Carrie and The Squared Circle Expo

The Squared Circle Expo is the best wrestling convention I have attended. It was recently announced SCX V will be April 25-26 in Indianapolis, IN. (As a point of clarification, the date was moved back one week to avoid coinciding with WrestleMania.)
One of the unsung heroes of SCX is co-promoter Carrie, wife of co-promoter Adolfo. Usually found working the merchandise booth, Carrie is a calming, behind-the-scenes type. While other promoters Ed, Heather and Adolfo have gotten in the ring at one time or another, Carrie has remained outside the squared circle. I would be shocked if Carrie ever got in the ring, but it could be an awesome moment.
In or out of the ring, Carrie is simply a sweetheart. She is immensely helpful and nice at the conventions, which isn't easy. Attendees tend to voice complaints to promoters more than praise. I have never seen Carrie rattled, although she would probably disagree. Maybe on the inside, but outside, she is a smiling, welcoming presence.
I will be at SCX V as always and I encourage every wrestling fan to check it out. When you see Carrie, make sure to tell her how great it is. For more info, go to
