Here is the great Lance Russell at his best, and he was at his best every week, and that's why Memphis Wrestling not only endured, but prevailed. Everybody in this clip -- Ric Flair, Lawler, Eddie Marlin, Jimmy Hart, Lance and Dave -- are why Memphis Wrestling is unique:
You're totally right about Lance and Dave. In their way, they were the real stars of Memphis Wrestling, that and Lance's Baxter suit.
With all due respect, the Diamond Ring and Cadillac Man needed no help to pin anybody.
Jackie Fargo was a great wrestler. He beat some of the best. He beat Dick the Bruiser right here in Memphis when Bruiser was in his prime. But he NEVER would have beaten Sputnik Monroe. He'd have given him a good match, though.
