IN THE ROOM with Stacy “The Kat” Carter (with Jerry Lawler Update), ECW’s Tony Mamaluke, and NEW Announcer Gerry Strauss
Wow … just wow. This week IN THE ROOM, Brady Hicks is joined by Stacy “The Kat” Carter (excerpts below), as she updates the fans on Jerry Lawler‘s health situation. The gang also welcomes former ECW star Tony Mamaluke, as he runs down a fantastic career that spanned ECW, WWE, WCW, and TNA. What are Tony’s thoughts on his extreme legacy, being a “comedy” guy, extreme reunions, and being a part of the East Coast Wrestling Association (ECWA), where he will make his debut this Saturday, September 15th at the ECWA 45th Anniversary Show in Newark, Delaware. Plus, Northeast Wrestling (NEW) announcer – and Brady’s PWI colleague – Gerry Strauss hops IN THE ROOM to talk about NEW’s “Wrestling Under the Stars” show, September 15th in Fishkill, New York … a show that will feature Hulk Hogan! In addition, Brady and the gang offer up the WWE Night of Champions pay-per-view predictions, and so … much … more. Thanks, as always, for the support!
But before any of that, though, Brady, Derrick McDonald, Mike Bessler, and Ray Bogusz are joined IN THE ROOM by a good friend of the show, Stacy “The Kat” Carter. Carter is a former WWE Diva, and the ex-wife and good friend of Jerry “The King Lawler … which gives her a very good perspective on the Lawler nightmare from Raw this week. Stacy hopped on the phone with Jerry’s girlfriend tonight … then called IN THE ROOM to update the fans on how he is doing. Excerpts below:
On Jerry Lawler’s Condition:
“Right now he’s stable, being responsive with a tube down his throat. He’s squeezing people’s hands, nodding his head. He can point out where he’s hurting, stuff like that. The next step is to wait for the test results to comeback tomorrow, the scan on his brain to see what – if any – brain damage he may or may not have. And that’s pretty much it. He’s still critical but stable. He’s strong and he’s stubborn, so if anybody can pull through its him.”
On The Amount of Time it Took for CPR to Work:
“WWE’s doctor was there when Jerry collapsed and fell out of his chair. He started CPR. From what I’ve been told is Jerry did not regain consciousness there. They did revive him there, but it took a long time – 15 minutes. It took a long time to bring him back. But he’s back now, he’s lightly sedated, and they’re taking him off the ventilator. He’s not in the heavy sedation that they had him in.”
On it Happening on LIVE TV:
“Jerry would be dead right now if it did not happen where it happened. Stuff like that just keeps running through my brain. Jerry normally grabs something – some food – on the way back to the hotel … fast food or if the bar is open, and he eats, then he’s there by himself. But this could have happened just two or three hours later and nobody would have been there with him and he wouldn’t be here right now. Or he could have been driving to the arena or flying to Montreal. If it had to happen, I’m very thankful that it did there.”
This week, “The Living Legend” himself, Larry Zbyszko steps IN THE ROOM with Brady Hicks, DJ, and Kevin McElvaney to look back at his more than 30 year career in the wrestling business. Check it out as Zbyszko looks back on mentoring under (and turning on) Bruno Sammartino, his war of words with Chris Jericho, the instrumental role he played in WCW’s rise and the New World Order’s emergence, and his thoughts on how to change the business for the better. Plus, the guys offer their WrestleMania thoughts and predictions.
On Keeping Up With The Business:
To be honest, I just don’t find wrestling entertaining the way it is right now. I just don’t watch it. I wish it was better for the new generation, it could be great but they make the guys look like morons. I just don’t watch it because it’s all silly. There’s no suspense. You can see the same crap you saw tonight any night. Boring. They’ve just gotten stale because what they are doing today is the same thing they were doing 15 years ago. I can honestly say for any of these young guys coming up that I can see why they’d rather get involved in that Ultimate Fighting.
