“The demand for access to Starrcast is unprecedented. Never before has an event like this sold out over three months in advance in the wrestling industry or for that fact in the fan convention business. Combined with “All In”, Chicago has become the place to be in the wrestling world during labor day weekend,” said Starrcast creator Conrad Thompson. “Because of the demand we have been able to work with FITE TV and make each of these podcasts available live throughout the four-day weekend. Now wrestling fans from around the world can join in on the party and hear first-hand from the stars from over the last five decades who have helped build pro wrestling into the wildly popular sensation that it is today.”
“Starrcast marks the first event that Global Force Entertainment has developed and produced for FITE in our recently announced partnership,” said Global Force Entertainment CEO, Jeff Jarrett. “As a participant in the event as well as a promoter of professional wrestling, I’m thrilled to be a part of bringing this event to the very best multi-screen platform in the OTT world. Also, FITE has the ability to make each of the podcasts available even when two are simultaneously taking place. Plus, as a lifelong wrestling fan I’m excited about the “live chat feature” that will be integrated into the production of the entire event!”
