Kelso is a hero now he has 'done it' and Jackie actually behaves like his devoted lover, almost his love-slave. Red was excessively strict again with Eric for being late to return library books and furious about a single 'No', but the threat of Kitty nagging constantly forces him to try 'becoming friends' so Red joins the boys -still soon taking the wheel himself- who go to a weird wrestling show in Kanosha, two huge stars against a swarm of midgets. Bob still doesn't get why Midge wants some independence despite him being a fine provider, which her therapy sessions and Laurie's selfish example keep making worse, so Bob begs Red to take him along, and wines to poor Fez, while Hyde just tries to get Bob to buy them beers. Even former wrestler Red enjoys the show. Spoilsport Donna begins to convince Jackie teenage boys are always horny, so why be a doormat if you can...?

The World Wide Wrestling Federation was based in the Northeast during the 1970s. They would never have promoted a show in Wisconsin before Vince K. McMahon took the company national in the 1980s. See more »

Well, I certainly agree with "white_warlock"s comments about the "Nobody knew it was fake" goof. I haven't seen this episode myself, but my understanding is that Red is revealed to have wrestled at some point earlier in his life. Even if most of the general public had NOT realized that pro wrestling was fake (or "worked" in wrestling lingo), then at least someone who had wrestled "for real" in their earlier days would be able to recognize when moves weren't exactly done "just so"...
As for the other goof, it's completely accurate. The WWF was, at the time, known as the WWWF (World Wide Wrestling Federation). This actually could've been worked into the dialog of the show itself, with one of the characters commenting about how it's a "real pain in the a$$" to actually SAY "W.W.W.F.", and that they should just "drop one of those d**n W's!"
