It is practical anymore?
I mean the MSC is in a horrible neighborhood nowadays, and with new facilities like the FedEx Forum opening, and The Pyramid down by the river, is wrestling at the MSC practical now?
I don't think it is.
First off, with the talent or lack thereof that Memphis has now, there is no way they can get the building halfway full.
I love the Coliseum and what it stands for in wrestling history, but I seriously am beginning to doubt after the last card which drew near 500 a few weeks ago, if wrestling at the Coliseum has any future.
For that matter, watching the Memphis news, it looks like The Coliseum may have no future. Memphis is talking about demolishing it. I hope not, but I don't see anyway to have the building making money with the Forum going up, and Pyramid becoming the secondary arena for Memphis.
i have a question,when we were young an watched the mid south colliseum on tv it looked huge.it was probably same size as the gardens but seemed bigger.the gardens held 6850 people,but the msc seemd huge.was it?how many did it hold?also is the mcw still around? i look for a website but see none.we never got it in losuisville,or i never see it
