    For me chaos reigned at one specific match back in the day….can’t remember but it was Lawler Savage era and basically the match went out of the ring and into a concession stand where glass bottles of mustard and catch were cracked over each other’s heads….

    See the old clips you link to reminds me of the rug burns I get from my older brother pinning me during commercial breaks…the sleeper hold wasn’t something that should have been shown to kids like me at the time.

    Just curious if you know the match I’m talking about.

    Hey, Dax, great to hear from you. How’s life in Memphis? Yeah, believe it or not, I usually wore a “Nature Boy” Ric Flair T-shirt underneath my goalie shirt. Hope this finds you well. I can honestly say that I believe I’m the only BHS soccer alum who went on to have a brief career in professional wrestling–my parents are bursting with pride. As is Coach Kiser, I’m sure.

    Regarding the record breaking Sept. 30, 1085 card headlined by Flair and Lawler. Results also have Flair working in Charlotte that day some 400 miles away and it was a Monday do I doubt it was a matinee.

    The Memphis card obviously happened, but I am curious if you have any details on any of these guys working earlier that day in Charlotte.

    No idea. But that could explain Flair’s lackluster performance.

    Didn’t know if you’d seen this yet, but it’s a fascinating read…

    Love your site- really takes me back.
    In light of the lack of an archives
    Could you explain about the video distibution system back in the old mid south territory?
    Obviously, every saturday morn on TV5 there would be a 90 minute live show. This was taped and sent to the other areas? nashville, evansville, northern mississippi etc? Did an edited version of the saturday morning show go out?
    I grew up in Memphis but my grandparents lived in mississippi and I used to see a show there that would be an hour of strictly tape of the previous monday nights action at mid south coliseum with lance announcing ringside- I always enjoyed that show most. Was this used in other areas as well?
    Tv5′s show would often cut to tape of mid south action but often had a lot of studio crush job canvas-back action. (another good story idea- where did they get some of those guys?)
    I find it hard to fathom that with all these videos being made and sent out all over that someone was not making or keeping copies- especially the coliseum stuff… and surely they had some sort of professional video duplication equipment having to make so many copies so frequently…
    any insight?

    Scott, back in the seventies there was an older wrestler named Buddy Hack. Very talented. I can’t remember if he was with Gulas or maybe the Poffos. I saw a bit that looked so real I almost think it was, Pepe Lopez was smokin a big cigar,he and Buddy wrer arguing durind an interview. Buddy hit him in face driving cigar down his throat and burnt Pepe’s mouth and Buddy’s hand.

    Scott, I meant to ask if you could tell me anything about Buddy Hack. Also, were the wrestlers that were not really big stars but were on tv treated like stars around town?

    Sorry for not getting back to you guys (y’all) sooner. I’m well. And I’m back. With a vengeance. Seriously, though, professional gigs (y’know, paying) had to come first for a while. Plus, I was burned out. Cleaning up the site right now (deleting dead links and references to YouTube footage that has since been deleted by the McMahon machine. Thanks for your concern. Good to be back.
