Lawler always considered Rick to be a better technical wrestler than Scott, but obviously Scott’s physique was ridiculous. Apparently Rick is a teacher nowadays and this doesn’t surprise Lawler because it always seemed that Rick was more interested in collegiate wrestling than the business of professional wrestling.

In honour of Halloween, Lawler discusses his love of horror films and monster characters, as well as how he tried to incorporate some of them into Memphis Wrestling back in the late 1970’s and 1980’s. Dr. Frank – The Frankenstein character – was a big part of Memphis television during this era and Lawler mentions that the man who portrayed that character would often have to stay in a small wooden crate throughout the duration of the wrestling show before making his big reveal towards the end of the event.

His offence against most of these monster characters would be a fireball. That was the one thing that he could use to help him get the upper hand on them believably. However, one time Lawler’s fireball went horribly wrong.
