One thought on “Between the Sheets #125: December 6-12, 1997

  1. I have two January 98 Pro episodes but I don’t think I’ve watched them. I know I read results on DDT Digest where 2/1/98 was the last all exclusive match episode. After that, it’s 0-2 exclusives with the rest being all recap. The last episode looks to be 9/27/98 but I’ve never seen any episodes after January out there.

    Any idea if Pro existed post WGN and pre TBS (9/92 – 3/94)? If so, that’s probably the largest gap in footage for a big 2 show.

    I wish you guys knew when syndicated Main Event ended because I’ve been wondering that too. My guess would be when the format changed in March of 94 to the Bobby and Mean Gene PTW setup but I don’t have old listings to confirm.
