Between the Sheets #226 (November 13-19, 1988 Featuring Beau James)

Kris & David are joined by Beau James (@kingofkingsport) to discuss the week that was November 13-19, 1988. We talk about possibly the wildest story we’ve ever covered on the show, regarding federal extortion charges being brought in Hawaii against Lia Maivia and Lars Anderson, as well as how it all ended up at trial a year later, which is crazy in it’s own right. We also talk about Dave Meltzer going on the road with the WWF for a couple of highly draining TV tapings in northern California, Giant Baba firing Ashura Hara from All Japan over gambling issues, Irv Muchnick interviewing Antonio Inoki for a Penthouse article that never ended up running, the British Bulldogs returning to Stampede, Scott Armstrong returning to Continental, Don Owen getting shut down by the Oregon State Athletic Commission, and a truly nuts NWA section featuring the beginning of the end of Dusty Rhodes in the promotion, including the birth of The Dusty Flu. This was an amazing show that you simply can not miss, so LISTEN NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
