The late “Sensational” Sherri Martel‘s son (Jared) & best friend/long-time travel partner (Dawn), along with WCWA “Dream Reunion 2” promoter, Rob Reeder, were the very special guests on this past week’s live edition of Monday Night Mayhem (06/18/07), which can be heard in streaming audio every week (hosted by The Big Mosh, Blade, & The Angry Hero, and heard LIVE at 8PM ET/7PM CT every Monday night) exclusively on The Monday Night Mayhem Radio Network (www.MondayNightMayem.com, www.OnlineWorldOfWrestling.com, www.ProWrestlingPress.com, www.AllWNYRadio.com, www.Showdown,net, & www.AudioWrestling.com).
This very special tribute to the late WWE Hall Of Famer return to The Mayhem airwavesÂ is now available in Real Audio.
Here are some of the highlights from the interview provided by The Mayhem’s official recapper, PWUSandman 41 & The Mayhem’s co-host, The Big Mosh.
*Sherri’s son (Jared) & her long-time friend, travel partner,Â and sister (Dawn), & Rob respectfully thanked The Big Mosh, Blade, & The Angry Hero for having them on the show.
*Dawn will be in Alabama this Saturday and will collect cards & donations for the services.
*Funeral arrangements are still up in the air right now.
*There will be a closed service for the wrestlers in the business, and the fans will be able to join for the precession. There will not be a public viewing.
*The fans can also see the precession at the grave site.
*Dawn said that her & Sherri always traveled and did everything together, and that Sherri was a great person who loved her fans. She would always spend time to meet with her fans. Dawn said that it is devastating to her that she isn’t going to be with Sherri after 18+ years of being together.
*Dawn & Jared will be at all of Sherri’s future bookings to make up for Sherri’s passing. Both of them will be present to acceptÂ Sherri induction into the WCWA “Dream Reunion” Hall Of Fame this October in Kokomo, IN (more information can be found at www.DreamReunion.com).
*She said Sherri was very nervous during her WWE Hall Of Fame induction ceremony and didn’t know what to wear, and that Dawn had to calm her down before the ceremonies took place.
*Jared said that he was with his mom when they traveled around, but was never shown until WrestleMania weekend last year, when she was inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame.
*He said they were like best friends when they traveled together, and that her mom truly loved the business.
*Jared talked about how his mom was very tough — even before she died she was still as tough as she used to be, and would put somebody in line if they needed it.
*Dawn said that the business has definitely changed since SherriÂ first started,Â because she has not seen anyone as tough or work as hard as Sherri did.
*Jared talked about the times that he spent with his mom, as well as the times that he had to travel without Sherri to make it to the locations that she needed to be in.
*Both of them are getting a tattoo of Sherri to show how important Sherri is to the family — it’s the way for them to “stay together” with Sherri forever.
*Sherri & Jared talked about the Mr. McMahon “death” storyline, and how they continued after Sherri’s passing. The family is indeed upset at this, but said that Sherri would have wanted the show to go on anyway.
*In closing, Jared & Dawn want the fans to remember Sherri for what she did for wrestling, her fans, & how she was instead of her recent passing/how she is now.
