Kris & David are guestless this week as we discuss the week that was June 12-18, 2009, a Patreon backer selection. We talk about the death of Mitsuharu Misawa and how it affected the wrestling business as a whole, as well as the cultural differences between Japan and the United States on how in handling the aftermath of a tragedy like that. We also look at Koji Kanemoto winning the Best of the Super Juniors in an era of New Japan that was changing for the better, referee Ted Tanabe dying less than 48 hours after Misaw, full on insanity in TNA as usual, huge shows for AAA & CMLL in Mexico, ROH leaving PPV/their big show in New York featuring a new champion/issues between them & Ric Flair, CZW Best of the Best, the Between The Sheets debut of AIW, Donald Trump “buying” RAW from Vince McMahon, and tons more. This is a can't miss show, no doubt, so listen now!!!!!!!!
