This Wednesday on WrestleZone, it’s This Tuesday in Texas, as The Lapsed Fan podcast team goes in on the WWF’s 1991 Tuesday night pay-per-view experiment, headlined by Hulk Hogan v. The Undertaker II and an unforgettable Jake Roberts/Macho Man/Elizabeth angle.

Hosts Jack Encarnacao and JP Sarro have your meditation on the somewhat awkward Hogan/Flair/Taker dynamic of the time, and a detailed analysis of what made the Jake Roberts and Randy Savage angle – which took a shocking turn on this show – one of the best pieces of business the WWF ever put together.

Your co-chairmen touch on a range of other TTIT related topics, including:

– The improvised entrance theme Jack used for Skinner in his Hasbro action figure league
– Why Jake Roberts is among the greatest promos ever, and an appraisal of the spine-tingling lines he drops on a shocked audience
– Undertaker no-selling
– The best Warlord match
– How hard the show was to find on VHS
– Idle speculation about why Hogan had to use a handful of embalmed corpse ash to defeat Undertaker
– The air coming out of the balloon of the Hogan/Flair program

That and so much more, including discussion of some clutch feedback the panel has received from Lapsed Fans like you on questions raised on prior podcast.
