If you are a fan of Memphis wrestling or old school territory pro wrestling you will enjoy my recent podcast on Pro Wrestling Radio. I was joined by Memphis wrestling historian and author Mark James as we went back in time and talked about my favorite territory in wrestling history.

We hit on all of the memorable moments, famous promos, legendary brawls, and classic wrestlers that came through Memphis and made their mark in history.

– Jerry Lawler, Lawler vs. Bill Dundee and whether they truly got along or not

– Hulk Hogan in Memphis, famous Memphis managers specifically Jimmy Hart
