Lawler vs Kaufman: From Monday Night in Memphis to Late Night with David Letterman (Medium to XXXXL)

$26.00 - $29.50

One Saturday morning '80s favorite collides with an upstart Late Night '82 icon in this classic illustration by artist Travis Heckel for the controversial last episode of the KFR Podcast.

Considered not only one of the greatest wrestling angles of all time but also one of the finest pieces of performance art in history, Jerry Lawler and Andy Kaufman pulled off the work of a lifetime, first with their infamous bout in Memphis in April 1982 to their appearance later that year on Late Night With David Letterman, a talk show still in its infancy when the Slap Heard 'Round the World knocked the song-and-dance man to the moon and freaked out the nervous young host whose only exposure to wrestling in Indiana was Dick the Bruiser.

On the left sleeve, is Heckel's depiction of Andy in his trademark Hannah-Barbarian™ style.

This will likely be the last ever KFR shirt, so don't be a fuc#kin' a%shole and miss it. At this price, you'd be cuckoo to pass on this unique shirt that's perfect you and the rasslin' fans in your life this holiday season.

Specify color when ordering please: Heather Red, 100% Cotton Black, Heather Blue, 100% Cotton Royal Blue.

The Anvil 980 is made with vintage-soft cotton but its sturdy cotton with high-stitch density ensure this sure will last as long as Lawler's reign. With a tubular construction, the 100% cotton versions are less fitted than most other tees we've sold in past, with the exception of Heather Blue and Heather Red, which are 65% Poly.

Either way, this shirt fits even better than our American Apparel offerings and it's a bit cheaper too, which enables me to add the Andy graphic on the left shoulder and keep the price point down.

Fabric weight: 4.3 oz/yd² (145.79 g/m²)
