MLW Radio brings fans a ton of outstanding listening choices every week. Names like Bruce Prichard, Jim Cornette, Tony Schiavone, Ric Flair, Eric Bischoff, Hacksaw Jim Duggan and more have found a podcast home at MLW Radio before. Now the podcasting giant is adding another exciting program to their lineup.
It was recently announced that JJ Dillon will be starting a podcast with Rich Bocchini as co-host. Fans might know Bocchini better as Rich Brennan and probably remember JJ Dillon from just about every 4 Horseman promo package ever. But as Bocchini hyped his upcoming show he revealed the new podcast won’t just stop at stories about Ric, Arn, Ole, and Tully.
“We’re going to get into a little bit of everything really” co-host Rich Bocchini said. “JJ — forty years in the business starting out like the rest of us as a fan but then starting out in the business as a referee for eight years before he became a wrestler. He went on to wrestle more than 3,000 matches. A lot of people just associate JJ as the leader of the 4 Horsemen, but he’s got such a wealth of knowledge in such a deep career history that there is so much more that we could get into.”
“Obviously we’ll play the hits” Bocchini continued. “We’ll play Horsemen stuff, we’ll get into his time with WWE as the VP of talent relations, we’ll talk to him about his time in WCW when he came back after WWE. But obviously the stuff with Crockett — so much to get into there. And then even going back to when he started out when Bruno Sammartino gave him a break early-on and learning from Bruno.”
“A lot of stuff we’re going to get into […] I grew up a huge Crockett fan, a huge NWA fan, and loved the Horsemen as much as I loved to hate them. JJ was such a big part of that obviously and for me to be able to sit down every week and spend an hour or two talking to JJ that’s worth it in an of itself. So it’s gonna be cool and I can’t wait to get going with it.”
