Between the Sheets #223 (October 23-29, 2003)

Kris & David are guestless this time out as we discuss the week that was October 23-29, 2003. We talk about TNA and their issues with the booking of their promotion with various people involved, such as Dutch Mantell, Scott D’Amore, Vince Russo, and others. We also talk about their weekly PPV, featuring Jimmy Hart and his MYSTERY MAN among other TNA issues. We also go over Toshiaki Kawada battling Don Frye for the AJPW Triple Crown Title at the Budokan, World Japan drama with wrestlers not being paid being used in an angle, CZW running a show in Italy(?!?!), Hector Garza getting his head shaved in Monterrey, Low-Ki being done with Ring of Honor again, Lance Russell returning to Memphis TV, and the big story of the week: The wedding of Paul “Triple H” Levesque & Stephanie McMahon, complete with a raucous reception starring Michael “P.S.” Hayes. This is a damn good show, and you shouldn’t dare miss it!!!
