Kris & David are guestless this week to discuss the week that was February 15-21, 1998. We talk about the tragic death of Louie Spicolli and how the wrestling industry handled it for the good or bad. We also talk about a big week in the WWF with No Way Out of Texas on PPV and Shawn Michaels’ serious back issues. We then cover All-Japan talking to ECW & WWF, Don Frye catching fire in New Japan, Paco Alonso & Victor Quinones burying the hatchet, ECW & NWA New Jersey having more issues, IWA Mid-South’s Eddie Gilbert Memorial Show, and Hulk Hogan’s lust for power makes WCW revolve around him even more. This is a loaded show so listen now!!!
