There has been a shift in modern wrestling – nowadays all ring announcers have their own, vibrant, authentic personalities. This is a new wave in the industry that cannot be overlooked. And it is vital that said personality matches the vibe of the event, however, a truly versatile ring announcer is willing and able to deliver the exact ambiance and communication with the crowd that any given card, mood or venue calls for.
A memorable ring announcer is a good way to engage the crowd and bring the show to a whole new level.
In this past decade, professional wrestling has become more inclusive than ever. We have witnessed the emergence of women’s revolution, sensory inclusive shows, promotions going the extra mile to amplify underrepresented voices. However, the simple fact that while your average wrestling card is still 90% white men there’s no way we can claim having achieved equality still sparks debate, if not outrage. Which means, there is still a long way to go. Implementing her public relations education and experience giving public talks on gender issues, Xenia uses her knowledge and platforms to amplify female voices and campaign for inclusion in the business.
Live events, fests and cons, while arguably the most intense bonding experience for performers, fans and creators, can get all kinds of hectic. The best way to create memories is to make content, and comprehensive hosting can make or break a coverage segment, a panel or a hype package. A good host/anchor is your way to ensure that your viewer is immersed in the coverage in the most beneficial way.
What makes for a good wrestling commentary? Above all – the announce team’s willingness to add to the product, not take away from it. Anything can happen in wrestling, and it’s only natural that all kinds of mishaps might occur during the show. But it’s all a part of the game and can even make the viewing experience more electrifying, more credible and more human – if a proper announce team makes it that way.
A professional wrestler is, first and foremost, an original, memorable character. At times, there is just one puzzle piece missing, required to amplify said character’s impact and get their message across. And that is just the job for miss Russian Diamond. Clear and to the point like quality Russian vodka and dashing like Perestroika, once she lands on your side, no one will stand in her way.
