put, there are those that are good to do business with, and those that are not.
the benefit of our wrestling and media savvy readership, we are going to list
some promoters that we can highly recommend, and if an organisation is not listed,
there may be a good reason for it, whether it be that they don't return phone
calls and e-mails, are "dodgy", don't pay for goods and services, advertise
wrestling cards and performers that won't occur, or just plain rip-off artists
and con men.
great promoters may have been or are, great wrestlers, and some great wrestlers,
many be poor promoters. Examining each on their merits is clearly the best method
needs to be emphasized that there are many great promoters and wrestling promoters
down under in Australia, however it is a case of buyer beware!
