Ep. #407: May 24-30, 19925h 24m | May 29, 2023
Kris and David are guestless as we discuss the week that was May 24-30, 1992. Topics of discussion include:
- WWF moving SummerSlam from the Capital Centre in Landover, Maryland to Wembley Stadium in London, England and how that will affect the show.
- Titan Sports also moving the WBF PPV from the Convention Center in Long Beach, California to the Terrace Theater down the street, which meant a difference of 9,600 available seats and the obvious reasons that happened.
- Mainstream magazines doing stories on steroids in Titan Sports and how the pro wrestling magazines were arguably doing a better job than them at covering the steroid issue.
- Randy Savage and Miss Elizabeth’s impending divorce becomes public knowledge and changes the direction of Savage’s ongoing feud with Ric Flair
- WWF TV clips including Nailz making his debut, Bret Hart throwing barbs at Shawn Michaels, and Papa Shango doing his black magic.
- One of the greatest matches in wrestling history taking place in All Japan in the form of Kenta Kobashi and Tsuyoshi Kikuchi’s All-Asian Tag Team Title win over the Can-Am Express in Kikuchi’s hometown of Miyagi, plus Atsushi Onita takes on Leon Spinks in FMW, the newly-formed AAA picking up stream in Mexico, Super Porky suffering a heart attack, Negro Casas jumping from the UWA to CMLL, and much more in our international section.
- Tatsumi Fujinami appearing at a very early ECW show, the USWA vs. “Global" feud getting hot and heavy in Memphis, Don Owen promoting his final card in Portland, and so much more in the indie section.
- The impending arrival of Cowboy Bill Watts with his “Ten Commandments,” Larry Zbyszko turning babyface and splitting off from the Dangerous Alliance, and tons more in WCW.
