Old School Memphis Rasslin’ in Tunica…

I would be remiss if I didn’t take a few minutes to mention that I had an awesome time the other night in Tunica, Mississippi hanging out w/ some of my childhood heroes! I’ve mentioned several times in the past that while some kids were into Bugs Bunny & the Roadrunner, my Saturday mornings were consumed w/ Championship Wrestling on Channel 5 (hosted by Lance Russell & Dave Brown). See my old blog posts here: Saturday Mornings Meant Rasslin’ and Memphis Heat: The True Story of Memphis Rasslin’.

Well, fast forward 40 years and the wrestling industry isn’t near as entertaining as it once was, in fact it sort of sucks. Unless you were around back in the day you really don’t have a yardstick to measure how the product that’s on television today has declined. Long story short, there was a special event this past weekend in Tunica that brought in a lot of the old timers that used to beat the crap out of each other when I was a kid. The only difference is many of them are getting on up there in years, for example, Bill Dundee will be turning 70 in a matter of weeks. Granted, many of the guys can’t get around like they used to back in the day but it was just good seeing them and being able to hangout.

I will hopefully have an announcement in the coming weeks related to wrestling & Pleth, so stay tuned. In the meantime, enjoy some of the pics from this weekend…
