Throwback Thursday: Handsome Jimbo calling into Mempho

The headline says it all – WWE Hall of Famer and Memphis Wrestling legend “Handsome” Jimmy Valiant will be our special guest on Cerrito Live, Saturday afternoon.  This will be the first time we have “Handsome” Jimmy on-air with us and it is sure to be an exciting call. No one in the history of Memphis Wrestling has had more glitz, glamour, enthusiasm and fanfare than the “boy from New York City.”  Even before his time in Memphis, “Handsome” Jimmy & “Luscious” Johnny – The Valiant Brothers set the WWWF on fire by capturing the World Tag Team Championships. Let’s take a look back at the historic career of not only “Handsome” Jimbo – but The Valiant Brothers as a Hall of Fame tag team. We are looking forward to speaking with “Handsome” Jimmy about a number of topics, including his thoughts on our historic Mid-South Coliseum, Roundhouse Revival event on May 23rd, and the upcoming Memphis Wildfire Wrestling event on April 23rd – Return of the Burn. Speaking of Wildfire Wrestling, I have one more clip to share.  This one comes from September 18th, 2014 at Long Live The King.  Maria & I had the honor of interviewing “Handsome” Jimmy Valiant in a segment we call The Five Starr Showcase.  Unfortunately for Valiant, things didn’t go too well for him.  I’m sure he will have something to say about this on Saturday. Along with the exclusive interview with “Handsome” Jimmy Valiant, you will have your chance to win FREE Memphis Wildfire Wrestling tickets.  Be sure to listen live! Cerrito Live airs every Saturday from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm CT on on Sports 56 & 87.7 FM .  If you have any questions you’d like to discuss with “Handsome” Jimmy, feel free to post them here or send them via Twitter @MemphiSport.  Also, be sure to find Jimmy Valiant on Facebook. Don’t Forget:  Memphis Wildfire Wrestling returns next Thursday, April 23rd!  Catch all the action at Woodland Hills Country Club in Cordova, TN.  Already scheduled: Brian Christopher vs Derrick King, Dazzler vs Chris Lexx, R&D vs Action Jackson and Dustin “FIVE” Starr with Maria vs “SUPERSTAR” Bill Dundee!  For the latest info, click here.
