Kayfabe Code-Breakers: Super King vs. Batman

Neal Snow of All Star Championship Belts has outdone himself, opting this week to go with a Gold Key Comics mock-up of a potential feud between the Super King, Jerry Lawler and Batman, Adam West.

Adam West sticks up for his ol' pal "Supes Baby."

Ah, I remember the epic showdown between Super King (Jerry Lawler in full Superman attire) and Batman (the costumed Adam West from the camp 1960s TV show), which culminated with the TV actor threatening to inform his pal “Supes Baby” that Lawler was stealing his gimmick. (Perhaps Batman had been tipped off that the Riddler had been signed to appear in Memphis on the Sept. 27, 1977, card at the Mid-South Coliseum.) Lawler was fortunate Superman never made it town, though I’m sure the King of heels would not have been above pulling some Kryptonite out of his tights if the situation had called for it. From the clip below, it’s amusing see West wearing the mask…dressed in a track suit; he had been notified by DC’s attorneys to refrain from wearing the Bat-suit for his personal appearances. The TV standoff occurred to promote a local car show in Memphis, featuring appearances by West and the Batmobile from the ’60s TV series.

Promotional consideration paid for by the following:

File under Jerry Lawler, Batman.

    The 1966 Riddler Frank Gorshin, lived in Fairfield Connecticut back when I did for numerous years in the late 80’s early 90’s. We (my 2 housemates and I) who lived near the beach were having a party–volleyball in the back, kegs and grill on the side of the house (and we hoped) hot young girls everywhere. I was entrusted to go get the ice for the kegs, and as I was driving down Main Street in Fairfield at about 10:30 AM on a Saturday, and as I drove past the local hardware store, a visibly inebriated Frank Gorshin decided to walk across the street against traffic, and came about and inch or less close to meeting his maker at the hands of my trusty 1987 Honda Prelude. I was lucky that I caught him out of the corner of my eye and swerved, otherwise I would have done something Adam West had never done, putting the Riddler out of business. (I won’t even talk about the time I met Adam West, what a space cadet! Yeesh!)

    You know, I’m a little surprised that Superman never showed up. That appearance and The King winning with the help of kryptonite seems right along his booking ally.

    It would have been awesome though.

    May just draw up a comic to go with this goofiness.

    @Calcifer Yeah. Adam West went on Politically Incorrect about 10 times where he made intelligent conversation with senators & economic geniuses. While you are zipping about in your mom’s honda prelude, trying to pick up tweaks. Who’s the space cadet?
