Ring Of Honor Wrestling's "The Kingpin" Brian Milonas and referee Mike Crockett take a deep dive into the New England pro wrestling scene and how it's changed over the years. Inspired by the WWE Network's recent Hidden Gems featuring Hanson and Tommaso Ciampa, we look at what it took in the early 2000s to get booked for TV in New England. Crockett discusses the "three islands" of local independent wrestling he learned about when first attending shows in 1991. Hear about The Kingpin's early days working for Tony Atlas in Maine, and how Limitless Wrestling really changed the reputation of wrestling in Vacationland. Also, we highlight Beyond Wrestling and what its increased exposure has meant for NXT in particular. We touch on just about everything in this in-depth discussion on New England independent wrestling! Plus, we're rebranding Making Towns Or Made-up Clowns - play along with Milonas in a game of "FAKE OR 500"!
Also this week, this Promo About Nothing is nonsense and we love it, Kingpin the promoter finally promotes, and the verdict is in on "The Doctor Of Style's" occupation!
