Jerry Lawler's Classic Memphis Wrestling Report-May 26, 2018

 
 
Jerry Lawler is once again joined by Bert Prentice for this week's episode, which featured highlights from when Bret "The Hitman" Hart came to Memphis.  Jerry and Bert also discussed that a few weeks after Bret came to Memphis, Vince McMahon made his first appearance as a "bad guy" in Memphis.  They both talked about how Vince loved it so much that he went back to WWE and started using the character to create some of the best moments ever in popular feuds with the likes of "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and others.
 
Lawler introduced his longtime band member, Tom Nunnery who is always playing "World's Greatest Wrestler."
 
The first video they shared was the beginning of the Lawler/Hart feud back when Bret Hart was crowned the "King of the Ring" in WWE.  Lawler felt like he was the only true "King of Wrestling" and attacked Hart after "The Hitman" called him "Burger King."
 



Lawler noted that Bert Prentice is also a promoter that runs USA Championship Wrestling around Jackson, Tennessee.  Bert Prentice mentioned that he managed a lot of popular stars that came through Memphis during the 80s and 90s which included Bret Hart, Owen Hart, Lex Luger, Papa Shango and Giant Gonzalez.

Up next, we saw a classic promo from Bret and Owen about their upcoming, "Mother of All Matches" against Jerry Lawler and Jeff Jarrett.  Good stuff!



They showed this music video of Jerry Lawler vs Bret Hart from the Mid-South Coliseum.  Lawler told how Bret wasn't used to being booed when he came to Memphis because he was so loved everywhere else as part of the WWE.  A good reason why he was so hated was his allegiance with Bert Prentice at the time.



They showed Giant Gonzalez in action, accompanied by Bert Prentice.



Next was highlights from the tag-team match between Jerry Lawler and Jeff Jarrett versus Bret and Owen Hart.



Lawler picked on Prentice for wearing those plastic Bret Hart sunglasses.  Prentice said he got $375 for those.  The next video they showed was a real treat which featured Jerry Lawler and Jeff Jarrett battling Bret Hart and his partner, The Undertaker!  Lawler was surprised by this footage and didn't remember this match.



Bert Prentice added that the next week Jerry Lawler wrestled Papa Shango at the Mid-South Coliseum.  Lawler told a story about Papa Shango going to the famed Monster Factory to get trained by Larry Sharpe.  Lawler said he paid his money and Sharpe told him to come back the following week, but Sharpe ended up calling him to inform him to go straight to Memphis next week.  He would be wrestling Jerry Lawler.  When he said he wasn't trained yet, Sharpe told him, "Don't worry, you're going to be wrestling Jerry Lawler.  You'll be fine."  He wrestled as "The Soultaker" when he first started in Memphis before going on to become Papa Shango and later The Godfather in the WWE.

They showed the cage match between Jerry Lawler and Bret Hart from the Mid-South Coliseum.  This match also featured appearances by Owen Hart, Jeff Jarrett and Giant Gonzalez.



Jerry Lawler thanked Bert Prentice for bringing these clips of all the talent he managed in Memphis.

Lawler showed a quick preview of an upcoming episode featuring his biggest win in his entire Memphis Wrestling career, his AWA World Heavyweight Championship victory against Curt Hennig from May 9, 1988.

Throughout the episode, they aired commercials from Jerry Lawler's Classic Memphis Wrestling Sponsors:

Jerry Lawler's Classic Memphis Wrestling Report-May 19, 2018

 
This week's episode featured one of Jerry Lawler's all-time classic opponents, "The Dream Machine" Troy Graham.   Dream Machine was brought in to Memphis by "The Mouth of the South" Jimmy Hart, who spotted him in the back of the TV5 studio one Saturday morning with a mask in his pocket, wanting to become a wrestler.  Lawler told the story of how they were short on talent that morning so he sent Hart to find someone to fill in. Dream Machine also ended up being one of the best talkers ever.  Jimmy Hart was unable to be there live in the studio for this week's episode, but Hart requested that another Memphis Wrestling manager, Bert Prentice appear as Lawler's guest this week on his behalf.  Bert Prentice was insulted that it took Lawler eight months to have him on his show.  They began by showing this clip of Dream Machine.
  


Bert Prentice told Lawler that he mistreated every manager that ever came through Memphis and they should all come together, file a class action lawsuit against Lawler and sue him for all the abuse he's put everybody through.  Lawler teased that they want to jump in there with Stormy Daniels, filing lawsuits.  Next up, was this clip of the time Jerry Lawler tarred and feathered Jimmy Hart.



 Lawler introduced his longtime band member, Tom Nunnery who played "World's Greatest Wrestler" as they went to commercial.

The next video was one of the most popular incidents in the history of Memphis Wrestling.  The time Jerry Lawler tarred and feathered The Dream Machine.  Dream Machine was enraged!



Lawler stated that in the wrestling business, everyone knew that no one could touch Lance Russell and Dave Brown.  They were off limits to the wrestlers.  Well, Dream Machine was so upset that he didn't obey the rule on this day and roughed up Lance.



Another video shown from the Jerry Lawler/Dream Machine feud included this one:



Which led to this classic bout at the Mid-South Coliseum.



They show a quick clip of Lawler attacking Bret Hart after Hart won the WWE King of the Ring tournament and called Lawler, "Burger King."  This would lead to quite the feud in Memphis which had Bert Prentice managing Bret Hart and a host of other WWE superstars.  Lawler invited Bert Prentice to come back to relive this classic rivalry.  Prentice promised he would as the show ended by also adding that according to Pro Wrestling Illustrated magazine he cost Lawler to lose the world title more times than any other manager that has come through Memphis.

BREAKING NEWS!! Former pro wrestler severely beaten in apparent dispute over parking spot


                                             




MAR VISTA, Calif. — A former pro wrestler was beaten severely in front of his Mar Vista home Tuesday and neighbors said it all apparently began over a parking dispute. It's been reported as many as six young men beat Tom Magee, who will be 60 in July.
YouTube video shows Magee when he weighed 265 pounds and fought with what was then called WWF in the '80s.
A true Goliath in the ring, Magee later became a neighborhood watchdog.
"Tom came and encountered the young men, and it proceeded to a fight," says friend Kendall Noxxel.


Magee suffered a broken jaw, broken eye socket and concussion.
"It was sort of a conflict over who was allowed to park in this spot," Noxxel said.
A neighbor who was a witness but didn't want to show her face on camera described the horrendous scene.
"They were literally kicking him, punching him in the face and in the head," said the neighbor.
She said six men were involved in the attack. When neighbors came out to see what was going on, the men took off.
When they rushed over to Magee, they said he was incoherent.
"To me, it was attempted murder. If we wouldn't have come out here I don't know if he would be alive. To look at his face if you saw his face right now and saw what they were doing to him, he's really lucky to be alive," the neighbor said.
LAPD robbery detectives are investigating. Thursday afternoon, they said two men were taken into custody. They were identified as Justin Lee, 20, and Degrate Bryant, also 20.
Both have been booked on charges of assault with a deadly weapon.
The arrests provide a sense of relief for neighbors. Not only for their own safety but to let their watchdog know they have his back.
Magee has a long recovery ahead. But he is out of the hospital and recovering at home.
