Professional Reviews

Great Book!!
Mark James, webmaster of, has done it again!! Yes, Volume 2 of his Memphis History books was released today and all I can say is – go to his site and buy one!! His first book was “Cards, Matches, Results and Newspaper Clippings Vol 1: 1970 – 1985”. It was great book with tons of fun stuff, but this one I liked much better. It is “Vol 2: The Programs 1972 – 1976” and it is amazing. The fun thing about it is that these are four years leading up to my first year of being a wrestling fan – August, 1977. So, it was like a big trip down pre-memory lane.

The major PLUS for this Volume is that it not only features the programs for every week of those years, but Mark also interviewed Jerry Jarrett, Jimmy Valiant, Bill Dundee, Jimmy Hart, Lance Russell [forward is by him], Randy Hales, Scott Bowden, Billy Wicks, “Big” Jack Eaton, Tim Dills and Dave Millican to help tell the stories. My favorite stuff was reading all the things that Jerry Jarrett had to say. It was very interesting stuff.

Memphis Wrestling History Volume 2: The Programs 1972-1976
Author Mark James has done it again. He has written another tremendous book on Memphis wrestling history. This volume deals with Arena Programs from 1972 to 1976. In addition to viewing all the great arena programs, you get a synopsis of each year from a number of wrestling luminaries such as Jerry Jarrett, Scott Bowden, Jimmy Valiant, Randy Hales and Jimmy Hart. The stories these men relate about Jerry Lawler, Ron Fuller, Robert Fuller, Lou Thesz, Dory Funk Jr, Harley Race, Sam Bass, Mongolian Stomper and Tommy Rich provide information you will not read anywhere else. You'll learn why Jerry Lawler was banished to Florida in 1975, how Tommy Rich got his start in the wrestling business, why Jerry Jarrett considered Robert Fuller a better wrestler than Ron Fuller and how Johnny Rubberman Walker became Mr Wrestling II.
