PWA Rankings End of October
This is getting to be a bit of a mess, Benz is injured at the worst possible time (well maybe he's better now since he won the rumble but it was a quick win getting the lucky last one in draw), SSP is inactive, so is Arson, and Blake Belakis is not doing PWA in the near future. Kinda worried about PWA's main event picture as I'm not seeing enough strong players to rotate through it. And the tag division still only has two teams in it right now. Only Derek Moss' Regional title run is truly competitive with drama. Dunno what will come out of the rumble, (Benz won so we have our main for November) but things appear to be in a valley.

Zahra in Dreamwave...
machine gun
Comment on the Uproxx writer who thinks Zahra should be blackballed from I guess anything out in public - Frankly I'm sick and tired of all the social media crusaders/lynch mobbers running around destroying anyone who won't bow down and worship the "Political Correctness Monster". While I don't approve of her childish behavior on Instagram, I wonder if all the folks who called for my head for expressing my conservative point of view against the radical left-wing are going to give this woman a pass for posting Nazi imagery or realize feeding & growing the "Political Correctness Monster" will eventually backfire on them in a big way. Donald Trump sure as heck thwarted the monster at every turn making its handlers extremely frustrated. By the way, I don't foresee anyone quitting Dreamwave or boycotting the promotion either.

Bye bye Boehner
I'm surprised he gave it up outta the blue when it looked like he was gonna stubbornly stay around to benefit the K-street wing of the GOP. The fact of the matter is John Boehner was the poster child of America's rage against the "surrender party". He didn't get his position simply because he was owed it, he was elected to be the opposition fighting against the most radical left-wing hack ever elected president. In response, all Boehner ever did was cave, capitulate, and cower out of every fight. He surrendered first, then put on an act to make people think he was fighting Obama's agenda. NO ONE was fooled by any of his defiant speeches, because they knew at the end he was going to rubber stamp it. The Republican party was not voted into the House & Senate to go along to get along, because the American people saw what this president was doing to this country and wanted him stopped. Boehner was not willing to do that. Anyone who took up the sword to fight was stabbed in the back by Boehner and the K-street wing of the party, at the same Boehner made excuse after excuse claiming we didn't have the votes. But even if they didn't have the votes, he was unwilling to use any tool available that would have been effective. The last straw was Boehner's surrender immediately after the 2014 elections where during the lame-duck session he FULLY FUNDED Obamacare and FULLY FUNDED illegal amnesty fearing a government shutdown would wipe them out in 2016 (total BS). Boehner and anyone else who ran on an anti-Obama platform showed they lied out their asses to get reelected. The American people went apes*** because they were betrayed, and the loss of the US Senate in 2016 and however many house seats will be for EXACTLY THIS REASON. You don't break every campaign promise you made the day after you get reelected and expect not to suffer any consequences for it. In the end, EVERYONE hated John Boehner's guts. He had no friends, other than RINOs, and liberal K-Street donors who want extremely cheap labor to save millions of dollars in labor costs (while Americans are on street corner begging for food homeless & with no jobs). NO ONE WILL MISS Boehner. The man is the little kid who gets beaten up daily for his lunch money by a bully who is almost as weak as he is but still refuses to fight.

Good riddance Boehner, you gutless backstabbing coward. Sit back, and watch how a real conservative fights a left-wing lunatic and how things could had gone much differently had you had a spine and a set of balls. It's no wonder Trump, Carson, Carly & Cruz are so popular as outsiders who speak out against you and your ilk.

Comments unsubjected
So I need to come up with a new name for the TV show and podcast I make - the NBS has been retired. It will be PWCI as the placeholder name for the TV show, the podcast may be a bit tricky to figure out as the obvious names have been taken and/or used in the area recently.

Missouri Professional Wrestling regulations are unconstitutional.
By Todd Humphrey
May 10, 2015 at 9:57am

I sit here today and wonder exactly how the state of Missouri has gotten to this point in state regulations. I'm sure in the beginning, the regulations set forth by the state which created the bureaucracy that is known as the "Missouri Office of Athletics" were brought about by mostly good intentions. However, the road to hell is paved with good intentions, and as everyone knows the only thing bureaucracies do is impose more and more unnecessary controls on honest, hard working law abiding citizens, such as myself.

The regulations for boxing, MMA, and professional wrestling in the state of Missouri are so strict, that it inhibits the prosper of anyone who strives to provide honest and clean entertainment to the residents and visitors of our state. Allow me to expand on them. In order to promote professional wrestling in the state of Missouri, you have to be a licensed professional wrestling promoter. The license fee on that is $400.00 for a two year license payable to the Missouri Office of Athletics. In order to qualify for a promoters license, you must first obtain a surety bond in the amount of $5000.00 which runs roughly about $100.00/year, already we're at a total expenditure of $600.00 to be permitted by the state of Missouri to promote our product. This is only the beginning, the next step is to obtain a "permit" for each event we promote. These permits were a mere $25.00 per event when I started in this business 16 years ago. Things always change, however, when bureaucracies feed their unending appetite for more control. The permit fees now for a professional wrestling show are $150.00/event. The fee remains $25.00 for boxing and MMA. The executive director of the Missouri Office of Athletics, Mr. Tim Lueckenhoff has gone on record in a response to my initial complaints to my legislators saying: "It should be noted that the permit fee for each wrestling event was increased in from $25 per show to $150 per show in 2004. This was necessary because the office prior to 2004 was regulating approximately 275 wresting shows a year.The majority of those show was taking in less than $20 in athletic taxes and the office was losing money on the regulation of almost every show." It's worth mention that the state has declared any advertisements of professional wrestling events illegal until there is a permit issued for the show in question. Mr. Lueckenhoff boasted in his response: "I found the advertisement on NWA’s website. I immediately called the person I believed to be promoting the show that being Charles Wilcox. Mr. Wilcox was advised to remove all advertisement until such time as a promoter license,bond and permit was issued for the event." Correct me if I'm wrong, but that is a blatant violation of the first amendment of the United States Constitution. Advertisement for our shows is done in several different ways, first is word of mouth. When you develop a core base of fans of your product, and they ask "when's the next show?" This is a common question heard often. We also mainly advertise by use of printed flyers which are placed on display at many private property businesses such as convenience stores, and other places. There are times when radio advertisements are bought, and of course internet advertising such as here on Facebook, our website, and Twitter. All of these forms of advertisement are forbidden by the Office of Athletics until we buy a permit for the event in question, thus denying us of our first amendment rights.

Next we have the issue of participant licensure. Each wrestler appearing in matches for the card must be licensed by the state. All licenses expire on June 30th of even years. The cost for the wrestlers to be licensed is $40.00. However, the requirements for wrestlers include a physical examination by a doctor, HIV, and hepatitis B&C blood tests. In response to this, Mr. Lueckenhoff states: "After the blood rule went into effect the office did make attempts to modify the rule for wrestling contestant to make them less stringent, however, the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules advised that all contestants must be treated the same." It should be noted that this response was given right before his statement on permit fees. So, in Mr. Lueckenhoff's office, all "contestants" must be treated the same, but in the same paragraph, promoters must be oppressed. His reasoning: "Regulation is necessary because on the independent level such as NWA, contestant are trying to make a name for themselves. We have seen contestants try hit each other with light bulbs, wrestle with thumbtacks in the ring and even in one instance a table was set on fire with lighter fluid and a wrestler was body slammed on to the table. The other problem is that state licensing holds promoters accountable to a higher authority, therefore, civic and charitable organizations as well as venues had a place to file a complaint in the event on an injustice by unscrupulous promoters. Other professional sports teams have entities that regulate them such as MLB, NHL, NFL etc,therefore another layer of regulation in unnecessary. Boxing and Mixed Martial Arts are regulated by the office because there are no other oversight bodies to ensure of proper regulation." I would like to make one thing crystal clear, what you're seeing is a prime example of a bureaucracy that has completely overstepped its mandate as most bureaucracies do. Mr. Lueckenhoff does not have the professional knowledge to instruct me or any other promoter on how to operate our business. His area of expertise is in criminal justice, of which he has a BS. This proves that the Office of Athletics is in no way qualified to tell me how to operate my business, that is also unconstitutional, it violates the first, ninth and thirteenth amendments. He says we promoters are held to a "higher authority" There is no higher authority to be held to than the honest, hard working citizens who buy tickets and come to our events, the state of Missouri is under their authority. As I have stated before, the free market dictates success in business. Government can't cause success, however, government can hinder success. In defense of the inspectors from the Missouri Office of Athletics, Mr. Lueckenhoff states: "The majority of inspectors who work wrestling events for the office have been involved in the sport of wrestling either as promoters, contestants or other interested parties." Basically saying that these inspectors have gone out of business for one reason or another, because of that, they're qualified to dictate to me how to operate my business.

It's a shame that this business is the way it is in that the promoters in the state won't band together and rid the state of this unconstitutional behavior. Instead, most promoters are only out for themselves and at times use this out of control bureaucracy as a tool to hurt the promotions they see as a threat. Myself, I'm happy to work with any promoter anywhere in order to promote Professional Wrestling in our state, and without state regulations, wrestling would prosper in that we would more easily be able to afford to bring in bigger names on our cards, we would be able to produce a much more fan-friendly product each time, without the fear of some state inspector looking over our shoulder, and telling us in an unconstitutional way what we can and can't do. We here at NWA Central-States Championship Wrestling take pride in the fact that we've never shown any disrespect to any other promotion in this region. However, there are those who do anything to try and make us a casualty of the unjust regulations in the state of Missouri.

My partners fear that the things I say publicly about these unconstitutional regulations will cause us trouble. I have no fear, however, as I will remind everyone who reads this note, including those of you at the Office of Athletics, no retaliation can be legally taken upon me for exposing this unjust regulation. I will not hesitate to take action against the Office of Athletics if I feel at anytime there is retaliation taken against my license. Mr Lueckenhoff also stated in the opening to his response of my initial complaint: "Mr. Humphrey has not been licensed in Missouri since 2006." I would like to respond directly to that. Mr. Lueckenhoff, I have the utmost respect for you, and personally I find you to be pleasant and friendly. I will kindly remind you though, Tim, I sir am a taxpaying resident of this state. I do not and will not bow in submission to any state agency or official. It doesn't work that way. I am making preparations to request seeing the entire budget, expenditures, and income of the Office of Athletics. Because of it being a public bureaucracy, the state is required to provide me with that information. Myself, I want to see exactly what's coming in, and going out.

The Central IL Promotion of the Year Presentation Speech
This was the speech given at Lanphier High School when Pinfall Wrestling Association was presented the central Illinois promotion of the year award.

Ladies and gentlemen, you’ve heard all the rumors, I’ve certainly gotten an earful from the few who figured it out or learned about it early, and now I stand here to present the promotion of the year award. Before I do, I know once the news fully gets out my phone and email will be burning up folks yelling, how can you claim PWA is a better promotion than the last promotion of the year winner? The truth of the matter is, I’m not going to say PWA is a superior promotion to everyone else. I’m also not going to claim that the PWA roster is superior to the last promotion of the year winner that is an argument that neither you nor I would have any chance of winning. And frankly, if you walked up to me a year ago and told me that PWA would be the promotion of the year over Dreamwave, I would had said no way. And moreover, I was asked where I saw PWA in five years, but my answer would had been would you have predicted that this is how central Illinois wrestling would be now versus five years ago? We still believe Dreamwave is the gold standard of pro wrestling in this state. So how is it that the NBS would award PWA the promotion of the year?

After last year’s NBS Awards I explained in an editorial comment that promotions would have to find a way to stand out from the competition. While roster is just one aspect of a great promotion, it’s not the lone factor. In 2013, a lot of you weren’t here to witness PWA. Average attendance was below 50 at a lot of those events. Toward the end of the year, things started to turn. Attendance was starting to grow and soon attendance was a healthy three digits in the little Jaycee’s Activity Center. Sponsorships came together. Then the event that made the statement that PWA was going to be a much bigger player on the local scene was held at Goals got nearly 200 people in the building, double what another promotion did a year ago with a higher caliber lineup.

Years ago the Nose Bleed Seats established the NBS Pro Wrestling Training center over in Decatur to fill a void in CI, a places for local talent to practice and create new talent. The NBS produced Derek Moss, Tony G, Perry Winkle, Nelson Sixx and Randy Ray that you see in the ring today. Guy Smith was the head trainer back then, now he is the head trainer with PWA’s training facility producing new wrestlers along with helping others who seek to a comeback. You’ve seen a few of those folks wrestle already, like Brent Dunn and Elijah Raheem, and one who made his comeback Brad Stephens. And the biggest surprise came at the end of the year when PWA announced they were bringing pro wrestling back to Lanphier High School.

PWA’s credo is that they make stars, not bring in stars, to grow itself. All the while PWA is providing a solid program in the ring, drawing really well with strictly homegrown talent. The bottom line, PWA earned the promotion of the year award by being the most improved promotion in central Illinois. The mission statement of the Nose Bleed Seats has been to advocate and encourage improving the local scene in every way possible. That expectation has been met and then some by PWA in 2014 as the most improved promotion in central Illinois and that should be rewarded.

The challenge for PWA for this coming year is to get their stars on the road, organize a caravan to other promotions around this state and neighboring ones to show they aren’t limiting themselves to just being players in good-ole Springpatch. Seek out more, demonstrate you should be recognized and move up the ladder in the independent scene so you may a big player in the Midwest or the nation! For those who believe PWA doesn’t meet your standards of a pro wrestling event, there are plenty of choices out there within reasonable driving distance, turn out, support them, build them up because if they get bigger, that will encourage others to step up their game to match it. For those of you who prefer PWA over every other promotion in the state of Illinois, keep turning out and filling up this gymnasium, and tell others why you like PWA and why they should too. But for now, it gives me great pleasure in one of the biggest upsets of the NBS Awards ever to present Pinfall Wrestling Association the 2015 Promotion of the Year Award.

Weak Brownout-hut Wrasslin'
Well...World Powerhouse Wrestling has demonstrated they have no ounce of professionalism in them, going so far as rehashing a former promoters' smear against me concocted when he was exercising his gay fetishes with people staring through bathroom stalls like former Senator Larry Craig to cover up for their own bad shows, bad matches and bad wrestling and the very embarrassing picture circulating of one of their guys throwing up in the ring last weekend (featured on WFFM). Therefore, the STLWC and the NBS for that matter will not be covering this promotion in the future. Certain people need to grow up and realize they aren't in grade school anymore, the wrestling scene has evolved far beyond what they were ever capable of doing, and there's a reason why most of their roster were rarely booked ever since FTW shut down. The STL Wrestling Scene ain't what it was in the mid-2000's, it's far stronger with five or six good promotions with top talent and not so tolerant of crap.

The Long Rap Sheet of Brian Neil Holland & the Farce that was CWU
A follow-up to a story more than a week ago that we hadn't been able to get to until now. We now have some details on the disaster that was Championship Wrestling United courtesy of Derek Martine, mixed in with info from multiple sources and what I've been able to dig up searching on Google --

The event was originally supposed to be held at Memorial Gymnasium in Eau Claire, WI on November 22nd. However, the original venue was never confirmed despite posting flyers all over the city. As a result the show was moved to The Black Horse Bar in Winona, MN. They advertised Booker T, Vader, Chris Masters, Rick Steiner & Ken Anderson. Masters despite communications between him and the promoter disavowed being booked. Booker T also denied being booked. Steiner & Vader never got transport arranged for them by the promoter thus did not attend either. Only Ken Anderson appeared for this event. Originally presale tickets were anywhere from $7.50 to $32.50, but changed to just $10 at the door of the bar. Attendance was counted between 70-80 according to one source, others claim 30-40. Anderson was paid half of what he was promised, four others received partial pay as well, the rest did not. A bar who sponsored the event and was booked for an after party in Eau Claire was left holding the bag after the show was moved. Both the FB & website for CWU has since been taken down.

Brian Neil HollandThe promoter, Brian Holland (pictured), who hails from Suffork, Virginia, tried to pay the gym with a check from a closed account a week before the show in Eau Claire. The venue checked to see if the check was valid the day after it was received, discovered it wasn't and called police. Holland was arrested for check fraud on Nov. 20th, but was able to make bail a short time later from funds sent via a third party. He is to go to court on December 3rd for that charge.

A bit of digging into Holland's background reveals he's accumulated quite a rap sheet. Holland also has been previously arrested in North Carolina for indecent liberties with a child and contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile from an incident that occurred in 2007. We don't know if he was convicted on that charge, as NC has its online court records behind a pay-wall but he is not registered as a sex offender in that state. Holland also has a pending assault charge in North Carolina set for court in February 2015. He's had prior arrests in Virginia for contempt of court and being a fugitive from justice. He was busted for driving with a suspended license in Tennessee. He was also accused of scamming a bunch of people and vendors in an event called "Spiritcon 2012" that was never held. And then there's this bizarre story where he claimed to be an FBI informant against a white supremacist group and scammed for donations in a phony run for president of the United States in 2008.

Information from his personal website on WIX.com claims his parents were wrestling promoters in the Carolinas back in the 1990s, and Holland got involved with it during his teenage years. He also supposedly hosted a weekly wrestling radio show on WLPM 1450AM. He ran for city council in Suffolk, VA at age 19 but lost. He became the news director of WLQM in Franklin, VA in 1995. He also was co-host of a national morning radio show with Ernie Davis on AM America syndicated on 92 stations. Later he became host of the Graveyard Shift which was syndicated to 104 stations before going to a noon-time interview program on WHKT.

Holland had attempted to run shows in Tennessee and Michigan under the CWU name, he has also tried to resurrect Pro Wrestling Unplugged seeking funding from investors from a site similar to Kickstarter. PWU originally was started in 2004 by Johnny Kashmere but closed down in 2010. So what about Holland's partner in this CWU Rich Richards? Well, it is suspected that Holland and Richards are one and the same person.

Bottom line, it appears that Holland was able to pull the wool over so many eyes with his previous positive credentials and experience while concealing his negative ones. It also begs the question if he had a successful radio career going, why he did he throw all that away charging down this path? Hopefully with all this information out in the open he'll have a much tougher time trying this again, that's if he avoids jail time to get the chance.

Sean Hubbard rants about the local state of the wrestling scene...
This is the beginning of what will become a weekly segment that may also be done a couple times a week. Ladies & Gentlemen Welcome to The Rampage Rant. Today's Edition We Talk Indy Wrestling.

When I first started in the wrestling business around 2002 the Wrestling Commission in Illinois had just been lifted about one year prior. For those that are NOT aware Illinois used to be a licensed state for Professional Wrestling events and you could not run a show without one of these licenses. It wasn't until the Commission was lifted in Illinois that we started to see an abundance of companies pop up all over the state. Wrestling around this time was really hot because you had all the guys that were making names for themselves like C.M. Punk, Matt Sydal, Claudio Castagnoli and several others that would go on to become BIG TIME stars and make it to the grand daddy of them all in Professional Wrestling. But let me stop there for a minute and emphasis this the guys listed above were Professional Wrestlers that were turned into Sports Entertainers. The big times have not focused on the basics of wrestling for a very long time its more about the drama and the bull**** then it is about the wrestling anymore.

Anyway back to the rant... In this time period you had wrestling companies that put emphasis on the wrestling and they were able to put butts in seats each and every month because they made the people on their rosters the stars and put the emphasis on them. They also didn't focus in bringing in the former television names each and every show they did it sparingly to make it mean something and never brought in the top name you could get in at that time right away because they had the philosophy that you had to be able to outdo yourself the next time you brought in a name You fast forward to today and you've got companies all over the state of Illinois and beyond that can not figure out to put asses in seats because they aren't doing everything they could be doing for their company. You've got companies in Illinois that have to bring in names each and every show just to survive because they themselves are the ones that started that trend over 5 years ago. Its not just one area of IL that there is a problem it is the whole damn state from north to south from east to west there are wrestling companies EVERYWHERE you turn all over the country. People in the business have NOT protected it enough to make it to where every tom dick and harry could NOT get in. Now if you've got money and can buy gear, a ring, sound equipment, & beyond you can run a show, even if you've never been trained to be a wrestler yourself ( I can name quite a few companies like this). Then you have companies that want to run but they are "Non for Profit"... HOW THE **** DOES THAT WORK???

You have companies all over Illinois that don't understand the concept and the power of TV Advertising... their excuse is it's costly... It ONLY is if you do NOT plan accordingly. Your main market is the people that watch RAW, TNA, & Smackdown each and every week and the ONLY way to reach them is to advertise during those shows. Everyone thinks that they can put up flyers and put their event information up on here and its going to put tons of butts in the seats. I speak from experience and say that NOTHING could be further then the truth. It is your job as a promoter to make sure you are getting the word out there in every single solitary way you possibly can. The more people that know about your show and more ways of getting the word out there the better your chances are of drawing a full house. But you also have companies out there that want to put a **** product out there and then wonder why the **** people do NOT come back the following show.

Ed Chuman once told me it takes a LIFETIME to gain a fan, but it takes a split second to lose them and a lifetime to gain them back if ever. Meaning if the product is consistently good the people will return each and every time but if the product hits a low point you may lose them and once you've lost them they are gone for good unless you are lucky enough to regain them by some miracle. This is NOT just a problem in Illinois its a problem in ALL unsanctioned states for professional wrestling. Wrestling is something that is one of my passions and something I find that is sacred to me. I'm not saying wrestling can be restored back to it's glory days from the 70's & 80's, but I am saying you can break yourself away from the trend that has been created and put the emphasis on the wrestling itself and the story telling that you would see asses return to seats month after month and you would see yourself turn a profit. People want WRESTLING! Not a comedy show, some soap opera drama, or a spotfest, or an absolute bloodbath massacre for that matter. You have to find a good balance and know that your job as a promoter is to dictate to the fans what they want, how they want it, and when they are going to see it... NOT the other way around and several promoters in Illinois & Across the country need to learn this.

People we can make Professional Wrestling come back it's not DEAD, it just needs a breath of fresh life breathed into it. You also have people that believe that Kayfabe is dead..Its ONLY as dead as YOU make it. It's your job as a promoter to make sure that the mystery factor and suspense factor is there at all times. You also have promotions all over the state of Illinois and the whole country that are running the same areas and over saturating the areas instead of working together with the same goal in mind. Pro Wrestling used to be a family, but now you have every tom dick and harry out for themselves.

You also have promoters that do NOT understand booking 101 that if your the promoter and your actively wrestling in your own company that you NEVER under ANY circumstances put the MAIN belt on yourself because that's what your paying the guys on the rest of your roster for and if you don't have a guy worthy enough of holding your main title to carry your company that you prolly have no business running shows in the first place. If ANY promoter is actively wrestling in their own company and puts their MAIN title on themselves it's done to inflate their already overly large EGO.

Joey Grunge calls out Axl Rotten for no showing IWA Midwest
On October 18th in Pekin, IL, a match was booked between Tracy Smothers versus Dan the Man, but DTM was to have a mystery corner man to counter Waylon Beck in Smothers corner. However, the person slated to appear was a no show, and after a week with no contact able to be made comes this statement -

I've waited long enough and believe I've been more than professional about this matter. As some saw on the Oct. 18th flyer there was a outline of a body on the flyer. I felt like since the show was called Extreme Measures that I would bring in an extreme surprise for the show. I contacted Axl Rotten, an agreement was made, a plane ticket was bought, the deal was sealed and done on my end. I kept my word on everything that was agreed on. On Oct. 18th myself and a few fellow staff members headed to the airport to pick up Axl for the evening's show. We arrived at the airport 15 minutes before the flight was supposed to land and waited. Flight landed and waited and waited and didn't see Axl anywhere. I went to the ticket counter and started asking questions, showed the attendant at the counter the confirmation number and was told that the ticket was cancelled by NO SHOW. I asked her to explain, she said that he didn't show up. I started to call and text and nothing. I got on Facebook and messaged him, had no response. So myself and staff members headed back to the venue. I kept trying to contact him however, nothing. About an hour later I kept checking my Facebook messages and still no response. However, he posted something by Twitter stating that he lost his phone. Now it's been over a week now and still nothing. I understand if he lost his phone however if you can get on Twitter and post that you lost your phone then why couldn't you take a few moments and message me on Facebook telling me what was going on? As people know when I started running shows I strived to honor my word and kept every agreement made with anyone that I brought in. Some people will get on here and talk trash but then again are you the one out the money for the ticket?

So for the ones that asked me at the show and have messaged me asking questions this is what exactly happened.

COMMENT: I have a theory on a motive for a no-show, but there isn't a good reason to skip out and just disappear. Axl Rotten could had called collect at a pay phone but chose not to do so. As it stands blowing off the booking and hoping no one would notice never works and it's yet another item on the list of dumb things done. More to come...

The Rap Sheet - Wrestling Invades America 9/14/14
The Rap Sheet – from the Mad Conservative
Wrestling Invades America
9/14/14 - Edwardsville, IL

They should really be calling it Wrestling INFURIATES America…

Ladies and gentleman what you’re reading is a throwback to when I had a lot more free time and energy to write up reviews of wrestling shows I attend. However, I no longer have such free time and energy, in fact, that free time and energy has shifted to producing episodes of the Nose Bleed Seats program and lending my services to various wrestling companies in the area my videography skills. And the release of this rap sheet comes one month after this ill-fated show to demonstrate how little time I have for this.

For the WIA guys who are reading this piece and are visiting the STLWC website for the very first time due to unawareness of its existence but someone pointed it out to them cause of this rap sheet, let me introduce myself. I am the Mad Conservative Crimefighter, I have been a wrestling fan for 30 years (30 years?!? Holy crap, does time fly!) Besides being a fan, when I got into the local independents I decided to review shows in the same guise as Scott Keith. At some point I wanted to contribute a bit more to the local scene, such as start up a wrestling news site to cover downstate Illinois & Missouri as there wasn’t such a page at the time. As time went along, I found other ways to provide a support role – play by play commentary, once in a blue moon ring announcing, ringside videography, video & DVD editing, production of a public access program where we featured interviews with local talent and a sampling of matches from local promotions, and a periodic podcast. In addition, I’ve compiled a directory of all the promotions in the state, and studied up on just about all the talent that’s active downstate. Last year I attended upwards of 50 events, I know that’s quite a lot and I felt the need to cut back but that seems out the window this year (I'm on pace to break my personal record of 57). The NBS crew shall be putting out a documentary film on the pro wrestling fan sometime next year. So my credentials to give opinions on wrestling shows is pretty rock solid.

I had several requests for me to do a rap sheet review of WIA at the SIUE Ballroom. I wasn’t real big on doing another one, but it seems these guys got themselves a podcast where they can spout their “knowledge” on wrestling and tell us all how we don’t know anything about the sport yet somehow are “total experts” on booking WWE. (Why do these guys have a podcast???) I think that may be enough motivation to write this up and really educate a few folks. Given the climate of no one wanting to listen to anyone and discover everything through major pain, suffering and disasters, this rap sheet may not get through. The bricks inside the heads of a few people may turn into solid steel. Like people who don’t listen to conservatives warning against voting for radical left-wing extremist Democrats until they’re backstabbed to death. So I’m not making any pretenses here, no matter what I say, I’m gonna be trashed on their next podcast for everything saying I’m a stupid smart mark who’s gained absolutely zero knowledge over a thirty year period about wrestling while THEY with very, very little training & experience know how to book Monday Night RAW far better than Vinnie Mac and HHH ever did.

Incredible stupidity....
I'll just let you read through this entirely FB thread.

Donovan Taylor

What makes wrestling companies look stupid, and hurts them in any town?
It is when some people play the, "lets work to get a promotion we hate thrown out of a venue or event they are booked at, so our favorite promotion will get the booking instead"
What happens Instead when that game is played is that no local wrestling promotion will be able to get booked anywhere, because of that kind of stunt
Building owners and event organizers dont care about the grade school level feuding drama between promotions, they have far too much on thier hands than to deal with that
I have seen wrestling dropped from the state fair , one of the reasons was because some blogger did not like the promotion they had booked each year, and hounded them each year to book the promotion he thought was better instead
The fair got tired off all the drama, and decided no more wrestling, even though it brought in good crowds
Try booking a wrestling show in the catholic school buildings in Springfield ilinois, wont ever happen, guess why?
Two promotions were enganged in a pissing contest with each other, found themselved booked next to each other same night In different building on the same church campus
One promotion and its fans, went to the head of that catholic church and hounded them to get the other promotions event cancelled
End result was that all wrestling promotions got banned by the area catholic church goverment from their buildings and schools all over town
Nice to know indy wrestling made a good impression on the local catholic bishop
Playing monday night wars with other promotions will only backfire and make everyone look petty and childish, especially when it is played in front of non wrestling people and entities.

Hillbillie Joe i beg to differ mr.taylor we had no problem with the other company they had the problem with us and started a bunch of garbage with us and with the help of a blogger took a fopw video and edited it to look like rwo and spread lies around no disrespect mr.taylor but if u dont know the whole story or truth shouldnt say anything you know us we have never lied to you but this stuff has to stop we dont bother anyone
7 hrs

Donavan Taylor I did not say that you went to the venuee admin, but some did over it, and all indy cards lost the Catholic church properties to hold shows at
How can you say I dont know what i am talking about when you just confirmed what I was talking about
Some promotions and a few bloggers had a problem with another , in this case, joes, and went and played monday night wars and put the venue admin in the middle of it and it backfired and everyone lost
The same situation has been played out with many different feds in many different towns, and the result is usually the same

Hillbillie Joe you said and i quote (Two promotions were enganged in a pissing contest with each other) and thats where your wrong at we had no problem with the other company they had the problem with us
6 hrs

Donavan Taylor The post was a general statement about incidents that should nevet happen.
It was not meant as an attack on any one promotion, I have seen several do the same thing.
6 hrs

Hillbillie Joe wasnt saying it was an attack on our side was just trying to explain that how it was worded being a pissing contest on both promotions people would assume and believe that was true so was just trying to clarify that that pissing contest was one sided because we never had a problem with any other promotion . Its other promotions , and wrestlers that have dislikes of certain other promotions decide they need to make things personal or start making attacks because they feel they should be the only ones running in a certain area , and to be honest no indy promotion is 100 percent perfect like they claim to be , all indy promotions have faults one way or the other . But I agree with you if people of other promotions would worry about themselves and how they run things and not worry about other peoples companies or other peoples personal lives things would be alot better .

Bizarre occurance at IWA Midwest
There was a dust-up during the IWAM event in Pekin Sunday afternoon following the triple threat legos match between Kidd Riot, Kidd Zombie and the person who calls himself the Beer F'n Drinker. While the match itself was no classic and may become fodder for Youtube shows that make fun of bad matches; Waylon Beck, Dixieland Destroyer and Moondog Bernard all ran out to rought up and get the three men out of the ring when Riot scored the pin. Waylon hollered to the crowd saying sorry you had to see that. Kidd Riot argued with Joey Grunge about it, where there was a little shoving. Riot went back to the ring and got the mike, called out Waylon & Dixie for doing something unplanned attacking them when they were injured from the match then got in the ring to confront Dixie. Dixie grabbed Riot and attempted a Phoenix clash but lost his grip, Waylon then proceeded to give him a blue ray driver into a chair. Jon Napier & Robbie McCann, maybe a couple others, ran out trying to cool the situation and get Riot outta there. The show continued from there, with Dixie's manager coming out to cut a promo and go into the match against Dan the Man. The work/shoot ratio on this incident was believed to be lopsided in favor of shoot.

TNA no longer allowing PPV recording
So TNA is having cable companies block customers from using DVRs to record the PPVs. I always had a major problem with paying a monthly fee to a cable company for the right to record a TV show that I was not able to view at the time of broadcast, which is why I have never invested in a DVR. Reason being, it didn't cost me money to record shows with a VCR beyond the device and the tape. I'm still able to use a VCR if I run the cable box cords through it, but video quality is noticeably lower and you can only record ONE channel. If the shows are on multiple channels, you're either screwed or you'll be searching for it on Youtube if it exists there. If TNA thinks this is the solution to their revenue problems, they are crazy. And this doesn't even factor in illegal video streams. So the real workaround is get a HD video TV card, the software to capture the video on your computer, and your cable box hooked up to your TV card but make sure the cable box auto-tunes to the channel you need to record. Though if it takes a lot of work just to record a TNA PPV, most people probably won't bother, as most people have completely written off the company in the United States.

And on a side note, if TNA is gonna survive much longer, they are gonna have to do ALL their TV tapings overseas where fans are far more likely to buy a ticket. I mean there's a few diehard TNA fans left that are so frustrated over the low draws in the United States they resorting to photoshopping crowds in place of empty seats and posting those on social media.

Jay Repsel speaks on the Jarretts...
Going to nip this in the bud real quick. I normally wouldn't publicly comment on things that happen in the locker room but there are false reports going around that something happened at DREAMWAVE between the Jarrett's and myself. That is not at all the case. Jeff was a super pro, there was a little incident where Karen's 8x10's not being put out at the merchandise table, it was a miscommunication. She did ask for her pay, which was given to them in full and then they left shortly thereafter. There was never any talk about money owed or anything silly like that. We shook hands and they left, and nothing was mentioned when we took them back to the airport on Sunday morning.

All monies that were promised were absolutely exchanged. In fact, this morning we sent clips of a few DREAMWAVE talents they were interested in from Saturday's show to Jeff and Karen. Jeff, Karen, and Jim Cornette sat in Gorilla position all night and watched each match. We look forward to working with Global Force Wrestling moving forward. Don't believe everything you read.

Sunday wasn't my show and I wasn't there so I can't comment on what happened. Everything was golden at DREAMWAVE though and any reports otherwise are just hearsay.

Superstar Steve Fender assesses The Great Malaki
Note: I would had posted this much earlier had I not had an internet outage the past couple days. So here is Steve Fender's view of the situation. Fender of course is a WLW veteran and trainer.

Okay, we have seen the kids side of the story and now we get the Great Malaki’s side. Now it’s time to give you the facts.

1) The kid is a dip**** that wasn’t properly trained, knows no wrestling etiquette, and thinks he is a hell of a lot better than ever will be.

2) The Great Malaki has been working for “14 years” and has been to many different countries,

3) Malaki constantly refers to the kid as a “green kid”

4) Malaki’s ankle was not 100% going into the match

5) Malaki felt disrespected going into the match

*As a side note I have been wrestling for 14 years myself. I’ve done more in my 14 years than most guys will do in their lives. I have somewhere between 400-500 matches in front of crowds ranging from 13-18000+ people. I’ve been to numerous WWE TV tapings and have been complimented by some of the best this business has ever seen. I have also been on the receiving end of an ass whoopin' in the ring. Bottom line, I think I am qualified to comment on the subject.

So, Malaki claims the kid fractured his ankle on purpose and that’s why he did what he did. Let’s start from the beginning. If you wasted 30 minutes of your life watching this video you will easily be able to tell that Malaki himself felt disrespected by the kid, and rightfully so. The kid is a dip**** of gargantuan proportions. He shows up at bell time, thinks his **** don’t stink, wants to get his **** in to make himself look good, and gets visibly upset when he can’t have his way. There are ways to deal with this. The way Malaki chose crossed over the line of professionalism. It appears to me that Malaki was going to teach the kid a lesson. I’m in total agreement with that, he needed it. It’s clear to me in the video that because he was going to teach him a lesson that that meant he was going to sell very little for the kid while at the same time smacking him around. Need proof? Look at the botched crossbody spot he pointed out to us. The spot was fine and if Malaki was the “vet” that he thinks he is he could have easily bumped and made the move passable. He didn’t and then proceeds to hit the kid twice for botching it when in fact it was Malaki that botched by not bumping.

Next we move to the chop spot. Malaki’s version: Malaki “ties” the kids arms up in the ropes. Malaki chops the kid three times but is upset that the kid “untied” himself from the ropes after two chops. The kid then takes a clothesline that looked more like a splash and powdered out of the ring. There are two ways to chop a guy, the right way and the wrong way. What Malaki is doing is the wrong way! A chop isn’t supposed to be a glorified hand slap to the chest to see how big of an imprint you can leave. There is actually an art to the chop, an art that few can actually do properly. What is actually happening during this cluster: Malaki is chopping the guy in a way to hurt him. That’s understandable considering he wanted to teach him a lesson. At the same time the kid is realizing that Malaki isn’t selling much for him and has taken several liberties. The gig is up and the kid bails. This is the reason the kid had a salty look on his face while sitting in the front row, not because he didn’t want to be chopped. In my opinion the breather in the front row was to try to calm the situation. In all reality it most likely just added fuel to Malaki’s fire. You never tied the kids arms up in the ropes, you simply draped them over the top rope. He had every right to move freely after the first chop in order to sell it. I actually would have encouraged this. If you think a guy should just stand there and let you smack the piss out of him then you don’t know what is going on in the ring! It’s called selling, maybe you should look up what it’s supposed to be and how it should be done. And no, I don’t think the kid was selling, you don’t have to sell something that actually hurts.

Malaki himself says his ankle wasn’t 100%. The first rule in the ring is to protect yourself. The second rule is to protect the guy you are working with. If you are a “vet” and you are not 100% you yourself should not put yourself in a position to be injured further, it’s up to you to take care of yourself, especially if you are working with a kid you know to be green!

As a side note I have never seen anyone believably escape the submission you applied to the kid prior to the sharpshooter without getting a rope break. Malaki freely let the green guy put him in a hold that could have, and in this case did, injure him. The kid is green, took a beating in the match, was most likely blown up, and was probably lost at this point or wondering what in the hell was going on. As a result the execution of the hold was beyond terrible and it injured YOU. It’s no one fault but your own! Spin it how you want, but you can’t deny the facts!

Final verdict: the Great Malaki isn’t so great. There were four green workers in that ring and only one of them has a hint of clue what he was doing and that was Malaki. Having said that, it would benefit Malaki to better himself before freely blaming others for his shortcomings.
