Between the Sheets #98: May 31 – June 6, 1987

Kris & David are guestless this week discussing the week that was May 31-June 6, 1987. We talk about new faces coming to WWF and the Honky Tonk Man becoming the new WWF IC Champ as well as Riki Choshu making his in-ring return to NJPW. We also discuss Atlanta having a heavy TV wrestling scene, Big Bubba being kidnapped(!) in Memphis, the new World Class, and lots of excitement in JCP including phantom title changes and Dusty Rhodes wanting his goddamn money. This is a great show so LISTEN NOW!!!
