Shadow Fire Promotions to work with Indianapolis-based Real Wrestling Action, to support Wounded Warrior Project
Posted on 3/28/114 by Shadow Fire Promotions
Shadow Fire Promotions is extremely proud to once again work with pro wrestling promoter Keith Miller in his newest wrestling promotion, Real Wrestling Action (RWA).
This would mark the fourth time Miller has worked with Shadow Fire Promotions; the first when we worked with the tag team The Soul Shooters and the second two with his two Indianapolis-based wrestling promotions, Xtreme Limit Wrestling (XLW) and Pro Wrestling Elite (PWE), both groups now under different ownership.
Miller himself has taken on virtually every role, in and out of the ring. He was initially trained for the ring by independent wrestler "Playboy" Vinnie Ferrari, and mentored in promoting pro wrestling by "Cowboy" Don Adams, who promoted Penn York All Stars which evolved into Penn York Wrestling in Southern Pennsylvania and Upstate New York from 1996 until 2003. After an injury brought Keith's in-ring career to a halt, and he would shift his focus to other duties, hosting the Indy Wrestling Spotlight show on cable channel 13 in Ithaca, NY for three years, providing colour commentary and also doing backstage interviews for the Mega Wrestling Alliance in Pennsylvania as well as the play by play man for Penn York Wrestling.
Moving from the northeast to the Midwest, Miller managed the Terror Tribe in the Extreme Wrestling Federation in Marion, Indiana and TJ Kemp in Wild Championship Wrestling Outlaws in Indianapolis, Indiana. He also has worked closely with our clients, the Soul Shooters (“Poison” Appollo Starr & Drew “Tha Don” Johnson) while in Wisconsin.
After the sale of XLW & PWE, Miller got the urge to promote pro wrestling again, seeing what he felt was a sharp decline in the quality of the wrestling product in the Indianapolis area, with many promotions attempting to emulate what is shown on television each week from WWE, not realising that fans go see independent wrestling for an ALTERNATIVE, not to see WWE done on a fraction of their budget, and also showcasing sports-entertainment, as opposed to SPORTS.
Real Wrestling Action seeks to fill that void, matching up the best local talent with the best talent from all over the world, showcasing REAL athleticism; wanting fans to be excited to be at a REAL wrestling event, and see REAL pro wrestling action.
Real Wrestling Action’s first event is called “Serious Business”, and takes place on May 31, with shows running every fourth Saturday thereafter, with the exception of July and September at the Johnson County Fairgrounds at 250 Fairgrounds St. Franklin, IN.46131 Scott Hall Building.
Real Wrestling Action is an Official supporter of the Wounded Warrior Project, and Serious Business being held in support of this charity. Donations may be made at the event, or online at: https://support.woundedwarriorproject.org/group-fundraising/realwrestlingaction/
Donations to the Wounded Warrior Project through Real Wrestling Action will be made in honour of Keith Miller’s cousin, Sergeant Robert Wayne Garrison, who was severely injured in Iraq and in memory of Keith's partner, Edward Smith's wife Tabitha's father Francis Eugene "Butch" Asher, who was a two time recipient of the prestigious Purple Heart, which is awarded to military personnel wounded in combat.
