2013 Red Bastien's TX Shoot Outby Pete Maguire - Oklahoma Professional Wrestling
A Orginal Mantells Corral with our dear friend Flyin' Red Bastien....
Going through the few boxes of videos and photos that were not lost in the fire, which was mostly from the late 90's through today, we found this little gem. When I was booking for World Wrestling Alliance in Tarrant County, we started the first Mantells Corral!
The 2014 Shoot Out is coming; Saturday, February 8th!
As with Every year, the Shoot Out is strictly for the men and women involved in the Business of Professional Wrestling, past and present. At a time where we can meet and mingle, eat and exchange stories both old and new. A time where veterans can spend time with "youngsters" of the business and exchange thoughts, ideas, and more stories... Red started this group for the "Boys!", meaning No Fans are Allowed at the Shoot Out. If you are one of the Boys and haven't attended a Shoot Out, you need too. Each year it seems there is someone that we loose and doesn't get to return....
This year's luncheon is being held at a Metroplex location, but as always is NOT published except to the Boys! So if you are involved in Wrestling, a legitimate organization, a wrestler (past or present) that knows what Kayfabe means, then send us a email via contact page to be added to the list. Don't be offended if we ask for references and history, if we don't know your name! It's the way Red wanted it!
See you all on February 8th!
For those of you Fans that are interested in the Shoot Out, we are discussing options of adding a night or show where the fans can be involved. So become a site member to be the notified of any site updates....
God Bless, CJM
The TX Shoot Out was started by Flyin' Red Bastien, with help from Larry Dwyer, in 2003 as a reunion luncheon for wrestlers in & around the Dallas/Ft. Worth area (or those that wrestled here throughout the years). With Red's health in decline & Larry becoming so busy that the torch or organizing the event has been passed to Cowboy Johnny Mantell & "K" (Tygress Lourdes) Downs. They hope to make this annual event a afternoon where guys & gals from all over can return to the Dallas / Ft. Worth area and revisit so many wonderful memories & people from their past.
This is John, Cowboy Johnny Mantell, with Red Bastien at the 2008 TX Shoot Out held in Dallas, TX.
Fun is had by ALL!
