Jerry “The King” Lawler launches wrestling museum in Memphis


Jerry “The King” Lawler has opened up a wrestling museum in his home town of Memphis, Tennessee, with a bunch of his wrestling memorabilia put on display.

The museum – launched yesterday – is located at Wynn Automotive at 1831 Getwell Road and has a free entrance for walk-throughs. Merchandise and other items are available for sale.

“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 told WREG TV, the local CBS affiliate.

The museum will be open Mondays to Saturdays from 9AM to 6PM.
