Steve Strout, The World According To Us: 28th
keeping with Media Man Australia's tradition of tackling
any subject, we explore the world of producing pro
wrestling television shows.
only background is as a wrestling fan.
are your aims and objectives?
objectives are to get the word out that the WWE is
not the only show in town. And we want to expose everyone
to the Indy scene.
why and when did you break into the business?
wrestling was something I have always wanted to do
since my early teens,when I went to my first Indy
show,and saw that we can have great wrestling shows
right in my hometown. I really thought I was the only
kid around who wanted to get into the business,until
a little over a year ago, I met my friend Joe. He
told me that his buddy was training to actually wrestle,
and get into promoting too. One thing led to another,
and here we are getting our own scene going in our
media attention have you garnered to date, and recently?
contacted all the local papers and TV stations, and
we are putting our first TV show, showcasing indy
wrestling, on public access throughout CT.

right now we only have our website, www.worldaccordingtous.com,
and our TV show. We plan to start promoting live shows
around the end of the year.
are the most rewarding aspects of your role?
have to say the fact that I actually get to work in
this business. Its always been a dream of mine to
actually be in the pro-wrestling biz.

to be honest, I'm new to this business ,ask me again
in a couple years or so....hahaha
has the internet assisted you in achieving your goals?
internet has been our most powerful tool in getting
this project off the ground. I mean, I have met so
many helpful people ,and great wrestlers, that I couldn't
have done without the internet.

I don't think we have any detractors,yet....everyone
we have dealt with concerning our project have all
been very supportive.

is your ultimate goal?

me a little about your business plan?
pretty much explained that. Were gonna use our site
and TV show to expose fans to the indy scene, then
were gonna give them the real deal.

don't wanna compete. Were here to push the scene,
and help the athletes achieve their goals. We all
need to work together, not against each other.

note: An interesting and honest interview with a young
dude just starting out in the rough and tumble wrestling
promoting business. Will he be another Vince McMahon,
wrestling mogul or just another "flash in the
pan". Don't bet against this "boy".
He got his promoting right - he's in touch with Media
