Heel death in the era of kayfabe

New, 3 comments

Here we have a promo right after the death of Andy Kaufman. If this took place today the show would be a hour long tribute where wrestlers like Porkchop Cash would talk about what a lovable guy Andy was. But since kayfabe was king in Memphis (Well the other king of Memphis) Jerry Lawler's response to Kaufman's death is a lot less warm and fuzzy.
