When I first started blogging, I saw a need for someone to give proper coverage to the independent wrestling promotions here in the Midwest. There were half a dozen promotions running just in the Louisville area at that time, and the number grows exponentially as you move out into Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio. It was far too big a task for me to bite off at that time, and I would dare say it’s an even bigger challenge now.
Thankfully, Chad French was crazy enough to take it on himself. He began blogging about wrestling using the blog title, “Chad Is an Idiot,” and I’m sure he felt that way at times trying to get his arms around the Midwest wrestling scene. That said, Chad has proven he is no slouch when it comes to writing about and promoting independent wrestling. His blog is now called the Midwest Territory, and he’s doing a phenomenal job keeping readers informed as to what’s going on across Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, and even Illinois.
Midwest Territory is a must read blog for anyone who wants to get to know the promotions and the wrestlers in the current scene. Chad does feature stories on upcoming shows and regular interviews with the men and women who are ascending the independent ranks. Follow Midwest Territory on Twitter and Facebook, and you’ll get even more posts about upcoming shows in the region. Chad does his best to cover everyone from OVW in Louisville to Rockstar Pro in Dayton to Wrestling Theology Fellowship in Indianapolis and other names and places too numerous to mention. He’s got a great thing going, and he deserves all the credit and support in the world for what he brings to the business.
