Jerry Lawler, AWA World Heavyweight Champion

Post by Hisaharu Tanabe » 2011/08/20 Sat 9:44 am

Last night, I was watching an episode of Monday Night RAW. Jerry Lawler was brought into the ring by Vince McMahon and was awarded this very cheap-looking belt (not even a metal with leather but more like a big piece of soft plastic or cloth) with WWE's version of AWA logo on it. Vince started saying, "We do now own the trademarks of AWA, and QUITE FRANKLY, the King had never lost the...."

That's when I woke up.

It's kinda sad when you actually dream about pro-wrestling.

Even more sadly, I kept thinking what would happen to The Sheik (Joey Machete) and Larry Zbyzsko, both of whom still claim the title, until I finally realized it was a dream.
