As an interesting bit of quirky history, it even touches on how a book designed to reinforce the authority and ceremony of the Church of England (and largely reviled by the extreme Puritan seperatists) eventually became the preferred version of the extreme Puritan seperatists. Once they had seperated and set up their own government in America they discovered how much more useful a bible that promoted submitting to a central authority was over their old bible that promoted resisting central authority...since they were now the central authority.
I never really knew too much about Jerry Lawler's promotion, interesting stuff.
Here's a good one featuring a fun old school promo between face and heel of a run down promotion about mid way through the 5 part episode.
The Face "The Golden Angel" is a masked wrestler in a gold body suit who comes to the ring wearing a white cape and wings.
The Heel "Hammerlock Grange" is a big hairy monster played by Richard Karron...the perpetual TV Guest Star whenever the script called for a "big hairy monster"
Ray Walston is a ton of fun to watch as the promotor / ring announcer Smilin' Tommy Reese.
Usually, the infamous exploits of the so-called Golden Age of Piracy of the 17th and early 18th century get located in the Caribbean and the Spanish Main in popular belief. In fact, the richest prize of the era was taken in the Indian Ocean by a man who did not quite reach the posthumous popularity of buccaneers like Morgan, Kidd or Blackbeard Teach, but, for a while, shook British trade with India to its very foundation – the Arch Pirate “Long Ben Avery”. But read more on:

Then the sound guy hits paydirt. The next sound follows a big swing and a miss by a visiting batter -- a good old Ric Flair Woo!.
From that point on the crowd was into it. Fans in one section would Woo, then fans in another section would Woo back and pretty soon it was non stop Woos..like Wooing in the round...like the overlapping sounds of crickets at night only instead of chirps its Ric Flair Woos...for 3 straight innings the Woos never stopped. At any pause the sound guy would hit the clip again and another Woo wave would sweep the stadium.
All it took to get the fans into the game was a Woo.
That shit is gold.
