Kris is joined by David Bixenspan (davidbix.com and f4wonline.com) and Dylan Hales (Wrestling Culture podcast) to discuss the demise of the Universal Wrestling Federation. We discuss the buildup to the buyout and how Jim Crockett Jr. & Dusty Rhodes took was once maybe the best promotion in the country and turned it into a complete afterthought. Listen to us talk about every thing under the UWF name, especially the sleaziness of Mike Boyette & Gary Young!!

Kris Zellner had me and Dylan Hales on the second episode of his Exile on Badstreet podcast to talk about Jim Crockett Promotions' purchase of Bill Watts' UWF in 1987 and the fallout that quickly ensued. I had a lot of fun doing this and it came out really well, though it's a long one. If you're interested in the topic, make sure to give Kris some love and go check it out.
