We at SPW have been looking to appoint a General Manager for a while now, and believe we have finally found our man, his name is Ben Wolf.
Mr Wolf has spent a lot of time with us at the SPW Academy. Ben understands the SPW brand, has a strong passion for the Wrestling business and has an extensive background in business and management.
His main duties will be to oversee Live Events, manage any disputes or issues as they unfold, create matches and do his utmost to give the SPW Fans what they want.
SPW Insider: Why has SPW appointed a General Manager?
Ben Wolf: It’s my job to continue the success and maintain this amazing thing we have going here at SPW, for our wrestlers, crew, but more importantly, for our fans.
They needed someone to uphold order and enforce rules, so a position of General Manager was the logical next step. As soon as I was approached by the board, I knew this was the role for me!
SPW Insider: How did you become involved with SPW?
Ben Wolf: I’ve always been and always will be a fan of professional wrestling. I love it so much I was training to be a wrestler with SPW.
I rerouted my entire life and moved down to Invercargill with the sole purpose of pursuing wrestling when I unfortunately suffered a nasty injury preventing me from pursuing physical activity.
SPW Insider: How and why did this opportunity arise?
Ben Wolf: As SPW grew it became clear to the SPW Board that they needed to appoint someone to make day to day decisions.
I feel my experience training in the SPW Academy along with my passion for wrestling, management skills and experience, is what led the SPW board to appointing me as their General Manager.
SPW Insider: What changes can we expect to see with you at the helm of SPW?
Ben Wolf: Currently there are no repercussions for wrestlers breaking rules, being unsporting and underhanded, this is something I intend on addressing primarily.
I plan on holding talent like ‘Hooligan’ Marcus Kool accountable for their questionable tactics.
I also want to continue to bring in talent from all over the world to put on the best shows and matches we possibly can – to help raise the profile of New Zealand wrestling even more!
SPW Insider: Finally, what are some matches the SPW Fans can expect to see in the future and what are you personally looking forward to?
Ben Wolf: Personally, I’m very much looking forward to JK Moody VS 'Powerhouse' T-Rex at Halloween Haunting! This is the first chance one of our own home grown guys has at competing for the SPW New Zealand Heavyweight Championship and I want to see how good he really is! Has he learned enough, is he ready? – He’s going to have to be!
What matches can fans expect to see? You will be finding out really soon!
