Kris & David are joined this week by Joe Sposto (Longbox Heroes) to discuss the week that was May 23-29, 1997. We talk about Bret Hart vs. Shawn Michaels heating up outside the ring and Shawn returning to action on RAW, which also features a highly controversial Jerry Lawler promo on Goldust. We also run down all the major news and views from outside the United States, then circle back for Rob Van Dam being hated by everyone in ECW, Fake Diesel & Fake Razor Ramon colliding in Memphis, and time standing still at the end of Monday Nitro. A really strong show, so listen now!!!!
