 Any match between Jerry Lawler and Jackie Fargo are a must see. The brawling between Lawler and Fargo is jus ton another level. I know they are no complete matches if you watch this footage you one of the all time great passing the baton to his  successor .

Reading through this project caused me to go back and watch a lot of Jerry Lawler stuff. I'm not sure how I "missed" on him all of these years. He's a lot better than I ever gave him credit for.

Jerry Lawler was a major revelation for me going through the Memphis set. Growing up I was always a fan of wrestlers who did lots of 'moves', but Lawler completely captivated me with his more minimalist approach. On every match on the set he held my attention from beginning to end. His punches are without a doubt the best i've ever seen and as beautiful to watch as any flip or dive. He had such great timing and an incredible connection with the Memphis fans. I need to see more of the King!

Is the Lawler vs. Mantell 3/22/1982 match online? 3/27/1982 (LLT) and 3/29/1982 (Barbed Wire) are but I couldn't find the No DQ one.

I haven't seen it online in years. It used to be on Youtube, but the guy who uploaded it (his account is the one with the barbed wire match IIRC) took it down for some reason.

Any suggestions as to Jerry Lawler's all time best promos?   Maybe 6-8 of them.

2nd pleading request for some Jerry Lawler promos.  Doing a 2 episode podcast introducing pre puppies puppies Lawler to some new fans and I want them to hear what a great varied promo he was.

You definitely need to watch the snippets of Flair in the Memphis studio.  Great "aww shucks" con job by Lawler.  The other guy holds his end up too. :)

I'm not sure if it's on youtube or the likes, but this is one of the yearbook threads for a '93 promo that people loved. I thought it was maybe the best Lawler promo I'd seen and it's still the one I remember most when talking about Lawler on the mic.

Man, now I want to see this promo!!! Can someone who has the yearbook upload the promo to YouTube?

I didn't see it on youtube, but the one in May or June of 91 where Lawler comes back to get rid of Embry is one of the better fired up Lawler promos I've seen.  For a more heelish version of Lawler look for stuff dealing with Snowman.

Here's some Lawler promos I like:

Lawler doing a promo about company champions and how he's the real world champion. He did a lot of these after he won the AWA title but I thought this was one of the better ones

Lawler during the whole Cyber Punks vs Lawler feud was great. This is the lead up to the mask match and Lawler is great as a heel here.

I found a Lawler/Kaufman feud playlist on YT: https://www.youtube....cdjDifRX6KUVZb1

 

But Chapter 32: The Final Match has been taken down. What's the date of this match? Not sure if it's on Will's Lawler comp as it must be from around end of November 1983 and i can't see it. It's not the boxing match as that was earlier and the previous chapter on the playlist is from November 20th.

 

Edit; date could be November 21st. Is that on the Lawler comp? I see one listed on disc 16 as 11/14/83.

here's the last few from Will's comp:

 

Jerry Lawler vs. Andy Kaufman (11/14/83) - should be 11/21/83

Jerry Lawler vs. Buddy Landell (11/19/83) (Andy Kaufman on Commentary)

Jerry Lawler Interview (on Andy Kaufman's Death) (5/19/84)

Thanks. The playlist seems to be missing both Lawler/Kaufman matches as they have been taken down. So it must be them that's missing.
