Kris & David are joined by Dave Prazak (@DavePrazak) to discuss the week that was September 25-October 1, 1992. In WCW, we talk about the impending creative changes possibly coming to the company as well as the new contracts that Bill Watts is handing out to the talent. We also have audio from Bill Watts explaining the change to the top rope rule, Tony Schiavone kissing Bruno Sammartino’s ass, and a wild week in the history of the Steiner Brothers. We also talk about WAR invading New Japan offices, Pierroth turning technico in CMLL, Steve Armstrong turning down SMW for the WWF, Ronnie Lottz & The Dream Warriors debuting on USWA TV with a memorable promo, the WWF touring Europe in a big way, and much more. This show is extremely entertaining, but the cherry on top is Prazak killing it with maybe the best story told in the history of the podcast, which involves WCW’s 900 number hotline. This is the definition of a can’t-miss show!!!!!!
