steeped in rich wrestling tradition. Due to Ethan Blake's media

Europe and Channel 7 in Australia.

WHO IS ETHAN BLAKE?
Ethan Blake is an American-born media mogul and owner of the Manhattan Center Studios. He carries a passion for professional wrestling unlike anyone else and has a dream to change the face of the business with his creation; The Wrestling Network.
The 33-year-old believes that wrestling is monopolised by World Wrestling Entertainment and wants that to change. During a recent interview with TIME Magazine, Blake stated: “[Vince] McMahon has done wonders for the industry as far as publicity and promotion goes, but that's now turned on its head to a point where he has no competition. You can promote something as much as you like but if the content becomes stale, people will lose interest. That's where I come in.”
Ethan is of the opinion that no one company could overthrow WWE as the most popular brand in wrestling today; however, grouping several companies together and showcasing talent from each of those brands to face one another for supremacy, is a refreshing concept that should appeal to most wrestling fans out there.
