Beyond Wrestling Got Screwed by a Promoter, So Help It Raise Money Via Secret Sale

Beyond Wrestling's putting on a huge show on Sunday called Life Sucks Then You Die at Fete Music in Providence, RI, a cheeky show name that has turned into a description of the tone and pallor coming over the company with recent events. Joey Ryan, Candice LeRae, and Paul London were all scheduled to appear, but the person who was splitting the costs on bringing them in mysteriously disappeared and left Denver Colorado (the man, not the place!) with a difficult decision. Would he cancel their bookings and go with other options to go up against Team Tremendous and AR Fox respectively, or would he find a way to raise the funds himself to bring them in for the fans?

Those who know Colorado know that he's one of the few stand-up dudes in professional wrestling, especially on the promotion side, so he's attempting to find a way to raise $1,500 so he can successfully afford to bring in Ryan, LeRae, and London under cost and be able to give fans the more ambitious Americanrana '15 card that he's kept under wraps but been promising anyway. That part is where you come in. Yes, you, over there, don't run away from me, I know where you live. Anyway, Colorado is not a man who demands money for nothing (or chicks for free, although if your chicks come at a price, you're a john, brother).

He is putting on a secret sale to help raise funds quickly to get these wrestlers in town. All you have to do to get in on this thing is to e-mail Colorado at for information. Once the e-mail is sent, you will be presented with your choices of purchase. These items include raw footage, DVDs, merchandise, hell, you can even try to bargain for Mama Colorado's secret recipes for things like walking tacos and pulled pork (good luck on that last one). Colorado is a reasonable man, but he still needs to raise money and quick for his bookings.

And believe me, I'm not asking you to buy a substandard product. No, Beyond Wrestling won the Bloggie Award for Promotion of the Year in 2013 because of favoritism. That promotion cranks out quality wrestling for free and for sale. I mean, Colorado is trying to bring in The World's Cutest Tag Team and Paul London. What company would do that and then present those premium wrestlers in a light lower than good? Seriously, it is a win for you, a win for Colorado, and a win for the fans attending the show on Sunday. Do it.

As a postscript, Ryan especially went above and beyond trying to help Colorado out by using some of his massive amounts of frequent flyer miles to defray LeRae's flights on this trip. Like it was described in the above linked post, that's professionalism above and beyond the call of duty. All the props in the world go to the master of sleaze over here.
