What's up? Jerry Lawler, You know how times flies with that week going fast. I have been doing a lot of thinking and I have been worrying a lot about this cake. I hope ,Cory, that your face does not wind up in the cake. I guess most people are familiar with what happened last week. Jimmy Hart made me an offer like the Godfather made that I cannot refuse. What I am gonna do today and this is a bit unorthodox is this nobody would buy a car without a test-drive. I am gonna be partners with Shock and Jimmy Hart is gonna manage us in a tag team match today. Jimmy Hart and Shock comes out. Jerry you gotta admit that you were in a bit of trouble against the youngster last week.Jerry , I saw the tape you felt you were helping me. I felt that I did not need your help at the time.

You put Memphis Wrestling on the map because of Jimmy Hart. Remember there are two sides to every coin. I will tell you what I can do for you and people say when Jimmy Hart's lips are moving that he is lying.I an not. I will prove to you that I have changed my ways and you and me, Baby and the first family can head back to the top. Koko Ware is in Hollywood California at the moment and this is what I can do for you. He is making a new movie this week and is starring with Gary Coleman.

The King and Jimmy Hart together again, Baby!!!!! The fans boo Hart. Jerry Lawler, We are gonna do a test drive today.
They show a Brian Christopher video. I have a feeling that there will a lot more of Brian Christopher on Memphis TV in the months to come.
The XWF Cruiserweight Champion with Jimmy Hart comes out. Jimmy Hart, Brian Christopher talk is cheap. You can say all that you want. Kid Kash, Brian Christopher. Only thing that I know about you is that big head of yours is nothing but full of hot air. I don't think that I have ever been on a show with a cake that somebody's face has not went in it. If you don't keep the microphone up, Cory, It will be your face in the cake.

They show a taped interview with the Southern Heavyweight champion Mable. You cannot have an anniversary show without the King of the Ring champion, Mable. This is a celebration of the backbone of professional wrestling. This is a celebration of the fans. Without the fans wrestling would be nothing. Give yourselves a nice round of applause. I hear that Koko B ware has been talking trash about King Mable and wanted the take the Southern Heavyweight Championship. That ain't gonna happen Koko. David vs. Goliath was then but this is today and it will be different. I will cut you
and fry you up like a chicken.
They have a video of Koko Ware. mmmm mmmmm mmmmm I feel goo today. Where is the dancing boy from Lexington Tennessee? Kevin White? He is no longer in the wrestling business.

Hart is found and Jerry Lawler is the winner by dq and Bockwinkle remains the AWA champion.
Jerry Lawler comes out with Jimmy Hart and Shock. Jerry asks Jimmy about the match that they just showed. What about that match. You cost me the title via dq there. Jimmy Hart, If you listed to me you would been the AWA world champion that night. if you looked at that tape 10,000 people were there to see Jerry Lawler. How many people came to see Jerry Lawler at the Coliseum 3 weeks ago? These people don't care about you. They never cared about you. These are fair-weather friends when the chips are down, Jimmy Hart and Shock will be there. I promise you that King. We could rule the world. Look at the champions in the WWE. They are little munchkins. You are a superstar. Jerry Lawler, It is a dilemma. It is true. It was nice to look at that tape with Bockwinkle. 11,000 fans used to jam the Midsouth Coliseum. Three weeks ago it was 11,500 people dressed up with empty seats. What is up with that? Maybe the people don't support you when the chips are down. The fans voice their disapproval. Hart, I will prove it. How many of you people voted for Lawler when he was mayor? he could of been the greatest mayor ever in this city's history. If Jimmy Hart was in your corner, You would of been mayor. If Lawler was Mayor your taxes would of not been raised.
