Locals to Legends Wrestling Radio w/"Mr. Sensational" Leslie Jones Pt. 2

Following up on last week's popular episode, 'Mr. Sensational' Leslie Jones joins Gene once again to finish their discussion of the IWF.  This week covers the most recent incarnation of IWF and Leslie TELLS ALL....this is the absolute shoot truth about what brought it back and why it went away....perhaps for good this time.  There's also a lot of discussion (and at times debate) about booking philosophy such as booking "names" and whether it's important for a wrestling promotion to have television in this day and age. While this episode actually ended up being longer than last week's episode, it's still an interesting ride hearing how everything came together for the IWF to return and the obstacles the promotion faced along the way...and when Leslie realized the wrestling business was a different world in 2015 than it was in 1999.  Leslie opens up and gives the shoot explanation of the final episode of IWF Slam and how the television station felt about the show going away.  Is this the end for Mr. Sensational? Is the IWF dead?  Tune in to this week's episode and find out!

Locals to Legends Wrestling Radio w/"Mr. Sensational" Leslie Jones Pt. 1

This week Gene is joined by wrestling manager and promoter Leslie Jones better known to most fans as Mr. Sensational.  On this episode, Gene and Leslie discussed how Leslie got into the wrestling business and the story of the IWF.  A lot of interesting insight into the business end of things and a lot of things revealed that fans and wrestlers alike may not have known or realized back at the time it all took place.  A long conversation but a LOT of ground is covered here ranging from 1997 to around 2003.  Next week, Leslie returns for Part 2 to discuss the IWF revival from this past year that didn't quite pan out the way many had hoped.  Be sure to stick around til the very end of the episode to hear what Leslie was doing between the time IWF shut down to the time it was brought back this past year.
