Earlier this week, legendary Memphis Wrestling broadcaster Lance Russell celebrated his 89th Birthday. From all of us at MemphiSport.com, we would like to wish Lance a very Happy Birthday with many more to come!
To help celebrate Lance’s Birthday, I’d like to take a look back at one of my personal favorite clips of Lancer himself. This video is not only a Memphis Wrestling Classic, but it is an extremely rare find.
This week’s Throwback Thursday clip features Lance Russell like you’ve never seen him before. Enjoy!

Lance is always golden – even when the roles are reversed. Don’t forget to stop by Lance’s official Facebook page to send your Birthday wishes. Big thanks to our friend Eddie for sharing this footage on Twitter.
