"I'd like to talk to Tom" - 1988 angle of the year
Considered by many to be the wrestling angle of the year in 1988. Ultra violent in it's day and still pretty hardcore by today's standards. This got Continental in trouble with the local TV station. Lady Mystic comes to the podium in tears. She's apparently been beaten by Dirty White Boy for last week's hair cut. She begs again and again for Tom Prichard to come to the desk. When Tom does finally show up all hell breaks loose. If you haven't seen it, I won't spoil it. Largely forgotten today, this was the talk of tape traders across the country in '88. This whole feud - to me- shows what really underutilized talents Anthony and Prichard were. One last note, White Boy did this angle again years later in Smoky Mountain with Tim Horner in the Tom Prichard role.
