Throwback Thursday:Bloody Studio Brawl – Tommy Rich, Jerry Lawler, Dirty Rhodes, Don Bass (9-27-86) Memphis Wrestling

A bloody Memphis studio brawl is touched off after a “Loser Leaves Town vs Masks” match featuring Jerry Lawler and Tommy Rich going against “Fire & Flame” for their masks at the Mid-South Coliseum during a special Friday night show on the previous night. Fire & Flame lost their masks at the event, revealing themselves to be Dirty Rhodes and Don Bass. The following Saturday morning, a victorious Tommy Rich enters the TV5 studio with the usual fanfare as kids rush to greet the platinum-haired star. It’s just another Saturday morning as the kids gather around their televisions to watch Ol’ Wildfire in action. But his scheduled match with Keith Roberson is interrupted when Fire & Flame (Dirty Rhodes and Don Bass) along with Larry Wright (Torch) run in and beat Tommy to a bloody pulp with a chain and a steel chair. With blood all over the place and kids going into shock, Eddie Marlin threatens to suspend them if they don’t leave the studio. Tommy, a blood-soaked mess, is then helped out of the area. Afterwards, when the ruthless attackers are being interviewed by Lance Russell, Tommy comes back, still bloody, but now he has Jerry Lawler in tow. Jerry himself is all beaten and bruised because of (allegedly) Fire, Flame and Torch ran him off the road earlier this morning, then pulled him out of his car and assaulted him. Now the King is mad, buddy! He could KILL them…
