Pro Wrestling Blitz Shuts Down after Many Years

After many years, countless events around the Chicagoland area, and thousands of fans watching the best independent professional wrestling, I Tony Scarpone has decided to shut down Pro Wrestling Blitz.

“I’ve been in this business for over 19 years, the past 10 or so running Pro Wrestling Blitz. After spending so much time and energy with this company, I am at a crossroad both personally and professionally and I feel like it is time for a break.

I want to first thank all the men and women who made Pro Wrestling Blitz possible. The sound and lights crew that made our shows look like the best in the midwest, as well as everyone that helped set up and tear down the ring every show. Of course, a huge thanks to all the performers of Pro Wrestling Blitz. There are too many to thank individually, but all of their skill and athleticism were second to none. Working with all these fine men and women has been the highlight of my career, and I’m sure that all of them will move on to bigger and better things.

Finally, and most importantly, I want to say thank you to all the fans that came out to our shows. Your support and dedication to this company made working every single day an absolute joy. Without you, there would never have been a Pro Wrestling Blitz. I am honored and humbled that all of you spent your hard earned money watching our shows, and I hope you always left a Pro Wrestling Blitz show with a smile on your face.”

I concluded this with, “I do want to say, this isn’t goodbye. Goodbyes are forever, so for now, let’s just call it...see you later.”
