Jerry Lawler's Classic Memphis Wrestling Report-June 9, 2018

At the beginning of the show Jerry Lawler introduced his longtime band member, Tom Nunnery who played "World's Greatest Wrestler" throughout the broadcast.  Then, Lawler introduced this week's special guest, Former WWE World Tag-Team Champion, 26-Time Southern Heavyweight Champion and Jerry Lawler's son, "Grand Master Sexay" Brian Christopher Lawler.

Before they aired the scheduled clip of the first ever Unified title match between father and son, Brian requested that they show the video of him and his famous little red wagon carrying all of his championships.  Brian said that fans still come up to him today telling him how the little red wagon was their favorite moment.

Also during the title match, The Harlem Knights got involved attacking Lawler.  They would later go on to become Mabel and Moe, Men on a Mission in the WWE.  And of course Mabel would later be renamed Viscera.

Following the commercial, Brian made fun of musician, Tom Nunnery, and plugged his cd.  He mentioned that there is even a song featuring a duet with Jerry Lawler titled, "Puppies."

Next, they highlighted Brian's beginnings from his start as one half of The New Kids tag-team with Tony Williams to his successful singles career with these videos which featured The Fabulous Ones, Jeff Jarrett and Lex Luger.

They wrapped up the show by playing a classic moment featuring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.  This video was The Rock's first appearance on Memphis Wrestling.  Brian Christopher actually introduced The Rock, who's name was Flex Kavana at the time.  Christopher and Kavana competed in a tag-team match against Jerry Lawler and "Superstar" Bill Dundee.

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