Between the Sheets #176: November 28-December 4, 1989 w/ Beau James

Kris & David are joined yet again by Beau James (@kingofkingsport) to discuss the week that was November 28-December 4, 1989. We talk about the death of the Continental Wrestling Federation (which Beau had some very interesting thoughts on, as you would expect), Ric Flair bringing a big surprise for Gary Hart in the NWA, Giant Baba loving The Nasty Boys, the UWF selling out the Tokyo Dome with no television, a great show at Arena Mexico featuring Fuerza Guerrera winning All Star’s mask, Paul E. Dangerously planning on an indie consortium with Eddie Gilbert, Chris Champion cursing on live TV in Memphis, the WWF trying to change the pay-per-view business, and much more. A very strong show, so listen now!!!!
