There was a really good main event last night on the Midwest Pro Wrestling Alliance in Monroe, Michigan with MPWA Champion Zoey Skye vs. Katie Arquette https://www.facebook.com/MPWAWrestling/videos/592515561237414?sfns=mo
Arquette is the niece of actor/pro wrestler David Arquette. I think most people forget or don’t know that there is another member of the Arquette family in pro wrestling because David usually gets all of the media buzz. She was managed by longtime Michigan wrestling photographer and heel manager “Handsome” Johnny Bradford.
Skye is a popular babyface in MPWA but she wrestles as her heel alter ego “Dust” in RISE, SHIMMER, and STARDOM.

The LP Community Center has a lot of Detroit wrestling history. The Sheik ran his Big Time Wrestling shows there to build up the major events at Cobo Arena before the company closed in 1980.
Monroe Sr. ran shows under two different banners: Midwest Championship Wrestling and Insane Championship Wrestling. He was a great guy who let me film events and sound bytes for my old TV and radio show so I could always have content. I’ll never forget his kindness and generosity. He gave many people their start in pro wrestling in the Detroit area.
CLASH Wrestling runs in Brownstown, Michigan at the Sports Center on 6/8/19 with Women’s Champion Nevaeh vs. Detroit’s own Allysin Kay, plus Raven will be wrestling against an opponent to be announced. http://clashwrestling.com/buy-tickets/
