Lawler talks Memphis Wrestling!

----Mike Aldren made reference to this in his post.  I thought I would copy and paste what Jerry Lawler said about the new Memphis promotion.  Speaking of, WNC has some photos from the new tapings - CLICK HERE and if you want to read the complete article on Lawler, then CLICK HERE!!

And he's still crazy about wrestling. Lawler recently started a new TV show called "Memphis Wrestling."

"TV wrestling on Saturday mornings has been a tradition here since I grew up," Lawler said. "We lost it right around Christmas last year."

Lawler wasn't ready for it to end. With the blessing of WWE, he started "Memphis Wrestling," featuring local, independent wrestlers. 

"It's a good looking show, but there's not a lot of money in independent wrestling," he said. "It's a labor of love." 

"Memphis Wrestling" is a lot like the old-school wrestling Lawler started with. The names of the performers aren't as well known, but they're more accessible.
