Freelance Wrestling is trying to help out wrestlers during these trying times by hosting a weekly show where fans can donate directly to those who are wrestling. The shows would take place in the Pro Wrestling Tees warehouse and stream on IWTV.
Further details, as far as when the shows would take place and any performers who might be used, have yet to be announced.
Things have been a little crazy lately and it's effecting everyone, from the NBA to our small independent wrestling shows. A lot of places are canceling events, which leaves a lot of wrestlers out of work. Most people on the independents work a normal job as well as wrestling, but some, this is it for them. If there's no shows, there's no money.
I've been working on this idea for the last 24 hrs in conjunction with IWTV and soon we will be hosting weekly live streamed events from the Freelance Wrestling Academy hosted in the Pro Wrestling Tees warehouse in Chicago. The idea is simple, wrestlers will wrestle and fans watching at home can donate money to each specific wrestler through a PayPal link as their match is happening, kind of like a pro wrestling telethon.
It may not be much, but it's allowing these guys and girls an opportunity to make SOME money rather than just sitting at home waiting.
We'll have more information on what days and times this will be streaming, we have to be patient with all the chaos that is happening around us. The information thing is to help these wrestlers get money back in their pockets.
In the mean time, please go over to prowrestlingtees.com and support these guys by buying some merch.
Thank you all.
