And I literally got fight with S. G G two weeks ago for not appreciating how great I think Chris Jericho is I separate these things? I don't good man. You know I don't I don't allow my personal stuff to get in the way. But when I see that this dude blocked me. Blocked me, on twitter. He seventy years old, why are you blocking co-workers someone who I I may. That I'll have to sit next to you again a desk what are you blocking me for we grow up? Listen. I was upset when you said the things you said about student. Helen Harper. Guess what I got over it because I'm an adult. I said you know what? I gotTA move on I can't carry a grudge for a wrestling storyline from one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, three, I have to move on. Exactly. But Jerry, the King lawler has not moved on. He has me blocked on twitter, which is repugnant. and. Shocking Development, and by the way, he blocked us before I even had time to give you my thoughts on what I think about the invention of the Kamala character. You should have blocked me next week. You haven't even heard this show yet. Because he maybe he maybe he has a spy, maybe he will be listening because he maybe he knew what was coming, which was my God man. I don't know if I would have gone on a media tour this week to talk about the racist inception of the, Kamala? Character. And how racist you are in particular that you saw this painting And didn't see it for what it was and instead thought. All this would be great if we used it. And then and then saddled James Harris with this gimmick. that. Know Kudos to him he shined with inspite of how racist it was. He did. He did he turned it into something? That's for sure worked out. Great for James Harris and listen. You know and I saw. Like Marc Lamont Hill, jumped on twitter, and all of a sudden became a wrestling historian started teaching us all about the history of wrestling. and. and in doing so. Obviously the WWe caught flam. There's plenty of WWe's history to tear down but I I didn't feel like jump getting into it with him, but I wanted to jump in about, Hey, bad example they actually this is actually not their character. Is. Character granted. They did use it they all him in with Hulk, Hogan and all that because. Again he made it. So he was everywhere. But yeah, that that wasn't that wasn't on them. No No. Exactly. They definitely ran with it and played into it and had a good time with it. But at the same time, just not the example necessarily use for wwe but whatever that's neither here. Nor there I did I I sent you the painting by Texas. I know I'm trying to log in my computer so I don't have to do it on my phone, but hold on look on my phone. Let's see. Scorcher life thoughts. So the picture is. There's a white woman. Tied up to like a post. Being protected by a white man with a gun. WHO's shooting off the the seemingly dangerous and savage native people including one One guy wearing a mask. I don't even see to be honest I don't even see where the Kamala inspiration is. The, it's the literally just the mask and then I'm guessing started painting him. Expired by the like. It's literally just a mask. Jerry, took the mask and got free rein to just go. Go crazy with this but that mask is nothing like what Kamala ended up being. You know what I'm saying. Yeah Not, even a little bit. So the Jerry love this painting enough to cooperate it. I just don't understand why he thought. It was a good idea. To like. Go running all over the place talking about this story like it makes him a hero without being like. I realize now like unless I missed it. Did he at any point come out and go I realize now you know what? That characters pretty offensive and it was really playing on some terrible tropes about African people. Well. Here's the thing. This is Jerry lawler talking about. He's been confronted with many. Things he said. And done in the past. That with the twenty twenty lands on. Doesn't look good. It's debatable whether looked good with the Lens. That he had that they had on that but right, it's one twenty twentieth definitely not good. And he has at no point. About anything that anyone has confronted him with. Said, you know what? I can look back now. And say that wasn't the move jewelry will tell you that everything he did was perfect. That was great. That people now too sensitive or to PC. Instead of in this case. Just calling it. What is like? The is obviously there that like..

"Dot com leather at some things about her too. But I'll tell you about Kamala. and. The fact that the character was created by Jerry lawler. And Jerry Jarrett. In the old Memphis as. Something I remembered. And then I saw that he lawler went on with our buddies David Greco and bully ray. Over a busted open. So I saw the post. And I was curious to see. If lawler had tweeted anything when. Receiving word that Kamala died. So so Before you get there Did you see the painting that he based? The Kamala character I do not see the painting, but I heard the description and if you ever were concerned that the character Khumalo was inherently racist I don't think the description of this painting that based on made me feel better about that. The End, the actual painting will make you feel. Even It will. It will confirm that the character. was just like. Inherently, racist from the beginning. So, you're saying that just because he was Kamala that Ugandan giant and he was treated as a cannibalistic savage if that wasn't enough. If that wasn't enough. There's more right? There's what but but but wait it gets worse. I'm trying to find the painting. It's it's. It's awful. But I'll allow you to continue. Thank you by the way to microphones at the same time one for the phone and one for recording. No, this is one. This is one. So how are Utah How you Bluetooth on the phone? And Recording aren't you Bluetooth on the phone to? Zoom. Zoom. Yeah Yeah. So you don't need doesn't matter. You're going directly to your compared the has gone right? I'm smart but you're according on your own as well. Right? I I need that lush g sound that I get. All, right so I was just curious. To See you know listen. White. People have a tendency to want to make ourselves feel better about racism. Like we don't like thinking of racism being all out like as terrible as as it appears you go. Let me see if I can make this a little better. And so I wanted to see. Based on the fact I heard Jerry Lawler, talking about the creation of Kamala. Very. Good. So I was like I wanted to see if he at least put up a good sympathetic tweet when he died. So I clicked on Jerry lawler's twitter account as she jay. And it said. You are blocked by Jerry the king lawler. Oh, I'm sorry. So you know what that made me think immediately, shoot baby. I don't understand. I listened obviously do I care that I'm blocked by Jerry lawler no. I don't really need to look at Jerry lawler's tweets very often in this specific example as a journalist estrogen as a wrestling journalist I, wanted to do some research. And I was denied that research because I am blocked. By petty lawler. Frank. And I started trying to think. So I tweeted it because I thought it was funny and it got a lot of comments back people asking questions. and. As she g correct me if I'm wrong isn't the order of events I started working at wwe. He decided he decided to not lake me I think because I wore the bobby heenan jacket. Yup. Then without my prodding or asking at all. Mark Henry pulled him aside. And be and basically told him. Don't be. A jackwagon. Be Nice to my guy he's a good guy. Right. With them shores I don't know I don't know if he said that we do not know if mark added before you get your ass whip I don't think he said well, I'm assuming that has has has to St Music is playing while he had this conversation with Jerry lawler so it could have been like. Hey right exactly. Just been plot. And then lawler said okay cool and then after that I worked with him. On multiple occasions. And we had friendly conversations. I don't think I've ever tweeted anything negative about him ever I don't think. I guess could search my twitter account. In check. But I don't think I've ever discs Jerry lawler in spite of that even if you even if you did even if I did. I don't know. That, that would be worthy of block. You know because you're a grown man, it's not like let me put it this way. The only people I've not a stranger. The only people I block are like trolling racists terrible human beings. You know also how come you didn't have Jerry lawler block see. As she she that's not what I was where I was going. Oh well. I'm just saying based on your criteria grounds maybe put allegedly alleged. I'm just I'm just looking on looking to see if on. Twitter I ever said anything I. Don't think I ever did. You know. And it's not like. It's also why would we? It's not interest listen. It's not like I've never had the thoughts you know that. Monday night raw during the attitude era wasn't good because of Jerry lawler. But in spite of Jerry lawler. Okay or or I'm amazed that Jim Ross is back is functional in twenty twenty after all those years of carrying Jerry lawler. Him. When he was just screaming puppies and even even for that era, he said things that made you cringe and jr had to be there to clean up on aisle nine nine times a night. Because lawler made jokes that were just horrifying. But the reason I let those things go is because I thought he was a great entering performer I thought he was a great heel wrestler. I really did I mean even? Though I thought that the stuff I'm so I'm so much of an over the top heart fan that I hated the stuff he did about..

Elizabeth Wetmore: Valentine
"Today. I'm very pleased and excited. My favorite thing on bookworm is when I'm talking to a first novelist. And it someone whose work I have not previously known my guest on the show today is a booth wet more Beth wet more. Her book is called Valentine. It's published by Harper and it's novel. Beth. Wet more is fifty three years old and this is her first. Book, she's published many short stories in many of the best literary journals, the Kenyon, Review Colorado Review but this is her first time in hardcover. Tell me Beth what feel nights is finally see the book in hardcover. Well. It's all been a little unreal honestly. I worked on the book for a long time and I was ready to have the editor sort of wrestle out of my hands. Honestly I think if if she hadn't wrestled it out of my hands, I'd probably still be tinkering with it to tell you the truth and even now I occasionally spot a sentence or a paragraph that I think, Oh, I'd like to have a do over on that. But on the whole, it's been wonderful and surprising to me I think I. Expected The book to come out very quietly and and so it's been. Marvelous to see how many people have reacted to it in such a positive way and how meaningful it's been to some people. Yes the book has made its debut as number two when it came out on the New York Times bestseller list and it's set where Beth was born in West Texas in Odessa. Now, if you're me, you think Odessa that's near where my family come from in Russia this is Odessa in. West Texas how does it get its name? Well it depends on who you ask You know the they're part of Texas was settled pretty late in the early eighteen eighty s and depending on on what piece of local you believe it was it was named Odessa in part because of the sort of grasslands that that people said resembled the Odessa in Ukraine. And and and that's really been the most sort of certain story I've heard. No was Texas. is known for its. Economy. I'm sure most of my listeners will know this but what is an oil patch? Well. Odessa is in the Permian Basin which is about eighty, six, thousand square miles inside. So and and of course, West Texas and. is is even more vast right than the Permian basin and it's an oil and natural gas rich region of the country I read recently actually that actually until the until the pandemic, it was on pace to outpace Saudi Arabia for the biggest production in world in the next five years That's slow down and been derailed a little bit by the pandemic of course but it's so an oil patches you know a a part of the world where that is the single economy oil and natural gas. It's not a particularly pretty place in the world at least not by most people's standards I think it's beautiful. There's no other way to make a living out there other than working oil and natural gas and Odessa where I grew up on differs slightly from it sort of sister city, of Midland, which is about twenty three miles away in the sense that Odessa's a very working class town most of the people who live and work in Odessa do the. Blue collar work of the oil patch. So they work is the roughnecks and pipe lawler's and fitters and water haulers and That's still even today a pretty male dominated industry women in that part of the world tend to work in support roles as bartenders and waitresses preschool teachers, teachers, that sort of thing So that's where I grew up.
Early stage human trial data shows Oxford COVID-19 vaccine provides antibodies and killer T cells
"Us some good news on the vaccine front in early stage trials vaccine candidate from Oxford University in AstraZeneca House, no serious side effects and produced an immune response of both antibodies in T cell and participants. The U. S. Has also paid $1.2 billion to secure at least 300 million doses when it's finally available. For more on this vaccine development will speak to Dave Lawler, world editor at Axios. This was the first vaccine along with one in China to move into Phase three, which is the last phase of trials before a potential approval. So Madonna's also we've seen good preliminary results from them. Two. I would say that these three year kind of the front runners that the Oxford won the maternal one and then one that's being produced in China, But Oxford is just a little bit ahead of But during a one in where it is in the process at the moment, Basically, the results that were published today said that there were only minor side effects. Things like soreness, headaches, Some people felt Feverish, perhaps, but no major concerns in terms of side effects, and it did produce an immune response in everybody who got two shots of the vaccine. There's two rounds. Of immunization with this vaccine, so promising early results. Now we have to see the results from Face three, which is much broader testing, and it's happening now. And how does this vaccine work? The immune response that it's producing is antibodies and then also t cells as well, right? Right, So this works on two fronts. I was actually just speaking with an epidemiologist who was very impressed by the level of immunity that was generated by this vaccine. That's one of the good indications here is that it's possible to produce a vaccine that does have a strong Immune response. The what we don't know is is this actually going to prevent everybody who gets it from getting Corona virus? This could be They get the virus and then they have an immune response, and in the meantime, they might be able to spread it or won't be entirely foolproof. We won't know that until there's a longer term testing, and like I said, Phase three trials are happening now, so we should get clearer result. So we know that you know, If you get two shots of this vaccine, you will produce antibodies. You will have a level of immunity. But we don't know whether it's going to be 100% effective and we don't know whether you could still get the virus and then fight it off more quickly than you otherwise would have. That's the big question. Last week, British researchers reported that People that get infected with the virus may see these antibodies start fading pretty quickly, maybe within a few months. So that raises that big question of long term protection. The immunity there. One of the big questions to watch out for after this is who gets all of the vaccine's first I'm obviously the whole world wants this. The U. S government does have a steak and a lot of different vaccine candidates, including this one by Oxford and AstraZeneca. They paid $1.2 billion to secure at least 300 million doses, but That's the big question. And also the point you raised previously that we don't know how long immunity will ask also factors into the equation here, right? Because already you need two shots from this particular back scene. So nearly every American a really high level of Americans and people around the world would need to shop that is Just an astronomical amount of doses to be able to produce and deliver. Then you add in the fact that we don't know how long immunity will last. So if this is a six month thing I'm here. We're gonna need to then have enough production for everybody to get another round of vaccinations. This is going to be a logistical Nightmare. And, Yeah, we do have the point now where Richard governments are pre ordering doses of the vaccine, right? The promising one even some that earlier in the process, you know, governments are buying up doses of them in case they work. That's a good thing because it allows them. It gives them resource is to fund this production. But it's a bad thing, because if you are a middle income country, or you know a developing country Are you going to be last in line to get this vaccine? And is there going to be enough? You know, even in the first year or so of production for you to get the vaccine, there are people working on this question. This is something that's some governments have spoken out on there, maybe systems in place By the time these vaccines there are rolling off the line and ready to go. But it's a huge question Mark and I think that's just one of the reasons why we have good news today, But there's a lot more hurdles to jump over. Exactly. AstraZeneca has committed to me. Two billion doses, and they say maybe one billion of those could be available by the end of the year. And that's the thing that I guess. They said that it could be cleared for emergency used as early as October, possibly but still going to take a little time to roll it all out. So that would be for really high risk people. It would almost be another phase of testing right. They would roll it out wider to people who are at particular risk. Maybe frontline workers and things would get it early. But it just won't be ready on a massive scale until at some point next year. Probably early next year is the timeline that Anthony thought she has put out there. So we're hoping that that The case. But we won't know exactly because you know, as as we've talked about this face three is just getting underway. I mean, it's a scientific marvel that we have three Vaccines now heading into phase three trials only seven months after this outbreak was discovered, so it's by far the fastest that anything like this has ever moved.

Former Player and Agent Donald Dell
"Everyone John Wartime here is this week's sports illustrated? Tennis podcast is also the first week of Wimbledon. He says wistfully our guest this week. Is Donald Dell? Donald is a former player a promoter broadcaster at agent. He's worn many hats, not unlike Bartholomew Cubans. He is also worn many at once. Donald is still force in tennis. He wrote an op Ed recently in the Washington Post, about the prospect of combining the men's and women's tours, so we talk about that. We talked about where tennis is right now, and as a bonus, Donald signed Michael Jordan out of North Carolina and especially after last dance. We talk about Michael Jordan so some non tennis bonus coverage on Michael Jordan and a lot of good tennis. Talk here's Donald Dell. Appreciate you doing. How are you doing? I'm doing fine We've been lucky I've been home since about March fifteenth, but my two daughters, their husbands, and our two grandchildren, five and seven are about thirty yards from where we are, and it's like one hundred twenty day thanksgiving. It doesn't sound bad. Yeah, let's I I. Don't know but I got a couple of things to bring up. I. Did want to talk about the the op-ed you wrote. Wrote thought you'd be a good person to talk about with the the tour merger, which has been eclipsed lately by a Co bit in the US Open, but this was sort of a hot topic, and everyone says the same thing which is great idea. The devils in the details, so let's let's advance that. How do we exercise those those devils details? How do we push through? So this becomes more than. In abstract idea that we need to negotiate what what are we doing to make this happen? Well I I think I think more than that. The Devil Devil's in the the leadership in other words I think it's GonNa take strong leaders it both part, both groups to get done, and I think Steve. Simon, and Mickey Lawler. Are Really, veterans, and and well respected, and well like Gatanzi the new chairman of the ATP I'm told his very smart very capable. And I. Think if the if they wanted to really do it, they get together. And then it takes a lot of support. You Know Billie, Jean and Roger, and some of the leaders in the game. All got behind it, then you. It's sort of like all the protests out there today you gotTa. You gotta move the ships and it's a big alphabet soup that everybody sort of fights for their turf. The ATP tour. Has Really established itself, but it's not part of the grand. Slams not far the idea. And not that that they want to be I don't Miss Other Sami, but I just think. Recently in the last six or eight years, the ATP tour has not worked very effectively in some senses because they've been voting in blocks the three tournament directors vote together. The three player reps vote together, and then the chairman's left. There was hanging vote and literally one vote because he always makes one side unhappy in the last two chairman. If you review John have been fired. Because one group didn't like how voted, and they need a super majority of forty two to extend. His contract so his contract ran out. In the last two cases now I'm told by people that very close to respect the Gal Gal Danzi is quite a different. Person needs a very strong leader, very smart and media and he really gets it. I just think for the sport It would be really helpful to have the two groups. Merged on a on a simple basis, and the when you talk about the details, you're right but I think the simplicity is what matters keep it simple stupid when you want to merge the to start with you don't have to have exactly the same boards, the same voting members, but come in and merge it, and have you know five or six basic principles and truthfully. We, found out in Washington with the city open that Iran for fifty years literally for the WTI ESPN Tennis Foundation. That We. We had a men's only event for forty two years, and then city came along our title sponsor, and rightfully said look fifty one percent of our clients. Bankers are women, so we're not gonNA. Unless you'll bring a women's tournament into it and we did, but it was a problem because there's a bigger women's event at Sanford for seven hundred thousand, we were only allowed by the rules for two fifty, but guess what. The ATP the minority of the ATP ten percent fought it tooth and nail. They didn't want it integrated tournament. And I to go before the board three different times, and swear up and down that we give him favorability on the scheduling of the Center Court. Scheduling, transportation scheduling practice courts. And it just didn't. It's working okay. And the women, the best women like to play Washington but now under the new WTA rules. We can only sign one of the top twenty in the world in order to protect the other event. That's raising more prize money by seven hundred or more, so those kind of problems out to be worked out and the ATP tour really needs to get a stronger with this membership the the the vocal minority, which is really only about ten or twelve percent, and it's always the complainers on the tour. The to aboard knows who they are, and they're always ranked between one hundred, fifty and three hundred,

What does your front page looked like at the moment was some headlines that are standing out and up. What will imagery? Are you running with well? Yeah, we have focused on reopening. Starting to move again today, for example, the borders between the French and Dutch side with four Boorda points. They were close or allows two months because of the French side of course have their own go vitz protocols. That's the. The national protocols. And, it was deemed a safer for everybody to build temporary. Grosso's borders those are open up against us today, so that's for example is. Is something that will be focusing on though. What's the immigration pattern light between the two sides of the island? Because obviously, there's a there's a border through the middle of it. There are two separate countries on this very small islands. So how does movement between those two places happened during the pandemic? One, thing you have to understand when you live. Like ours somebody may live on the French side, but were on the site vice versa, so he needed people to be able to continue to work. Be Able to go to work. Of course. There were options for people to work from. But, if you do the type of work that allow you stay home and work via remote. You, we'll have to go and be able to job now that some sectors you had to have. Both Dutch Francesa side governments travel. And Yeah, a you need special boss. Some people had special like like myself. MEDIA PERSON STARTING TO GET A. Disaster Media Bosso. Normal time time. If you're normal times, there is no border. So he can freely move across the border. We only have a border control. Join Border Control at the. Airports, but we don't have joint border controls at the order points between the two sides of the. That's the beauty of this.

High Avalanche Danger Out West Affects Transportation And Ski Areas
"To another story now. It's been a chaotic couple of weeks in the rocky mountains where large avalanches have closed highways ski resorts a single storm near Salt Lake City. It triggered a record forty eight slides as NPR's Kirk siegler reports. The increased avalanche risk comes at a time when more and more people are hitting the slopes in the high country. God probably Craggy Teton Mountains of North West Wyoming steep and deep Jackson hole is as a magnet for extreme skiers right. They're buddies goading them on on Matt Beauregard. And Rick lawler drop a fifteen foot cliff in this glade. Area called the tower three shits as just a melody honestly. You were just rep around rounded bounce. Skiing inbounds inside. The patrolled boundaries of the ski resort generally thought to be safer when it comes to avalanches. That's because all season skiers. I've been packing this snow down and stabilising it. But Matt Beauregard knows that's no guarantee we've actually triggered small slides on this exact face. They may duck a rope and ski ski out of bounds into the back country. But even here at the resort. They're wearing avalanche transceivers and safety gear. Just in case education's probably the most important thing. Rick here's wearing an air bag for added protection so in the case that he is stuck inside an avalanche you'll be able to pull this cord and hopefully float to the surface inbounds or in the back country. Avalanche danger is high across the mountain west. An unusually snowy early season followed by drought than dry powder. Storms then a punch of heavy wet snow last weekend in Utah. Today's storm dumped six and a half feet in Little Cottonwood Canyon home to the snowbird and Alta resorts awards and it ended up closing little cottonwood for fifty four hours and forty eight. Avalanches were reported one of those hit. The Road Mickey Champion is a forecaster here at the Utah Avalanche Center. She recorded wind speeds up to a hundred miles an hour on Ridge tops that further destabilize the already volatile snowpack in the Wasatch satch mountains. And then you put a big wrong heavy load or a wind load on top of that it just kind of upside down. It's like a pyramid when you take out the Baser Django when you remove one of the pieces says there were no fatalities reported in Utah. But last month skiers were buried and killed in avalanches within patrolled terrain at resorts in California and Idaho. Oh all of this is putting the round. The clock work. People tasked with keeping these mountains safe under the microscope Jackson Hole. Ski Patrol Director Drew Neilan stepping into his bindings above. You can't see it in the fog now. But there's a big cirque above us here and that's Casper Bowl. All and all that terrain is avalanche terrain every morning at dawn before the tram and the Gondolas Starts Spinning Army of Nielsen's patrol or detonating explosives lives to intentionally trigger slides. Now so skiers don't later and some of these can even be detonated remotely thanks to new robot like trolleys that reach even more dangerous surest remote places. Obviously we worry about avalanches coming down into the heavily congested areas. So that's one of our biggest concerns to get that work done early. Another big concern is simply that more. People are venturing out further into areas. They normally wouldn't have thanks to improved equipment. I think people assume that we're able that. We have the ability to completely eliminate the risk of avalanches within the scary. And that's just not the case but avalanche forecasters say along with the increased risk. It comes a new cachet becoming cool to say. You've taken avalanche courses and Dir as prepared as you can be Kirk Siegler N._p._R.. News Jackson Wyoming.

"We do a lot on my podcast. I I had a podcast for the last couple years actually called dinner with King. It was on a different ahead of different co host in the end. We we need to do a show. We need to do a podcast. One day to tell you about what what happened with my old podcast dinner with the king and my my host which for I've known the guy for nine years and I thought he was a close friend of mine and and and found out. I mean I mean I like the guy so much that it's hard for me to now. Ema think that he did all the stuff that he did intentionally. I think I think he just went across went through some bad times but anyway he got all screwed up to where He was he. He was taking advantage of the fans on the on the A podcast by contacting them and offering them commissioned artwork by me offering them crowns to that worn in the ring offering offering them shirts that had worn on raw and and he would have them by the stuff and send a payment to him personally through pay pal account and and never tell me anything about it and then all of a sudden after few months I was sitting in New York and I'm I'm doing signing wrestle con up there and this guy it comes up and says hey jerry when you think might might be able to get that the artwork you promise neat way talking about and the anyway starts telling me awesome well through the guy's name was Glen Maury said to Glen. I bought some artwork. I paid six hundred dollars for And as in he keeps telling me that did you just haven't had a chance to do it that you're gonNA get around to it anyway. Make a long story short. I had to part ways but before we did he he had done that to probably twenty or thirty people and really taking them for lot. I got sued by a person that he'd taken fifteen hundred dollars for me to paint them paint. Ain't a picture and I knew nothing about it and so so anyway. That's that's where he and he was the guy that was kind of behind that dinner with King podcast gas. He put it up and so that that kind of went away and then I got approached by The people that podcast one that you're with and and I got the new host of Sean Reedy and we got us. We simply call it Jerry. lawler show because he sean and ice I used to love to watch Jerry. LAWLER SHOW DOWN IN MEMPHIS.

"Out Jerry. The King Lawler WanNa Great Time One of my favorites about time right here right now here. Let's guy but with with The King Jerry. lawler one of my favorite pro wrestler of all time and We're looking at each other on computer screens. He's doing his hair. Nobody touched up as makeup. Now I didn't know we're going got to be on camera just figured out how to work as video. It's go there. I'm honored that I could be talking to you on this day. Technology is a son August. Also and so I just I just finished the first half of my my podcast just a few minutes ago. I had drew McIntyre on with me today. What do you think about drew McIntyre? I really like it and like even more after talking to him. I hadn't even really been around him. And just you know. Doing Commentary Arianna matches and stuff recently and then Monday night. He had great interaction with Randy. Orton so After the show after the show is over Rebecca the TV hotel. And we're get get some food down down at the bar there. They stayed out late for everybody. Drew was there and he just he came up to me and I never really even spoken to him that much backstage or anything anything. Then he came up to me and had a question he said will be listened to your podcast and I said really surprised. I've taken back. He's Oh yeah I love it and and I had a question about Bill Dundee than he said is he is he really Scottish. or He'll Stralia he's always wanted to know and so anyway I don't the background of Bill Court. Bill was actually from Scotland and he was one of those guys when I think he said when he was twelve years old he ran away from home with the circus. Circus came through down and bill ran away from home win with the circus and the circus travel from Scotland down to Ireland and then from there over to Australia A.. And that's where bill got into wrestling and so he always any state is stayed in Australia until he came to the states in nineteen seventy six and so he just he always always claimed well he would tell anybody that actually wanted to know that he was really from Scotland but just going to be Australian because he came up with George Barnes and they you know they call themselves. The Australians Australian so drew was really interested to hear that story and then he also asked me about the man. I never knew that you were going to have a match with Elvis there this it was really interesting so it was. It was cool to know that somebody out there like like drew was listening to the podcast. That was really interested in it so but then then when we had him on today found out a lot about his background just grew up mazing. He said I've just was a big mark. And he said man they said invention you. Of course you said Ho Cogan Cogan Than Stone Cold Steve Austin and he said I was a huge bret. The hitman Hart Fan and he said to oil used to hate. You came when you I said those bad things about breadth parents and everything and I just wanted him to be so bad but anyway he was he was he loves the business he really does. These cited to be where he is right now so as far as people that you think they should Bush. Should I give this guy. I mean. They'd been pushing him but for green light with this guy can go all the way the company they can be the Guy I think he could be guy and we all know That they've been looking for. Somebody sits Johnson and tried so hard with the Roman reigns and and you know ended. Of course Romans over big eight silvers. Probably as good as anybody that they've that they've pushed in that to that extent but I still think there's room for. He's not John. CENA is not a stone cold. Steve Austin he's not a rock yet and they're looking for that type of personality and I really think just being around him and watching. It looks fantastic. I really think that he could be the guy. And that's another thing he was saying. They're there for the first this time they're given him opportunity to be himself and that's the one thing. Now that Paul Heyman is sort of in charge of all it's it's so much not the characters that are not being are not being so predetermined by the writers or creative. They're giving the guys a chance to be themselves this. It's like you were at the time you know back back. You don't go Steve Austin. Nobody was in there. Tell you know this is how you gotta be you yourself. You were given that opportunity and you you and you took it. Wouldn't micromanaging Antonia every single thing to do you kinda turn into a robot and you think man and Madonna's riding my doing this wrong screwing us sub too much in your head and I'll never forget I was. I was going back. I've been looking most of them. US W. A.. And I'll I'll never get again just kind of watch. Some of close up television tapings. It were there in Memphis. You know golly man I that was a learning experience in you there was so many veterans and Universes Long Tail Cat Rubella a little rock and chairs but you go out there and learn to do it and you're going to mess up and then you're gonna come back and either get scolded or critiqued by the veterans but you gotTa learn earned hell. It took me. I was no overnight. Success took me a long time to find out who I was and you know. Dutch would give me the stunning Steve Name. But I would never cared talked to her gimmick until I are character a defined character until I came up with the stone cold thing and took me several months to grow into that When drew McIntyre was telling you about stone cold or Old Hulk Hogan all the names Bret Hart the names that are listed and he talked talked about how you made you mad and talking about Bret. Hart's Mother and father but did he go back because I'm not blowing smoke up your ass. Pejorative my favorite Russell of all time year this classic Brawling Style and my opinion when you consider yourself or would you or wouldn't you consider yourself more of a brawler than a Scientific Chrysler. Oh my gosh without a doubt. Yeah I never knew crap about wrestling right. But that's about it and today today is even even even more distinct from what it was back in my day your day. Whatever I mean I actually said on air the other day said somebody did some kind of flip I'm flopping off the top rope Dive in triple somersault. And I said I said man. I don't know what that was called but I bet it's hard to pronounce as you know..
Sleep & Parenting with Therapist Christine Lawler
"Right. Everyone have Christie lawler here. And she is the peaceful sleeper. She's a marriage and family therapist and asleep specialist. She's passionate about helping MOMS feel more empowered in parenting and a huge part of that is getting some rest and I would argue just a huge part of feeling empowered in your life in general is getting some good rest so thank you so much for being here Kristie. I'm so excited for what you have to say in offer everyone listening listening so thank you. Thank you so much for having me. I'm excited yes so I'd love for you. I guess to kind of tell us in your own words. What exactly you do and how you got into to it? Yeah so I'm marriage and family therapists have been doing this for ten years. And even before I had babies I was realizing all the time that my clients that were the most stuck the ones that were the most depressed the most anxious the most annoyed with their spouses where it felt like nothing was really shifting. Those were the clients that had the biggest sleep problems and as an insomnia sufferer myself and a perfectionist. I hated that my answer would like. Oh yes sleep is hard Let's talk about the the real stuff and so I went ahead and I got trained to treat chronic insomnia and that's where I learned not surprisingly but kind of surprisingly that eighty eighty percent of people with mental health problems have underlying sleep issues. Wow which is so huge and I realize like oh my gosh. The key to mental health and wellbeing is getting good sleep and then fast forward. I had babies of my own and struggled with postpartum depression. But I knew ooh that it was because I was sleep deprived and then anyway fast forward. I delve into everything that could about sleep training. I kind of hated it as a therapist and like I said as perfectionist. I hated it that so many of the books in resources were very mom shaming. I felt like everything was very like fear. Fear driven. Like if you don't do it this way then you're crafty parent and then somebody else's like no no you don't do it this way. Then you're a crappy parent and I was like I wanna be a really good parent and I don't know how to do it but I know that I need sleep and I know that my baby needs sleep and so I kind of figured out my own method blending in all of them together and then I had another baby and it worked again and I was helping my friend sleep train. Their babies and I kind of realized like wait. Maybe I'm onto something that I can be voice in the space. That says sleep is really really really important. I research detachment for years. That's another thing that kind of drove me. Nuts is so many people were like fostering unhealthy sleep habits and the name of good attachment which just wasn't correct. I feel like a lot of moms now with all the resources versus. We have an all this stuff on the Internet. We can get really overwhelmed and kind of go into a rabbit hole of mom shame and fear and so anyway I just. I don't know I kind of realized that I wanted my voice in the space to help. MOMS feel empowered and really restore the the magic of motherhood. That comes when everybody is resting. Well 'cause like like that. I battled with postpartum depression and being tired tired and exhausted and looking at my sweet perfect little baby but not feeling that magic feeling guilty about it and I realized like the magic totally totally came back when I had good sleep
Get More Clients Using Content, with Jessica Lawlor
"Hey everybody in welcome. Welcome to another episode of how I built it. The podcast that asks. How did you build that today? My guest is Jessica lawler. She is the founder and CEO of Jessica lawler in company a content management business. Jessica how are you today. I'm doing great Joe. Thanks so much for having me. Thanks for being on the show. I'm excited to talk about about this because while I This producing content is a kind of primary business now between courses on the podcast. I feel like I just. I recently started to be intentional about my messaging and kind of the flow of a podcast season. So I'm excited to talk to you. Talk to you as well. And that's great to hear awesome awesome. So why don't we start off with a little bit about who you are and what you do absolutely so we name is Jessica. I my background's uh-huh actually in public relations. So I graduated from College in Twenty Ten temple university here in Philadelphia. I study PR. That was what my career was in for a while all. But I've always loved to write in communicating. The writing is something that I've always been super passionate about very excited about and over the years I've had various blogs jobs. I had a book review blog at one time. I had a personal blog at one time and I have more of a business blog but while I was in college and then as I started my career in public relations I was creating content online. BMI blog and via social media. And actually it was through my blog that I landed my first professional freelance writing opportunity. I actually met someone on twitter. who asked me if I'd be interested in helping to create some blog content and I realize the kind of open up this whole world to me that you you can really build a career and developed a passion through content and so ever since then I've kind of built a side hustle doing freelance writing and then in three years? I took my side Hustle fulltime and I started Jessica Lowering Company which I call Jalen Co for short and it's all about content management in helping people to to tell better stories. That's fantastic for a couple of reasons first of all This is this is going to be telling of You know I didn't. I didn't do a lot of deep research but I like to be surprised and I was surprised to hear that you are in Philly. I am in the West Chester area. Oh my gosh what a small world I know so we are relatively close and That's it's it's really cool to hear how you ended your first Kind of professional content professional rating gig. I feel the same thing happened to me with with websites websites. Basically somebody. WHO's like you're good with computers? Can you make a website and I said no I said I'll pay you And that like you said opened up a whole world to me so That's a really great story which is good because that's kind of what we're going to talk about I kind of started the top of the show that I've been trying to be more intentional about my content and and and putting out the right messages. Maybe we can start with a when you get a new client or customer. What's the first thing? Can you do to make sure they are telling the right story such a good question. It all starts with a lot of research when I when I land a new client. I mean I want to really get to know them. I WANNA learn about their business. Ns I WANNA do as much research as possible. So I really like to ask them if I can take a look at past materials labor. It may be. They already have a blog. Maybe they're just getting started so I do. You have kind of on boarding questionnaire where I asked him questions about who their audience. Who are they trying to reach? What problems are they helping to solve kind of some of those typical marketing questions? Russian that you've probably heard before but really the biggest issue That I hear from clients or potential clients is they just don't really know where where to begin when it comes to content and a lot of them also are wondering is it still worth it to create content when there's so much noise out there right now and obviously my answer to that is yes. It's definitely worth it but really what I love to do to help. People kind of rain in all of their ideas has and create a strategic content calendar. That will actually help the bottom line and help them reach their goals. Whatever that may be Gotcha and do I find that? A lot of people Well let me. I'll give you some context. I last year I interviewed Josh Garoppolo. And we kinda talked about how a a lot of people in their messaging want to just reach. Everybody like my target audience is anybody who wants to buy stuff from me Do you do you find that. A lot of people are not sure what problems they're trying to solve our. Do they say that right. Have people identified the problem that they're trying to solve by the time they get to. You sometimes no oh I mean sometimes yes sometimes no a great example here is I work with the right life dot com so it's a website for writers and one question that were always asking ourselves is who is our audience because writer is a very broad term. Could be a freelance writer. It could be a technical writer. It could be someone who wants to publish a book Doc. Be a nonfiction author ghostwriter. There's so many types of writing so even within you know the right life knows who is trying to reach we wanNA reach writers and then even from there. It's kind kind of do. We need to niche down asking those hard questions so I find that sometimes people do have an idea. They have a broader audience that they're trying to reach an and and you know we try to figure out what are the different Types of content we create Tarija various audiences kind of within their larger audience. If that makes sense

Drop here if you've got a question you WANNA ask about next week show well just cruise on over to at Jr.. Grilling alling on twitter. Jim I'm going to give you a few here rapid fire. Let's get through as many as we can. Are you ready. Yes sir. Michael wants to know when you're in. WCW was there ever talk of bringing all their in their. Don't recall any serious talk whatsoever but we would have been smarter and better company. We had Carl Fitzgerald wants to know. What's your favorite one liner? You remember over the years Jerry lawler on air. Oh my God that's impossible to name sex saying what's your children you like. The best are the better my case. Too many men It's just. He used to sit there. He had notes he had. He had his own material. And it got so dog-eared and tattered because he'd never changed it it was just he thinks he liked to certain go to jokes based on category. But what Jerry did. The most it's amazingly was during the show he would doodle little cartoons little characters all over his format appreciates and some of them were R. rated or worse Are Better than in your perspective but I always say it took all your doodling from TV sheets and put into a little. Paperback Book Is Money Because of cartoons and all and it was he and I come up with the cash but never got around to it but unfortunately that's what he did the most but he's he's a big dude learn at during the matches When we were working together? But he's so he's just he's amazing. You know amazing on how you can process what he sees into a story that fast understand. Let's talk a little a bit about The artwork you mentioned deplorable. Hombre wants to know. Do you have any lawler. Aren't work at home. And if so what's your favorite piece and why well I do not have any and it's not because I haven't requested You know for years I stayed on his ass about making a Christmas discard a character. Your Christmas card and kind of comedic thing a Janney and unfortunately we never got around to that but I seen seen at other shows. We've done if you haven't seen jurors artwork goes website man. He's a he's a break artist he said. Well what's what's what's he like. Well he draws a lot like Norman Rockwell. So if you haven't seen lawler's artwork Google Norman Rockwell. Look at some of the work. He does is pretty astonishing. Auditing obviously with Jerry's deal. He's he's very very gifted. He could've made a great living as an artist if he had not decided to go to be. The Iran ran on the canvas convening squared circle. So he's really brilliant. In that regard I say all the time. It's a time management and discipline. You took the time to organize Organiz itself Jerry lawler on the great calendars of all times. Little these creative so calendars posters or any of those things. He's this is Brianna. James Watson was a true. Jr was the man had to let Brian Christopher go. Yeah I'll give notice I did as part of my job. You know I did like it but I had no I you know he got. I assume they're referring to when he when when he got stopped at the border and Canada I we had no leg to stand on got popped in. He had he had substance on him. That didn't need to either there. You know I I had just fulfil what I what I was told to do but it was not you know you know what you gotta do. We can't can't have so. Yeah so yeah I did. I did and it wasn't fun. I wasn't a proposition part of that job. I used to do their folks not as glamorous as sometimes make it out to be and let people know the bad news is not. What is no fun whatsoever? Jim Wants to know what series best quality as a CO commentator. Well He's he's quick witted and he processes what he sees very rapidly and like I said earlier it can turn processes into dialogue. That is is valuable to the viewer. So I think him processing what he sees in a rapid fire and then coming back with something that that makes everything mix. Ah where he makes this point. Even more clear is a great gift he has. He's able to visualize things and he's against intelligent and in some of mazing is or how you could create dialogue right right bow and I found out that Mr earlier what what lesson that spontaneity is is it too much preparation and you know we never went down. It's okay I'll say this king you say that it was always looking I'll start the segment and and bring it to you and he didn't know how to bring it to him. He's he listened and so yeah if processing was amazing and a great crowd psychology psychology. In general he's an old school guy didn't have a college degree you know. Is He's hard hard knocks honor student. But he's straight H smart and so he uses that vantage. Well we appreciate you guys tuning in this week to grill in Jr.. This was a fun episode. Hope you had a great thanksgiving. We're going to get December December kicked off right next week we're going to talk about Bischoff in the wwe.

And being prompt and ready professional do his work and so and then it also because so many of the talents that we had were familiar with his his exploits in the ring he was a great source for information of. What do you do here? What would you do their idea for this? I need to heat spot. I need a quick finish. Whatever and Jerry was great at sharing that information Louis Guy so I just felt like it was a win win for everybody involved if we get him back get his Jersey back on him and start are playing again well he starts playing again in November November nineteenth two thousand one so he misses March April may June July August September and October? Nobody here you go. He's back in November and he's been there pretty much ever since and he's had some some brief breaks here there but one of the big things we should mention as a He's putting the hall of fame and he gets put in Bob William Shatner. Yeah what's up with that. Well we know who stole the show. That two thousand seven hall of fame induction ceremony the dream and going on last with Sintus inducting him that was the highlight for me in that regard but selfishly opening the show with stone. Cold is my in doctor was hard to top hard act to follow. And but Jerry wanted I think a lot of guys I had a big hand I wanted select doug me and all that stuff and it was a no brainer to me. Steve is happy to do it and he wasn't he was that's not always area of expertise so he he didn't have to do it but he did it because he loved me and he said as much on the show but the thing with Jerry he was he wanted he wants to stand out. He wasn't going on. I was a key spot. Because Austin and that he wasn't GonNa last but that was a dream spot not so wherever he was in the pecking order on that night. He assure he wanted to be good. I would say they want to be stand out steeles steele the spotlight steel. Show as they say well. His plan was to get Justin Timberlake. A kid from Memphis who became world tamous as we all know as the entertainer singer Cetera. But he was a big fan lawler's growing up because water was his superman. Lauda was a superhero. Those TV the every Saturday morning they did a live. Ninety minute show the Great Lance Russell Day round every Saturday morning lies show no net and and this the star of that show more often not in one form or another was jerry the king lawler so the these kids like Justin Timberlake for example. I grew up in that area. Kate was a guy so but just the dates couldn't work out con scheduling conflicts. PREVENTED IT HAL. Shattner got on board is is beyond me. They did a little spot. One time on on raw where a lot took a bump for Shatner and That may have been the catalyst to it. I'm not aware that Jerry's a big star wars fan. But he might be but in any any event are member said in the Green Room that day nurses a horn church. Thank you have. I was going to do my presentation right out of the box. And then I had the default stone cold immediately which is not going to be easy. So I'll book myself there on that deal So I'm worried and then I hear Shattner till s lawlor s with Russia's. Where's the prompter and I haven't seen my script yet? There was no script. Bill I said Mr Shattner. Just call me bill. Okay Bill Bill. There's no script is ad Lib Edward City and he got look fright because I was standing behind him looking down at hairpiece. I WANNA see. CVS earpiece or not how that worked worked. Because I was I was it was mysterious to me. How he gives us Nash Looking Air? The obviously be peace nice to east but a piece unless Australia. Investigate that standing behind him sitting down talking to somebody look the other way I spent her days folks. So that's how that worked out Google's Cheddar got the deal. Hey Look on paper if you didn't see his performance. It's pretty impressive deal. Jerry Lawler is presented by William Shatner. Shatters GonNa he's he's he's over he's got a baby face following this and you don't believe or go to Israel sometime watching what's gotta crowded Ross. So that's how that worked. It was a fun night. Two thousand seven. That's the weekend that we do. The Donald Trump missing man thing with bobby Lashley and Maga the hair being here thing and rushing rushing twenty-seven lawler finally gets his wrestlemainia match and Of course rethinking Jerry. Lawler you think about all this famous feuds and all the big matches he had course none bigger probably than Bret Hart is Wrestlemania match after all. These years is with Michael. LAWLOR IS GONNA a win by submission and the anonymous raw general manager will reverse the decision due to Steve Austin. He's the referee here. Physically getting involved in the match by pushing coal and that may coal the winner by disqualification. Come on man. Jerry lawler finally gets a match at wrestlemania against smarter coal. You're friends with both of these guys. Would you think well versus Moco would have would have had no problem whatsoever putting lawler over course and and secondly why the decision was made saving Michael Coalfield. You're next big program at next year's Wrestlemainia are you shitting me. Come all over the years. That's what happens sometimes in wrestling. Awesome when you start to go back and evaluate something it makes no sense. There's no upside for having this loose. ended non conclusive finish is poor creative and being God damn lazy and I see that a lot in on TV and around. There's the laziness goddamn producers and coaches at agents You know I just annoying to me. That's another that could be a whole damn show but yeah I That made no sense and I called it. I was there. They got that push ticket to give me a a gratuitous well jr bone. I got a bone for you. You stick up your ass house that come on. Uh What did you think to the. You know. He's finally wrestlemania match. It's got to be a big deal to him even though he probably downplays it. I mean it's it's Wrestlemainia and he's you know. been around for a long time. This is the biggest show. He belongs to have a mass there. He deserves it my whole coal. What a shows you that allow the creative input that vessels getting less from people had never seen Jerry serious work when he was on fire in Memphis or an Awa to other places Isis as a face or heel they had one vision? Jerry lawler a comedian a comedy wrestler. That's their vision of Jerry lawler. And they were internal so the infant visit getting. Is You know we could do this. We are this. Get One more that we can just the coal Blah Blah Blah. And of course billy laughed thorough study and and I don't think it's funny to get even with lawler. Because he thinks thanks that deep in that regard he might he might but I think they thought it was being entertaining aspects of show in this lousy. So let me up segments. Let me up segment where you have a serious business going on boom boom boom then you have a match worse kind of let me up you take the foot off the gas. I got a cool here and I think us as comedy or short match between unskilled people and that was not the case there with lawler his skills inbound on the roster but bottom line was it that was his perception as a comedian. And now I see he's even he's doing a little bit more straight stuff on. TV has his jokes here there and Yon on but they don't have anybody sitting out there Monday nights it has a better feel for how to analyze a match and get talent over then Jerry lawler so he's the best color guy that got in my view when he wants to be that guy but sometimes you know he is easy for him to be swayed. He's like Jerry so much like Bobby Heenan in their amazing skill. Set as good as I've ever seen it all the boxes they check But you know Jerry area had rather be funny. He'd rather be entertaining. Because the recipe seeing is not community of being serious oftentimes at least I perceive I might be wrong. So he's a he's A. He's still evolving in that regard. Much like Jerry mentioned earlier but You know he's it left his own devices. It'll be a little bit funny but when the moment costs are for the knuckle up and ended call a serious match. He could still do that with the best of them. What do you think Akao lawless legacy in the wrestling business is going to be? Do you think because such a big audience saw doing comedy that it's going to be comedy and puppies and all that. Yeah probably yes the older audience. Conrad even even down dipping a year. Not all your your your your age group Can Remember lawler as they serious star whether it'd be in Florida or Atlanta Course of Memphis best known for his AWA Tyler. Run and stuff. carry-on Eric Orca vern all those things. The Dallas experimentation where you had the Texas Talent Dallas Tennessee talent in Dallas. All that stuff. He's an empty rematches as match all these great stars The angle we did the other day with Jerko and and Scorpio Sky was essentially the same basic angle that lawler where did with flair nineteen eighty two. So He's not given credit for those situations very much at all these. You'll always be known to me as I've always said this Conrad on right now. Truly believe it that the two men or the most boxes checked with a high level skill sets plural. Were Bobby Heenan and Jerry lawler wrestling. He'll maybe face tag teams blood and guts.

"Good night's sleep and let your body rest and go to deep ram sleep and I just say. I believe that you can do that more easily purple mattress and anything anything you know and again. What is the risk? There is no risk folks. Try It try for one hundred nights and if you don't like it or some anything you talk about it send it back that simple. Let's keep moving here. Let's talk about. I can't believe this is this is happening. But we're still wrestling in. Two thousand one feels like the task thing was the swansong but man lawler on TV continues days and it happens at the right to censor angle for no way out in February. Two thousand one. This is right at the end of. WCW maybe a month prior stevie Richards is GonNa Pin Jerry lawler and the steps were if lawler wins can't gets the Strip and if Richards wins can't has to join the ROTC of course afterwards RTC capital burlap sack and takes her away star and a half but but that's not the big news the big news later that same month. Stacy Carter is released by the company. Think it happens. On February twenty seventh meltzer author would say which was strange because right in the middle of an angle where they're doing with her being kidnapped and upon hearing the news lawler quit the company in protest according to the reports lawler without the production meeting going over the show until two pm that afternoon then laughed and when he came back at four Ross told in the hand to release Carter Lawlor said he told her awesome man that if she was let go he would quit and they didn't change their decision and he left so this has been one of the biggest stories of lawler's career. You were there ray. Close to the situation in a bad spot as both your job. In in your friend or SORTA all intertwined here. When do you remember about this bad? They in February. Well here's the thing about it and I maybe somebody. They are sometimes had relationships with the guys on the talent roster that were unhealthy. Because he's too close to some of them. I'll take my chances on that. Quite frankly frankly in in those that may have a point to some degree. But I'll take my chances on that deal saying this. I had of Austin and and other guys. There's a lot aww that I have great personal relationships with but you know Jerry and stacy. I just thought that they were great couple. John and I went to their wedding reading and In Las Vegas that I think Charles Barkley actually paid for their wedding so Charles Big frontier came back in those days. Listen we had dinner with Charles jeter Phoenix raw and their their wedding came up conversation Charles Volunteer to pay for the wedding. And of course Jerry. Right I've got a couple of bucks or so. We were friends with them on a personal level outside wrestling so the the issue was is that as I remember it because I had never had one person come to me and say man. Jr You you gotTa Talk to Stacey. She's just busting our balls just you can't. You can't work with her and she does a better way to everything and she's she's got a little taste of the the spotlight now. She's just curious should be carried away by thing whatever nothing just came out of out of the blue said you know getting I'm getting too Minnie. I'm getting too many complaints about stacy and I'm not going to tolerate it and I want you let her go today. What boom as that quick? So I didn't have any I try. I tried to discussing it. I did I did discuss. But basically some the producers riders riders. Whatever there there's I think they were the culprit in this matter costs for whatever reason? She was challenging their authority or their decision making or the creativity or whatever anyway. That was the reason I was given and so That's what we do that and I told you I I feel bad about this deal. I don't agree with the decision. I don't I didn't agree with that. I don't agree with it now. That's the marching orders. I got from the headquarters. So so what are your soldier. You follow your down orders. You take the guy's money do what he says. So I did and I told Jason you know. Maybe you want to tell her. I'll tell Zeller. Don't get me wrong but maybe it comes easier from you. I don't know I wanNA make this as easy for both of us. I can't tell you how I can help do that so I think he told her in As I recall so that's kind of how that deal work and I I I thought he might want to take a few days off to show support for her. But I didn't know he's going to quit altogether and it would've pervasive with Matt Anyway. You know I think. Part of the insofar thing farther the head the NI- and decided you know if he bolts he bolts. So that's where we are. So that's that's kind of how that deal went down. It was a bad day hours. I think the world stationed today day. She's a she's got a lot of stuff with rescue animals and she got a hair salon or a spa type thing in Dallas Carter. Hair Stacy Carter so she does a good job in our post wrestling live. She separate herself from it to her own benefit on mentally ill I think but she never desert desert get canned and muggy and I'm again maybe over biased. Maybe wrong right. Always thought that she got a raw deal net thing. Nobody can argue that He's in a bad spot. And unfortunately the relationship doesn't Work Out Eventually That marriage what would come to an end. What can you tell us about his relationship with? Stacy we haven't talked a lot about stacy on this show show but she's a big part of his life here for a while and you were there for the beginning the middle and the end your thank. You know the story goes is that it Stacy's mother was maybe dating a member of Jerry Softball team. And so then Stacey you see the young teenage daughter guess in seventeen eighteen years old and that neighborhood would come for their mom to softball games. And of course. The king has that the great trade-off talent and they they connected in started seeing each other and one thing led to the next and then she's living with him and all of a sudden you know. She's living with you when I met him and then she's And that's like I said we went to the wedding in Vegas. I thought that she knew stacy at that. Time was the perfect mate for Jerry. She was she was younger. We like that. She was beautiful At a lot of lot of sexuality she was wonderful laugh and they both lock to laugh and they'd in the movies and do things that they they say they have a lot of common ground in so I really believe man. This is one of those wrestling relationships. This going to be going to be a long time. You know it's everlasting well. Unfortunately like so many wrestling relationships they go south for whatever reason and sometimes those reasons for going south is that the the the the the other person away in marriage I should say WanNa be the on. TV THEY WANNA be fame's they WANNA make more money and make some money and so all sudden she's being used in Memphis a little bit as a TV character inter playing herself basically and then you got all of a sudden. She's come Jerry TV. She's got those beautiful Blue Eyes. She's adorable she's smart to the the business and so all of a sudden you know we're she fit the bill for all the the sexiness and the and the the look and all that stuff For the those Davis at that time or we're doing so it was just I thought it was a magical deal and I and I just thought they were a great couple apple together. It just you know time goes on people grew apart as they say. And I remember Stacey I think next girlfriend was sitting at ringside in Providence. It's at a show rall in her may con again. I said we're supposed to be a God damn it. I don't know what the hell he is be locked on and all of a sudden everyone's security guys have exchanged numbers the next thing. I know the girl that was sitting ringside in Providence. At raw is living with so you don't let grass runners feet as I say on the show sometimes are tomorrow's aren't guaranteed Conrad so the king was not burning any daylight so I thought he's stationed perfect. I really did. I thought they're a great couple. And one of those deals man just at the end of the day the relationship dissolved and it's too bad. They were my favorite restaurant couples. Quite frankly and at that time thanks change I get it thanks have changed but And now he's he's he's he's he's saying Lauren and they're they're happy seeming to me and You know she lawrence story thirty thirty one and you just had a birthday this week Good kid big sports fan. And he's Jerry His saying that wheelhouse Jerry can beat this kid. He didn't have the time. It takes time to be to his other sons. I think that's great. So he's just that he's he he I think Jerry's the biggest issue of the women is this. He's like me a lot of ways. We don't WanNa be alone and I saw or J. Lo poor. Jr My fat ass. I get that books but as a human being. You won't companionship and I think Jerry's probably really in that world because he's here in Oklahoma Steak Loki terrorists involved in all kinds of stuff thing he did on the College Game Day of the day was great for him driving his mobile down or having this is a I think that was actually lawrence father driving that car. So he's got a different lifestyle Conrad and he's a different cat. I tell you that sometimes this a official hotel. What's it like to work with the king? Well he's brilliant. You stay with your toes but sometimes it's like work Larry Flint. They'll Hustler magazine. He's just he. He is insatiable desire to be social. And I find that quality alone so we'll keep him alive for a long time to come. We mentioned that Relationship would end the relationship with WB ends February very twenty-seventh and then Stacey decides to move on in I July so during that Louis stretch their march April may June. Jerry is quite busy. Makes some appearances on the radio show really stirs things out perverse. Richard and Stephanie McMahon is really taken to his website getting up to sixty thousand heads today there is telling his story keeping you know in front of fans and he's even posting email addresses yourself from Bruce Prichard nother say hey if you wish salon. TV Let these people know and supposedly one of the unintended consequences. It's a quences is some of those fans you some not so nice things. Yeah what was it. I don't remember that well. During the time he was on. Hey you know that's go for it. Yeah I think he was saying. Hey if you want me to be back on. TV Let the let these folks know and it's a questionable decision to Staley's but either way not too long. After the whole camp thing comes to head in real life. He gets a call. Would you be interested in coming back. And and one of the suggestions that's made is maybe. He should call Bruce Richard and try to mend fences because he was not very polite to bruce on on the man cash show and then of course once he comes back to Raw in in Nashville and Memphis. It gets a call for me that says. Hey y'all come by. Everybody loved to see they miss you and he comes in and it probably just feels like he was never gone right. Yeah not at all it was. He's just he's absent for a few days it seemingly. He was never not a part of the team at least.

"Dreamer What do you remember about La- lawler telling you his experience with all the CCW stuff was because this is something that you know fans fans who were watching at the time really believed in you know I thought okay? Well this is whatever whatever but man lawler really hates these guys and they really hate eight lawler at some of that is because the w hardcore were so behind Paul Heyman Man Jerry. LAWLER had white hot heat to that audience. Yeah Yeah big time. The real organic legitimate heat is it reminds me a little bit of lawler's vollers resistance to e C. W was I think more to fold first of all. I don't think it had. He had any grudges against their your talents because I doubt very seriously all due respect that he had a relationship with hardly any town on the roster other than the occasional Terry funk coming in or whatever like that a but the presentation of pro wrestling much like it has been the last couple years it continues to evolve. And I think that's what lawler was resisting at that time. You know publicly the you know this is a joke. It's it's it's it is crappy and it's all chairs ears and tables and floors lights always other things. There's not wrestling stunt show using gimmicks. So he he sold all that that was his that was his platform. And of course we were up in the face of the the diehard fans at cw that helmeted amazing job of manipulating and leading to where he wanted to go. So I I liked. I liked the fact that That we did that angle. I think it added freshness to what we're doing. It expose really good deserving talents more of a platform to do their thing and I took that as an opportunity to get to know some of these cats and then I hired him a lot of them and because they were ready they were hungry and they paid their dues for Damn share and They needed to make some cash. And so we were there and we provide that opportunity so I think that Lawlor lawlor stood for everything that you see. Wfan base and their brand did not. He was the old guard establishment and they want the new new innovations new things going on. Maybe less selling maybe more sensationalistic spots and some spots that they were doing that should have in in all reality. Ben Finishes High Spots and some old school guys thought that was not the way to disturb the vote. So he I just. Here's the as a wrestling fan. Those are some of the most fun shows those ABC www shows pay per use. That I think I never got to be a part of any because Joey styles deal and which I fully applaud the love jobs work and still do but it's fun to watch as a fan just fun to watch and one of the reasons are going to watch. She had. He'll God like you said Conrad White-hot do we have any heels. Are White hot today. Now I'll tell you this is gonNA sound really self-serve he's kissing. Tony Kahn says Chris Jericho's far the best. He'll restaurant now well Kurt. He's probably the most over baby face for sure I mean. They've told some great stories with with Jericho. In with cody in terms of making one very very hated. And even though he's still funny and I know how you feel about that. But cody the most sympathetic baby face in the game right now. Yeah not clarify. I five one thing here Conrad about the funny thing. Here's what I'm saying. Folks I am not. I love comedy I love to laugh. I love to make people laugh aloud to have fun. I really truly do SORTA got but I find it challenging to try to incorporate comedy at the wrong time so when you got the audience and upon your hand and you're leading it exactly where you want to go as an antagonised. It's hard to be. It's hard to dislike antagonise enough earth is he or she is making me laugh more often than not so. If the comedy is a sidebar. The comedy is an add on an addendum. I'm cool with that but when when we try to ride it into show over script it so you got you got. We're thirty seconds in comedy. Slot are a bit then. I'm going to do my thing and then we'll go close my promo. I'M GONNA another comedy line or two then if you're entertaining -taining me. Why shall not like not like you if you're making me laugh and you pleasure and what you're saying is funny and entertaining? What is the reason that I should dislike you as a villain as hard? It's hard to differentiate so that's kind of what I was thinking about with that deal. The Lord's really good at Lowe's great at that because he knew timing out an do crowd psychology. But it's a very delicate line that you walk but I think jerk right now is the best wrestling bill pro wrestling villain in the business. That's just yawned biased. I work as much as every week that he wrestles and I have respect for him but I am by someone admit it but I do think if he's not the best you get a fruit amis better something. Lawler was not the best outlets hitting dudes and the ball sack ZAC. Canes should mention that on the way to this big match with Tommy Dreamer he has a another one of these appearances at the arena. That's a surprise. You Take San man's cane gene wax Tommy between the legs hearing shot. The pain is so excruciating. Tommy actually passes out for a moment. After the show he has to have one of his testicles holes drain because it's swollen up something serious but of course Tommy gets his revenge at hardcore hardcore homecoming the second pay per view for macy W and then essentially sleep in the SEC. WWe Feud But there is going to be a feud in the courtroom a brewing Allegedly there is a lawsuit involved against Jerry lawler and his partner Larry Burton Bay and it's coming from Mark Selker. Who is somebody who was trying to to buy out the US WMA? This is going to be a mess based on what the guys thought. They were buying what they actually bought. And this is always. He's sort of stuck out as I duNno exhibit of why buying a territory you know guys were buying territories in the eighties. was maybe a little bit of Fool's gold. What say you big time fools? Go a big time. What are you buying a tape library and Dan? How haphazard many of these territories were with their inventory their tape by Berry how they accounted for all the authenticity of the intellectual Atlanta property? You know do you really own this or is there are free and clear. Had the talents that appeared on here signed off. You know all these fierce it was a it was not a well. Run cost a lot of those guys. Those big ego promoters stuff never thought they're going to go out of business so they didn't they didn't prepare for it. You know if you if you haven't had cowboy did Paul Bosch. Did I think that the von Erich all school people and as you went along than farther on the other it didn't it didn't it didn't resonate so I thought it was a fool's gold deal because I don't know you're buying other than that libraries lavery offer free and clear has been catalogued has been organized on new. Most of those answers. Probably not quite honestly so. I thought that the guy was Author author guy was a fool's gold as as a nice polite way of putting it. Of course the next big thing all is going to be involved in the story line with how snow. Oh who's coming home from his stint with W and eventually as you know he's got the head with him son Brian. Christopher is going to get a bottle title of head and shoulders shampoo and stick it with the head and then pennant because the head doesn't have shoulders he needed head and shoulders elders. They're not fish. Yeah Yeah so that comedy you were talking about earlier here. It is again in nineteen ninety nine big year for Jerry lawler. The the movie Man on the moon comes out. There's even a couple of great documentaries about this. Of course the story of Andy Kaufman. Lawler was famous for having a tremendous interaction action and feud with him in the early eighties including a real special hit on David Letterman. Show that people are still talking about. This is way before things went viral. But if going viral was a thing that would have been thing back this talked a little bit about his experience on on on working with Jim Carey Making this movie. Man on the moon well lawler got approval for this to be a part of but you know so he could missing things we had to and then a radically Larry Burton was a big part of that process. I'm not so sure how much he I think he basically did lawler's deal and because to make the the handy confidence story. Manda Moon starring. Jim Carey you need to Jerry Jerry. Lawler key poured so jerry a a got the role and then they needed to hire some other folks. And so they got Lance Russell. And I thought well lance is going to be. That'd be great you know 'cause it was his role he was the guy and then they hired me. Thanks Larry Burton and I got lassus. Lance was the ring announcer in the movie. He was also the ring announcer more often than not in Memphis to call them. During that era any also did play by play. So I did the play by play and an and and and last of the ring announcing but we spent three or four glorious days now. La Otherwise Great Ho hospitality and in a Burton had this deal. I never understood. It was always kind of his scratcher with a Morton's steakhouses and he was treated like a King Morton. Morten get in any more than you want to go to. There's no wait for him. It was just a S. We've made it so I don't know what he had all kinds of daily with Morton's but it was really unique but Larry was a little bit shady in my view is one of those guys would talk a mile a minute. Not Looking I and Conrad we both have met a lot of people wrestling that way. You know they ain't GonNa gain contact because they know they know you know they're lying to your ass so Larry was a comedy hustler. Entrepreneurial kind of guy and I never really trusted quite frankly. He was likable enough to be around at times but he was just there too many unanswered questions about his background. You know two or three different names you know. I used to kid him about all the time. Now what's your name today are you. Larry Burt Murray Bergman Blurry or three daily basis so as I recall so he he was a different cat. But he's the one that got that movie deal. And I wa- meals formerly was the directories and Oscar winner. Amazing Amazing Amazing I learned so much on that. Set watching those guys work and Saga my little role than meals. Like my work enough that he brought me back for the following week week for those scenes that I shot where I was on camera doing commentary and there's like thirty people there so there's a look still backing the Olympic auditorium but we are a little sound the studio so I got a nice little thing that went to the with. The New York Premiere with Jerry Seinfeld much of other people. My wife loved I do too. I'm not discounting but then they had the big premiere in La. The BIG MAC Daddy Premier Jan Chan had to represent the fan because administered. Let me off work because Jerry was gonna go see can let us both Rosso. I stayed back at work and everybody everybody else went to the premier L. A.. Jerry's I think as stacy's that todd an agenda buddies and we went to their wedding over France so I missed dot going there but at least you know Jan got to go after the The movie situation is is in hand. And we've got at that under our belt we're going to have a bit of a feud with Tass service seems to come out of nowhere in the summer of two thousand. He's going to become. Oh baby face I guess at this point has starting to bully you and Jerry is GonNa come to your aid. They actually have a mass summer slam. Two thousand.

"You know without going into all the detail about the the booze and all other illegal drugs or being ingested allegedly by Jake. I didn't think it was the greatest thing in the world there because it it did. I don't think that anybody had any long term plans to have a happy ending. So you're telling his cart breaking story this guy that said you know I've been a troubled home is entire alive how is raise etc so unique. I did an interview with him that I don't know I never saw it. But it was a video where he and I got got down to the nitty gritty talking about his family and how he was raised in has a pair the parenting that he encountered. And I thought I don't know how that made the edit boys some compelling Shit I can tell you that right now but I thought we focused on the wrong thing you know I think like we can tell that story a lot of different ways and that was not the best way to kick some by other down that regard. He has some issues. He well L. documented and you know Dallas pays jake a lot along the way. We're all aware that Jake's had struggles many of our friends Mir the greats have had the troubles whether you'd be in Hollywood or on a football field or wherever the great sometimes fall from grace and they have trouble adjusting so but I see he's doing well now. He's on the road what he's doing shows. I've seen good reviews for them the QNA's stage shows. He does he's funny. He's got great stories but this was not one of his great stories or with lawler. Let's talk about with lawler's doing next a unfortunately he's GonNa have to work with a greenhorn named Mark Henry now of course Martinez Martinis going to go on to be a hall of Famer. No doubt and a major contributor but here he is at the very beginning of his career. September Timber Nineteen ninety-six. In Your House. Mind Games it's SORTA is what it is a meltzer would say at this point. Henry seems a lot closer to bill caz Mar Ken Patera of course after the match. And we've recently talked about this. Leave Cassidy Mardi Jannati in a young hunter hearst. Helmsley where I'll jump on Henry Cleans House on all of them and then he throws triple h over the top rope. On both the rockers. A method was a high on it and said Henry showed nothing. Of course we know that mark injury sort of growing up and before is Ezra performer. But if you'RE GONNA try to get over a young talent who better than Jerry. The King Lawler Murray. Nobody nobody the other thing too is that I don't think is as I recall. Look Back Conrad that Lawler marc-andre total strangers. I WanNA thank we sent. I signed Mark Henry and I think we sent him to He. He got some Memphis time he we he mark was an amazing. I went to bat for him. Big Time I still would've just very day. He's a lovable. Big Bastard and I think the world of him. Except he's just too Goddamn the Texas Longhorn Fan that makes me about once a year but nonetheless. Y Digress but they were familiar with each other. You want somebody. That's going to the understands Dan their role. We know the rock made that that cliche money know your role. Lawler News role is ROE is to get out of there. Alive live to protect mark injury not take marketing in a row that he had never traveled on before and only do things market do and the at that time they were limited. There's strongman Stub. It didn't have a lot of crowd psychology but he had net natural charisma did mark so it was good booking in that regard. I don't like you know I respect meltzer immensely and a half for thirty plus years but to say and I didn't read the whole sentence but say that you know mark showed nothing Or had nothing or whatever you know again. He's a rookie or you should really really young in his career and it took a while mark to find his place is stride. And that's why you never give up on talents folks. If they have a great attitude they show up for work with her mind right but they're just not quite clicking. They're not have not connected. You can't shit on them. You can't turn them out faster because we have as a system awesome done a good enough job a facilitating the learning curve of this individual. I think that mark got more out of going to work with He works all the talk taught top. Tom Prichard else. No Leo Burke. Mark had a lot of really good instructors because we were not going to give up on him even even though. I had talents going to all the time. Say Man that market is going to make our house. Who would you see any well stay tuned and luckily You know he had. He was world champion. He's a hall of fame. He's still doing great work. Only you hear him a busted open radio with our friends there they league-record and the crew. He's GonNa do the Saturday show. So Mark Henry has evolved into a real player in the world of pro wrestling but that would never have happened if we didn't have the belief in him and his heart art. He's going to do a good job and knowing that we needed to protect him. who better to protect mark? Green Mark Henry than the Great Hall of fame veteran. Jerry lawler no oh body if you needed somebody to look good you call Jerry lawler and if you're trying to look good and feel good. Well I've got some news for you. Have you ever wondered why so many Americans unhealthy sick and overweight between the food supply and the sedentary lifestyle. Americans are in worse shape than ever..

The mixture bill better in in a variety of ways can send up good things about CBD MD.. Hey let me ask you about Jerry lawler here once. These charges are dismissed. Is this just a a huge relief to him. What's your relationship like with him? And now I know now now you guys are best to France not the case here in ninety three or or just business acquaintances. At this point I think business acquaintances probably a better way to describe it. You know we the only time when we met as I mentioned earlier is in mid eighties. There shrieked work Other than the meal reading about Jerry and after Mags I was and then no one talents. That had worked in Memphis. If you're a star in your book in Memphis at some point you did work with the King Liotta dip. Because that's the way you're going to make the most money. Because was he was most over but I think we were just basically a business partners. We had a lot. We did realize early on in our when we started working together that we had Tremendous amount things in common that we could build on. We did and we have in. That friendship has lasted all these years. And that's that's rare in the wrestling business quite frankly because it's such a Paranoid Laden insecure world more often than not because the most powerful weapon wrestling's we all know folks is the pencil because got are actually that back the most powerful weapon and all the rest and Conrad is is the eraser and so you're one eraser swipe away from being eliminated from the main event slaughter wherever you want where whatever you're shooting for for so but we found out. We had a whole lot of good things in common. And and we built on those but as I was about to say you just don't have that many lasting friendships. Yes in the wrestling business. One this lasted you know thirty plus years. Let's talk about when he comes back. You know the charges are dropped He's in the clear. Bents McMahon knows that but still keeps him off. TV for what feels like several months. He doesn't actually come back Until Wrestlemania Tin is here doing commentary with vents. And a few months later we see lawler start a bit of a feud with Roddy Piper. We know that that's GonNa Anna Culminate in maybe not the best paper of Umass lawler ever had but something interesting along the way. Here's the new king's Court with a kid who does a Piper Imitation. Do you remember hearing how this came to be. Was it the kid from Canada allegedly he Sent in a tape and eh for for WWF Mania and the office saw it loved it and they paid one thousand dollars to come in. And you know work out the act with Jerry lawler. And it's not it's not Jason Sensation if that's okay you're thinking so no I don't remember I I remember they US doing something along those lines because all of a sudden you got Piper and lawler potentially in a in a program and and how much better could it get. I mean you're not looking for hurricane. Rana's mismatch looking for drama and crowd psychology. And and and bringing me to the dance. A Alluring the end with their promos in both lawler and Piper. I guess we could all agree to some level that there are two of the very best talkers. There's ever in wrestling so why not put them together. Same area of same skill sets same age basic age groups so forth. So Yeah Yeah. I think that that was a good looking but I think Vince has just very cautious. About what the media would say if there was not a little bit more of a Sabbatical Baticle Lisa Po. TV Sabbatical for for Jerry. After all the bad publicity that was created for him in those those legal matters you mentioned so this cautiousness I think more or less from mass vis always loved. Jerry's work and he still does apparently and he says he should But you know I know one thing I I took more asked you for jury than for any other human being alive because inside my headset. So God what's wrong with the okay. Sorry about Jr sat there. You know what the hell were. You should jump up. Start doing jumping. Jacks what are what are we doing stretching so distressing events. I don't know what you want. But he'd never got lawler shit and I'll never does. There's always others out there that could take the wrath and It's ice I used to. I used to tell him that during a commercial. Break headsets off. Well I just got to ask you again just so no. He Laugh Giggle. So this is one of those deals but we had a lot of fun together in that regard. 'cause we have so many things in common that we didn't always talk about wrestling didn't always have talked about so that we have Mitchell interest and always you know Bro Music to food sports to women. There's a lot of things that we chatted about on our road trips. Are we were hanging out together. So he's just like having. I have a brother you find out you know you have this brother. You didn't know you had. And then all of a sudden find out what's his brother's interests are. Ironically the Mir some of your own interest. I kind of. That's kind of how I looked at my situation. Jerry Lewis Years. Well you talked about taking some shit. Jerry took some shifts king. The ring ninety four goes down June nineteenth anthem Baltimore Tim and Roddy Piper for twelve and a half minutes piper gets the win and a one star match. It's just it's a miss and it's on last and when you think of I mean this is not lawler's finest hour in the ring especially with WBZ. You agree no it. That whole show was a train wreck. That's show that Art Donovan. The Great Former defense attack. The Baltimore. Colts was on the broadcasting with the monsoon in a piper. Our season savage some of the funniest natural television that I ever saw I was watching that show. And when they do the occasional on camera or the sitting ringside will be shot at a background shot and and you can see the facial expressions the paned real facial expressions on the face of monsoon and savage. It was priceless as Louis. And I remember watching it. I was in Atlanta. China are leaving Atlanta Point. In time I was wondering must've battles house back down to Atlanta and I laughed cried and Because it was just that bad some thinking they're gonNa call me back I guarantee you. They're gonNA call me back. She and I even talked about that a little bit. You know as well the phone cast bullshit. Well it's GonNa rain tomorrow hunting. Yes Sir and sure enough. It did so it was just a it was a train wreck so I don't I didn't remember the lawler. I had forgotten about a lot of Piper Ramesh honestly a lot of hope that yeah E. blocked it out and but what I do remember was again the the field the show the commentary where you have have a guy out there that doesn't have any product knowledge are Donald's known as one of the great storyteller of football stories ever but he was not a wrestling fan. Yeah and you could tell the first since he made. WHO's this guy boy? He's big you know that kind of stuff that causes off fans that paid their hard earned money to watch it on pay per view so oh that was quickly eradicated. Now I remember talking. I didn't talk to savage much because I would get along that well but monsoon giving chapter in person that you'll have a uh as the boys to say an abortion. It was so yeah I remember that but I don't remember that match so maybe it's a good thing right. Yeah I wish I could forget you. You know his survivor series. Ninety four match. He missed ninety three where some legal troubles. He's back here in ninety four for survivor series. This time he's teaming with Well some little papal easy sleazy and cheesy. And they're gonNA take on. Clowns are US withdrawing Dank wink and pink yeah negative two and a half stars as what the Observer I guess this is sort of old school a little person match. This is sort of the beginning. If you you weren't already aware of the comedy wrestling that lawless in do yeah you're right that's that was the that was the intro to that. That was that was. You'll appetizer to the the funny Jerry lawler wrestled mode and it was. It was pretty is pretty weak but in there it was sixteen minutes. That's about twice as long as it needed to go. Sure but I I thought this the queasy sleazy and cheesy all all kind of a comfortable. He little names no pun intended beat the the Clowns Joint Dink wink and pink funny stuff breath so you kind of got all the casting says situated in the naming of the teams but it wasn't a it was what it was supposed to be a little comedy. Let me up in the middle of serious card. He works with bread at the very first in your house but really it's not to have a full blown. Classic Lawler Hart Bats. It's the sort of ease bre into an angle with Hakujushi And then after that he's doing some enhancement stuff here there but the big match king of the ring. Ninety five is a kiss my foot math you referenced. Earlier with Bret the Hitman Hart Non Minutes and twenty seconds two and three quarter stars You know in hindsight insight. I'm sure some people watch this for the first time and think it's a little silly And and the silliness has not done here. I mean we're going to pivot straight out of this us into Jerry having to go visit his dentist because Brett's feet were so bad now they've they've damaged his teeth. He's gotta go see Isaac Yank Them. DDS Man you know. I know it's easy for for fans on social media online. Just tear park creative now but God damn it's not like they were hitting home runs and ninety five here. No it's all subjective. Ninety five was a crucial Russia year. We were going through transitions at three in here that you got Brett. Who needs to be an all the top programs but then he got another level that do you you really want older? Guys occupied that swats at the top. Probably not in theory the older guys being like Roddy and the king and other and the others we go back and research it that were had their best years behind them more than they had a frontal athletically speaking their age and so forth injuries. Wear and tear but man You know that's what we're trying. That's what the company is trying to do at that time and pointing that out. Help me get my relationship Gig Gig we gotta get younger. We're going down the vine here. We can't keep rehabbing a rehabbing. Can't keep repackaging guys like the bulldog up. nope very good. But I mean how many reincarnations he's the bulldog here's the British fucking bulldog that good enough and then you got piper. Earn the broncos there for a while we had a lot of great historic hall of fame level. Is that you want to be on your team. You just don't want them all playing starting quarterback your your tailback or what you want you want to give this the spotlight positions as best you can to some younger guys have more years years ahead of them to to monetize your investment. But I think that's where we weren't at transitional period and there was a lot of thought shit against the wall to see what's going to stick there in the mid nineties. Let's talk about another innovation. Jerry has around. This time was probably nineteen ninety-five whatever he's wrestling enhancement talent. He would actually bring a Mike to the ring with him and just talk trash the hallway to the ring. I'm going to tell you this Made me a big fan of Jerry. The King lawler and I think you really got to show show off. You know his Mike's Heels. In a unique way it added a great a great another layer. I was a big Fan. Would you think of of this. And whose idea was it to the best last year knowledge. It was Jerry's Vincent I'm guessing there may be somebody else is that how creative goes Conrad issue. You know now all these this amazing podcasts you you host every week every day of the week except Saturday and Sunday. That's come on here but nonetheless it started to get a little bit old for me but in the beginning when it was new and fresh like many things in pro wrestling it worked And I thought Jerry did you know. Pulled it off He didn't he didn't miss a beat sometimes and instead of just doing random sound bites his his his in ring stuff during these matches which is the more entertainment side of pro wrestling than it is the actual physical combat side. Obviously 'cause you're not gonNA get into fight with somebody supposed to be good and have a mike in your hand wants to restrict your striking ability and also as a you know awkward but Jerry Hill Job and I. It sounds like it was an old school lawler. This what about this this Ah Bruce less now do and kidding but then they mutually agreed and they tried it so it was..

"If you're good enough and you can you can create new money. Great Sell tickets or whatever you're you're measuring stick is for monetary success and Jerry was just a proven commodity at that at that stage and the early nineties He had he had proven that he could work with anybody of varying skill sets. He works face. It can work as A. He'll I think you know the fact that you came from broadcast accidental anyway. Because that's not why he was brought brought in to wwf at that time has to be a wrestler and which made it very very happy. So yeah I think it was a natural thing. I don't feel it being allow those old wounds man. Look at how many guys have got wounds and W now had an issue here they. They had an issue beers ago or two years ago. Or whatever sometimes man the Almighty dollar the chance for stardom that a big footprint or let's global is too much to overcome and I'm not saying that was the only case Jerry because Jerry has one primary motivator later money and there was money and more money at WWF at that time than anywhere else could've gone. Let's talk a little bit about when he he comes in. You mentioned that. He has brought in a wrestler. Eventually events talk him into doing some commentary. One of the stops along the way to create the king's Court which the never be F- I guess it made famous Maybe ten years prior with Piper's pit and so they're always looking for you know the next thing whether it's the funeral parlor or the barber shop or whatever King's court is going to be what they do for Jerry but it's not all smooth sailing for Jerry because Jerry's former promoter and You know sometimes. The Boys Aren't always in love with the promoter so apparently according to the rumor and Innuendo first week or two in somebody takes us shit shitting Crown Sacramento are. That's before I got there. I heard the story classless. That's that's a a bodily function seem to be fun thing to talk about wrestling at some point or some people joke skits vignettes Bali functions auctions. It's bizarre almost a disturbing way that some people in wrestling. How this affinity for creating a These bodily function angles storylines piece of business. Whatever and somebody thought it'd be really funny that take a dump and cherries various crown while he was away from his way from it? You know it's the locker room so one of the boys you know. There's a lot of rumors who it was. I have no idea what to point a finger. Somebody that was innocent isn't but it is uncalled for and I you know but that's the deal you know. Somebody's got to pay off. You know five years ago or the they didn't get their push five. The great thing about one of the significant things about rushing. It doesn't change. Folks is the son Bitches I love. Don't get me wrong. I'm I'm in a group. I'm on their team. Sometimes we don't like to look in the mirror when things don't go our way you know. I write a bill of finishing just finished on Wednesday. The Black Hat our next book continuation of my autobiography. And I figured out. Conrad GODDAMN PROBLEM TO DEAL The Times challenging. Because I was headstrong and stubborn and set in my ways and didn't want to didn't want to compromise a lot of times and entrust issues. There's a lot of things there so I picked up all the great habits along the way that other restaurants had already had acquired those you know on the guy that can roll a joint. I want a car with his knees. That's really bad. That's a very marketable skill by the way books nowadays. But that's the whole thing I it's just a we. You gotta look in the mirror more often and sometimes that's not the case but nonetheless that happened but he didn't he didn't waiver. I mean a lot of us out of here. I'm done that's it but but he didn't do that and I just feel badly for whoever did because I'll say this. They kept it a well kept secret as to who the guilty party was and I. I wish I had worked in Memphis at one time that was in that locker room that night. That didn't like a payoff or a creative direction is said. Let's talk talk a little bit about One thousand nine hundred ninety three Not Too terribly long after you come into the company you're going to be calling wrestlemainia nine Jerry. lawler is not a part of that broadcast later in the year. Jerry's GonNa have some legal troubles. Ultimately he would come out victorious on the other side of that. All that's been beat up to death if you'd like to hear more about it. We did a something to wrestle with. Bruce prichard where we did a bit of a deep dive on it but it is fascinating to think that because the time line to me just never made sense. I guess it's true. You technically could have done wrestlemania non with Jerry the king lawler instead you do it with Bobby. The Brain Heenan and the Macho Gotcha man. Was it ever discussed you. Wrestlemainia non as far as you know no no use. At that time. He was started coming in as as a in in ring. Talent as I recall as I remember a better save perhaps the only reason the reason Jerry got on raw aw was called. Savage walked and one of those classic deals with you know. They're gone until they're gone type. Deal and you know separate fuse arresting and the distrust and paranoia and all the normal bullshit And so when they realized that savage was not going to be the at the taping thing that night on site it was suggested that lawler do it. Might Have Been Bruce. Did it but everybody everybody anybody round round Jerry that had watched any amount of territorial. TV that had a local syndicated television. It's not a national overlay. A new. How good a talker? He was and that any that in any environment he was going to excel. You know he's he's like a lot of guys he's got that driving force that he doesn't WanNa be the the the joke of the card or you know he wants to suck stone. Coal used to be going last. He was pissed off. And so I'm not saying that about Jerry. Jerry was very proud proud guy that knew he could still work as well as anybody in the company at that time. And I'M NOT GONNA disagree with that at all but I think that's that was. The deal sat that was walked. Vince got a recommendation. And all of a sudden lawler is work of McMahon. And and it was seamless. It just it was from day it was good. Of course savage leaves at the end the night four But the thing that I think everybody wants to talk about is his feud with Bret. Hart I think his feud with Bret Hart on TV as probably his most significant wrestling feud or angle or whatever within the confines of WWe. Of course you know happens after Brab King Ring in nineteen ninety-three that's a natural zero feud for the real king of wrestling Jerry. The King lawler and The the big kiss my foot match ACILIA. Some of this sounds. This was a pretty good stuff in nineteen ninety three. Do you think this is his best work within the company or at least most notable. Oh yeah most noble by far because he's working with a World Class Athlete Fleet and Bret Hart and again we missed this show and others have picked up on twitter. A Hey hey has contractor you at JRS BBQ from me On Twitter Brett. I don't remember seeing Bret Hart ever in a bad match. Then you add someone with a skill set and the second La Psychological Abilities that lawler headed telling a story that matched breasts. No doubt about that. You guys are totally on on the same page but the most important thing about that was that it was a personal issue. There was something personal at stake. They had said or done that. Created this union between the good guy the bad guy and it was a clear enough deal where you're insulting someone's parents that's that's the one thing we can all say. Everybody's got carrots yet. Have a mom and dad to get here so some shape fashion we all got parents who can all benefit by some of that stuff. Most normal people can certainly but that was the deal there we could get. We understand. It was personal and lawler was a great at stern of pot and the creating that angst. So Yeah I think it was the best thing that they had done and I know he. He complained molly complain one time. I thought thought he's going to break. His legs sticking told us now but it was an old school wrestling. Angle ole school territorial stipulation. Kiss my foot the loser's GonNa kiss the other guys. But I did a verse that Michael Cole. It was a stipulation but I had to kiss his feet and they had made need to have Like this eth- Eth- Athlete's foot and all this other fungus shit on it so funny though and humor so important arrested Conrad Goddamn. I'm at the only reason I watched wrestling has got a good belly laugh. For God's sakes why else would you watch pro wrestling. Today's market being fucking facetious here. But but that was a deal is a personal issue everybody get it and lawler executed a plan to a t and Brit showed the exact amount realistic outrage and. Let's not forget. Go Student Helen. They were there to were their outrage. And and that helped build the angle as well so so it was all the stars align all good performers in a row and it was real and so. I thought that you're right. I Jerry did a lot of things. And and enforcing horsing remember his angle Iressa male coal. That's the only time I got wrestle. wrestlemanias that a Gimme mashed announcer and that. That's I think that's been kind of a letdown. Tori let me so in any event the red heart stuff but you can't give credit 'cause he's just it. During that period he was on and Jerry realized he was hot he was on and Jerry was smart and know that I took my my trader. This wagon right now and we're GONNA kick some ass and they did we should mention that It all comes to head for Jerry with some of his legal problems around survivor series. Nineteen ninety-three a supposed. I I have a bit of a a payoff for his brand HARF. You'd hear it's supposed to be the king's Court against the Hart family of course instead lawler dollar sidelined. They replaced with Shawn Michaels he has three ninth and those nights allegedly one of them was supposed to be Terry funk. We'll talk talk about that another time but it's a shame that we never got to see it. Pay Off exactly the way. We hoped But time marches on and for a lot of us us. That's not always a bad thing we've been talking a lot about. CBD On the show a lot lately particularly the premium THC FREE CBD products. They offer alright CBD MD DOT COM and. We really can't say enough about the quality. But I wanNA talk about something a little different today Jim. Conrad you're so you're very serious. Well we've touched on it before but I wanNA talk a little bit more about CBD MD's customer service and I don't know about you Jr.. But when I buy from the big online stores. It's kind of.

"And so says is a good holiday to have good memories. I watch the football. You know. Be Special people so I'm enjoying it so everybody else does too was celebrated or observant. Enjoy it you know. What the Hell is the best family holidays the entire year yeah faggot? Christmas and I grew up with dressing and my Go-to so you. This is a casserole season as you know moms go to Broccoli casserole and squash casserole does does have a favorite casserole around Thanksgiving well the old green being Castro's hard to supplant at least once a year. You know all the mushroom soup and grilled onions install that stuff but yeah. But I'm really intrigued by the the ones you miss your mom made I. I would be very invested in both those quite frankly. I think you'd be accident. We gotta get you down here for Thanksgiving sometime but of course you're you're on the road. An last night was the big A. W. Show. I think that's going to be a bit of a tradition there at sears centre. Could be wrong. Aw But What a cool you know men wrestling Thanksgiving just goes together? Like peanut butter and Jelly and people say that about you and our subject today. Jerry Jerry. The King Lawler and oddly enough Jiri actually beat you to the company. He comes in in nineteen ninety two. But you'd have never talked about this. You know through. Are Your days working in a territory system. Jerry lawler has been a a mover and shaker. Since at least the seventies was the first time you you had the opportunity to meet Jerry American person for the first Conrad at at a around eighty three or four ish watts flu in Jerry Jarrett and the king from Memphis to shreveport go to our TV and observe because there was a talent exchange in the making and that did happen and You know Lou The lawler and ensure a bitter battle bag with talent what we had what they can do set. Set your watch some just some you know the back and I remember that the bax was the fact that all of our are good looking guys or heels all big ugly guys or maybe faces out. That was an interesting. I remember having a discussion. Those guys but lawler came in would share it and then He said in for a match. So the first match the Jerry lawler not ever broadcast together was a mid south wrestling rematch. Then was taped and the Irish McNeil. Boys Club in Shreveport Do we know it was a one off. That's the first thing we admit I was aware of Jerry. Jerry was very smart about he. MARKETED HIMSELF IN IN MEMPHIS. You still live in the territory as long as he did and not be doing some things right especially promoting yourself and you're in the brand so jerry I had a it was fun during the call where they but I have been aware of him as I said started to say the after magazines so forth. He was very very good about. I'd say manipulating. But maybe that's a the word is applicable here but Encouraging the magazines to do stuff with him and I remember after big trouble. One time for I think he showed lawler. Caller had beaten Andre in Memphis. Our slammed him or something. I don't remember some controversial Jalen I know the. WWW office got very upset about that. So but lawler's always a great entrepreneur. He's still is talk to me a little bit about what his reputation in the business was because I think a lot of our younger listeners. Only we know of Jerry. The King lawler the commentator and sort of the comedy wrestler and the WWF. which you know? He's definitely had more comic relief in this. WBZ phase of his career. The than he did when he was the top guy in Memphis. And if he didn't live in that area or maybe you're not old enough to know you may only know him as a commentator commentator chat with everybody a little bit about who he was as an in ring performer in his heyday. Well I said this before in other Other other entities that people al Qaeda as we do let the when we just did not too long ago in Nashville with Tony Yourself People ask those questions and the one thing about lawler that I say. Is that if you if you look at all. The attributes that he brought to the table still brings to the table and a large degree. If you look at all the attributes that cheery possessed all the skill set. You'll be very hard pressed to find any wrestler that had more check more boxes in the king and check them not just a a fate pistol check with big sharpie check big bowl. He was a hell of baby face. I mean amazing. He was a hell of A. He'll believable understood. Crowd psychology to. Its utmost. Most agree he was he was an excellent promoter and the fact that they made money in that territory for many many years. If you only think about how that territory ended in his final days is not unlike the final days most any territory that had final days but the territory for many many years ears decades as a matter of fact was very successful and Jerry was a learned. A hell promoter there. We know that when he broke his leg or he had various ailments his his managerial abilities. Top talent is as good as anybody ever heard. Then he putting behind the MIC and a lot of research serves are obsessed with either gung of that that pre plan a cute line or to have the get themselves over more specifically and Jerry was never that way with me certainly. I don't recall that he we were working together. I think that's why our team works so well. If you look at all the things he did well Conrad. You're GONNA be hard pressed to find anybody that check more boxes with a bowl sharpie then Jerry lawler. He was that skill so for those that are younger than that. Only see him as you described so accurately as a comedy guy. Then you're you've missed the boat so that stuff from that Memphis territory or he. He was the booker. The top baby face or the top heel was amazing Shakespeare grape production as far as inbuilt of bill. Good psychology and he. He worked with some of the biggest stars in the history of pro wrestling and that came through Memphis at one time or other so his career career unfortunately for some it's been largely forgotten the the early part young baby face years the he'll turn Cetera et cetera dominating. His market that he grew up in. Dan has been largely forgotten but the good news is that it's accessible. W networks. got a bunch of stuff on YouTube. Obviously and then I'm sure sure Jerry's got stuff at his website that that would probably also lend you to be able to see all the things he's done. It's just incredible. I was lucky to have him with my partner. Nice telling this embarrassing. Sometimes you're the star of the day of Teen Pal. You're the Star on the point. Guard my jobs jobs. Get you the ball and shoot those threes. Get Hot roll it. And that's going to look at that deal. He was the star of the team. Put before me and because because it worked no because I'm a benevolent Nice Guy. Jr's Nice Guy Bullshit. I'm not that Nice guy but it worked egocentrically Conrad on read. I didn't want to be a part of a failure and the JR king combination was far from that. Yeah I mean it's still a do other people are talking about. Today is one of the most iconic duos goes and it's just fascinating to me that's just one piece of of Jerry lawler's contribution you know. We talked about his view. Maybe a comedy wrestler to younger fan in base. But I think as I get older I have more appreciation for all the Jerry lawler accomplished and the Mount Rushmore of wrestling discussion is talked about a lot and it feels was like they. Just go to the top guys in the history whether it's rock or stone cold Hulk Hogan Ric flair whoever but Jerry lawler belongs on a mountain somewhere. The likes of Bobby the brain Heenan. Because I don't think there was ever a job whether it was in front of the camera behind the scenes and behind the microphone in the ring. Jerry lawler didn't excel at. I haven't found that yet. I haven't found anything us. You know. He was a great traveling partner to you. Know for me but but you're right you know a more spur spur. More focused more oriented as far as careers concern. Yes he was like. I said if you have a guy that's a great baby fae sometimes. Sometimes there's a little drop-off trained on the transition from that guy being a baby face or and then becoming a villain and then there's another dropped ball sometimes when you have a singles wrestler the becomes tag wrestler or tag because a single stresser law was largely taghrid early on. Because you know. Jackie Jackie Fargo Kinda. Put Him there and he's SPARGO's Kind of you know protege so to speak. But everything's here he did was set at a high level as good as anybody else could find book in that role. And you can't find that very often. And then his magic for all those years behind the MIC. If you look at that that situation are we made sure that our team evolved in one of those Points is the fact that Jerry became when he first got there a lot on the air. Okay remember when we wonder all started ninety three ish. Maybe we January ninety three. Yeah something like that. He was a heel and very annoying. Convincing he'll That knew how to new psychology knew how to get people over and not just physically but mentally in in in TV persona wise. And then as time went on one when Vince lift deter left Aotearoa and became Michigan McMahon then all of a sudden lawler evolve kept devolving and he became more of an ally. Jr's and we were. We were both faces to some degree. Even though we'd say thanks controversial or so time time. Speak our mind from time to time but basically we were there we knew what our role was so he changed again and now with him on raw with a whole new set of farmers his role is still evolving. A little bit her vivus work on over the weekend You know he's he's still evolving. Still Changing. Which reminds you know? We talked about Chris. Jericho doing that. The smart guys figure out how to evolve. Aw stay ahead of the game especially when you're like Jerry who's getting close to seventy right now and he's still works every week he just about. I mean if he's got a weekend off it's rare because he enjoys the wrestling merge much more than enjoys the broadcasting even small venue few hundred people he's is there can post rap. Man Can get the music interesting he enjoys that and why the hell not so I ask you the other day store here I said. How long are you GONNA do? This shit did elegant little places all the stuff travel. It's a travel folks not actually getting their being. They're getting they're getting home he said I'm going to do it as long as they keep booking me I thought that was far. The most level headed honest answer that there was as long as promoters are willing to pay pay him to come do what he can do the ring or wants to do in a ring. Then he's going to continue to do it and he has said Walmart. Quitting I seventy three or seventy five her. Who knows? But it's always ever done so I encourage you do continued for as long as you can and long as healthy. We should mention that the reason we're doing this show today as because tomorrow is his birthday so at some point today or tomorrow Fine Cherry on twitter and wish him a happy seventieth birthday so let's talk about when he goes to the WWF. The first time he actually beats you there. He makes his way up in ninety two and up until this point a sort of ran his promotion Shen sorta rallying the troops the local fans and his market there in Tennessee to Full for him by making fun of the big guys. So you know folk Hogan's the top guy he's going to show you clips of when he bohol coke or fundraising a big angle. He's going to show you where he body slammed Andrei before Hogan ever did or whatever and now after years of sort of villain izing and playing the US against them mentality with the WBF. He joins the company to the point. That MELTZER's headline that week is hell must be frozen over at some point in the past week were you surprised to see. Lawler made his way to New York. Or was it just logical all at some point. Everybody's going to have a stop their New York. If you're good enough and events can make money with you..
"The Obedience of a Christian Man" published - October 2, 1528
"Day was October fifteen twenty eight the book the obedience of a Christian man by English Protestant William Tyndall was first printed in Antwerp Antwerp Belgium in the book. Tyndall said that kings were the head of their countries church and were accountable to guide not to the pope. The book is is one of the key texts in the English reformation. A- period in the sixteenth century when reformers challenged the authority of the Pope and the Roman Catholic Church tender was a scholar and theologian he was also a linguist who became fluent in several languages over the years including French Greek Hebrew and Latin but his religious views grew to be radical and controversial influenced by the reformation tend to believe that only the Bible should determine the doctrine of the church. We also thought that translating the New Testament into English would allow people to have their own understanding of scripture rather than one determined. I the Catholic Church the translation of the Bible that the Roman Catholic Church use the vulgarity was in Latin so the Bible was read in Church in Latin which few people attending religious services could understand but the church wary of anyone or anything that may challenge tradition required ecclesiastical approval of translations and readings of the Bible in English reformer John Wycliffe and those who promoted his views known as lawler's were persecuted as takes for their defiance of the beliefs and practices of the church and their translations of the Bible into English but even though having unauthorized kingland translations of the scriptures result in charges of heresy people still read English translations and reformers acknowledged the Bible as the highest authority the Biblical word not the Pope and Tyndall was determined to translate the Bible into English even after Church authorities in England refused his requests he left England and by fifteen twenty five he had completed his translation of the New Testament and by the next year printing the New Testament Testament was complete. It was the first New Testament in English to be mass produced with the printing press rather than being handwritten thousands of copies. TINDALL's New Testament were printed by the time he was executed in fifteen thirty six per heresy and it influenced later Bible translations including the Sixteen Sixteen Eleven King James Bible Tyndall also published other books in which he criticized the practices of the Catholic Church. One of the most influential was the obedience of a Christian man though the original title of it is much longer than that the book is divided into three main sections preceded by two introductions and the First Section discusses God's laws of obedience in the people bound to obey them the second expressive how the people who have authority should rule first and the third affirms that the literal sense of scripture is spiritual in the book. He said that worshipers should affirm the authority of the Bible over any other authority authorities like the Catholic Church and the post the book also claimed that God appointed kings who authorities of their realms Ambuhl bowland owned a copy of the book which according to anecdotal evidence was eventually shown to King Henry the eighth. It's been claimed that the king liked the stance on Papal Authority authorities expressed in the book and that book influenced the Act of supremacy which declared Henry the eighth and his successors the Supreme Head of the Church of England instead of the Pope Nope. Those claims are unsubstantiated other books. Tyndall wrote include the parable of the wicked mammon and the practice of the prelate
Inside Donald Sterling's Clippers Era
"Grew up in los angeles in the eighties and i remember watching clipper games on t._v.'s a kid. The games themselves weren't weren't really anything to talk about. I mean the team almost never won and yet the voice of the clippers ralph lawler. Somehow made me care well. That was my job and part of the craft. I just felt that was my job to find a way to keep people interested did in a game. That very often wasn't very interesting because we had a lot of those lottie years. That weren't very interesting but there's always a story to tell if fifteen win season there's some young player or players that you've got a story to tell about them that that humanizes them. That makes people likes them makes people root for them. How rookie was a master at making the clippers likable no matter how much they lost honestly think a lot of fans tuned in for ralph more than the basketball because god knows there was no one at the actual arena except for penny marshall and billy crystal. How did you become a clipper fan because no one was a clipper. They asked me to play. They said listen. We only get four guys tonight. Can you still dribble sports arena. Yeah i had tickets for awhile and we they were great but there was no challenge you know and then a friend of mine calls it's come on. Do you want to go see the clippers play as a all right. There was nobody there. I mean it was a triple double meant. There were three couples. Uh at every level the clippers screamed not showtime but that didn't seem to bother donald sterling or at least it didn't seem to register register. He got a lot of negative press but it was attention. People knew his name and he liked that. That's kind of all. He really wanted to be the center center of attention. That's why he started throwing his party's. They were fabulous donald and shelly sterling's infamous white parties so called because i guess we're expected to come wearing white. Everybody came in white except for donald who got to wear black. L. is just fabulous. It was just a big white party. The biggest white party took place at the end of summer as a way to kick off the basketball season. We'd have the players there. They'd get up on stage and a lot of the fans and a lot of ticket holders. Were there down in the white. Show intel tell don casey attended the party's when he was a coach for the clippers westie cups like this high so you can't drink too much wine little hotdog sticks in a multi-million ekberg. His bailable white party is notorious after uh-huh one time with my wife i i was never allowed to go again. It wasn't quite my style anyway but was so seedy an oily about it is he'd have forgive me but it's true he'd have like grade c actors and actresses. The hangers on the people wanted to get back in show business but he'd also mingle mingle with people who were stars. Billy crystal was one any hired more than just impersonators. There were some lovely ladies walking turnaround. Donald called them hostesses. He had them at every party. He threw he'd actually advertised for them in the paper looking for california model types but they were glorified. Call girls there to look good and entertain. The male guests and shelley had to smile and endure it another public humiliation at the hands for husband too much one. The shelly said maybe not enough. There was always a photographer roadster. He had to have a private photographer for everything everything he did. Give a hand to america where he were walking around him. His voice was talking. He was like yes fabulous. This the mirror quentin richardson was drafted by the clippers in the first round of the two thousand draft he was from chicago played college ball there and then declared for the draft after his sophomore year he was barely twenty years old when he landed in los angeles inexperienced his first donald sterling party. We know we were there whereas the is is his guest athletes but then you had i guess you would say his friends and his normal guest is like you know definitely not the same type hyper looking crowd is we are and so for us. We will kind of standing there and just check everything out and it's like you know. This is for a lot out of us the first time this is the first preseason team type owners meaning or house or any of that. We've ever been to have been involved in so i'm i'm dislike. I'm be respectful say will serve because then i'm over here may want it all and we wanted with player los angeles. This was the best part of the party for donald sterling showing off his players. Don't need have the individual players. Stand up and tell why they love l._a. One of his favorite questions and so you'd have all these guys standing ended up you know danny manning and charles smithson yom mark jackson and stand up and say why they i love l._a. And there's a lot of beautiful girls aren't there and i'm you hong. Come on please. I remember four wilt chamberlain who was getting up there and he was almost at the end of his life and he looked very rail thin to me but he says what what am i doing here. I see you you tell me he goes. I don't even know this guy. It was almost heartbreaking. I was just like okay. I'm ready for somebody to make the first move so soon as somebody else leave. I'm gone like i just don't want to be the first one to leave but from out of here he would hold your hand and just would not let go was it was really really uncomfortable. I mean all my god you. He just wanted to someplace else. The thing is as awkward as these parties were. Donald never seemed happier. He got to be the bell of his own ball and for a few hours a captive audience had to at least pretend to think it was really cool that he owned the worst human basketball because in real life no one was donald sterling so donald found ways to manufacture that for himself to force the conversation to the fact that he he owned the clippers whoever happened to walk up he would ask him advice about the team he would go to the airport after a game and the baggage handlers i would say donald sterling over to me and said. Do you think we should trae. Danny manning you talk to the waiter to restaurant talked to usher at the games is famous. This thing is what i think of my coach just as likely he'd be listening to a cabdriver as he would be to a general manager a scout in bach loud he would call me sometimes was late at night. You know i'm roy firestone. You know everybody. You've watched all these interviews. Tell me about larry brown and why he should be the coach of our team. It's ten hindu eleven at night. It's the owner of the clippers. I'm not a basketball coach analysts. He goes roy. Your opinion matters you know he called billy crystal said. What do you think of larry brown. If you say i should hire him. I'm hiring them. Billy crystal must've told him to hire larry brown because he did and it was a good higher in one thousand nine hundred and again in nineteen ninety-three brown actually led the clippers to the playoffs for the first time since before donald on the team but then

And we're here filling in for Jefferson Graham on today's episode of talking tech. He's on vacation. But we're here because we're nerds. And we host USA today networks premier and only key culture podcast here out of the USA today headquarters, and we also like tech things, and you guys probably also like tech things Star Wars marvel video games that all happens at our podcast. And so we're going to spend the next two minutes talking about Star Wars and video games bringing over with breath, millionaire our foremost video game expert at USA today. Thank you ramming me, by the way, although I'm co hosting so, yeah, let's go to I love having. You wanna thank you. Appreciate it. Yeah. So Star Wars celebration happened and one of the things that was announced was a new video game. It's called Star Wars jet. I've fallen order on law and order don't. Sorry. Sorry. I'm not a video games expert. I don't know if you guys could tell hey, we we're always welcoming new new people who to the fold, so please I'm more than happy introduced stuff. This is is set after the events of episode three of installers Kanter, venue, the sip. It follows this order sixty six that, you know, obviously is to wipe out all the Djeddai. I know. So I it's focused on that story line. What I find interesting though is the studio that's making it. It is studio called respond entertainment, the founders of that helped create call of duty. They also created a couple of really high profile games most recently one called apex legends. Which isn't that the new fortnight? It is basically the big fortnight rival. So and has gotten a lot of buzz. So seeing them attached to this project is very fascinating. It also has believe one of the minds behind God of war, which is another popular adventure series. So there are a lot of high profile names involved. So it looks like it's gonna be really good. The only drawback is EA has not been the best steward of the Star Wars license lately. And they're battlefront games have gotten a lot of flack. So there's a little bit of like uncertainty about what are we going to get here? But again Star Wars video game, very promising. Okay. Quick off the top of your head. What's your favorite stores game ever? Okay. Okay. So I'm going kind of off the grid because there's so many about Djeddai, but I went with Star Wars Republican Mando which came out in two thousand five and it's set during the clone wars at it features this commando unit, basically, and it's on a team based in doing all these missions on different planets in the Star Wars universe like cash, and Cachique and other places. It was a lot of fun. I really liked it Star Wars the reputation video games is kinda hit or miss. So this is one of the really good ones. So I'm picking Republic commando. All right. So that'll do it for our sub infra talking tech today Star Wars jet. I fall order coming soon November fifteenth on Xbox One and PlayStation for NPC Star Wars Republic commando. Yes.

Newest contenders in the streaming wars: Apple, Disney and more

You can find a podcast like this lovely one were hosting right now. Talking tech. We're filling in Frankel, Jeff. Yes. Hi, Jeff hope you're enjoying your time off. So. Yeah, right now, we're gonna talk about streaming services because we have another one on the list Disney. Plus, it is among eight thousand give or take a couple hundred streaming services that are out there. The big six. Or what we calling the ones that are either already available that are dominant and the three new ones that are due this year that we think will be dominant. So that's Netflix Amazon Hulu, apple plus Disney. Plus, and whatever Warner media calls it their service, which will have like, friends and some other stuff. I don't know they're weird. But it's the AT and T Time Warner merger streaming service. Let's feng. Let's just hope they don't use pause on the title. We'll see what God now, so Disney. Plus, they announced all the shows and movies and all the stuff they're going to have on there and the price. It's going to be I believe six ninety nine per month or roughly seventy dollars for the year. What's your take on Disney postal may take on Disney? Plus is that their way better at this than apple is? And that's probably because they've been in the entertainment industry for many decades and apple thinks that they can just reinvent the wheel with a black and white video of famous people talking about the importance of art. And not give out any details or show any clips and Disney knows that they need to wet fans. Appetites the price is insane. The price is going to be a big deal because I don't think apple can afford to make the price that low and Warner media certainly can't it's way lower than that flicks right now, they're most popular package is twelve ninety nine a month. And the family angle is not to be trifled with, you know, Disney's been family for many decades, and they've survived better that a lot of the Oji Hollywood studios. Well, I mean for Disney the big advantages, they own all the content, and you know, at least with Netflix, and Hulu what they've done is. They've gotten the rights to a lot of shows and movies, and then they've kind of backed in with their own original shows. Disney has a ton of stuff already. They have their own Disney properties. They have marvel they have Star Wars apples at a at a bit of a disadvantage because they have none of the properties right now. It's going to be all originals. It's going to be a lot of originals at once more originals than any other service has yet to debut with. So that's a new strategy. I don't think it will work as well. And I think Disney has low key been preparing for this for decades because they had that whole Disney volt thing which ends up being in their favor. Because like it's not like we own a lot of those things on DVD or we're used to seeing them a lot earlier. So the idea that like I watch Bambi whatever I want now is very appealing because I couldn't when I was a kid, and they're going to have a lot of the marvel movies out first and foremost on their service same Star Wars. So there's a lot of incentive to get involved between this and the price. I think that I mean, I think it's going to be very competitive. And I think you're gonna see a lot of people jump on it early on. And. Yeah, family friendly. I don't think they're any kind of adult are level type movies TV shows or anything it's mostly very much. Surrounding kids and family stuff. So it's going to be a very interesting niche. The streaming wars have begun that Tatan Bumba Obam that'll do it for talking tech today.

"lawler" Discussed on Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard
"It's Lawler, Robin, damn and Sabbath taken on Tommy dreamer and Sandman and Rick rude. Who's actually doing commentary during this time with Joey styles says he's the mystery partner, which is huge reaction. Lawler calls cripple. But he comes to the ring. It's in the cage, and as a mmediately closed lined army clotheslines dreamer, and then Rams Buell in the cage and the heels destroy San manager once again, so it's a pretty it's pretty fun deal here where everybody's turning and siding with the W F and Terry funk comes out to make the save. But he's jumped by the triple threat. A really really fun angle, especially if you're an AC w fan, they handcuff Sam in the cage start destroying him. And they're building a ton of heat on the way to hardcore heaven, the the main event is not Jerry Lawler. But it is the thing with the most heat he's going to wrestle Tommy dreamer. And they're gonna brawl all over the crowd. Plenty of time nearly nineteen minutes. Meltzer would say it went way too long. It was totally over gimmick. But a lot of people thought it was the best match other thought it was the worst match. But that's just because you know, there's so much he with it from these Dow hard CW fans Meltzer only gave it a half star not even a full star here. And of course, Tommy dreamer our hero. You're AC. W fan beats Jerry Lawler. Did you ever watch the hardcore heaven pay per view? You know, other than the thing Lawler in the one with corny. No, I didn't this is the wrestling debut of the insane clown posse far as no not that they're wrestling. But they're here and gingy Masin. And I know those to your favorites. Absolutely. Absolutely. And. Yeah. But I didn't see this one. Thank god. All right here, we go. Here's a story. We were talking about a minute ago. And I'm glad you tease that because you knew it was coming reports of timber of ninety seven Mark Selker one of the three Cleveland part owners of the US W A filed the lawsuit on September eleventh against Jerry Lawler. Larry Barton, the latter of whom on the other fifty percent of the ownership charging fraud in the sale of the company..
"lawler" Discussed on Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard
"I I don't know him talking about lawler's, you know, Jerry is not gonna hurt ya. But yeah, no one knew. He's standing there and music. It's put the put the hat on a goes. Wow. What are you gonna do? Oh rub. Behind him. Snatch hat off his head. King of the ring ninety six while the pens are Lawler gets pan in three minutes and fifty seconds after what Meltzer says are some pathetic, clotheslines and shoulder. Block Lalla did a great comedy monologue. Insulting individual fans came to the ring jokes were all older than Lawler himself have the same lines. He's been delivering for fifteen years, but he did a great job of getting the crowd. Going Lawler Joan toria during his pre match or teen and kept on until hitting piledriver which Lawler which were the no cell on and went right to finish dud. How thankful was Lawler to have this shit over with very we all were I, you know, there wasn't win warrior in stained broke in verse territory that they ever went to was Memphis, right? I think Jerry fell he could get something out of the warrior, but warrior, really didn't feel that Lawler was his caliber and really thought that he was head shot. Shoulders above Jerry, as far as stature and everything in Vince thought that same thing Lawler did Jerry will get something out of him. You know, we'll we'll get through this. So it was a meshing of styles meshing personalities, and once you're into you think. Okay. The angled in work the match sucks is tap out. Move on. It is not his best stuff. But the next thing. He did. I really enjoyed Jerry starts a feud with Jake Roberts and Jerry's insulting him huge commentary and as a frame of reference roberts's back here doing promos on TV admitting. He's had struggles with addiction. But now he's on a bit of a redemption tour, and even his snake has called revelations. So is born again and now clean and sober etcetera etcetera. There are some great lines that come out of this like when most people get drunk. They see snakes. But when snakes get drunk Basie, Jake Vince called Jake from Atlanta and asked if there was a drinking contest in the Olympics. His favorite drink is the next one. He thinks Beethoven's fifth is a bottle. Unlike Clinton, Jake, always inhaled. Every time we walk by liquor store. His nose lights up..

"I think thank God for Bret Hart Jerry Lawler, because they they disguised everything Glenn was very green. It's time and didn't probably really didn't belong in that spot. But you had Lawler and Brett to kinda get him through it. So made passable wasn't great once on to ride home go. Oh my God. Did you see Bret Hart is a Kim? Good. So Brittany come have a rematch on raw in Lawler suspended in a cage over the ring. And after a while into the match he kept saying he was scared heights in his nose starts to bleed and Lawler would explain in his book that it had a deviated septum. And he had no idea exactly what points to the nose did it, but he'd never even had a broken nose. But for whatever reason one nasal passage was much narrower than the other. And if you ever had trouble breathing he'd use a nasal spray. But whenever that stuff we're off. You'd have to open that passage backup again, you'd give scab on the inside. And sometimes feel like it was closing up. And he would have a big. Nose bleed. So he screaming events. Don't raise me up. Scared heights any reaches up and pulls the scab out and starts to bleed. I mean, what an old pro fucking Lawler is to even think of that. Right. Absolutely genius. Because we're watching it. And we know he was going to do that. And no clue but it was part of you is thinking did he take something up there too? Right. I is he squirting blood up his nose and run down like that. And but it was ingenious because I'm afraid of heights. And when some people get too high up their nose bleeds, something else Lawler dead that was pretty innovative in not just that blood spot, but he would wrestle enhancement talent. And a lot of times he would do it with a microphone in the ring with him. So he'd do commentary on his own match. That's like fucking genius as that his idea to talk through that. I love that was Vinci's ideas away to get Jerry to do color commentary. And why would he do it on his own match down and Lawler had a hard time with it at first because it's kind of awkward to try and have a match and do commentary through the whole thing and find ways to get your opponent down. And what the hell are you gonna do? Do. So in the very beginning. It was tough. But he he got the flow of it after a while. But that was something Vince just loved to hear him. Hear him do is own commentary on his own match on TV somewhere in here. The start to make some announcer changes and DOK Hendrix comes in and actually replaces Jerry Lawler. And then Jerry moves over to superstars. What's the what's the rationale and more Markle Hayes, less Jerry Lawler. No. We were just looking for change change it up shake it up some new seasons. New times, they often just shake it up. And I'd really tried to get Michael in for a long time. And would get the same answer. You know, God damn that luck look at him. So we finally made it happen. And there was what the hell was going on. We just needed that. Void and we needed him quick. So Michael came in and just like Lawler, he hit it off with Vince right away. And they had chemistry going back and forth. And I always thought that Michael I think Michael's one of the best play by play guys are colored guys in the business for he'll wow about that. Glowing going V there. Let's talk about that survivor series. This is something that we've never spent a lot of time on survivor series nineteen ninety five and it's an interesting time in the company because you've got undertaker fought to Henry. Godwin and salvio Vega. Taking on Jerry Lawler, hunters, Townsley, king, Mabel, and Isaac yank them, fourteen minutes and twenty one seconds. What did you think of the match Meltzer would say not much for wrestling? But the booking was good game in have. God you look look that lineup undertaker fought to lead to be rookie..
Under-pressure Maduro warns of civil war
"Time is three ten in Caracas where the Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has warned of potential civil war. If he comes under more pressure to stunned down after the US, President Donald Trump described military intervention as an option Madero gave a television interview in which he said said President Trump will be stained with blood if he did. So the United States has officially recognized Guido the leader of Venezuela's national assembly is the country's acting president and seeking to act as a catalyst towards Medeiros capitulation. It's put sanctions on its state oil company affecting effectively halting, its international trading operations, O'Brien classes, still with us for more analysis on this story. And also joining me as an a moment to analyze the impact on the global oil markets is Alex Lawler, who is senior energy correspondent at Reuters. Let me start out by coming to you Brian when it comes to decisions on what do about. His Walea toward extent. Do you? Think has the white has got its I on its oil reserves. Well, I mean, it's hard to say Trump has overtime basically said in every intervention the US has has made with a country that has oil that the US should just pay for it by stealing the Royal which is illegal it's against international law, and it will not happen. But Trump might think that that's how it works. I think this is about geopolitics. I think it's about Trump opposing somebody who is a leftist. I think that Madero is is, you know, bad because he's an authoritarian person who's basically destroyed democracy in Venezuela and created a crisis. But I don't think that's why Trump opposes him. Since Trump seems to support every other Rotarians strongman on the planet. But it is it is something where if he were smart he would try to build a coalition of western allies because of the history of American intervention in Latin America, I think that would probably clash with Donald Trump's desire to be seen as sort of. You know, the king of. A show. And and that's that's why this is heading for potentially dangerous circumstances strategy. And this this focus on a removing Madero is is not likely probably coming from from the Oval Office para say, it's coming from the, you know, the political machine that is that the White House the people around Trump. They're more likely the people actually pushing his buttons on this. Yeah. It's possible.
