In 1974, JR kicked off his journey in the wrestling business working for “Cowboy” Bill Watts…today Bill calls to reminisce about their time at Mid-South, OU football, and Bill’s legendary leadership strategies. Plus: putting over legends Bruno Sammartino, Dusty Rhodes, and the great Ernie Ladd.

But first: ahead of his IWGP United States Championship bout with Juice Robinson, “The American Nightmare” Cody discusses NJPW’s continued expansion into the US. We’re dissecting the stacked card at Fighting Spirit Unleashed and the rise of Jay White.
