Between the Sheets #132: January 24-30, 1988

Kris & David are guestless this week discussing the week that was January 24-30, 1988. We talk about the Battle of January 24th, with NWA’s Bunkhouse Stampede pay-per-view going head-to-head with the WWF’s Royal Rumble on USA to see who could put on the best show…and just who did Dave Meltzer give it to? We also discuss the turmoil in the JCP locker room with people quitting, Buzz Sawyer making waves in New Japan, Jerry Blackwell’s SCW getting hot in Georgia, just why WrestleMania went to Atlantic City, and much more. Great show, so check it out!!!
