Mama Says It Bees That Way Sometimes "ASWF" by Downtown Bruno Lauer

I just want to dedicate this short column to the ASWF and the folks that run that fine promotion in Tuckerman, AR. I made my ASWF debut this past Saturday night. I appreciate the great treatment that I was given by any and all of the ASWF personnel - David Walls, Ricky Rowland and Terrance Ward in particular.

They had a ceremony before the event honoring all the 2009 ASWF award winners, such as rookie of the year, match of the year and so on. I was happy to pass out the certificates while the incomparable T-Bone Ward announced the winners. I was humbled, shocked and pleasantly surprised when T-Bone and Austin Lane handed me a certificate and induced me into the Mid-South Hall of Fame, which was quite an honor.

I was also glad to see my good friend Reggie Montgomery, who I hadn't seen since our old Bert Prentice Ozark Mountain Wrestling. It is always good to be around great guys like Mike Anthony and Austin Lane. I refereed both of their matches. I also got to meet a lot of new guys and seeing some guys who I have not seen in years was great too.

Thanks again to David, Ricky and the whole ASWF crew - looking forward to seeing everybody next time my schedule allows it.....
