I have written many times about Resistance Pro Wrestling. It has been a real pleasure covering R Pro over the last year or so. It has been even better getting to know the people behind R Pro.
Jacques Baron is one of the Baron brothers (aka the owners of R Pro). Jacques was the first person I connected with in attempting to start covering R Pro. I met him at the first show. I also met his wife Haley.
Right from the beginning, they treated me like a part of the R Pro extended family. Not only was the Baron family hands-on with R Pro, they are very fan-friendly and interactive.
Over the last year, I have been to most of the R Pro shows and a few after-parties and other R Pro events. The Baron family has never been too busy to stop and talk for a minute. They really make everyone feel like a valued customer. I really think if they could, they would invite everyone over for dinner.
R Pro just celebrated its one year anniversary. There was such a buzz in the air and everyone looked so happy and so proud. I was excited for everyone at R Pro, but especially the Barons family. While it is true that a company succeeds together, a successful company needs good people at the top. R Pro is successful and they have great people at the top.
It has been a pleasure getting to know Jacques and Haley. I am proud to consider them friends. I lok forward to a great second year.
Below is a picture of Jacques and Haley with Nikki Sixx. Jacques called it a "mark out" moment. I can understand that feeling. I have had many "mark out" moments at R Pro.
Thank you to Jacques, Haley and the rest of the R Pro for making me feel like part of it all. Happy holidays to you all and I wish you the best in 2012. I'll be there as the ride continues!
