<p><strong>The following is a free show.</strong></p> <p>It has&nbsp;taken a little over a year, but the Portland Wrestlecast has returned with part two of our interview with Larry Oliver, son&nbsp;of the late Rip "The Crippler" Oliver who passed away in 2020.</p> <p>In this episode, we go back to 1990 when a young Oliver broke into pro wrestling and became the target of his father's longtime rival, the maniacal&nbsp;Billy Jack Haynes who had just turned heel. That year also featured the debut of Taylor Made Medina, who would go on to be Terri Power and Tori in WWE.</p> <p>Larry talks about his time as a rookie wrestler in Portland, his dad's transition to life after wrestling,&nbsp;what it was like growing up as Rip's son&nbsp;in the kayfabe era of professional wrestling, and things his family had to do to both protect themselves and the pro wrestling business.&nbsp;</p> <p>Enjoy the return of the Portland Wrestlecast!</p> <p>{radioShow free/PWCLARRYOLIVERPT2.mp3} {membership 4}</p>
