Lawler Talks About The New Memphis Wrestling Show!!

----Jerry "The King" Lawler had the following to say in local Memphis sports magazine about the new Memphis Wrestling show.

What’s Going On Memphis Wrestling Right Now?

“It has been in reruns because Clear Channel sold some stations and our CW30 was one of them. We were asked to go to reruns so they could show a better bottom line. They were probably spending around $6,000 a week on the production of our show, and recouping the cost through sales. In the mean time, WWE decided to leave CW and we are going to change as well. We are going to MyNetworkTV and back to Saturday mornings at 11:00 o’clock. They don’t have a studio, but we are in talks with Southland Park abut taping it there.”

----Thanks to "Ratings Man" Ron Guidry for giving us the "heads up" on this story and Chad Anderson has it over at 901Blog also. You can got to and read the whole story. I really think if Southland Park can get a studio "feel" to it, then it would be a good place to tape TV. Access to the Park is right off the interstate and would be good for them. I know I am not the only one thinking this, but doesn't Lawler look to be showing his age on the cover??
