SIDEBAR: I’m not going to pretend I am an expert on Memphis wrestling. I’ve watched random matches of the territory, but my insight on these shows will be coming from new eyes unlike the WWF and WCW programming that I grew up watching as a kid in North Carolina. I have watched the Memphis Heat documentary and I want to let you know that my knowledge is pretty much limited to that documentary, so you may want to look elsewhere if you are searching for recaps with a whole lot of foresight and hindsight into the booking and direction of the promotion. However, I will be posting the episodes I watch and recap from YouTube, so if you are like me and you want to get into Memphis ‘rasslin, then this just might be the way you will want to begin.
