Kris & David are joined by Al Getz (@AlGetzWrestling) to discuss the week in wrestling that was September 2-8, 1998. We talk about the WWF post-SummerSlam and what was going on there, as they were making some big money both on PPV and in merchandise sales. We also talk about Kurt Angle signing with the WWF, Tiger Ali Singh having a wild segment on a Saturday Night Raw special that also featured Jim Ross grilling Al Snow in an interesting interview. We then talk about The Great Kabuki “retiring” in IWA Japan, a CMLL referee assaulting a Box y Lucha reporter, Al's run in the office with Music City Wrestling and his thoughts on the late Bert Prentice, and Dave Brown getting disturbed by the shenanigans in Memphis Power Pro Wrestling, plus a wild WCW Monday Nitro featuring THE WARRIOR hanging The Disciple upside down in the locker room and lots more. This is a great show, so listen now!!!!!!
