S17E11: Building Relationships with Hard-To-Reach People with MORE Founder Bambi Weavil

Trish Stratus. Kurt Angle. Lita. Larry Zbysko. Jeff Jarrett. The Steiner Brothers. Penta El Cero Miedo.

These are LEGENDARY names in pro wrestling with accomplishments like headlining stadiums around the world, performing on national television, appearing at Wrestlemania in front of 75,000 fans, and getting inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.

So what would make them even take a phone call from a startup independent wrestling league?

That's what Bambi Weavil, Founder of MORE Wrestling (Masters of Ring Entertainment), has figured out in her years in the business.

Similar to trying to get on the radar of a VC, or crack into an enterprise account, pro wrestling is historically a closed-door industry where oftentimes you have to be 'born in the business' to even hold someone's sweat towel.

If you think that Silicon Valley investor is hard-to-reach, try getting in touch with someone who literally has Vince McMahon on speed dial.

In this week's episode, Bambi steps to the mic to share how she's not only broken into the business and gotten on people's radars but built RELATIONSHIPS with some of the hardest-to-reach people there are.
