Well it’s finally here. When I started doing this last year I wasn’t sure that we would make it to 50 but here we sit at #100. I want to take a second to thank everyone that has been involved with these in any way. Without you fine folks this wouldn’t have lasted as long as it has. Today we have another fine guest.
Josh Ritchie is a guy that started out with a dream and then worked hard to make it a reality. Starting your own promotion is extra hard but through hard work and determination he has made it a reality. Let’s see how Josh feels about this Saturday’s big show.
1: What made you want to start your own wrestling promotion?
I started watching wrestling around late 2005 early 2006. I was a really creative kid back then. While everyone watching had a dream of being a pro wrestler, I for some reason had a dream of starting my own wrestling promotion. I guess it was something about the creative aspect of it that really made me wanna start a show of my own.
2: What has been your favorite EWE event so far?
The last few events have been amazing so this is really gonna be a tough choice lol. I can argue our September event “Retaliation” because I had a lot of people step up and help me out when a lot of workers no showed the event and I won the Immortal title in the main event in honor of my mom (which there’s actually a pretty funny and interesting moment about that title win I’d like to talk about in the near future). I could also say “Raising The Bar” because of the huge names that appeared for the event and the awesome matches everyone had. But I believe my favorite has to be our one year anniversary show Epic Series 2 in November. Not only because of the awesome moments and matches, but also because it showed how far the show has come in only a year.
3: Is there some new talent that you would like to see debut for EWE in 2019?
There’s an entire list of guys I’d love to have on the show. Some of those names actually might already be coming down in the near future. That’s all I’m gonna say about that.
4: What match are you most looking forward to at Saturday’s Peace Out event?
There’s several things I’m very much looking forward to this Saturday. One of those things is definitely the Chris Silvio seminar happening before the show. I attended one of his seminars before and I learned a whole lot of stuff from him so I can’t wait to see what he can do for everyone going Saturday.
5: Finally, what are your goals for EWE in 2019?
I have several goals set for us in 2019. Last year we broke 100 people in the audience and kept it above 100 since September. This year I’d like to break 200 in the audience. We’re also looking to branch out a little bit more into other areas to show our product. Don’t get me wrong we aren’t leaving The Arena anytime soon we love having our events there and they’ve been very good to us but we would also like to bring our show to other areas as well. But trust me we aren’t planning on leaving The Arena anytime soon.
Peace Out should be a really fun show. Please come on out if you have the opportunity. Also follow EWE on the social media accounts listed on the poster. I would appreciate it greatly.
Once again I would like to thank our guest for joining us today and spending some of his precious free time answering questions like this. These folks have a lot on their plates so I appreciate Josh taking time to answer these for us. Try and support him where you can, I’d greatly appreciate it.
