Bowden & Baum discuss the underrated greatness of “Golden Boy” Chick Donavan and babyface “Dream Machine” Troy Graham, as well as how two Sunshine State mainstays helped turn up the heat upon arrival in Memphis, and why the personal nature of the Jerry Lawler vs. Jimmy Hart issue clicked with fans, leading to a summer of dream matches—and boffo box office—for Jarrett Promotions.
