Throwback Thursday: Coliseum Classic

With the big Roundhouse Revival right around the corner and brand new Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame shirts fresh off the press, why not take a look back at a Mid-South Coliseum classic?  In Memphis, it doesn’t get any bigger than “Fabulous” Jackie Fargo and Jerry “The King” Lawler.

On October 4th, 1976 – 8,000+ jam-packed the Mid-South Coliseum to watch Jackie Fargo try to take the Championship away from Jerry Lawler.  You’ll be shocked at how this one ends.
