WWE Hall of Famer Don Muraco is proud to announce the launch of “Don Muraco’s Magnificent Podcast”.
WrestleZone was issued the following press release that details the new show, available on all major podcast platforms and YouTube starting Thursday, May 20.
The beach bum, the original Rock and WWE Hall of Famer Don Muraco is proud to announce the official launch of a new weekly show, Don Muraco’s Magnificent Podcast, available right now to download on all major podcast platforms and to watch on Don Muraco’s Magnificent Podcast YouTube channel.
Every week, The Magnificent Muraco will hop in the time machine and head back to the glory days of pro wrestling to take a deep dive on a fellow wrestler, in-ring rivalry or major event that was instrumental to his success.
For the very first episode, Don focuses on his former manager, tag team partner, personal friend and prankster extraordinaire, Harry “Mr Fuji” Fujiwara. Don talks about Fuji’s life as a petty thief before wrestling, Fuji’s most famous tag team partners, the WWF Tuesday Night Titans skits including Fuji Vice and their failed stand up comedy act, Fuji falling asleep on stage during the WWE Hall of Fame 2007 ceremony and, of course, all of the pranks and ribs that made Fuji so infamous in locker rooms across America… even the ones where he cooked dogs and fed them to unsuspecting victims.
As one of the all-time greats, not only was Don Muraco one of the finest promos, heels and champions in wrestling history, his 25-year career saw him headline in territories as diverse as Hawaii, Florida, Portland, AWA, Los Angeles, Mid-Atlantic, Georgia, WWF, All Japan, New Japan, WAR, Stampede and even ECW as one of its earliest Heavyweight Champions. As well as a litany of championship accomplishments – including holding the WWF Intercontinental Title for 541 days – Muraco also feuded with a who’s who of wrestling royalty, including: “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, Bob Backlund, “Superfly” Jimmy Snuka, Dusty Rhodes and Dick Murdoch, Pat Patterson, Barry Windham, Jack Brisco, Tito Santana, Pedro Morales and so many others – and he has great stories on them all and so many more!
New episodes of Don Muraco’s Magnificent Podcast will debut every Thursday.
