FITE’s COO and Co-Founder, Mike Weber, sat down with Josh Shernoff for a special episode of FITE in Focus to preview the weekend long event. Watch it now ON DEMAND at no cost on FITE.
”Each show I look at I think – that’s worth the price of the whole bundle,” said Shernoff. “Top Shows. Top Talent. Tons of Action.”
The two also covered FITE’s long history of delivering programming during Pro Wrestling’s biggest week, and Weber’s even longer history in the wrestling business.
“My first experience working with pro wrestling was when I was an intern at WrestleMania 2. My job was to sit ringside and catch Refrigerator Perry if he fell out of the ring!” said Weber. “This was a Battle Royale with Andre the Giant, Big John Studd, all the biggest names of WWF at the time, but also 5 or 6 major NFL players. That’s how I started…..I got the bug.”
And if so much great content seems overwhelming: “If you do your math you’ll see we’ve crammed over 100 hours of programming into a 72-hour period,” said Weber. “There will be times when 2 or 3 events are overlapping. We don’t expect you to stack up 3 TVs in your living room though: FITE is VOD, so what you can’t watch live you can catch up with later.”
