I first heard about Resistance Pro Wrestling at Wizard World. Harry Smith was one of their guest wrestlers manning their booth, meeting and greeting fans. The excitement level was insanely high and I knew I had to be there for their debut. Their stated goal is "To bring a unique Professional Wrestling company to you, the fans" and their debut show delivered on that promise and more.
The "arena" was set up on three levels. We opted for the third level (choosing a clear view over a closer position). Our seats just happened to be by the wrestlers' dressing/waiting room, which allowed us a great view of each of them as they left for and returned from the ring.
The matches were fast-paced and interesting. There were some great power moves, high-flying moves, technical moves and even some insane moves. It added up to a surprisingly good night of wrestling.
After the night of wrestling, there was a meet and greet where the talent signed photos, posed for pictures and sold some merchandise. It was great for fan interaction and we got some great pictures and a couple of interesting interviews. The wrestlers were very friendly and seemed to be havng as much fun as the fans! We will be featuring all of this in the near future.
For now, I just wanted to praise everyone involved with Resistance Pro Wrestling. I heard no complaints and a lot of compliments from the fans. I have to say, they did bring a "unique professional wrestling company to us".
Their next event is on January 13, 2012 at Excalibur in downtown Chicago. For more information check out ResistancePro.com and the Resistance Pro Wrestling Facebook page.
