Between the Sheets #214 (August 21-27, 1990) (Featuring Ben Zani)

Kris & David are joined by Ben Zani (@BostonNooga) to discuss the week that was August 21-27, 1990. We talk about SummerSlam ’90 and all the big happenings on the show…which were mostly outside of the ring, as the pay-per-view featured only about an hour of wrestling. We also talk about Roddy Piper replacing Jesse Ventura on WWF Superstars, Eric Embry & Scotty the Body in AJPW, Joe Pedicino being upset with the latest Georgia All-Star tapings, The Snowman & the USWA going to court, Percy Pringle in drag attacking Toni Adams, the birth of Herb Abrams’ UWF, and what exactly happened with Sting at John Arezzi’s convention the weekend of SummerSlam. A damn good show, so listen now!!!!
