Memphis Wrestling Results-April 25, 2009
Corey Maclin welcomed everyone to the show and said that coming up on the program there would be some highlights from the latest Minglewood Hall event, an Opening the Vaults classic match featuring "The Dream Machine", and the special announcement from "The Mouth of the South" Jimmy Hart.
Minglewood Hall footage with Su Yung in action against Veronica Fairchild. Fairchild was taking it to Su Yung, until Su decided to distract Referee Jerry Calhoun in the corner. While the referee had his back turned, this sparked "The New Nature Boy" Kevin White to jump in and suplex Fairchild from behind. This led to the easy victory for Su Yung. Following the match, Su Yung and Kevin White continued their relentless attack on Fairchild as White held Fairchild while Yung chopped, kicked, punched, and choked her. Jerry "The King" Lawler and Queen Renee ran down to save the day. It wasn't long until the one-on-one matchup between Renee and Su Yung got underway. Queen Renee picked up the win after "The King" tripped up Su Yung as she was running the ropes.
Video of "The Mouth of the South" Jimmy Hart in sunny Tampa, Florida. Hart said, "Corey Maclin, I know your secret." Jimmy told everyone to call somebody because there's a major announcement, coming up, later in the show. He can't wait, Baby! Hahaha!
Minglewood Hall footage, featuring "Outlaw" Don Bass, managed by "Hollywood" Jimmy Blaylock taking on "Superstar" Bill Dundee in a true clash of the legends. Bass got the upper hand early on as "Hollywood" fired up the crowd, by saying things such as, "Don Bass is a true legend in this business and you see what he's doing to this stupid midget!" "You know what? I don't wanna hear no, "Go, Bill, go!" I'll come out there and slap everyone of you people! I'm serious!", and "Hey! You shut your mouth, you old hag!"
Throughout the match, Don took it to Bill with his trusty chain. I tell ya, that Don Bass is a magician when it comes to that chain. "Hollywood" also made his presence known at ringside as he kept Referee Calhoun in line, choked Dundee, and also nailed "The Superstar" with his briefcase. Bill ended up grabbing the chain out of Don's hand and hitting Don with it. Dundee pinned Bass and got the three count, but the match was quickly restarted because Bass had his foot on the rope. As soon as it restarted, "Hollywood" grabbed Dundee and was holding him while Bass got the briefcase. Donnie would follow with a swing and a miss as Dundee moved, but he blasted "Hollywood" with the briefcase. It made a loud thump. Ouch! This gave Dundee the perfect opportunity to roll up Don and get the three count.
XOW promoter, Billy Russ, was spotted at ringside taking some great pictures for the Wrestling News Center. Those are some of the ones posted above.
More action from Minglewood Hall with King Cobra in action against Derrick King. Derrick was hilarious and entertaining, as always. At one point, while Derrick and Cobra were having a test of strength, as soon as they locked hands, Derrick started screaming. That was some funny stuff, right there. Another funny moment came when Derrick went off on the referee after a two count, by yelling, "Dadgummit, Calhoun! Count to three!" King Cobra won with a roll up, much to the dismay of Derrick.
Video of "The Mouth of the South" Jimmy Hart announcing that Corey Maclin is running for County Clerk.
Following the video, Corey confirmed that he is indeed making a bid for Shelby County Clerk in 2010. Corey said he has heard that it's been all over the wrestling websites, as of late. He said that The Wrestling Insider and The Fight Network have contacted him and he will be doing live interviews on those, but he won't do anything or go any further until he tells the great Memphis Wrestling fans what he's doing. He guarantees that he will do that very soon and would appreciate your support. Corey said, "I want you to know because I've had a lot of people say, Man, what about wrestling? Corey, if you are going to get involved and run, what is going to happen when you win Shelby County Clerk? Well, we are still going to have wrestling, every Saturday morning because if it wasn't for you fans, there wouldn't be a Corey Maclin. There wouldn't be a Memphis Wrestling and I really appreciate that. I thank you, so many years, down through the years, for all your support. So, I tell ya, we won't forget the one that dance with us and all you fans dance with me for so many years. We are going to make sure that wrestling stays on the air or may be able to do even bigger and better things. I look forward to it."
Minglewood Hall footage with "The New Nature Boy" Kevin White with Su Yung in action against the newest inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame, "The Birdman" Koko B. Ware. At the beginning of the match, Kevin was running from Koko, so Koko got on the mic and asked Kevin, "Did you come here to wrestle? Or did you come here to act like a prissy sissy?" Of course, this led to a loud sissy chant aimed towards White. During the match, Su Yung would choke Koko. In the end, "The Birdman" got the win after connecting with a DDT on White.
Opening the Vaults from USWA with Jerry "The King" Lawler battling one of his biggest nemesis, "The Dream Machine" Troy Graham at the Mid-South Coliseum. This was a Coward's Way Out match with no referee. The match continues until one man leaves the arena and goes back to the dressing room. This was a wild and bloody brawl for the Unified World Heavyweight title. These two gave each other all they could handle, but, finally, it was "The Dream Machine" that was sent running to the back after Lawler threw a fireball in his face. Here's a video I found of this match, courtesy of rasslinriotonline.com
Corey ended the show by announcing that next week they are going to bring us the footage from the big main event from Minglewood Hall, featuring "Dangerous" Doug Gilbert and "Wildfire" Tommy Rich against "Grandmasta Sexay" Brian Christopher and Jerry "The King" Lawler.
