I hate seeing our beloved wrestlers getting hurt and call me a pansy, but I enjoy a great safe match. Now, I have no clue how match rings cost, but isnt there some grassroots way we as fans could get a donation going. Or maybe a few shows were proceeds go towards a new ring? Just make the show cost more so wrestlers still get some money. Maybe like a double price ticket night. I don't know, just throwing ideas out. If any fellow fans, local or far, have any suggestions let me know what you think. Or if anyone is experienced in fund raising type of stuff, maybe you can take the ball and roll with it.
Sorry to get all hippie on everyone, hope you all had a safe and stellar Memorial weekend.

I know the NWA Hollywood tapings use the Mach 1 ring, so there is that option if needed. It seems to be just as sturdy as any ring (of all 1 rings I've been inside of) The thing is, the ropes get used week after week, and sometimes 2-3 times a weekend, so they do wear down over time, of course.
I'd be all for PWG having their own personal ring, but, I don't think it makes sense money/storage wise.

I remember the top rope snapping 3x, once by Ronin, Kenny Omega could have had a serious injury when they snapped at BOLA 08 and they snapped again this weekend. I thought they were going to go when Willie Mack ran the ropes night 1 match 1. You could see the ropes sweat.
