CWE & United Kingdom's CAWS Announce Working Agreement
From the desk of Charity Appeal Wrestling Shows,
PRESS RELEASE (04/09/13) UNITED KINGDOM AND CANADA BASED WRESTLING PROMOTIONS ANNOUNCE EXCLUSIVE WORKING RELATIONSHIP & TALENT SHARING AGREEMENT
In an announcement that has international implications for the professional wrestling business, CAWS (Charity Appeal Wrestling Shows), who are based in England, and CWE (Canadian Wrestling’s Elite), who are based in Canada; have come together to join forces, and are very proud to announce together, the forming of an exclusive working relationship, and a worldwide talent sharing agreement.
Both sides are very excited about this agreement, and we are told to expect further announcements in the upcoming weeks and months in regards to this groundbreaking situation.
CAWS (Charity Appeal Wrestling Shows), are a group of volunteers, with many years of experience in professional wrestling. CAWS is the UK's only 100 percent non profit, charity and fundraising orientated, professional wrestling show. They are Luton, Bedfordshire, based; but available anywhere within the United Kingdom, and promote and run shows on behalf, and to raise money and awareness for charities.
CAWS are, essentially, freelance fundraisers, who take on good causes and enjoy raising money for them via professional wrestling. CAWS have their own television show, on the internet, which can be viewed at www.tvbedfordshire.com. CAWS make no profit from the charity shows themselves, and simply take their running costs back per show, and everything else is donated as profit to the charities being worked with.
In 2013, CAWS were given the official blessing of no less than WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) Hall Of Fame legend and worldwide best selling author, Mick Foley; in a video that was released on social media networks; where he expressed his approval of the regular charity work being done by CAWS.
CAWS believe that professional wrestling has an important role, as a form of both sports and entertainment, to give back to the community, and to those who are not as blessed. CAWS have been featured on BBC radio (BBC 3 Counties Radio, BBC Radio Northampton), and in various forms of media. CAWS work with numerous charities, which include The FireFighters Charity, Bliss (For babies born too small, too sick, too soon), The Teenage Cancer Trust, Action For Children, Sparks, and others.
CAWS are the exclusive UK affiliate of the UIWA (United International Wrestling Affiliates) program, which is a worldwide affilation of professional wrestling promotions in the world. The CAWS website can be found atwww.cawswrestling.com, and CAWS management can be contacted from there in regards to any media or press enquiries, or by charities who wish to get in touch.
