Learning the Ropes with Lyla Alzado, Jimmy Garvin, Tully Blanchard, and ...

Here's one for ya. Back in the late 80's there was a syndicated TV show called 'Learning the Ropes'. It starred the late Lyle Alzado as a school principal during the day and a professional wrestler under a mask at night. Used to have cameo's from a bunch of old NWA guys like Jimmy Garvin, Tully Blanchard and Rock n Roll Express. Dr Death Steve Williams actually played the wrestler underneath the mask!

Yup, it was produced here in Canada and aired up here as well, and I remember the terribleness of it very well.
