If you missed Memphis Wildfire Wrestling‘s latest event “BRAWL in the FALL”, you missed the return of one of the most successful superstars to ever start his wrestling career in Memphis –
How about this for an answer?
The history runs deep with Jeff Jarrett & Brian Christopher, as they both started their professional wrestling careers in Memphis, TN. A new chapter will be written on Thursday December 18th when the two square off in the first round of the Southern Heavyweight Classic, a tournament created based on the tradition of the Southern Heavyweight Championship. Both men have held the Southern Heavyweight Championship on several occasions in the past.
Another historic rivalry will be renewed at the Southern Heavyweight Classic, as well. Also in the first round, “Superstar” Bill Dundee has challenge Jerry “The King” Lawler – with the winner facing the winner of Jarrett vs Christopher in round two.
Twelve men will enter the tournament – only ONE will reign supreme as the Southern Heavyweight Classic Champion. I am on the opposite side of the bracket… and hope to see any of the four men in the finals.
Next week on Throwback Thursday, we will take a deeper look into the greatest rivalry in Memphis Wrestling history – Jerry Lawler vs Bill Dundee.
