Dinner with the King Recap w/ Rock N’ Roll Express – Origins in Memphis Wrestling, Hall of Fame Thoughts, Injuries in Wrestling, More!
Lawler welcomes The Rock N’ Roll Express to the show.
Gibson thanks Lawler for all his kind words, and informs that at one point Lawler fired them from Memphis Wrestling and then re-hired them back all in the same day. Lawler laughs and says he doesn’t remember firing them at all.
Lawler mentions that the longevity of the Rock N’ Roll Express has been unbelievable. Even to this day, they’re still out working independent dates. Gibson says that they continue to do it because of the fans. There’s no better feeling in the world to seeing the smiles on fans’ faces and hearing fans chant for them.
Morton admits that he got overwhelmed with emotion while delivering his Hall of Fame induction speech on Friday night. He had several pages of notes written but he quickly lost his way and forgot to thank several people who they really wanted to thank. Lawler jokes that he knew they were in trouble when he saw the pages getting flipped upside down. In all seriousness, he says that he thought their speech was terrific.
Morton gives Lawler credit for creating their gimmick, and he thanks Lawler because they’ve been able to win Championships and have a lengthy career wrestling around the world. Of all the people he has stepped in the ring with, Morton says that no one tops Jerry Lawler.
