In 1999, Jon Gums started Dakota Grappler. The vision was to give wrestling a voice, one that was missing by many sports pages, newspaper and many forms of media available. Dakota Grappler was about to give wrestling a powerful voice, give wrestlers recognition they deserve and to provide the wrestling fans a source of wrestling info found no where else. After the first three years covering North Dakota, Dakota Grappler added South Dakota and for 20+ years have brought fans a preview book currently the only one published in any state. In August of 2002 the website was started. Here we are still working on promoting the sport we love most!
