Legendary Memphis Promoter To Honor Proteges!
Legendary Tennessee wrestling promoter Jerry Jarrett returns to Charlotte next month to induct the Rock-n-Roll Express, Midnight Express and Jim Cornette into the Hall of Heroes.
The former wrestler-turned-promoter ran the Memphis territory when Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson were paired together and formed one of the most popular tag teams in the history of wrestling. He also made Cornette a manager a while after his mother, Christine Jarrett, had started him in wrestling as a photographer and ring announcer.
“Jerry Jarrett opened wrestling in Louisville,” said Cornette. “In doing so, he was directly responsible for me becoming a fan, even before I ever dreamed of being in the wrestling business. He is a booking legend. We all spent years learning the business in his company.”
The sixth-annual Hall of Heroes dinner and awards ceremony takes place Friday night, August 2 at the Mid-Atlantic Wrestling Legends Fanfest Weekend in Charlotte.
Others to be honored for their lifetime accomplishments include Magnum T.A., Les Thatcher, Danny Miller and Lars Anderson.
The awards ceremony follows a wonderful dinner buffet that begins at 6 p.m. Many of the honorees, presenters, and featured guests from the weekend will be on hand to share in this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
This event has sold out each of the previous four years. Very few seats remain for this year’s dinner and awards ceremony, so get your tickets now if you want to be part of this memorable evening.
