(Memphis) Move over Elvis, there’s another king setting up shop in Memphis.
Jerry “The King” Lawler is opening a wrestling museum with all the memories and things he’s collected over his
The original idea was for Lawler to bring some of his
“In May of 1988, I won the AWA World Heavy Weight Championship,” said Lawler, as he showed News Channel 3 his championship belt.
He has collected a lot of memories during his 43 years as the king of professional wrestling, like taking on Actor Andy Kaufman in the ring.
“That was probably the highlight of my career and maybe one of the most famous matches in wrestling history,” said Lawler.
There is plenty more to see, like the king’s ring costumes, as well as articles, even some of Lawler’s published artwork. Lawler says it’s a place for people who grew up watching Memphis wrestling.
“This is just the spot where some people can come and relieve some of the memories,” he said. “We have classic matches going on the TV here all the time and will see a lot of things that will bring back a lot of memories to them.”
The wrestling museum is free of charge to walk through it.
There are things like autographed pictures available for sale.
As people come from all over the world for one king, they can now carve out some time for another.
“There is a lot of stuff, you could spend a lot of time in here, so if you’re really a wrestling fan or a Jerry Lawler fan, there is a lot to see,” Lawler said.
The museum, located at 1831 Getwell Road, will have its grand opening Saturday, March 30th at 9:00am.
Lawler will be at the museum from 1:00p-4:00p.
After that, the museum will be open Monday through Saturday 9:00a to 6:00p.
