Ron Powers says… Broadway had great potential at one time. However, the loony’s took over the asylum. It’s an abyss of self-absorbed egos. If anyone has an issue with this, come see me at a real show this Sat. night at East Carondelet…
You know what, Ron Powers? I do take issue with all of this! I TAKE YOUR REMARKS VERY PERSONAL. Sounds to me like you have a problem with the powers-that-be at MMWA for whatever reason(s) and if that is the case, then you have a problem with me. I’m no jabroni, idiot, loony or whatever putrid poison you wish to spew and the “asylum of egos” you wish to insult happens to be one of the most important parts of my life and means the world to me… You can bully Keith Smith, Larry Matysik, Herb Simmons and SICW all you want, however, you will NEVER – I will repeat, NEVER – pull any of this at South Broadway so long as I have anything to say about it! I will NOT be intimidated, insulted or fearful of you or anyone else for that matter – PERIOD. Keep running your mouth, Ron Powers, it’s what you do best.
This whole situation has been on my mind for a time now… I applaud Herb for addressing the split, as it has been somewhat unclear to me at times as to what is going on exactly here. Personally, I never wanted a MMWA-SICW “split” in any way, shape or form. The two separate shows with different headliners and performers is not what I envisioned when I helped to come up with the open-door policy… As Herb considers Tony a friend, I feel the same about Tony, Herb, Keith and the entire crew.
Even when I am steaming mad or in total disagreement with them, there’s nothing that I won’t do for them. Period.
Everyone has an agenda – EVERYONE – and I don’t think that it’s fair to point a finger only at Ben Simon. There’s been too much finger pointing, gossip, cold shoulders and crap attitudes and I’m guilty myself. It’s hard to have it both ways and not expect conflicts, confusion.
As for myself, my main focus has and will always be Pro Wrestling At South Broadway Athletic Club. There are those that dislike my status within the MMWA and don’t agree with my stance on any number of things, however, I will be at SBAC for a *VERY* long time to come and wrestling as we know it is a responsibility that I will *ALWAYS* uphold!

As for Ron Powers, I stand by my statement… you find the need, “BIG, BAD RON POWERS” to insult MMWA and South Broadway and I do take it personal. Let’s be honest, Ron, you are just upset that you are not a part of ST. LOUIS #1 WRESTLING SHOW! You are not Gary Jackson and it burns you up that “The Great One” is the MO & IL Heavyweight Champion and YOU ARE NOT!
