I leaned back in my chair. My hand clutching the mug of cocoa. It had been a whirlwind few months. An absolute whirlwind. Time flies when you are having fun, isn’t that what they say? I took a drink. November we crowned new champions. Logan defeated Primus -- which allowed Primus to head to training camp for his fight. I don’t know what would make a guy with all the wrestling skills in the world also want to fight in mixed martial arts, but that was what he wanted to do so I wasn’t going to stand in the way. He’d be back in a few months, so while he was gone it allowed us to do some other things.

I switched the tag titles in December too. Riley and KC had done a great job with the belts. Really raised them onto the national platform. Websites were talking about it. Clips were all over YouTube -- but with KC consistently getting tours of PGHW, I wasn’t sure how much longer I could count on him being available. The Ring Generals were available. They were skilled. They had the pedigree and history and it opened up some new programs.

Christmas Chaos had been our best show ever. Our most successful show to date. Our last several shows were all sellouts. 500 people filed into the Oxford Arena to see our gladiators do combat. While drinking my cocoa, I pulled up to see the year end awards and check the status of the wrestling world.

Last but not least, I went around to see if any of our former talents had achieved some gold. Jakob Yoder had lost the RIPW USA Championship to former RMW grappler, Robin DaLay -- so that’s two of our guys to hold gold there since leaving us. Jakob has also won the RIPW Tag Team Championships with a guy from the SWF school I didn’t know. That was nice to see. The big man was turning into a star for them. I hated not having him -- but we were still developing nicely.

2018 had been a great year for us. We put on twenty-five shows. Forty-nine shows so far. I was eyeing our Third Anniversary for our 50th. We were not going to hold a RMW Live show for January just to make sure the Third Anniversary was show #50. I was excited. Beyond excited. I would finalize the card later, but we were about to turn the corner. We were so close to being listed as Regional -- I was going to bring out all of the stops to make sure we got to regional after show fifty.
