Pro Wrestling America

Every sports fan has a dream team they would love to see play together. Wrestling is no different. There is a desire for the opportunity to be able to book their own promotion. In the mid-1990s, the internet was flooded with e-wrestling federations, fantasy wrestling promotions run through e-mail. I successfully ran one for several years. In the last decade or so, I have made several attempts to re-create one.

Pro Wrestling America (PWA) is one such promotion that is seeing a resurrection after more than a year in the dust. The podcast episodes will go through the behind-the-scenes processes that go into booking a territory. PWA will have two monthly cards beginning July 22, 2020. The matches on the card will be highlighted through the episode, but it will also show what it takes to keep a successful wrestling promotion off the ropes.
