Between the Sheets #197 (April 24-30, 1990)

Kris & David are guestless this week as we discuss the week that was April 24-30, 1990. We talk about Genichiro Tenryu leaving All Japan to help form SWS and what that means for both promotions, as well as how New Japan also got hit by SWS with Naoki Sano & George Takano jumping ship, plus the NWA running two controversial house shows (for different reasons) at the Meadowlands & in Greensboro, Marc Lowrance quitting the USWA, the NWA helping the AWA’s ticket sales, a fun Saturday Night’s Main Event in Texas, and much more. A very fun show, so listen now!!!!
