A packed EX PLUS ALPHA edition of Retro Superplex for you this week! Martin and Justin talk about a surprisingly solid RAW where they continue to devalue everything that happened at Wrestlemania. They speculate on how the WWE main roster suddenly actually has a pretty decent collection of wrestlers with the likes of Natalya and Paige as well as the NXT ladies. Then they talk some indie wrestling news before talking about some of their favorite tag teams. Finally they pay tribute to the anniversary of the passing of one of the most underappreciated wrestling talents of the last 20 years: Sweet ‘N’ Sour Larry Sweeney. They speak about his battles with Bipolar Disorder but also his amazing skills both in an out of the ring, that laugh, that classic wrestling heel demeanor, and just what an incredibly talented guy Larry was. Martin also shares some memories of Larry and you can see some great Larry Sweeney promos after the break in the show notes.
