Embry is out for an interview, but he's preceded by Leatherface going crazy with a chainsaw. Embry's entourage is now Leatherface, Ta-Gar and Judge Dredd. Gotta love it. Embry says "Lawler's a lot more stupider than I thought he was." He jokes that no one around the country wanted to be his partner when they found out they would have to face Eric Embry.

Since you've watched all the yearbooks, where would you (and anyone else that's seen him) rank Embry on the mic all time? I've been blown away by what I've seen thus far. Maybe he doesn't have the range some others do, but I don't recall hearing much about him as a classic promo and that's my impression thus far.

I'm more impressed by him in the ring to be honest, although I do think he's a good talker.

Dave and Michael are running over the rest of the show when they hear an ominous noice--LEATHERFACE is in the studio, running around waving a chainsaw. Like I said earlier, there's a Texas Boys connection there. The relation of Ta-Gar is somewhat murkier--are there volcanoes in Texas?

 

What makes Embry so great on the mic is that he's probably as good or better as a babyface, which is saying something considering what a spectacular scuzzball of a heel he is. There's absolutely nowhere else in the world where he could have gotten over besides Memphis and Texas (and he had the book in both places!) but God bless him for it.

More good stuff on the mic from Embry. I'm not sure who Lawler's partner is for the tag match they seem to be promoting, but it looks like one of the Memphis guys that Embry's had a run-in with before, as he threatens to put whoever it is out of action all over again.

 

It seems that Prichard and Miss Texas have officially split from the Embry/Tojo entourage, as they aren't even mentioned here, let alone present. I think Dr. Tom would be taken a lot more seriously as a threat to Lawler than a couple of comic book characters, but I'm not a frustrated cartoonist who has a job as a wrestling booker like Lawler does, so who am I to judge?
