Just heard from Angelina Love (Angel Williams)about her recent experience over the weekend with Dennis “Shady” Richardson, and she was not the only victim as ODB (Jess Kressa) and Chris Masters (Chris Mordetzky) were also screwed by this repeat offender promoter.
The one smart guy proved to be Sandman who no showed.
My guess is Sandman never got a ticket as ODB & Masters did not get their flights until last minute and when they did only one way flights were bought, no return flights. That should have been a sign that things were not going to be good, but Shady Dennis kept assuring all of them that the money guy would make it good at the show, but of course that never happened. Then the money guy was supposed to get to a bar where Shady DJed by 2AM to pay, but again not so much. By 3AM Masters, ODB & Angel were confronting Shady Dennis again who, of course, was blaiming the missing money guy. Shady Dennis’ wife got involved, got agressive and had to be restrained leading to Shady Dennis and his wife trying to move the heat to the victims.
Finally, the three gave up and left. Masters was taken to the airport and had to pay his own way home. ODB drove to Dayton with Angel who had smartly driven as at least that gave her a way home. ODB later had to pay to fly herself home from Dayton.
So Shady Dennis owes Angel Williams $200, ODB is owed over $1000 plus a flight (yes she had been burned before but came believing she’d get even finally), and Chris Masters is owed at least $750 and a flight and just enjoyed his 1st experience with a deadbeat promoter.
Welcome to the Indies Chris!!!!
If any wrestler ever again works for or trusts Shady Dennis again that person should be slapped in the head. Learn from this. Do not ever work for Shady Dennis unless you get all money upfront and a roundtrip ticket and even then I’d be hesitant. Clearly the “Shady” name is a shoot. Clearly too, his mother must beam with pride.
And so it goes…..
