Between the Sheets #148: May 16-22, 1986

Kris & David are guestless this week as we discuss the week that was May 16-22, 1986. We talk about THE JAMES BOYS in Jim Crockett Promotions, All Japan running 3 major shows, Bill Dundee & Buddy Landel breaking up, Bill Watts getting tired of Russians, World Class starting to fall apart, and the AWA crowning new tag champs, plus the saga of Billy Jack Haynes & Mychal Thompson as they expose Don Owen on local Portland TV while Billy leaves for the WWF. A damn fun show, so check it out!!!!
