Well, someone's gotta start this thread... WhatCulture Pro Wrestling (WCPW)

So, when WhatCulture announced they were starting a wrestling promotion, I kind of rolled my eyes. Didn't expect much of it in terms of quality (despite them having a great YouTube channel) or star power. Then they announced that they had booked Jay Lethal vs. Noam Dar for the ROH title at the premiere show.



Now they have my attention.

Anyway, I didn't see a thread, so I figured I'd start one: a) to see what you guys think of the idea and b) in case this thing actually gains some traction.

I'm intrigued to see who else they can bring in and if the whole venture ends up being worthwhile. The first show will be streamed on YouTube, I believe, so I'll at least be tuning in to that. Hopefully, they'll announce some decent quality matches moving forward. I literally have no idea what to expect at this point.

I watch the video but the video I've watch didn't say if they're free or subscription based?

Don't like this channel but they seem to know how to get attention more than any other "indy" company.



Trying to have fun with some wrestling edits here !

Re: Well, someone's gotta start this thread... WhatCulture Pro Wrestling (WCPW)

this is reasonably local for me but i still find the whole thing kinda weird. Lethal vs Dar probably isn't something that makes me desperate to go see it either but those are good names to get for your first show. i'll probably see if i can watch that first show though out of curiosity. of course they have ligero working it tho, he works literally everywhere

I assume with them not mentioning anything about paying for a subscription that it'll be free. They probably make some good money off of Youtube and hope their subscriber numbers just keep going up once the shows start.

They're at 728,000 now. I'm interested to see where they'll be at in a month or two when the show goes up.

I hope their wrestling is nothing like their shitty lists.

I don't go on the website, but I largely find their YouTube lists to be entertaining.

At least the ones that Adam does.

Yeah, I heard about this. I gotta admit, Lethal/Dar looks like a good match, so I'll probably check this out.

Kudos to them for doing this.

I expect to lose interest if they are going to wrestle in a handkerchief sized ring as they do in the UK.
