I agree with your sentiments, it's a shame that the profession has taken a tumble like this. I hope some day that it turns back around and it becomes as great or greater than it once was.
Being a professional wrestler is a hope for many youngsters. It would be a shame if that all it became was a dream.
I hope the young people out there remember that the goal is still attainable, with promotions like the WWE and ROH. But Indy is the best way to start, it gives you the in-ring experience and a chance to hone your skills.
The only way they will make it is hard work, dedication to the art, and a bulldog tenacity to get what you want. If this is your goal, NEVER GIVE UP!
