Anarchy Wrestling report from 9-28 in Cornelia, GA

 
 
Larry Goodman:

With the Fright Night 15 a mere 28 days away and counting, Anarchy Wrestling set the table for the annual Halloween spectacular with another quality show in Cornelia, GA.

In the ring, last night's show was as good if not better than any of the recent TV tapings. The general consensus was that the second hour of television (featuring the Elite vs. Alabama Attitude and Mikael Judas vs. Urban Assault Squad) was the stronger of the two.

Story elements that were introduced in a seemingly random, scattershot fashion months ago have been developed into cohesive storylines. In hindsight, Anarchy made the right decision by holding off on a big show this summer because the things they were cooking up needed more time to marinate.

I was reminded anew of what a great learning environment Anarchy provides for aspiring wrestlers. There is an attention to detail that I don't see at the other independent shows around the state. Bill Behrens is known to be a guy that pays attention to such things, and he gets a lot of help from the substantial veteran presence in the locker room.

Former WWF star passes away



Gene Petit, who appeared as Cousin Luke for the World Wrestling Federation in 1985 and 1986, has passed away, according to PWInsider.com.

Details surrounding Petit's death have not been released. He had been battling with multiple sclerosis in recent years, causing him to drop a substantial amount of weight.

Though Petit competed for numerous promotions from 1973 through his retirement in 2000, he is best known for his role as a member of Hillbilly Jim's stable of wrestling relatives from Mud Lick, Kentucky, which also included Uncle Elmer and Cousin Luke. Petit portrayed a silent and expressionless rural Southerner who did not know how to wrestle—though he did actually wrestle. He joined the other hillbillies in their feud with "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, "Cowboy" Bob Orton, Jr., and Jesse "The Body" Ventura. He stated in a 2008 interview detailing his career that he was asked to compete at WrestleMania 2, but had to decline to an ankle injury. Storyline cousin Uncle Elmer was utilized instead, as he suffered a quick loss to Adrian Adonis.

Petit explained the nature of his departure from the World Wrestling Federation in 1986 to SLAM! Wrestling: "Vince [McMahon] told me that they would keep me until the end of the year, leave me off for a few months, and then figure out another gimmick, because they were just going to keep Hillbilly."

"There was too much back and forth with Hillbilly and he got hurt; they brought Elmer in, and he got fired; Junior left; then I came in, and Hillbilly had a little disagreement with the office, so he took off for a few weeks. We had lost the steam that we had. I finished the year with them, and then started working the independents."

Hillbilly Jim is the last surviving member of the clan; Uncle Elmer (Stan Frazier) died in 1992 as a result of kidney failure while Cousin Junior (Larry Kean) died in 2009 due to a heart attack.

Outsource Announcing Available For Convenient & Quality Voice-Over Commentary

Outsource Announcing Available For Convenient & Quality Voice-Over Commentary

Ask anyone who's helped put together a professional wrestling show - it takes a team effort to make everything come together. Not just the promoter and wrestlers... but a plethora of supporting cast in front of and behind the cameras that may go unnoticed by virtually everyone, but can mean the difference between a successful show and a failure.

Commentators are just one job title on that list of often unsung heroes. A good announcer can make an ok match seem great. A bad announcer can make even some of the best matches unwatchable. While the uneducated promoters of the world are content with announce teams made up of inexperienced friends or family members, or people who would rather put themselves over or crack inside jokes rather than focus on the action, characters, and story in the ring, the truly seasoned and polished promoters know a quality broadcast team only further enhances the professional presentation of their product. But where do you find such an announcer when so few and far between are available? And when you finally do... can you afford to bring one in from another city (or state) on a regular basis?

Outsource Announcing aims to solve many of these problems.

With Outsource Announcing, you can get professional quality match commentary, voice-overs, etc provided for you DVDs, video packages, and any other media you may be putting together, for a very affordable price. With all voicing done in-house, there are zero transportation expenses, no excessive overhead, and no headaches worrying about the quality of your broadcast presentation.

Headed by Joe Dombrowski (as seen on Ring of Honor TV & iPPV; PRIME Wrestling/PWO TV; Executive Producer of "The Montreal Theory"), who brings his near-11 years of experience broadcasting around the world for over 3,000 matches in over two dozen different promotions, and ten different television series. Whether you're looking for a modern style storytelling, or old-school feel, Outsource Announcing can make it happen.

Legendary female professional wrestler Diane Von Hoffman/Moondog FiFi needs your help! PLEASE DONATE!!!

We need help for Phyllis 
to recover from critical surgery 
with little to no income/insurance. 
She now faces eviction! 
PLEASE, PLEASE HELP!!!






















Phyllis 
a.k.a. 
legendary female professional wrestler 
Moondog FiFi
and 
"The Teutonic Terror"
Diane Von Hoffman
has battled a severe ongoing illness 
and is in need 
of YOUR help!

One day she's studying for her finals 
as part of her studies 
to eventually graduate soon 
from paralegal school. 

The very day of the final 
all things came crashing down 
in early June 2013 for her. 
She was rushed in, 
nearly died 
and eventually determined 
to be a severe acute pancreatic attack. 
She spent weeks on a respirator, etc. 
then was initially sent home, 
probably prematurely, 
thinking things were good enough 
to send her on. 

Days later she's back again 
with severe infection. 
She stayed in for a few more weeks 
for several cycles 
of this with little improvement 
of her condition. 

Finally in August 
the doctors found an infected cyst 
and felt best to operate to save her. 
The infection turned out to be 
the very dangerous e. Coli! 
She bravely survived the risky surgery 
with losing a rib, 
part of her spleen, 
part of her pancreas, 
a temporary drainage on her back 
as well as temporary colostomy, 
which is to be reversed 
in 6 months. 

So she's had a pretty rough go of things. 
But now she faces 
a new dangerous enemy...... 
EVICTION

This since reported social services 
indicating no help coming financially until 2014! 
Now she has NO INCOME or assistance 
since she's temporarily out of school, 
little savings 
and little hope to try,
and cover all the bills 
coming in! 

Family now is trying to help 
but the bills are overwhelming for us. 
So we are seeking funds to help 
until extended care resources 
can be set up for 
and asking you to help 
with that as a very kind gesture. 

Thank you for your interest and support 
and many blessings to you. 
Anything will help 
and we can even get you updates 
in her recovery 
and hopefully back to school 
to complete her degree!


















Wrestling News Center.com
as well as myself
(Brian Reese),
who has been very, very good friends 
with Phyllis/Diane
for the past 2 years or so
is asking all of you wrestling fans out there
to PLEASE donate
whatever you can 
and as much as you can
during her very dire time of need.
Your gracious help and cooperation
would be indeed 
so very, very much greatly appreciated!

THANK YOU!!!

to make your donation,
and PLEASE do remember
EVERY LITTLE BIT HELPS.......

Rampage Pro Wrestling shuts down



Rampage Pro Wrestling has shut down, apparently for good. The promotion was voted Georgia's Wrestling Promotion of the year for 2010 and 2011. The following appeared on their Facebook page:

"Rampage Pro Wrestling would like thank all of our loyal fans for nearly 5 years of great support! Without you the fans, there would never have been a Rampage Pro Wrestling!!

Ultimately RPW ran it's course. We helped a lot of people get a good start and furthered other people's wrestling careers. We also provided a lot of good live and televised entertainment for middle GA and internet entertainment for the world. Unfortunately the economy and changing insurance rules forced us to make the very hard decision to cease operations. I thank the fans and wrestlers of RPW for 5 amazing years."
