Kris and David are joined by Dave Prazak (@DavePrazak) to discuss the week that was October 26-November 1, 1991.

  • We start in WCW where we talk about the CHAMBER OF HORRORS and the rest of the wacky Halloween Havoc 1991 PPV, including Barry Windham getting his hand "broken” by Larry Zbyszko, Paul E. Dangerously’s big return, the debut of the WCW Halloween Phantom/his unmasking as “Ravishing” Rick Rude, and so much more. This is a definite WCW EVERYBODY section, as that PPV is an all-timer, so you definitely don't want to miss it.
  • Then we go international, where we chat about SWS running some big shows, Nobuhiko Takada and Trevor Berbick having a press conference for their upcoming fight, the ongoing strike by the Sindicato Nacional de Luchadores in Mexico, and much more.
  • Next, we go back to the U.S. for the indie scene, where we have Herb Abrams threatening to sue everyone, the real story on Gordon Scozzari and his AWF, Joel Goodhart wanting to run TWA shows in Florida, the birth of Smoky Mountain Wrestling, Dr. Tom Prichard cutting a promo on USWA TV about folks who think he sounds too much like Roddy Piper, and ESPN saving the Global Wrestling Federation, among other things.
  • Then we close with the WWF, where we talk about Ric Flair not doing big business in his first house show run and why that was, Sgt. Slaughter wanting his country back, Steve Beverly going over the state of wrestling on TV, and other assorted goodies.

Prazak is always a fantastic guest, and this week is no different, so you know the drill. And check out the free preview of our latest Patreon show at the end, too!
