The small indie wrestling company NWA Smoky Mountain, have launched a new Kickstarter campaign that aims to raise $15,000 to fund significant improvements to their live show and television broadcast.
In 2004, the company’s first live show was attended by a mere 25 fans. Nine years later, the extensive roster entertains crowds in their thousands and has a dedicated following on Facebook that has swelled to over 10,000 fans.
The owner of NWA Smoky Mountain, Tony Givens, stated:

The additional funds will be used to produced a one hour television show which will be broadcast on a Friday evening. The remaining funds will be used to purchase a higher standard of recording equipment and to cover fees for hiring their venue.
