Legends Revealed For AEW Dynamite’s Memphis Tribute

AEW Dynamite

When All Elite Wrestling first announced that they’d be holding a tribute to Memphis wrestling, many fans wondered how that would play out. The “King” of Memphis is firmly in the WWE fold, as are many legends that would generally tie into such an event. Earlier today, AEW revealed the list, a strong list of legends that covers the history of the territory.

The following names will be honored in Southaven at what is being dubbed as AEW Dynamite Anniversary:

  • Angelo Poffo & Randy Savage
  • Lance Russell
  • “Hot Stuff” Eddie & Tommy Gilbert
  • Brian Christopher
  • Austin Idol
  • Dave Brown
  • The Rock & Roll Express
  • “Handsome” Jimmy Valiant

We’ve already seen The Rock & Roll Express once on AEW television, and they’ve brought along Austin Idol from his positon hawking questionable goods during NWA ad breaks. We’ll have to see how the rest of the tribute plays out, and if any of AEW’s various heel factions will decide to spoil the fun.
