Episode #133: Marion Fontaine - Olde Wrestling, Detroit Event March 30th (Prize Pack Giveaway)

On Fresh is the Word, we like to deliver wisdom through great stories from the minds of bright creatives of pop culture. Through those stories, we like to dissect the journey of our guests and present actionable lessons and advice for our listeners no matter what career or avenue of artistry they pursue.



On this episode, we hit the time machine and take back to the early 20th century with our guest Marion Fontaine, pro wrestler and owner of the vintage-themed wrestling promotion out of Norwalk, Ohio, Olde Wrestling. This promotion is more than just a wrestling event, as the fans and the performers alike step back in time for a fun-filled family friendly show that also includes a ringmaster, ragtime band, newsies, carnival style exhibits, and more old timey entertainment.



Olde Wrestling is coming to Detroit on March 30th at the Detroit City Distillery – Whiskey Factory and during our chat, Marion Fontaine talked about the beginnings of the vintage-styled promotion, how they gained popularity, keeping an authenticity to the show, what to expect at an Olde Wrestling show, some of his favorite old timey gimmicks over the years, and his own career as a wrestler.



OLDE WRESTLING PRIZE PACK GIVEAWAY

In conjunction with Olde Wrestling and one of the sponsors of the show, 20x20 Apparel, we are doing an prize pack giveaway on Instagram for all sorts of great goodies from both companies.
