is featuring the latest column from Tommy Dreamer where he talks about launching his new “House of Hardcore” promotion.

The bigger news is that I am finally throwing my name into the wrestling promoting business. I’ve always wanted to run my own show, so I figure there is no better time than the present. After all, I am not getting any younger and all the chips fell in the right places. It’s not new territory for me, either. I ran hundreds of shows in Extreme Championship Wrestling, did a few for World Wrestling Entertainment and one in Total Nonstop Action. They were all successful, but in the end, were for someone else’s benefit. Yes, it is a risk financially, just like starting any business, but one I have to take for many reasons. It all begins on Oct. 6 in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. (which would be a roughly 500-kilometre drive from Kingston for my fans there).”
