local wrestling
« on: March 15, 2016, 10:15:33 pm »

I attended a wrestling card in Harrison on Saturday   Maybe 120 people there   they had 7 matches including a 10 man battle royal   This was called Mid States wrestling     Do you guys know of other independent groups around the area or in your state??    We had a good time and would go again   How about some of your experiences at these local matches??

PM me the next time the promotion comes to town.  If I can make it, I will do so.

Man oh man, the memories of Mid South in Barton Coliseum.

Seems like by the time I find out about an indie promotion in my area it's already gone out of business.

well these sure not stars like those    as I was saying mostly local guys  I think tickets are $10 or $15   but if you are starved for live wrestling it is ok

FWIW, all the stars you just named were from the Memphis promotion.  I was speaking of the Leroy McGuirk and Bill Watts promotion.  Still great entertainment either way, though.

Tonya Harding was a no show.  My gosh Bob Orton came out and actually wrestled and was counted out for the lose.  He actually moved around a couple of times pretty well.  For 66 years old he looked better than I thought.  Bobby Eaton looked and moved like he was 20 years older than Orton.  Eaton did not wrestled but was the ref in a arm wrestling contest.  He could hardly get through the ropes.  Putting your body out there for 350 days a year for several years and travel cannot be good for anybody.  Decent crowd with tickets at 15/20/25.  Next matches in August.
