Kris & David are guestless this week, as we discuss the week-plus that was August 3-10, 1991. We talk about Ric Flair and his pending arrival in the WWF, including how the big gold NWA World Heavyweight Title belt itself made its debut on TV in our week, long before Ric himself did. We also talk about Sid Justice allegedly overshadowing Hulk Hogan & The Ultimate Warrior, as well asJake Roberts teaching the Ultimate Warrior about “the dark side,” plus Lou Ferrigno signing with the WBF and various notes on the steroid scandal as it stood at the time. We also talk about the birth of the G1 Climax including the legendary Big Van Vader vs. Keiji Mutoh match, a major SWS show featuring WWF talent, the birth of W*ING, Atlantis vs. Blue Panther drawing big at Arena Mexico, Cactus Jack & Eddie Gilbert changing the independent wrestling world forever, Leatherface in Memphis, and Joe Pedicino having quite a week, plus in WCW, we talk about all the major issues with Jim Herd at the time, running off what was true and what was false, plus so much more. This is as on-brand an episode of Between the Sheets as you can get, so LISTEN NOW!!!!!!!
