With Halloween only hours away, what better way to celebrate than a special edition of Throwback Thursday. Of course, that comes with a very special clip from Memphis Wrestling’s past.
Typically, we could rewind back to a classic Jerry Lawler versus Leatherface battle. Or maybe we could throw in a classic Freddy clip. He wrestled numerous times in Memphis, as well. Perhaps, we could show a clip of the time Jerry Lawler & Lance Russell traded places? Those are all great clips that we have seen time and time again. But do you remember when all of the wrestlers dressed up and fought matches in-costume?
Let’s rewind to October 30, 1998 – sixteen years ago today – to one of the most unique episodes of Memphis Power Pro Wrestling I’ve ever seen. During this match-up between Batman & Popeye vs. Freddy & Leatherface, try to figure out who’s under each mask!
Have a safe and Happy Halloween, everyone!
