Some of Lance Russell's greatest moments

Lance Russell along with Dave Brown were the announcers on Championship Wrestling in Memphis, TN. With a career spanning more than fifty years, Russell was arguably one of the most recognizable voices in professional wrestling.

He first began announcing matches at WHBQ channel 13 before heading up the long-running Saturday morning wrestling program on WMC channel 5 with Dave in 1977.
Russell even caught himself up in the action from time to time, including one match no one will ever forget: The time comedian Andy Kaufman stepped in the ring.

Another classic moment? The Tupelo concession stand brawl. Institutionalized jars of ketchup and mustard were thrown across the arena.

In honor of Lance Russell, I have compiled some of my favorite Lance Russell moments:

Russell was a wrestling announcer in Memphis for decades, calling matches alongside Dave Brown at WMC Action News 5.

Let's take a look at some of the defunct toy retailers of yesteryear. Where was your favorite place to shop for action figures, dolls and board games? | By MeTV Staff |September 6, 2016

My Thoughts on Thirteenth Doctor Casting

So, the new Doctor has been cast. The role will go to Jodie Whittaker, a female. The internet, of course, has lost its mind. The fans have divided into two camps -- those who love it and those who hate it. They also hate each other... violently. If someone in one camp suspects you of being in the other camp expect to eviscerated immediately! The only losers are the people caught in the crossfire of this internet war, those who aren't on the bandwagon or ready to quit watching, those who innocently want to wait and see if the show actually improves because of this.
