How We Can Save Independent Wrestling

Published

on

 

Independent wrestling is so important to the professional wrestling world.  All over the world right now, people are training to pursue their careers in the wrestling industry.  We as fans, can interact nth these up and coming stars and really give them the branding and the push they need to make a big name for them selves.  The only way to live out their wrestling name to the fullest is to have a name for themselves.  This is how they do it.

Go to your local Indy shows.

If you are a fan of pro wrestling and do not want to pay the price of a ticket to a televised show, go to your local Indy show!  All over the world there is someone trying to pursue their dreams.  Why should this dream be the dream every one tears down?  Indy shows are great!  The stars really interact with the crown more so than the larger brands.  There is a lot more leeway than a live televised production.  A lot of times your favorite superstars, past and present will headline the shows.  That is a great chance to get some one on one time with some of your favorites.

Buy some merchandise.

One of the biggest things you could do to support these shows besides just going to the show is buying their merchandise.  Buying even just one T-shirt means they have that much extra cash to do another show in your area.  Most of the time, up and comers only get paid enough to cover gas to get to the show, or nothing at all.  They are just purely doing it for fun.  When these stars finally get the recognition they deserve, you will have already had original merch, allowing you to save on the sky-rocketed price.  I personally would have killed to have an original Randy Savage or Undertaker gear.

Tell all of your friends.

One of the biggest obstacles most Indy brands fall into is the advertisement they need.  They rely on Facebook and Twitter shares and loyal fans to attend.  Bring some of your friends next time.  Next time they will bring their friends, and so on and so forth.  Before you know it there could be 500 plus people there.  That is exactly how we can help these future superstars get the training and appreciation they need to be successful.

Most of the time, we are partial to our native country.  We were created here, born here, and live here.  We tend to linger away when somebody brings our home country into question.  In the pro-wrestling community, we have people from all over the world who are patriotic to their own country as well and are not afraid to call out other countries on their flaws.  Below are our Top 5 most Anti-American wrestling gimmicks.

5. Yokozuna and Mr. Fuji

Many years back, the WWE brought in a sumo wrestler weighing in at 650 lbs to the main roster. This man was of the Samoan decent but was portrayed as Japanese. His manager Mr. Fuji, who also managed several tag teams, was considered an “evil heel”. He referred to us Americans as “scum”, often throwing shade to Hulk Hogan in his promos. He once even called Hogan a “yellow belly”.

Starting with Japan

We have all come to love wrestling.  Most of us have our favorite brands and superstars and we watch them religiously.  But, before our favorite superstars made themselves at home on the brand you love to watch, they were traveling the world wrestling in places you only dream to go!  Here is our top 8 WWE superstars you didn’t know wrestled in Japan.

8. Hulk Hogan

During some of his stints with the WWF, the Immortal one was also dominating over in Japan.  From the years 1980-1985 Hulk Hogan wrestled with New Japan Pro Wrestling.  Over in Japan, he didn’t use his Hulk persona.  He used the name “Ichiban” which means “Number One” in English.  While wrestling overseas he even used a variety of different moves.  He even switched his finisher for a brief time from a running leg drop to a crooked arm lariat.  His stint in Japan continued until 1985 when the WWF ended their long relationship with New Japan.
