----Show is opened with Corey Maclin, Jerry Lawler and Jimmy Hart at Lawler’s home. [In his Coca-Cola room - they even make a joke about the jukebox] They talk about the WWE Hall of Fame and he pretty much tries to smooth over the fact that he is not old, but is in the Hall of Fame. [He will only be 58 this year; right??] They then announce that Hulk Hogan will be on the phone.
----The show then switches to the studio, so it looks like we will have stuff sliced in to the video taped from last Saturday. Reggie B Fine/Mr. Hughes/Bob Fury interview. Fine/Hughes/Fury beat “The Posse” [Lil Chris/Simon]/Tatt2. They cut this match. Fury is horrible!!! Heat on Simon with hot tag used as a hope spot to Chris. They get the heat on Chris. Pretty much a squash.
----Clip is shown from Monday at Memphis Grizzles game with Corey Maclin. Koko Ware comes out with a title belt?? Grizz sprays silly string on Koko. Corey also interviews Jerry Lawler and Jimmy Hart at the game to the crowd. This had to help them with their crowd. Grizz gives Hart Grizzlies cap and jersey to try to “bribe” Hart. Koko interview after that looking for Grizz backstage. Then Maclin is interviewing Grizz and Koko chases Grizz away.
----Kevin White comes out as the “New Nature Boy” with a new robe. The robe looked real cheesy. I hate them calling him “Nature Boy”, but love the interviews and the heel Kevin White. Bill Dundee joins Corey during the next match. Johnny Dotson by DQ over White. Dotson comes out of the heat and he does the 10 punches corner spot. The ref makes him get down and then White hits Dotson with a chain.
----Hulk Hogan is on the phone at Lawler’s house with Corey/Jimmy Hart. Hogan comes off as a heel. He talks about Lawler still showing that clip of Lawler vs him from 25 years ago. Hogan agrees to the match. Lawler signs a contract and Hart is given it to bring it to Hogan to sign. Hogan keeps saying, “it is up to you Corey to make this happen now..” This was a great segment and I guess Hogan’s asking price of $10,000 does not seem to be that much to them now.
----Koko Ware/Pokerface with Rashard interview. Koko says something about Tojo Yamamoto being proud of him. What?? This is horrible. Pokerface was wearing that crazy hat and an unibrow. Koko calls Corey a “negro”. Poker/Koko beat Chris O’Neal/K-Hill – match was real sloppy. Heat on O’Neal with hot tag to K-Hill. Hill looked good on the hot tag. Koko interferes to help Poker pin Hill.
RassleNotes: Fury talked on the interview. He was horrible doing that also. I really hope I don’t have to start asking this every week about “The Posse”, but why kill them with a stiff like Fury??...The Koko/Grizz stuff was funny seeing Koko try to run after Grizz. It was clear that there is no way he could catch him. It was good seeing them get the rub from the Grizzles, but the Grizz vs Koko bout was last night, so the air time to promote that match was wasted. Unless..they plan on a long time program with Grizz vs Koko..LOL Ok, I am sorry. It’s
