Pro Wrestling Revolver Arrives in Indiana

There are many promotions today who strive to be old school. They look for and book wrestlers who can work Memphis style. They strive to present wrestling the way it was. There’s even a delightfully fun group in Ohio that presents wrestling in the late 19th century format.

Pro Wrestling Revolver is not that type of show. There’s a lot of variety to be sure, but it’s an evening of modern wrestling at its most modern, filled with hard hits, high spots, steel chairs, comedy wrestling, and yes, a good helping of the flippy “stuff.” It’s a promotion that gives you dream match ups and odd pairings you never would have imagine that work better than you’d ever expect. It’s a promotion where a camping tent can become a title holder. It is, as advertised, a show “for our generation, by our generation,” as founder “The Draw” Sami Callihan made clear before the show even started.

“I know you all have phones,” he said. “Take ‘em out. Go on Twitter and follow @pwrevolver. We want you to take pictures. We want you to take video. If you want to stream the whole show, that’s fine. Tag it with #5000candlesinthering. That’s the only way this thing grows!”

That’s not the normal speech you hear at a show. Not even the smaller promotions who have deals with High Spots (as Revolver does) want you to film anything. Sami’s love for his promotion, his wrestling family, and his fans comes through in everything he does at Revolver. It was clear the fans at the Jeffersonville Arena last night took to Sami’s way of doing wrestling during their Indiana debut Tuesday night, and Revolver proved to be a welcome new addition to the Southern Indiana scene.

Later in the show, Sami commented on one of the criticisms he heard when he started Revolver. “They said, ‘He’s only doing this so he can book his friends!’ Well, I happen to think my friends are the best damn wrestlers in the world!”

It’s a bold boast, but how can you argue when your opening match is an Impact X-Division Championship bout between Rich Swann and Trey Miguel? Neither man is a stranger to the Arena, and they put on the fast, frenetic match fans expected from this dream combination. They were quickly followed by another one on one outing between Jake Crist and Project Monix. Crist, like Callihan, is part of Impact’s heel faction oVe, but here in the area where he cut his teeth with brother Dave as Irish Airborne and then OI4K, Jake can do no wrong. Despite the heat, fans were all in for this match and 100% behind Crist.

Two of RISE Wrestling’s top stars clashed in a match between Nevaeh and Kimber Lee. It’s hard to understand why WWE signed and then dropped Kimber Lee because she’s so good at everything she does. Despite the rising temps in the building, Kimber and Nevaeh put on a very strong match that proved Revolver’s women’s contingent does not take a back seat to the men.

One thing Revolver created that is truly unique is the Open Scramble Championship, a title defended in a match that can have any number of competitors at one time. Tuesday night, the Open Scramble title was defended by a camping tent. Yes, this is where the old time fans would have left if they hadn’t already, which is a shame because “Tent” and the eight men in the ring with Tent put on a great show. Arena favorites like Tyler Matrix and ZDP mixed it up with people like the 1 Called Manders and Jake Manning in a fast, frenetic bout that ended with Tent pinning Manning. Manders in particular impressed me in this bout. It’s been a year and a half since I first saw the former Iowa Hawkeye, and he’s turning into a very powerful wrestler.

A Fatal Four Way to determine a new Number One Contender for the Revolver Championship closed the first half of the show, featuring Caleb Konley, Impact’s Ace Austin, AEW Casino Battle Royale competitor Acey Romero, and the always impressive Jessica Havok. Arena fans have watched Austin bloom into a star over the last 18 months at PPW, and he proved to be a fan favorite, but all four competitors impressed in this one. Romero got the pin on the fearless Havok to become the Number One Contender.

After intermission, fans were treated to an IWA Mid-South Jr. Heavyweight Championship bout between Louisville’s Logan James and Cincinnati’s Aaron Williams. Williams has been a long-time fixture in the area with IWA Mid-South and previously D1W. He’s also no stranger to Sami and the rest of the Dayton crew thanks to his long-time association with Rockstar Pro. How this guy is not signed to one of the top promotions, I’ll never understand. James looked equally impressive even in defeat as Williams defended his title successfully.

The evening’s long tag team match as a three team affair that spilled out into the crowd, much to the delight of the fans. I have to admit, I was disappointed that Dave Crist was paired with Madman Fulton in this match instead of his brother, but Dave and Fulton proved to be an entertaining comedy duo. Impact fans have yet to see just how truly talented Dave is. He had the fans roaring as he berated the big man for using him as a weapon, spinning him overhead to knock down opponents and tossing him over the ropes into four other men. Crist played to the crowd at every opportunity. “Does my safety mean anything to you people? Huh?” From his facial reactions when he takes a boot to the face to his own death-defying aerial maneuvers, Crist can do no wrong.

The Iron Manager J.T. Davidson accompanied Sami Callihan to the ring for his Revolver Championship match with Larry D. The crowd was split on this affair, but as with every other match, most fans could go either way in the end. It was a hard-hitting contest that brought the fans to their feet in the end as the long-time veteran Larry D kept the title from “The Draw.”

Callihan called for the cameras to be shut off while the ring was set for the main event, and Callihan thanked the fans once more for their energy and attendance. He also promised Revolver would be returning in a few months in the hopes that Jeffersonville would become a regular part of their circuit. Two prize packages were then given away to fans – one by raffle, and the other given to the fan who posted the best tweet using the evening’s hashtag #5000candlesinthering. Both fans walked away with Revolver prize packages including T-shirts, stickers, and a copy of every DVD on the sales table.

A Bunkhouse Brawl between MLW’s Mance Warner, Impact’s Zachary Wentz, and the enigmatic Jimmy Jacobs closed the show. As strange as that combination sounds, it was a fantastic way to close out the show with all three men brawling into the crowd and using everything from haystacks to particle board as props. Warner has mega-star written all over him and sounds like a modern version of Steve Austin playing to the crowd, but it was the under-rated Zachary Wentz who took the win.

Manders returned to the ring with a couple of beers to celebrate with Wentz, and Wentz rewarded him with a Stone Cold Stunner. At that point, DJ Eric Montgomery hit Stone Cold’s theme music, and Wentz proceeded to stun everyone from Dave Crist to Madman Fulton to a few fans invited to join the fun.

“Cut the cameras!” Callihan bellowed over the microphone. “This is not part of the video! Vince will sue the hell out of us!”

For what it’s worth, I asked a friend who was backstage what the atmosphere was like in the locker room. I was told it was one of the most energetic locker rooms my friend had ever seen. Everyone working for Revolver loves what they are doing and who they are doing it with. It’s more family than business, and the wrestlers were having as much fun as the fans.

Revolver’s home base is Des Moines, Iowa, where my in-laws live. For close to a year, I’d been dropping hints to my wife that I’d like to plan a trip West to visit family that would coincide with Revolver’s schedule. I still want to make that trip, but I was quite delighted Revolver decided to open shop ten minutes from home. This is one of the most energetic and exciting indy federations, and for fans who like the high spots and fluffy “stuff,” this is must-see wrestling. Sami Callihan has a good thing going, providing a showcase and a launching pad for some of the best talent in pro wrestling. It’s a Dayton, Ohio centric roster, and I’ve long believed Dayton is where some of the biggest stars of tomorrow are being made. I can’t wait to see where Revolver and this talented roster of rising stars go next.

Pain Torture Agony – The Story of a Legacy of Greatness

When you attend a wrestling fan convention as a vendor, it’s always a crap shoot. Sometimes you do well. Sometimes you spend more than you make. By all accounts this year’s Cauliflower Alley Club Reunion was a success for all the wrestling authors in attendance, but especially for Ron Hutchison, who released his autobiography Pain Torture Agony at the Reunion. I sold nearly 100 books in three days. Ron sold out of his 75 by lunch time on day one.

I had never met Ron and did not know his story before I attended CAC. I knew he was involved with CAC, and I had read a few emails from him regarding Dr. D’s seminar at the Reunion, but it wasn’t until I picked up a copy of the book for myself through Crowbar Press that I learned the rest of the story.

Ron Hutchison was a kid who lived his dream and became a professional wrestler. Hailing from Ontario, he trained not in the Hart dungeon but with Sweet Daddy Siki and Johnny Powers at Sully’s Gym in Toronto. Although small in stature, he earned the respect of many promoters, including Jack Tunney, and worked as an enhancement wrestlers a number of times for the WWF in the early days of the Wrestlemania era.

Hutchison’s legend really began when he stepped up and took Johnny Powers’ place as a trainer at Sully’s. Just as Stu Hart had once been the go-to trainer for Canadian dreamers, Ron became the man in the East. It started with Adam Copeland, who won free tuition to train with Ron thanks to a handwritten essay reprinted in Ron’s book. Adam’s life long friend Jay Reso followed, and when the two broke out as Edge and Christian for WWF, more students followed, including Trish Stratus, Beth Phoenix, Gail Kim, Sinn Bodhi, and Traci Brooks.

Pain Torture Agony is a wonderful account of Ron’s career in professional wrestling. It is at times painfully honest and hilariously funny as Ron opens up about everything from his falling out with Siki to his devotion to the Cauliflower Alley Club to his involvement with Carmen Electra’s Naked Women’s Wrestling League. (Yep, that was a real thing.) Ron’s love for the business and even more for his students shines through, and Ron is equally proud of those who didn’t “make it big” as he is for the Hall of Fame and CAC Award winners. There are personal testimonials sprinkled throughout the book from Edge, Christian, Trish, Gail, Beth, Sinn, and many more wrestling personalities from Ron’s past.

Throughout the book, Ron hints often at how tough and demanding he could be with his trainees, including the “Pain Torture Agony” training regimen that gives the book its name. If there’s one thing I came away wanting, it was the chance to sit down with one of Ron’s old pupils to hear more about Ron’s “dark side” as a trainer. This isn’t a criticism of the book, mind you, but a genuine curiosity to hear more. Pain Torture Agony made me a fan, and I suspect there are more great stories yet untold. Whether Ron has a second book in him, or whether his students will do the talking, I look forward to hearing more about one of the greatest trainers of his generation!

Pain Torture Agony is available from Crowbar Press. Click here to order in the US or Canada.

AEW’S MVP Upstages WWE Legend

Jon Moxley’s appearance at the end of last night’s Double Or Nothing show was an absolutely amazing way to end the show. He laid out Chris Jericho and then destroyed Kenny Omega as the show went off the air. It was a moment many wrestling fans were hoping would happen, and AEW showed they could deliver on such a big moment.

I am not here to write about Moxley, however.

AEW’s MVP, their most important signee, is not Jon Moxley. It is not Chris Jericho, not any members of the Elite. The most important guy on the roster is the reason the Buy In show opened not with an “A-E-Dub” chant, but a torrent of boos. Go back and watch the tape; the video package fades out, and the crowd is booing like they just saw Brock Lesnar win the Money in the Bank.

It caught me off guard, until I saw who was in the ring, his tartan scarf still wrapped around his neck, telling the fans they should be grateful to be in his presence.

Then I understood the boos.

It was MJF.

MJF is the guy who nearly beat Hangman Page in the Casino Battle Royale. He’s the guy who interrupted Bret Hart during the presentation of the new championship belt and dumped on Bret’s signature catch phrase. He’s the guy who tucked tail and ran when Jungle Boy, Jimmy Havoc, and Hangman Page ganged up on him.

He’s also the best barometer for how this company will fare in the coming years.

I had the “misfortune” of having a gimmick table next to his back in the fall at a Terry Harper show in Jeffersonville. I had to sit and listen to him at intermission berating fans, telling them they were fat and stupid and not allowed to buy anything from him. This is not a product of some creative team. MJF arrives in AEW a full-realized jerk and a half who doesn’t understand why you boo him because he truly believes he is doing YOU a favor by letting you see him wrestle.

In a world where AEW did not exist, MJF would have been signed by WWE. They would have given him a new name and persona. They would have forced scripts into his hands written by non-wrestling people. Despite these hindrances, they would have made a lot of money with him. MJF is a personality on the level of a Kevin Owens or The Miz who will not be ignored. I have no doubt he could have taken whatever WWE Creative threw at him and turned it into gold.

He doesn’t have to do that in AEW. He can continue being his smug, repugnant self. He can continue pushing buttons, unscripted and unfiltered. AEW has promised wrestlers control over their own characters and promised fans no script writers. If they deliver on both promises, MJF will have the leeway to become their top heel in no time. He will be the man fans love to hate more than any other. He will sell tickets and pay–per-views.

He will be the embodiment of what AEW promised to deliver.

Time will tell if AEW truly has staying power and if they are willing to give wrestlers the freedom they promised. I’m pulling for them, and even though he’s a stuck up, self-absorbed head case in the ring – I am pulling for MJF. I cannot wait to see him fight Page, Cody, Jericho, Omega, Moxley, and anyone else who gets in his way of becoming the AEW Champion.

I love to hate this guy. I look forward to hating his guts for years to come.

Rejects vs. Baka Gaijin – Let’s Make This Dream Match Happen!

Fans have dream matches. So do wrestlers. At a recent show in the Jeffersonville Arena, Reed Bentley of the Rejects confided in me that he and John Wayne Murdoch had an ultimate dream match they really wanted to make happen.

The Rejects vs. Baka Gaijin

For those who don’t know, Baka Gaijin (which translates to “Stupid Foreigners”) is the tag team of Mad Man Pondo and 2 Tuff Tony. They were the forerunners, the originators if you will, of the smash mouth, over the top fighting style that has become the signature of the Rejects. When you see a Rejects match, you’re going to get very little scientific wrestling. You’re going to see hard punches, steel chairs, tables, mayhem, weapons. The phrase “everything but the kitchen sink” would apply, except for the fact that if Reed and John could get at the kitchen sink, they’d gladly use it too.

Tony and Pondo are cut from the same mold. They light to fight. They like to bleed. They’re not afraid to get crazy. They’re also deceptively athletic for two big guys who have been going hard for a couple of decades now. If you’ve never seen that backflip 2 Tuff Tony does off the ropes, it’ll make your jaw drop.

The Rejects have told Tony and Pondo they will fight any time, anywhere, and even put their GCW Tag Team Championship on the line. Pondo, for his part is all for it. But Tony, who also happens to own the Arena where Reed and I discussed this match, is holding out.

Reed and I discussed this situation and we agreed something needs to be done to make this much happen. So here’s what you, as fans can do.

  1. Copy and paste the letter printed below into an email and fill the blank at the bottom with your name.
  2. Address the email to Reed Bentley, thereedbentley@gmail.com
  3. Click send.

Reed will collect your emails, print them out, and present them in the ring some time in the near future to demonstrate to Tony just how badly the fans want this match. If enough fans respond, how can he say no?

Copy, paste, and email, fans. Let your voice be heard. Let’s make The Rejects vs. Baka Gaijin a reality!

 

Dear 2 Tuff Tony,

I am writing to request that you accept the challenge issued by The Rejects, John Wayne Murdoch and Reed Bentley, to a tag team match with your tag partner Mad Man Pondo. This colossal match is a must-see for me and all your legions of fans, and if you choose to accept it, I hereby vow to:

a. Share the advertising for this epic, Godzilla vs. King Kong like match up all over my social media;

b. Be in attendance for the show, wherever and whenever it takes place, and/or watch it on the Internet wherever and whenever it is made available to view;

c. Grab my s**t and get out of the way when I see the action coming my way;

d. Stream live or share afterwards my reaction to what promises to be the most brutal, over the top, mind blowing, head smashing, table shredding, chair mangling, knockdown, drag out wrestling affair of all time.

Thank you in advancing for responding and accepting my challenge to come and get your whipping at the hands of John Wayne Murdoch and Reed Bentley.
Sincerely yours,

The People You Most Want to See at Starrcast II

Who are you looking forward to meeting at Starrcast II? Whose autograph do you want most? Whose Q&A are you most excited to hear?

Let me clue you in on the people you most want to see this weekend. They were the superstars of the first Starrcast, and they’re some of the greatest people in the wrestling business. They are:

Bill Apter

RD and Blade from Wrestlecrap

Honestly, if all you did at Starrcast was see and here these fine people, you would be guaranteed to get your money’s worth.

Bill Apter was the undisputed rockstar of Starrcast in Chicago. He rocked every Q&A session he had, and when he settled in after one session to sell books, he was sold out in minutes. He’s funny, he’s friendly, and he loves wrestling passionately. You will come away wanting to read his book and listen to every interview he’s ever given.

And then, there’s Wrestlecrap.

I got to know these guys after they reached out to me to schedule Dr. D David Schultz in one of their talks at Starrcast Chicago, and I love them to death. Their podcast is always a must hear (when they get around to releasing them), and their booth was a must-see in Chicago. I mean, they had the Gooker. The actual Gobbledy Gooker! Fans could pay to pose with the Gooker or post in the Gooker costume themselves.

The Gooker wasn’t even the number one highlight of their booth. The highlight was the photo up with Katie Vick. KATIE VICK, ladies and gentlemen! This was the photo op the wrestlers wanted most. Not just the fans, but the men and women who make professional wrestling great.

I wish everyone safe travels to Vegas and hope you all get to meet our favorite stars. But trust me on this one. Go see Bill, and go see Wrestlecrap. They will make your weekend great.

You Can’t Call Have a Deathmatch Hall of Fame Without Pondo

Mad Man Pondo is one of the innovators of deathmatch wrestling in the United States. He’s a man who never took his career for granted and gave the business far more than he ever received. It’s always a thrill seeing people recognize him for his efforts, and on May 31, Game Changer Wrestling will give him an honor that truly fits him.

Pondo will be inducted into the GCW Deathmatch Hall of Fame at 9 pm Friday, May 31 at the Diamond Club at the Showboat in Atlantic City. This is the first ever induction ceremony for the Deathmatch Hall of Fame, and they could not pick a better man, in or out of the ring, for their first class than Pondo. Fans can buy tickets for this event by clicking here.

Excuse me while I head over to my publishing website to make sure the fans in New Jersey have plenty of books to purchase!

Fans who can’t get to Jersey can buy his book on Amazon or email me to get a signed copy!

CAC Is An Unforgettable Time for Wrestlers and Fans

I’ve attended some great events over the last few years. I’ve been to Wrestlemania, Axxess, Starrcast, and the Hall of Fame induction weekend in Waterloo, Iowa. Each event is unique in its own way, and if you’re a true fan, you should give every one of them a try at least once.

Cauliflower Alley Club has been on my “to do” list for a few years, and it definitely belongs in the category with the above events. Actually, it tops most of the above because not only is it an unforgettable experience, it’s for a good cause and, well, it’s in Vegas.

The 54th Annual Cauliflower Alley Club reunion took place at the Gold Coast Casino and Hotel, just a mile from the Strip. The Gold Coast is a wrestler’s hotel in the true sense of a word, a definite bargain price wise, and to be honest, the room was nice and clean if the view unspectacular. (My window opened up on a spotlight shining on a giant wall. Wow.)

But let’s face it – you’re not going to CAC to sleep. This is an event that allows you a 24/7 opportunity to rub shoulders with wrestlers, promoters, managers, valets, writers, photographers, and other fans. This is the place you come to sit down and have a drink with someone you’ve watched on television for decades. This is the place where you can meet an old timer who wrestled Lou Thesz. (Shout out to the great Reggie Parks!) This is where you get hugs from an original GLOW girl, a photo with Haku, and buy a stack of books from a host of great wrestling authors. This is where you can not only mark out over your favorite wrestlers, but see some of your favorite wrestlers mark out for their favorites, like Tyrus did when he saw Dr. D David Schultz.

Reunion week kicks off with the free independent wrestling show Sunday evening (a non-CAC event hosted by a local promotion, featuring wrestlers from around the globe). The same promotion hosts a second free show on Monday night as well. You’ll see big names like Sabu and future stars like Heather Reckless (whose name I’ve passed on to Girl Fight promoter Mad Man Pondo) and everyone in between. This year, Rock Riddle worked a match against Matt Striker, Joel Gertner read some dirty poetry, and La Rosa Negra dazzled fans with her high energy style. (I gave her info to Pondo as well.)

Monday through Wednesday, fans can mingle in the “Nostalgia Room,” where writers like me are set up with book tables alongside wrestlers like Sabu, Jerry Lawler, the GLOW girls, Haku, Barbarian, and even Dory Funk, Jr. You can shop, talk, or just sit and enjoy the atmosphere. Or if you prefer, you can hang out in the casino or the TGI Fridays bar, which was constantly full of attendees.

Tuesday evening is the Bockwinkel Blowout, a traditional “wrestler’s meal” highlighted by bologna sandwiches. No, I’m not kidding. You can have bologna on your choice of bread, or you can choose from a number of other cold cuts. The first half dozen or so awards are handed out after dinner, and then everyone moves back downstairs for drinks and stories well into the early morning hours.

The event concludes Wednesday night with the more formal banquet, where the bigger awards are handed out. It was on Wednesday that I presented Dr. D David Schultz with his Male Wrestler award. Nick Aldis presented Dory Funk, Jr., with his, and D-Lo Brown presented Mark Henry. Jim Ross played host for the evening in front a packed house, and he was delightful. Ross had no filter and no shame, repeatedly taking shots at a former employer for rewriting history in its own image while imploring attendees to spread the word about CAC and bring their friends next year.

This was my first time attending CAC, and while it was by no means a “perfect” event, it’s one I’ll never forget and one I hope to experience many more times. I met dozens of friends I had only known on Facebook prior to the event, including one of my long-time supporters and enablers, Tom Burke. I got a photo with Haku (one of my big regrets from Starrcast), and while I can’t disclose anything at the moment, I discussed two future book opportunities with wrestlers while there.

CAC was unforgettable, career-changing, and eye opening for me. I’m proud to be a member of the Club, and I look forward to working with them for many years to come. I’m also very grateful for all the friendships made and deepened last week. CAC is the most immersive experience you can have as a fan and an invaluable opportunity for anyone, regardless of age, who wants to advance in the business of professional wrestling. You can join the club now on their website to subscribe to their newsletter and become a part of the great work they are doing to help others. Once you become a member, you will certainly want to be in Vegas April of next year.

No Excuses

A note to all fans.

Yes, it’s staged.

Yes, it’s all an act.

Yes, we know that you know that the wrestlers are just “playing a part.”

Yes, we know when you boo and heckle the wrestlers, you are “playing a part” too.

But that does NOT justify using racial slurs on wrestlers or managers.

Ever.

There is simply no excuse and no place for that.

Boo them. Cuss them. Give them the finger. Whatever. Just have enough respect to know where the line is.

Chris Silvio’s “Must Book” List

After seeing him wrestle many times and hearing many people brag on him, I finally had the chance to meet Chris Silvio. He’s a great guy, as advertised, and I believe he’s one of the guys like Bob Evans who can really transform the world we know as independent wrestling.

Chris posted a list of “must book” talent on Facebook the other day. A number of these names are people I know and respect as well, so I decided to share it here.

This is what it takes, folks. Putting each other over, helping one another out. That spirit of camaraderie is one of the biggest reasons I love the indy scene.

From Chris Silvio:

Indiana’s Brayden Lee, a former college wrestler and 1 year pro, recently debuting in Chikara. This guy can do some amazing things in the ring and is dedicated to looking the part.

Colorado’s Alexander Corrente, a two year pro out of Rocky Mountain Pro in Denver. Corrente is a ring General in the making and a tremendous Heel.

Kentucky’s Corey Storm, At just 18 years of age Corey has all of the makings of a superstar. He possesses an incredible attitude, ability well beyond his years and the ability to connect genuinely with the audience.

Florida’s Kotto Brazil / Snoop Strikes, who has recently received national attention with MLW. In the next 5 years, Snoop is going to be a household name. Another former collegiate wrestler, with an incredible attitude and work ethic, trained by the insanely talented Jay Lethal. If you are not booking this man, log into your pay pal and send him a deposit while you can.

Omar Amir, out of Orlando Florida is money waiting to be made. Omar has size, an unteachable presence, and all the makings of a major star. Omar has been a staple of the SIW USA shows and currently is a top talent in FIP.

Jenna Lynn Van Bemmel (Jenna Van Muscles ) is hands down the hardest working women’s wrestler in Florida. Set to make her 3rd international tour this summer, Jenna is improving every week. She possess a superstar presence and a work ethic that cannot be touched.

Virginia’s Timmy Danger is hands down the most developed personality in the region. An OVW graduate, Timmy is a natural entertainer hungry to make a mark in the world of pro wrestling. If you are looking for a heel that gets real HEAT, Timmy is your man. Accompanied by my favorite manager on the indies Neil Sharkey, they form “The Sanctuary”, one of the most creative acts in the Mid Atlantic.

Rising Promotions:
On the top of the list is Denver Colorado’s Rocky Mountain Pro. These guys are making some huge moves and literally have changed the game in Colorado wrestling. With an incredible tv program they now run nearly 100 events annually and are pumping out some amazing talent. Fans, watch RMP every week worldwide on Twitch! Wrestlers, come and learn from their extremely knowledgeable coach staff with Mercury Pro Wrestling Academy.

Revolt Pro Wrestling has recently inked a south eastern TV deal and is coming out Guns Blazing. Using some incredible talent and doubling their event count, Revolt Pro is making a huge statement in Independent wrestling in the United States.

Ref to Watch:
Max Recon. This guy has been putting in the work and getting noticed throughout the Midwest. Max served our country proudly and is now dedicating himself to being one of the best refs in the nation. A referee is an extremely important and overlooked role on many shows. Give Max an opportunity. He deserves it.

There are so many more great talents out there but I wanted to shine some light on a few that have really impressed as of late. If you are looking for great additions to your show these guys have “it”!

Book them!
