UPDATE: See Tatanka's Schedule for newly added dates and a 1-month tour of the UK & Switzerland.
"Hau Kola" Hello! I hope all of you are doing well since my last commentary in August. As always I have been busy on several fronts. I've been to events throughout the US with wrestling and also involved at home with our ministry and our NEW Free Clothing Store that is now open in our city every week to provide clothes, shoes, accessories, bed linens, etc. to anyone in need. Of course as you are all aware of the situation of our economy has affected many people and families. It 's such a joy to know that you are part of the solution in helping those that need help. We have people from all over our county coming to our Free Clothing Store from the every day working person and their family, to those financially strapped right now, to the abused, the homeless, and even those on the brink of losing their homes and becoming homeless. Our ministry has now become a lighthouse in our city with our feeding programs and our Free Clothing Store. Over the last few months it has taken a lot of work behind the scenes to acquire the property and prepare it for opening date with the ongoing task of stocking it every week with new or barely used clothes for all the people that come weekly. So many people have stated how they have been blessed by us but in actuality we are the ones who feel blessed by giving to others and truly making a difference in someone's life!

I have just arrived back from my events in Philadelphia where I was present at the big autograph convention named SIGNAMANIA and then wrestled that night for PWU. SIGNAMANIA always brings in all the stars of the past and current and always draws a large attendance. My wrestling event that night for PWU included stars such as Raven, Sandman, Diva Sunny, and myself. The month of October will be a very busy one for the Native American Tatanka. Just like the photo to the left of the elite warriors of the Cheyenne Tribe who were feared throughout the lands, I myself am preparing for battle on the warrior trail of pro wrestling. I will be leaving Oct 7th for the United Kingdom where I will be wrestling for Big Time Wrestling UK owned and operated by Brian Dixon. If you are not familiar with his wrestling company then to bring you up to date they wrestle pretty much every month and usually about 5-6 times per week. Many of the Superstars currently in WWE and from the past spent their time on the road learning and perfecting their trade as a professional wrestler with Brian Dixon's Wrestling Promotion. I will be wrestling there from the 9th of October until November 1st with a Switzerland Tour in between where I face Raven in the Main Event for WWPW on October 24th. My Switzerland Tour is from October 24th with a departure back to the United Kingdom on the 28th for events every day until November 1st. During my Switzerland Tour with WWPW I will also be holding a training camp for all beginning and novice wrestlers for a full day and then the other day will be holding a camp for all advanced wrestlers. These two dates will take place on the 26th and 27th of October. If you are in the area don't miss it because if your dream is to make it to the WWE and become successful in this industry then you have to hear from someone who has been there and done it and will give you the knowledge you need to fulfill your dreams of becoming a successful pro wrestling Superstar!
After my arrival back into the states from Europe I will be very busy until my break right before Christmas. Some may say I will be away from home a lot but in reality it's a blessing to be busy and I do get my time to be at home with my family so when my schedule demands more my family is there to support me and to know what I do is for my family and not for myself only.
A special event noted in my Calendar, which I want to make notice of is the booking I have with Covey Promotions in West Virginia where on the 8th of November Covey Promotions along with myself will be holding an open training camp for all beginning, novice, and advanced wrestlers. This is a one-time event so don't miss it! It's not everyday that a former WWF/WWE Superstar comes to West Virginia and will be personally in the ring to look for new talent and also to train certain talent that come. Come join us to see if you have what it takes to become the next Superstar of the WWE! There are many world-wide with the dream of becoming the next great Superstar of WWE but without the knowledge given by someone who has been there and done it successfully your chances are very slim in making it to the top and becoming successful in this industry. It is way more that just moves in a ring as most think! Check out Covey Promotions for more info by Clicking Here. Don't miss it! See you in the wrestling ring on November 8th!

I want to personally thank Chris Pappan for the personalized art work to the left of me that has been portrayed in art museums throughout the United States.
