Steve and Kristin share some of their favorite stories from the ranch - the family nights of music, the hunts, Teddy Fowler, birthdays & anniversaries, and also a few of the things they don't miss AT ALL - like the incredible Texas heat, the bugs, and the 1500 mile journey each way. Steve's also answering your questions about the ranch, and contemplating the location of the future Broken Skull Ranch...because YES, the brand lives on!

Eric Embry trained with Lou Thesz, worked the Sportatorium with the Von Erichs, booked the Memphis territory with Jerry Lawler, had a helluva 5-minute title match with Jerry Jarrett, caught some serious heat for tearing down the World Class sign inside the squared circle, learned about human nature & psychology from Gary Hart, and was one of the first to spot the "it" factor in a young Dallas wrestler named Steve Williams (aka Steve Austin). And those are just SOME of the stories you'll hear in this incredible episode.
Wow! You guys sent in some doozies... but Steve Austin and Ted Fowler answered them all (or at least tried to - someone needs to brush up on their Ming Dynasty history)!

Plus, it's the return of that pesky woodpecker, the skunk relocation program, Al E. Gator's feeding time, and one big hassle at the Motel 6 deer stand.
Santino Marella is truly Italian (on his father's side), totally bought into Hulkamania as a kid, started taking Judo because that's the class that worked best in his mom's work schedule, was banned from Japan for a year, and abruptly retired from WWE due to his ongoing neck injuries and surgeries. He's plenty busy though - running his Battle Arts Academy, learning to hunt with a bow, working for Sports Net TV, and closely following the UFC and Ronda Rousey's return.
