The independent circuit, often referred to as the indies, is local in nature, never televised and offers a paltry $5.00 to $20.00 per match. It began to gain ground in the mid-1980s, but when World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) promoter, Vince McMahon, testified in front of the New Jersey State Athletic Commission in 1989 that wrestling was in fact entertainment, regulations were lifted and the indy circuit exploded opening up to anyone who wanted to be a promoter or a wrestler. Since 1990, there have been over 250 wrestling associations organizing local matches throughout the country. Today, about half of them are still in business. With the glitz, the glamour and the popularity of the WWE, the life of an indy pro wrestler is quite the contrary.
