Wrestling with Optimism is back with a look at a new product taking the wrestling industry by storm.
Graham Cawthon and Dan McGinn spend an hour talking with Ed Allen, the name and driving force behind WrestleCrate. The subscription-based service that sends a box of various wrestling items to homes each month has skyrocketed in popularity since it launched earlier this year.
Ed talks all about how WrestleCrate came to be, those within the industry and WWE that have reached out to him with their support, forming business partnerships, working with companies large and small, and how WrestleCrate can provide exposure to small business owners.
Ed also talks about his personal fandom of wrestling, chance encounters with wrestlers as a kid, how his fandom evolved over the years, how his son sucked him back into being a fan and even how his hometown area of Cincinnati, OH has taken to Dean Ambrose.
