Jerry Lawler's Classic Memphis Wrestling Debut Report-November 11, 2017


Saturday night's debut episode featured Jerry "The King" Lawler and special guest, Bill "Superstar" Dundee providing commentary on some of Memphis Wrestling's greatest battles.  Dundee wasn't thrilled that the set featured Lawler's AWA World Heavyweight Championship, Lawler's crown, Lawler's BBQ cups and even a Lawler statue.  Dundee told Lawler that he's showing off all of his things and all I've got is a lousy cup of coffee.  Lawler's longtime band member, Tom Nunnery was also in the studio and every time they mentioned him, he started singing, "World's Greatest Wrestler" which was pretty funny.

This week's episode featured three classic matches.  The first bout was the famous, original Tupelo Concession Stand Brawl with Jerry Lawler/Bill Dundee taking on The Blond Bombers Wayne Farris, who went on to become The Honky Tonk Man in the WWF and Larry Latham, who became Moondog Spot.  The late, great "Voice of Memphis Wrestling" Lance Russell called the original action with Lawler and Dundee noting how Lance was quick to get the cameras back rolling to capture the memorable fight.



The second match was Jerry Lawler vs Bill Dundee in a Loser Leaves Town Match.  They showed the entire match, but I found this cool montage to share.



The final match was another Lawler vs Dundee showdown with the special stipulation if Lawler lost, he had to leave town and if Dundee lost, he and his ex-wife, Beverly would both lose their hair.  Lawler pointed out how The Blade Runners were sitting beside Beverly at ringside to protect her.  They would go on to become Sting and The Ultimate Warrior.

Mid-South Wrestling Announcer and WNC Friend Suffers Stroke (UPDATE)

Pictured Left to Right: Shane Russell and Oscar Barlow

Wrestling News Center has been provided an update on the condition of Oscar Barlow.

"Update on Oscar: Oscar did have a mini-stroke. MRI did not show any abnormalities, the ultrasound on arteries to brain showed no major blockages, and the heart is pumping good. He does not remember much of anything from Tuesday through Thursday and still fuzzy about Friday and Saturday. Yesterday was a good day compared to the others. When the doctor did the pen test with eyes he still did not do well. He would start following and then just stop. The residual effects from he mini-stroke will just take time to overcome. His blood pressure is still running higher than it should so his blood pressure meds have been increased. We are to follow up with the doctor the Monday after Thanksgiving to see how his BP is doing at that time. He has been released to go back to work, but he cannot drive. He is not to drive until we go back for follow-up visit. Our family appreciates the prayers from all. Please continue to pray for Oscar's healing and that his BP issues can be resolved."

We are certainly glad to hear of his improvement and continue to pray for his speedy recovery.

Hello everyone, this page is for my dad, Floyd Blaylock. He was diagnosed with an auto immune disease that is attacking his muscles. He has to have 24/7 care and thankfully, he has found a specialist in Kentucky who has high hopes in treating him with stem cells. He is on Medicare ,and unfortunately , his insurance does NOT cover this procedure. His doctors are hopeful with the procedure that he will be able to lift his head up, be able to take care of himself, and he would once again be able to live a normal life! Please, I need your help in raising money so my dad can get his life back. Thank you in advance. If you’re not able to give , please pray for my dad. Without this procedure he will only get worse.

Mid-South Wrestling Announcer and WNC Friend Suffers Stroke

Pictured Left to Right: Shane Russell and Oscar Barlow

According to Heather Barlow, Oscar suffered what doctors to believe is a stroke. WNC received a message from Heather advising of his current medical status. 

"This is Heather...Well Oscar had echocardiogram done this morning. We never heard back from hospital about when scan was suppose to be done so a nurse was checking on it for us. The doctor came by and talked with us and asked if we had the scan taken care of and we said no we never heard from them and that's what she is checking in to for us. He flipped open his chart and said heart was enlarged but minimally and heart was pumping good. I told him of some instances yesterday that happened with Oscar's memory and he said he wanted to do ultrasound on arteries going to the brain. Then he said forget the scan he was going to send us to Oxford to get a MRI of brain with and without contrast. He said he was pretty positive he had a neurological event: mini stroke/stroke but didn't know how big or small and wanted to make sure there wasn't a brain aneurysm. His thinking has been a little off. So now we go tomorrow at 10 for MRI. We know something has happened now to see why and how bad. That's what I know now. Please stay in prayer."

We are told that his is memory is spotty and he is having difficulty with short term memory. We are asking all of our readers to keep Oscar in their prayers, as we send ours to his family for a speedy recovery.

Oscar is the Mayor of Crenshaw, MS and a lifelong wrestling fan. Oscar has been a part of the Mississippi Wrestling scene for decades as an announcer and behind the scenes partner.

Kurt Angle will return to action and replace Roman Reigns at WWE TLC; AJ Styles to battle “The Demon” Finn B├ílor; Changes made due to viral infection



WWE's "TLC" pay-per-view event scheduled for Sunday has undergone two massive changes with news that both Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt will be unable to compete due to an unspecified viral infection, and that Hall of Famer Kurt Angle will make his first in-ring appearance for WWE in more than 11 years.

In a statement to ESPN, a WWE representative said, "We have confirmed that three of our performers have been diagnosed with a viral infection. As a precautionary measure, we are ensuring in-ring performers and staff are tested and immunized in accordance with recommended medical guidelines."

Angle, currently appearing on-screen as the general manager of "Monday Night Raw," will take Reigns' spot in the "Tables, Ladders and Chairs" main event, teaming up with Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose to take on The Miz, Sheamus, Cesaro, Braun Strowman and Kane. It will be Angle's first televised match for WWE since Aug. 8, 2006, against Sabu on the then-recently relaunched ECW brand.

SmackDown superstar AJ Styles will make a one-night-only appearance on Raw to take on Finn Balor, taking the place of Wyatt in that one-on-one match. Despite each man assuming the role of leader of the popular "Bullet Club" faction before coming to WWE, this will be their first one-on-one match.
