Revolution Pro promoter Andy Quildan said on the subject, ‘it’s no secret that the depth of female talent not just in this country but around the globe is growing & with a mantra of ‘Pro Wrestling At Its Best,’ we would not be true to our word without featuring ALL forms of world class professional wrestling.
