Kris & David are back this week with Keith Harris (@glasgowkjh) to discuss the week-plus that was July 12-19, 2005, which Keith requested as a $100 Patreon pick.

  • We start off talking about WWE and the backlash from the Muhammad Hassan "terrorist" angle with The Undertaker that aired hours after the 7/7 attack in London and how that blew up in their faces, causing them to backtrack heavily. We also talk about SmackDown & Raw, which is always wild to look back at in this era, as well as Triple H gaining more office duties, Earl Hebner getting fired, Matt Hardy & Lita appearing on Byte This in an infamous moment, and much more.
  • We then go to Japan where we start off with Shinya Hashimoto's funeral and then move on to Destiny, the massive NOAH Tokyo Dome show that Keith attended, which was the reason why he picked this week. We talk about all the matches and other happenings from the show, which featured the legendary Kenta Kobashi-Kensuke Sasaki match and the final Toshiaki Kawada-Mitsuharu Misawa singles match. We also talk about some of the other shows Keith went to, plus all of the major results and news for the week.
  • Next up is Mexico & Puerto Rico, where we talk about a very hot period for CMLL, a startup promotion in Puerto Rico that fell apart before they ran a show, and a crazy Bruiser Brody Memorial Show for the WWC.
  • Then we go back to the United States for some Summer of Punk in Ring of Honor — which Dave Meltzer was getting tired of, Charlie Haas returning to JAPW, some other big indie shows, and more.
  • We then close with TNA, which was in a holding pattern of sorts until starting on Spike TV, so we talk about that plus a very interesting NO SURRENDER PPV and much more.

A long, but very fun show, so listen now!!!!!!!!!!!
