Kris & David are guestless for this week's episode of Between the Sheets, where we will be talking about the (almost) week that was July 28-August 2, 1992.

  • We talk about Ron Simmons becoming the WCW World Heavyweight Champion in shocking fashion at the TV tapings in Baltimore, including the importance of the win and just the overall greatness of the moment in general. We also talk about what led up to Simmons getting the shot at Big Van Vader, specifically the big angle with Jake Roberts making his surprise debut attacking Sting, Vader’s originally-scheduled challenger. We also talk about the other happenings at the Baltimore taping, as well as other news and views, including a Mike Mooneyham column about the morale in WCW under Bill Watts, which was quite the read.
  • We then go international, talking about Jumbo Tsuruta's "injury" that’s about to shake up AJPW, FMW & W*ING doing big business without television, the AAA wrestlers forming their own union in Mexico, and lots more.
  • Then we go back to the U.S. for Ricky Morton sending in a promo to SMW TV to undo his WCW heel turn, Reno Riggins making quite the debut in Memphis, Global Wrestling Federation and BIG D craziness from Dallas, and much more.
  • We then close with the WWF, where we talk about Randy Savage appearing on The Arsenio Hall Show, plans for Ric Flair at SummerSlam, Nailz cutting a promo on TV for the first time, and the end of the WBF.
