Between the Sheets #139: March 14-20, 1986

Kris & David are guestless this week to discuss the week that was March 14-20, 1986. We talk about the Crockett Cup press conference which also marked the first big event of the Universal Wrestling Federation. We also discuss how the UWF getting Ken Mantell from World Class affected both promotions and how the first UWF TV taping started the group off with a bang. We also talk about Dave Meltzer’s early thoughts on the WrestleMania 2 card along with great clips and banter involving all the promotions around the world!!!
