E42: JFK Assassination (Part Two)

November 26, 2018

President John Fitzgerald Kennedy ushered in an era of hope in the United States, working to mend relations with the Soviet Union, refusing to invade Laos and Cuba, and promising to further social benefits for all Americans. Before Kennedy could begin to make good on his promises, he was killed while visiting Dallas, Texas, allegedly by a lone gunman named Lee Harvey Oswald. Since 1963, the world has scrutinized the assassination of JFK and the subsequent killing of Oswald, implying that the truth is far darker than what the official story alleges.

In the second part of our JFK Assassination series, we run down the tragic events that took place on the day of November 22, 1963, resulting in the deaths of President John F. Kennedy, and just days later, Lee Harvey Oswald.

November 12, 2018

On November 9, 1997, the face of the professional wrestling industry changed forever when Vince McMahon, owner of the WWF, pulled a fast one on his biggest star of the era, Bret "Hitman" Hart. The events are now known as the Montreal Screwjob, and have been widely debated by professional wrestling fans and conspiracy theorists alike. Did Vince McMahon truly screw Bret Hart, or was Hart a victim of his own ego? Find out as Matt, Kayla, and our special guest Adam Contant from the Wrasslun Show Network tackle the Montreal Screwjob.

Thanks again to Adam for being a guest on Big, If True. You can find great content from the Wrasslun Show Network every day of the week over at https://wrasslunshownetwork.com/, or on SoundCloud at https://soundcloud.com/wrasslunshow.

E40: Pro Wrestling Conspiracies

November 5, 2018

The professional wrestling industry dates back to the 1800's, where travelling carnivals built on traditional strongman acts. Despite the modernization of the wrestling industry, many of its carnival roots can still be observed through the many hucksters, cheats, and opportunists working within it. We cover a small sample of pro wrestling's less savory stories, including the shady events surrounding the death of Bruiser Brody, writer Vince Russo's alleged role as a double agent, and the possibility that "Macho Man" Randy Savage had a secret affair with his bosses teenage daughter.
