Thank you for those who took the time to read this, and I wanna give a big shout out to Chad French who hooked me up with Midwest Territory, and Let me become an admin to the page and to the deathmatch cult page on fb as well. For me Iwa Midsouth was truly the BEST promotion of the year. Czw had a few zingers here and there, and wwe had a couple as well, but iwa ms took the win for me. But i gotta give huge props and credit to game changer wrestling, who put on some of the years bests shows as well. Including many shocking debuts like Masato Tanaka, Pco, and even David Arquette! Haha.

Thank you to all competitors who are listed, and those not listed for what you’ve done for the business, and us fans. Thank you for a kick ass 2018. Im so excited to see what’s in store for the new year. Here’s to a great 2019! 🤘 Support your favorite indy wrestler, and check out for the best selection of indy wrestling shows. Thank you, god bless.
