WrestlePOST – Pro Wrestling Under Your Thumb

Armed with a background of both marketing and 20 years of restaurant management experience, RJ had worked for the West Coast Wrestling Connection (WCWC) as a referee, ring announcer and interviewer for five years. One of his last projects with The WCWC was to create an app for them.

Once their weekly television show came off the air this past December, RJ had an opportunity to move on. He figured, “Why not create an app for everybody?”

“That is one of the main reasons I did it,” said RJ. “Any database out there that I have found is messy and out of date if you’re looking for pro wrestling promotions, so I wanted to bring those two things together.”

Thus, the WrestlePOST app was launched in March 2019 with the purpose of being a tool for fans, promotions and wrestling talent to find each other, buy and sell gear, merchandise and equipment, as well as post and find other wrestling-related services.

“In the time I spent in wrestling getting to know the performers, if there is a struggle, it’s [for] independent contractors to market themselves and try to promote themselves and get booked,” said RJ.

WWE NXT TakeOver: XXV Preview/Predictions

By Nicholas Jason Lopez

All Elite Wrestling grasped the wrestling world after their first Pay-Per-View last week, topped off with a Five-Star Rhodes Brothers match, Awesome Kong, a tag team classic between The Young Bucks and Fenix/Pentagon Jr. and of course, Jon Moxley (the former Dean Ambrose of WWE fame) at the end.

Anybody who looked to WWE for an answer was left hopeless on Raw and SmackDown, side for a surprise mention by Sami Zayn on Raw.

The only true competitor with WWE’s name is its NXT brand, spearheaded creatively by Triple H. The 25th TakeOver event celebrates all that has happened before while also giving us another five-match standout card to feast on.

The essence of TakeOver is the heart of NXT itself – it’s where the up-and-comers showcase their true potential. Who knows where we would be if we didn’t get Zayn-Shinsuke Nakamura, Bayley-Sasha Banks, Johnny Gargano-Adam Cole and The Revival-#DIY, amongst other countless memorable bouts? It’s matches like those that have elevated NXT to the bar that has been set for wrestling expectations in 2019.

TakeOver has become more than a live event. It’s a movement. Beyond that, it has happened in America, United Kingdom, Canada and other places. It has brought NXT to the conversation of actual world domination.

Triple H’s formula to build stars, sign big names, focus on wrestling and characterization is one for success. It’s hard to believe there have been 25 TakeOvers, but we don’t think anybody will disagree that NXT can make 25,000 more TakeOvers for all we care.
