WWF Sunday Night Heat by Larry Musso





Just one mail, but its an important one. My buddy Jason has this to say:

Hi Larry, The Fozzy song was called "Eat The Rich," other than that the report was great!

Keep it up.

Well...don't I feel stupid, well, not really. Send me more mail people !

KNICKS UPDATE: 2-1, since the loss to the 76ers we've beaten two nothing teams. Atlanta and Washington aren't exactly world-class teams. Tuesday night we got the Bucks ! Go KNICKS !

Earlier Tonight: Tazz is on the phone with Michael Cole. He say's Jerry Lawler is the Special Guest Host tonight, and that Foley said he can't touch Lawler. Tazz is pissed !

Usual HeaT opening procedes. Rebecca welcomes us from WWF New York, and the crowd is really alive. (I wonder if they know they're watching HeaT.) Rebecca pump's the crowd up, and introduces Jerry "The King" Lawler. Lawler wanted Rebecca to know, he is happy to see her, but these are markers in my pocket. Lawler talks about how he loves artwork. He then procedes to start sketching something. Goes on about how he did the artwork for "Christmas Kaos." The King goes on to say how he loves women also. He also plugs the XFL, because he's going to be able to see all the Cheerleader try-out's. He said the cheerleaders will be the most entertaining, attractive, talented, and that when he finds them, they wont look like this: King then turns the drawing around and its a picture of Tazz in a cheerleading outfit. Funny stuff, good drawing.


Earlier Tonight: Rebecca was reading Christmas Kaos and Tazz broke up the session, and took the book. He named the book Tazz's Christmas Chokeout or something like that. Tazz says the drawing is excellent. "Who Drew this Stuff ? Jerry Lawler ! That must be a misprint !"

William Regal(c) vs. ?-Regal picks up the microphone and start's giving the fan's a lesson in goodwill. He wants his opponent to not talk untill he's finished. The Road Dogg's Music plays....

In the back, Lawler asks Rebecca, why she's upset. Lawler than procedes to tell her to put on the Cheerleading outfit, Rebecca says ok, but Lawler has to do something for her tonight. Is Rebecca employed by the WWF or MTV ? Anyone know ?


When we come back, where Bull Buchanon wants to speak to Jeff Hardy. Bull wants him to join, Bull babbles on, as I go apathetic. Jeff tells him to stick it where the sun don't shine, and rips up the pamphlet and throws it in his face.

Back in WWF New York, Lawler babbles on about the RTC. Some music plays in the backround, and out comes Rebecca dressed as a cheerleader. Well, this is better than most MTV show's.


When we come back Tazz is showing off his drawing of the King on his throne, a toilet. Tazz laugh's like a crazy man.

Bull Buchanon vs. Jeff Hardy(w/ Tag Belt)--Lockup--no, Bull with a kick and starts hitting Jeff with all sorts of punches and kicks.

In the Back: Lillian interview's Edge and Christian. These guy's are too, funny, but they talk to fast for my 76 gwam. Tonight Edge and Matt Hardy !!

Lawler said it's been so much fun, maybe because of Rebecca. Lawler understand's we're going to be taking a few questions. Okay for this, I'll just give a summary of the Q & A OK ?

Q1: "What do you feel about Debra being Lt. Commissioner, I mean a women of that magnatude being in a postion mostly dominated by men ?"

King: "Well let me tell you....the smile almost had to be surgically removed from my face, when I saw Debra being appointed Lt. Commissioner. Because, I mean we got,Puppy Power.

Tazz: What did It feel like at Summerslam to get Choked out by the One Man Crime Spree

Lawler: It didn't feel that great, but not as bad as you wearing a toilet lid on your head.

Q3: Do you know who the man behind Rikishi's brutality is ?

Lawler: All signs point to the Rock.

Q4: What have the XFL Cheerleading Tryouts been like ?

Lawler: They've been great.

Q5: Gore or Bush.

Lawler: He's pissed because none of them excepted the Smackdown ! challenge, but honestly, he like's Bush.

Q6: From Rebecca in NYC, how exactly did you come up with the term Puppies ?

Lawler: He said the Road Dogg was the first person to say it, but now he grabbed it and has had it copyrighted.

Q7: What was it like working with Andy Kauffman ? -This is a zinger..

Lawler:" Did you see the Movie Man on the Moon" Guy: "Yes I did." Lawler: "So you were the guy who saw it !" Funny. Lawler said Kauffman was a great guy, as opposed to Carey, and that Kauffman really loved wrestling.

Rebecca then comes out, and whispers in Lawler's ear, and Lawler gleams, as they both walk off. I smell, something cooking.
