Kris and David are joined by Daniel Makabe (@danielmakabe) for the first half of the show as we discuss the week that was July 3-9, 1999. Topics of discussion include:

  • A crazy episode of WCW Monday Nitro at the Georgia Dome featuring Bret Hart's return to TV after the tragic death of Owen Hart, Bill Goldberg's surprise return after Megadeth’s live performance, The West Texas Rednecks having a concert of their own, Randy Savage assaulting women, and A LOT more.
  • Sting giving a very candid interview to the Miami Herald.
  • Louis Theroux’s Weird Weekends on BBC2 visiting the WCW Power Plant, where Louis gets a lot more than he bargained for.
  • Kenta Kobashi coming back early from nasal surgery.
  • A pro wrestling-tinged Pride FC 6 featuring Mark Kerr taking out Nobuhiko Takada and Naoya Ogawa’s debut vs. Gary Goodridge.
  • Paul Heyman giving one of the greatest, most Heymanesque interviews in the history of the Torch about the state of ECW.
  • Jerry Lawler announcing his candidacy for the Mayor of Memphis.
  • Oregon continuing their policy of testing pro wrestlers for illegal drugs.
  • Vince McMahon crashing his motorcycle and somehow immediately returning to work.
  • News on Chris Jericho's pending arrival to the WWF.
