  5. Members of the wrestling community, With somber hearts, we the Board of TNUSA Wrestling issue the news that our Chairman of the Board, Ben Bowers, stepped down last night. This decision was not an easy one but came of his own free will and we all wish he and his family the best in their future with this great sport. Out of respect for he and his family we do ask that any comments regarding this change please be kept private. As we move forward towards the end of this year our Vice Chair, Doug Badon, has taken over the responsibilities of Chairman. We thank Ben Bowers for all of the time and effort he has poured into this sport he loves so much. He has made a positive impact for this sport and with TNUSA Wrestling. Under his watch the National Dual Teams have grown considerably and many more relationships have been formed. He will be missed. Please direct any questions you may have to Doug Badon. Thank you, TNUSA Wrestling Board
