Kris & David are joined by Ring of Honor’s Ian Riccaboni (@IanRiccaboni) to discuss the week that was November 24-December 3, 1991, and yes we explain why this covers more than 7 days. We lead off with an insane WWF section featuring both Survivor Series & This Tuesday in Texas, plus all the TV surrounding those shows in what was probably the longest section in the history of the show. We talk about the Randy Savage/Jake Roberts feud, including the snake bite angle, The Undertaker’s brief first stint as WWF Champion, and tons more. We also talk about All Japan’s insane TV ratings at the time, FMW doing big business with Leon Spinks as one of their lead heels, great-looking shows in Mexico, a wild USWA section featuring J.T. Smith under a mask, surfer Sandman, & THE WARRIOR. Plus we also have Steve Beverly at the LPWA show in Jackson, Tennessee featuring a wild Jim Cornette story, Eddie Gilbert’s first night as the booker of the GWF, Portland Wrestling’s TV show getting cancelled, Lex Luger quitting WCW for a few hours, and much, much more. A crazy good show, so listen now!!!!!!
