Lauper Dedicates Song To Wrestling Legends - 28th August 2018
not forget Andy Kaufman - Jerry Lawler - Jim Carey (Man On The Moon) connection
Rourke portrayal of professional wrestling in 'The Wrestler' was magnificent,
but is it too edgy for a WWE Hall Of Fame nomination; Paul Heyman could be suitable
inductee for Rourke re barbwire tie in!
Lauper named several wrestling legends at a concert last night (27th August) in
San Diego, where she opened for Rod Stewart. Before she performed The Goonies
'r' Good Enough, she dedicated the song to "her adviser of many years, Captain
Lou Albano," as well as Roddy Piper, The Fabulous Moolah, Andre the Giant,
Nikolai Volkoff, The Iron Sheik and Wendi Richter. She mentioned that she managed
Richter and "knows a few moves." She also played the video of the song
during her performance, which starred Piper, Albano, "Classy" Freddie
Blassie, Volkoff and Sheik, and included a cameo from Steven Spielberg. (Thanks

Cyndi Lauper would be a logical choice to
induct into the WWE Hall Of Fame. Suitable persons to induct her would include
Hulk Hogan, David Wolff, Wendi Richter, either of the late Robby Piper offspring,
and Pat Patterson. We look forward to hearing what the WWE powers that be think
of our recommendation.

be waiting for this for what feels like a lifetime.
via a live recording of Network Nine's 'Today' show, I got to enjoy a Cyndi Lauper
performance, and boys and girls, did we have fun.
knew that Cyndi was is Sydney, as the word of this good news was all the buzz
with news media, photographers and fans, but fortunately I got tipped off about
the Goodard Park morning appearance just the night before with an article appearing
in The Inner West Courier.
live 'Today' show started at 5.30am, however Cyndi and the band didn't appear
on stage and kick off their performance until 7.15am or so.
crowd was pumped, as were television presenters Karl Stefanovic, Lisa Wilkinson
and Richard 'Wilde' (in another lifetime) Wilkins.
was fortunate to get to the park earlier and was able to find a spot really close
to the front of the stage. Soon after I got there, hundreds more flocked in and
we started to feel like sardines for a while, but security was onto it and was
able to reduce some of the stress.
amazing how good Cyndi looks and sounds for her youthful 57. Her vibrant energy
radiated the stage and the audience, and genuine warmth and appreciation was reciprocated.
was delighted to hear that the ultra talented New Yorker has a son of 13 years
of age, the same delightful (most of the time) age of mine. Cyndi told the story
to Nine's entertainment reporter Richard Wilkins, of junior who once partly took
over her show with 'Do You Want To Shout', and how he definitely has some musical
singer performed 'Girls Just Wanna Have Fun', Time After Time', 'True Colours',
as well as a few new numbers that she will also perform on her current Australian
only complaints were that there wasn't an open bar and that the sausage sizzle
finished about just as fast as it started. The ques for food and drinks were too
long, but we weren't there for bites anyway. We wanted entertainment, and boy
did we get it. Go girl, and thanks to Channel Nine - your still my One also.
we had heaps of fun, and I really look forward to seeing Cyndi's indoor performance
in Sydney at the State Theatre, which will occur on the 31 March and the 1st of
April. A double dose of fun. Can't wait.

Kaufman and Jerry 'The King' Lawler interviewed by David Letterman on The Tonight
Show. This may be the highest rating network television segment of all time. If
not, its very close. Apparently Letterman and his producers were not in on the
act! Jim Carey would later play Kaufman in the 'Man In The Moon' movie.
