Between the Sheets #207 (July 3-9, 1993) (Featuring Joe Sposto)

Kris & David are joined by Joe Sposto (@JoeSposto) to discuss the week that was July 3-9, 1993. We talk about the Yokozuna Bodyslam Challenge aboard the U.S.S. Intrepid, featuring the birth of “All-American Hero” Lex Luger, and how the fans there were really hoping for someone else. We also discuss the alternate universe of Bret Hart slamming Yokozuna, an influx of new talent coming to the WWF, Riki Choshu tearing his achilles tendon, Road Warrior Hawk doing a job in Austria, Carlos Colon talking retirement, King Eddie Gilbert reigning over Philadelphia, Tammy Fytch & Brian Lee cavorting by the pool, UWFi coming to American PPV, WCW changing wrestling history with their new Orlando TV taping schedule, and much more. An extremely fun show, so don’t miss out!!!!!!!
