----This was packed with stuff we haven’t seen in a while on TV. The picture quality was horrible though…Funny thing about “hardcore” matches – this Concession stand brawl is the origin of hardcore – it all happened AFTER the match…Those scallfold matches were just horrible!!!...Eight man tag had a “Nightmare” in it – I think it was Danny Davis. At least they didn’t show that damn Rock N Roll vs Nightmares match AGAIN!! Who were the Heartbreakers???...Mantell vs Lawler was always good. Dutch was good on the mic. They did the old Rich/Gilbert angle though, which originally was a Gilbert/Wayne angle… The show has turned into every break Corey talking about himself running for office. I thought there was an equal time law or something?? But, I guess if he is paying for the programming, it does not matter. Funny how he got that site up, but couldn’t keep a Memphis Wrestling site going.
