From 2013-2015 Robert Winfree hosted Everyone Loves a Bad Guy, an eclectic podcast dedicated to villainy across media. Robert and Pat Mullin look at the world of professional wrestling and he’s joined by Pat Mullin to talk about the bygone era of wrestling territories and the heels that drew heat and money across them. Original airdate July 11, 2014 for this Wrestling Territories Villains Discussion.
Formed in 1948, the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) was the largest governing body in professional wrestling. Under the control of the NWA Board of Directors (consisting of various prominent, regional promoters), the organization oversaw the NWA’s national territory system which recognized one world champion, participated in talent exchanges, and collectively protected the territorial integrity of member promotions. Unlike independent promotions, territories collaborate and recognize other member promotions. In 1993, the territories were reorganized following the withdrawal of World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW). As other territories left the organization, the NWA would discontinue its memberships in August 2012.

About Radulich in Broadcasting’s Beginnings
Mark Radulich has been an internet personality since 2004 with his Progressive Conservatism blog. He then took that blog to the airwaves and created a podcast for it. It then changed to PC Live. After that, he brought out the 411mania Ground and Pound Radio as well.
Also, Mark would partner up with another 411mania alum, Sean Comer, to create the movie franchise review podcast Long Road to Ruin and then Robert Cooper to create the metal album review podcast, The Metal Hammer of Doom. Robert Winfree then added his own podcast, Everybody Loves a Bad Guy. That’s when the Radulich in Broadcasting Network was born. Joining Winfree in having their own podcasts were super fans Jesse Starcher (Source Material). Finally, Winfree and Radulich added a weekly movie review show to the ever-growing lists of podcasts on the Network called Damn You Hollywood.
