On December 18th, Memphis Wildfire Wrestling returned to Minglewood Hall for their Fifth Annual Southern Heavyweight Classic. The event was loaded from the beginning, as they announced a star-studded Round 1 that guaranteed us Lawler vs. Dundee & Christopher vs. Jarrett.
They didn’t disappoint.
This week, Throwback Thursday returns for the fist edition of 2015 to review the tournament to crown a new Southern Heavyweight Classic Champion. There was a capacity crowd on hand at Minglewood Hall, but if you missed the action live – don’t fret. I have all the footage you need, right here!
ROUND 1: “GRAND MASTER SEXAY” BRIAN CHRISTOPHER vs JEFF JARRETT
ROUND 2: JEFF JARRETT vs JERRY “THE KING” LAWLER
FINALS: DUSTIN “FIVE” STARR w/ MARIA vs ACTION JACKSON
So, there you have it. MSL brings home the coveted Southern Heavyweight Classic trophy!
