Information and Matches Announced for #RAWLTERNATIVE on January 19th 2015

Inspired by wrestling fans on Monday live tweeting their thoughts on Raw (seemingly hate watching it), Beyond Wrestling is hosting an event on Jan 19th 2015 entitled #RAWlternative. Here’s an initial statement put out by Drew Cordiero, owner/operator of Beyond Wrestling:

“I guess a lot of people are more fixated on the name “Boycott RAW” than the purpose of this historic presentation. Well, let me explain…
I work my “shoot job” on Monday nights so I don’t even get a chance to watch Monday Night RAW live like everybody else. However, I am privy to social media, and the feedback on WWE’s flagship program seems to indicate that now, more-so than ever, the stories are confusing, the action is tepid, and the format is stale. As someone who has dedicated much of his adult life to professional wrestling, my biggest fear is that when fans become dissatisfied with the industry leader, they will give up on the genre altogether.
The purpose of “Boycott RAW” isn’t to get fans to stop watching WWE. The purpose of “Boycott RAW” is to get the internet wrestling community to band together for one night to raise awareness for the mainstream alternatives. If you are unhappy with what you see on your TV every Monday night, please don’t stop supporting professional wrestling. Tune in to “Boycott RAW” on 1/19/15 and thrust yourself head first into the indie scene. We are teaming with a dozen of the most prominent independent wrestling promotions in North America to broadcast some of the best matches of 2014 to a worldwide audience.
The revolution WILL NOT be televised. It will be streamed online for free!”
