Memphis Heat: The True Story of Memphis Wrasslin – Clip 1

















Memphis Heat: The True Story of Memphis Wrasslin’ documents the wild and wooly history of Memphis and Mid-South professional wrestling. From the carnival days of cult hero Sputnik Monroe–the heel who integrated the Memphis wrestling audience before the Civil Rights movement–to masked men, midgets, tag teams, female wrestlers, and the rise of bad-guy heel Jerry “the King” Lawler and Jimmy “Mouth of the South” Hart in the 1970s, Memphis Heat delves into a time-forgotten, pre-cable tv world where almost anything happened inside and outside of the wrestling ring and no holds were barred!
