Real Warrior Entertainment Cultivates More Pro Wrestling In Connecticut
The guts of virtually every industry are rife with politics and gossip. Craig Margelony has learned firsthand that pro wrestling is no exception. "[Wrestling politics are] very interesting. There's a lot of egos," says Margelony, who founded and oversees Real Warrior Entertainment, an under-one-year-old South Windsor- and East Hartford-based wrestling organization. "I'll give you a great example. One of my shows I was running, I had some guys on the show that were considered to be branded for another promotion. The [other company's] promoter called me up and said, 'I would hope that my guys are going to go over,'" Margelony says, with "go over" being parlance for gaining a per-determined win and/or being made to look good. "I basically told him, 'Hey, I can't guarantee anything like that. This is RWE. This isn't your event, but I appreciate you giving me a call. I can assure you that they'll be well taken care of.' He was pretty disappointed with the way I handled it, but again, they're wrestling for my company that evening."
