Kris and David were guestless as we discussed the week that was May 10-16, 1994. Topics of discussion include:

  • The WWF touring Japan "on their own" and not exactly lighting the world on fire business-wise.
  • Earthquake and Yokozuna doing some sumo wrestling on Monday Night Raw.
  • Nikolai Volkoff and his new hair joins up with Ted DiBiase.
  • The Heavenly Bodies making their All Japan debut.
  • Jake Roberts getting choked out by his own snake capping off a wild night at AAA's TripleMania II-B in Zapopan, complete with an in-person report from Dave Meltzer.
  • ECW runs their big "When Worlds Collide" show featuring Arn Anderson and Bobby Eaton.
  • Jake Roberts winning the Smoky Mountain Wrestling Heavyweight Title on TV.
  • The USWA celebrating their 900th episode on WMC-TV in Memphis, and yes, there was cake.
  • The MWF, with a lot of help from CMLL, runs a mediocre debut show at the newly-reopened Grand Olympic Auditorium.
  • Ric Flair and Ricky Steamboat tear it up on WCW Saturday Night as Flair wins what’s billed as his 12th world title.
  • Rick Rude quits WCW due to his various injuries.
  • Lots of “WCW, EVERYBODY!” moments.
