Hans Schmidt, who did wrestle at the Chase back in the 1970s, has passed away at age 87.
I'm told Independent Hardcore Wrestling has cancelled its 6/16 event in Dupo, IL. The website has yet to be changed to reflect that however.
Well the wrestler attacks fan incident is now online...after watching the video what do you think about this? Vote in the new poll on the left sidebar. It pretty much matches up from the descriptions we had gotten.
Blake Steel missed his bookings over the weekend due to serious legal trouble. MWR had posted a flyer suggesting a change in the main event at next weekend's Great American Wrestling benefit show on June 3rd was made but GAW administration is denying that's the case.
Sunday night training at Skywalkers in Decatur is no longer being offered at this time.
Haven't done a STLWC Showcase in a while, so here's six matches from recent shows in the area. Also included is one of Hans Schmidt's classic matches against Bob Orton Sr.
