#3. BAD PROMOTER ALERT!
I received a call from a former WWE superstar a couple weeks ago regarding a promoter out of Ontario, Canada named Andrew Goodwin. This wrestler was very "bothered" by said promoter (see how I worked that into the theme of this column?) and wanted me to help spread the word.
Chris "Tatanka" Chavis said the following about Goodwin on his Facebook account earlier this year: "All wrestlers, promoters, & corporations beware of an Andrew Goodwin from Kitchener, ON, Canada. Ask around & u will find out the truth!"
Chavis further explained, "Andrew tried to take advantage of the guys and others who were there to help at Toronto Comic Con but Million $ Man and myself would not allow it. He even left 2 Time Hall of Famer Tony Atlas without a ride to the airport (that is from Toronto to Buffalo). No respect for true Legends and Hall of Famers and someone like that can not be in our business!"
The wrestler that contacted me had a bad dealing with Goodwin during the recent CWI "Fall Tour" in Canada. Goodwin apparently didn't have all of his money, made the wrestler pay for his own hotel and was a "creepy" individual that made the wrestler's trip uncomfortable all weekend.
So, as Tatanka stated..wrestlers and promoters beware of Andrew Goodwin out of Ontario.
