We cover a lot this week, as Randy does a tribute to Jerry Lawler and then continues his historical deep dive by going into 1988 Memphis wrestling. Hear about Jerry Lawler's entire career from the perspective of someone who worked with him and has been friends with him for decades. There a lot of interesting stories told. Then, we continue into another big year in Memphis history - 1988. This included the end of a 14-year storyline with Jerry Lawler finally winning the AWA Title from Curt Hennig. Also, Randy gets hit with fire by Eddie Gilbert, which Randy says is still the wrestling incident mentioned to him the most. Additionally, appearances in the territory from Shawn Michaels, Mick Foley, Scott Steiner, Yokozuna, and so many more!
