Set for the WaMu theater on June 21, the official event list for WSM Super Series Madison Square has just been released to IronMind®.
Derek Poundstone won the Eleiko Super Series Mohegan Sun Grand Prix and then he came in second at the Arnold, with a badly torn pec, so watch for big things from him in the WaMu theater at Madison Square Garden on June 21. IronMind® | Randall J. Strossen photo.
