When you talk about bad Memphis what about Adam Batman West snd Jerry Lawler as superking? Thank goodness this was only to promote a carshow and not a angle. IMHO the worse Memphis ever was the commossion talked about in the worse stables ever thread.

I watched all three and I can say without question or doubt, that white rat had more talent than all of the rest combined. I do not know what the commentators were paid, but it was not enough to try and have to cover for these.
-------------------- I am always right, because I always listen to my wife.
All thjree of these clips were beyond horrible. Dr. Death at least could have actually been interesting they hadn't have hired someone's female cousin to be Nurse Kratchett. Even if tey would have hired the same girl., more than 20 inutes before the show and coached her on how to be nurse like and taught her a couple of things to say. The Humongous thing is just destined to go wrong from the beginning when again Humongous is average sized, and Humongous should never be a slap hands and greet kind of face, that talks. He can be a face, but he should always be a liottle bit unstable and should NEVER talk. Samantha has a nice backside, but when she turned around, not so nice. The Humongious guy sounded like he was trying hard not to climax while she was trying to give hom a kiss. I couldn't even watch all of the Grave Digger garbage.
I wonder if that's the same Gravedigger who showed up on some low level St. Louis indys in the early 2000's. I'm not sure by watching the clip, but if he lost some hair and put on some weight, it could be the same guy. Level of "talent" looked to be about the same....
Who the hell thought this Dr. Death would get over with a mouthpiece (Nurse Kratchett) who was completely unattractive and couldn't do anything remotely close to even a mediocre promo? Is it possible the two came in as a package deal? Almost anyone could have been better for Dr. Death, even...
Nate the Rat, who once again proved he didn't have what it took to be a decent manager in Mempho with The Gravedigger. Like Dr. Death, I've seen worse try to be put over as star material in Memphis, but Nathaniel Whitlock ain't the guy to do it. Nate was better suited as the manager of enhancement talent he normally was - but even there, Eddie "Boss" Winders was better in the role.
As for "Humongous", I'm not sure anyone could have put this guy over in the gimmick. Dave Brown tried, Samantha tried, Bull Pain tried, but it's like trying make chicken salad from...well, you know.

Dr. Death = Kenny Kendall. Nurse Kratchett = Connie Cook (Bob's wife).

The thing is I really liked this.....at first. The first week they showed the video (which I thought was really cool, especially the music) and Bert Christopher Honey Love Prentice interrupted Lawler's studio promo on the mike on the back to intro it - he wasn't on camera - and was really good.
In a tribute to the beauty and artistry of spoken English language, Jerry Lawler moderates a debate between Jeff Gaylord and The Sandman (during his "beach bum" phase)! Don't say I didn't warn you...

Penrod was a nerd gimmick paired with CW Bergstrom as a principal type. I don't know what happened to Penrod, but Bergstrom returned to Oregon and I think still does some work in Portland-area indies.
Somewhere along the way, I heard Penrod had died. He was a nerdy student, while Bergstrom was the principal. Bert Prentice was involved as well. They were always punishing Penrod for not learning his lessons in wrestling. Penrod dressed in short pants, white shirt, suspenders, horn rimmed glasses, and some kind of beanie.

There was a Gravedigger at a show here in Springfield, OH around 94 or 95. He actually looked almost exactly like a scaled down version of the Undertaker. The funniest part, looking back, is I'm almost certain Joey Styles was his manager that night.
