Between the Sheets #116: October 4-10, 1986

Kris & David are guestless this week as we discuss the week that was October 4-12, 1986. We talk about Manny Fernandez turning on Jimmy Valiant, Buddy Landel quitting, and more news and views on JCP. We then talk about the spectacle of Antonio Inoki vs. Leon Spinks, plus we go to the territories where we get the Singapore Suicide Match in Continental, Sputnik Monroe returning to Memphis, a promotional war in Dallas, and lots more. WWF ends the show talking about Saturday Night’s Main Event and how Roddy Piper portrayed a character never seen in WWF before. A tremendous show so don’t miss it!!!
