Find out why Andy Kaufman was a such a fan of the Memphis wrasslin' scene
23 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Memphis, TN... Out of the culture that created Rock n' Roll and great BBQ also came its distinctive brand of wrasslin'. It's where Andy Kaufman battled all comers (of the female persuasion), became "Intergender Champion of the World" until he was piledriven by his nemesis, Jerry "The King" Lawler. Well, even before that, before there was Facebook and the internet, The Coliseum was the place to be Monday night, often packing in over 10,000 spectators!! This film covers it all from Sputnik Monroe forward. A must see for wrestling fans, Memphis-philes, and fans of the curious and strange. Made with real love and appreciation.
