“The power behind that show, if you just look at us and how our careers have grown even in the last few months … it’s up there, if not the biggest thing I’ve ever even done in my wrestling career,” said SCU member Scorpio Sky. 

Sky wrestled on the Zero Hour pre-show, teaming with Kazarian to take on ROH Tag Team Champions The Briscoes. 

Marty Scurll, a series regular who joined the Bullet Club in 2017, has been one of the biggest beneficiaries of the show. His burgeoning pop career has turned into a storyline that like to Elite Karaoke being part of All In weekend. 

“I’ve had, many times, people [approach me and] say, ‘I’m a big fan of you. I’ve never seen you wrestle before. Just seeing you on this show,’” commented Scurll. 

The backstory behind Scurll joining the Bullet Club was one of the first storylines fans saw play out on the show. 

The National Wrestling Alliance was revitalized last year with the debut of the Ten Pounds of Gold YouTube series. The show debuted by introducing the world to Tim Storm, the 52-year-old NWA World Heavyweight Champion who was a school teacher by day and wrestler by night. 

”It’s all part of this revolution that you don’t need to have a billion-dollar company behind you, if you want to do it. You have to understand what an audience wants. It’s not money. They will support you to the end of the fucking earth if they believe in your message," said NWA vice president David Lagana. 

Lagana has been instrumental in the putting together Ten Pounds of Gold and bringing the NWA back to prominence. 

Being The Elite currently has 240,291 subscribers on YouTube. The NWA has 49,030 subscribers.
