Since Jerry Lawler fireballed Eddie Gilbert and ended Hot Stuff’s reign of terror at TV5, Eddie has since placed a $25,000 bounty on Lawler’s leg. The bounty goes to anyone who can break the King’s leg (again) and theoretically put him out of Wrestling for good.

The first man to come after Lawler for the bounty is Curt Hennig, who would soon lose the AWA bellt to Lawler. Lance Russell and Dave Brown introduce taped highlights of the match which took place at the Mid-South Coliseum. Special guest appearance by Missy Hyatt, Scott Levy and Eddie Gilbert in a mask.
