I have been saying this for years and that is the independent circuit doesn't get enough attention from the fans and that is extremely unfortunate. The reason for that is if fans don't like what they see from the major companies then they normally stop watching wrestling all together instead of giving the small companies a chance even if it means walking 5 minutes away. It's companies like CZW, JAPW, and various other companies that have been running mostly under the radar from the large view of the fans for over 15 years at this point.
Jersey All Pro-Wrestling if you have never heard of this company then you don't know Homicide, AJ Lee, Brodie Lee, D-Von Dudley, Jay Lethal, and various others. This based of misfits was lead for the most part by the himself "Fat" Frank Ideavia from the beginning when the doors opened in April of 1997.
Sadly Mr. Ideavia passed away last week suddenly over night. Frank was planning for the November 14th Anniversary show. Now that show will be a memorial show for Mr. Ideavia, his life and his passion was JAPW and now we tribute him as a thank you for all he did for the pro-wrestling business I would like to offer my deepest condolences to everyone was in anyway shape or form affected by Mr. Ideavia and especially condolences to the family and friends of "Fat" Frank.
RIP "Fat" Frank Ideavia
1972 - 2015
