Some of their stories are funny and wild.

I follow some people on twitter that post some old random TV spots.  Dusty and Flair were obviously the best.

The latest one on WCCW was awesome. As that was my wheelhouse as a kid. Lot's of memories. Didn't learn anything new, but just fun to reminisce.

On a side note. Kevin looks like he's ageing bad. Reminds me of the old man from poltergeist.

Told more than once - back in the 70's as a kid, my grandpa worked Will Rodgers Coliseum - many wrestling events. 

I got to go behind the scenes, met many of the guys. Such stars as Fritz, Bruiser Brody, the Great Kabuki, The Sheik and Andre the Giant come to mind.

You ever hit the Sportatorium? If so, what was it like?

It's legend is amazing. Probably the most famous sh1thole of all time.

No, I've never actually been there. I was never really even a wrestling fan either, was just a perk of being my grandpa's kid back then. 

I knew it was staged, and the dudes were nice to us kids.
