[1991-12-07-USWA-Memphis TV] Eric Embry and Tom Prichard

Recommended Posts

This is scheduled to be Tom Pritchard vs Tony Falk in a non-title match, but Embry attacks Pritchard from behind before the match begins. Wrestlers should know by now to watch for Embry in the studio, considering the havoc he has wreaked this year. He ends with a DDT on the concrete floor, which is sold like death. The reason he's so upset? Pritchard commented on his girlfriend, and Embry insists that he stay out of his personal life. This after flaunting his personal life on television. Again, I love how in touch Memphis wrestling is with genuine things people hate about people, because this is a complaint people make about celebrities all the time.

I thought that was Eddie Gilbert attacking Pritchard. Haven’t got used to this new look of Eric’s. Embry didn’t like Tom talking about his personal life. Only he can talk about it like he did on an earlier segment.

Ha--from the back the new-look Embry looks EXACTLY like Luscious Johnny V. Was Falk seriously going to wrestle in that chauffeur's outfit? Embry drops Prichard with a DDT in front of the announcer's desk and screams about Prichard messing with his personal life.

I may take back what I said two posts ago because the way they inter-weaved the Pritchard feud with Embry's new love interest was done well here. I always love when they emphasize a big move done in the studio to put over an attack.

The best part is, Dr. Tom didn't insult CJ at all; he merely said that she could give Eric all the new looks she wanted, but that didn't change the fact that Dr. Tom was still the Southern champion. An attack like this over something so innocent proves that, new look or not, Embry's still a dangerous psychopath who will do anything he can to injure those who displease him. Too bad we won't be seeing a whole lot more of this feud, as Dr. Tom will soon be opening a practice on the other side of Tennessee for SMW.

 

Interesting that Dr. Tom being rammed into the bell was sold by Dave and Corey as being every bit as dangerous as the DDT on the floor, if not more so. Then again, the bell in the Memphis studio sounds a lot heavier than those used by the WWF and WCW, so it probably would be more dangerous as a weapon if it were used in a real fight.
