Throwback Thursday: Lawler & Dundee return to Mid-South Coliseum

roundhouse revival

When Jerry “The King” Lawler and “Superstar” Bill Dundee return to the Mid-South Coliseum this Saturday, it’ll be under much different terms than in the past.  Although they have a longtime rivalry, they will set their differences aside to help save a building they both made famous together.

Roundhouse Revival is an all-day event in the parking lot of the Mid-South Coliseum and is free to the public.  Along with music, basketball and food – Lawler & Dundee will face the Coliseum Crushers in the day’s main event.  Longtime referee Jerry Calhoun will be there to officiate the match-up.

We know very little about the Coliseum Crushers.  However, we all know how well Lawler and Dundee can work together as a team.  In case you’ve forgotten, let me take you back to 1987 where the duo captured the AWA World Tag Team Titles.  To make it a little sweeter – the victory came inside the Mid-South Coliseum.

I will be reporting live from the Mid-South Coliseum this Saturday and will have free Memphis Wildfire Wrestling tickets.  Memphis in MAYhem takes place next Thursday night (May 28) at Woodland Hills Event Center in Cordova, TN and features a Street Fight between myself (with Maria) and Bill Dundee.  Also, you will have your chance to win free tickets on Cerrito Live.  Cerrito Live airs on Saturday afternoons from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm CT on Sports 56 & 87.7 FM.
