FITE TV issued the following press release to announce their partnership with Fight Forever Wrestling for a pair of upcoming events.
On the back of a successful launch in December 2018, Fight Forever Wrestling founders Jonathon and Simon Kay are delighted to announce they have joined the FITE family, and will be bringing their brand to a worldwide audience in April 2019.
With a double-taping already announced for March 29th at PRYZM Birmingham, fans in attendance can expect to see a world-class roster of talent including PAC, Fight Forever Men’s Champion Joe Hendry, David Starr, Candy Floss, El Phantasmo and many more.
The first of the two events, Dance of the Dragon will debut for FREE on FITE TV on Monday 8th April, with the second event, Fight Syndrome airing one week later on Monday 15th April.
Fight Forever Co-Founder Jonathon Kay said of the deal “We’re really excited to bring the Fight Forever brand to FITE TV, the best digital network for global combat sports. Fans all over the world will be able to enjoy our unique vision and presentation of Pro-Wrestling, and this first set of tapings will be unmissable!”
Fite TV COO Mike Weber on the partnership “We welcome Fight Forever to the FITE family, FITE is the world leader in Combat Sports television programming and in particular Pro Wrestling. This is another fine program that Jeff Jarrett and his team at Global Force have brought to FITE and we are looking forward to showcasing this programming”.
Jeff Jarrett of Global Force Entertainment also commented on the deal “Fight Forever has found the perfect home on FITE TV“, said Jeff Jarrett, CEO of Global Force Entertainment, “and their debut shows in December received rave reviews! So, now it’s time to broadcast this exciting new promotion on the trend-setting professional wrestling and combat sports platform—FITE”.
Tickets for the double-PPV taping are on sale now at Fightforeverwrestling.com/ with prices starting from just £15.
Powell’s POV: It’s always cool to have more access to different promotions. The only negative I see is that the debut of both events will stream shortly after WrestleMania weekend, which is typically a time when even the most diehard fans need a little break. It’s worth noting that Jarrett will apparently continue to run GWE despite returning to WWE as a producer and on-air talent.
