Jerry "The King" Lawler opens a wrestling museum in Memphis, Tenn.
Jerry Lawler's career is already celebrated for the WWE Hall of Famer's myriad accolades and accomplishments, but now "The King" can add another jewel to his crown: He's opened his own museum.
Originally intended as a small display of the WWE Hall of Famer's personal memorabilia in Memphis, Tenn.'s Wynn Automobile, Lawler's endeavor expanded into a full-fledged archive located inside the shop. The museum (which opened this past Saturday with an autograph signing from "The King" himself) houses both personal treasures like Lawler's AWA World Heavyweight Championship and other exhibits devoted to the broader history of professional wrestling. Admission is free to any sports-entertainment fans who make the pilgrimage and the museum offers some memorabilia of its own, such as signed photos of Lawler, for anyone who wishes to purchase a memento.
For any members of the WWE Universe looking to take the trip down to the museum, it is located at 1831 Getwell Road in Memphis, Tenn., and operates from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday.
