Speaking of the new DVD, Jerry Lawler was a guest on “Cerrito Live” at the weekend to hype its release. On there, Lawler revealed that he was “very involved” with selecting the content of the Home Video, working alongside Matt Rogers, a WWE Network series producer.

Lawler also stated that for the most part WWE let him pick out the Memphis Wrestling material he wanted and that the selected matches came from the library of Memphis content that he himself owns, at a price to WWE. As you may recall from the content listing, there are five such matches included (counting Blu-ray exclusives), plus clips in the documentary.

You can listen to the interview at CerritoLive.com or by using the player below:

    I like the dvd. Wish they had some austin idol matches, the tupelo concession brawl, more memphis studio stuff

    It been nice for wwe to get the 90s mem stuff too, as most of the attitude era guys started in power pro. And vince led a wwf invasion down there. I love the matches on the dve that have lance russel on it. Dude is so good.

    Jim Cornette reminds me of the mobster who gets arrested and spills his guts to the FBI about the inner workings of the mob. I like shoot interviews and all, but there’s something desperate about them by the people being interviewed. They can’t find work in the business anymore because they badmouthed everyone around, so now they expose it.

    We all know professional wrestling is a scripted TV show. We know the inner workings of the business, but we really shouldn’t. Some things should stay behind the curtain.

    Watched the Lawler documentary over the weekend (Amazon shipped my copy early), and it’s good, but kind of brief considering the length of his career.
