Kris & David are joined by Al Getz (@AlGetzWrestling) & Beau James (@kingofkingsport) to discuss the week that was December 18-24, 1993. We talk about Jim Cornette’s long letter to the Torch about Wade Keller’s coverage of the “race riot” at an SMW show in Wise, Virginia, but we also play some great clips from SMW, especially a Dick Murdoch promo that you can’t miss. We also discuss Bobby Heenan coming to WCW, Jesse Ventura staying in WCW, and Davey Boy Smith leaving WCW, including how he was buried on TV to make way for the debut of the Big Bossman as “The Boss.” We also talk about all of the news from Japan, Mexico, and Europe, including Otto Wanz running his big year-end show just days after the tragic in-ring death of Larry Cameron. We also have the WWF running some egregious 900 number polls, the debuts of Sparky Plugg & Double J, the return of Randy Savage to WWF Mania, Frank Deford writing to the Observer, and much more. Beau & Al also tell some amazing stories from their time in the business, to boot, and this show is AMAZING, so LISTEN NOW!!!!
