Loss

[1992-06-13-USWA-TV] Interview: Jerry Lawler

Recommended Posts

Lawler does another great promo, this time saying he's put together a montage of the best moments of Gilbert's career. It's a single clip of Lawler pinning him at Mid South Coliseum to win the Global title.

Lawler was the camera to back up to show off both his titles. Crowd starts chanting "we want Eddie". Lawler talks about Gilbert's career and hypes up a video montage of Eddie's long career. Then shows a clip of Lawler beating Eddie. That was mean spirited but funny.

Lawler basically heels it up here, showing that Gilbert's career highlight package consists of losing the title to Lawler. On a small package no less. But it clearly gets over here.

I know he's the babyface, but Lawler is really being a dick to Eddie the last few weeks. First the whole Missy Hyatt deal, and now claiming the loss last week was the highlight of Eddie's career.

Lawler's clearly had enough of Eddie and it shows here. There's not even a pretense of respecting him or anyone associated with him or the GWF. It's gotten so bad that a portion of the studio audience has actually started cheering for Eddie, which may not have been the intended effect, but Lawler clearly doesn't care about that either. At least we get to see the finish of the match from the previous Monday night at the MSC, which is a lot cleaner than I would have guessed it would be. My guess is that Eddie's latest run in Memphis is just about over.

 

At least Lawler isn't forced to pay lip service to the idea of going to the GWF to defend the title; he flat-out states that anyone from the GWF interested in taking the title has to come to Memphis to do it. Of course, that's a cover for the fact that the GWF had nothing to do with the title change and refused to recognize it.

This is a really dickish promo even by Lawler standards.  I did like the bit about anyone from GWF having to come to Memphis for a match, from a purely hometown hero standpoint.

Oh, what happened to the Moondogs?
