[Indy News] 3KWrestling Fighting Athletes and owner Steve Corino would like to publicly and personally apologize to Sunset Lanes, Ian Grossman, and the fans for not being able to put on the planned July 26 event in Kirkwood, NY.

[Misc News] The Sellersburg (IN) Police Department is investigating whether a match that took place in their town was a work or a shoot. Back on June 21, IWA Mid-South ran a show in the parking lot of a bowling alley, which featured a match between Mike Levy and Mickie Knuckles. Video of the match, which is highly graphic, has made the rounds on the Internet, and Chief Russ Whelan does not know what to think, but is clearly concerned. Levy, who was not only beaten by Knuckles but was also attacked by many other wrestlers, fans, etc., has not pressed charges. Promoter Ian Rotten spoke on camera, defending the match and the participants, saying the match was part of the show. He also believes people that brought it to the attention of the media and local authorities are competitors of his company. On Wednesday night’s episode of Peach State Pandemonium, we reported on two sources from inside the dressing room who confirmed that the match began as a work, but became a shoot when Knuckles’ head began swelling immediately following a headbutt from Levy. According to our sources, Knuckles became irate, and began shooting on him. The sources say the situation escalated when word got to the dressing room and guys were told to make him pay. (Rich Tate)
