Changes to The San Antonio Independent Wrestling Scene

In January of 2006, The San Antonio Independent Wrestling Scene was born. Over the next 3 plus years, The Scene underwent many changes. One of the most significant changes occurred in February 2007 when the report drifted outside Bexar County to a show in Seguin. Once that boundary was crossed, there was no turning back as results from shows covering over a dozen different counties were reported. At no time, however, was the purview or range of The Scene defined. At times it was totally arbitrary that one promotion’s shows were reported, while another in the same geographic area was ignored.


To correct this, the options are to draw back to Bexar County or to define a boundary beyond. With so many promotions concentrating on locations outside San Antonio, the idea of retracting to Bexar County is frankly unacceptable. Therefore, from this point on, the Scene will cover and report results and champions from any legitimate promotion based within the 210, 830 or 512 area codes.


One person cannot possibly hope to attend every show in an area covering such a large area, so I am soliciting reports from readers, fans, promoters and wrestlers attending these shows, I am in need of as much help and input as I can get in identifying promotions and shows.


Among the promotions I have identified are:


(San Antonio)

Reinagel Championship Wrestling (formerly River City Wrestling)

Pro Wrestling International Entertainment

TnT Championship Pro Wrestling

United Championship Wrestling

Mexican American Lucha Libre

Warriors 4 Christ Wrestling

Texas Wrestling Association (expected to restart in October)

Texas Wrestling Entertainment (no shows currently announced)

Southwest Championship Wrestling (no shows currently announced)


(New Braunfels)

Ultimate Championship Wrestling


(Austin)

Anarchy Championship Wrestling

Total Championship Wrestling


(Eagle Pass)

International Pro Wrestling Alliance (no shows currently announced)


(Kerrville)

Miraculous Wrestling (expected to announce new shows soon)


(Surrounding Areas)

Southern Championship Wrestling

South Texas Pro Wrestling

Texas Wrestling Federation


If I have left any qualifying promotion off this list, please send me a message immediately. Additionally, if anyone has information concerning the champions and upcoming shows of any of these promotions, please contact me.


With this expanded area of concern, another significant change must be made. For the last couple of years, I have named several awards for various categories and have conducted a reader vote for Wrestler of the Year. This year, winners of these awards will come from any of the eligible promotions. In December, I will be accepting nominations for several awards including:

Rookie of the Year

Lady Wrestler of the Year

Luchadore of the Year

Tag Team of the Year

Referee of the Year

Champion of the Year (a title-holder or tournament winner)

Breakout Star of the Year

Storyline of the Year

Match of the Year

Show of the Year

Promotion of the Year


I will still make the final decision in these categories based on the nominations and my own opinion, but I will be far more dependent upon reader input.


2 other categories will also be awarded.


Busiest Wrestler of the Year will be based on the number of shows reported in the results listed in The Scene. If a wrestler works a show, but I am unable to find the results, that show will not count toward the wrestler’s totals. This will either encourage individuals to send me results, or the award will be flawed and be discontinued in future years.


Wrestler of the Year will still be a reader vote; however readers will not be as limited in their votes. Any wrestler on the roster of any of the qualifying promotions can be eligible for the final vote; however I must be able to confirm that the wrestler actually worked in the area during the year. I won’t be printing a list of qualified wrestlers this year. The reader/voter will be on their own to come up with names on their own.


More details will be announced in December.


One thing won’t change. The page will remain the SA Indy Wrestling Scene. It would just cause too much trouble to change the name of the webpage.


I hope these changes will be greeted with enthusiasm as it opens thing up for more wrestlers, more shows and more promotions to receive recognition for their efforts to provide entertaining wrestling to the fans in this part of Texas.


Thank you

Barry
