Kris & David are back with another episode of Between the Sheets, as we discuss the week that was September 8-14, 1995. We talk about the inaugural battle of the "Monday Night War,” as Nitro went head-to-head with Raw for the very first time and it was quite the pair of shows. We talk about the first ever Hulk Hogan vs. Lex Luger singles match, Sabu going wild on Alex Wright, Scott Norton being made to look like a goof in his first match back, and much more in a very fun WCW section. We also talk about New Japan being on a collision course with the UWFi en route to their Tokyo Dome show on October 9th, Tarzan Goto wanting a piece of Rickson Gracie, AAA trying to make new stars to replace departing headliners like Mascara Año Dos Mil & Universo Dos Mil, Marco Ruas: King of the Streets being the baddest motherfucker on the planet for at least one night in the UFC as he runs the table at UFC 7 in Buffalo, Cactus Jack & Buddy Landel cutting amazing promos in ECW & SMW respectively, MR. COREY getting physical in Memphis, the WWF losing their appeal of the verdict in the Jesse Ventura videotape royalties trial, and much more. This is a fantastic show, so don't miss out!!!!!
