AS I SEE IT - 6/04/2002: Looking For an Alternative?

by: Bob Magee

Judging by recent television ratings, it seems that fans aren't happy with WWF/E booking and programming these days.

From his Ross Report, neither is Jim Ross.

According to last week's WWF/E's Byte This, neither is Steve Austin.

So, if you're a wrestling fan...rather than tune out and becoming obsessed with the latest Hollywood mega-flick...or with half-baked summer TV's an idea: try an independent wrestling show.

Before some readers tell me yet one more time "Why do you beat the drum for the indies all the one cares about them"...remember this: most of you say you aren't satisfied with the major promotion in North America.

When a product of any other kind doesn't satisfy a consumer, they normally look for an alternative. If your Ford stinks, you buy a Honda or a Chevy the next time.

It should be the same with wrestling as well.

Here are three examples for those of you living in the Philadelphia area, or within driving distance:

First, CZW presents the second annual Best of the Best, on Saturday, June 8th, at the ECW Arena, with a scheduled 8:00 pm belltime.
