Staged Scuffle or Real Rivalry? AEW Injects Wrestling Drama into Memphis Grizzlies Game

During a Grizzlies game timeout, Lawler, a longtime Memphis wrestling icon and WWE Hall of Famer, received a Lifetime Achievement Award. As Lawler’s contributions were praised by Dustin Starr and Dave Brown, the mood changed when Jarrett—another legendary wrestler with a long history in Memphis—arrived.

As part of his pitch, Jarrett—who is tied to AEW—introduced his formidable ally, Satnam Singh, to the audience. The next thing that happened was straight-up wrestling drama. Taking advantage of the unexpected moment, Singh grabbed the Lifetime Achievement Award away from an astonished Lawler. The crowd was electrified by this disrespectful conduct, which combined basketball and wrestling drama to create a tense atmosphere.

It wasn’t a completely arbitrary stunt. From their time as Memphis wrestlers, Jarrett and Lawler have a long-standing rivalry. For wrestling fans, this award theft adds another level of intrigue as it might be interpreted as a continuation of that anger toward the kayfabe (fabricated storyline).

Many questions have been raised by the incident’s viral status. Was it a well-planned publicity hoax or a sincere attempt to offend Lawler? While some accounts indicate the Grizzlies knew about the idea, others assert it was completely spontaneous. Whatever the source of the hoax, it has created a lot of publicity for AEW and Lawler.

There were consequences to this melee in Memphis. Reports indicate that security staff may have assisted in separating the persons involved, while the precise specifics are yet unknown. In the immediate following, Singh took part in an exhibition match at halftime, losing to Super Grizz, the mascot of the Memphis Grizzlies. The stress raised by the previous incident was lessened by this humorous conclusion.
