The Weekend Edition for 04/03/22

Every weekend, I like to share a curated list of retro & nostalgia-themed articles, stories, and posts that I’ve come across in the last week. It gives you a chance to grab a hot cup of coffee, tea, or cocoa, sit back and pass the time reading about the good old days. So with that in mind, here are some things I wanted to share with you this week.

I’m going to start this Weekend Edition off by highlighting my latest entry into The Junk Food Files over at The Retro Network. In The Short Life of New Coke, I briefly run down the story of the launch and quick demise of New Coke in the ’80s. Being as how you’re here at Retro Ramblings, I know it’s something you’d be interested in so go check it out.

And since we’re in the middle of Wrestlemania weekend, it would be rude of me to not highlight an older post of mine at TRN where I detail my Favorite Wrestlemania Memories. And while I’m on the subject, you can also check out my post, Saturday Night Suspense: The Night Hulk Hogan Fought Paul Orndorff in a Cage! at TRN as well. And further down in this column, you’ll find plenty more old Wrestling nostalgia to celebrate the Wrestlemania season.

To close this Weekend Edition out, I leave you with highlights of the greatest Wrestlemania match of all-time featuring Randy “Macho Man” Savage vs. Rick “The Dragon” Steamboat from Wrestlemania 3 in 1987.
