Kris & David are joined by Beau James (@kingofkingsport) to discuss the week that was January 2-8, 1987. We talk about a Saturday Night's Main Event featuring the Hulk Hogan-Paul Orndorff steel cage match that had a finish that will never be forgotten, as well as the pending Andre the Giant heel turn and how that affected the SNME booking. We also talk about AJPW & NJPW kicking off their new year at Korakuen Hall, Kevin Sullivan returning to Florida and the budding relationship that territory had with Continental, a third New Guinea Headhunter making quite the debut in a steel cage, Hacksaw Duggan & The Fantastics leaving the UWF, the saga of Vladimir Petrov, and much more. This is an extremely fun show, so check it out!!!
