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.

To order the book, go to http://stores.lulu.com/memphiswrestling

Lulu.com accepts paypal.

Clawmaster,

Thanks for the kind words. I'm really happy with how the book turned out. Being able to interview the wrestlers I grew up watching was a dream come true. I hope everyone enjoys the new book.

Lulu does accept paypal and credit cards. If any one prefers to pay by money order, they need to contact me thru my website and I'll get them hooked up. THe link is in my sig below.

Can Volume I still be purchased?

Volume II looks like a great read. I'll be sure to add it to my growing wrestling book collection.

Thanks, I really enjoy it here. I do admit to lurking a lot. I really enjoy reading the posts. Claw turned me on to this place a while back and I've been hooked ever since. I only hit 3-5 wrestling forums daily, and this is always one of them!

Wanted to let everyone know I was interviewed about the book on an internet radio show last week (RRO website). Jimmy Valiant was kind enough to go on there with me (and Scott Bowden called in as well.)

If you're interested in hearing it, you can go here to hear the replay:

How does the paperback hold up against the hardcover?

If you're wanting a book for your bookshelf, I highly recommend the hard cover, it looks amazing. If you're like I am, and always looking at your books, I'd recommend the softcover. Both books have the excact same covers (words & images), just one is soft and the other is hard. Both are 8.5x11 in size. 

I bought my soft cover to Vol 1 a year ago and still go thru it weekly as a reference tool, (for some online columns I write). It is still in excellent condition.  The publisher/printer, (lulu.com) , is second to none. They use quality paper for the interior as well as the soft cover.

 

Let me know if this doesn't anwswer your question,

I received mine this past Thursday. Finally got to it over the weekend. What a great job by Mark. Just some fantastic history.

Shipping couldn't have been faster (received maybe less than a week after ordering) with A+ packaging. You don't even half to be a Memphis fan to enjoy this ~ as a fan of oldtime wrestling it was great to see the programs where the NWA Champions like Jack Brisco came to town. I highly recommend this for everyone.
