Between the Sheets #97: May 24-30, 2003

Kris & David are guestless as well as under the weather this week as we discuss the week that was May 24-30, 2003. We talk about all the craziness backstage in TNA between the Jarrett clique and the Russo clique. We then go over all the many promotions in Japan at the time and even some England/Australia stuff as well. We then discuss the scene in Mexico before going to the US Indies which saw some interesting shows in IWA Mid-South & Mid-American Wrestling. Finally, we close with WWE featuring some fun clips starring Vince McMahon & Zach Gowen. We were sick but soldiered on and we hope the show is up to our normal standards!
