Memphis Wrestling TV report

by Brian Tramel

Wrestling TV Report 3.31.07

----Corey Maclin is joined again this week with Lance Russell. Maclin says they will announce the date of the Hulk Hogan vs Jerry Lawler show.

----“Too Cool 2” [Flex/Tim Grind] interview about defending the titles vs Charlie Haas/Shelton Benjamin. Flex/Grind beat Chris O’Neal/Flash Flanagan. Heat on O’Neal with hot tag to Flash. Not as good as last week, but a good bout. Grind hit with a chain O’Neal for the win.

----Haas/Shelton video aired of them talking about going against Flex/Grind.

----“Clash of Legends” Jerry Lawler vs Hulk Hogan promoted with Jerry Lawler interview sitting down behind the announcer’s desk. This was filmed either before the show last week or during this week. Lawler tells a good story and did a real good job going over the upcoming match. Video is shown of Hogan challenging Lawler from “Sam’s Town” back a few months ago. A total build up for the show. The date of April 27, 2007 was announced for Mid-South Coliseum of Lawler vs Hogan.

----Derrick King interview with the Fantasio mask. King states he has seen this mask everywhere he goes. The mask then shoots fire and King is shocked.

---- Johnny Dotson/Tatt2 by DQ over “Insane Clowns” [Bobo/Giggles] with Rashard. Rashard used the clown bucket to get the DQ. Heat on Tatt2 with hot tag to Dotson. It looked like the bout was actually cut in post production.

----“Hollywood” Jimmy Blaylock with “Hollywood Clique” interview with Chuckie, Fire and Flame. Kimala video is show along with a Boogeyman video. Blaylock was funny here.

----Another interview with Jazz and Corey Maclin. Jazz/Rodney Mack will be facing “The Moondogs” [Fifi/Cujo]. Maclin was horrible here.

----“Moondogs” [Fifi/Cujo] with Grady Watson interview. Maclin and Watson call Jazz and Rodney Mack WWE superstars. How long have they been gone??

----The Grizz [NBA’s Memphis Grizzlies mascot] video then airs next. Koko Ware video interview talking about the Grizz vs Koko Ware bout on April 13, 2007. Not good.

----“New Nature Boy” Kevin White/Mr. Hughes interview. White continues to say that Bill Dundee is scared of him. White/Hughes/Fire/Flame beat K-Hill/”the Posse”/Shane Shaw. Hughes ends it with a slam in a squash.

RassleNotes: Corey Maclin is still calling O’Neal “part of the tag team Picture Perfect”…Announced as Derrick King vs Flash Flanagan on the “Sam’s Town” show, so it looks like they will stretch out the King/Fantasio angle…Maclin pushed the WWE’s Hall of Fame being on USA Network right after the show…Nothing good on the show, but the announcement of Lawler vs Hogan. It is hard sell for them to promote the show on the 13th and then again for a show on the 27th.
