Memphis Wrestling and it's legacy was celebrated at last night's Memphis Grizzlies basketball game.  The entire game was wrestling-themed with fans being given a free Grizzlies wrestling mask as they entered.

During half-time, Jerry Lawler, accompanied by Jimmy Hart, defeated Sean Waltman, accompanied by Scott Hall in a special match on a ring that was brought courtside.

Everyone involved signed at the game, as did legendary Memphis wrestling announcers Lance Russell and Dave Brown.

A number of highlights from the evening can be seen at The Grizzlies' website by clicking here.

Gotta wonder if that won't be the answer to a trivia quedtion one day. "What was the last match called by Lance Russell and Dave Brown?"

Lance Russell turns 90 this weekend. Probably the greatest announcer in the history of the business. He never got himself over at the expense of the talent.

They don't make announcers like that anymore.

Lance is getting honored at Cauliflower Alley next month with Lawler presenting. I have to miss this year and hope he enjoys himself enough to return. One of the guys I have wanted to chat with about television moreso than wrestling. He has sent email replies that show he enjoys interacting with people even today.

That ring was no closer to ringside than the City of Juneau, Alaska.  :)
Looks like it was set up on the third level or the club section.
