Japanese professional wrestler
Welcome to Card Foundation Podcast Episode 91! This week, we look ahead to 2023 and what we want to see for the wrestling card hobby! Plus, we discuss PSA 9s versus CSG 9.5s, Jushin Thunder Liger rookie cards, the new Panini Instant cards, and so much more!
The very first ever TNA Bound for Glory took place in 2005 and even though it was dubbed as the company's biggest show of the year, not everything was a hit. One major miss was putting Jeff Jarrett against Kevin Nash in the main event. Jeff Jarrett just screwed Raven out of the World Title and Raven was kept away from the main event. Meanwhile, Kevin Nash got legitimately sent to the hospital, leaving Jarrett without an opponent. That lead to this becoming the night of...Rhino...for whatever reason. Also on this card, the Ultimate X match plays host to a pretty bad botch. Samoa Joe has a pretty good match with Jushin Thunder Liger. AMW defends the NWA Tag Titles against the Naturals...again. There's a fairly entertaining Monster's Ball. We also get the return of a legendary tag-team. In the news, a Midwest wrestling legend has passed away, Jim Ross may be gone from the WWE as the McMahons make an offer to a possible replacement, Team 3D isn't pleased about losing a trademark battle, and Ken Shamrock continues his MMA downfall.ALL PODCAST, SOCIAL MEDIA, & MERCHANDISE LINKS: linktr.ee/MainEventMarksCHECK OUT OUR MERCHANDISE: MainEventMarks.redbubble.com & bonfire.com/store/maineventmarksGET FUELED WITH SHOCKED ENERGY: https://shockedenergy.com/collections/all?sca_ref=1814354.mOXH7RrwKh&sca_source=MainEventMarks (promo code: MainEvent for 10% off)KEEP YOUR COFFEE GIMMICK FREE AND FRESH ROASTED TO ORDER WITH COFFEE BRAND COFFEE: https://coffeebrandcoffee.com/?ref=WC7vE0tK (promo code: MAINEVENT for 5% off)GET AWESOME SPORTS T-SHIRTS: intheclutch.com/MAINEVENT (use code "MAINEVENT" for 10% off)ORDER FROM SWIFT LIFESTYLES: SwiftLifestyles.com, use PROMO CODE: MainEventMarks at checkout for 15% offLISTEN EVERY WEDNESDAY AT 9PM EST: tikilive.com/channel/BURNS

Slamboree was originally an event that began in 1993 and was subtitled: "A Legends Reunion." The event was the brainchild of Dusty Rhodes, but in 1996 it looked nothing like the original one. The 1996 version featured Sting versus the Giant for the WCW World Title, Dean Malenko against Brad Armstrong for the WCW Cruiserweight Title and Konnan against Jushin "Thunder" Liger for the United State Title. It also featured a tag team "Lethal Lottery" with some sort of Battlebowl-Lord of the Ring-Earn a world title shot-nonsense. Hey, it was WCW, right? And it was pre-NWO, so there was plenty of nonsense, right?

Kris & David are back this week with another episode of Between the Sheets, this time a Patreon request, as Nick Masci wanted us to talk about the week of April 19th-25th, 1989. And as a special treat, we are joined again by Beau James (@kingofkingsport) in all of the American sections. Nick wanted us to talk about New Japan's first show at the Tokyo Dome, Battle Satellite, and we do just that, as we talk about the importance of the event — tracing the history of Antonio Inoki — as well as a full rundown of this major, historically important show that featured the debut of the Jushin Thunder Liger gimmick and Shinya Hashimoto getting drafted back from Memphis so he could become a star overnight. Among other international topics, we also talk about AJPW going to a more "traditional" pro wrestling style to counter NJPW & UWF going to a more a "worked shoot" style. We also discuss The State of the WWF after WrestleMania and the then-annual “off-season,” featuring Hulk Hogan & Randy Savage starting their massively successful post-WM house show run, the stiffness of Ronnie Garvin vs. Greg Valentine, Dusty Rhodes making big claims in Florida, Beau getting the skinny directly from Dr. Tom Prichard to set the record straight on the stories of him going to the NWA in 1989, the amazing Nick Gulas/Robert Fuller/Jeff Jarrett angle in Memphis, the equally amazing Eric Embry/Skandor Akbar angle in World Class, The State of the NWA six months after the Turner takeover, and a ton more.This is a fantastic show, so listen now!!!!!Timestamps:0:00:00 Int'l: NJPW, AJPW, Stampede, EMLL, UWA, Tijuana, & WWC1:08:20 WWF2:40:52 Classic Commercial Break2:43:20 Halftime3:05:44 Other USA: ProStar, GA wrestling commission bill, Peach State, FCW, CWF, CWA, WCCW, AWA, NCWA, & Portland5:12:45 NWA/WCW6:36:21 Patreon Preview: The WWF issues a press release bragging about WrestleMania III's record-breaking attendance…of 88,000?!?!?!?To support the show and get access to exclusive rewards like special members-only monthly themed shows, go to our Patreon page at Patreon.com/BetweenTheSheets and become an ongoing Patron.
