Lawler is joined on today’s show by his co-host Glenn Moore.
Lawler opens today’s show by mentioning that he and his old WWE broadcast partner, Jim Ross are planning on doing a series of live shows in 2018, where they’ll be travelling to various cities across the United States talking to fans. The shows will be similar to what Ross has been doing with his one-man shows and will consist of both men sharing old stories and taking questions from the live audience.
Moore mentions that Ric Flair’s ESPN 30 for 30 documentary will be airing tonight, and he’s really looking forward to watching it. Lawler agrees and says that this appears to be a fantastic film so he’s looking forward to seeing it as well. He points out that although he and Flair shared the prime of their careers during the same time period, they rarely worked together.
Lawler was co-Owner of Memphis Wrestling and that kept him local for most of the year. Flair, on the other hand, was World Champion and he traveled everywhere. Lawler says it was hard to get Flair for dates in Memphis and the only time they’d see each other was when he was lucky enough to book Flair to go through Memphis during his travels.
