It seems to be the 'in' thing to do these days, but Len Davies of the British 'Real Quality Wrestling' promotion/badge/seal of approval is preparing for 'Phase 2' and is asking for $6,000 via Indiegogo to help get it up and running.
Here's a video message from the man himself:
My history with Real Quality Wrestling and British wrestling in particular has been well documented. The original RQW TV show gave European promotions the opportunity to promote themselves on SKY and international TV at no cost to themselves. My other company, Spectrum Multimedia, made production equipment, entranceways, sound systems, lights, cameras, vision mixers, edit facilities, commentary and all of the elements needed for a professional show available free of charge or at minimal cost as I was trying to lift the industry back up to the levels it had attained prior to being removed from British TV. Many wrestling organisations have an archive of quality footage obtained by the umbrella organisation of RQW being on their side.
Now that I've relocated to California, it's time to bring the second part of the plan into play. I now have Worldwide distribution of the RQW programming, and new shows with the existing footage are being created constantly, from which the original promotions involved will receive some income when they start earning in about 3 months. This campaign is for the NEW "Real Quality Wrestling" show that will be recorded here in Hollywood using footage from promotions in the UK and Europe, the US and Australia at this time. I will be hosting the show as I did with the original series and this campaign is to raise the initial funds for the studio, crew and production time for the first part of season 1, 13 episodes of 50 minutes duration each.
The rewards for helping me to reach this goal will be access, depending on the contribution, to what is quite a unique archive of wrestling matches, as well as the new shows as they are developed. There will be several hundred hours of programming in existence very soon, over 100 of which is available now.
Real Quality wrestling has always had the interest of the wrestling community at heart, and those that know me will attest to that, so by helping me achieve the target I've set you will be contributing to the wrestling industry as a whole, although even if we do fall short, I will use whatever is raised to make this happen anyway, it will just be a bit tighter. My objective is to mirror what we did with the original show, and this is just the beginning of Phase 2.
Thank you all in advance!!!
So, what is all this? An attempt to produce a show of highlights from various UK/US/etc promotions and sell the rights to TV broadcasters worldwide?
