"Nature Boy" Paul Lee Qualifies for Mayoral Race

From Larry Goodman:

Paul Lee threatened legal action against GWH News for the story that I posted on September 2. My partner Brian Slack took it down pending further review. Lee's issue with the story pertain to the  statements made by Josh Massey (aka Ace Rockwell) in his Facebook post and should not be construed as the opinions of GWH News.  

Wrestler/AWF promoter "Nature Boy" Paul Lee qualified for the mayoral race in Ringgold, Georgia. Read Adam Cook's story from the Walker Messenger/Catoosa County News site here

This news did not sit well with Ace Rockwell,  another of the most well-known pro wrestlers from the Northeast Georgia area. Rockwell posted the following response on Facebook:

I do not live in the city of Ringgold. I do however, have friends that do. Please, do all your due diligence before voting. By that, I simply mean- do not vote for that lying, worthless, piece of trash, Paul Lee. The man does not know how to spell, much less run for mayor. He scams the community everyday with the claim of being a pro-wrestler and businessman. First, Paul says he was trained Mexican brothers. Their last name you may ask? Miller. Secondly, Paul was able to establish his business through the money of his wife. The guy owns a storage rental facility. Who the heck makes millions(as he claims) off a storage facility? The guy has money because of his in-laws. The fact that he has "pro-wrestler" before "businessman" on his signs, should tell you all you need to know. Unless you are wrestling professionally for the WWE, ROH, or New Japan, you aren't making a living off wrestling. Paul has lots of claims- all of them false. The guy paid his plane ticket to go to South America to wrestle. Paul claims otherwise but I'll trust 4 different wrestlers on the tour and the promoter before I trust Paul.

This is not a person you want as mayor of Ringgold. Paul Lee is the last person I'd want running my city. Yes, that includes ANYONE you could think of.

Open Letter Re: The Church of Southern Wrestling

From Larry Goodman:

GWH News received the following letter via US mail without a return address.

Change: verb, to make the form, nature, content, future course, etc., of (something) everything different from what it is or from what it would be if left alone

Resurrection: noun, the action or fact of resurrecting or being resurrected, being brought back from the dead

4236 Level Grove Road in Cornelia Ga has been known as “The Church of Southern Wrestling” for a fair amount of time now. With the various entities that have run productions in that building from NCW, to WILDSIDE, to NWA Anarchy, to just ANARCHY; “the Church” has been a breeding ground for arguably some of the best professional wrestling talent to come through the south eastern United States ever. The names are prevelant enough that they do not even need mentioning.

What is not commonly known about the Church, is the myriad of other reasons past and present that has made its “Sermons” twice per month so inspirational to those involved. The wrestlers know when they come to that building they have the opportunity to be a part of something great. In turn, the fans know they will witness something great. The nostalgia of that building alone - much in the same way the nostalgia aspect of places like The Sportatorium, The FairGrounds, The Cow Palace, and “THE Arena” - has been a perennial driving force in its success. Being able to put on a showcase in that building used to be one of the main reasons people travelled there. The wealth of knowledge present to advance skills in every aspect of professional wrestling is evident in every passing week. Improvements that the talent has made are demonstrably evidenced in the expansive library and YouTube videos galore.

Another pivotal reason The Church was the place to be was the feeling of family. You must have had your eyes and ears shut if you have not seen the out-pouring of emotion through #TBT, and #Memories pictures that you have been seen all over Instagram, Facebook, and various social media outlets as people from far and wide chime in with their memories of that place.

Sadly, August 22nd was the end of an era. When Jeff G. Bailey addressed the crowd that night there was no “story”, there was no “angle”, there was nothing but raw emotion. Bailey felt it, Slim felt it, Todd Sexton felt it, Judas felt it, Palmer, Behrens; hell EVERYONE felt it. It was truly, and legitimately, the end of an era. ANARCHY wrestling will no longer be running events in The Church. What comes next is going to be an adventure.

Over the next few weeks there will be changes of a monumental level introduced to The Church. Details will not be released until they are complete. Words will not be the evidence of our activities, the finished product will do the talking for us. Sadly, with change comes expense, and timing. Rather than rush into things without a level head or a clear plan, the office has decided to take every needed precaution to ensure success. With that being said, the return date will be moved from the second weekend in October, to the second Saturday in November, the 14th.

On the 14th of November wrestling will once again be at 4236 Level Grove Road. Running under the temporary banner of “Wrestling from the Church” the remainder of 2015 will be based heavily on wrestling while changes are made to the facility and the current direction. January 9th 2016 will be the official debut of the new product. Some new faces will join some returning old faces to help bring this vision to life.

Please forgive the vagueness in this message. The wrestling world has long been inundated with pretentious talkers who speak a good game but never display results. From the wrestler saying “This week I start back at the gym” and never gains a pound of healthy muscle, to the promoter saying “We are working on a TV deal, you will be huge” just to cancel the show, all involved in the business have seen their fair share of bullshit. The fans of the product have no doubt felt it as well, often being robbed of tremendous entertainment because of personal issues unknown. While we will not claim to be perfect, the approach to this organization is to bring back what has long been missing from wrestling. The why. Why do you do this? Why do you wrestle? Why do you watch? Why do you love this?

New NWA World Heavyweight Champion Crowned

From Larry Goodman:

Jax Dane defeated Tenzan at the August 29 NWA Branded Outlaw Wrestling event in San Antonio to become the new NWA World Heavyweight Champion.

CWF Mid-Atlanta Report from Gibsonville, NC on August 29

From Jeff Richards:

Weaver Cup Wraps Up with Weaver, Kernodle

GIBSONVILLE (NC) -- The culmination of a summer-long tourney designed to cross-section the calendar year topped off with a pair of pushes. CW Mid-Atlantic carefully designs and bookends its big shows around lengthy chases, plot turns and glory.

On the tail end of this summer's tournament were former Mid-Atlantic Champion Roy Wilkins and new babyface Chet Sterling. The two were engaged in what is annually called the Johnny Weaver Memorial Cup Tournament, created to enhance CWF talent. Stars are born, and pushes are often re-generated. Such is the case with Wilkins, this year's winner, who is worthy of a renewal.

Sterling also has been humanized with a gut-wrenching win over new champion Marcellus King and losing the final. They say while the cat's away the mice will play. With big guns such as Trevor Lee and Andrew Everett crisscrossing the country, CWF continues to replenish its talent roster. The fans actually went gaga over underdog Sterling and also the handsome Jesse Adler as a semi-finalist.

Attendance was right at 105, not a sell-out but considering it was the 3rd show this month, right in line. These fans @ the Sportatorium know each other, sort of bond with each other like you would at a funeral or church service. They love their heroes, whether the participants are wet behind the ears or have cauliflowered ears.

Going forward, booker Brad Stutts has generated interest in the bigger picture: fall brawling until BattleCade in December. Let's see how this road commences....

Atlanta Wrestling Entertainment was in the zone at “Follow the White Rabbit”. For the first time in the company’s existence, AWE fully lived up to the W and the E in the name. 

The promotion in search of an audience for their product has found one. 

The crowds at Legacy ATL are growing (100 SRO on Sunday) and they get what AWE is doing. They don’t mind the R-rated mindset. Four letter words fly freely. Cruel and heartless violence abounds, and the AWE fans wouldn’t have it any other way. They had passion for this show in a way that no AWE crowd has ever had. 

I’m starting to enjoy the funky feeling of the venue. I only wish the ceiling was higher. Guys having to watch their heads on top rope moves is so rinky dink.

AWE continues to present the talent and the unique match ups that cannot be seen anywhere else in Georgia. This show featured top independent talent from Tennessee, North Carolina, and New Jersey.

Throughout the event, the message was to expect the unexpected. I guess Chip Day’s heel turn was somewhat predictable, but little else about the show was.  

And we’re even seeing some follow through on the stories. There’s a strong flavor of Memphis heat in the the booking. The heels are running roughshod. The balance of power is heavily in their favor. It’s not clear who is going to fill the Jerry Lawler role and dish out the comeuppance..The babyfaces receiving the biggest responses (Cedric Alexander and Shane Strickland) are not part of the regular roster. That could become problematic over the long haul.   

Make no mistake, this show had great wrestling. Jimmy Rave and Cedric Alexander had a match of the year candidate in the main event. Good thing, because otherwise the opening match (Day vs. Strickland) would have been as good as it got. 

The interview segments hosted by promoter Josh Wheeler were more in natural flow of the show than they were a month ago. Wheeler is getting more comfortable with the interviewer/ring announcer role.
