JONESBORO, Ark. – The new A-State men’s basketball coach will wrestle along with list of legends from Memphis wrestling, including the “King,” this year in Jonesboro.
The Legends of Memphis Wrestling Reunion show will be on October 21, 2017, at the Earl Bell Community Center in Jonesboro. The event is presented by THE BIG 107.9 KFIN – NEA’s Radio Station – and Automax of Jonesboro.
VIP tickets go on sale at 10AM on Friday morning at KFIN.com, Brandon Baxter wrote in a post on his page (below). The event will feature “The King” Jerry Lawler, “The Universal Heart Throb” Austin Idol, “Wildfire” Tommy Rich, “Superstar” Bill Dundee, “Dangerous” Doug Gilbert, Randy Hales, Derrick King, and the stars of MACW Wrestling!
Arkansas State Men’s Basketball Coach Mike Balado will also be stepping into the ring in a wrestling match. Balado will team with Brandon Baxter to wrestle Derrick King and Randy Hales. Hales wrote this stinging Facebook post on Thursday morning targeting the men’s basketball coach.
“I first stepped into a Jonesboro Wrestling ring when I was 13 years old to ring announce,” Hales wrote. “As I near my 56th birthday, I return to my home town October 21, this time in a feature match on this super show against Brandon Baxter and the new head basketball coach at ASU. All I will say now is that Brandon will regret this decision and the Coach will not have a great introduction to Jonesboro or Memphis Wrestling.”
This will mark five years since the live heart attack Jerry “The King” Lawler suffered on Monday Night Raw. He will face “Wildfire” Tommy Rich in a wrestling match in front of the live, raucous Jonesboro crowd.
Five years ago today, a very real moment happened on live TV to the King. He will return to Jonesboro this year. https://t.co/bKGxq8IGkB
