We hear from Jerry "The King" Lawler, who is excited about Memphis Wrestling returning, live, to "The Bluff City" at the beautiful White Station High School Gym, which seats about four thousand people and is right in the heart of east Memphis. On Saturday, February 28th, you will see such classics as: "Outlaw" Don Bass, Former World Champion King Cobra, and "The New Nature Boy" Kevin White. A Diva Match is on hand. Then, "Too Sexy" Brian Christopher is taking on "Dangerous" Doug Gilbert in a Hardcore Match. "Superstar" Bill Dundee is also coming back to Memphis to be in action on Saturday, February 28th. "Psycho" Sid Vicious and Jerry "The King" Lawler. Jerry said, "I've had some serious battles with "Psycho" Sid and I can't wait for this one because he's ran his mouth and I'm gonna take this fist and I'm gonna shut that big mouth of his once and for all!" There's also going to be a big 10-Man Over The Top-Rope Battle Royal, with $10,000 going to the winner. Lawler ended by saying, "Saturday, February 28th, don't you dare miss it! White Station High School. Memphis Classic Wrestling returns, live, to "The Bluff City". Be there!"
Corey said that just thinking about that gymnasium at White Station High School, reminds him of the old Mid-South Coliseum.
Corey talked about Eugene. This included Corey mentioning that when he brought Eugene in for a show, he took him to Chuck E. Cheese's. We go to footage of Eugene in action.
Delta Fair Footage with Eugene & "The Birdman" Koko B. Ware going the time limit with Kid Kash & "The New Nature Boy" Kevin White, with Su Yung and Garry White at ringside. Fans started chanting for five more minutes. They restarted the match. Eugene got the win with a Great Khali brain chop, following a misconnection from White and Kash. Fun match with all of Eugene's shenanigans that the kids love.
We take a look at some pictures of Jimmy Hart's First Family, which included pics of The Moondogs, "The Universal Heartthrob" Austin Idol, "Dirty" Dutch Mantel, The Dream Machine, and "Handsome" Jimmy Valiant. This was followed by some classic footage of The First Family.
Up first, was a classic promo from big Joe Leduc, where he talked about Austin Idol.
This was followed by some more footage of Jimmy Hart sharing with us, Joe Leduc's intense workout regimen, which consisted of Joe pulling a two ton car outside of the Mid-South Coliseum.
Then, a classic bout was shown, featuring First Family members, "Ravishing" Rick Rude & Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart with Jimmy Hart against "Hot Stuff" Eddie Gilbert & "Wildfire" Tommy Rich. Rude and Neidhart tied Eddie up in between the two ropes, where he was stuck choking for a long, long, time. Rude and Neidhart, then, directed their attention toward punishing Rich. A young Doug Gilbert came down to help get his brother out of the ropes, but had some trouble. Rude and Neidhart were disqualified. Then, all hell broke loose as "Dirty" Dutch Mantel, Mad Dog, and Robert Reed ran out to help, but were taken out, immediately. Finally, Jerry "The King" Lawler ran out with a head of steam. He pulled the strap down and punched away at Neidhart. Unfortunately, it was short lived because Humongous ambushed Lawler, busting him open. "The Universal Heartthrob" Austin Idol tried his luck, but was stopped, suddenly, by a flying "Macho Man" Randy Savage, who jumped off the top-rope and nailed Idol with a baseball bat. Savage followed this up by delivering his trademark, flying elbow drop. Finally, Doug managed to pry Eddie loose from the ropes, but Savage was there waiting to suplex him into the ring. Eddie Marlin made his way out to the ring to restore order. No chance. When Lawler, Rich, and Mantel started to make a comeback, The First Family decided to evacuate the area. On their way out, Eddie Gilbert landed a couple chair shots on the fleeing Rude and Neidhart.
Following the footage, WWE Hall of Famer, "The Mouth of the South" Jimmy Hart joined the program, via telephone. Hart said he's got a busy month lined up, which includes a trip to Iraq to Salute the Troops with Nasty Boy Brian Knobbs and Greg "The Hammer" Valentine. Jimmy also plugged the new Legends of WrestleMania videogame, which drops on March 27, that will feature him in the game and on the game's cover. Jimmy said the biggest thrill for him has always been Memphis Wrestling, where he started and put together The First Family of Professional Wrestling. Jimmy mentioned a host of names that he's managed. These included: Austin Idol, Dutch Mantel, "Handsome" Jimmy Valiant, Dream Machine, The Moondogs, Koko B. Ware, "The Ugandan Giant" Kamala, Joe Leduc, "Wildfire" Tommy Rich, and "Hot Stuff" Eddie Gilbert. Hart told Corey that if it wasn't for Memphis Wrestling and Jerry "The King" Lawler getting him into professional wrestling, he wouldn't be talking to you, today. As the interview was ending, Jimmy said that he heard Corey may be running for office and might need him to be his campaign manager.
Following the interview, Corey was joking about wanting to know what kind of vitamins that Jimmy Hart takes because he's always so hyper.
Corey brought up the fact that if "Psycho" Sid Vicious loses this Saturday night at White Station High School, that he's going to give everyone in the arena their money back.
They showed the same Sid Vicious interview from the gym from a couple weeks ago. In case you missed it, it went a little something like this. Their cameras caught up with Jerry "The King" Lawler's opponent for February 28th, "Psycho" Sid Vicious, who was working out in the gym in West Memphis. As the camera approached Sid, he was in the middle of a vigorous workout, "One thousand one! One thousand two! One thousand three! Oh, George! You're back! Yeah, that's right, Lawler! I'm getting ready for February 28th. I'm not sitting around, eating Twinkies and cheesy puffs, all day, like yourself! I'm taking this seriously. So serious, yeah! My confidence is high? Yeah, it's high. My conviction is high? Yeah. For you, Jerry Lawler, February 28th, expect me to give a refund to people if I lose? Well! I don't lose, Lawler. You understand! I don't lose. Because I got great people like Buzz, here, that's going to be there, that night. (Camera zooms in on the young man working out) No, stop that! Alright! So, he bites people, once in a while. Say, he does those kinds of things. The mentally challenged. He had a couple hiccups in his life, but he moves forward, Lawler. Like I'm going to move forward and I'm gonna move right past you and right on to victory lane! And you can't stop me! You can't stop me! No one can stop me. Why? Because I'm Sid Vicious. I am The Master and I am The Ruler...of The World!"
Following Sid's interview, Corey reiterated that if Sid Vicious cannot pin the shoulders of Jerry "The King" Lawler down on the mat for the three count, he's going to cough up a lot of money.
We take a look at "Dirty" Dutch Mantel in a wild and crazy brawl with Abdullah the Butcher. Abdullah used his fork. He never goes anywhere without it, as you can tell by looking at him. Things weren't going too well for Dutch, until he managed to grab Shoe Baby and use it on "The Madman from Sudan". This had the big man reeling for a few moments, but he quickly took back over. Both men were a bloody mess. Chicky Starr gave Abdullah a coat hanger, in which, he choked Dutch with. Abdullah would not release the choke, so the ref had no choice, but to disqualify him. Finally, Chicky Starr got Abdullah to release his chokehold on Dutch. As Abdullah was leaving, he grabbed the promoter, by the head, and drove him into the ground. Dr. Hector Gonzalez came down to take a look at a beaten and battered Dutch Mantel.
Corey ran through all the talent that we've seen, during the show. He mentioned that Dutch Mantel is employed with TNA.
Corey ended the program, reminding everyone about the big night, this Saturday, February 28th, at White Station High School Gym, located at 516 S. Perkins @ Poplar. Bell time 7:30. Tickets available at Spin Street or call (901)246-2711. Corey said he'll be looking for you, next week.
