Between the Sheets #168 (October 3-9, 1991) (Featuring Jose Fernandez)


Recommended Posts


Kris & David are joined by Jose Fernandez (@pantherwagner) to discuss the week that was October 3-9, 1991. We talk about Paul E. Dangerously being suspended for possibly leaking details of a Jerry Lawler/Lex Luger title unification match to Eddie Gilbert and the fallout from that. We also discuss other WCW wackiness, 2 Cold Scorpio turning heads in New Japan, the big Luchador strike in Mexico, Eddie Gilbert & Jerry Lawler trying to unify titles themselves in Memphis, and Hulk Hogan’ “Suburban Commando” media tour, plus Jose gives us his live rundown of the WWF debut in Barcelona, Spain. Really a fantastic show and a definite must-listen!!!!!!

Absolutely loved Jose Fernandez as a guest, I enjoyed this episode tremendously and especially loved his insight of the different perception the international audience like in Spain or Europe overall would remember WWF as especially the story about the commentator making up nicknames for the wrestlers that became what many remembered them as. If he could ever compile a list I'd enjoy hearing more of them because they had me laughing all week.

I haven't been on PWO in a while but best believe that I never miss BTS!

Thank you for doing back to back '91 shows! I was like a kid and remember every detail including watching Tues Texas live! "Hogan must get even!"

What a great time in sports history. Barcelona Olympics was 1st Olympics that I remember watching that summer'92. From the legendary Great American Muhammad Ali's torch moment to NBCs coverage daily.

Please continue with shows before '95.

** I still haven't watched Suburban Commando. I saw No Holds Barred in the theater and luved it! 2nd time in theatre   i was 7. Harry and the Hendersons was 1st movie I saw. Babysitter took my older sister & me.
