Kris & David are guestless this week as we discuss the week that was January 8-14, 1988. We talk about The Main Event prime time Friday night special being made official for NBC on February 5th, including how huge that was for the wrestling business. We also talk about the alternate universe of Ted DiBiase as WWF Champion, Big Bubba Rogers seemingly signing with WWF and how pissed Dusty Rhodes was about that, Jack Tunney suspending The Islanders for kidnapping Matilda, Jerry Blackwell's Southern Championship Wrestling from Georgia ramping up its TV taping schedule, Shawn Michaels getting heat in Memphis as a heel (and not just as a heel), and just how much World Class stock Ken Mantell owned, plus JCP airing a big tease of Barry Windham joining the Horsemen among a lot of other tremendous clips from TV. This an an extremely fun show, so listen now!!!!!

Kris & David are joined by Beau James (@kingofkingsport) to discuss the weeks that were February 5-18, 1984, as we try and play catch up for missing some recent weeks. We talk about the death of David Von Erich, and just how huge of a story it was in so many ways, in what may very well be one of our greatest segments BTS ever. We also talk about the WWF, including their burgeoning expansion into St. Louis and other markets and the first big TV match between Iron Sheik and Sgt. Slaughter. We also talk about some big shows in New Japan, Satoru Sayama & Hisashi Shinma having big issues as the UWF looms, Canek bodyslamming Andre the Giant in Mexico, Tully Blanchard entering the Carolinas, Ole Anderson starting to promote in Baltimore, Mr. Wrestling II getting jealous of Magnum T.A., and tons more. This is one of the best shows we've ever done, so you know the drill.

Rank #5: FREE PATREON FLASHBACK: Herb Abrams’ UWF Supercut

Podcast cover
Read more

Two years ago, we released some of our personal favorite and most well-received shows we’ve ever done when we did a two-art deep dive on Herb Abrams and his UWF promotion for our Patreon backers. With VICE TV’s “Dark Side of the Ring” about to debut their documentary on the life and times of “Mr. Electricity,” we decided that now is the perfect time to release both episodes—combined in one file—so those of you who who have never tried out the Patreon can get an idea of what you’re missing. For dozens more shows like this, including our newest, which starts our series on Sabu's 1995 firing from ECW for double booking himself in NJPW, become a backer for just $5/month at Patreon.com/BetweenTheSheets.



By popular demand, it's here: Our deep dive on Herb Abrams' UWF, the OTHER startup that lit up the newsletters in 1990. For part one, we take a look at the first six months of coverage, including Herb claiming to have signed the very much dead Bruiser Brody, the wrestlers praising Herb's ability to pay reliably...until it stopped, the full story of TV job guy DAVEY MELTZER, SportsChannel America drama with Rob Russen's IWA, the Sammartinos' pessimism for the promotion, Herb's brush with Principal Edward Rooney, who the newsletters carried water for, 900 number suspensions, legal entanglements with the WWF, and MUCH more. One of our best shows to date, and there's still more to come.



It’s baaaaack! Kris and David return to cover Herb Abrams’ UWF from March 1991 through Herb’s untimely demise in 1996. Topics include everything from Herb taking over Mike Sawyer’s hotline, the NY State Athletic Commission shirking its duties when Herb didn’t pay wrestlers, all sorts of check bouncing, the disaster of a pay-per-view that was Beach Brawl, amazing Herb quotes, Steve Williams “shooting” on Steve Ray, Herb stiffing the Manatee Civic Center, everything you ever wanted to know about the Blackjack Brawl (including Dr. Death on The Tonight Show, an accidental musical cameo, and an interpretative reading of a letter that Herb wrote to MGM Grand management), Dave Meltzer and Steve Beverly’s conflicting views on covering Herb, Herb trying to get Mark Madden fired from his day job, and much, MUCH more. This somehow outdoes the last show. Enjoy!

Kris & David are joined by one of our Patrons, Tyler Gignac, who put down the $100 to sit in with us and discuss the week that was January 15-22, 1992. We talk about WCW Clash of the Champions XVIII in Topeka—the first big event under the Kip Frey regime—and all of the big happenings that night like Jesse Ventura’s debut, as well as how everyone seems happier in WCW since Jim Herd left. We also talk about New Japan planning the NWA Title tournament, the WWF getting TV in Japan, lots of future stars working for Universal Lucha Libre in Japan, Joel Goodhart going bankrupt and cancelling his final TWA “supershow,” Dennis Coralluzzo bringing out Jerry Lawler's "kids" on USWA TV, and last but not least, ROYAL RUMBLE ’92.

Kris & David are joined by Ian Riccaboni (@IanRiccaboni) to discuss the week that was May 13-19, 1998. We talk about a WILD week in WCW where Eric Bischoff reads a letter from Jerry McDevitt on Thunder, wins by forfeit over Vince McMahon at Slamboree, and convinces his right-hand woman Janie Engle to stay with the company instead of going to the WWF after she already gave her notice. There is also all the in-ring action of WCW to talk about as well which there was a lot going on as usual, including Dean Malenko as Ciclope at Slamboree. We also talk about the beginning of the Top of the Super Juniors in New Japan, drama in Promo Azteca, Jeff Blatnick becoming the commissioner of the UFC right before a great UFC PPV from Mobile, Alabama, ECW presenting "It Ain't Seinfeld" in Queens the same night as the Seinfeld finale, and the WWF featuring Stone Cold vs. McMahon getting white hot. All that and a TON more on this week's show, so you’d better not miss this!!!!

Rank #13: FREE PATREON FLASHBACK: The Genesis of the Global Wrestling Federation

Podcast cover
Read more

Being that our Patreon specials play out differently from how our regular shows go, we've started to start giving everyone a free taste of the full shows from time to time so you can get an idea of what they're like before becoming a patron. There's nothing better to get us started than the show from two years ago, which is one of our best: March 2018's Between The Sheets Patreon Special #18: The Genesis of the Global Wrestling Federation. It's as deep a dive as we've ever done, and you'll quickly notice one of the key benefits to these deep dive shows: It quickly becomes very obvious that something isn't right with the GWF's financing...so why didn't anyone notice this back then?


For more shows like this, including the other two parts of our GWF series, go to Patreon.com/BetweenTheSheets and support us at the $5/month level or higher.


----------


You've asked for it for years. We've promised that we would eventually do it almost as long. And finally? IT'S HERE! Yes, Kris and David go back in time to 1990, when a mysterious Nigerian man named Mr. Olu Oliami visits Joe Pedicino's office and offers him $25 million to run a new national wrestling promotion. From there, just about everything falls apart. Where, exactly, is Mr. Oliami's funding coming from? Where is the trust that Joe thinks it's coming from headquartered and why does it keep changing? Just how suspicious was this before the internet made knowledge of Nigerian 419 scams widespread? Who was in on what? How were the wrestling newsletters complicit? Was Mr. Oliami real and is he still alive? What the hell does Jim Cornette have to do with all of this? What was Jerry Jarrett ever planning to sell to Joe and Olu's Kongi Sports and Entertainment?

All that and a whole lot more in the best Patreon special yet. We hope you have as much fun listening to this as we had recording it.

We also talk about a PPV battle in Japan that same day as PRIDE was joined by All Japan and All Japan Women, with both holding great shows, featuring Toshiaki Kawada regaining the Triple Crown from Keiji Mutoh. We also talk about the first-ever Ring of Honor show, a wacky XWF house show tour through west Texas, the nWo poison spreading through the WWF, New Jack nearly maiming Vic Grimes at XPW “Freefall,” and much more.

Kris Zellner is joined by Al Getz (@AlGetzWrestling) & Jeff G. Bailey (@JeffGBailey1) as we begin a new series of Exile on Badstreet podcasts focusing on the history of NWA Wildside. This first episode will focus on the genesis of NWA Wildside in 1999 and how it was spawned from Steve Martin's NCW and Bill Behrens connection with the NWA through NWA Georgia & Bert Prentice’s NWA Worldwide. Al & Jeff tell some awesome stories from their early days in the business and how they ended up in Georgia working with what was to become Wildside, plus we spotlight some of the early names that came through the promotion such as a young star named K-Krush (Ron "The Truth/R-Truth” Killings) and A.J. Styles, among others. Great introduction to this series that sets the table for what's to come!

With the premiere of the Brawl For All episode of VICE TV's Dark Side of the Ring, we figured it would be a good idea to repost the special themed episode that we did about the topic about four years ago with our good friend Jordan Breen.

Kris & David are joined by Jordan Breen (Sherdog) to discuss the genesis of the Brawl for All concept from WWF in 1998 and how everything went down. We discuss all the fights and how each competitor fared good or bad. We also talked about the aftermath of the tournament and how the WWF really screwed it up plus how Butterbean became the true winner in all of this. This is a really strong show!!!!

We also talk about a weird but memorable Raw in Berlin, Germany featuring Owen Hart vs. Davey Boy Smith, reactions to Ken Shamrock signing with the WWF, Joe Higuchi retiring from All Japan, Fake Diesel & Fake Razor Ramon being a part of a nWo knockoff in AAA, what the real story with ECW/WWF relationship was—at least according to Paul Heyman, and Brakkus debuting in Memphis, and more, but the real main event is the reason Vera picked this week: Roddy Piper recruiting his “family” in an infamous angle on a crazy Nitro at The Omni in Atlanta that Kris was at live.
