South Florida facilitates quite a few indie wrestling companies which feature an array of quality talent (up-n-comers, standouts, seasoned vets, legends).

Here is a video promo from Ronin Pro Champ Alex Chamberlain (Paragon) and video interviews with Josh The Goods Woods (CCW, NXT and ROH) and Aerial Monroe (FSCW, Queens of Combat and Shine) and WWE Legend The Genius Lanny Poffo. Also, Brandi Lauren (Brain Buster, Full Throttle, Platinum Pro, Shine) prior to appearing on Impact Wrestling as Kayci Quinn.

NOTED: Monroe worked a match on WWE TV against Nia Jax, and Lauren had a Women of Honor match for Ring of Honor.
