Title History

  • SIU Tag Team titles

From Scott Teal: The two guys you have listed as the Memphis version of the Interns is not Bass and Smith. That is actually a photo of Billy Garrett and Jim Starr when they were wrestling in the Carolinas as the Red Raiders. They were also the Medics in Florida, Oklahoma. The photo of the Interns you have listed in Central States (picture is fuzzy so I’m not sure), I think is Starr and Garrett, also, not Starr and Andrews.
