July Classic Wrestling Marathon is coming to Wrestling Observer!

This year I will again do a marathon of 31 podcasts over the course of 31 days in the annual DragonKingKarl July Classic Wrestling Marathon at This year's theme will be wrestlers who made me a fan of pro wrestling or kept me a fan of pro wrestling. It will cover a huge spectrum of wrestlers from the enhancement guys you never thought you would hear a whole show about to luchadores to Japanese high-fliers to brawling monsters.

 I hope you will support the July Classic Wrestling Marathon in one of several ways:

  • First and obviously, you need a subscription to the website.  It is very affordable and my show is just one of MANY podcasts on the site but the one of the biggest reasons to subscribe is because it is the home of THE publication of all wrestling publications- the Wrestling Observer Newsletter by Dave Meltzer.  Stop reading other cut and paste websites perversions of what Dave said and read and hear what he REALLY says.
  • You can support me personally by ordering a Super Stern Stick 16gb Flash drive.  They will be discontinued at the end of this month.  All the ordering information is on the right side of the page or in the post below this one.
Thank you!

This is no gimmick... Things are changing

The Super Stern Stick Flashdrive will soon be dropped.  The end of July is the date.  I don't want to brag but the 16gb USB Flashdrive is really a steal at $20 with free shipping world wide.  I say this without fear of sounding too full of myself because tons of the research on the flashdrive was done by other truly amazing wrestling historians and I'm just the middle man distributing the information for basically the cost of the flashdrive and postage and a few dollars for myself.

Those few dollars are now kind of important as I am aiming for an August (or there-about) launch of my mega-website/podcast/videocast pop culture website When It Was Cool.  It is taking lots and time, work, and expense to ground level build this monster.  The sale of those flashdrives is what is funding the start-up costs.

The flashdrives contain about 500 text or pdf files dealing with lots of pro wrestling history and martial arts.  There are tens of thousands of match results, old clippings, old articles, old fan newsletter for the 60's through the 80's.  The entire run of the old DragonKing Press Newsletter which dealt with old pro wrestling and history.  That, in and of itself, I've been told is worth the cost.

But in addition to that, there are almost 500 podcast covering everything imaginable about pro wrestling history including several series such as the history of the NWA World title, the history of pro wrestling in the United States, the history of wrestling action figures, and a two hour audio documentary about the old NWA Southeastern - Continental wrestling promotion.  Of course, there are hundreds of Q&A shows about pro wrestling history, interviews with people like Jeff Jarrett, Robert Fuller, Tom Pritchard, and many more.  There is a smattering of off topic goodies as well.

If you haven't yet purchased a Super Stern Stick flashdrive please consider doing so.  If you have one already and would just like to toss a donation toward the start up of When It Was Cool, well that would be amazing too.  The links to purchase are below and remember- free shipping anywhere in the world.  Thank you!- Karl

DragonKing Dark - Episode 015 - Old Timey Obituaries and Corpse Eating Cats

Available for free at After Dark Radio Show.

I know this seems an odd topic for our show but I assure you, if you are into the odd and arcane then this is certainly the show for you.

Unlike modern, dry, informational obituary notification, people in the late 1800’s wanted to tell more of a tale in their reports of dead loved ones.

This is far and away my favorite show I have done thus far for After Dark. Stick around for tales from the National Police Gazette which include CORPSE EATING CATS and terrific descriptive BEAR ATTACK stories.  The National Police Gazette was really something else.  I promise this one will leave you in stitches. - For the free download link please visit
