Hello everyone and welcome to the Sunday Indy Wrestle Line Independent report, I am the weekend warrior Randy Klemme
First let’s heard to some news about local wrestlers working shows outside of the Midwest….NWA-Indiana’s Billy Roc had a good showing at the Jeff Peterson Cup in Port Richey, Florida Saturday night for Night #2 but lost his match against Gouge’s Krazy K. It was a good tournament though for Billy picking up a win Friday night in Orlando. Chris Hero defeated Matt Cross in the finals to win the 2007 Peterson Cup…

In Philadelphia, Drake Younger and Scotty Vorteks competed in the CZW Best of Best Seven tournament over the weekend. Younger lost his opening round match to Joker, who was the eventual winner of the tournament. Scotty Vorteks won his opening round match against Cloudy but lost in the sem finals in a four-way as Joker defeated Vorteks, the Human Tornado and Ricky Reyes.

From what I have learned, the first annual independent wrestling hall of fame induction ceremony and awards is taking place Sunday afternoon in New Albany, Indiana. The event is being co-ordinated by Bo Bo Brazil, Jr. There will be awards for Heavyweight, Cruiserweight, Tag Team, lady wrestler and manager of the year as well as the hall of fame induction. I was told from one scheduled to be inducted that he received a call that he was going to have to pay $15 to get into the hall for the ceremony and there was no dinner with the ticket it was extra. It’s kind of strange….you get honored to go into a hall of fame, BUT you have to pay for a ticket to get inducted……………hummm, sounds like a scam to me for someone to make money. While the Hall of Fame and awards is a good idea, it makes no sense to CHARGE an honoree to get into the building….

Well yesterday we told you about UCW’s home at Steve’s Gym being destroyed by fire Friday and CCW losing their lease in Louisville and has stopped running shows in Portland for the moment….NOW word comes that Heartland Wrestling Association has closed it’s doors in Cincinnati. It is sad to see one of the top indies in the US over the last 10 years cease operations. HWA at one time was a training area for WCW and the WWE. I have been told there is a problem with who actually owns the HWA name and a show is being scheduled for July 27th in Bellfounatine, Ohio according to the HWA website, HOWEVER it is not known what name will be used.

Let’s send a quick birthday shout out to AWA-Supreme’s Chris Blayze who celebrates a birthday on Tuesday of this week….

NOW let’s get to some weekend results….

Saturday night, EWF had their weekly show at the EWF Arena in Marion…

Wildman Rogers beat Willie Loseagain

Andrew Troyae beat EWF Ladies Champion Camron Star to win the title

EWF Midwestern Champion Nate Pheonix beat Cupid Valentino
