On this edition, I talk to Dave LaGreca, host of SiriusXM's daily wrestling talk show, Busted Open Radio. We talk about the current wrestling scene, the NJPW G-1 Climax tournament, ROH and NJPW selling out Madison Square Garden and just the aura of the Garden in general, and how Dave keeps up with all the wrestling. We also spend a huge chunk of time talking about Dave growing up an 80s metalhead, and all the early shows he's seen, with great stories about Metallica, Alice Cooper, KISS and more.
If you're in the NYC area and are going to Summerslam this weekend, make sure to party with Dave at the pre-party right around the corner from Barclays Center. Here is the info:
