The PWA Show: The Deluxe Tennessee Edition

King Shane Williams 2

This week’s edition of The PWA Show covers all three grand divisions of the “Volunteer State”. Chad & Keila re-cap the WWE Fast Lane PPV which took place last Sunday in Memphis. How does the aftermath of this event affect its participants on the “Road to WrestleMania”? The dynamic duo are also joined by The PWA Show’s very own intern, Big K, as he describes his experience this past Monday attending WWE’s Monday Night RAW in Nashville. Friend of the show, Dustin Kennedy, also calls in to talk about his brush with “The Beast” and how a simple cell phone photo taken by he and his friend of Brock Lesnar enjoying the Music City nightlife cause a stir on social media this past week. Chad and Keila also discuss various other topics including: the greatest “gimmick” characters in pro wrestling history, the implications of the #GiveDivasAChance hashtag that trended this week on social media,  a former WWE Champion that has parted ways with the company, and Chad examines a now infamous late 1980s match from Puerto Rico involving “The Raging Bull” Manny Fernandez and Invader III. Knoxville area based independent wrestler, “King” Shane Williams joins the show for the “PWA Hotseat” segment. “The King” talks about his early years breaking into the business, training in the back of a pool hall, possible “heat” with Jerry Lawler, and what its like to be featured on three different wrestling TV programs in three different states at the same time! He holds nothing back and gives listeners a no holds barred look at what it takes to be a professional wrestler.
