[1993-05-29-USWA-TV] Jennifer on the Road: Jerry Lawler

Recommended Posts

Lawler is flirting with Jennifer big time. She keeps saying "That's great" after everything, to a point where Lawler starts calling her on it. Okay, time to be cynical -- what's the story here? Who was she dating?

 

Lawler is quite the charmer:

 

"Everyone thinks I have money to burn" and he pulls his wallet out on fire.

I don't know, but there's no way she left the business without crying.

what is the significance of adding "Miss" in front of every female personality in Memphis and in Southern wrestling in general?

 

was that a wrestling thing or just a southern custom?

Can this be reviewed on the complete and accurate Jerry Lawler at Segunda Caida?

 

The King showcasing all of his abilities and Jenn no-sells his offense and is not impressed. Leading to the big Lawler abstract comeback and a fireball.

 

This was awesome.

Jennifer lets us in on Lawler's massive Coca-Cola memorabilia collection. Was this aspect ever touched on when Lawler was feuding with CM Punk? It should have been. Jennifer's phoniness notwithstanding, Lawler's artwork is legitimately impressive.

Lawler collects Coke memorabilia, and looks like he's wearing scrubs here. He shows her some drawings of himself. Smooth. She seems too old for him even though that seems to be the only point of the segment.

AJ said on another thread that he was almost certain that this was Jennifer Jarrett, Jeff's little sister. I guess I called it, because I said that she was either a Jarrett or a Lawler to be able to get a job like this as her first (at least that we know of) in the business.

 

I donlt think either Jerry or Jennifer knew quite what to do here; she's most likely seen all his artwork, but they have to pretend she hasn't for the camera, which probably led to some of her less than enthusiastic reactions. It's tough to fake genuine emorion of any kind unless you're a professional actress, and Jennifer clearly isn't one.

 

Lawler's artwork is definitely of professional quality, but I notice that he sidestepped the question about whether he's ever actually sold anything. I'm willing to bet he has, and I'm not sure why he's reluctant to talk about it. It can't hurt his image, because everyone already knows he's an artist of some talent. Maybe he's just shy when it comes to what happens outside the ring.

 

I expected more than one wrestling-related picture, and I'm not sure what it says that the one he chose to show was of Jimmy Valiant.

 

One line is the best you can do drawing? Come on, Jennifer. I can do better than that with cerebral palsy and severely diminished motor skills.

 

I have a hard time believing that so many of the King's classmates were dead at this time, considering that he'd only graduated twenty-six years before. If it's true, I guess they just don't make 'em too healthy down Memphis way.

 

The wallet on fire was probably the highlight of the segment, and I liked that they didn't telegraph it with a corny joke beforehand.

 

There's a place for a segment like this on USWA TV, but it definitely needs a better host. Maybe the King himself could do it, as long as they don't choose to profile too many heels.
