Between the Sheets #159: August 1-7, 1986

Kris & David are guestless this week as we discuss the week that was August 1-7, 1986. We talk about new faces in the WWF as well as Hulk Hogan’s AWESOME narration of the story of Paul Orndorff’s heel turn on him. We also discuss Rick Martel breaking a bottle over his head to prove how tough he is, the Georgia indie scene picking up, Bill Watts losing talent and trying to stay fresh, World Class business troubles, and the AWA possibly making some moves with a porn industry representative, plus JCP has lots of new faces and then bombs at Atlanta’s Fulton County Stadium. Damn fun show, so don’t miss it!!!
