Jerry Lawler & Chad Shaffler on The Bob Edwards Show

Jerry Lawler and Chad Shaffler visited the program on December 1st, 2011 to talk about Shaffler’s documentary Memphis Heat: The True Story of Memphis Wrasslin’ which tells the story from the carnival days of Sputnik Monroe to integration, female wrestlers, and Jerry “The King” Lawler, who famously wrestled Andy Kauffman. From the introduction:

Originating as a carnival sideshow, professional wrestling has had a colorful history—and some of it is captured in the documentary film titled Memphis Heat: The True Story of Memphis Wrasslin’. Film director Chad Schaffler is my guest today-along with one of his principal subjects-Jerry “The King” Lawler. We’ll discuss Hulk Hogan and Jesse Ventura, the tag teams, the females, the midgets— and the late comic performance artist Andy Kaufman, who went to the hospital after a bout with The King. When we’re done, you’ll know a heel from a babyface.

And if that isn’t enough for you, the program then visited the Nightmare Wrestling School, a professional wrestling school in West Memphis, Arkansas that carries on the tradition of regional training and performances. So join the program as it wraps a corner clothesline around the subject of professional wrestling…
