Between the Sheets #178: December 12-18, 1996 w/ Rob Bihari

Kris & David are joined by Rob Bihari (@RobViper) to discuss the week that was December 12-18, 1996. We talk about the nWo taking over Nitro for an hour leading to Masahiro Chono, Big Bubba, & Scott Norton joining the faction on the same show. We also talk about more guys from Mexico coming into WCW, as well as Diamond Dallas Page’s wild Christmas party. We then go to Japan and talk about WAR & Pancrase running major shows plus some awards talk. Mexico is next and we discuss AAA making some big moves and CMLL trying to play catchup before going to Memphis where we talk about the USWA version of the Nation of Domination featuring RANDY X & QUEEN MOESHA. We close with the WWF and their “It’s Time” PPV as well as their own new relationship with Mexico’s AAA featuring the debuts of Cibernetico, Hector Garza, Mil Mascaras, & Pierroth. An extremely good show, so make sure you listen!!!!
