2018 TPI Preview

Written by “The King of Merch Style” Dave Pinnick

Welcome back to BWYS.  Here is a special edition based mainly on the merch from the entrants you will see in the 2018 Ted Petty Invitational at IWA Mid-South.  If you’re looking to support your favorite wrestlers at TPI by buying a shirt, you may not have to wait.  A lot of the talent in TPI have ways to buy their merch online.  Some of the guys don’t have anything online, but most will have shirts you can buy from them in person.  Let’s show these guys how much we support them and get a ton of merch this year.  Instead of hitting that fast food joint a couple times, eat at home and save yourself an extra $20 to grab a Michael Elgin or Mance Warner shirt.  I know that some people won’t be able to get anything from these guys, and that is okay.  Those of you who can though, please do.  These guys are out here putting their bodies on the line, and for $20 you get a nice looking T-shirt with your favorite wrestler’s name or Logo on it.   As for the show, the 2017 TPI had some unbelievable matches.  The boys & I look at this as our Wrestlemania.  We plan on enjoying every minute seeing our favorite wrestlers, and our superfan friends.  Alright, you’ve heard enough of my preaching.  Here are the entrants and links to their social media sites and merch(if applicable).

That is all of the entrants to this year’s Ted Petty Invitational.  We all know how great of a tournament this, so let’s show some support to IWA Mid-South.  You can buy DVD’s, Blu-Ray’s, & MP4’s at IWA Mid-South Smart Mark Video.  That does it for my TPI 18 Preview.  Go out there and buy some merch, you know I will.
