For decades, Memphis wrestling was an integral part of the Bluff City's popular culture. Performers inspired love and hatred, passion and rage. "Legends of Memphis Wresting" includes bios on unforgettable stars such as Sputnik Monroe, Al and Don Greene, Jimmy Valiant, Tommy Rich, Austin Idol, Bill Dundee, Jerry Lawler, and many others. In the words of Lance Russell, "It's time for another BIG day of championship wrestling."
Commenting on the book, Southern wrestling historian David Williamson noted, "There is a lot of historical information in the book, not just about the wrestlers' time in Tennessee. You will be entertained AND learn."
