Between the Sheets #217 (September 11-17, 1989)

Kris & David are guestless this week as we discuss the week that was September 11-17, 1989. We talk about a wild week in the NWA where we have Clash of the Champions, which saw lots of goings-on, including Ric Flair being smothered by Terry Funk with a plastic bag, as well as lots of other from the Turner organization, including Funk being suspended for said smothering, Paul E. Dangerously being fired after a controversial Danger Zone which still aired on TV, and much more. We also talk about Shinya Hashimoto making waves in New Japan, Hurricane Hugo wreaking havoc in Puerto Rico and forcing WWC to move their Anniversario show, Bam Bam Bigelow maybe getting into boxing, Scott Norton’s arm wrestling career, Bobby Heenan returning to Prime Time Wrestling, and so much more. Extremely fun show, so don’t miss out!!!
