Between the Sheets #195 (April 10-16, 2000)

Kris & David are guestless as we discuss the week that was April 10-16, 2000, which was a Patron-requested show. This week was so huge that we were only able to fit in WCW, ECW, & the WWF. We talk about the Eric Bischoff and Vince Russo reboot of WCW including Nitro, Thunder, & Spring Stampede with all the details you could want on everything involved, and we play some great clips in this section that you can’t miss. We also discuss Mike Awesome leaving ECW as the World Heavyweight Champion to go to WCW and all of the drama surrounding that decision including Paul Heyman putting the belt on Tazz, who, of course, was a WWF wrestler at that time. We also talk about all the other issues in ECW including Paul Heyman trying to lock up all the talent he can. We then look at the WWF, which is going through a wild TV negotiation period, with USA not letting them go to Viacom easily. We also go over RAW, Smackdown, and much more. This is a tremendous show that can’t be missed!!!!
