The Jerry Lawler Show Postcard

The Championship Wrestling show in Memphis, taped in the cozy confines of WMC-TV channel 5 studios, was one of the highest-rated local TV wrestling shows ever.

Not only was the wrestling show taped at WMC, but Jerry Lawler's talk show was taped there, too, for its relatively short run in the mid-1980s.

If you wrote in to the studio, they would send you a postcard with a picture of Jerry on the set on the front of the card, and the WMC-TV5 logo on the back. Notice the cancellation date of September 16, 1985.
