into breaking down the match. During the breakdown Robert actually posed a thought provoking question when he asked if Arn Anderson is the greatest wrestler ever. Arn may not be a guy who you would think of in this position but when you think more into it, Arn was a very good wrestler for a long time.

    I received reports from other listeners that they began to clap after hearing Dre’s story about getting beat up. I also thoroughly enjoyed this story. I may criticize Dre and Robert but when they do good I will acknowledge it.

    We then get to the new game the OSWP boys came up with. Essentially it was twenty questions. Now on a wrestling podcast you would think it would go without saying that the item would be wrestling related. Poor black cat asked that question and Dre said it would count as a question. I received reports of audible groans at this question. Anyway the segment was entertaining and from an unknown source I was told that Dre was sitting in the back with Scott Hall and they came up with this gimmick.

    Overall I’d say this is subpar OSWP episode from what i expect. Dre is in quite the complaining streak and Robert is still lacks credibility from taking over the show. However Black Cat is still trying to keep this thing going at a strong level and he always delivers. **1/4
