PostSubject: Tod Gordon Retirement; PWU's "Wrestle-Reality"   Tue Apr 15, 2008 4:10 am

AFTER 20 YEARS IN THE BUSINESS, TOD GORDON ANNOUNCES RETIREMENT:



From the desk of Tod Gordon



It was not my intention for this to become a matter of public record until after I had an opportunity to address my dressing room and my staff on Saturday night, but with the age of the internet upon us, that turned out not to be possible. Itís not a complicated story folks. A member of my immediate family is gravely ill and both my physical and financial resources must be devoted to 24/7 healthcare. It would be virtually impossible for me to devote the time and energy needed to run PWU and my store and be a caretaker. Something had to give. Itís been 20 blessed years in this business surrounded by top notch quality talent both in front of and behind the camera. I will miss each and every one of them along with all of you fans who supported me so faithfully.



BUT THERE IS A SILVER LINING:



Two companies will emerge from what I leave behind. The owner of the New Alhambra has pledged to keep wrestling events happening in that building every third Saturday of the month. In fact, he plans on using most of the same talent youíve come to love and/or hate in PWU with a few exciting additions. After my last event this Saturday night, please check out www.newalhambra.com for information regarding this promotion that will run itís first show on Saturday night, May the 17th to be followed the third Saturday in June with the annual New Alhambra Hardcore Hall of Fame ceremony.



At the end of this letter Iím attaching a release from my good friend John Kashmere regarding the future of PWU and an exciting innovative concept he has developed. In closing, my heartfelt thanks to every independent wrestling fan reading this. Please continue to support independent wrestling and Iím hoping youíll be there this Saturday night at Cuffed and Caged to say goodbye. God Bless you all.

Tod Gordon





PRO WRESTLING UNPLUGGED, the force behind innovations like The Crazy 8 Match, Cuffed + Caged, and the Red Carpet Rally, now embarks on a revolutionary new adventure in sports entertainment known as ďWRESTLE-REALITYĒ.

This Saturday, PWU hosts AL SNOW, BUSHWACKER LUKE, GARY WOLF, JOHNNY KASHMERE, & THE BACKSEAT HOODIES during intermission to sign autographs, discuss PWUís newest concept, and announce the date of PWU's next event. They will also be on hand to give their respect at the retirement of wrestling legend TOD GORDON.

Check out ProWrestlingUnplugged.com later this week as we define "WRESTLE-REALITY"

I'm confused by this release. So does this mean PWU will NOT be running shows at The New Alhambra after this Saturday???? It kind of looks that way.

So Kashmere running PWU again then I guess rumors of him not being welcome at The New Alhambra must be true. That the only logical conclusion I can make from this.

I look at it this way if Tod leaves an they pick a new place thats what must be done. I will miss Tod his a great man an knows this biz like the back of his hand. If its in Levittown so be it the true pwu fans will travel to go to the shows. Hell I know if I can make it u bet ur sweet asses I an my husband Vampire RavenHeart will be there to not only support the wrestlers but also PWU. So lets just see what happens an go from there

Is there any word on who's going to be involved with either company? Same rosters? Different rosters? This could be an exciting time.

Why doesn't the Alhambra's owner just buy PWU? Isn't there any interest on his end? Kashmere must not want that.

And why did it take him so long to think, "Hey, I could try to book wrestling here too"?

I just wanna say I'm sad to hear Tod is retiring but I'm happy to have had the honour of working for him. Tod is such a great guy, much love and respect to him!

Well its mostly expected to be the same faces of the New Alhambra's PWU with the exception of maybe a few and the addition of whoever else they decide to pick up.
