Memphis Wrestling was an American professional wrestling promotion based in Memphis, Tennessee.

History

Memphis Wrestling evolved from an earlier short-lived promotion called Memphis Championship Wrestling.

In 2019, Dustin & Maria Starr with the help of David Marquez & United Wrestling Network to launch Championship Wrestling From Memphis for WLMT-TV CW30 Memphis

Television

The Memphis Wrestling in-studio television show, Memphis Wrestling: Home of Rhythm and Bruise, was broadcast weekly on WLMT (CW30), the Memphis, Tennessee affiliate of The CW Television Network, and is produced in the WLMT studio. It was originally broadcast every Saturday morning at 11 AM CT, beginning on May 17, 2003. In 2006, due to numerous conflicts with other Saturday morning broadcasting commitments, such as college football, the weekly broadcast moved to 10 PM CT and was renamed Memphis Wrestling Prime Time. The promotion also aired internationally on the Fight Network (UK & Ireland) in Europe until the channel went bankrupt, and on the Fight Network in Canada.

As of January 2008, Memphis Wrestling was running repeats of previously-aired shows.

On August 9, 2008, Memphis Wrestling returned to its 11 AM Saturday spot, now on channel 50.

The company closed down in 2014.
