On Saturday November 18th, 2017 RESISTANCE Pro held it’s final show after much hype and controversy, highs and lows in the six years since it’s inception. Over fifty live events spanning four states, thousands of attendees, television coverage (both national and local), media attention and more than afforded to other local wrestling promotions. There was also mudslinging, name calling, alleged scandals, internal strife, political maneuvering and more drama than you can see on television any given night of the week. Attendance fell, finances dwindled, spirits sank all around. “Good enough” became just that – even though it wasn’t. RESISTANCE Pro never became what it should have been and was irreparably destroyed.
The end was nigh.
So much damage – both direct and collateral – with the most costly being our relationship with our audience. No one person or event brought us any modicum of success. The only true culprit for our ultimate failure was failing to give the fans what they wanted or deserved. That’s our fault and the guilt weighs heavier on us than any other failure in the company’s history. Some critics (and fans) cried out for us to “die already”, but the truth was it was stillborn. A few weeks ago, the death certificate was signed, sealed and delivered making it official.
We feel with RESISTANCE Pro now officially dead and buried, we can finally put the past where it belongs – out of sight and mind. Like any failed relationship, lessons were learned, humility was gleaned, and epiphanies had – all good things. What’s done is done.
We’re moving on from the past, and so should you. A completely new and unique company is coming and will debut February 17th, 2018. A few faces and tangibles may look familiar, but they are not remnants of past failures. A small scale, mature attitude, fan-driven and ultimately controlled promotion that will change and mutate based on YOUR wants and needs. Our ears and eyes are yours. Wrestling fans deserve integrity and transparency – now more than ever. This is the beginning. This is 100% truth. This is The Resistance.
More information coming shortly… please stand by…
