Between the Sheets: April 22-28, 1997 with Jordan Breen

Kris & David are joined by Jordan Breen (@jordanbreen) to discuss the week that was April 22-28, 1997. We talk about a weird Nitro featuring Ric Flair & Roddy Piper brawling with the Wolfpack in a botched ending, the birth of nWo Japan in NJPW, FMW’s big anniversary show with some insane matches, Yuki Kondo becoming the new King of Pancrase, Raven leaving ECW for WCW, the birth of Mr. Monday Night, a wild story involving the Howard Stern Show and the northeast indie scene, the aftermath of Vader returning from Kuwait, and so, so, so much more. This was an extremely entertaining show, so listen now!!!!!!!!
