Going to the Garden
LSPS Season 1 Episode 11
We’re back! We sincerely hope you’re all doing as well as you can. We understand how hard times are right now, and that’s why we’re here: to try to put a smile on your face. On this episode of Last Stop Penn Station, it is the holy grail. For Cary, for Ian, for ROH and NJPW, it was the MSG G1 Supercard. The night itself was absolutely magical, but the months and days leading up to the event was full of incredible ups and downs. Cary and Ian take you through Cary’s early days getting acclimated to MSG, his foray into cocaine and the ridiculous abundance of Grateful Dead shows, and more. What happened when Ian nearly signed with WWE just before the MSG show? What happened when Vince McMahon tried to block the show from happening all together? It’s all here, on episode 11 of Last Stop Penn Station!
Last Stop Penn Station is for mature audiences only. The audio or visual media within may contain offensive language and discussions regarding sex, sexuality, drugs, addiction, rock & roll, and succeeding despite the odds!
