so to give you all some context about this thread, a week or two ago i bought a ticket for an event at my hometown from a pro wrestling promotion called EHF called "wrasslemania 2.0" which happened 2 days ago. then after i purchased it, i asked the owner of the promotion if i could work for them in any way possible. they asked if i can do some ring announcing work, and i posted an unlisted youtube short of that subject. they then contacted me asking if i wanted to perform as ring announcer at the event. and so it happened. for 5.5 hours i was at the location of the event helping the employees for the first 2-3 hours, and for the actual event happening between 7 to 9:30 pm EST. i ring announced the winners and the introductions of the wrestlers. now im going to do more ring announcing work next month on the 20th. we went past our average attendance record by a dozen or so people, but didn't break our record attendance. yes i did get payed, and i feel happy helping a promotion for pro wrestling for the first time. my family has videos i can share via discord if you want to know if it really happened or not.

thanks for the complements, i never received so many within more than a singular day for doing something that took like 6 hours to do. when i said we went past our average, the current owner of EHF told me their average was 120. their record was over 140, we had a show that was basically full with 137 people in attendance.

i never performed in front of THAT many people, and keep in mind i have autism and other problems, but i went in there like a boss and did what i had to do like i said i was going to do, and i did it for everyone in the michiana (michigan + indiana) area.
