MARKETING, WRESTLING PROS ANNOUNCE FORMATION OF TOP ROPE PROMOTIONS
"Live pro wrestling continues to draw fans of all ages to arenas, coliseums, county fairs and local high-school gyms across the country. Top Rope Pro Wrestling will bring top-of-the-line wrestling entertainment to our fans," said Chris Graham, the president and CEO of the Waynesboro, Va.,-based Top Rope Promotions, the parent company of Top Rope Pro Wrestling.
Graham has experience in the pro-wrestling industry, most recently with Awesome Wrestling Entertainment, where his web- and marketing-design company, Augusta Free Press LLC, served as web, social-media and marketing consultants.
Graham also was a member of the creative team at AWE and was a broadcaster on the company's 2011 "Night of Legends" live pay-per-view TV event.
Graham will reunite with former AWE booker and "Night of Legends" executive producer Marvin Ward in Top Rope Pro Wrestling. Ward, a 20-year veteran of the pro-wrestling industry, is a booking and creative consultant with Top Rope.
The promotions company will also book concerts and other events in 2013.
