Good episode? Give it some love!
While they both eventually ended up working for Vince McMahon in the WWF, Jerry "The King" Lawler" and "Macho Man" Randy Savage were bitter rivals between their two feuding Tennessee-based promotions. While Lawler was always the top dog in the NWA-backed CWA, Savage was the banner carrier for his father, Angelo Poffo's ICW promotion. While the two companies never inter-mingled, ICW stars constantly threw out personal jabs and made real-life challenges on their television shows to the top stars of CWA. CWA's talent always ignored ICW's ongoing pokes and prods. It wasn't until ICW officially shut its doors that Jerry Jarrett and Jerry Lawler decided to sign Randy Savage and Lanny Poffo, and the dream feud could finally take place between "The King" and "The Macho Man". Go back to the years 1985 and 1993 to watch these amazing Memphis Cage matches held under the CWA and USWA banners!
