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.

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.

Shaun Ricker


A native of Hagerstown, MD, Shaun Ricker has long sought to combine his athletic skills and theatrical background. Standing 6'1" and weighing 230lbs, Ricker was a high school standout in football, baseball, basketball and cross country, the latter sport earning him several college scolarship offers. After enrolling at West Virginia University, Ricker would eventually combine his passions inside the wrestling ring, finally moving to Cincinnati, OH following his 20th birthday to begin training at the Heartland Wrestling Association under Les Thatcher and Cody Hawk. He would continue to base himself out of the midwest until moving to Los Angeles in 2009 to pursue a dual career in both acting and wrestling. He'd find traction in both fields, booking national television commercials as well as the Animal Planet's FATAL ATTRACTIONS. He has also become a mainstay for the NWA Hollywood promotion, where he is currently managed by the legendary Percy Pringle AKA Paul Bearer. Continuing to develop an in-ring style combining his power, agility and charisma, Shaun Ricker now brings his unique skills to the cast of the WRESTLING REVOLUTION PROJECT.

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.
