Between the Sheets #232 (December 25-31, 2000)

Kris & David are guestless as we discuss the week that was December 25-31, 2000. We talk about the impending death of ECW as everything is stacking up against Paul Heyman, including the broadcast of the final episode of Hardcore TV, which features a surprise appearance from Taz. We then go to the WWF where we talk about the New York Daily News previewing the upcoming and incredibly revealing Vince McMahon interview in Playboy, Kurt Angle and his family singing Winter Wonderland, Dave Meltzer’s fashion critiques for Stephanie McMahon, and lots more. We then go to Japan for the the amazing show that was the first ever INOKI BOM BA YE at the Tokyo Dome plus the latest battle of SURVIVAL TOBITA!!!!!!, before returning to the U.S. for the first King of the Indies tournament in Northern California and a definite classic “WCW EVERYBODY” section, featuring the firing of Mark Madden and Wade Keller getting fed false contract news among other things. All than and much more on a tremendous show, so don’t miss out!!!!!
