NYWC’s “A Matter of Pride Vol.2” to be filmed for reality show?

New York Wrestling Connection

On the indy scene, NYWC’s  upcoming show “A Matter of Pride Vol. 2”  is shaping up to be a landmark event. But an exclusive source clues us in on more.

Our source tells us that show runner, “The Boy Diva” Rick Cataldo has been in talks with reality television producers to cover the event in a pilot for an upcoming show. The show will revolve around LGBT wrestlers and Rick’s personal relations and involvement within the world of women’s wrestling in particular.

While Cataldo is male, The Boy Diva’s history within women’s wrestling runs deep. Current Fella Twins Academy members Maria Manic and Penelope Ford will credit him as a mentor and a trainer. He has worked with the likes of current NXT Superstar Kimber Lee, current SHIMMER Champion Mercedes Martinez, current SHINE Champion LuFisto, Annie Social, Becky Bayless and Marti Belle. With his antics and provocative gimmick these programs rocked the scene and were highly entertaining in the Northeast indy circuit.

The prospect of a reality show with a focus of independent women’s wrestling is sure to be exciting. This could be a great opportunity to further give exposure and push the revolution on this level in the industry.

Members of the Diva Dirt team will be in attendance to cover this show. “A Matter of Pride Vol. 2” will take place Saturday, June 17th at the NYWC Sportatorium in Deer Park, NY. (Just a reminder that Diva Dirt is sponsoring an intergender match pitting Maria Manic against The Boy Diva for “A Matter of Pride Vol.2”)

    A reality show would be awesome! Not only will it give more exposure to women’s wrestling, but also LGBTQ in wrestling.

    I remember a few months back, I came down a little hard on Rick in a comment because I had seen a few matches I didn’t really understand but after following on Twitter, following their career more closely, and doing a little more research. I have to admit, I was uninformed and now I’m very impressed and proud of the work Rick does for the LGBT.

    Good on Rick, NYWC, and all those involved. Keep up the good work ? I’d definitely watch.

    Really happy to hear that! I wish them all the success in the world cause they worked very hard for all of this and they surely deserve it. Great Job Rick and everyone involved and thanks a lot Diva Dirt for supporting them that much! :)
    I hope I will be able to watch this online somewhere since I’m located in europe and can’t attend in such Events in the USA.
