The Media Powerhouse of Professional Wrestling

Sunday

Room 223
Attend this Session

This session is session is one of a kind and involves an in-depth discussion between two hardcore wrestling lovers, Bobby and Ajay! Yes, we heard it all, wrestling is scripted, but the entertainment component has been drawing a mass audience for over century. In result, some of the most prominent superstars have been selling out arenas and branched off in becoming major celebrities and influencers.

Names like Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, The Rock, ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin, The Undertaker, and John Cena became crowd favourites during their journey. But since wrestling is scripted and a significant fan base has been created, what truly draws money for sports entertainment?

With the help of social media, analyzing public demand for matches can truly aid professional wrestling organizations to help them become profitable.

Bobby and Ajay have an open discussion about the ‘what ifs’, and ‘how it could have been done better’ by examining crowd demand and post reactions of major wrestling corporations.

Wrestling has become an monopoly with the WWE, but what could be a competitive threat? Find out when you attend our session!
