  1. Loved that we got Jim Ross, Jeff Jarrett, and Verne Gagne impressions in this one.

    I had read that the (alleged) $300,000.00 Jarrett wanted was money he was owed for back PPV’s and merch. Instead of waiting months and months for that all to come in, Jarrett just wanted it right away. Can’t say as I blame him.

    Enjoyed listening to this show, especially the part about your wrestling convention experiences and the “handlers” that are prevalent at these events.

    A few years ago I got to go to this convention in Atlanta to take photos for a website that covers wrestling. Jerry Lawler was there alongside Bill Dundee and they had a handler guy that was pretty insistent about nobody taking pictures unless they purchased something (an autograph, paid photo, etc.), even if it was for media coverage.

    Later that day Lawler, who is one of my favorites from when I was a kid, came over to a table that had replica championship belts made by Dave Millican (who makes the real WWE belts), which I happened to be standing beside. Lawler picked up a replica of the Southern title he used in Memphis for many years to look at the details. I asked him if I could get a quick shot of him holding the belt and he looked over his shoulder at the handler and said something to the effect of — better be quick, before that guy over there catches me! and smiled while holding the belt.

    I got a got a better picture than I was expecting and Lawler could’ve easily been a jerk and told me I
    I’d have to buy something. I was reminded of all this listening to your experience trying to get a bumper for the show.

    When you mention the no horseplay sign at hotel I pictured Flair , Anderson and Blanchard walking up to the door seeing the sign .
    Anderson turns to flair and said ” Sorry Flair but I guess we are not welcome here .”

    Sorry guys, I realized that comment was a little hard to read so I added a little to make more sense of my ramblings:

    I enjoyed listening to this show, especially the part about your wrestling convention experiences and the “handlers” that are prevalent at these events.

    A few years ago I got to go to a “legends” convention in Atlanta to take photos for a website that covers wrestling. Jerry Lawler was there along with Bill Dundee and they had a handler guy that was pretty insistent about nobody taking pictures unless they purchased something (an autograph, paid photo op, etc.), even if it was for media coverage.

    Later that day Lawler, who is one of my favorite wrestlers from when I was a kid, came over to a table that had replica championship belts made by Dave Millican sitting on it. In case you don’t know, he is the same guy who makes many of the real WWE belts including the current world title.

    I happened to be standing beside that table when Lawler came over. He picked up a replica of the Southern title he used in Memphis for many years to look at. I saw my opportunity and asked Lawler if I could get a quick shot of him holding the belt. He looked over his shoulder at the handler and said something to the effect of You better be quick, before that guy over there catches me!

    The way he said it was with the typical droll sarcasm we’ve come to expect from The King. He smiled while holding the belt and I got a got a much better picture than I was expecting. Lawler could’ve easily been rude and told me I’d have to buy something or just to screw off, but he didn’t. I was reminded of all this listening to your experience trying to get a bumper for the show from Bill Apter.

    Keep up the good work. Your show is always a fun listen!
