Expanding YOUR Horizons (EYH) an Ohio organization that provides unique and exciting community events for children and adults with developmental disabilities and their families, has been a great supporter of Indy Wrestling in Ohio, taking their clients to various events and promotions throughout the state. They recently posted a blog about their experiences at Ohio Indy Wrestling shows, and their latest event with World’s Best Wrestling in particular.
Pro wrestling is often overlooked as an art form and style of entertainment by many, it’s great to see an organization that provides such a vital and needed service to the community as EYH appreciate the bond created by the sport we all know and love.
Below is the article they published:
“In the world of entertainment, there are few businesses that combine the art of theater with athletic ability like those involved in the wrestling entertainment industry.
In the world of EYH, there are few community Events that combine the drama of watching athletes perform during a live sporting Event with the opportunity to befriend those same athletes. However, we have found that perfect combination by partnering with many local wrestling companies and the latest community opportunity presented itself at the World’s Best Wrestling (WBW) Event.
WBW recognizes the need to open each and every Event with excitement and they have chosen our very own Matthew, from Meigs County, to open their Events with by singing the Star Spangled Banner. You can watch his rendition by clicking this link: http://youtu.be/MytlkU-AFuI
But that is just the start of an amazing evening of wrestling matches that cultivate community inclusion and culminate in friendships that last long after the final bell.
In the end, it doesn’t matter if you are a face or a heel; you’ll always find friends with EYH.”
World’s Best Wrestling President Dude Rock was asked to comment for this article about his experience with EYH at WBW events, “EYH brings such an energy to the WBW events. Many of the WBW wrestlers know the fans from EYH from various events around the Ohio Indy circuit. Everyone on the staff from the referees to the wrestlers look forward just a little more to the events attended by EYH. The friendships we’ve made either at pre-show meet and greets, intermission autograph signings, or getting cheered by the EYH crowd will last a lifetime”.
