The PWA Show: Some Like It Hot…..

LAWLER FIREBALL

Episode 41 of The PWA Show has arrived! Hear Chad & Keila recap last weekend’s WWE Hell in a Cell PPV event and the following night’s RAW. How did they feel about the shocking return of Alberto Del Rio? Which talents stand to benefit the most from the absence of John Cena and Randy Orton? Did Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker go too far in a PG Era? Which top WWE star has suffered another injury setback? What pro wrestling icon recently saw a popular tourist stop bearing his name be closed for good? Which popular independent tag team signed an exclusive contract with a national promotion? All these questions and more are answered this week. Chad also discusses his experience last weekend at the third annual Superstars of Wrestling Fanfest in Rome, GA hanging with WWE Hall of Famers Scott Hall, “Mr. Wonderful” Paul Orndorff, Ron Simmons, and other greats of the squared circle. Our roving reporter, “Halfpint”, was in Jackson, TN last weekend for USA Championship Wrestling’s All-Star Tribute to legendary Memphis wrestling announcer, Lance Russell. Chad talks about the main event of that card featuring Terry Funk -vs- Jerry “The King” Lawler. For one night, the clocks were turned back and time stood still. A hot crowd in west Tennessee was reminded of why they love pro wrestling and just who exactly is “The King”. There’s something old and something new and plenty of things just for you on this week’s edition of The PWA Show, YOUR pro wrestling authority.
