Kris & David are joined by Beau James (@KingofKingsport) to discuss the week-plus that was March 21-31, 1986. We talk about Joe "Nighthawk" Coltrane entering JCP, as well as the major heel turn by Pistol Pez Whatley on Jimmy Valiant, which sparked some of the best promo work of both guys' careers. Beau also tells a great Paul Jones Army story that can't be missed. We also talk about Ric Flair getting Ricky Morton a training bra, the Freebirds raising hell in Montreal of all places, the birth of the Universal Wrestling Federation, Dave Meltzer disparaging Waylon Jennings, Roddy Piper getting really involved in his boxing training for WrestleMania 2, and so much more. And, of course, this week also features one of the greatest segments in Memphis history: Yes, we talk about THE BILL & BUDDY SHOW!!!!!
