Challenge:
In 2016 I was approached by Chris Jericho and Mark Willis to help produce the first-ever rock & wrestling event at sea in partnership with Sixthman/Norwegian Cruise Lines.

The Event:
The inaugural Chris Jericho Rock & Wrestling Rager At Sea set sail from October 27-31, 2018 out of the Port of Miami to the Bahamas and featured a Wrestling Tournament, live music, comedy, podcasts, karaoke and meet & greet sessions with all the wrestlers and rock stars. This was a historical moment as this was the first time there was a professional wrestling cruise at sea. To mark the occasion Chris Jericho and the Young Bucks challenged Kenny Omega, Cody Rhodes and Marty Scurll in a headlining bout and stars from both Ring of Honor and Impact rosters both appeared. Wrestling legends Jerry “The King” Lawler, Jim Ross, Rey Mysterio, Mick Foley and Diamond Dallas Page also appeared.

The entire event was captured for both a FITE TV pay-per-view telecast as well as a lifestyle travel show for AXS TV. Partnerships included Loudwire, New Amsterdam Vodka and Pro-Wrestling Tees.com

The Number Foundation also illustrated and designed the official Chris Jericho Rock & Wrestling Rager At Sea poster. The limited edition 18’x24′ poster sold out of it’s entire edition of 500 and was used by fans to fill with autographs.

Testimonials:

“I’ll be honest: I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect or what the hell I was getting myself into when I got invited to Chris Jericho’s Rock ‘N’ Wrestling Rager At Sea last week. Wreslting? At sea? On a ship full of savage wrestling fans? After having the TIME OF MY LIFE, I’m thoroughly impressed how unique and cool the entire experience ended up being.”
