As usual, a couple notes. First, I had a request from a reader for information on a wrestler named Mayhem. According to the reader, he might be wrestling in the St. Louis area, but if anyone knows any information on him, please pass it along to firstname.lastname@example.org.
And one more reminder to everyone to update your address books to reflect the new address for the indy results. All future news notes, results, and feedback should be sent to email@example.com
