IWA-Mid South: Going Out Of Business Since 2002

Posted yesterday on the IWA Mid South message board (here’s the whole thread: http://iwamidsouth.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=IWA&action=display&thread=6207&page=1):

Effective immediately, IWA-MS is closing its doors.

Anyone interested in purchasing our ring, sound system, concession items (pizza oven, popcorn maker ect.) or the IWA-MS video library, should call 815-528-0792 for more information.

Thank you all for your years of patronage and support.

So seriously how much does Ian expect to get for what has to be an ancient pizza oven? That thread is something else, by the way. Who the bleep is Billy Gram? Why is he stirring shit on a message board? More importantly, how long until IWA-MS has their big comeback show? My guess is a month. – Dusty

IWA-MS cares about humanity

According to the Wrestling Observer/Figure Four Online site, IWA Mid-South, those wacky hardcore folks from the eastern midwest, are holding two shows this weekend, one of which is a fundraiser for one of their most popular “athletes”:

IWA Mid-South runs Portage, IN on August 16th at Woodland Park and August 17th and Sunday August 17th in Joliet at the Hartman Rec Center. The second night will be a fundraiser to help pay for Mickie Knuckles’ hospital bills. Trevor Murdock is working both shows, and Necro Butcher vs. Too Cold Scorpio takes place Sunday.

It’s good to see an independent company that probably spends more money on light tubes than they bring in on the live gate putting on a show to raise funds to help the chick that beat the ever-loving fuck out of a guy who just wanted to wrestle for the company. If you haven’t seen the video of Mickie Knuckles’ legalized assault and battery on some douchebag (followed by a gutless 6-on-1 attack on the guy), consider yourself a lucky person. Maybe former WWE superstar Trevor Murdoch, who probably used to get a decent paycheck, will appear on a fundraiser for a man who got curbstomped face-first onto the rung of a ladder by some remorseless fat-ass.
