Looking Back at ElkMania 4


(ElkMania is an annual professional wrestling show that I produce and promote.) 

September 2016 has not been kind to me. If I’m not sick, I’m injured, and if I’m not injured, I’m sick. Then there have been days where both have occurred simultaneously. I normally despise taking time off from work or reneging on any of my responsibilities or commitments, however, this time, I was unable to shake it off and work through the discomfort.

With all of that said…

To say that ElkMania 4 was an amazing success would be an understatement. Each year, the show has gotten bigger, better and increased in popularity to the point where unfortunately, we had to turn people away after filling our near three hundred seat venue, which included standing room only accommodations.

The increasing success of ElkMania Promotions is due to the talented and hard-working wrestlers who put on a great show that keep the fans coming back for more.

A Night Out with Eastern Pro Wrestling

They say that you can never go home again. Well, in a small way, I was able to last Friday when attending an Eastern Pro Wrestling (EPW) event. While the attractions on the marquee boasted Ring of Honor and TNA: Impact Wrestling stars, my reason for journeying to the Maynard Rod & Gun Club was to visit with an old mentor and friends.  Continue reading “A Night Out with Eastern Pro Wrestling”

After the Bell: Looking Back at ElkMania 3


I’ve been promoting wrestling shows off and on since 2006, and no matter how staunch I’am with my preparation, problems always occur. The road to ElkMania 3, held ten days ago, was littered with obstacles. That in itself is par for the course when it comes to independent wrestling, however, political pressure reared its ugly head.

Beverly/Salem Lodge of Elks – Beverly, Massachusetts

– BEVERLY, MASSACHUSETTS – Professional wrestling returns to the North Shore as ELKMANIA 3 emanates from the Beverly/Salem Elks Lodge, 39 Bow Street, Beverly, MA on Saturday September 26th, 2015. Doors open at 6:30 PM. Bell time is at 7:00 PM. Tickets cost $10.00 and are on sale at Silver Moon Comics & Collectibles located inside of the East India Square Mall, Salem, MA. Tickets will be available at the door, but purchase in advance is highly recommended!

“The Maniacal” Jack Krueger emerged victorious in last year’s Elkmania tournament as he used deplorable tactics to defeat Salem’s Derek Simonetti. After months of negotiations, Krueger agreed to the rematch, but only on his terms. These terms dictates that the match had to take place at Elkmania 3, signifying the one year anniversary of the humiliation he inflicted on Simonetti, and that the match be a no-rules street fight. Simonetti accepted the terms without a moment’s hesitation as he looks to settle the score on September 26th.   Continue reading “Krueger vs. Simonetti 2 Headlines ElkMania 3 on September 26th”

This past Saturday night, I put my wrestling promoter’s hat on, again, for our second annual pro wrestling charity event, ElkMania 2. Last year’s show was a huge success as we raised $1400. 00 for the Elks National Foundation which funds youth programs, college scholarships, and veteran services. My colleagues and I put together a fantastic show with the goal of exceeding its predecessor in every way and we had a former WWE Superstar to help us out. Continue reading “Reflections of ElkMania 2”
