Between the Sheets #213 (August 14-20, 1998) (Featuring Mike Michaels)

Kris Zellner & David Bixenspan are joined by Mike Michaels to discuss the week that was August 14-20, 1998. We talk about the debut of The [Ultimate] Warrior in WCW at Monday Nitro in Hartford in a wild and zany segment that lasted about 3 times longer than it should have, plus all the ramifications involved with him coming into the promotion. We also talk about a very odd “shoot” promo by Eddy Guerrero where he “quit” WCW, Goldberg & Kevin Nash on The Love Boat, Nicole Bass debuting in Japan for NEO, the death of Shane Shamrock, Randy Hales getting his head shaved in Memphis, plus an insane Vince McMahon chat on AOL as well as Kane impersonating The Undertaker against on the Highway to Hell. Extremely entertaining show, so don’t miss it!!!!
