Thank you so much sir, I knew something like this had to exist. There just had to me some promoter out there who knows and understand wrestling. And no surprise the guy is a former writer for the WWE. The characters are just fantastic, the in-ring work is pretty solid, oh and this Matt Murphy guy is funny as hell lol.
I know right? Sports Entertainment is very hard to find.
Here's how I feel about this: Vince was dead right to say that wrestling is sports entertainment. Characters and storylines are as or more important than the actual wrestling. That's my opinion.
He was dead wrong to call it Pro Wrestling. It should always be presented as a real sport.
I hate that he did that because there does exist and attitude in Ring of Honor, TNA, and a lot of other places that the two are mutually exclusive. I think Ring of Honor and TNA are at their best when they do the entertainment stuff. I love the wrestling too, but without the storylines it just doesn't do it for me.
Metro Pro is in it's early days, but I see a lot of potential in them. I hope it works out.
Can't take the credit though, found out about it in this thread ....
I owe Enlightenddone. He's the one that recommended it to me. He also recommended other promotions that have online shows, but Metro Pro is the bell of the ball.

Really? You don't like Dave? Chris is the one who's off the wall and putting himself out there. I could see why somebody wouldn't like him. But Dave?
To each his own I guess.
I admit it is a little bit low rent. But I like any size promotion if they tell a good story and I think Metro Pro does.
