Kris & David are joined by Al Getz (@AlGetzWrestling) to discuss the week that was February 6-12, 1986. We talk about Jim Crockett taking over St. Louis while creating a new NWA World Heavyweight Title belt during the final planning stages for the first ever Crockett Cup. We also talk about the beginning of the New Japan vs. UWF feud, the Fabulous Ones leaving Mid-South for Florida, Jake Roberts leaving Mid-South for the WWF, Jerry Lawler returning to Memphis TV in a taped promo, Crockett's dislike of Bruiser Brody, Verne Gagne losing promoters by the week, and a full rundown of the epic Bob Orton Jr., Roddy Piper, & Magnificent Muraco's wild night in Fresno, California. Damn fun show, so don't miss it!!!!!!!!
