Between the Sheets #160: August 8-14, 1996 w/ Dr. Keith Lipinski

Kris & David are joined by Dr. Keith Lipinski (@KeithLipinski) to discuss the week that was August 8-14, 1996. We talk about WCW going HOG WILD in Sturgis, South Dakota and how much of a debacle it turned out to be. We also discuss Jushin Thunder Liger’s first match back after announcing that he had a brain tumor, ECW debuting in Japan, PROMELL running their first TV taping in Mexico, KISS invading the ECW Arena, Ahmed Johnson’s emergency kidney surgery, and much, much more. This is a great show, so don’t miss it!!!!
