Between the Sheets #85: March 1-7, 1987 w/ Pete Lederberg

Kris & David are joined by Pete Lederberg (WFIA) to discuss the week that was March 1-7, 1987. We talk about WrestleMania III ticket sales soaring, Missy Hyatt floundering in the WWF, Riki Choshu’s uncertainty with AJPW, all sorts of territory news including World Class hooking up with Bum Bright, and the end of Championship Wrestling from Florida as they were taken over by Jim Crockett Promotions. All that and there’s also a preview of our latest Patreon show at the end. Fun show so check it out!!!
