Opening the Vaults of Memphis Classic Wrestling with footage of "The Fabulous Ones" (Steve Keirn & Stan Lane) going against The Moondogs (Rex & Spot) with "The Mouth of the South" Jimmy Hart in their corner. The finish of this one came when Jimmy Hart attempted to hit Steve Keirn in the face with some powder, but Keirn ducked and Hart hit The Moondog with the powder. Then, Keirn leveled the blinded Moondog with a piledriver and made the cover, but the other Moondog tried to strike him with his bone, but Keirn moved, again, resulting in the Moondog hitting his partner. While Keirn went after The Moondog, Lane jumped in and pinned the hurt Moondog to get the win for The Fabs.

Opening the Vault with a Classic Barbwire Match between Jerry "The King" Lawler and "Dirty" Dutch Mantel. This was one epic, bloody war. "The King" ended up getting his hand raised in victory. The finish came when Lawler and Mantel collided together. Lawler fell into the ropes, with Mantel falling down on the mat. Lawler catapulted off the ropes, falling on top of the fatigued Mantel to get the three count. Lawler regained the Southern Heavyweight title.

Opening the Vault-Six-Man Tag featuring the team of Tojo Yamamoto, Mr. Onita, and Masa Fuchi taking on Roy Rogers and The Gibsons, Rick and Robert. These two teams fought until the time expired. This ended with both teams brawling in the ring with Yamamoto, Onita, and Fuchi retreating to the outside where Onita and Fuchi were quick to snatch up their Southern Tag belts.

Corey said that Memphis Sport magazine had Memphis Wrestling teaming up with the Memphis Redbirds on the baseball field ranked as one of the top sporting events in the city. Corey added that there is a lot of big names and he can't believe the way the card is stacking up. There will be some major stars that we will be hearing from in the weeks to come.

More Opening the Vaults of Memphis Classic Wrestling with some footage from the Randy Savage/Austin Idol feud. This clip was from their match at the Mid-South Coliseum. Angelo Poffo threw a chain to Savage. Savage blasted Idol with the chain and got the pin. Following the match, Idol tied Savage up in the ropes (Andre style) and put Angelo Poffo in the Las Vegas leglock. This was followed by video of when Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart viciously attacked Austin Idol in the studio.
