The night was far younger than we realized. Someone invited us to have a drink at Wild Bill’s, which a local would later call “the last real place in Memphis.”
Memphis’s Broad Avenue Brawl involved chairs, poles, buckets, and plenty of flying bodies. This bar-room wrestling match provided the sort of unregulated fun you could never get at a WWE arena event.
The Memphis dive bar scene is legendary, but not many people know that. We went out every night, and something zany or insane happened every night.
