Kris & David are joined by Scott Bowden (Kentucky Fried Rasslin) to not only discuss the week-plus that was December 8-17, 1985, but ALSO make a can’t-mis MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT at the end of the show regarding the future of the KFR Podcast. We talk about Bruiser Brody & Jimmy Snuka being “fired” from New Japan and all of the drama that went on regarding that situation, as well as the end of the Real World Tag League in All Japan. We also talk about the future of PPV for the WWF after the Wrestling Classic show, Lanny Poffo’s poem for Bobby Heenan, Kevin Sullivan’s psychotic angles on Florida TV, The Freedom Fighters, Steve Borden & Jim Hellwig, going heel with manager Buddy Wayne, Koko Ware dressing as Santa Claus in the Memphis studio, and Bruiser Brody joining Texas All-Star. We then bring it home with Jim Crockett Promotions, where Starrcade payoffs come out for the JCP talent, and some people are *pissed* to say the least. All that and much more on a fantastic show, so LISTEN NOW!!!!
