Between the Sheets #139 (March 14-20, 1986)


Recommended Posts



Kris & David are guestless this week to discuss the week that was March 14-20, 1986. We talk about the Crockett Cup press conference which also marked the first big event of the Universal Wrestling Federation. We also discuss how the UWF getting Ken Mantell from World Class affected both promotions and how the first UWF TV taping started the group off with a bang. We also talk about Dave Meltzer’s early thoughts on the WrestleMania 2 card along with great clips and banter involving all the promotions around the world!!!

IIRC the (one of the) first things they aired on the UWF's debut show was that Crockett Cup conference. The UWF tag champs are listed as tenth in the rankings, effectively burying their own product. (edit - you guys and Dave mention this 10 mins later)


Also Watts' verbiage on the Cup's split show jumped out at me: "We have to have an afternoon card to get it out of the way". Buy up those afternoon tickets fans!
