Exit the "Territory" and enter the "Open."
Recently, it was reported that Beyond Wrestling’s Uncharted Territory would be replaced following the conclusion of this season on IWTV. Now, Beyond Wrestling has announced what they will be replacing their series with.
Drew Cordeiro, the owner of Beyond has announced that they will be starting a new series called “Wrestling Open” beginning in January 2022.
“This season of Uncharted Territory was scheduled to end on Dec. 30, but we have a ring and a room and a fan base, so we wanted to be creative for what to do next,” Cordeiro tells Sports Illustrated. “So we developed this new platform for wrestlers, trainees, and students from schools throughout the Northeast who have voluntarily helped each week with the execution of Season 3 of Uncharted Territory. The goal is to lower ticket prices and attract more fans to our Worcester-area events so that we can start developing newer athletes, provide them reps in front of our passionate crowd, and get them paid for their contributions.”
Wrestlers will be signing up to compete in the series in advance and will be paid by way of an equal split of ticket-sale revenue. Featured on the debut of the series will be Alec Price, Edith Surreal, Eel O’Neal, Riley Shepherd, Aaron Rourke, Channing Thomas, Dustin Waller, Love Doug, SLADE, and Kylon King.
“Performers will be incentivized to build the Wrestling Open audience as they will earn more based on the number of people watching on IWTV and in person at the White Eagle in Worcester,” Cordeiro says. “We want our talent to have as big of an audience as possible. That allows talent to ask for more money, sell more merchandise at the venue, and create bigger opportunities to build a fan base as big as possible.”
We will have more information on the series as it premieres. You can check out results from Beyond and all corners of the wrestling globe in our results section.
