About

Every year hundreds of thousands of people go to WWE wrestling events in major arenas all around the world. Most of those people are not aware that most of their favorite wrestlers started out on Independent Wrestling events across the country in high schools, VFW halls and National Guard Armories and other small venues.

Independent Wrestling is the lifeblood of the professional wrestling business. It is where the legends of the ring make a living when their time is up on the grand stage and it is where tomorrow's stars hone their craft as they climb the ladder to pro wrestling greatness.

The idea of Free Pro Wrestling Day is to give wrestling fans a sample of great Independent Wrestling for free. Anybody that wants to attend the event can do so with no admission being charge.

This Kickstarter is to raise funds to cover the venue, advertising, talent, travel and other costs associated with the event.

I am the promoter of Innovate Wrestling (formerly NWA Smoky Mountain) based out of East Tennessee. We have promoted events for the last 16 years consecutively... However, I will not be profiting off of this event. All funds that we are able to collect will be used for this event only. My goal for this project is not to make money for myself, but to increase awareness about Independent Wrestling.

This will not be billed as an Innovate Wrestling event. For this event, We will be joining forces with other promoters to showcase a variety of Independent Talent. Each promotion will send one showcase match to represent them.

If you are a fan of Independent Wrestling, please help us make this project a reality. 

Risks and challenges

The main risk for this event is finding a venue large enough to accommodate the crowd. With this event being free, we want as many people as possible to attend. However, if the venue is not big enough, we may have to turn people away once we run out of seating due to fire marshal codes.

We have promoted events for over 16 years, so we have connections with many buildings and should be able to find a large enough venue without any trouble.
