Here we have future WCW hero, Jerry Flynn, going up against Bart Vale in a bout from 1991.

“That goofy Leatherface” makes his USWA debut, coming out with Embry and Ta-Gar to scare the hell out of Dave Brown and Michael St. John with his chainsaw.

Embry cuts a promo and yells some shit about Jerry Lawler. He declares, “Well you know, Lawler’s a little bit more stupider than what I thought he was,” and then gets in the ring with youngster Tim Hall.

Sadly this is the final appearance of Ta-Gar on Memphis TV. After the match, Eric Embry runs out and to jump Lawler, but Lawler knocks him out of the ring. There’s then an old clip of Jackie Fargo wrecking house on Moondogs because he’s coming in to team with Lawler in an upcoming bout against Leatherface and Eric Embry.

Memphis baby!

Ta-Gar the Lord of Volcanoes apparently comes from space and arrived in Memphis in the summer of ‘91 looking for gladiators to challenge. A youngster by the name of Randy Johnson answers Ta-Gar’s call and promptly gets beat down via a flaming claw hold. “Superstar” Bill Dundee shows up with a chair to chase Ta-Gar off before bellowing some shit about need a belt around your waist if you want to get real paid and then challenging the decidedly beltless Ta-Gar to a match.

Memphis baby!

During the match Shawn Michaels gets knocked out due to hitting the guardrail on the outside.  Fellow Rocker, Marty Jannetty (wearing an awesome Overkill t-shirt) comes out to help his friend and does so by rolling an unconscious Shawn Michaels into the ring to avoid being counted out.  Ric Flair promptly pins the unconscious Shawn Michaels.  Roughly three weeks later Shawn Michaels would kick Jannetty’s head through a window in Brutus the Barber Beefcake’s Barber Shop.
