About this project
Basically I want to do something that has never been done before. Create a one night only wrestling event Live on PPV which is created by an everyday wrestling fan (with help from a ton of friends), funded BY wrestling fans (aka the Internet Wrestling Community). Every penny that we raise will be spent booking the venue, staffing, merchandise (which you have a chance to get your hands on), filming, and of course the best pro wrestlers that we can hire. However, I can't do this alone. I have been a huge fan of the website LordsOfPain.net, which is a great wrestling news and column site on the web, and two of the top writers on LOP have graciously offered their services. The legendary column writer Aaron Hyden aka "Hustle" is the creative consultant on the project, and with his vast knowledge of the indie scene, we will be able to book the best matches within the budget which you provide us. Also, from Indie wrestler to column writer/internet sensation Al Laiman will be the play by play commentator and voice of the PPV! I have already put in the ground work in licensing, finding a venue, pricing on merchandise, ring rentals, and Film Crew. I also have a ton of very creative friends who are creating the artwork and music for the show. Now all that we need is YOU, be you a casual fan, a die hard member of the IWC, or just somebody who wants to make history. Your donation will make this dream become a reality.
Risks and challenges
Being that most of the groundwork is already been done, once funding has happened, a lot of what must be done is simply filling out paperwork. The only real obstacle in our way is booking the talent. With Hustles guidance, and your donations, we will be able to find the best talent that we can afford. Once we have the list of who we want, I have a friend (who wishes to remain anonymous) who has all the connections on the independent circuit. He will put me in touch with any wrestler we want for the show. Given the endless amount of talent out there, if someone can't do the show, we'll find someone else who can!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Absolutely. You can see progress updates through kickstarter, tumblr, and my twitter account.
My friend Mike Moore, a very talented artist, is as we speak putting the final touches on the artwork. This artwork will be part of what will be on the posters and the teeshirts.
