What are the Implications of You Being Dead? | Memphis Wrestling TV (WMC Edition) 8/12/89 (Part 1)
We’re back with another pick from Brad on this episode, and we are goin’ to wrestling. Yes, he didn’t learn his lesson the first time. This time he drags Sean to the thriving metropolis of Memphis, Tennessee for an episode of CWA TV from August 12th, 1989. Is this episode taking place in a tiny TV studio? Yes. Did they shoot this at 10AM? Yes. Are the wrestlers visibly hungover? Of course.
This is an episode of the promotion’s B-show during a period of decline, so no one’s got their working boots on today, but that doesn’t mean that this is a bad show. Far from it. We have early appearances of Dustin Rhodes and the Undertaker, the much-discussed Dirty White Boy, and, of course, Ronnie P. Gossett.
We also get a ton of local commercials on this video, from local country buffet Po’ Folks to Cheerwine to news reports on what to do with your organs after you die. Fun stuff all around.
