A weekly podcast with Jerry Jarrett and Sean Reedy going into depth about topics from Jerry’s legendary career!
Booking Memphis Wrestling was a weekly podcast with Jerry Jarrett and Sean Reedy going into depth about topics from Jerry’s legendary career.
If you aren’t familiar with Jerry, here’s a quick backstory from Wikipedia:
Jerry Winston Jarrett (born September 4, 1942) is an American retired professional wrestling promoter and professional wrestler. Along with his long-term business partner Jerry Lawler, Jarrett is a key figure in the history of professional wrestling in the Mid-Southern United States. Described as a “wrestling genius”, he was inducted into the National Wrestling Alliance Hall of Fame in 2009.
Jarrett founded the Memphis, Tennessee-based Continental Wrestling Association in 1977. In 1989, Jarrett merged his promotion with the Dallas, Texas-based promotion World Class Championship Wrestling, creating the United States Wrestling Association, which Jarrett sold to Lawler in 1997. He made another foray into promoting in 2002 when he co-founded NWA:TNA with his son Jeff Jarrett, selling his controlling interest to Panda Energy International later that year.
