Ep. #392: February 8-14, 19944h 4m | Feb 13, 2023
Kris and David are guestless as we discuss the week that was February 8-14, 1994.
- We start with the WWF, where we talk about Vince McMahon's legal issues starting to get media play again in the only major story in a quiet week as Raw was off due to the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.
- Next, we go international, talking about Masashi Aoyagi starting up his own promotion, Royce Gracie being in demand, Akira Maeda wanting to face his old friends again, AAA doing big business in Mexico while helping UWA do better, too, among many other things.
- Then we go back to the U.S. indie scene, where we talk about some amazing Terry Funk promos in ECW and SMW, Shane Douglas becoming the Franchise in ECW, Sunday Bloody Sunday in SMW, no live USWA in Memphis thanks to bad weather, and so much more.
- WCW closes the show, as we try to figure out what's really going on with Dusty Rhodes, Ric Flair, and the head booker position, we go over the news from the latest marathon Worldwide tapings at Disney, and bask in the awkwardness of Ted Turner and Jane Fonda hanging out in the crowd at Center Stage, plus so much more.
