Memphis Wrestling TV Report 8.16.08

----Corey Maclin opens the show saying he is Atlanta, GA to talk with Buff Bagwell. Video was shaky. Show then opens with Jerry Lawler and Corey Maclin. They talk about the show being listed as “paid programming” and such. It is listed as “Memphis Wrestling” on Direct TV this week.

----Maclin/Lawler talk about Cody Rhodes/Ted Dibiase and tagging with Jim Duggan. Jim Duggan vs Executioner #2 with Big Daddy. This is also from a New England Championship Wrestling DVD – they have featured matches from this area for all three weeks. Match was boring, but crowd was hot.

----Maclin/Lawler go over the lineup for the Delta Fair show: Lawler vs Bagwell, Brian Christopher vs Chris Masters [just added to show], Eugene, “Too Kool 2” [Tim Grind/Flex], Koko Ware, Mr. Hughes, Derrick King/Johnny Dotson vs “Los Locos”, Kid Kash and “Nature Boy” Kevin White. Solid line up for the show.

----Derrick King/Johnny Dotson interview talking about beating “Los Locos” for the OVW Southern Tag Team Titles. “Los Locos” interview airs next.

----Kid Kash/Kevin White vs Pat Tanaka/Koko Ware from Autozone Park. Kash does phone interview with Maclin during the match. From that match to TK2 vs Kash/Koko from last year. Kash says he will face anyone.

----“Wrestling Professor” and Guy Coffee join the show. Mr. Coffee says he has been involved in wrestling in Memphis since 1953. Wow! 10.19.85 is the date – Bill Dundee turns on Lawler angle – involving the “Fabulous Ones” [Steve Keirn/Stan Lane]. Dundee is so good here. Dundee puts his hair on the line on TV. Finish not shown, but Dundee won the Southern Title that day.

----Maclin interviews Bagwell from his home. Camera work on this was horrible. It made me dizzy. Bagwell talks about being a big Lawler fan. Maclin says that Bagwell wants to win, so he can go back to New York. Bagwell says he is 38 years old and still in shape.

----Listed as “Northeast Wrestling” [is this the same place??] – Jerry Lawler vs Ricky Landell. They bill him as being Buddy Landell’s nephew. Landell starts heat with foreign object. He continues to hide it and works it the whole match. Was he train by Don Bass?? Lawler gets object uses it on him, pulls down strap and piledrives him. Not all of it was shown.

----Chris Masters interview airs next. Masters promises the “Master-lock”. Brian Christopher interview next. Brian talks about Scotty coming to be his partner again.

----Maclin/Lawler close the show putting over the Delta Fair show again.


----They did a good job putting over the show coming up to Delta Fair this coming Saturday night in Memphis, TN. Show is free with fair admission, so this is a SOLD show…Duggan was wearing those dreaded blue shorts. I just have a fear of “something” falling out of those. Ugh!... Maclin talked about having a special guest for Lawler, but they never had anyone??...Be sure to vote in the Memphis Wrestling TV Poll for this week.
