"CONFRONTATION' EQUALS SUCCESS at GATE
HICKORY (NC) -- What happens when two non-competing companies go into business with each other on a spring Sunday afternoon? If we are talking America's Most Liked (AML) Wrestling and Global Force Wrestling (GFW), a sold-out convention center exhibit hall would apply. Sold out in that every chair which could be located was brought in (albeit a hot tub expo next door used some).
The building was Hickory's Metro Convention Center, a dinosaur with extra parking now that citizens have paid for a deck. No one has run well in this facility except when two marketing minds like Tracy Myers' and Jeff Jarrett's come together. WrestleCade Entertainment brought a boatload of stars to Hickory (on 5/15), which suddenly has gained media attention for loss of middle-class income. Still, promoters come here with little to a lot of success in running Catawba County. What makes AML such a success (in excess of 300 paid the last 4-5 shows consecutively) is its social media, signage, word of mouth, collectively.
