By Jon Koeller, Torch Team Contributor

Welcome Indy Fans!

The focus for this Indy Report will be on a couple of indy "super cards" that were recently offered. Namely, be sure to check out the results of the recent ECPW and NWS cards - such names as Honky Tonk Man, Kamala, Tito Santana, and Tony Atlas - appeared, and by all accounts, were part of respectable-to-great (depending on whom you ask) shows. Both shows were well attended and seemed to satisfy.

I've got some other event results as well, and plenty of upcoming event notices. If you do not see your favorite promotion featured below, be sure to check back soon, as I'll have another Indy Report out within a few days.

Thanks for all of the continued positive feedback I've received with this report. It appears to be helpful in keeping fans tuned-in to the various scenes on the indy circuit, as a one-stop shop of sorts. As we head into the summer, and various promotions start to offer their summertime shows, I'll make sure to keep you as abreast as possible of all of their respective happenings.

Now.......on to some news:
