Kris & David are joined by Daniel Makabe (@danielmakabe) to discuss the week that was March 6-12, 1998. We talk about the huge power struggle in WCW between Hulk Hogan and the Wolfpac which indirectly caused the firing of Sean Waltman and how that is affecting the promotion as a whole. We also look at about two very “WCW” TV shows as well as New Japan wanting to kill the two promotions’ working agreement. We then talk about other New Japan news, the end of the WAR promotion, WCW's issues with Promo Azteca, the Pit Bulls getting arrested, wrestling coming back to Memphis TV, Jim Ross interviewing Mike Tyson on RAW, plus lots and lots more. Tremendous show, so definitely give it a listen!!!!!
