Between the Sheets #151: June 6-12, 1988 w/ Beau James

Kris & David are joined by Beau James (King of Kingsport) to discuss the week that was June 6-12, 1988. We talk about the Powers of Pain leaving JCP for the WWF and the ramifications of that and Brother Love making his debut on WWF TV. as well as No Holds Barred filming in Atlanta. We also discuss about the International scene including the 2nd ever show for the second UWF. We then head back to the United States hitting all the territories especially USA & Continental with Beau giving some great input into what was going plus some great clips. Then we close out with Jim Crockett Promotions featuring Clash of the Champions II: Miami Mayhem. This was a tremendous show and one of our best, so you better listen!!!!
