Tales from the Vault – July 2016

This month we take a look back the loss of one of the greatest legends in wrestling history, the return to Southern California of a wrestler who would become a SoCal legend, an early interview with one of the biggest stars in wrestling today, and an interview with Matt Sinister shortly after losing the Rev Pro championship.

Now considered by many to be a SoCal legend, five years ago B-Boy had made his return to SoCal after spending time wrestling on the east coast. Upon his return he wrote a column for SCU about how he sees the area and differences between SoCal and the east coast.
