We look at his Madison Square Garden feud with Superstar Billy Graham, pro wrestling at the Omni in Atlanta, Dusty Rhodes on TBS and the role pro wrestling made in the early history of cable television, as well as the famous angle where Ole Anderson & Ivan Koloff kicked off their feud with Rhodes that set cable records.

We look at the famous Ole Anderson interview after turning on Dusty Rhodes and why their angle is so fondly remembered, The last Tangle in Tampa, the night that cable television changed the history of pro wrestling, the end of Roy Shire’s promotion, and the second world title run.

Tuesday Daily Update

— WWE announced that they will report their second quarter 2015 financials on Thursday, July 30th. Vince McMahon and George Barrios will host the usualconference call that day at 11:00 a.m. ET to go over everything.

— Statement from Clutch City Productions on Alberto El Patron no-showing their card in Pasadena, Texas over the weekend without notice:

We have received word from Alberto’s camp and were provided with information as to why he did not appear at the “Bustin for Autism” event last night in Houston (Pasadena) TX. Although we have documentation that will clearly define the situation in full we are choosing to keep this a private matter at this time. However, we are anticipating that Alberto’s camp will release a statement and take action to rectify the situation.

AAA told Mediotiempo yesterday that Alberto is at home and doing fine.

— At a media scrum over the weekend, CM Punk said that Duke Roufus is telling him his best area right now is his striking. Which may say what a lot of people figured about his jiu jitsu.

— UFC announced Joseph Benavidez vs. Henry Cejudo at UFC 191 on September 5th in Las Vegas. Presumably, the winner gets a title shot against the winner of the upcomimg Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson vs. John Dodson II fight for the flyweight title. Big, big step up in competition for Cejudo, but if he wins, then he’s absolutely ready for a title shot, as only Johnson and Dominick Cruz have defeated Benavidez in his entire career.

— Bruce Tharpe posted on Facebook that the NWA Classics Roku channel is now in the testing stage and should be ready before long.

— At the UFC Fan Expo, there was a Metro PCS-sponsored booth where fans could send a video message to Ronda Rousey. Cris Cyborg decided to make use of it. That’s actually pretty amusing.

— The Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling Podcast talked to Sam Shaw about just about everything you’d want to hear: His TNA release, TNA pay issues, the original of the Samuel Shaw gimmick, and much more. Quote on how the Samuel Shaw gimmick kind of slowly fizzled out:

I was pitching ideas left and right. I feel that maybe coming in and having such a strong presence as the character I was portraying it may have put me up against the wall from a creative sense, I was known as the “creepy bastard” and just the “creepy guy”. What was he going to do just creep on the knockouts and move on to the next one? It’s basically what a psycho does just repeats the same thing over and over again but I think there were so many different directions the character could have gone and I feel like there was so much longevity to the character and in a lot of ways the writers did too and that’s why they kept me around for so long.  They just didn’t have anything at the moment and they kept signing new guys and new talent was coming in and they were ready to move forward with other guys and I was sort of sitting at home not doing anything but was ready, willing and able to do something.

— On the newest episode of our friend Kris Zellner’s Exile on Badstreet podcast, Kris is joined by Graham Cawthon (The History of WWE) & Parv (Titans of Wrestling) to discuss the Battles of Bob Backlund from 1980-83 where we go over his opponents in depth.
