Kris and David are guestless as we discuss the week that was November 8-14, 2000. Topics of discussion include:

  • Updates on the status of the potential sale of WCW and how Jerry Jarrett is possibly playing a role in it.
  • An interesting episode of Thunder featuring the infamous segment where Lenita Erickson interviews Bob Sapp.
  • A wacky Nitro from London, England.
  • The saga of Peter Goldschmidt and Robert Catell, which you have to hear to believe.
  • Shinya Hashimoto getting "fired" by New Japan.
  • Tons of Japanese indie results.
  • El Hijo del Santo gets betrayed by two partners in the same match.
  • Scott Hall making his ECW debut to some mixed reactions from the talent backstage.
  • An update on the health of the Sinister Minister/Jim Mitchell and ECW exploiting his injury for TV ratings.
  • Sabu winning the NWA World Heavyweight Title.
  • WrestleMania X-Seven doing big business on its first day of ticket sales, with a future WWF Superstar visible in the crowd at the ticket onsale press conference.
  • WWFE sues L. Brent Bozell and his Parents Television Council as their war of words continues.
  • A terrible episode of SmackDown and the subsequent Raw that wasn't a whole hell of a lot better in the early days of Stephanie McMahon as head writer.
  • The debut of Molly Holly and how differently she was presented compared to later in her run with the company.

All of this and a whole helluva lot more on a stacked episode of BTS!!!
