Check out our Royal Rumble live coverage.
FGB Radio is back with a podcast about the Cauliflower Alley Club. “Double D” Dave Dutra (@DaveDutra) and Premier president John LaRocca (@LaRoccaJL) join me, as they did in Las Vegas, where we spent some time together at the 51st Cauliflower Alley Club.
We first start out with the news of Chyna’s passing which just hit as we started recording.
We talk about past CAC experiences by both Dutra and LaRocca who have been before. We talk about what has changed and what has stayed the same. I was there a day early, so I talk about the Bockwinkel blowout. We discuss the panels including the one on Minnesota wrestling with Larry “The Axe” Hennig, Greg Gagne, and Jim Brunzell and the broadcasting panel that should’ve been. We all have our thoughts on what went well and what didn’t go so well. What a star studded panel it was.
Then we talk about the banquet with great speeches by JJ Dillon, Arn Anderson, Jerry Lawler, Lance Russell, Paul Orndorff, and Trish Stratus. We quickly go over Ken Patera’s polarizing speech.

WWE is in the midst of attempting to push women’s wrestling harder than just about any time in recent memory. However, they’re not doing even close to as good of a job as they’ve done with their NXT brand, which featured Bayley and Sasha Banks in the main event at their last WWE Network special. From an emotional standpoint, that match was about as good as you’re going to get. Continue reading
