On September 25th I had the opportunity for a double shot of wrestling action. First off I made my way to Hillsdale Missouri for a FREE MMWA-SICW show sponsored by the Hillsdale Police department.
A beautiful day that saw the community along with the Mayor of Hillsdale come out to check out wrestling action, during the day I spoke to many of the fans who told me this was the very first time they had a chance to see pro wrestling live.
Also in attendance was our friend Patrick Brandmeyer who got the chance to join Herb Simmons at the commentator table. Recently we advertised the MMWA-SICW open door tryout and I was able to meet for the very first time Ben Simon who impressed the management so much that he earned the Announcing job for a company that he grew up watching.
The fans also had the chance to see a true wrestling legend in person as Cowboy Bob Orton was in attendance.
The day saw some great wrestling action, plus MMWA-SICW and the Hillsdale Police Department gave away free concessions, plus gift bags, soccer balls and bicycles throughout the day.
I am going to share with you a few pictures of the days events and after the last one click onto my photobucket for a complete look at all them. MMWA-SICW returned to Fairmont Illinois later that night for a great show that my good friend Mike Van Hoogstraat was able to capture so please check back for MWR in the future for this and all your MMWA-SICW news.
