Through the years I’ve had several opportunities to be a wrestling referee, manager, ring announcer and commentator. For the last couple of years the wrestling scene where I live (southern Illinois) has been on life support. But now a promotion is changing all that.
CMA Pro Wrestling made its debut Saturday, March 5. The show featured several talented wrestlers from this region and beyond. A packed house watched at the CMA Marital Arts Center in Marion, Illinois as the first champion was crowned.
Ax Allwardt beat three other men in a fatal four way contest. Fan favorite Heath Hatton nearly had the match won after spearing the near 400 pound Frank Wyatt. But the opportunistic Allwardt interrupted the pin and tossed Hatton to the floor, where the fourth man in the match Tony Flood was recovering after being dropped by Wyatt.
I managed to get a quick (and I mean quick) interview with the new champ. He talks about his past in the business and his future as the new CMA Pro Wrestling Champion.
Also on this week’s show the winners of our Road to WrestleMania contest. Thanks to all who participated and keep listening, Chad and I will have more contests in the future.
