Between the Sheets #225 (November 6-13, 1990) (Featuring Bruce Mitchell)

Kris & David are joined by Bruce Mitchell (Pro Wrestling Torch) as we discuss the week that was November 6-12, 1990. Bruce is only with us for the NWA/WCW section, but oh what a section it is, as we talk about the NWA -> WCW name change, Ric Flair at the Georgia/Florida game, and Starrcade ’90 taking shape among other things, but most importantly the dilemma of Art Barr signing just weeks after he copped a plea for sexual abuse in Oregon. Besides WCW, we talk about Dave Meltzer’s road trip for major indie shows in the suburban Philadelphia area, issues with USWA Challenge airing in Memphis after the show moved tapings from Dallas to the Mid-South Coliseum, news from all of the groups in Dallas including Chris Adams’s first non-USWA/WCCW spot show, Christopher Love causing issues in Houston, Jesse Ventura being elected as Mayor of Brooklyn Park, talk of Roddy Piper turning heel for WrestleMania to feud with The Ultimate Warrior, and tons more. An extremely fun and interesting show, so listen now!!!!
