Memphis Wrestling TV Report 5.02.09

Corey Maclin welcomed everyone to another action packed hour of Memphis Wrestling and gave us a rundown of what's on tap for the show.

Up first, was video of the Main Event that took place at the recent show at Minglewood Hall, featuring Jerry "The King" Lawler and "Grandmasta Sexay" Brian Christopher in action against "Dangerous" Doug Gilbert and "Wildfire" Tommy Rich. During the match, Rich received his fair share of heat from the rowdy Minglewood crowd. Tommy kept warning Referee Jerry Calhoun that Lawler and Christopher were hitting him with a closed fist. Rich and Gilbert gained the advantage when Christopher was punching Rich in the corner and Gilbert snuck up behind him, giving him a low blow. Then, Rich and Gilbert began to punish Christopher by double teaming and choking him with a rope. Finally, a shaken Christopher managed to escape the two and make the tag to the fresh King. Lawler pulled the strap down and took it to Rich and Gilbert. The finish saw Doug Gilbert crash into Tommy Rich from off the top-rope with a chain when Christopher ducked out of the way. Lawler pinned Rich to get the win.

Video of "The Mouth of the South" Jimmy Hart in sunny Tampa, Florida. Hart said he's heading to Memphis to be the campaign manager for Corey Maclin, who's running for County Clerk. Jimmy also sang "Happy Birthday" to Corey Maclin, that celebrated his birthday on Saturday.

Up next, was an entertaining Mixed Tag Match that took place at Chester County High School in Henderson, Tennessee, involving "Superstar" Bill Dundee and Veronica Fairchild against "The New Nature Boy" Kevin White and Su Yung, with Angelina in their corner. Dundee got the win by rolling up White. Fun match that the Henderson crowd enjoyed although I think "The Superstar" had the best seat in the house, being surrounded by the three lovely ladies. Just goes to show you that Dundee is still tha man!

Opening the Vaults of Memphis Classic Wrestling with The Rock 'N Roll Express taking on The Nightmares, managed by The Bee Keeper. The Nightmares picked up the win after striking Ricky Morton with a chain. Following the clip, Corey said they may try to get The Rock 'N Roll Express for the big AutoZone Park show.

Speaking of upcoming action, there will be Live FREE Wrestling at the Super K-Mart in Raliegh at Coleman Rd/Austin Peay Hwy on Saturday, May 23rd with a 1pm bell time. This will be a part of the big Block Party that's taking place on Memorial Day weekend. Corey said they will have the television cameras out there, as well as, lots of free stuff, autographs, and more. They will actually have a wrestling booth set up for all three days of the Block Party.

Jerry "The King" Lawler checked in with us and thanked everyone for attending the show at Minglewood Hall. He said "Wildfire" Tommy Rich has still got it and told everyone to mark Saturday, May 30th, on their calendar because that will be the next Memphis Classic Wrestling show at Minglewood Hall. Visit for more information. Lawler said, "Thursday is, obviously, not a wrestling night for Memphis. It's either Monday, which was always historic Monday, or Saturday night." If you would like to e-mail "The King" you can do so at Plus, there will also be some of the action from Minglewood Hall on the site. Jerry added that just last week, The Rock 'N Roll Express, Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson, "Nature Boy" Buddy Landel, Austin Idol, and even PG-13, Jamie Dundee(J.C. Ice) and Wolfie D, all called him and wants to be a part of one of those classic wrestling shows. Also, a big announcement coming up, next week, about prices. They are thinking about throwing back the prices for the next event. "The King" will also have some footage of Mick Foley talking about Tommy Rich's recent Minglewood Hall performance. Lawler ended by reminding everyone that Saturday, May 30th, will be the next Classic Wrestling event at Minglewood Hall.

Corey said there will be a special segment coming up, next week. Corey reminded everyone about the FREE Live Wrestling that's taking place on Saturday, May 23rd, as part of the Block Party event at the Super K-Mart, located at Coleman Rd/Austin Peay Hwy in Raliegh with a 1pm bell time.

Corey Maclin wrapped up the program, by saying, there's a major announcement that's coming up, next week, that you don't wanna miss.
