Between the Sheets #222 (October 16-22, 2009)

Kris & David are guestless this week as we discuss the week that was October 16-22, 2009, a Patreon-requested week. We talk about the big news that shocked the wrestling world, as Shane McMahon announced his resignation from World Wrestling Entertainment, as well as the aftershocks from that. We also talk about Kofi Kingston losing his Jamaican accent on Raw, Vince McMahon trying to make Team SmackDown stronger for Bragging Rights, AAA furthering the Dorian Roldan kidnapping angle, CMLL trying to compete with the big WWE shows in Mexico and coming up short, Jim Cornette talking about ROH’s future stars…including Kenny Omega?!?! And we close with a classic TNA section featuring Bound for Glory and a wild episode of Impact featuring the debut of Desmond Wolfe, a.k.a. Nigel McGuinness signing there after failing his WWE physical. A really entertaining show that you can’t miss!!!!!
