FIVE PROFESSIONAL WRESTLERS, STAFF JOIN NASHVILLE PRO WRESTLING FOR KICKOFF TOUR
NASHVILLE, TN (Wednesday, August 29, 2012) -- Nashville Pro Wrestling has filled five positions as it gears up for the launch of its 2013 Takeover Tour in January in Nashville.
Internationally recognized professional wrestling stars fill three roster spots announced today, and they join the company's sponsorship coordinator and event emcee as its newest additions. They'll all play vital roles as the company prepares for its inaugural event -- "Blitzkrieg" -- scheduled Saturday, Jan. 26, 2013, at the Rocketown entertainment complex in downtown Nashville.
The three wrestlers announced today combine top-notch technical wrestling with an athletic, high-energy, high-flying style that will set the standard for Nashville Pro Wrestling's four 2013 Takeover Tour events. The three wrestlers are:
-- Steven Walters of Asheville, N.C., who at age 25 already is a 10-year veteran of the ring and recently returned from a 3-month wrestling tour of Europe. Steven has been on the radar of scouts from two of the world's top wrestling companies -- World Wrestling Entertainment and TNA Impact -- and remains in high demand internationally. He's held multiple championship throughout the Eastern U.S.
-- Adam Page of Aaron's Creek, Va., recently celebrated his 21st birthday, but at 6-foot-1 and 207 pounds, already has made a national impact on Ring of Honor's internationally broadcast weekly program, as well as for top independent companies in Los Angeles and New York. Adam's genuine homespun charm and background as a tobacco farmer has made him a consistent crowd favorite.
-- Aden Chambers of Raleigh, N.C., 28, combines a technical ability and brash attitude that has led to televised appearances with WWE and Ring of Honor. Aden's wrestling career and popular YouTube series "Squared Circle Syndication" went on hiatus because of his injury in 2011, but he's embarked on a hectic touring schedule as part of his return to the ring in 2012.
Opponents for all three competitors will be announced soon. More than a dozen additional wrestlers will be announced in coming weeks for the Jan. 26 event, "Blitzkrieg".
Two additional staff positions also have been filled:
-- Matthew Ody will join the company as its sponsorship coordinator. Matthew, founder of Matthew Ody & Associates, is the former vice president of international sales at NBC International, former sales director at Chuck Norris' World Combat League, and has coordinated sales and international programming for several professional wrestling organizations. Matthew, a native of the United Kingdom, lives in Eagleville, Tenn.
-- Gai Phanalasy will join the company as its emcee for live events. Gai has several years of experience as a professional announcer and emcee for live events throughout the Nashville area. Gai, a Middle Tennessee University graduate, lives in Nashville.
Tickets will go on sale in the fall for Nashville Pro Wrestling's inaugural event -- "Blitzkrieg" -- and all ticket sales will help benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee. Additional wrestlers and staff members will be announced soon.
