In this edition Ryan and Mr. Firch take their first deep dive into Primetime Wrestling. We talk about the January 19, 1987 edition, featuring a lot of Hulk Hogan, even being mentioned in matches he’s not involved in like Poochie, kind of like how Hulk died on the way back to his home planet in August of 2015 and was never seen again. We also look at Don Muraco, Lanny Poffo’s leaping ability, Danny Spivey and Jimmy Jack Funk being the look-a-likes of a much better match and we take a very deep dive into the Rotundo family tree. Enjoy!
