Saturday night a bunch of good people got together to help us raise money for both the Animal Shelter of Salem, Indiana and the Washington County Humane Society.
To be honest we exceeded our expectations on what we were able to donate and the amount of people that attended the event.
I want to publicly thank every single person that gave of their time and bodies to make this show a success.
This wasn’t meant to be a crazy work rate show or anything but everyone worked very hard and the stuff that was meant to be good was and the stuff that was meant to be fun was as well. I’m very proud of everything involved.
Could this show have been better? Yeah but every single thing on this show that didn’t come out the way I wanted was on me. Especially that weak ass chair shot on Ben and how lousy I did on commentary after not being live in forever and half buzzed/ all the way nervous.
I’m hoping everyone will get a chance to see this show soon. It’s not perfect but I’m proud of it. It was a labor of love and we did a little bit of good while still trying to keep both the wrestlers/show participants as safe as possible.
I keep getting questions about whether or not we will do another show. To be honest… I worked my butt off on this thing and so did my wife. I was exhausted, stressed and felt at times I wasn’t the happy guy I usually am. I got to the building at 9:30 am and didn’t leave until after 1 the next morning. So will I ever do this again? Are you kidding me?
Thank all of you from the bottom of my heart. Seriously. Love you folks.
