Kris & David are joined by "The Bone Collector" Dominic Garrini (@dgarrinibc) to discuss the week that was December 1-7, 1996, a show requested by Jared Hunt after dropping $25 on our Patreon. We start with the UFC and their big Ultimate Ultimate 2 PPV show, which Dave Meltzer was in attendance for. Dave gives a full rundown of the fight week wackiness along with all of the happenings during the card…and there were a lot of them. We then go to the WWF, talking about WWF & AAA hooking up to try and sell out the Alamo Dome in San Antonio for the Royal Rumble, babyfaces and heels blurring the lines more than ever before, as well as Shawn Michaels having a bad night in Poughkeepsie, New York when the fans were getting to him. (His first WWF trip to upstate NY since being assaulted in Syracuse over a year earlier, to boot.) We also talk about the birth of Samurai TV! in Japan and the impact that would have on the business there and tape collectors abroad, as well as all of the other major news there. We then go to Mexico, talking about the legendary Hijo del Santo vs. El Dandy vs. Negro Casas lucha de apuestas tearing up Arena Mexico, Raven regaining the ECW Title from the Sandman in a barbed wire match at the ECW Arena, the Nation of Domination running wild in the USWA with the debut of Queen Moesha, the beginning of the end of Paul Alperstein’s AWF, and then close with WCW. A wild Monday Nitro features Scott Hall & Kevin Nash having an amazing night of commentary when nobody expected it...literally, and much more. A tremendous show here, folks, so you know the drill...LISTEN NOW!!!!!!!!
