Episode 11: Are You a Man or a Rat

Oh, rats! The legendary Nathaniel Whitlock drives by Kentucky Fried Rasslin’ to talk rasslin’, rats, and a little rock ‘n’ roll with Scott Bowden and The Great Brian Last™.

You’ll hear the incredible true story of how wrestling an alligator led to the nefarious manager’s big break in the business; background on Nate’s famous brother and his infamous first cousin; his ambitious idea to promote an AWA World title bout between Nick Bockwinkel and Jerry Lawler on a cruise ship sailing the Southern Seas; memories of managing future WWE stars The Godfather (Soul Taker) and The Undertaker (Master of Pain); recollections of trading shots with Stan “the Lariat” Hansen; and fond memories of getting rediscovered in his cab while picking up Northeast promoter Dennis Coralluzzo at Memphis International Airport.

“Wild and wooly” doesn’t do Episode 11 justice, so don’t you dare miss it!
