    I'm sure that just like every other state, there are larger issues and older laws in place that need discussion. These laws are so irrelevant in the grand scheme of things. I can't see the law makers rushing to pass new laws on this topic. I'm guessing that the laws aren't strictly enforced either. That is unless some agency wants to go after somebody for something or other.

Quite a few of the rules are enforced, at least for the indy shows I've been involved with. There is someone from the Athletic Commission at every single show and they do require you to get permission before involving something as simple as a steel chair.

I do assume that a majority of the laws are quite old and have toyed with the idea of putting together a presentation showing how the state could benefit economically from getting rid of a majority of them, as I know there are several indy promoters who will do shows right across the border but not in Missouri. There's probably a realistic chance that a majority of the laws (outside of the licensing fees) could be rescinded if it was presented as making it more likely that shows would occur in MO, thus bringing in more promotional fees.

And yeah, St. Louis was a major center for wrestling in past decades. Harley Race still runs shows in and around the St. Louis area with World League Wrestling. (Just looked at the site and apparently Roddy Piper is making appearances at WLW this Friday & Saturday, I may need to try to put together a road trip.)

Perhaps it's suitable that they don't want to be called that...since lately, the shows are showing less and less of the "W" word than anything.

Ah, if only it was the late 80s/early 90s...Vince would have Brock wear a uniform similar to the Vikings, call him "Quarterbrock", and then job him out mercilessly.
