Kris & David are guestless as we discuss the week that was March 27-April 2, 1993. We talk about WCW planning for the initial Slamboree as well as dealing with people coming and going from the roster. We also talk about the biggest win of Toshiaki Kawada’s career so far, WAR doing big business with help from New Japan, AJW’s humongous Dream Slam show, SMW’s Bluegrass Brawl which featured maybe the greatest match in the history of the promotion, and a wild week in Dallas. And perhaps most famously, we’ve got Jim Ross announcing that he’s joining the WWF and interviewing Vince McMahon…on his WCW-sponsored radio show. All that and more on a damn fun episode of BTS!!!!!
