Jerry Lawler's Classic Memphis Wrestling Report-February 10, 2018

Jerry Lawler welcomed everyone to the fourth edition of the show and introduced his musical co-host, Tom Nunnery.  Then Lawler welcomed this week's guest, Memphis Wrestling announcer and Power Pro Wrestling promoter, Randy Hales.  Randy discussed his background and they showed a clip of his first appearance on television interviewing the late, great Voice of Memphis Wrestling, Lance Russell.

They revisited a classic match from the Mid-South Coliseum featuring The Rock N' Roll Express, Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson taking on "Macho Man" Randy Savage and his brother "Leaping" Lanny Poffo with their father, Angelo Poffo in their corner.

Next was a video of Scott Bowden talking with Dave Brown, making fun of Randy Hales.  Things would later get physical between Bowden and Hales. 

They skip forward a few weeks later to a match at the Mid-South Coliseum between Randy Hales and Scott Bowden.  "Wildfire" Tommy Rich attacked Randy Hales.  Scott Bowden whipped Randy's back with a belt while Rich held him down.  Jerry Lawler hit the ring to save Hales.

Jerry Lawler and Randy Hales discuss another one of Hales' memorable feuds with his rival, Brandon Baxter.  Lawler mentioned that Brandon Baxter is on the radio now in Jonesboro, Arkansas.  They show a televised Power Pro match between Hales and Baxter.  During the match, Former WWE and ECW wrestler, "Vicious" Vic Grimes showed up, attacking Brandon Baxter.  Baxter was sent crashing through a table with Grimes and Hales continuing the onslaught in the back of the studio.

Lawler and Hales touched on how Power Pro Wrestling in Memphis was once the developmental territory for the WWE where many of the WWE wrestlers would get their start including current WWE RAW General Manager, Olympic Gold Medalist and WWE Hall of Famer, Kurt Angle.  They look back at Kurt Angle's very first pro wrestling interview and match from Power Pro Wrestling.

They looked back at a classic Power Pro Wrestling ending during Christmas time which included Jerry Lawler and Tom Nunnery being joined in the ring by all the Power Pro wrestlers to sing, "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer."  These wrestlers included Lance Cade, The Mean Street Posse, Derrick King, "The Kat" Stacy Carter, Tracy Smothers, Spanky aka The Brian Kendrick, The Spellbinder, Brandon Baxter, Blade Boudreaux, Chris Rocker, Steve Bradley and a masked wrestler known as "American Dragon" that's now SmackDown Live General Manager, Daniel Bryan.  At the end, Tom Nunnery was blasted with his guitar.

Jerry Lawler announced that Randy Hales is now the General Manager at King Jerry Lawler's Hall of Fame Bar & Grille on Beale Street.

They ended the show by showing highlights from the special Power Pro Rumble on the River event which was held outside at Tom Lee Park during Fourth of July weekend.  Randy Hales crowned former WWE wrestler Giant Silva from The Oddities "The New Giant King."  Silva was first placed in a three-on-one handicap match against Beau James, Swole and Bobby Bronze. 

Lawler and "The Kat" Stacy Carter later arrived at Tom Lee Park fighting off Tony Faulk and Bulldog Raines outside the ring, before nailing Randy Hales inside the ring.  The New Giant King grabbed Lawler.  The Kat would hit the ring, trying to help, but Randy Hales stopped her by tossing her to the mat.  Lawler and The Kat would fight back and ended up clearing the ring of Hales and his New Giant King. 

Throughout the episode, they aired commercials from Jerry Lawler's Classic Memphis Wrestling Sponsors:

Jerry "The King" Lawler Battles Brooks With Malik & Impact Wrestling's DJ Z In His Corner At VCA's VELOCITY CLASH II Friday, March 2nd Memphis, TN


                                   UCPWS : Foul Play

   What an exciting day to be a wrestling fan. I look forward to these Sunday trips to UCPWS in Hollysprings, Mississippi with Mr. Kevin and The Midnight Rider. Such an awesome pool of young and upcoming talent in the Mid-South Indy Wrestling Circuit.  From the first match to the Main Event , the fans were on the edge of their seat s and hollering. 

Match 1:  Blake Christian vs Sam Adams 


Blake Christian ran Sam through the gauntlet . An onslaught of suplex variants , drop kicks, and leg attacks had Sam Adams on the verge of being pinned about 15 times. Somehow Sam gets out of a power slam and sunset flips Blake for the 1,2,3. I thought the ref counted really fast. Winner : Sam Armstrong

Match 2: The Shadow vs The Midnight Rooster

The Shadow control this match from the start. Midnight Rooster was able to come back , even suplexing the huge Shadow at one point. Rooster finishes Shadow with a tilt-a-whirl slam for the win. The lights go out and a Crazy Jack starts laughing. When they turn back on Crazy Jack attacks Midnight Rooster , then disappears again.

Match 3: Brandon White vs Jaxson Hawke

Match 4: Brandon White vs Jaxson Hawke

This was a battle of 2 big, strong , country boys. Brandon White whooped ass early but the young Jaxson mounted a big comeback. It went back and forth after that spilling onto the floor. The match ended in a double count out. The 2 combatants kept fighting afterwards though and hollering at each  other. The dressing room cleared out as everyone tried to break up  these two former tag team partners

Match 4:  Criss Gage vs “The Dirty White Boy” Dustin Anthony 

There was some controversy over who really was the number one contender set to face Champion Kevin Bless. Tommy Jax cleared that up quickly and announced that whoever wins this match would be the undisputed number one contender. It was a high flying affair from the jump. Criss Gage gave it his all and electrified the crowd with his arial assault . Dirty’s Experience helped him outlast and eventually pin the youngster. Keep an eye on these 2  . Winner : Dirty White Boy

Match 4: Andy Mack vs Prince Adonis (Staples)

Mack is a true champion and one of the hottest stars on the circuit. Adonis gave him as much hell as he could handle , showing the crowd he was worthy for the challenge. It was Adonis’s own cheating manager that tried to “Attack Mack” and hit his own guy that cost the Prince his match. Winner: Andy Mack.

Main Event:  Ken Dang and Shane Shoffner vs Hollyhood and Chris Ward
This is a continuation of a family-feud that started last week when Shane turned on his brother Chris and left Chris’s facial impression in a cooking pan (which he brought back out with him to the ring.) 
This was a brawl and nothing was left on the table. Dang and Shane gave it everything they could but the will to win and experience of Hollyhood and Chris Ward prevailed. ( thanks in large part to a European uppercut from Ward and s flying shoulder tackle from Hollyhood.) 

In conclusion I would like to say that UCPWS is always such a fun experience . I recommend it to wrestling fans of all ages and walks of life if you want to be entertained and see some new , cutting edge talent.  Thanks to Kevin Conlee for picking me and The Midnight Rider up .
