On Friday the 13th in Waterloo, Iowa Impact Pro Wrestling was in action at the 5 Sullivan Brothers Convention Center. This card was part of the Dan Gable International Wrestling Museum George Tragos/Lou Thesz Hall of Fame induction weekend.
When the doors opened for the event at 5:30 there was an autograph signing session with all the wrestlers who were in town for the hall of fame. One of the men there to get an award from the hall of fame was former PWI senior editor Bill Apter. I was excited to finally meet the man who inspired me to be a ring side photographer.
