This is the story of the men and women who make up today’s independent wrestling scene. They are top prospects like Jamin Olivencia and Adam Cole; deadly beauties like Crazy Mary Dobson (NXT’s Sarah Logan!) and LuFisto; wily promoters like Mike Quackenbush and DJ Hyde; entrepreneurs like Colt Cabana; and battle-hardened veterans like Mad Man Pondo.
