NWL Announces Fight Club Memberships, Including Perks, Season Passes to 26 Live Pro Wrestling Events

 

The National Wrasslin’ League (NWL) is offering fans Fight Club memberships, featuring discounted tickets to 26 live pro wrestling events in KC and St. Louis, along with exclusive perks.

Kansas City, Mo. (PRWEB) January 25, 2017

After hosting strong turnouts for its debut pro wrestling events in Kansas City and St. Louis, the National Wrasslin’ League (NWL) is offering season passes in the form of Fight Club memberships, which include discounted tickets to 26 live local events, exclusive access to talent, and Club merchandise—all for as low as $15 a month in St. Louis, and $25 a month in Kansas City.

The KC-based startup pro wrestling company had originally planned to offer Fight Club KC and Fight Club STL memberships later in the year but opted to launch the program early after the overwhelming positive responses to the product from fans in both cities, says Major Baisden, League president.

“One of the objectives of the NWL at launch was to re-establish the close-knit wrestling communities that existed in KC and St. Louis throughout the ”60s, ’70s and early ’80s, when fans attended matches regularly promoted by locally owned companies,” Baisden says. “The Fight Club memberships in both cities will not only help make the fans feel part of our wrestling family but will also save them money in the process.

 

“Professional sports are becoming more intimate, giving fans increased access to its athletes. Pro wrestling should not be any different,” Baisden says. “We have signed some of the top talent from across the country along with the best in the Midwest to multiyear deals to give the fans a high-quality, entertaining product. We are thrilled to offer an exclusive membership program to give our die-hard fans better access to them as well as significant cost savings on tickets in the process.”

The NWL Fight Club memberships are divided into three levels to suit any fan’s budget, with prices varying slightly in each city. NWL KC fans can opt for Bronze level memberships at $25/mo. for balcony seating, join at the Silver level for $35/mo. for floor seats, or splurge on Gold Club ringside seats for $50/mo. NWL STL fans can select from the following tiers: $15 monthly GA at the Bronze level, Silver level balcony seats at $35, and $50 Gold level ringside.

Members will also enjoy special perks such as merchandise discounts and opportunities to attend special training sessions conducted at the League’s new state-of-the-art Training and Performance Center (TPC), opening in February.

Fight Club KC and Fight Club STL memberships are available now and can be purchased at shop.nwleague.com. Club members who have already signed up can begin taking advantage of their Fight Club status as soon as tonight’s NWL STL 7 p.m. show at the Casa Loma Ballroom at 3354 Iowa Ave. in St. Louis.

NWL STL Signs Homegrown Wrestling Star Dez Wellston to Multiyear Deal

 

FOX 8 WVUE – New Orleans

New NWL STL signee Mike Outlaw will honor his hometown by competing as Dez Wellston in St. Louis.

Kansas City, Mo. (PRWEB) December 14, 2016

NWL STL has signed homegrown wrestling superstar Mike Outlaw, who will honor his humble St. Louis-area upbringing by competing in the League under the name Dez Wellston.

Signing a multiyear contract with NWL STL to wrestle in front of his family is the culmination of a dream for this tenacious Midwest grappler, who grew up in Wellston, one of the most economically depressed areas in the St. Louis metropolitan area.

“Every time I’m introduced in the ring as ‘Dez Wellston,’ I’m always going to remember where I came from and how hard I had to fight to get here,” he says. “A lot of people haven’t even heard of my hometown and its struggles. But when I become a champion in NWL STL, I’m going to put Wellston on the map. This isn’t just my dream—I’m fighting for an entire community.”

Travis Bowden, the League’s VP of marketing, praised NWL STL for signing Wellston, who has built a reputation as a fierce competitor on the local indie scene over the last few years.

“Wellston is one of the most exciting performers in the Midwest, and his best days are ahead of him in NWL STL,” says Bowden, who oversaw the contract signing during a recent press conference at NWL Headquarters in downtown Kansas City. “It’s a great day for the NWL when such a promising local star like Wellston signs with the League, as we continue to build a close-knit wrestling community in St. Louis and the surrounding area. On a personal level, I couldn’t be happier for Dez and his family.”

NWL KC Signs Popular Wrestling Star from Texas

NWL KC has landed high-flying superstar Bolt Brady, who will compete as Blaine Meeks under the terms of the multiyear agreement.

The popular wrestler from Austin, Texas, will make his NWL KC debut at the promotion’s inaugural show on January 7 at the Scottish Rite Temple in midtown Kansas City.

League president Major Baisden, who oversaw the contract signing at NWL Headquarters in downtown Kansas City, says the wrestling world needs more competitors like Blaine Meeks.

“Blaine Meeks may look mild-mannered, but he’s an outstanding athlete whose aerial style has electrified crowds nationwide,” Baisden says. “When I look at Meeks, I see a decent young man who has the potential to be a breakout hero and an outstanding role model for the NWL’s younger fans.”

An avid comics fan with more than 5,000 books in his alphabetized collection, Meeks says he was drawn to NWL KC because of the League’s emphasis on colorful characters and storyline-driven entertainment.

“NWL KC is a shiny new brand offering a fresh product,” he says. “It’s the perfect place for me to reboot myself, so to speak. As I enter this exciting next chapter of my career, I feel like my favorite hero, Daredevil—the man without fear.”

NWL STL Signs Giant Grappling Great to Multiyear Contract

WFSB 3 Connecticut
t. Louis, Mo. (PRWEB) November 10, 2016

NWL STL has signed 6-foot-6-inch wrestling star Jake Dirden, who will compete in St. Louis as Jack Foster.

NWL STL recently agreed to terms with wrestling superstar Jake Dirden, who will compete in St. Louis as Jack Foster.

League president Major Baisden, who oversaw the proceedings during a recent press conference at NWL Headquarters in downtown Kansas City, hailed Foster’s signing as one of the League’s biggest yet.

“Jack Foster has competed around the world, but he enters NWL STL with a blank canvas on which to create his career masterpiece,” Baisden says. “Standing at 6 feet, 6 inches tall, with a size 18 boot, Foster’s easily one of the most intimidating competitors I’ve ever seen. Frankly, there may not be another athlete in the League who can match Foster’s intensity or his intelligence.”

Foster says he views NWL STL as an opportunity to cement his legacy as one of the best big men in the business and take wrestling back to its gritty roots in St. Louis.

“When I look around, I don’t see the same wrestling I grew up watching,” Foster explains. “I’ve fought in St. Louis before but never for St. Louis. I want this city to be proud of wrestling again. I’m bringing old-school pro wrestling back to St. Louis, and I don’t care who I have to step on to make that happen. Pretty soon, everyone in St. Louis will be talking about Jack Foster.”
