Official Statement from Power Trip Wrestling
Here at Power Trip Wrestling, life is always loud. We aim a lot higher than many others in our position, and it has always bred jealousy and problems for PTW as a company; as those who feel threatened by our work ethic have continually tried to bring us down. We have been featured on Sky Digital twice in the last year, despite no affiliation with any channel on there, we are streamed worldwide on HybridEntTv (www.hybrident.tv); and we are currently towards the middle of a run of no less than eleven shows in the space of three months around the United Kingdom.
“Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.” – Herman Cain
The details of what we are about to expose to you in this statement, are not the first time that this has happened. In fact, just as an example, it will be the second time in recent months; as we were subject to the exact same thing occuring in April 2009, before the fundraising show we put on at Icknield Primary School, Luton. Any allegations against PTW then were proven unfounded, and we went on to raise ?300 for the school in what was a very well received night of entertainment and professional wrestling.
“The important thing to recognize is that it takes a team, and the team ought to get credit for the wins and the losses.” – Philip Caldwell
This statement which you are reading, was written on Saturday 11th July 2009, which is the same day as PTW’s outdoor show in Rushden. The day before (Friday 11th July), Rushden Council received an email, with claims and allegations that Power Trip Wrestling is not legal in any way or manner, with no insurance of any kind; nor having ever partaken in risk assessments and such like. This could not be further from the truth, as PTW’s public liability insurance is very much in date, and we have always provided risk assessments when required; and these have always been suitable, and to what has been asked of us. We have received a copy of the email that was sent to Rushden Council, just like we were in April in Luton; and are still considering our options legally if we choose to take them.
Please do not assume all of professional wrestling behaves in this manner. There are many decent promoters, promotions, and wrestlers in this business out there; who look to work with others, and are mature enough to co-exist without any problems. We are sorely tempted to expose the people behind this, for what they are worth. As you can imagine, there was something of a debate here at Power Trip Wrestling over this, and we considered everything from printing the email that was sent itself, or the email address of the person who sent it.
But we have decided against that for now, and that we shall simply have our retribution against the people who strive to bring PTW down; with the fact that we are still standing tall as a company, with the fact that both shows have gone ahead successfully and positively, and that the actions of the jealous, immature, and those who feel threatened professionally by such a driven and motivated company such as we are at Power Trip Wrestling, have failed. And they always will.
“The spirit, the will to win, and the will to excel are the things that endure. These qualities are so much more important than the events that occur.” – Vince Lombardi
But one thing is for sure, and that is that PTW will always be trying to give the fans the most fun live that we possibly can; and we truly are what our catchphrase says – “The Promotion The Competition Doesn’t Want You To See”. We thank you all for your support, and standing by us.
“Fight one more round. When your arms are so tired that you can hardly lift your hands to come on guard, fight one more round. When your nose is bleeding, and your eyes are black, and you are so tired that you wish your opponent would crack you one on the jaw and put you to sleep; fight one more round, remembering that the man who always fights one more round is never whipped.” – James Corbett
