Trans-South Wrestling, 6 July 2013

It's time to shake some of the rust off for 2013.  I'm planning on heading down to the Union County Fairgrounds in Union, SC this Saturday to shoot some pics at TSW's Dr Bobby G. Rippy Memorial Tag Team Tournament.  It looks like a fun show, some friends on the card Alex Avgerinos, Amber O'Neal, Cruizer Lewis, etc.  If you're in the area, check it out:

Happy 4th!

 What is more American than Pro Rassling!?  Independence Day is a great time to run a show - kids are out of school, the adults that do work are usually off work, it's warm outside, patriotism is at an all time high - perfect ingredients to begin a summer of rassling shows.  Below are some favorite shots from the month of July:

NWA Anarchy, Cornelia GA15 July 2006 - One of the more patriotically geared wrestlers I ever shot was Austin Creed (aka Consequences Creed aka Xavier Woods) - I first saw him in Greenville, SC at Brodie Ray Chase's WWC shows.  He had charisma and talent that really shined, I'm not surprised he's done so well.
