Use this thread to talk about your local wrestling feds and shows.

I'm in Minneapolis, so I've got a few places here but I've never been to a single local show. That is all changing on the tenth of next month though, when I'll be attending a F1rst Wrestling show. Sonny Kiss and Warhorse are both gonna be there, so I'm pretty hype.

What are your local promotions? Are you vaxxed and going to live shows soon?

This could be the most one-sided fight since 1973 when Ali faced an eighty-foot tall mechanical Joe Frazier. My memory isn't what it used to be, but I think the entire Earth was destroyed.



I went to precisely one local show, a Northeast Wrestling card that had ricochet vs Cody for the brief time they were both on the indies. The match was pretty good but not fantastic.

It also had Dijak vs Hager, who was still doing his We the People schtick. It was honestly kind of sad to see a mid level WWE guy still doing his catch phrase on the indies.

The thing I remember most is when the guy I presume was the long time face of the promotion whose name I donít remember made his dramatic return from injury by very slowly driving a jeep decked out in his colors through a loading bay door. Problem was the door got stuck and it was the middle of winter, so we just kind of had to watch them fiddle with the door for 5 minutes while the freezing air filled the arena. Then the big payoff was him driving in at 2 miles an hour.

Our love is pure



There was a street fight on the last show I went to, and as soon as they pulled a table out I told my friend there was no way those things were breaking since they were thick as gently caress. And I was right. Three tables used, three gnarly bumps, zero broken tables. It was wild.

Also I had no idea how fuckin loud a chairshot across the back could be until one got completely broken over a ladies back maybe two metres away from me

I went to an outdoor show put on by a local indie in the afternoon, before an AEW Dynamite, and there was a light rain the whole time. By the last match the ring was just too slick to really be safe so they just brawled all over instead, and caused a minor car accident from people rubbernecking.

hi c:



I wish there was wrestling anywhere near where I lived. But all we got seems to be WXW and that's too far away, and if there's anything closer to me it must be some real underground poo poo where people die and the mob covers it up.

I don't know where exactly you are, but it looks like wXw are back to touring across the country, so you could get lucky and see them live somewhere closer to you than Oberhausen.

I went to these shows back in 05/06 at the Manasquan Elks Lodge. They had a guy who would come down to the ring in a straight jacket, trying to bite everyone in the front row. Before the match he would eat dog treats. I think he wrestled Simon Diamond on the last show I went to.

Depending on how far I want to drive, thereís currently three local promotions: F1ght Pro, MCW, and CRAB Wrestling. Iíve only been to MCW shows of those, but definitely want to check out F1ght Pro. Trish Adora is their champ and sheís awesome. Thereís also Flying V (a theater company that also ran wrestling shows amongst other things), but they had a big sexual harassment blowup at the start of the pandemic, and completely overhauled their executive board, so Iím not sure if theyíre still planning on doing wrestling. I hope so, since they had shockingly good presentation for an indie, which isnít too surprising given theyíre a theater company first. We also had PrimeTime Pro, but they blew up at the start of the pandemic when it turned out the money guy had been spending the promotionís money on findoms and was deeply in debt, and the other supposed lead moved away (after making it clear they had something of a falling out with money guy since they didnít have any financial stake in the company and it was used against them). Incidentally, that promotion rose out of Nova Pro Wrestling which also blew up because of the money guy (different one) not paying people and/or being a sex pest, I forget the details.

Anyway, Iím looking forward to live wrestling and may make a trip to see MCW, even though itís a good 1.5 hour drive.

My uncle was an indy wrestler for a local fed. He always had to wrestle with a mask because he was getting disability checks and didnít want to get caught. He took me backstage one time and I got to meet Bill Dundee.

Pretty much. They converted the snack bar to a regular bar and it's Seattle so commercial pot sales are no big deal.

I miss that promotion.
