Steven Walters - ringsidephotos restrospective

We unfortunately missed Steven Walters' last indy appearance at Anarchy Wrestling in Cornelia, GA on Saturday, 12 April.  We wish the best to our friend Steven as he takes the next step in his career.  Even though I missed the show, I still wanted to make some sort of post, so I thought why not do a "ringsidephotos restrospective?"  I've gone through the RSPDN archives and pulled some photos that haven't been online in years and a few that have never been published.

6 January 2006 - AWC in Greenville, SC.  The "Stray Cat" Brodie Ray Chase ran three nights a week in Greenville and it was here we first shot Steven.  Teaming with Tom Williams vs. T.J. Mack & Thomas Simpson. 

13 January 2006 - Live Action Wrestling in Sanford, NC.  Steven vs. Kirby Mack.

29 July 2006 - UWA in Marion, NC.  In a triple threat match (I think) with Myric Moore and eventual New Wave tag team partner Derrick Driver. 

26 February 2007 - UWA in Marion, NC.  Here Steven humiliates a tiny referee and then looks pretty smug about it. 

7 April 2007 - NWA Anarchy in Cornelia, GA. A very early appearance of "New Wave" - the tag team of Steven and partner Derrick Driver, here facing "Stray Cat" Brodie Chase & Brandon Phoenix. 

2 October 2007 - NWA Anarchy.  1st promo photos with New Wave tag team, interrupted by Austin Creed, now better known as Xavier Woods

12 July 2008 - NWA Anarchy.  Here New Wave gets promo advice from Melissa Coates and Sal Rinauro.

24 January 2009 - Debut at NWA Charlotte.

18 April 2009 - NWA Anarchy. In one of the bloodier confrontations I've shot at Anarchy, New Wave regained the tag team titles from J.T. Talent & Andrew Pendleton III. 

30 April 2011 - Pride & Honor Wrestling in Gastonia, NC.  Vs. "Queen of the Mountain" John Skyler.
