Mixed Tag Match from Friday Night SmackDown featuring The Boogeyman and Little Boogeyman in action against Finlay and Hornswoggle, who was simply known back then as "Little Bastard". JBL and Michael Cole called the action. Hornswoggle hid under the ring for most of the match, but came out when Little Boogeyman gave Finlay a low blow. Little Boogeyman spit worms in Hornswoggle's face and the two went at it. This was followed by several of The Boogeyman's videos that aired while they were hyping his debut in the WWE.

They showed the opening moments of the Jerry Lawler/Bill Dundee match from the Raleigh-Frayser Block Party for Peace, then went to the classic footage from the Mid-South Coliseum, in which, Lawler and Dundee were the last two remaining representatives for their two teams in an elimination match. Phil Hickerson tripped Dundee while he was running into the ropes. Lawler off the top with the fist drop, but Dundee kicked out and started to make a comeback. Lawler would hit Dundee with a chain, but "The Fabulous One" Jackie Fargo would jump in to get some of Lawler. Hickerson and Dennis Condrey would come out to help Lawler. Tojo Yamamoto would come out to even the odds for team Dundee and take it to Condrey. Fargo was rocking Lawler with some vicious right hands, splitting "The King's" head with the ring he was wearing.

Corey announced that the big return bout has been signed for the 4th of July at Minglewood Hall. This one is going to be the final straw between "Superstar" Bill Dundee and Jerry "The King" Lawler.

Next, we heard from Jerry "The King" Lawler that had this to say: "Well, it looks like this July 4th is truly going to be the most explosive July 4th that I can ever remember! And when I say ever remember, I'm talking about from the time that I was a little kid, until right now because this is going to be the final conflict between Bill "Superstar" Dundee and Jerry "The King" Lawler. That's right! You've seen it before, but you'll never see it again! Now, somebody did some research. Some wrestling historian checked back and found out that Bill and I have wrestled each other, against each other, four hundred times, throughout our careers. And he claims to have won two hundred. I know I've won at least two hundred so, supposedly, this final conflict is gonna be to tip the scales, to see who was the better of the two, throughout their entire career. And all I can say is , it's going to be, right here, in Memphis, Tennessee. It's not gonna be in Australia, Bill "Superstar" Dundee! It's gonna be in Memphis, Tennessee at Minglewood Hall, July 4th. Man, it's gonna be a blowout! I promise you that! And "The King" is gonna prove to you, Dundee, once and for all, that all of this time! All of these years! I was number one and you were like Avis, number two!"

Corey Maclin mentioned Lance Russell and Dave Brown. Corey thinks the world of those two and said if it wasn't for them, there wouldn't be a Corey Maclin. Corey said, "We're gonna get them back here, real soon, because we're working on something that's gonna be big, my friends. So get ready! We'll be telling you about it. I'm telling you, it's going to be huge! First time ever. I'm excited about it, been working on it, but I can't let the cat out of the bag, just yet until we get all our ducks in a row. So, once we dot all our is and cross all our ts, I promise you, you'll be the first to know, all of you fans out there watching."

Special music video of all the major stars of Memphis Wrestling to the tune of Bon Jovi's "Wanted Dead or Alive".

We hear from "The Mouth of the South" Jimmy Hart, who talked about the confrontation between "The Birdman" Koko B. Ware and local radio personality, Thaddeus Matthews, that took place at the Raleigh-Frayser Block Party for Peace. They showed video of this heated altercation. Jimmy told Corey that we need to work this whole ordeal out between Koko and Thaddeus.

Corey Maclin ended the show by reminding everyone of all the action that's taking place on the 4th of July.

On Saturday, July 4, Memphis Wrestling will be live at Lawler's Fireworks in West Memphis, Arkansas. Just across the old bridge with a 1PM bell time.

Later that night on the 4th of July, Memphis Wrestling returns to Minglewood Hall, located at 1555 Madison Avenue for a BIG night of wrestling action, featuring the final battle between Jerry "The King" Lawler and "Superstar" Bill Dundee!
