Kris & David are joined by Al Getz (@AlGetzWrestling) to discuss the week that was August 28-September 3, 1986. We talk about a huge week in Jim Crockett Promotions, with the outline of the takeover of Central States, major house shows around the country including their debut in Los Angeles, lots of title changes, great promos on TV, and lots more. We also talk about Bruiser Brody coming back to New Japan, a possible Keiji Mutoh vs. Roddy Piper match for Mutoh’s return as Space Lone Wolf, the Observer talking about a dude named Toshiaki wrestling in Montreal, Battle of the Belts III in Florida, John Tatum & Eddie Gilbert about to explode in UWF, blood & guts back in World Class, Jerry Lawler jobbing to Sam Houston in Kansas City, and more. Finally, THE BIG EVENT is the big WWF story, topping off the greatest week of business in the history of the World Wrestling Federation. A tremendous show, so make sure you don’t miss it!!!!
