Kris & David are back with our 6th Anniversary episode of Between the Sheets....that's right: SIX FULL YEARS! Hard to believe, isn't it? This show was also a Patron-requested show by Jayce Naccarato, as we discuss the week-plus that was July 18-27, 1992. We open with the coverage of the explosive Penthouse Magazine article on Vince McMahon and the WWF, which touched on all the major scandals that Titan Sports had on their name at the time. We also talk about the Natural Disasters winning the WWF Tag Titles, new and old faces coming into the WWF, ticket sales for SummerSlam at Wembley Stadium, and steroid use in wrestling. We then go to around the world for all the news and results from our week before coming back to the United States to talk about the end of Joe Pedicino’s Superstars of Wrestling block in Atlanta, Rock ’n’ Roll Express reuniting in both SMW & the USWA, Robert Fuller making his SMW debut, confusion over the identity of the original Gorgeous George after the death of George Arena, and the Bill Watts era in WCW, which is really getting cranked up and is always fun to talk about. A very strong show, even with all our difficulties in getting it completed, so you know what to do....LISTEN NOW!!!!

Content Warning: The portion of the first segment devoted to Jeff Savage’s Penthouse feature on the WWF scandals contains frank discussion of the sexual assault allegations contained in the article. If you have any concerns that this could be triggering or otherwise upsetting to you, then you may want to skip directly from the end of Dave Meltzer’s “Week in Review” to the main WWF section that starts at 1:07:13.
