Year End Northwest / Northern Indiana Wrestling Rundown!

To celebrate the end of 2016 (finally! And man, the hell with 2016, seriously!), here is a run down of current title holders at the end of the year in several wrestling promotions active in the Northwest / Northern Indiana area. Feel free to let me know what I’ve screwed up. I’ve attached as many links as I can to Youtube videos featuring these performers; the videos are likely not from the wrestling promotions listed, but they are there for folks to put faces to names. After the list of title holders is a list of some upcoming events in early 2017, and some guests or matches announced for them.
