As usual, a couple notes before I post this update. If you've noticed I haven't been posting as much as I usually do lately, I guess I've just been burned out as of late. I can't find the motivation to do nearly as many articles as I used to right now. It's nothing earth-shattering, and I'll be refreshed in the next couple weeks, but this is my open apology to the people who sent me videos to be reviewed right now.

Also, be sure to check out Derek Burgan's IWC Royal Rumble this Sunday on the Torch. It will be the event of the year, and if you're a fan of Derek's work I have a hunch that you will absolutely love this. Check it out Sunday.

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

SRPW Press Release: Steel Rage Pro Wrestling is the newest Indy Fed in the State of Oklahoma. SRPW is doing something that hasn't been done in a long time. They are now talent trading and opening up the Midwest Territory for everyone to work. SRPW opened it's first show in Ponca City Oklahoma at the Hutchins Memorial with an estimated 500 people. SRPW used talent from New Mid South in Oklahoma City, Sooner Pro Wrestling in Tahlequah Oklahoma, APWA in Kansas, World League Wrestling (Harley Race's Federation) in Eldon Missouri, and talent from Oklahoma Championship Wrestling in Tulsa Oklahoma. SRPW's talent trading decision was a great idea for the Oklahoma Territory and gives all Professional Wrestlers a fair chance to work.

SRPW has recently booked 11 contract shows in Tulsa and Oklahoma City combined, to run inconjunction with the Indoor Fun Fair. SRPW is currently booked 2 months in advance in various cities in Oklahoma. SRPW is unlike many Indy Federations. They have a Full Set, Lights, and a Television Production setup. "We want our fans to come to a show and feel important. We want them to enjoy Professional Wrestling, not just skits and 2 minute matches! When a fan leaves our show, they will know how serious we are and they will know how much hard work we put into this great sport of ours. The show is a Production!" stated SRPW Staff.

"Our goal is to eventually run in Kansas, Arkansas, Texas, and Missouri. With the possibility of talent trading in these various states, I'm sure wrestling fans will see SRPW in the boarder cities around Oklahoma." stated Rick Vyoer SRPW Public Relations.

If you are interested in wrestling shows in the Oklahoma Area Territory or would like for us to come to your town, please check out http://www.steelragepro.com and send us an e-mail. You will be contacted within 48 hours. Special thank you to all the promotions listed, we can't wait to do it again!
