Indy News: MLW, EWA, WWN Update, Big Weekend in Philly

Dec 26, 2002 - 9:26:00 PM
PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO BOOKMARK US & VISIT US DAILY


By Chad Murphy

I wanted to wish everyone a belated Merry Christmas, and an early Happy New Year's. Hope Santa brought everyone what they wanted, and that you had a safe and happy holiday.

It's been a little over a week since I've posted a report, and I apologize for the delay. Between Christmas stuff and being busy preparing for a big tennis tournament next week I haven't found the time to post much on the site. I have a couple of video reviews coming up, so keep an eye out for those.

Also, this Saturday's a big day in Philadelphia wrestling. CZW is running their show at 1 PM at Viking Hall, and 3PW and ROH are both running shows that evening. CZW and 3PW are running a deal where if you show a CZW ticket stub at the door at 3PW, they're giving $3 off your ticket. Seems like a good deal and a good day of wrestling. I'm looking for correspondent reports on all three, so please send them to me at the address below.

And as usual, please send all indy news, results, and feedback to me at indynews@pwtorch.com.
