Image result for "memphis wrestling hall of fame"Just over 25 years ago, the struggling USWA held a special "Memphis Memories" event at the Mid-South Coliseum and they drew an impressive 8,300 fans.  The event included the first inductees of the Memphis Wrestling Hall of Fame.  It was an effort to pull some old eyeballs onto their current product.  There is video is available online.

The following year, Memphis Memories II was not quite as successful and two years later the USWA would close shop.

While there have been several attempts by websites and individuals to revive or reboot the Memphis Wrestling Hall of Fame, those two first classes are worth noting.
