Trained by Brian Kendrick, Meehan has gained fans across the Pacific Coast with his unique combination of strong in-ring skills and hilariously smarmy charisma. His talents have also taken him to ROH and he has made several national television appearances battling the likes of Big Show and John Morrison. Now the 2010 winner of the Battle of Los Angeles tournament prepares once again to defend his home turf, this time as a member of the WRESTLING REVOLUTION PROJECT.

    Well, for lack of a more PC way to say this, we have a bunch of white guys. So I suspect we'll see another member of the non-Caucasoid Club.

    Also, with the teases of women who are not wrestling women joining, as well as other producers, we just might see some of them, as there are only 20 wrestlers on the roster, and we've seen 16 of them. Only 4 moire wrestlers will be joining the cast, but we have 9 more reveals. That means 5 producers/actors that aren't the wrestlers, as well as the commentary team which hasn't been revealed yet either.

    Sure is.

    I really digged him during his ''NWA from Hollywood'' run:
    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=solBs7CuiV0"]NWA Hollywood 28.01.2011 - Joey Ryan vs. Adam Pearce - YouTube[/ame]

    Pretty great signing for WRP.

Trained for the ring by Eric Young, Arneill would debut as "Shawn Spears" in 2002 and would quickly become a top performer on the Canadian wrestling scene. He would go on to be signed to a developmental contract in 2006, which would see him move to Kentucky and eventually Florida in pursuit of his dream. He would ultimately make his full time national television debut in 2008 under the handle "Gavin Spears." Finally heading back out on his own in 2009, Arneill would travel the world with stints in Mexico, Puerto Rico's WWC and Ring of Honor among others. Now making his home in Los Angeles, Ronnie Arneill will prove to be a major player as a member of the WRESTLING REVOLUTION PROJECT.

    Monty would be terrific. I think he is someone who could be perfect a project like this. Not that I have any idea how this is going to turn out.

    MARTY WRIGHT TOO. Just not wrestling.

    Spears was Cornette's personal project in OVW too. The biggest storyline they ever ran was centered around him.

    I mentioned Marty Wright earlier, I'd love if they had him on in a non-wrestling role of some sort. After reading Spears was in I couldn't help but think of a buddy of his that might be an interesting addition: Sinn Bodhi aka Kizarny. He didn't really fit in as a PG face in WWE but this might be the type of thing where he'd work well.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see an actual celebrity instead of a wrestler as one of the commentators. They are the ones with real scripts, and I bet you we can see some established actors from Hollywood joining up, as Katz has been hinting at that kind of thing for awhile.

    It is all coming out together. Watch it on justin.tv, buy it through iTunes, Netflix it, or order the DVD. It'll all happen at the same time in early 2012.

    And it got funded through Kickstarter, where he put up the goal for $100,000, and reached it. So that's what he's building the entire thing on. And if it is a success, we can expect another season.

    Gotta say, that's pretty sweet, especially the Kickstarter business.

    Still think a youtube approach, even after everything is done, would be plenty beneficial.

    Of course, everything will just wind up there anyway. If I'm them, I'm allowing it or doing it myself.

    It is just past noon, that means new WRP Casting for the day!

    Quote Originally Posted by GeekWeek.com

    A native of Queens, New York, Patrick Buckridge would parlay his athletic background in martial arts and lacrosse into a career inside the squared circle. Training initially with the Critical Mass Pro Wrestling school, Buckridge - as "Pat Buck" - would soon head to Florida to learn under the legendary Dory Funk Jr. His journeys would soon take him to Louisville, where he set out on his own to make it as a non-contracted talent in the OVW developmental territory. Learning under the tutelage of Rip Rogers and Al Snow, he would work opposite talents such as Cody Rhodes, Colt Cabana, Mark Henry and Shawn Spears, ultimately becoming one of only two non-contracted performers allowed on OVW television during the booking run of the great Paul Heyman. Following his stint in OVW, Buckridge would move to Florida to attend the FCW training facility under Steve Keirn and Norman Smiley. In 2010 he was named head trainer at the respected New York Wrestling Connection training school, where he is currently grooming a new generation of talent. Still, for Patrick Buckridge, there remains unfinished business -- a feeling of things left undone. That feeling finally comes to an end this October when Patrick Buckridge gets his long-overdue shot at the spotlight as a member of the WRP cast.

    I linked her IMDB page in the quote so you can check it out. She has a pretty solid pedigree (if small), is good looking, and is obviously game to be a valet/hottie on a wrestling show. And she can't be worse than the WWE Divas.

    Some tweets from Katz about this casting.

    KatzMoney Jeff Katz
    @AidanBrowne I wanted to approach the valet concept from a slightly different perspective. Needed someone with real acting chops.

    @AidanBrowne I also thought it was important to do something that felt different from the Divas, Knockouts, etc. with due respect to them.

    Newest casting. Only one more wrestler to join the roster, which means that 3 non-wrestlers will be debuted this week. Exciting stuff.

    The current - and four time - NWA Champion, Adam Pearce has emerged as a major player on the independent scene over the past decade. Originally from Lake Forest, Illinois, Pearce began his training in 1995 under wrestlers Sonny Rogers and Randy Ricci. Making his pro debut just weeks before graduating high school, Pearce would soon begin traveling the midwest independents before ending up at Steel Domain Training Center where he would complete further training under Ace Steel and Danny Dominion. It was at Steel Domain where Pearce would first find himself teaming with future stars CM Punk and Colt Cabana. He would continue to compete across the country until taking a sabbatical from wrestling in 2000. Relocating to Southern California, Pearce would soon return to the ring to become a force on the West Coast scene, working both in front of and behind the camera for several area promotions. He would eventually join up with ROH where, in 2008, he would become head booker until finally leaving the company in 2010. Still actively defending his NWA title across the country, Adam Pearce now brings his unique skill set to the cast of the WRESTLING REVOLUTION PROJECT.

    It has nothing to do with being a fan.

    In NWA Hollywood he sustained a terrible injury that was going to make him have to retire for good. He made a great many dead serious tweets and blog posts about it. Then he told everyone that he was going to have One Last Ride. A short series of matches leading to a title shot, and after that, win or lose, he was retiring.

    GUESS WHO IS ALL BETTER?!

    I get that blurring the line between kayfabe and reality is all the rage these days and that's fine. But it was so sad and manipulative that I lost an unbelievable amount of respect for the man.

    All right, this is the 20th wrestler. So that means the rest of the reveals are of the non-wrestler variety. But more curveballs may be thrown.

The son of a Portuguese immigrant father and a British immigrant mother, Moura made his first trip to the UK in 2007, spending three months working in England for All Star Wrestling and Premiere Promotions.

Influenced by Japan's legendary UWFI promotion as well as the famed British World of Sport, Thatcher has developed a unique style that combines mat-based British wrestling with a Japanese style focus on holds and submissions. Currently training in catch-as-catch-can wrestling at the Sacramento Grapplers Toe Hold Club, Tim Moura now brings his diverse set of in-ring skills to the cast of the WRESTLING REVOLUTION PROJECT.

    Katz said this guy is his specifically wanting to get new talent out there and into people's minds. There are a decent amount of match of his on youtube, so I'll be checking out a few in a bit.

    There is a reason he calls himself "The British Messiah". Clearly he himself wants to forget about his Portuguese blood.

    Interesting, another wrestler joins the cast, though previously we had learned it was a roster of 20. I wonder where it is going now. Here we go, newest roster member:

    Quote Originally Posted by GeekWeek.com


    Kevin Matthew McDonald, best known to wrestling fans as Kevin Matthews

    Standing 6'5" and weighing in at 245lbs, Brooklyn native Kevin Matthew McDonald dreamed of being a professional wrestler since he was four years old. His parents fully supported his ambition, signing a waiver to allow him to begin training at only 16 years old at the Johnny Rodz school in New York and buying him his first pair of wrestling boots for his 17th birthday. Following his initial training, McDonald headed to Ocala, Florida to learn under the legendary Dory Funk, Jr. In 2005 he would make his national television debut in enhancement matches, before finally being signed to a developmental contract in 2006, where he would study under "Squire" David Taylor and Greg Gagne. After spending time in the developmental system he would ultimately return to the East Coast, where he has established himself as a truly loathsome heel. Outspoken, loud and unafraid to say what's on his mind, Kevin Matthew McDonald now brings his cocky energy to the cast of the WRESTING REVOLUTION PROJECT.

    Nice pick up.

    I've always been incredible curious as to why WWE never scooped him and did anything with him when they did up despite the fact that he was certainly on their radar. Maybe he's awful in the ring and will just be a bodyguard.

    True. This is what Katz said on him:

    @KatzMoney
    Thanks. I needed somebody who could be a believable douchebag. One look at @2CockyKM and I knew he could do it. #highpraise

    @KatzMoney
    Latest WRP reveal is of the douchebag persuasion. tinyurl.com/6zrmvjw
    More on the music:

    @KatzMoney
    Pumped to report that composer Brian Tyler is writing a totally original theme for WRP. His concepts for character themes are awesome too.

    From what I can remember, Matthews was supposed to have an amazing look and be quite good on the mic, so maybe commentary or some such?

    Another interesting casting of another wrestler. Consider me intrigued on where this is all going.

After enrolling at West Virginia University, Ricker would eventually combine his passions inside the wrestling ring, finally moving to Cincinnati, OH following his 20th birthday to begin training at the Heartland Wrestling Association under Les Thatcher and Cody Hawk. He would continue to base himself out of the midwest until moving to Los Angeles in 2009 to pursue a dual career in both acting and wrestling. He'd find traction in both fields, booking national television commercials as well as the Animal Planet's FATAL ATTRACTIONS. He has also become a mainstay for the NWA Hollywood promotion, where he is currently managed by the legendary Percy Pringle AKA Paul Bearer. Continuing to develop an in-ring style combining his power, agility and charisma, Shaun Ricker now brings his unique skills to the cast of the WRESTLING REVOLUTION PROJECT.

    Oh sweet. Natural Selection were two guys in NWA Hollywood who clearly had the tools to be picked up by a major company. I THINK Brian Cage spent some time in WWE developmental, but Ricker (surprisingly) hasn't. If I remember correctly he came across as the greener of the two, but they had some good matches on those early shows with the Rocknes Monsters and his potential was evident.

    Yet another intriguing addition.

    Reveal today is the second producer:

    Quote Originally Posted by GeekWeek.com

    A native of Yonkers, New York, Thomas Laughlin has earned international fame and industry-wide respect as the hardcore legend "Tommy Dreamer." Originally trained for the ring by Johnny Rodz, Laughlin made his debut in 1989 before getting his initial break in 1991 with the now defunct East Coast independent promotion IWCCW. It was in 1992, however, where he would make the defining move of his career, joining a nascent independent promotion called Eastern Championship Wrestling. It was in ECW where he would find his greatest acclaim as the "Innovator of Violence," becoming a key component of the renamed Extreme Championship Wrestling via classic feuds with Raven and The Sandman. He would ultimately become regarded as the "heart and soul" of ECW, becoming an integral member of the organization behind the scenes under impresario Paul Heyman. In the years following the end of ECW he has continued to influence new generations of talent, with roles both in front of and behind the camera throughout the wrestling industry. Now - in 2011 - he brings his knowledge, talent and wisdom to the production team of the WRESTLING REVOLUTION PROJECT.
    I'm underwhelmed.

    Well let's be fair now. The man is very respected in wrestling circles and has definite booking and producing experience. If he stays backstage, he could actually be a great help to this or any company.

    He's also a cure for insomnia.

    And he booked the last TNA PPV I ever saw.

    Does this mean when there's an unsanctioned fight he gets to run out & break it up?

    Dreamer as a producer is fine by me. What did you negative nancys want, Pat Paterson?

    Katz will be doing a stream again to answer questions at 3 PST (in 1 hour). I unfortunately have a previous commitment this time and won't be at my computer. So if anyone else who has the time wants to, go to the linky below and ask away.

    Production has begun. And every time I find some interesting tidbits, I'll share. Like this one, from Katz on Twitter:

    Either would be fun. I didn't think it would be Devitt because Devitt won't be Prince Devitt, but some other character. But who knows, it is all twitter-trickery.

    A wrestler running in would be expected.

    Prince running in and hitting the Purple Rain on a face?

    Totally unpredictable.

    Well Prince Devitt & Shawn Spears are reported to not be at tapings (visa issues). So a run in by either Prince would be awesome

    If this isn't a more odd pairing for a show...

    @MaulerMMA No. It was actually really Prince. Like, the Minnesota Prince, that was on the lot today. I think Daft Punk as well. Bizarre.

    I recognize the guy on the left as the 1 trained by Johnny Devine. Kenny Omega on the right. Someone help me with the middle 2

    Enormous amount of spoilers from the tapings from various non-Deewun sources, all compiled together, plus a little Deewun editing. I'm going to do two separate spoiler tags, one for SUPER spoilers which will be the whole spoiler transcript, and one for things that are just hidden, not really spoilers, which I think are safe.

    I like how all the heels have names as if they were straight out of GI Joe.

    If every other aspect of the show if awful and shit, I will love Katz forever if he pulls off what he's trying with Joey Ryan.
