Hello Wrestling Fans

Curious of the other products out there besides what
the WWE has to offer? Ever wonder where the
superstars of the WWE start their careers before
entering the WWE? As hard as it may be for some
to believe, there are over 400 wrestling promotions in
the U.S. alone, and over 2,000+ workers.
Chances are somewhere in the U.S. a handful of shows
featuring young, athletic hungry stars of
the future are taking place. I'm talking about the
Independents. The Indies provide those
hardcore fans the oppurtunity to see wrestlers of WWE,
WCW & ECW fame, and stars that have been
making names for themselves on the indies for years,
and those waiting to make a name for themselves.
The Indies are always showcased in bad light. WWE and
Pro Wrestling Magazines so often refer to
the indies as the Minor leagues of Professional
Wrestling. But wrestling is like no other sport.
Politics and an overly crowded roster of talent has
meant many stars much deserving to reach the
bigtime will have to wait until the WWE opens up their
eyes. Or until another promotion with an
investor worth a few million decide to take a chance.
But that is all going to change now. I want to provide
you, the fans, with alternatives to the WWE.
The amount of talent that the Indies provide is
uncanny, and many promotions put on very good shows,
but don't have the financial backing of Andrew
McManus, Vince McMahon or Ted Turner. The indies
provide everything you could want, and they always
bust their ass, which is a lot more than
can be said about the WWE superstars. In all honesty,
with the exception of a few instances,
the only true showcasing of talent is during WWE's
PPV's. The independents provide no-nonsense
wrestling, with a mixture of simple storylines &
My website, USA! Indy Wrestling, is the pinnacle site
for Independent Wrestling. Here you will find
results from shows across the country; listings for
upcoming shows; links to wrestlers,federations,
indy news sites & tape vendors; news on the indies;
columns from wrestling insiders, wrestlers
themselves & respected reporters giving weekly columns
on the happening of all the indies in
their region of the U.S. I have even thrown in
columnists covering the U.K., Australian, Canadian,
African, Japanese, Mexican & Puerto Rican scene's to
name a few; hundreds of biographies of
workers across the country; federation & school
spotlight showcasing the different federations &
schools in depth; Interviews with top stars & former
stars on the independents; live/tv reports;
appearance & autograph schedules; media reports
(newspaper, magazine, radio, tv) of the stars;
merchandise listing for different federations,
wrestlesr & indy tape vendors that you can view &
possibly purchase; listings for TV & Radio Indy shows,
and what I believe are the 2 prizes of USA! Indy-
Live! Wrestling & The Feature!.
Live! Wrestling provides Live PBP action of different
federations. If a show is happening somewhere
in the country, chances are you can catch the blow by
blow on Live! Wrestling.
The other section, The Feature! searches in depth at
the Indies. Here you can take in depth looks
at indy supercards; memorial events for stars that
passed away; title histories of varios federations;
mailing list reports of various promotions & workers;
WWE Training camp which focuses on the workers
who are invited each year to the WWE's training camp,
which 1 or 2 stars is usually given a contract
and assigned to one of the WWE's farm leagues, Ohio
Valley Wrestling or Heartland Wrestling Association.
WWE Future Spotlight, which focuses on those stars in
OVW or HWA who are going to be brought up
to the spotlight very soon; WWE eyes wide shut which
focuses on talent the WWE seemed to have
let slipped their eye; polls, USA! Indy Elite which
comprises some of the best minds in the business
ranking who they believe are the top tier for that
month on the indies.
Indy supercards will feature biographies on the
competitors, results & pictures from previous events,
and thoughts on the event from the workers & promoter
themselves, including official quotes from
those in the WWE. Memorial shows will also feature
this information, but will also include fans
thoughts on the worker, and a complete biography on
those being remembered.
If you follow the indies, than this is the site to
watch. Updates are made everyday, at
My hopes is that the Independents be given the proper
spotlight they deserve. Too many times
workers & promoters go unnoticed by the public, and
when they are put into notice, are not given
nearly as much coverage as the WWE and its superstars.
If you are unfamiliar with the intense
amount of action that goes on the independents, check
out the site. With sinking ratings as of late,
and obvious fan interest at an all time low, its about
time the indies be brought into the limelight.
I hope you enjoy the site, and hopefully the
Independents can come together on a much larger scale.
