I guess it might be dumb to ask since anyone could lie, but how many of you are or were in the business? Don't say names or detail any history, I think that would be too personal.

I guess I could say I'm in the business. I'm a referee for a local small fed.

Yea, I was involved with a small fed in Eastern Ohio for about a month. I wrote an article in the fed's program. It was all a voluntary, non-paying thing but I enjoyed it nonetheless. I got compliments from Greg Valentine about my article through the promoter, with whom I kept an e-mail correspondence. I would say I'm still involved, but I don't think having my feedback published on the Torch website counts.

Trained 6 months from October of 98 to April 99. Had one battle royal match. Reason for none compleation of training=MOTHER didn't see it as viable career and I need a job to pay my insurance at the time. I haven't returned as of yet but still miss hitting that mat as strange as it seems. I actually miss being sore in the morning. It's now been five years. I had fairly good trainer. He's still wrestling as far as I know. He goes by the name Frank "The Tank" Parker. He usally teams with Roger Anderson and are ranked by PWI yearly in the 500 usally ranking near the end of 250-350. They both appeared on WWF/E Shotgun Saturday Night twice. Once was against the very soon, at the time, up and coming Hardy Boyz. He was a student of the wrestling legend Boogie Woogie Man Jimmy Valiant who trains out of Viginia and plans to retire Christmas of 2004. I need to find that venue due to the fact I think I want to see that. Well, anyways, mainly since my training days I've done security and help break down rings. Most of the guys who trained with me have continued in the business. I do know current president of the NWA Richard Aprin due the fact he runs the NWA Tristate promotion in WV. The talent up there is pretty good. Check out there website at http://www.nwatristate.com and that's a cheap plug.

Well, that's basically where I am for now. Thinking about coming back and doing the Sign guy thing. No one currently has a market on it nationally or at least nobody I know of currently. Never know, if I get good enough with it I might make it big. Probably not but in my own mind. LATER.

PS: I mentioned the names because I figure other than Boogie you probably haven't heard of Frank or Roger besides Frank who I still occationally run into and is probably the NICEST guy to ever train with so I wanted to put his name out due to he never considered nor do I "personal". Also, Richard Arpin is only going to do the president thing for a year so I mention him because he's already said is the busiest thing he's ever been evolved with and will not do it more than one year.

Well you're in your little room
and you're working on something good
but if it's really good
you're gonna need a bigger room
and when you're in the bigger room
you might not know what to do
you might have to think of
how you got started in your little room

I was a production head for Ultimate Pro Wrestling (the promotion that begat John Cena and Victoria), and ring announced for Millenium Pro Wrestling, and the United Independent Wrestling Alliance. Plus, I worked a USO wrestling tour in January with Mike Jones (Virgil/Vincent) & Glenn Gilberti as a ring announcer and a sound technician.


So... yeah. I've been around.

I was never in the business, I just bitch about what I see. And if what I see is CRAP, it's not MY fault!

I trained for a little while with an indy fed around here, but had to stop due to lack of insurance and an unbridgeable conflict with my college schedule. Well that and the fact that I couldn't move any of my limbs 95% of the time after training. That's why when I complain I tend to try to complain about booking or interviews or things not related to the actual act of wrestling itself, because I know how much it hurts even just to suck in the ring :)



and maybe I should open up my sensitive side/but really, the sensitive side sucks./I've been there./You can only imagine the kinds of sweaters they make you wear.

I was about to get involved in a local small fed, but it shut down before Football season ended so I could never get there. Now there is a new one started and I'm involved not a lot just they have group meetings and I attend and give suggestions and hope soon they open a training facility, so I can train. My parents don't have a problem with me wrestling actually my father thinks it's great, but both said I by living on my own if school doesn't come first. So sorry Vince you'll just have to hold that contract until I graduate.

Sure it is. If you can figure out how to use the Internet, you can figure out how to use the remote!

Another bit of praise for the Cena/Rollins match as compared to other similar matches this year like Cena/Sandow. For all the offense that Rollins hit, he wasn't able to nail Cena with his finishing move.
