    Default Indie Wrestling

    This is where you can chat about various indie promotions such as ROH, Dragon Gate USA, CZW, CHIKARA, etc.

    As some of you probably know by now, Billy Corgan of The Smashing Pumpkins is starting a wrestling company. I did an interview with one of his co-owners and wrote an article that I think pretty much explains everything that we could possibly know about the company.

    You can check it here: http://jaedmc.blogspot.com/2011/08/u...esistance.html

    Their current roster as of right now is:
    Harry (D.H.) Smith
    Teddy Hart
    Jay Bradley(he's been wrestling for AAW up here in Chicago and was once Ryan Braddock for the WWE a while back)
    Simply Lucious(the only female to graduate from HBK's Wrestling Academy)
    Kevin Steen

    What I do know is that as of my interview they had 80% of the first card hammered down, so they have other folks on the roster they're just teasing them out.

    I'll be attending the first show of a new local wrestling federation on Saturday evening, the Australian Wrestling Alliance.
    http://www.auswrestlingalliance.com/
    Unfortunately, the local fed I was following (PWAQ) kind of imploded, which is a damn shame, but it looks like most of the talent is headed to the new guys.
    Some really, really strong talent here... I just hope they can get the crowds.
    The last PWAQ show I attended had a pretty damn small crowd, which is a drag, because most of the in-ring talent was still top-notch.
    Still, AWA has some great trainers in Esteban Molina and AJ Istria, and both guys have a really strong work ethic, which I'm certain will carry across to the rest of the roster.

    But, there already was an AWA!

    Yeah, I know, but pretty much all the three-letter acronyms are taken. Seriously.
    Besides, we had a WCW before you guys but you don't see us complaining.

    was wondering about something like this, does it go with indie or international??

    anyways i forgot BOLA was last weekend, glad to hear generico won(i root for him every year).

    next show looks pretty good too.

    Here's a pretty good interview with TJ Perkins (aka Puma, Sydistiko, etc):

    Interview with TJP

    Wrestling Revolution Project is announcing a new wrestler for their new promotion each day - so far it involves Colt Cabana, Ken Doane (Kenny Dykstra), and Dr. Luther.

    I'm curious about this one - Dr. Luther was a regular top guy in Portland Wrestling a handful of years ago, and I always enjoyed his work.

    I cannot wait for this PPV.



    Also, it's been said that the new promotion Corgan's creating is gonna be booked by Raven.


    I've heard a lot of great things about Raven's intellect and booking skills. I hope the hype is true.

    I've heard he's pretty clean now, but I can't speak for that.

    Still to used to posting in the main thread but I should have mentioned this here.

    The young bucks are returning to ROH.

    I guess Booker T and Goldust's comments soured the WWE on them.

    It is not booked by Raven. He's more like an agent. They're using Raven to help work with guys on characters. Billy Corgan and The Barons are booking it.

    Even more interesting.

    I really want to see what they've got in store. There have been a strange mix of different Indy promotions rising up as of late, hopefully this new one adds it's own unique flavor.
