The Sputnik Monroe

...for our guests that are ready to wrestle down a burger!


Sputnik Monroe was an American professional wrestler from the mid-1940s through the early 1970s. Although Monroe was a headliner in many territories, he was an especially noteworthy figure in Memphis cultural history. During a period where segregation was the norm at public events, he, as the biggest wrestling draw at the time, refused to perform unless black patrons were allowed to sit in any seat at the Ellis Auditorium.
