Tim Hall vs. “Flamboyant” Eric Embry (USWA June 29, 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.


Jerry Lawler vs. Ta-Gar (USWA June 29, 1991)

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!

Randy Johnson vs. Ta-Gar (USWA June 15, 1991)

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 needing 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!

Kowabunga vs. Ken Wayne (USWA August 4, 1990)

Ken Wayne apparently thought that Kowabunga was a moron in a turtle costume, but after the wrestling ninja turtle pinned him 1-2-3 in a quick match, he earned Wayne’s respect.

Following the match Kowabunga did the worst karate demonstration imaginable before Jeff Gaylord, Scott Braddock and Downtown Bruno interrupt things and beat up Kowabunga because he sucks before Ken Wayne chases them off with a wooden bar stool.

Memphis baby!

Sean Venom, Steven Dunn & Flash Flanagan vs. Mike Samples, Crusher Bones & Macho Warrior Ric Hogan (USWA November 9, 1996)

You’d think that a six man tag match involving a grappler as decorated and skilled as Macho Warrior Ric Hogan would focus on him, but no, the real stars of this bout are Sean Venom, his “snake box,” and Mike Samples.

Apparently Venom and Samples have a “Snake Box” Match coming up, so Venom brings out the aforementioned device to taunt Samples during the bout.  The entire thing devolves into utter chaos with Venom attempting to put Samples in the “snake box,” Randy Hales hitting Venom with a briefcase, and Macho Warrior Ric Hogan and Crusher Bones having a very workmanlike match in the ring.

Memphis baby!

Macho Warrior Ric Hogan & Crusher Bones vs. TD Steele & Flash Flanagan (USWA November 2, 1996)

Delightful Memphis wrestling wackiness as Macho Warrior Ric Hogan and Crusher Bones take on TD Steele and Flash Flanagan in tag team action.  Hogan and Bones’ manager, Randy Hales (who according to the heap of announcers and commentators is not “an official manager” and thus has no business at ringside) claims that these two fine athletes will soon win the USWA tag team championships.
