Born on Twitter, fueled on Kickstarter and built in Hollywood, the WRESTLING REVOLUTION PROJECT is a 13-episode seasonal concept built on wrestling storytelling with a complete three act narrative structure. Cutting the cord completely from the modern wrestling industry chronology, it's the launch of a new universe with new characters and new rules. WRP aims to combine modern, relevant themes with compelling in-ring storytelling to create a unique wrestling television experience.
Wrestling fans can officially join the cast of WRP by being a part of the production process on October 11, 12 and 13 in Hollywood, CA. Joining the WRP production will offer fans a unique, one of a kind experience that lifts the curtain on the processes behind both independent filmmaking and professional wrestling. Attendees are not just members of the audience but instead are fully functioning members of the WRP cast, gaining weekly on-screen credit for their participation and contribution towards the product.
Additionally, attendees will be front and center in an intimate setting to watch acclaimed performers like Prince Devitt, Colt Cabana, MVP, Kenny Omega and many more as they show their skill inside the squared circle.
CASTING WRP - DAY 5
For the next several weeks we will be revealing one new member of the WRP cast every Monday through Friday here on GeekWeek. Some faces you might recognize. Some faces you might not. And some faces might just confuse you altogether. But each weekday will bring a new face and a new set of talents to our growing ensemble.
Tyson Smith, best known to wrestling fans as Kenny Omega.
As "Kenny Omega," Winnipeg native Tyson Smith has emerged as one of the most acclaimed talents in wrestling over the last few years. With his innovative video game influenced fighting style and an outgoing in-ring personality, Smith has become a globetrotting favorite with frequent tours to Japan where he has worked with DDT and NJPW to rave reviews. A top tier in-ring performer and natural born entertainer, Smith has proven himself popular on the American scene as well, with stints working for promotions such as ROH, PWG and JAPW. With his unique exploits overseas - including recently wrestling a 9-year old girl in what would become a popular viral video - he continues to gain attention and high praise. Tyson Smith is a man who has charted his own unique path through the world of wrestling. That path has now brought him to WRP.
We are ecstatic to welcome the amazing Tyson Smith to the cast of the WRESTLING REVOLUTION PROJECT.
Please join us when we return on Monday to reveal the next member of the WRP cast.
The WRESTLING REVOLUTION PROJECT begins production this October in Los Angeles and will be distributed in both physical and digital media by Image Entertainment throughout North America.
