I took a look at a match that shocked a lot of people in Memphis. Austin Idol battling Jerry Lawler inside a steel cage in a hair vs. hair match. The outcome surprised many, but did it surprise you?

It was well done. I was getting Memphis at the time and it was a pretty hot deal.

One of the things I liked was Bill Dundee came out and said even though they were friends at the time, he wished he was the one that got to shave Lawler's head.

It was a nice, short trim. You wouldn't want to see the King having to run around bald now would you?

No matter how much heat this angle got and how well it was executed, this is exactly right. Even Lance Russell mentions in his commentary of the match that Lawler's personal barber was at ringside. Lawler basically got a huge payday to get a legit hair cut. Yes, it should have been shaved.

And then Lawler shoulda turned heel on the barber and shaved HIS head [Big Grin]

Lawler's haircut was almost a decade after hers. Dundee lost his hair in a previous match, then put up her hair against Lawler's in a match a week later in 1977.

I hate to break it to some of you, but the fact that Lawler didn't go completely bald did NOTHING to diminish the drawing power of the angle.

Speaking of Bill's wife Beverly...



Looks like this was before the shavings started.

This looks like Dundee here shortly after he got his head shaved in September 1977:
