To all who read this message:

Hello. I am posting this message because I am need of some knowledge and assistance. I will keep my name anonymous because of the people on this board who only post out of hate and spite.

Here is my situation: I have a mother who lives in Ohio 4.5 hours from where I now work and undergoing chemotherapy for stage 4 cancer. The doctors have started a new type of chemotherapy and she is working through the process. Unfortunately, her insurance does not cover all the cost of her treatments and she must take unpaid leave from work to recover from the treatments. She is a blue collar individual just like most of the people who support Indy wrestling.

As her son, I do make a living and use this to provide a respectable life for my wife and myself. I give what I can but I know she needs more help.

I am not here to ask for donations or gifts. I come with only the heart of a son who wants to take care of his mother.

For the past five years, I have been involved in independent wrestling in Tennessee, West Virginia, and Virginia. I have no knowledge of Ohio independent wrestling or what is need to run a show in that state. Do I need a license or a permit to run a show? If so how do I get one? Are there any reputable individuals in the NE Ohio area from whom I could rent a ring? Does talent need to be licensed? Does the building I rent have to cover the insurance or do I need something?

If you can answer any of these questions or have any further information that would be helpful to a fellow brother please respond to this message. Also, I am attempting to book a named talent to help increase the draw for this event and have no idea where to start with this process. I have been told by some if the event is for charity they will come in for a reduced rate. Is this true?

Thank you all for your time.

God Bless.

this is from the Ohio Athletic Commission on what all you would need, it will get quite expensive. There are a few guys around WV and PA that have a good ring, i am not sure about ohio though, shouldnt be hard to find one. http://aco.ohio.gov/ you should be able to get any other information about fees permits and what not. Good luck.

Jeff Cannon who runs OCW has a very nice ring. ONLY the promoter needs to be licensed in the state of Ohio. $200 for license and $100 a show.

Mega championship wrestling does benefit shows a lot. Contact them. Also aiw does ring rentals at a good price as well as hkw. There's a lot of great workers from the area that may donate their talent as well. These can all be found on facebook. Good luck and I hope this helps
