"Classy" Freddie Blassie holds a unique place in wrestling history as one of the most despised and beloved personalities of all time. It was a no-brainer for Awesome Truth to tackle his autobiography Listen, You Pencil Neck Geeks, especially since it was cowritten by our friend Keith Elliot Greenberg. After a brief introduction, Keith returns to the podcast for a conversation on Blassie's in-ring career, his memorable moments as a manager, and what it was like to interview Vince McMahon. This is an episode that even pencil neck geeks won't want to miss.
