Joining Forces

May 9, 1988

Lawler’s greatest championship victory occurs in his hometown of Memphis, Tenn. when he defeats WWE Hall of Famer Curt Hennig for the AWA World Heavyweight Title. Lawler beats another WWE Hall of Famer, Kerry Von Erich, at AWA SuperClash III in Chicago later that year to win the WCWA World Heavyweight Championship. The titles are then unified to create the USWA Unified World Heavyweight Championship.
