Memphis Wrestling TV Rumors and Gossip

----I got the following ramblings from various sources backstage at Memphis TV tapings from last Saturday: Memphis Wrestling site is down…”Cowboys” [Ricky Murdoch/Bill Nasty] got pissed and stormed out of the dressing room because they were not scheduled to be on the tapings…Ricky Morton stole the show backstage. He had everyone in tears telling road stories about them and Bill Dundee...A “Legends” show is planned for March…There are plans to run house shows including possible Thursday and Friday shows at a casino in Tunica, MS…Jon Michael had the flu…Flame was heard saying he messed up their match on the second show and it might be because Tatt2/Chris O’Neal called so many spots before going out…Chris Rocker was back at the studio [arrested there a few weeks ago for child support I believe] and he will probably be back at the next tapings…They really wanted Hogan vs Lawler. Apparently Maclin was telling everyone that Hogan wanted $100,000 to do the show?? That sounds like way too much…Drew Donavon was getting his ass chewed by Derrick King for trying to make himself look good. DK told him something about the match being about him, not Donavon, which is true. Drew is a jobber!!...Ricky Morton said working FOP was like working a fencepost – stiff and wouldn’t move. LOL… The most distasteful part of the day Koko said in front of Robert Gibson that he told a friend that the R&R Express would be at Memphis today and the guy said, “Not Robert and Ricky cause Ricky’s dead [Ricky Gibson] and Koko said, “No not him he did drown, but the other Ricky would be there.” Robert was very hurt as you could tell by the expression on his face.
