Happy birthday, Clinton Waterbury!

In the history of audio wrestling, you won’t find a name any bigger than Clinton Waterbury. With a career spanning over 21 years, brand new match concepts, and original characters to his name, he is definitely one of the greatest of all time. In 2001, Clinton would debut the audio wrestling league named “Fury“. Clinton would introduce to us over the years characters who have become current big time players, such as mike Edmunds, Polgor and Ultron, Nick Nitro, blaze, and hall of fame stars such as the cyborg, droid, and others. In 2002, Clinton Waterbury and John Nation combined would introduced to us the concept of what was called joint shows. Shows that were brought to you by more than one wrestling league at a time. He was also the man who introduced to us the match concept called, steel ring. An all metal ring, and a pure hard-core environment. In later years, Clinton Waterbury would also introduced to us a brand new concept of recording that still stands to provide us with our current product right up until today. Digital. Waterbury was definitely the brains to get us off of cassette tapes in the mid to late 2000s, and helped throw us right smack into the middle of a digital world. In 2012, Clinton Waterbury would be inducted into the audio wrestling Hall of Fame. John Nation, Casey Scoffield and Blake Galbraith would stand beside him, and enshrine him as one of the greatest of all time. Waterbury is the only man to my knowledge in this sport to be the owner of multiple audio wrestling territories, and be in the Hall of Fame at the same time. Right up until today, Waterbury‘s contributions are still being felt in this business. He helps with character development in the TFW brand, pegasus, who is the son of the great Hall of Famer cyborg, is now a current wrestler on the WOW main roster, just coming up from our developmental brand. He has been a friend for almost 30 years, he’s been one hell of a contributor in our sport of audio wrestling, and he’s one hell of a man. Happy birthday, Clinton Waterbury! Enjoy your day my friend.
