‘Dr. D’ David Schultz may be one of the most controversial figures in professional wrestling. For those who don’t remember, in 1984 he was involved in an incident with ABC News reporter John Stossel. He shares the story on this week’s podcast and of course, has more details in his new book Don’t Call Me Fake: The Real Story of ‘Dr. D’ David Schultz. You can get a copy here:
Schultz is headed to SICW on Saturday, May 19 in East Carondelet, Illinois. Promoter Herb Simmons joins us on the podcast to talk more about the event, which features the Bruiser Brody Memorial Battle Royal and celebrates the 59th anniversary of Wrestling at the Chase.

Chris Hargas has worked hard on the indy scene for the past 15 years. He recently won the SICW heavyweight championship and is a mainstay in three other independent wrestling companies. Hargas wrestles for Stride Pro Wrestling, IWA Productions and USA Championship Wrestling.
We talk more about his training, his work in the ring and why he gets into the squared circle week in and week out. Check out his website and watch some of his matches around the country. Chris is a great performer in the ring and a heck of a guy outside of it.
You can catch Chris live in action Saturday, June 3 at the next Stride Pro Wrestling show in Marion, Illinois.
My friend Heath Hatton is back for another episode. This time it’s a road trip discussion as we were headed back to southern Illinois after an evening of wrestling action in the St. Louis area. Hatton was part of the Bruiser Brody Memorial Battle Royal for Southern Illinois Championship Wrestling in East Carondelet, Illinois.
Hatton also wrestled in a six-man tag team match Saturday night, picking up the win for his team. I tagged along to watch the show backstage. Also on hand for the event, WWE Hall of Famer Abdullah the Butcher and Brody’s widow Barbara Goodish.
Besides recapping the evening of wrestling, Hatton goes into great detail about the Stride Pro Wrestling school he created. There’s an open house Tuesday, May 23 at the Illinois Star Centre Mall in Marion. Learn more here. Hatton also talks more about the future, which is extremely bright for the company.
