Just watched the Lawler/Dr. Linder vs. Dundee/Dr. McCarver match from 2011. I love this match so much. Straight schtick but its masterful how they work with the lawler's and the ladies taping were having the time of their lives. If its possible to yank from youtube, I would like to see that match on the set.

Jerry Lawler v. Goldust WWF 5/26/97-EPIC

We start with Lawler spitting hot fire in a backstage promo. He calls Goldust a flaming fag, Marlena the biggest Goldigger in GA and says they should have named their daughter Target because everyone in Atlanta took a shot. Goldust jumps him at the bell and they go toe to to at a breakneck pace. The rights and lefts are as good as you would hope a Dustin v. Lawler punch exchange would be. The show was in Evansville IN, so Lawler get a huge crowd reaction even as a heel, including a Lawler chant as he was choking Dustin. Lawler gets bumped to the floor and bitch slapped by Marlena but he steals a quick pin with his feet on the ropes. Post match was great too, with them brawling to the stage and Lawler taking a huge rolling bump all the way down the ramp. Total bell to bell brawl in which every moment was great. Really makes me want to seek out more Goldust matches here, as this was brawling at the level of his best stuff with Buck and Funk.


I enjoyed the hell out of this. Just both guys punching the shit out of each other. Lawler attempts a piledriver but Goldust actually lands a nasty one. After that spot, more punching, more nasty shots. This felt like the start of a really great feud. I wish they had a non-comedy 15 minute PPV match where they just beat the shit out of each other.

Yea with all the hype lately this is going to be a must buy for me. I think i'm holding off on anything else right now because i want to dive into that as soon as i get it. If it's going to be a while still i might get another one to hold me over.

It would have to be more discs than the Funk set, eh?

Mainly because there is more Lawler footage available and Funk took large chunks of time off.

You can safely buy another set. MX will be out before this one. Look for this in late spring, early summer.

OK, I am only going to rate matches I have seen and can clearly remember. I still need to watch some stuff from the AWA set and the yearbooks. When I make the final set, I may go mad and review the entire thing just because I can watch 100 hours of Lawler and never go wrong.

How many angles/interviews do you expect the Lawler set to have? Obviously you can't include buildup for every match, but for some of the bigger one like the LLT matches with Dundee, it seems like there needs to be at least SOME buildup included.

I will try to fit all of the interviews and angles I can find. The set may be equal part matches / interviews and angles.

If we all keep asking Will about the Lawler set, he's never going to have time to finish the Lawler set.

Don't know about anyone else but that makes it even more of a must buy for me.

I think that Loss made the point on the Podcast that a guy like Flair made you care about Flair. Lawler made you care about the feud, his opponent and what he was going to do to his opponent. You wanted to see the payoff and usually there was a payoff to a feud. In some rare cases, there may not be a payoff in the traditional sense but the end of one feud occurred when Lawler started another feud.
