Today we lost a California wrestling icon as Roland Alexander, the man who put All Pro Wrestling on the map in northern California, has died.
In 1991, All Pro Wrestling made its debut in the California wrestling scene. And since then, talented individuals have either got their start or continued their careers in APW. In 1999 the promotion was featured in the movie Beyond The Mat. Mr. Alexander deserves credit where credit is due, and he has earned every single one of them.
In the history of APW, names like John Cena, Daniel Bryan, AJ Styles, Adam Pearce, Cheerleader Melissa, Sara Del Rey, Christina Von Eerie, Awesome Kong, Colt Cabana, Christopher Daniels, Austin Aries, and many others have had their success in APW, and their careers have reached new heights when they left. Mr. Alexander deserves great credit for the development of these successful names.
His contributions to the sport will always be remembered for many years to come and he will be terribly missed in the years to come.
