With the WWF changing its name to WWE (something I don't think I'll ever get used to), and their brand of wrestling wearing thin on a good many people, now is a more important time than ever before to support your local indy fed. I went to a WCWO show here in Indianapolis last night, and I daresay it was more fun than I've ever had before at a wrestling show (and I've been to both RAW and Nitro). You can read all about my experience at ekedolphin.blogspot.com.

Overall, the wrestling was some of the best I've seen in a long time, the promos were short, sweet and to the point, and I actually got to talk to several of the guys during intermission and after the show. I felt like one of the boys, even though I'm not one of the boys-- yet.

Support your local indy fed. Mine is WCWO.

I'll drink to that...being part of indy wrestling is one of the greatest things you can do in "our great sport," seeing as how few of us will ever work for the WW-f'n-E. (Ugh.)

In a related indy note...Minnesota's MPW (Midwest Pro Wrestling) is merging with/taking over Wisconsin's ACW (All-Star Championship Wrestling.) The intent of the newer, bigger organization, is to become a feeder league for WWE.

Now being part of ACW's TV crew, I'm somewhat "inside," but even I don't know exactly what's going on. But apparently:


* MPW's Minnesota TV show will soon air on Green Bay television...where, I have no idea. (And where that leaves my crew, the infamous A2NWO...unknown.)

* The new fed, under the MPW banner, will still run shows in the Green Bay area.

* Many familiar names, who already work for both feds, will still be around. Exactly who is still up in the air.


More details to be announced...check ACW's website for more.

But I'll say this...doing ACW-TV and ACW Home Video remains the coolest stuff I've ever done in broadcasting. The boys in the back work damn hard to entertain you, cheaply. They deserve your support...and as wrestling fans, we all deserve alternatives to WWE. So when your local indy fed runs a show...blast it, GO!!!



Star wipe, and...we're out.
Thrillin' ain't easy.

Note to self: anytime I'm thinking "TNA isn't stupid enough to do THAT", I'm wrong. If Kaz was available to do an X division title match, why wasn't there one scheduled?
