Mandatory.com’s “greatest wrestler from each state” map!
When putting together a map of the greatest wrestlers from each state, some of them are easy choices. Hulk Hogan easily wins Georgia and Macho Man Randy Savage is the obvious choice for Ohio, but some states haven’t produced that many big names at all. If you’re wondering how on earth Eric Bischoff could be the greatest wrestler from Wyoming, it’s because he’s the ONLY professional wrestler from Wyoming. He was actually born in Michigan, but was the only one to even reside in the state. If this teaches us anything, it’s that Wyoming needs to up its game when it comes to producing wrestlers.
The three toughest states to choose had to be Minnesota, Indiana and Texas. Indiana was home to Mick Foley and the late, great Ultimate Warrior, which was a really tough call, but Foley edged the UDub out. Minnesota is home to both Mr. Perfect and Rick Rude, which could go either way. Texas is the birthplace of both The Undertaker and Stone Cold Steve Austin, so there’s definitely room for argument that The Undertaker deserves the spot over Austin.

Tencozy takes the NWA tag team titles from Irongodz in Japan on Sunday, April 6, 2014!
One year after the NWA landed in Japan at New Japan Pro Wrestling’s “Invasion Attack 2013,” at which then-NWA World Heavyweight Champion “Ironman” Rob Conway successfully defended the title against Satoshi Kojima, and thus began a battle for dominance between the two storied promotions, New Japan seems to have the upper hand.
The National Wrestling Alliance has announced the addition of Bayou Independent Wrestling and its promoter Josh Newell.
“We are pleased to add a quality promoter like Josh Newell to the National Wrestling Alliance,” said NWA CEO Chris Ronquillo. “NWA-BIW is a quality promotion and a great fit that rounds out our Louisiana coverage.”
Bayou Independent Wrestling, established in 2007, will hold its first event as a licensed NWA promotion on May 24 at the West Monroe Convention Center. NWA-BIW Southern Champion Steve Anthony will defend his title against former NWA National Heavyweight Champion Vordell Walker in an “I Quit” match.

ECWA and Extreme Rising team up again!
A few months ago, Extreme Rising had a scheduled show for Saturday March 8, 2014. It was the very same day that ECWA was presenting ‘Spring Battle III’ live in Newark, Delaware. However, due to unforeseen circumstances the Asylum Arena aka the former ECW arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania had to cancel Extreme Rising’s show forcing Extreme Rising management into crisis mode hoping to somehow appease the fans and the men they had contracted to be on their show.
That’s where a brilliant partnership with the ECWA came into focus!
Word seems to be spreading that Jersey Championship Wrestling (JCW) is the place to be for professional wrestling legends to showcase their talents and meet their fans! Coming off of a month that saw both Jake “The Snake” Roberts and Jerry “The King” Lawler in the JCW ring, we move forward to April with no fewer than seven legends and stars who are ready to thrill the New Jersey crowds!
The first event will take place in Brick, NJ on April 19th. Hardcore wrestling icons Terry Funk and Tommy Dreamer will be in the house that night, so be prepared for a truly Extreme show! In the main event of the evening, Funk will be in Dreamer’s corner for a rematch of a match that took place in June of last year in Oakland. Dreamer will once again be facing “The Cold-Hearted Playa” Danny DeManto! Their last meeting put JCW down one door and a ring bell, and it took guest commissioner and former New York Giants Super Bowl Champion Jay Alford to put an end to the match!
