Ep. #464: June 26-July 2, 1993

6h 13m | Jul 1, 2024

Kris and David are guestless as we discuss the week that was June 26-July 2, 1993. Topics of discussion include:

  • The WWF announcing its intent to fight back in the world of public relations against the previous year's Titangate accusers — including Tom Cole and Rita Chatterton! — by using their house organ, WWF Magazine.
  • Linda McMahon speaking very candidly to Mike Mooneyham about various lawsuit-related topics, particularly Tom Cole’s, and how Tom responded.
  • Hulk Hogan's big run in the WWF ending with a whimper at some poorly-attended house shows.
  • Lex Luger's last appearances as The Narcissist while he’s about to move on to bigger things as a babyface.
  • Bam Bam Bigelow introducing his “main squeeze” to Boni Blackstone and the world.
  • Toshiaki Kawada joining Akira Taue to form the Holy Demon Army and why Jun Akiyama replaced him in the Super Generation Army.
  • Antonio Inoki being embroiled in a major political scandal which some thought would do major harm to his career.
  • Roddy Piper making an appearance with Love Machine in AAA, which sparks a ton of rumors.
  • Eddie Gilbert taking to the streets as the King of Philadelphia in a very sad segment on ECW TV.
  • Tracy Smothers and Tim Horner beefing in a babyface feud in SMW.
  • A great angle involving Jeff Jarrett, Brian Christopher, and an overzealous "fan" on USWA TV.
  • Total turmoil in WCW as they are forced to quit making (and airing) their mini-movies, the Cactus Jack “Lost in Cleveland” skits are cancelled, plus we get the real story of Booker T and Stevie Ray as "The Posse."
