Jody Strittmatter and Eric Juergens founded the Young Guns Wrestling Club in 2002. There are locations in Pennsylvania and on the border of Illinois and Iowa, as well as other locations in the Midwest as well. Strittmatter maintains and oversees the Pennsylvania location, while Juergens oversees the Illinois, Iowa, and Wisconsin locations.
