Crapper Paul S. returns with more awesome Halloween-themed Memphis clips in Memphis Monster Mash 2014!

He writes:

It’s Halloween again so it’s time for Wrestlecrap’s second annual MEMPHIS MONSTER MASH! Yes it’s time to look at back at the weird, wonderful world of the territory where it was Halloween every-day.

First off we have a six-man tag match featuring Dustin Rhodes, Ricky Morton, and FREDDIE KRUGER?!! Also check out appearance by the MASTER OF PAIN who looks awfully familiar. (He’s actually Mark Calaway.)

Second we’ve seen Jerry Lawler fight off many weirdies before but BOTA THE WITCH DOCTOR may be his most menacing adversary yet. This savage warrior controls the power of fire. Also his former manager mysteriously vanished around the time Bota suddenly got a pet rat. So perhaps he was victim of Bota’s black magic?

Finally check out this clip from a documentary as Jim Blake talks about the debut of DR. FRANK! And just how could the debut of this monster went horribly awry?

    Wasn’t Dr Frank in WCW/nWo Revenge?

  2. The Scanian Maniac says:

    Shouldn’t this concept, of wrestling in a little TV studio by day but in arenas in front of thousands at night (the TV show was just a way to promote the arena shows) be inducted?

    The audience is so small, that the children’s cry echoes and you can hear a pin drop.

    • Al Lobama says:

      Absolutely not. The Memphis Formula is pro wrestling in it’s purest form. Use the TV show to promote the big arena show for that week, end the arena show with a monumental or shocking moment that will get everybody in the arena to tune into the next TV show to see what happens next, and repeat the cycle. That’s not wrestlecrap. That’s good business!

    Nothing like the Memphis crowd cheering for the babyface Freddy Krueger who was a child molester and murderer in the Nightmare series. “Come on kids sit on Freddy’s lap and we’ll talk about the first thing that pops up.” Bota would have been a good partner for the early Taz character when he dressed in the same outfit essentially. The only bomb in the studio was the Dr. Frank character.

  4. Doc 902714 says:

    Rough And Ready was also the name of a future WCW tag team comprised of Dick Slater & Mike Enos.

    • Sir Cheese says:

      I think I remember that – it was right around the time period that the nWo was starting. Didn’t Enos go by “the Mauler” at some point during this and weren’t they managed by Col. Parker?

  5. Rick Grimes says:

    I know it’s not him but Bota looks a lot like Haku
