New videos added every week!!! Southern States Wrestling Network

AMW Thanksgiving Night & AMW TVs

I will be spending my 4th straight Thanksgiving Night in Hazard, KY. This event will be a sell out. So get your tickets now! You can do so on the Appalachian Mountain Wrestling Facebook Page.

As you can see on the last few AMW TVs and what happened at the SSW event on Nov. 3rd things between me and Lemonjuice McGee's men gets more heated as each week goes by. Thanksgiving Night he is sending his Legionnaires after me. If I can run the gauntlet I get my match with The Mega Destroyer and Lemon.

Thank You

Thank you to everyone who came out to the Southern States Wrestling matches in Gray on Nov. 3rd. We collected over 150 food items and over a dozen new toys. On Nov. 5th we delivered the food and toys collected to the Gray Food Bank and The Johnia Berry Toy Drive
