Memphis Wildfire Wrestling returns to Minglewood Hall tonight for their annual event Force of July. Memphis Wrestling stars have made appearances on local television stations & radio programs over the course of the last few weeks, but none more exciting than yesterday’s appearance on Fox 13’s Good Morning Memphis.
With Memphis Wrestling returning to Channel 13 for the first time since 1977, this week’s Throwback Thursday features MSL’s friend & host of Good Morning Memphis Ernie Freeman. Ernie plays the role of Lance Russell or Dave Brown, as Maria & I are interrupted by a fired-up “Superstar” Bill Dundee.
Dundee gives a short Channel 13 Memphis Wrestling history lesson, as he mentions wrestling there in 1975 with guys like Don & Al Greene, Jackie Fargo and Jerry Lawler. Among all the commotion, Dundee even threatens to knock Ernie out!
Let’s take a look:
Memphis Wildfire Wrestling’s Force of July takes place tonight at Minglewood Hall in Memphis, TN. Belltime is 7:00PM. I will wrestle Bill Dundee with Maria in my corner for what is being billed as the “Star Spangled Challenge”. In the main event, Jerry Lawler is set to square off against “Big Poppa Pump” Scott Steiner in their first meeting ever. WWE will have a film crew in Memphis for the event.
Can’t get enough of Memphis Wildfire Wrestling? Here are a few interviews leading up to the big event.
Fun Facts: The feud between Bill Dundee and I really started when I joined him on his radio program, several weeks back. Things got a little heated, just as they did on Good Morning Memphis. Here’s the exclusive footage taken by the producer behind the glass – Starr joins Dundee’s show.
