    Southern Illinois Championship Wrestling (the best), Mid-States Wrestling and Continental Championship Wrestling are fine shows but they are weekly territory style shows and not workrate indies.

      This is exactly the type of wrestling I want to watch nowadays. I've been marathoning NWA Wildside and would like to marathon something more modern but not 'modern' if you know what I mean.

        Definitely give IWA Puerto Rico a try as well. Youtube has a subtitle feature that can translate most of the things they say. All of the PR feds are old school/Attitude Era type of shows with masked guys, heel managers and solid heel/face alignments.

    gcw is complete dogshit and openly steals from other promotions now

    Deadlock is black homosexual shit because gays and blacks work cheap

    West coast indies never mattered any less than they do now since PWG folded, and chris hero got veny deported because he didn't do the proper visa paperwork so frick that whole scene.

    Theres several american joshi promotions now. one headed by a failed actress and her asian husband, one by a team of rich art students and one by a fat mark that turned his company in a lolcow within 2 shows

    East coast indies are a mess because all of them share the same 20 guys and no one gets over because each indie promoter wants their guy pushed to the moon instead of a collective of promoters saying 'this will be the guy to draw us some tickets when we book him'. You could put a poster of all the modern shindie shitters and then any three letter promotion on the poster and I'd believe that was the show. There's zero identity among anyone

      i think it's because they run shows in bumfrick north carolina and the people who will actually go to an indie wrestling show there are black guys who wear dragonball z shirts
      that one art school joshi fed that streams shows on tiktok under a bridge or whatever is hilarious

      Triple H is the one who really started killing the indies.

        When did this homie rape someone?

          potentially that's why he dropped the NJPW TV title. Reportedly, he's not out of the company yet. In fact, he was at Battle Riot this past Saturday and was given a shot at the MLW World Championship belt.

            So the person who accused him of rape went to the police, right?
