Booking Memphis Wrestling with Jerry Jarrett

The conversation goes into Jerry's time mentoring Bill Dundee and Dutch Mantell and the success they had on their own, what he learned from Eddie Graham, a discussion of what makes a real money-drawing heel, and why Jimmy Hart was so successful and integral to the territory for so many years. If you're a Memphis fan, you will want to hear this discussion to understand why exactly it was so great.
