Episode 3: Keith Elliott Greenberg

Hello, wrestling fans! It’s time for Episode #3 of Shut Up and Wrestle, with Brian R. Solomon!

This one is very special to me, as my guest is someone I’ve known and worked with for 22 years, and whose work I’ve known for much longer than that: Keith Elliott Greenberg. You may know him from the pages of WWF/WWE/Raw Magazine, etc.; his best-selling biographies of Freddie Blassie, Superstar Billy Graham and Ric Flair; or his most recent book, Too Sweet: Inside the Indie Wrestling Revolution. Trust me, this is one you won’t want to miss!

Listen in as I catch up with an old friend and fellow old-school wrestling fanatic!

Episode 2: Blue Meanie

Hello, wrestling fans! It’s time for the second episode of Shut Up and Wrestle, with Brian R. Solomon!

This time, my guest is the ECW icon and lifelong wrestling fan Brian Heffron, better known as The Blue Meanie! Can’t talk to the Meanie without touching on the Land of Extreme and how he rose to fame there, but we actually spend most of our time talking about his years as a fan following the WWF and NWA, and dreaming of one day being part of the action.

Today, Shut Up and Wrestle, like Pepperland, goes BLUE!

Episode 1: Stu Saks

Hello, wrestling fans! It’s the long-awaited first episode of Shut Up and Wrestle, with Brian R. Solomon!

To kick things off, I had a chance to have a long chat with the legendary (and elusive) long-time publisher of Pro Wrestling Illustrated and it’s sister magazines, Stu Saks!

I’m glad Stu took some time out from his much-deserved retirement to look back on his career and just being a fan. If you were into those old-school magazines, you’re gonna love this glimpse behind the scenes of what made it all tick. Plus, Stu shares a bunch of stories of his early years as a fan, including being at MSG the night Bruno lost the title to Koloff (yes, you could hear a pin drop.)

I couldn’t ask for a better first guest, and I hope you’ll agree!
