I am asking a question that is directed to any worker, promoter, booker, or anyone affiliated with indy wrestling shows in this tri-state region. Where the hell are the storylines? Ive followed many of the wrestling promotions via youtube, this board, and seen a few in person. I guess, you could all call me a smart mark, smark, etc. But, I do not ask this question to offend anyone. Please let me make that clear. I have the utmost respect for any of you that have the talent to step into that ring and entertain me. But honestly, where are the story lines? The part that we the fans get into, the reason we want to buy that next ticket and watch your show. There really is a lot of excellent talent throughout our region, but it seems like they are never used in that vein. Would a Hollywood producer just throw an actor on the stage without an idea of what the story is about? What I generally see is a cluster of various matches that are just thrown together. Wrestlers can only do so much, they put their bodies and souls on the line, they shouldnt be solely responsible for making your show work. Instead of going in the back, talking about the technical aspect of the match you booked, and congratulating each other on being masters of the universe, why dont you do what you promise to do; entertain us. I personally dont care about seeing a huge WWE, TNA, WCW name; I care about that guy or girl that I get to see every month and hang on to see what they will do next. Please, for the love of God someone pull me in, enough with the exhibition matches.

Thanks.

Good Point, however you obviously don't go to the promotions with actual storylines like RWA, ASWA, HKW, WAR, MCW (Alliance) or OCW.

all i see on here is he's a mark your a mark or he's a yarder. did you guys not start wrestling because you liked watching it or your favorite wrestler? and your saying you never did any backyard wrestling of any kind when you was a kid? so now your saying mick Foley, the hardy's , edge are backyarders? mick foley is on of the biggest names to come out of the backyard. or is it that you have to spend 7,000 0r even 10,000 up front or who you are trained by. well what if i was trained by some of the people that came from monster factory and by some of al snows top guys and did some training with truth martini? but got stuck at a fed where the promoter did not give to shits about his wrestlers and fucked them over anyway he could. i payed my dues i did set up and tear down hell most of the time i did it by my self i gave my money to help pay for big names when he did not make enough to pay them i was his go-fore guy i did the job all the time as i watched his best friends get the push thy did not earn for twelve years. i worked to jobs and still never missed a practice or a show. i wrestled for him with broken ribs shattered mouth but i stayed on the back burner because i knew i would not make it big hell i think i did't want to go big time. i been werstling 14 years now. sorry i just needed to vent and i know what responses this will gets so let it be'

your a worker but your signed as "Indy Fan?" That confuses me a bit. You are missing the point. Sure we all wrestled in the yard as ten year old kids. Backyarders that We commonly refer to on this board are people who wrestle as adults that have never been trained to by a true PRO to bump and feed and hit the ropes and just want to backdoor their way into the industry without paying any dues/ not paying for a dime of training. There is a group that runs in Johnstown, Pa that is a prime example of what i am talkin about. wrestlers not trained. or if were trained they were trained by someone not qualified to train them. Refs that were never properly by anyone who is a veteran. In these cases it is like the blind leading the blind. if you have been "working" as many years as you claim, then this really should not have to be spelled out for you. Since you asked, there it is.
