Ep. #438: December 27, 1991-January 2, 1992 with Ian Riccaboni

4h 19m | Jan 1, 2024

Kris & Bix are joined by Ian Riccaboni (@IanRiccaboni) to discuss the week that was December 27, 1991 through January 2, 1992. Ian joined us for the WCW and WWF sections, and it was a blast having him back on. Topics of discussion include:

  • WCW Starrcade ’91 starring BATTLE BOWL: THE LETHAL LOTTERY and all of the wackiness that went on there with the pairings of the tag matches and the angles on the show.
  • Jushin Thunder Liger and Brian Pillman tearing it up on the WCW house shows during Christmas week.
  • P.N. News finds out the hard way about messing with Rick Rude.
  • Tokyo Sports and Super Luchas give out their year-end awards.
  • Abu Wizal promotes a Stampede Wrestling revival without the Hart family seal of approval.
  • Brian Christopher turns heel for the first time in Memphis.
  • One of the greatest TV tapings in Global Wrestling Federation's history, featuring the Lightning Kid vs. Jerry Lynn and Eddie Gilbert vs. Terry Garvin Simms 2/3 falls matches.
  • Portland Wrestling's final TV show on KPTV.
  • WWF's stormy year of 1992 begins with Superstar Billy Graham about to appear on Inside Edition and Jesse Ventura filing his famous videotape royalties lawsuit.
  • The Rockers fall apart as a tag team after losing to the Legion of Doom on TV.
  • Chris Chavis — under that name, not as Tatanka — has his first vignette.
  • The complete WWF talent depth chart by official internal ranking going into 1992.
