SARDIS, MS (AP) – Former Memphis wrestling promoter Corey Maclin has died in motor vehicle accident in Mississippi.

The Mississippi Highway Patrol says the 43-year-old Maclin was southbound on Interstate 55 just south of Sardis around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday when his vehicle swerved into oncoming traffic and rolled over, throwing him from the vehicle. Maclin was pronounced dead on the scene.

Maclin was alone in the vehicle.

Maclin was a wrestling promoter in Memphis and formerly worked with Jerry Lawler before the two became embroiled in a trademark lawsuit over the name “Memphis Wrestling.”

Maclin joined the ABC affiliate in Memphis in 2010, where he was a sports anchor for 2 1/2 years.

He also worked for the Memphis Rockers basketball team of the WBL and the Memphis Hounddawgs of the ABA.
