RESISTANCE PRO NEWS/PROMOTION RUNS IT'S FIRST TELEVISION TAPING THIS SUNDAY
August 22, 2014
Yes, the rumors are true: RESISTANCE PRO WRESTLING, creatively led by BC, begins its long and circuitous journey to national television this SUNDAY, AUGUST 24th, as 4 camera crews will descend on ARABIAN KNIGHTS FARM in WILLOWBROOK, ILL to capture all the action.
"When we started the promotion," Billy says, "our first goal was to figure out a way to distinguish Resistance Pro from other companies. For just like in rock and roll, one has to endeavor hard to come up with something 'different'. And of course remember, professional wrestling's history dates back to the 1800's. So to do something truly new we looked toward the model of unscripted television as a different way to tell our story. The thing we're excited about with this television show is that it is an unvarnished look at the business we all love, with its eccentricities built right in. The fact that we landed on the AMC Network is mind-blowing, because as everyone knows their programming is cutting edge, and that's what they want from this show. I'm very proud of our roster for helping us get here, and I can honestly say from this moment forward there will be no looking back for Resistance Pro."
For those interested, on-line ticket sales end tomorrow (Saturday) for the show on Sunday. A huge walkup is expected, so please note advanced sales are advised.
