I started playing the IWA three weeks after the doors opened. I left in 2000, but came back in 2003 with my own stable, OE, that I formed with Vaughn Hook and Kenny Irwin. Kenny was kicking butt in the JIL, and Vaughn and I were in the PKL. What a fun league that was -- tons of trash talk. I have been in some good stables over the years, including DA, OE, H20, and wWw. Over the years, I've made some good friends. Some of the most fun times were being on the IWA message boards. I made a lot of my fellow players mad, but oh, well... that was Gothic's way of having fun, LOL. I always supported the underdog and helped the rookies on the boards, and ran the IWA team lottery to get more people to play the game. I was gone so much, I lost a few of my wrestlers in the AWL and the ECL; the only ones I had left are in the PKL. I'm leaving my APO stable family in good hands with Giovanni Rentas as the leader. The APO has some very good players -- Anthony Hodges has been kicking butt, Kevin Perry is an awesome player, and our sister, Vicki Lynch... our sis can kick butt with the best in the ECL. Along with Anthony, they hold their own. APO, Gothic is out!
