Memphis Wrestling TV Ratings 6.27.09

----Overall the show was above the yearly average, but after the first two quarters, it lost viewers. It lost a full point and over 16,000 viewers for the Lawler vs Dundee match. This should have been a sign that no one cares about those two in the ring against each other after all these years. No one can say anything about their effort though, because they tried their best to sell that match – for over 4 TV shows. The best quarter featured the great PG-13 video piece and worst quarter actually featured the best thing [Blaylock/Watts] on the show.

----Wolfe calls Lawler a mark in the video. Those guys were so over. I think their feud with Tommy Rich/Doug Gilbert was the last time Memphis made money week after week. Was that Bill Rush – RRO Ref of the Year 2006/2007 working against PG in one of those bouts?? I do know he was the ref in the R&R vs PG bout…They were stating it was 200 wins each for Lawler/Dundee…As I have said, the best thing on the show was Watts/Blaylock. That was funny.
