Grizzlies Pay Tribute to Local Wrestling Past

Memphians get it.

The sweet spot where sports & entertainment meet. Whether on a mat, in a studio or up & down the hardwood, we go against the grain and celebrate our culturally unique style, flair, and an appreciation for a comeback story.

The Main Event uniform revives a beloved intersection of Memphis sports & entertainment for this year’s City Edition.

From the hallowed halls of the Ellis Auditorium and the Mid-South Coliseum to Saturday mornings on WMC TV to the bright lights of FedExForum, Memphis has hosted our fair share of athletes as entertainers and entertainers as athletes.

Our Main Event uniforms pays homage to the entertainers as athletes of the past – all the heels, faces, and kings alike that have made Memphis a wrestling hub for generations.

This season, for 82 games the Grizzlies will climb into the ring and for six of those matches we will don our Main Event uniforms.
