    Before today I hadn't been in contact with him in a long time, still not really sure how he got my phone number.

    Either way though, regardless of how things had gone down in the past between the two of us, I appreciated the heads up so I could get rid of that thread.

    Yeah we had an imposter claiming to be Tommy and doing a rather good job of it, as all of our verification attempts came out positive. We posted a retraction and have apologized to Mr Rowlands for the trouble. If anyone sees the interview anywhere else, please help us out and let us know. Clint (MMA News Administrator)

    From MMANews.com: Two weeks ago on MMANews.com an interview with Ohio State Wrestler Tommy Rowlands appeared on the site. Unfortunately for all parties involved, someone posing as Mr. Rowlands took the opportunity to pretend to be him and went forth posing as him for quite some time on the MMANews.com forums. This imposter knew quite a bit of information about Mr. Rowlands and created the impression that he actually was him. An interview took place between this imposter and one of the writers here at MMANews.com. Said interview was unfortunately published here on MMANews.com and since, the real Mr. Rowlands has been in contact to let us know the interview is a false and that he said none of the comments contained within the piece.

    The interview was removed immediately and a small retraction was placed as a "newsbit" within a regular news offering here on the site. Apparently that didn't get the word out, as several amateur wrestling forums and message boards are still reporting the information contained within the interview as fact. We are here to say as publicly as possible that none of the information was legitimate and the whole situation is completely our fault.

    We would like to issue this as a public retraction on the piece, as well as offer our sincerest public apologies to Mr. Rowlands and anyone within Mr. Rowlands' entourage who was effected in any way by our false reporting.
