#303 – “The Narcissist” Lex Luger

The Old School Wrestling Podcast takes a look at the incredible six month run from January to July 1993 featuring “The Narcissist” Lex Luger and review his last television matched as the evil man with the metal plate in his arm before he would board the helicopter that would take him to the USS Intrepid to bodyslam the Yokozuna and save the United States of America from Japan. In the second half, they look at an article from a 1969 issue of INSIDE WRESTLING called “I WAKE UP SCREAMING,” a story about Don Savage and the nightmares he experiences after facing SKULL MURPHY in a professional wrestling match.

#302 – The York Foundation

This week on the OSWP, Dre and the Black Cat take some time to talk about the fascinating group of characters from early 90s World Championship Wrestling that formed the group called “The York Foundation.” Originally centered around Alexandra York, Michael Wallstreet, this stable of wrestlers looked to skyrocket to the top of WCW with an infallible computer program that would tell them how to defeat everyone in their way. Unfortunately, there would be a few bugs in the program and they would only end up the WCW Six-Man Tag Team champions. They also do a Quick 123 discussing the greatest factions of all time (outside of the obvious). Please support the OSWP by joining the OSWP Patreon!

#301 – Sting v DDP, April 26, 1999, WCW Monday Nitro

Dre and the Black Cat take a look back at one of the most bizarre times in professional wrestling history – the year of 1999 in World Championship Wrestling. With the competition taking the lead, WCW was forced to adapt and attempt to figure out what they needed to do to get the fans to turn the channel back to TNT. This lead to some of the most illogical and non-sensical wrestling ever created. Thankfully there are some wonderful gems in this mess, including the match we are going to review tonight, a WCW World Heavyweight title match between the new champion, DDP, and the WCW legend, Sting.
