Lance, visibly bothered by the blatant disregard for rules, somewhat hesitantly introduces footage of a classic Memphis Wrestling concession stand brawl which took place at the Tupelo Sports Arena featuring The Blond Bombers, Wayne Farris (Honky Tonk Man) and Larry Latham (Moondog Spot), versus Rick Gibson (Rock N Roll Express) and his brother Robert Gibson. Highlight footage of the brawl is followed by an interview of young Robert Gibson regarding the event.
At the time, Robert was wrestling with his brother, Rick Gibson, before forming the Rock N Roll Express later with Ricky Morton. The puffy, pimple-faced Gibson is interupted by a motor-mouthed Wayne Farris who runs in to spoil the interview with a good old fashioned Memphis beat-down with the help of Larry Latham. Ricky Morton and Bill Dundee arrive to make the save.
