Kris & David are joined by Rob Bihari (@RobViper) to discuss the week that was June 5-11, 2001. We talk about WWF's plans for WCW and how that was changing by the day along with their ideas for who they were going to bring in. We look back at about Kurt Angle vs. Chris Benoit in a steel cage and how that match's legacy changed after the Benoit tragedy. We also talk about All Japan & New Japan running big shows at the Budokan, featuring Keiji Mutoh winning the Triple Crown from Genichiro Tenryu in a great match two days after going 39 minutes with Hiroshi Hase, We also talk about Matrats, great action in Mexico including the debut of the Averno gimmick, CZW Take One featuring the legendary Spanish Announce Team vs. Divine Storm match & Brian XL match, Eric Bischoff & Kevin Nash getting mentioned during the Gold Club trial, and tons more.
