Dinner With the King Recap – How to be a Cool Heel, Undertaker’s Booking Fee, Women to Main Event WrestleMania? More!
Lawler is joined on today’s show by Glenn Moore.
Lawler notes that while he may have won hundreds of Championships during his career, if he won that much that means he lost that many times as well. Back in those days he would often work with the same person all week, like Eddie Gilbert for example, and the Title would switch hands multiple times. They would be booking those shows right up until the minute they started, because often times they wouldn’t know if certain performers were going to show up.
Lawler informs that he’ll be appearing at Starrcast 2 in the coming months. He had a lot of fun at the first Starrcast but the live episode of Dinner With the King didn’t work out as planned because their announced guest, Terry Funk, didn’t show up.
Moore notes that The Undertaker will start to accept bookings this summer for private events and he’s charging $25,000 for one hour of his time. Moore thinks that might be too expensive, but Lawler isn’t so sure about that. Entertainment prices are through the roof nowadays, and Lawler recently paid the classic rock band, Starship, $35,000 to play at his bar.
