Episode 89: They Call Me Booker

Episode 89 of Breaking Kayfabe is working strictly babyface this episode as we offer a comparison & contrast of the legendary babyface runs in the state of Florida of Eddie Graham, Jack Brisco & Dusty Rhodes! The Booker speaks about his…uh, new book! We feature a match from Montreal in 1985 as the Rougeau Bros face off against Jimmy & Ronnie Garvin, and…we look at what possibly could be the worst film we have ever reviewed. But there is lots of nudity, so Win-Win!
