Main Event Pro-Wrestling brought down the house with some hard hitting action that left fans more than satisfied. The professionalism displayed by all of the staff and superstars of MEPW, is a testament to the example they are out to set. For all upcoming events of Main Event Pro-Wrestling, visit their website www.maineventprowrestling.com or follow them on social media outlets @OfficialMEPW.
It is this authors opinion, beyond any appearance of bias for working the event, that MEPW will go on to become a mainstay of professional wrestling in the ARLATEX region. It was one of the greatest independent wrestling shows I have ever attended. Hearing the crowds reactions to every move and word spoken, shows just how much they have left an impact on their audience.
