Between the Sheets #147: May 9-15, 2000

Kris & David are guestless this week as we discuss the week that was May 9-15, 2000. We talk about a wild weekend for ECW including Hardcore Heaven and all the drama that surrounded it, the death of Jumbo Tsuruta and our memories of him, PRIDE starting to break through in the United States, and a WCW section that screams “WCW, EVERYBODY!” in every way.
