Fortunately, the folks at Supreme Wrestling Entertainment are much nicer than KC. They invited me and my Wrestle Beat co-host Scott Beatty to Rubicon (WI) for a night of SWE action. Scott and I made the trek for the Extreme Halloween show on October 13.
The first good sign was their decorations for the Halloween-themed event. They put a lot of attention to details and put real care in everything. It wasn't just some pumpkins and witches taped to the walls. Sometimes, the little things leave impressions.
The rest of the night got even better. The place was packed with rabid (but not obnoxious) fans, who cheered and booed all night and basically had a fun time. The wrestling action was excellent. We witnessed technical wrestling, tough brawling and a bit of high flying. A couple matches spilled into the audience (with one going all the way to the hallway and restrooms before returning to the ring). The wrestling was as good as I have seen on the indy scene.
The entire SWE staff was fun and polite. The drinks were reasonably priced. They had cool merchandise, including trading cards!!
Indy wrestling can be all over the board. SWE was right on target though. They delivered an exciting night of wrestling suitable and entertaining for all ages.
We met a few of the wrestlers prior to the night of action and the rest after the matches ended. We got interviews with virtually all of the SWE talent there, even that nasty KC (although I let Scott handle that one). I could write about each one, but I would rather let them via their interviews tell you all about themselves.
I will start with the champ, Storm. Storm is working on a fan page. Until then, find him on SupremeWrestlingEntertainment.com.
