New Gabe Sapolsky Blog: Tale of the Missing Wrestling Ring

Nick Paglino

Dragon Gate USA’s Gabe Sapolsky has posted a brand new, exclusive blog over at The Heyman Hustle. Below is an excerpt from the blog:

"Sunday, September 26th was a turning point for Dragon Gate USA.
 
The roller coaster ride actually began the previous Thursday night. I plugged in my headphones at about 9pm and prepared to do the "detail" booking for the Dragon Gate USA event in Milwaukee. I always wait until right before I leave on a trip to add a few intricacies to the show. My phone vibrated and it was Jay from Mondo Lucha, who had done an excellent job as the local promoter. I immediately heard despair in his voice.
 
There was a real sense of urgency in Jay’s voice. "The ring just canceled on us."
 
Those are just about the last words you want to hear 60 hours before bell time. After a few seconds of being upset and angry, it was time to get focused and just get a new ring. We still had time. Jay and I made a few late night phone calls, but things would pretty much have to be handled on Friday. Fortunately, our Milwaukee show was Sunday afternoon, so it was likely that there would be an available ring somewhere.
 
We secured some possibilities on Friday morning before I headed out my door for the airport. As soon as we touched down at O’Hare, I anxiously hit the "power" button on my phone expecting good news. The only voicemail was from someone saying they had a ring, but they couldn’t get a truck. "How can that be?" I kept thinking, "Doesn’t UHaul have any trucks?"
 
So, back to square one." To read the rest of this must-read Sapolsky blog, CLICK HERE.
