Kris & Bix are joined by John Thorne (@JohnThorneAIW) to discuss the week that was June 19-25, 1994. We talk about the King of the Ring pay-per-view starring Art Donovan and what a glorious performance he had as an announcer on that show. Elsewhere on that show, we also look at the crowning of Owen Hart and how that was overshadowed, Vince McMahon not being around due to neck surgery and how that affected the week’s shows, and the Governor of Maryland proclaiming his love of Hulk Hogan. We also go over Jerry Lawler using a trash can on Duke Droese on Raw and then apologizing for it, The Great Sasuke talking retirement, AAA & UWA's relationship falling apart, Sabu vs. Cactus Jack happening for the first time at ECW Hostile City Showdown, Reggie B. Fine stealing Frankie the bird from Koko Ware in Memphis, Sabu debuting on the west coast, Tonya Harding managing Art Barr & Eddie Guerrero on a bomb of a show, and the WCW section of all WCW sections to close it down. Yes, it’s of Clash of the Champions 27 in Charleston, complete with Hulk Hogan’s live debut, the world title unification, WCW spoiling the results on Main Event days earlier This was a tremendous show, so you’d better not miss it!!!!
