Indy Wrestle Line–7/14 Report
317-592-9401 option 2
Hello everyone and welcome to the Saturday Indy Wrestle Line Independent report, I am the weekend warrior Randy Klemme
We lead off today with great news from Night #1 of the Jeff Peterson Cup in Orlando, Florida as Indiana’s â€œPure Dynamiteâ€ Billy Roc defeated Seth Delay in the first round of the â€œReckless Youthâ€ bracket to advance in the tourney. Billy defeated Delay in 6:53. Now Bill will face Goungeâ€™s Krazy K Kirby Mack in the finals of the bracket in Port Richey, Floriday tonight. Other bracket final matches tonight include, Chris Hero taking on Erick Stevensâ€¦â€¦Chasyn Rance against Adam Flash and Matt Cross vs. â€œthe Marqueeâ€ Bruce Santee. Hopefully we can be talking good news tomorrow from Floridaâ€¦
Well we received word that Steveâ€™s Gym in Elkhart was destroyed by fire Friday morning. Steveâ€™s housed Friday night shows for Underground Championship Wrestling for the last few months. Steve Travis, the owner of the gym said in a newspaper article the fire may have started in the office area. The building also contained five other businesses. No word yet on future UCW shows.
Word from Louisville is that Classic Championship Wrestling has stopped running shows and are now looking for a new building. Apparently they lost the lease at the arena in Portland.
Another shout out goes out to Tim in Niles, OHIO, sorry that I said Michigan the Other day. Chris Clayze is a friend of mine and he has worked for me on a couple of the shows that I promoted here in Indiana, so I know his work ethic and style. The MySpace thing Tim was a friend helping a friend. I donâ€™t do it for everyone. I also do it for a lot of promotions working on promoting their shows and things like thatâ€¦SO if you are on my MySpace friends list—–you will probably be hearing from me again!
Thanks to all of the people that called and left comments on the number of wrestling promotions in the state of Indiana. It was pretty much agreed that there are too many but nothing stops people from running their own shows and using much of the same talent around the state. Promotions SHOULD have respect for one another though when trying to run in the same buildings or areas. There are no so-called territories for promotions, however everyone knows or should know where each other runs. One caller did bring up the fact, that it would be nice if a wrestler is working as a heel in one organization, they should be working as a heel in other organizations, but there is no way of getting everyone to work together. One caller even went as far as to say it would be great to have an organization that has a schedule like WCWO and the talent pool of IPW. The only way you could control the number of organizations in the state would be to have a wrestling commission like in Kentucky to monitor the groups, HOWEVER we donâ€™t want that in Indianaâ€¦.
