    Once Grant starts making that t shirt money, we'll finally have enough capital to lose money by running indy shows!

    I really love the Ethan shirt, hopefully you can turn it into something. Other than the Young Bucks a lot of those prowrestlingtees shirts aren't nearly as good in the graphics department.

    Come on, I love the 25 different "*Indy Wrestler First Name* F'N *Indy Wrestler Last Name*" or "I'm A *Insert Wrestler or Wrestling Personality* Guy" shirts.

    I think it's really cool that Raymond Rowe got booked.

    I was gonna say I guess Ray Rowe isn't injured anymore.

    Also, good card.

    Yeah he came back from injury a month or so ago. I'm guess he/ROH want to make sure he's back to 100% before bringing him back in.

    I think Grado will be received well since people seemed pretty pumped about the shows he was scheduled to debut on last year but couldn't because of TNA stuff. Plus, there's a 95% chance he'll be interacting with Dick Justice in some way, so it'll be win-win.

    As for Rowe, even if he's not 100%, this is a good way to protect him, but keep him relevant at the same time. I'm actually pretty interested in the Rowe/J-Pro feud they're building.

    I'm afraid I've got some bad news

    Post by BornToFail on Sat Feb 21, 2015 1:06 pm

    So apparently Tim Donst got a tumor in his kidney and will be out of action for the foreseeable future. He also posted the following on his website:

    Tim Donst wrote:I dont know where to begin.

    This week was supposed to be the biggest of my career. For starters, I'd be returning to my favorite wrestling promotion AIW and having a a title match. The following day I'd finally be making my pro wrestling debut for CZW. A company I saw as my first live independent show at 16 and in the same arena non the less that I made my  wrestling debut for CHIKARA 3 years after that. It was amazing how fate had lined up the stars for me and I couldnt wait to cherish these special moments.

    Unfortunately I will never experience any that. A few days ago I was rushed to the ER because I had callapsed with back pain. It felt as though I was getting stabbed with a hot knife. After several tests it was revealed that a tumor is located in my right kidney. The reports cant indicate whether or not it has spread outside the organ.

    The doctors arent confident if the removal of the kidney will completely solve the issue - if it doesn't Id be looking at a future with chemotherapy. Even if everything is successful they have conflicting reports on whether or not Ill ever be able to wrestle again. The fear is if I were to get hit hard enough and damage my only remaining kidney Id be on dialysis for the remainder of my life.

    With any luck I'll be cursing, sweating and cutting promos in a town near you in the next few months. Without any luck - I cant even begin to think about. I can live with all the pain in my joints, I can live with my neck in constant strain but I can't seem to accept the fact that I may have to live my life without wrestling. Wrestling is my only escape from reality. If I cant use it to escape this I'm not sure what I am going to do. But I have to figure it out.

    I dont want to forget any names so please understand that I thank ALL of you for your continuous support. To everyone that has ever helped with the tumblr, website, t- shirts, music, art designs, bookings etc. An equal admiration appreciation goes out to anyone that has ever been postive about a promo or a match of mine. For any tweet, tag or facebook message I thank you. You will never know how much those little interactions meant the world to me.

    I can honestly say Ive tried as hard and had just as much fun with 15 people in the crowd as 1500. If I am truly done I just hope I made our micro wrestling universe just alittle bit better while I was in it. I put off writing this all week because I wasnt sure exactly what to say or how to say it. Than I realized I never will - so I just did it. No words Ill ever type, no epiphany Ill ever think up will justify how much all of you and wrestling mean to me. I love you both with all my heart.

    It was a pretty shocking thing to hear live. He vacated the title and was absolutely devastated the whole night. The dude has my fullest support and I truly hope we get to see him back. He's such a humble guy and really does love the business.

    I'll write up a review when I'm not so beat. But for now?

    Tim FUCKING Donst! Tim FUCKING Donst! Tim FUCKING Donst! Tim FUCKING Donst!

    I started to well up with tears when he started talking and I could see the look in his eyes. Tim Donst has taken a lot of shit over the years, but that AIW crowd loves him like he was born and bred in Cleveland. And in return, he's put on performances I never would have thought he was capable of. It's clear how much he appreciates those fans being one of the first crowds to really accept him and give him a chance to grow beyond Chikara. He's come a long way from the kid getting smacked around by Eddie Kingston, and to see that career possibly stolen from him is gut wrenching.

    He may have been trained in Chikara, but he belongs to AIW, and I hope he gets to return one day and do what he loves to do in front of the people that really love him. Good luck Tim Fucking Donst. I hope I get to be in that crowd in the future that welcomes you back.

    If I was paying any sort of attention to anything I would've totally met you guys there as Im living in Akron now.

    Looking at that card it looks like I really missed out. Next time gadget...

    I believe the next AIW show has the Young Bucks so, you better get there for that.

    Also TIM FUCKING DONST FOREVER. This shit fucking sucks and I can't wait for him to beat it.

    So, it's almost time once again for the annual JT Lightning Invitational Tournament. And AIW has already began to announce the first of the 24 participants. First up is a man who has made quite the name for himself in FPR recently, and has no doubt parlayed that into a nice booking in AIW. Ladies and gentlemen, Stan Hansen's worst nightmare...



    And, not to be outdone, fresh from his stint in federal custody...



    #3 is the reigning AIW Women's Champion...



    This is already shaping up to be a very interesting JLIT this year.

    Very weird to see Gage announced for this.

    With Guido announced, I'd like to see him and Timothy Thatcher match up.

    Entrant #4 is Former Absolute Champion and 2012 JLIT winner Eric Ryan. Because not every participant can be exciting and awesome.

    If they want to keep packing that nice new venue of theirs, then I would imagine AIW management is not looking forward to that match either.

    Also, this big sumbitch is entrant #5...
