The Professor discovered SSW by accident. While watching wrestling videos on YouTube He was presented with a video called “Jobber Destroyed by 3”.   The ringleader of the beatdown is a gentleman by the name of “Handsome Beau James”.   His mic skills and ability to devastate the jobber are remarkable.

The Professor did some digging on Mr. James and discovered that he is a southern legend known as “The King of Kingsport“.  He is an active 25-year wrestler who also is a promoter (SSW).  His wife is Misty James, a well-known wrestler who has appeared at Magnificent Ladies of Wrestling as well as promotions all over the South.  Beau has traveled around the country doing matches.  Being used to the Northeast Indy Scene, watching SSN was a real eye opener.  Southern wrestling is quite different from what we have here in New England.  It’s kind of like when the young Professor first got cable in the early 80’s and discovered NWA, WCCW, Mid-Atlantic, Georgia Championship Wrestling, and the AWA after only knowing NY wrestling.  The Professor would love to see some cross-promotion matches with Southern and Northern wrestlers going into each others’ territories like in the old days.  The Professor has ordered Mr. James’ book So You Want to be a Wrestler Kid and will review it at a later date.   You have to watch the “SSW Power Half Hour” on Youtube.  It’s real old school Indy.  Just up the Professor’s alley.
