I hear Leonard Simms went broke and sold the franchise to Matt Epling. Anyone know if this is true?

Matt always dreamed of being a pro Rassler since his glory days.

I think he should be named HammerHead if he ressles.

If he stays away from the guys who broke the first owner he may be OK. It'd be fun to see good wrestling.

It wouldn't surprise me one little bit if this is true. That Epling family seems to want their fingers in every pie! They build that nice stadium, they own the WV Miners Baseball team, Ms. Epling is running for Raleigh Commissioner, and now Matt may be purchasing NWA?? What's next?? Is one of them gonna run for President in 2016? Give me a break.

Taking over implies taking by force and illegally. I don't have a problem with anyone who establishes, buys or starts businesses for employment, the economy and pocketbook of the owner.

Jolo Pastor, what do you do besides comment here? Handle snakes in the church?

So many people jealous of the Epling name.

If he wants to open a hotdog shop with square buns... who cares?

His auto detail shop has cars all day long getting cleaned. LoL He is doing fine from what we see.

If he wants to do wrestling, then good for him. More than you going on this site because your unemployed and a stalker.

I am glad if that is true.

Mr. Epling has always been fair with me. His family are good people. Wrestling is better for it with him doing anything with it. Jolo pastor is just plain retarded.

Matt Epling has a reality check coming to him. The pro wrestling business isn't like any other business and cannot be ran in such a way. Have fun dealing with all the massively oversized egos, Matt.

LOL I'd like to see Matt E get in the ring and try to wrestle with some of those big guys! They would drop him like a hot rock.

So true, he's a total loser and wouldn't have his little car detail business if it wasn't for Doug! He's one of the goofiest individuals I've every seen!

Buying into a wrestling promotion was Matt's first mistake. Anybody can start up a wrestling promotion in this state with little money if you know the right people. ANYBODY! As long as you know how to promote it and don't take the B.S. the "wrestlers" try to feed you (and that absolutely will), you can be mildly successful at it, but don't plan on getting rich.

Leonard Sims mistake was that dumbass bought into the NWA. Newsflash! The NWA is a beaten, barely alive dog that will never EVER be as it was. Now it milks the mark promoters who grew up watching it and they happily buy into it thinking they're a part of something special. The NWA name added nothing to Mountain State Wrestling and it meant nothing to the fans in terms of buying tickets. It was just another expense in a business that wasn't making a dollar anyway.

Then you have a roster full of egomaniac assholes who like to think of themselves as being a million times better than they actually are. They like to use words like "old school", because they can't keep up with modern wrestling, which is what is drawing a crowd nowadays. Nobody around knows how to wrestle and certainly don't know how to train the next generation, so we get crappy shit wrestling.

Good luck dealing with Rocky Blankenship/Lance Erikson, Matt. He booked himself champ and he's a complete moron.
