Between the Sheets #78: January 11-18, 1989

Kris & David are guestless this week discussing the week that was January 11-17, 1989. We talk about Dusty Rhodes being removed from power in the NWA and the backlash from that happening. We also talk about the Russians invading New Japan and then we go to a story that spans multiple territories regarding Jerry Lawler and the status of his world title. Then we go to the WWF to talk about the Royal Rumble and Bobby Heenan being on the All-Madden Team. All this and more for a really fun show so check it out!!!
