Jerry Lawler Filmed New TV Pilot for Memphis Wrestling Show

Posted By Caroline Walsh on 08/07/17


During a recent podcast interview with Cerrito Live (via PWInsider), WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler revealed that he filmed a pilot for a new TV series, Jerry Lawler’s Classic Memphis Wrestling. If the show is picked up, it would broadcast classic Memphis material from the old show and live events from Mid-South Wrestling.

Lawler was joined by Bill Dundee for the pilot. The show has several possible homes locally, but nothing is set in stone for the series as of yet. While speaking during the interview, Lawler also discussed the idea that WWE could air the series after its debut episodes are broadcast in Memphis. Regarding the ownership of the Memphis library, Lawler said that he has much of the old Memphis library with old three quarter inch tapes, VHS tapes, and DVDs. According to him, he technically owns the material, and he apparently could pull content off YouTube and use it if need be.
