Vol. 6: The Great Memphis Split

Classic Wrestling Memories Vol. 6

Memphis has always been a hot territory for wrestling, especially in the late 20th Century. Join Seth, Crazy Train, and special guest Dan “The Dragon” Wilson as they talk about the Memphis Territory. Specifically, the split that happened in March of 1977 between Promotors Nick Gulas and Jerry Jarrett. Hear the history behind Memphis dating back to the late 1940s and all the stars that came through that territory for big-money events. People like Jackie Fargo, Tojo Yamamoto, Sputnik Monroe, and many more. Then hear what lead to the parting of ways between Gulas and Jarrett. And of course the rise of WWE Hall Of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler.

As talked about during the show, here are the results of the final show promoted by Gulas in the legendary Mid-South Coliseum, and the first show promoted by Jarrett in the same venue.
