The Following is an e-mail from Action Unlimited CEO Ted Garvin.
Hello Action Unlimited Fans,
I want to start by saying thank you to each and every person who took the time to come out to an Action Unlimited Showcase last season. With your help, Action Unlimited:Anthracite Wrestling has raised nearly $10,000.00 for various charities, and has raised awareness for many different organizations. We will continue as we move into Season 2 to continue this trend with your continued support in our product. I've said it a hundred times, and I'll say it again here: Action Unlimited has the greatest fans anywhere. I can't wait to see all of you at our showcases this season.
Speaking of our next season, we kick it off on Friday, May 14th at the Wright Township Firehall in Mountain Top. Action Unlimited hosted our Winter Showcase here in January as a fundraiser for Fireman Chris Krout. Krout, and the rest of the fire crew at Wright Township, are very active in fund-raising for The National Multiple Sclerosis research. Wright Township will host a Walk To Fight MS on May 22nd at Kirby Park in Wilkes-Barre. It is and will always be our policy to be active in as many charitable causes as possible, so I am ecstatic to be partnered with the Wright Township Fire Department in lending a hand to a wonderful cause.
Our summer is really starting to fill up, as following our showcase on May 14th, we make our first appearance at The Irem Shrine Country Club in Dallas for “Action Unlimited VI: The Anthracite Invitational”. At this showcase event, Action Unlimited will debut a brand new match concept in an effort to crown a new number one contender to the Action Unlimited Anthracite Championship. 16 of the top performers in Action Unlimited will be specifically invited by me and members of my staff to participate in this contest and, in the process, earn an opportunity at a Championship which is fast becoming the talk of Pro Wrestling. I don’t want to get too ahead of myself on this one; I just want to let everyone know that we are always looking for new ways to entertain our fans.
As we move closer to May 14th and “Action Unlimited V: The Reborn”, I am somewhat surprised by the reaction I’ve been receiving from fans regarding the announcement that Philadelphia standout Vin Gerard has been granted a title opportunity on May 14th. More specifically, the concern comes from the fact that, by the virtue of pinfall victories over Mike Vaughn and Andy Header at our last showcase event, Matt Turner is the recognized number one contender. As has been stated in other columns appearing on this site, Mr. Turner has a prior engagement on May 14th and has opted to take what he describes as “a vacation day”. I hope Mr. Turner enjoys his downtime, but Action Unlimited moves forward. Our fans deserve a spirited main event, and I believe that these two young me…Evers and Gerard…fit the bill of what Action Unlimited competitors are all about.
It is with great pleasure that I welcome Ryan “Acid” Zero back to the active roster here in Action Unlimited: Anthracite Wrestling. As many of you know, I was personally on hand to witness his tragic accident at the hands of The Westies, and felt a great deal of personal guilt following his injury. My heart absolutely sank when I saw Zero at our last showcase event, as the effects of his injury were still very visible and pronounced. Like most everyone else, I had my doubts as to whether or not Zero would ever make it back into the ring. I’m learning now, however, that I’m not dealing with an average competitor; Ryan Zero possesses the definition of fighting spirit and is the epitome of a pro wrestler. That he has been able to rehabilitate his injury and return is a statement to his will to succeed and his passion for competing. When I received the call from Zero this week asking for a title opportunity at “The Reborn”, I could think of not one good reason why I shouldn’t grant his request. As you readers know, I was in the process of terminating Head The Ice Crusher permanently. With Zero’s return and desire for vengeance IN the ring, I have decided to wait on anything drastic and let karma take it from here. I think the world of Mike Vaughn as a competitor, and like them or not, both Westies are extremely talented performers. This match should be an absolute classic, and again, it is my pleasure to present it.
I think I have done enough typing for right now. Until May 14th, live well, be safe, and take care. And from the bottom of my heart, Thank you.
Action Unlimited CEO

Ryan Zero Returns May 14th!
At Action Unlimited III: Indestructible, we here in Action Unlimited witnessed what was almost a terrible tragedy. 23 year old Ryan Zero a 3 year veteran in the Pro Wrestling world, was dropped backwards and head first over the top rope, grazing a table ledge with the back of his head as he fell. The entire staff of Action Unlimited rushed to ringside to help the fallen competitor, and ever since, Ryan Zero has been out of sction.
Ryan Zero was on hand during "Action Unlimited IV: The Ides Of March" last month. Speaking with Action Unlimited CEO Ted Garvin live in the ring, he informed the
crowd that, while he did not yet have a return date, he did intend to return as soon as possible. This promise was made approx. 6 weeks ago, and very little information has been released since. We here at Action Unlimited wen t on our seasonal hiatus and recieved very littledetails about this situation during that time.
In that light, what we have learned to day is truly shocking; Ryan "Acid" Zero will RETURN to competetion live Friday Night May 14th as part of "Action Unlimited V: The Reborn" It takes place at the Wright Township Firehall in Mountain Top, 477 S. Main Road. On that night, Zero and his regular tag-team partner
Mike Vaughn have been granted an opportunity at the Action Unlimited Tag Team Championship as they collide with the very same men who put Zero out of action some months ago.....Banger Howe and Head The Ice Crusher, collectively the Action Unlimited Tag-Team Champions The Westies.
In speaking to Action Unlimited CEO Ted Garvin about the situation, Garvin seemed pleased to have Zero returning so soon. "I spoke with (Ryan) Zero today at great length about quite a few things. First and foremost, let me be clear: Zero has been cleared by Action Unlimited's team doctor to return to action on May 14th. Initially, as you can expect,I had some concerns about Zero's health...specifically in a match so high profile so soon. In speaking to Zero, however,he was extremely adamant about signing a match with this specific team as soon as possible." Garvin had much more to say on the matter, but we will be posting his entire "From The Desk Of" feature, so we definitely feel comfortable letting the CEO communicate them in his own words.
As is customary, comments from the controversial Tag-Team Champions have not been forthcoming. And as is usual, we invite either member of The Westies (or their legal team)to contact us with any thoughts they may have on the matter. Just to be clear, this match has already been signed, and will 100% happen on May 14th.
We hope to have much more information on this very interesting situation. As always, keep checking back for more information.

As we here at AnthraciteWrestling.Blogspot.com are hearing within just the past moments, Action Unlimited CEO Ted Garvin has contacted us with your Main Event for May 14th. At "Action Unlimited V: Reborn" , Anthracite Champion "Indestructible" A.J. Evers puts his Championship on the line against one of Action Unlimited's all around best athletes: Philadelphia mainstay Vin Gerard.
"He has very impressive credentials." remarked Garvin as we spoke this evening. "We recognize Matt Turner as No.1 contender...let me be clear about that. May 14th has created some difficulty in scheduling Mr. Turner, so we were forced to look at other possible contenders. (Vin) was able to post a victory over Matt Turner during Action Unlimited III, so this definitely makes sense to me."
The heavily anticipated Matt Turner/A.J. Evers title bout has already been announced as part of "Action Unlimited VI: Endless Summer", which takes place June 19th at the Irem Shrine Country Club in Dallas, PA. Should Gerard be successful in Mountain Top June 19th, he would replace Evers as a competitor in that matchup.
Action Unlimited V: Reborn takes place Friday Night, May 14 at the Wright Township Firehall 388 Main St in Mountain Top. Doors open at 6:30 pm, opening bell at 7pm.
More information will be posted over the next 48 hours.
We hope to speak with all parties involved with this situation this week. And once again, keep checking back for more updates as they become available.
