Why Atlantic City? Says Stand Alone Wrestling’s Chad Minnes, “In 2003 during the peak of AC Gaming, I was employed by Harrah's Resort. I was able to provide for myself, my son and afford a home because of this opportunity. I left the casino industry during the decline of gaming. Atlantic City is so special to me and to be a small small part of the rebirth is the most rewarding part of this. I see a huge future for this event yearly in Atlantic City with a series of smaller events planned as well" Minnes has been a huge supporter of local businesses and organizations while getting the word out and utilizing his guerrilla style marketing tactics to make sure everyone knows about Boardwalk Beatdown. His hope is that bringing this huge event to Atlantic City will boost the local economy and provide common ground for wrestling fans of all ages and walks of life to come together for a weekend of fun and entertainment.
