  1. For you "Old Guys" think of a popular radio host or late night TV host as a modern day social media influencer. Think of a Dick Cavett, Johnny Carson, or David Letterman in their youth accepting the challenge to wrestle another popular TV host on live television to raise money for charity. Before you decide to hate on this idea realize that this is going to be viewed by millions of young adults and will bring a massive spotlight to wrestling. If set up right we could see this put together like a UFC event with other wrestling matches from our favorite wrestlers. This is going to be a great fundraiser for charity and could help the sport tremendously. You can tell the passion they share for the sport we all love very much.
  2. I think it is somebody with a large social media following on Youtube, instagram, Twitter, etc. I'm not really sure what the qualifications are.
  3. Logan Paul is one of the largest social media influencer today. He is putting together a wrestling match with any other influence. He is offering up to a million dollars to any charity for the event. I made a post speaking about this under Logan Paul. Check it out.
  4. He mentions he is in talk with some major supporters who are willing to donate millions of dollars to specific charities. Lets make our voices heard and become a part of this as a community.

  6. Logan Paul is one of the most popular youtube and social media influencer's on the internet. He has recently been offering a challenge to wrestle and defeat any influencer in a collegiate wrestling match. He has put up a reward of $10,000 to any influencer who can successfully defeat him in a wrestling match. On his most recent podcast (Impaulsive) with two other huge social media influencer The Dolan Twins, he found a potential match. Logan Paul wrestled in high school and was 5th in the Ohio State Championship's his senior year, Meanwhile the Dolan brother said he had 11 years experience in wrestling. This podcast will easily reach over a million views on youtube in a week. I believe this is bringing a lot of attention to the sport of wrestling and will put a ton of new eyes n the sport. Is this good or bad for the sport of wrestling? Personally, i think this is amazing for the sport and exactly what we need. Wrestling has struggled with becoming cool in popular culture. This alone will bring the sport of wrestling to the attention of younger generations at a level greater than anything else we have seen before. For this reason i believe we need to support these type of matches and as a community show our support. I commented my support in the comment section and mentioned the problem we're facing in the NCAA with wrestling being dropped from many D! programs and proposed that the money be donated to any program that can help with supporting the future of D1 wrestling. I insist you do the same. Like i said this will bring wrestling to the attention of million viewers who might not have known what wrestling was and this alone will generate enough buzz to encourage many kids to try out for wrestling. I'll link the video to the podcast, They start talking about wrestling at the end of the video around the 1:05:12 mark.

  8. A day after a wrestling event, as prolific and monumental as could be, and still no video coverage, no extensive information for the fans, and not even a single mention by Flo (the largest wrestling media outlet in North America). This is the problem with wrestling. If any event were ever to recieve mass coverage this would have been it. All wrestling events are poorly covered, outside of the NCAA finals. Jordan Oliver and Zain Retherford was a match up that everybody wanted to see and I see no footage now and, during the build-up, saw little to no promotion. Another fat L for wrestling and its fans. I hope we like taking a backseat to baseball, basketball, football, womens soccer, and even LaCrosse or Tennis.

  10. Not a bad match for his college debut. Although, i am not a fan of the post match celebration. I hope one of his coaches takes him aside and talks to him about what it means to be humble. To me he comes across as lazy and uninterested sometimes, both are bad traits for a young wrestler to adopt. Thoughts?
