Kris & David are guestless this week as we discuss the week that was May 15-21, 1996. We talk about the "Curtain Call" by The Clique at Madison Square Garden and why it might have happened in the first place, which no one really talks about. We also look at the immediate aftermath, especially regarding Hunter Hearst Helmsley. We then talk about the Godwinns winning the WwF Tag Titles, Kazuyuki Fujita signing with New Japan, Lucha in Nuevo Laredo getting red hot, maybe the greatest match in ECW history airing on TV during our week, Jerry Lawler tweaking his character in the USWA, Slamboree: The Lethal Lottery, and tons more.
