Between the Sheets #179: December 19-25, 1997 w/ Dominic Garrini

Kris & David are joined by Dominic Garrini (@dgarrinibc) to discuss the week that was December 19-25, 1997. We talk about a wild week of MMA taking place in Japan featuring UFC Ultimate Japan, Pancrase, & RINGS with the UFC having a wild show in many ways. We also discuss about Sgt. Slaughter trying to stir up dissension in DX on RAW and how that worked out for him, ECW & FMW working together for major shows, a wild scene in Tijuana featuring Konnan and friends, ECW finally getting its PPVs on Time Warner Cable, and, of course nWo Monday Nitro in Macon, Georgia. Kris attended that show, which featured the biggest surprise that anyone could’ve ever wanted. Dom was awesome as a guest, so everyone listen to this show ASAP!!!!!
