In this episode we bring you our first part of a series looking at the rich history of Memphis wrestling. Randy takes us back to the 40s, with a little known story of Sam Muchnick attempting to buy the territory before Nick Gulas and Roy Welch did. Then an in-depth look into Billy Wicks, Sputnik Monroe, their legendary stadium match, and Sputnik's civil rights influence. We also go into the greatness of Jackie Fargo, Don and Al Greene, Lance Russell, the split with Jerry Jarrett, and more figures from that era of Tennessee wrestling history!
