Here I am with Andy Kaufman just days after Lawler did a series of piledrivers on him.

Although Lawler wrestled a list of classic pro wrestling superstars it was his feud with Kaufman that rocketed him to stardom!

(I was fortunate to be the person who initially introduced Kaufman to Lawler – -and they took it to heights I never thought possible).

    That was a classic feud.

    Thanks, Bill, for introducing those two. There were two major events that helped launch Professional Wrestling into the mainstream in the 1980′s. Hulk Hogan as “Thunderlips” in Rocky 3, and the slap heard ’round the world, when Jerry Lawler had all he could take from Andy Kaufman on David Letterman’s NBC show. Hulk got most of the credit, but in my mind they were equally important. Andy Kaufman WWE HoF 2013. Bill Apter WWE HoF 2013.
