The gang takes a break from wrestler retrospectives for a seasonally appropriate spotlight on WCW's midsummer classic: The Great American Bash! While we've had a few match picks from the Bash on episodes past, it just felt right to devote an entire discussion to this thoroughly nostalgic - and thoroughly WCW - high concept. After a bit of history and reminiscence, we turn our attention to three representative exemplary matches each from a different edition of the prestigious event. Greg is on deck first, offering a United States Championship defense that would've been right at home on our last episode. Next, Tim makes the case for an overlooked jewel of a tag team bout... problematic iconography notwithstanding. And finally, Jenny closes us out in upstanding fashion with a World Heavyweight Championship showdown of superheroic proportions (which also incidentally completes our coverage of a certain trilogy of classic matches)! All this and we barely scratch the surface of GAB's grand lineage. Could this be a Talk'n WCW tradition in the making?? Well, we'd be remiss in our duties if you weren't left a little wil'-eyed and wonderin'!
On the newest Saturday Special, Scott & Dr. G recap this past week's Powerrr, which was Day 1 of the Champions Series. Who scored points, who's getting shut out and Is Murdoch still in Nick Aldis' head? Enjoy your coffee and the newest episode of the Saturday Special, the #1 NWA Podcast in America!

There It Is!) co-host, and a true Titan of Wrestling, Kelly Nelson aka Ricky Jackson on the show to discuss one of their mutually favorite times in pro wrestling, the World Wrestling Federation 1978-1987. They are discussing their picks for #25-#21 on this first of a five part series on the Best WWF Matches between 1978-1987. Marty leads off with the match that started it all! It is the match review that got Kelly’s attention and had him extend the invitation to become the Teen Titan! The rest as they say is podcasting history. Kelly brings a lot of Titans of Wrestling Love on this show with Andre vs Hogan, Fuji & Saito vs Strongbows and a bloody match between Larry Z & Ivan Pustki. It is not just Titans nostalgia there is some Tag Teams Back Again (Whoomp! There It Is) nostalgia when the Can-Am Connection clashes with The Dream Team! All this and much, much more!
