RESISTANCE Pro "POP" (Positive Outreach Program)

Resistance Pro Wrestling is a Chicago based independent wrestling organization. R-Pro debuted on November 25th, 2011. R-Pro is independently owned and operated by Gabriel & Jacques Baron. The goal of R-Pro’s Positive Outreach Program (P.O.P) is to motivate students to maintain a positive attitude in and out of school, to follow their dreams, be productive members of society and have a positive outlook on life! The R-Pro stars are deeply vested in the children of CPS, as many of us are former students/and or currently employed in schools across the city.


As visitors R-Pro POP will:

  1. Show a short video of who we are (if system can/will be provided
  2. Introduce ourselves (who we are, what we do, who we work for….etc.)
  3. Speak about subject(s) (bullying, drugs, positive attitude…..etc.)
  4. Share positive incentives (this will be done by help from school administrator. IE, GPA, grades, Behaviors) (Incentives could be Tickets, DVDs, and Pictures……etc.)
  5. Take pictures with students (if time allows)

The “P.O.P” will last between 45 minutes to 1 hour. Most R-Pro “P.O.P” will take place on Fridays, unless otherwise scheduled by the school. Previous R-Pro POP events/appearances include:

  • The 2013 Greg Olsen “Kicks For A Cure” Kickball Tournament
  • The Southside Occupational Academy
  • 2013 and 2014 Special Olympics “Plane Pull”
