Memphis Wrestling History
Vol. 2: The Programs (1972 – 1976)
by Mark James
Forward by Lance Russell

Most fans today associate Memphis wrestling with WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler, and although it may be true that Lawler helped bring the Memphis territory into a brighter spotlight, there is a lot of great history that paved the road for the “King.” Those trailblazers include Eddie Marlin, Jerry Jarrett, Jackie Fargo, Tojo Yamamoto, Billy Wicks, Sputnik Monroe, and countless others.

Mark James has done his part to teach the students of the wrestling community about Memphis with his website, Memphis Wrestling History (www.memphiswrestlinghistory.com). He has also gone above and beyond the call of duty by writing a book with the same name. I am here to give you my review for Mark’s second book, “Memphis Wrestling History Vol. 2: The Programs 1972-1976.” There are printed contributions from Memphis legends such as Lance Russell, Billy Wicks, Bill Dundee, Jimmy Hart, Jerry Jarrett, Jimmy Valiant, Scott Bowden, and others. The bulk of this 400+ page coffee table-sized book is a huge collection of scanned programs from Memphis. Each program features pictures and text hyping and celebrating the various aspects of the Memphis circuit.

If you’re a big fan of Jerry Lawler, you may have some extra incentive to check out this book, because it covers the unfamiliar era of Lawler’s early years as a professional wrestler. You will quickly realize why Lawler would eventually become the “King” of Memphis wrestling, having learned the ropes from so many extraordinary legends of the industry.
