It’s not unusual in 2015 for a woman to be the owner of a business, unless said business is a professional wrestling promotion. Florida resident and talk radio show host, Kim Artlip, has embarked on a journey that few women in the world actually have. Kim is the proud owner of independent professional wrestling promotion, REAL Pro Wrestling.
A long-time fan of the sport, Artlip has always closely followed the major promotions, such as WWE, WCW, and ECW since she was young. In 2015, Artlip formed a friendship with Florida-based Independent Wrestler, Zack Monstar, who she joined forces with to bring REAL Pro Wrestling to life. “Professional Wrestling has been around since the beginning of televised sports. WWE’s “Monday Night RAW” is the longest-running weekly episodic television show in the history of the United States. For me, I grew up in the 70’s watching wrestling and I believe that there’s definitely room for a new promotion to come on the scene. It is our mission to put on the best possible product that listens to the fans, engages the fans, and respects the performers inside the ring”, says Artlip.
Not only is Kim Artlip the owner of REAL Pro Wrestling, she is also the host of her own wrestling-themed radio show called “The Wrestle Talk”, which airs every Thursday and Saturday on Livestream.com and iHeart.com. She also owns her own wrestling-themed clothing line, “WrestleSwag”, which aims to help local independent wrestlers build a brand for themselves through merchandise and web-based branding. All three of these companies work hand-and-hand in an effort to establish REAL Pro Wrestling as an all-around mini-wrestling empire from Social Media, Digital Broadcasting, Marketing, and Sports.
REAL Pro Wrestling is set to make its debut in the city of Port St. Lucie, Florida on January 15, 2016 with their event “Treasure Coast Takeover”! The event takes place at 7:00pm ET, at the Port St. Lucie Community Center. Tickets are on sale right now at REALProFL.com for as low as $7! Doors open at 6:30pm!
