It’s been a few years since I covered backyard wrestling. SAW had matches indoors, recently, and I was there to take some photos. There are more photos at: http://www.inlander.com/spokane/from-backyard-to-center-stage/Content?oid=2421706

    SAW’s come a long way. They have a ring, a bigger roster and now an indoor venue. My first SAW show was WrestleRave V. In 2012, they took notice of my review show “Turnbuckle Talk” and when I was at WrestleRave VI, Too Hott 2 Handle & the last Xperience of 2012, I actually interacted with the wrestlers, managers & SAW management and they were giving me great feedback on my show. 2013, I got to work in the company as a ref. Sure, I was green when I first started reffing, but after some coaching from Corporal and Jaxson Bourne, I improved a lot and became a much better ref. Then, last year, at WrestleRave VIII, they asked me to be a ref again. I even gave some tips of my own to a new guy who was being a referee for the first time and was a little nervous. It was a great experience and I learned a lot more about how pro wrestling works. Having taken a few bumps, I now know what it’s like for the refs, when I watch wrestling on tv and online, when they take a bump. It’s amazing to be in the ring during a match and then watch the video playback and see the match from a fan’s perspective.

      I remember covering WrestleRave in 2010 in a backyard. I agree that the SAW event I covered more recently was very different, with a ring, venues and all. I am glad to see that the group got reorganized and is moving forward.
