Kurt Brown (a.k.a. Vandal Drummond) and Fredo Esparza return with the latest episode of Lucha Clasica as we look back and remember the careers of lucha legend Ruben Juarez and the great Bobby "The Brain" Heenan. 90 minutes looking back at their careers.

We discuss Ruben Juarez time in the Los Angeles, CA territory in the early 70s where he had a memorable feud with Ernie "The Big Cat" Ladd. Plus Juarez career in Mexico as a wrestler, matchmaker and promoter including his time as one of Mexico's top Light Heavyweights during the 1960s and his feud with Los Espantos. We also talk about some of Juarez thoughts on promoting and matchmaking.

We go off-topic from lucha libre and remember one of the all-time great wrestling managers Bobby "The Brain" Heenan from the first time we first saw him, managing pre-WWF the likes of Nick Bockwinkle, his WWF run as a manager and then joining the commentary team with Gorilla Monsoon, plus heading to WCW.

This was a fun show to do and we also preview upcoming Lucha Clasica episodes!
