This week we take a look back at one of our early episodes from the first year of the show. The wild and woolly history of professional wrestling in Texas, from Wild Bull Curry and the Funks to the Von Erichs and Stone Cold Steve Austin. We examine the facinating legacy of the wrestlers and promotions of the Lone Star State.
