Kris & David are guestless this week as we discuss the week that was May 22-28, 1988. We talk about the initial reporting of the impending sale of Jim Crockett Promotions coming out during our week, and how it would become more and more drawn out. We also play some great clips from JCP TV, including a particularly keyed up Tully Blanchard promo. Other topics of discussion include Adrian Adonis returning to NJPW, Keith Hart replacing Bruce Hart as the booker in Stampede, Ron Wright being awesome in USA Wrestling, Eddie Gilbert beating down John Gilliam in Continental, the Stud Stable reforming in Memphis, Eric Embry taking over the book in World Class, Roddy Piper's masterpiece film "Buy and Cell." and much more. Another 80's show that is a load of fun, so listen now!!!!
