I would like to thank Brian Popkin for his article on Ricky Steamboat. I felt that it was very well done. It was refreshing to read an article about a wrestler that does not involve drugs, politics, or spousal abuse.

Agreed, great article.

But, what's a "Broadway" match?

Glad you guys enjoyed my article. Steamboat was my favorite wrestler, so it was only natural that my article came across with a positive tone.

I think that a Broadway match is the insider term for a one hour long match. Thus my referring to his match with Tully as a 60 minute Broadway match was redundant. I don’t use only insider terms because I want to make my articles accessible to all readers. Steamboat was famous for these Broadway matches. These were regular matches that lasted one hour and required a lot of stamina and earned a lot of respect in the locker room for both workers.

A quick question for you Brian. Was the material in your article based on researched stories and facts, or did you get to have a sit down with the man himself?

Not that it really matters. Just found it interesting that the point of view ot the article was not based on "old stories" that have been told time and time again.

Anyway, great job!

Thanks Scooter,

I wish I could’ve done an interview with the man himself. If I was near North Carolina, I would’ve tried. But I got all of my information from internet sources. I read a lot of articles and interviews. The best interview I read was at www.mikemooneyham.com.

He was the author who wrote Sex, Lies, and Headlocks. I like how his interviews have hard-hitting questions and are more than puff pieces.

Broadway wouldn't just be limited to 60 minutes. Really, it refers to any overlong draw; Windham and Flair had 75 minute matches in 86, Funk and Brisco allegedly went 90 while Funk had the title back in the late 60's and early 70's. I'm not sure it was meant for, say, 30-minute ones, but I've seen people reference it to just about any time limit draw.
