All Pro Wrestling is an independent professional wrestling promotion and training school, based in Hayward, California, USA. The company was founded by Roland Alexander and managed by him until his passing in November 2013. In 1999, All Pro Wrestling (APW) was featured as part of the documentary film, Beyond the Mat. Roland Alexander, along with wrestlers Tony Jones and Michael Modest appeared, as they were having a tryout match with the World Wrestling Federation. The spot in the film was said to have tremendously boosted the school's "Boot Camp" sign ups. My personal connection to APW was to it's original owner. Mr. Alexander was a great promoter and absolutely dedicated to his boys in the locker room. I lived in Hayward, CA when he first established the promotion and I was the proprietor of an upstart wrestling web site called Solie's Vintage Wrestling. I used to attend some of the cards and had a regular reporter, known as "jermz", who wrote up the play-by-play for every single wrestling events from 1999 through 2001. My greatest memory of those years was seeing Bryan Danielson (Daniel Bryan) for the first time in 2001. He was called "The American Dragon" in those days and his performances were almost magical. I interviewed him a couple of times and I am so proud to have known him back in those days.
