Roddy keeps talking about being blackballed in the early 80's. if you look at his career record there is no room for this to happen. whats he talking about or is he making stuff up?

Maybe "blackballed" is his way of spinning somewhere he wanted to work very badly that wouldn't use him, so he had to go somewhere else.

Other than that. I got nothing.

He released a "shoot" called "Blackballed" years ago.  I watched it but don't remember the details.  I just remember thinking it was a waste of my time.  But if anyone has it, maybe they can glean something from it.

Ok i looked around online and Roddy has said he was fired from Georgia championship wrestling in 1982 and was blackballed from wrestling in the US for months. But that Ric Flair took him down to mexico to get work.

But he was wrestling in Georgia and Mid Atlantic at the same time and he did not have months off from wrestling. he just went back to Mid Atlantic full time. does not add up.

Don't let the facts get in the way of a good story.  As the presenter for Sgt. Slaughter one year at CAC, Roddy talked about how wonderful it was for Sarge to have been a visitor to the White House when Nixon invited him there after the Iranian hostages were released.   Many brains exploded trying to rationalize the complete disconnect on the timeline.  

Greg Oliver may have caused a slow meltdown in Roddy's Utopia when he pointed out to him that his "debut" match against Larry Hennig was actually like 9-10 months into his career.

Too much Coke during His time with Tommy Rich may have caused all of His memory " issues".
