[1992-06-20-USWA-TV] Eddie Gilbert Profile

Recommended Posts

Awesome highlights of Gilbert's prior feuds with Lawler including barbed wire, fire and loser leave town stips mixed in with promos. Really great video, even if some of the clips look dated.

It's strange that they're in essence paying tribute to one of the top heels in Memphis wrestling history after Lawler has (presumably) run him out of town. This would have been more effective the previous week as a means to hype what could have been Eddie's final match. That said, the footage was a treat to see, especially for the appearances of people like Lance Russell and Jimmy Hart, who symbolize Memphis wrestling each in their own way as much as Lawler does. It was nice to see Missy too, in what I consider her best run ever.

 

Where did Eddie go next? I see by the match listings that he's back in the USWA by the end of the year fighting the Moondogs, of all people. It's too early for ECW, and we know he didn't show up in Smoky Mountain or either of the Big Two. I'm guessing he went to the indies for a while, since the GWF was probably still mad at him for taking their belt to Memphis without permission.
