Sharing an exciting story today from my friends at the INC and TEN Networks on Roku. Friday night, New Origins Wrestling will host their first television taping for the TEN Network. If you have a Roku box, you’ll be able to see all the action for free.
Here’s the write up today from TEN:
Growing up on the heels of her father, wrestling promoter Earl Kelly, Alicia Strange was no stranger to the turmoils and stress of managing a professional wrestling organization. Twenty years later she is still in love with the business that she was introduced to at the early age of 8.
“I was thirteen when I had to fire a wrestler for the first time. I was in charge of gathering all of the wrestler’s current licenses before the show and one wrestler refused to cooperate with any “little girl”. I was no bigger than his thigh, but in the end, he did not wrestle that night. The next show, every wrestler had their license out and waiting for me.” recalled Strange.
Today Alicia Strange is the owner and promoter of New Origins Wrestling (N.O.W) based in Irvine. “Being a second generation promoter is rare, but a second generation female promoter is almost unheard of. “ She may come in a small package, but she can match intensity and personality with the biggest guys in the arena,” said John Strange, Alicia’s husband, and N.O.W wrestler.
Alicia is now taking New Origins Wrestling to a whole new level. Last week she signed a television development deal with TEN TV to produce an N.O.W wrestling show for the channel.
“Being able to take New Origins to a worldwide television audience is a dream come true. Not only do we have the opportunity to showcase our wrestlers, but also showcase the quality is coming out of the great state of Kentucky,” said Strange. “Kentucky has always been a hub for the greatest professional wrestling in the country dating back to the early 1900’s. We are looking forward to presenting the next chapter in Kentucky wrestling’s great history”
Ten TV, part of the Moturoais Corporation, is available on the Roku platform worldwide. “Alicia has really carried the torch for her father in the wrestling business and we look forward to helping built the N.O.W brand on the world stage,” said Moturoais President of Operations Anthony Hudson.
New Origins Wrestling will tape their first televised event September 9th at the Estill County Fair barn in Irvine and begin airing on TEN TV mid-October.
