Wrestling Arenas

In my first book "Do YA Wanna Be A Wrestler, Kid?" I wrote about some of the worst venues that I have wrestled in over the years. In my new book "It Takes All Kinds The People, Places, and Events That Make Pro Wrestling" I talk about some of those great magical arenas I have wrestled in.

Talking with Misty about all the places I have been it got me to thinking. I have wrestled in just about every kind of building good or bad you can think of. An old timer wrestler told me when I started if they can get a ring in it and sale tickets you will end up wrestling there one day.

The Lord has blessed me to able to do this for a long time. I have been in 11,000 seat Coliseum to 125 seat American Legion Halls. If I have not made it to your home town yet. I hope to before I'm done. I love wrestling in all kinds of places from Big Cities to some rural communities. I like meeting the people. It takes all kinds to make up wrestling.

Below is a few places I have been over the years. Don't forget both of my books are on sale top right hand side of my pages.
