From the Vault - Legends and Champions Episode 1
As today is Andy's 40th birthday we thought what better way to celebrate then to launch a new From the Vault series and one of his personal favourites. Legends and Champions was a 25 episode series focusing on the classic era of professional wrestling, hosted by both Lee Tyers and Andy Evans, each episode either focused on a performer, a tag team, a show or something else. This was combined with interviews from classic superstars and performers.  For the first time since it's original airing all 25 episodes are going to be re-released on this podcast stream, giving a whole new generation the opportunity to listen to this well loved but forgotten show.  On episode 1, Lee and Andy are joined by former WWE and WCW superstar Terri Runnels.
