What Georgia State Senate Bill 413 Means For Wrestling

Ryan Clark

Regarding the Georgia State Senate passing Senate Bill 413 (that dealt with professional wrestling), the bill was amended to keep professional wrestling from the strict state regulations. The bill largely focuses on regulating mixed martial arts and ultimate fighting in the state as they will be regulated by the Georgia Boxing Commission. There was a separate section added to the bill for professional wrestling.

The only thing that Senate Bill 413 will require out of professional wrestling events in the state of Georgia is that all wrestlers and promoters must have a license to work. Wrestlers will not be subject physicals and drug tests or fall under the strict regulations that MMA and boxing will be subject too.

We posted the link to the full bill on the website yesterday but I wanted to clarify the fact that professional wrestling will not be subject to the regulations despite the bill being passed.
