Ep. #414: July 12-18, 1994

4h 52m | Jul 17, 2023

Kris and David are guestless as we discuss the week that was July 12-18, 1994…minus the steroid trial coverage. Topics of discussion include:

  • Hulk Hogan winning the WCW World Heavyweight Title from Ric Flair at the Bash at the Beach PPV in Orlando. We talk about all the media Hogan did before the show, how Hogan being champion would impact the company, and how WCW really felt like they were suddenly the #1 promotion in wrestling.
  • We also go over the rest of the PPV featuring Antonio Inoki showing up, Arn Anderson's predictable heel turn on Dustin Rhodes, Ricky Steamboat's last PPV match, and tons more. Plus other WCW talk includes Cactus Jack's impending departure, Jesse Ventura's anger about his standing in the company and how it showed on the PPV, and some “WCW, EVERYBODY!” moments.
  • Terry Gordy coming back to AJPW after overdose, Antonio Inoki wanting a piece of George Foreman, big shows in many organizations in Japan, a wild-looking show in England featuring various Americans, AAA doing big business in Mexico, and much more.
  • ECW Heat Wave ’94, including The Funks vs. Public Enemy in a wild spectacle of a barbed wire match and Dave Meltzer’s thoughts on visiting the ECW Arena for the first time.
  • Steve Armstrong's AJPW schedule screwing up a planned turn on his dad in SMW.
  • Sid Vicious winning the Unified Title on USWA TV in a crazy way.
  • The beginning of the Lex Luger/Tatanka/Ted DiBiase saga…right in the middle of the Undertaker/Fake Undertaker/Ted DiBiase saga.

All that and a lot more on a very fun episode of Between the Sheets!!
