[News] The House of Representative voted down SB 413, the bill designed to revamp regulation of pro wrestling in Georgia and remove World Wrestling Entertainment’s exemption from regulation, by a vote of 105-57 during the final session of this year’s General Assembly. The defeat places regulation of Georgia pro wrestling back in the hands of the Georgia Athletic and Entertainment Commission. In November 2007, the GAEC attempted to implement strict new rules and encountered stiff opposition from independent promoters and wrestlers across the state. In February, the Commission announced a hold on further action pending the outcome of SB 413. (Larry Goodman)

[A Message from Scott D’Amore] Just wanted to let everybody know we’ll be doing a seminar with Al Snow on Sunday, May 4th at 9 a.m. at the Can-Am Wrestling School [in Windsor, Ontario]. Cost will be $50 per wrestler. Al will cover a lot of different topics focusing on what’s needed to make the next step from the indies to the bigger leagues. Please pass the word around and let people know they can contact me at this email address ([email protected]) to get their spot. I recommend this seminar for anybody who wants to try to get their break in wrestling or even if they just want to make themselves a better worker. Novice and experienced workers alike will get their money’s worth from this seminar.
[From the Gabe Sapolsky on the ROH Message Board] Sorry about lack of newswires and articles for the main page. We’ll have some up by morning. I just spoke to Austin Aries. He has suffered a head injury and needs to take this weekend off. We are hopeful that he will be back in action by Detroit and Chicago, but he is being cautious and won’t return until he is ready. Obviously, he was in major matches in both Boston and Edison so the cards have to be somewhat re-booked. This process is what has slowed down the newswires and articles. We’ll have a newswire by morning with new matches for both Boston and Edison. Thank you for your patience and for understanding.
