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
To correct this, the options are to draw back to
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:
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)
Ultimate Championship Wrestling
Anarchy Championship Wrestling
Total Championship Wrestling
International Pro Wrestling Alliance (no shows currently announced)
Miraculous Wrestling (expected to announce new shows soon)
Southern Championship Wrestling
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
