Sponsored Royal City Wrestling in March 2019
Community is so important to us, so we were excited in March 2019 to sponsor Royal City Wrestling, earning us our logo on event signage at Royal City Centre Mall in Uptown New West! We also got to shoot an honest-to-goodness REAL wrestling promo video with the one-and-only Mr. India and the hilarious Volcano. We has a blast being a part of #RumbleMonth!
