Ep. #273: October 20-27, 1986 with Mike Sempervive
Kris & David are joined by Mike Sempervive (@Sempervive) to discuss the week-plus that was October 20-27, 1986. We talk about Dusty Rhodes and Nikita Koloff’s formation of the Super Powers after Magnum T.A.'s tragic car wreck, including the awesome clips from the card where Nikita turns, plus Dusty being jumped by the Horsemen in the parking lot of the JCP offices, as well as the Super Powers’ first promo on TBS. We also talk about the Road Warriors revealing the scaffold match for Starrcade, Ric Flair cancelling his AJPW tour, Dave Meltzer’s surprising thoughts on Continental TV, Chris Adams going to federal prison, Missy Hyatt dumping John Tatum for Eddie Gilbert, Sunshine debuting on UWF TV, Brian Adias turning on the Von Erichs, and Dutch Savage returning to Portland. And in the WWF we talk about Adrian Adonis being "fired,” the mass exodus of Montreal talent to the WWF, Jim Troy talking about WWF's Japanese prospects, and tons more. That’s just scratching the surface on another great 80's show, so don't miss out!!!!
