In a new interview with Yahoo! Sports, Conrad Thompson discusses all things Starrcast including what led to the original idea and having to postpone The Roast of Ric Flair until a later date. Below are some highlights.
Conrad talks about his hopes to make Starrcast II better than the original:
“I jumped at the chance because there was a list of things I wanted to try. I wanted to improve on some things I fell short on last year, but also had these ideas for new shows where I felt like we could really improve the quality. So, we’re ready to put on one of the best wrestling conventions ever for Starrcast II.
“How do I disseminate that information in real time? I needed an app. So we went and created an app for thousands of dollars and now fans can get push notifications in real time whenever anything changes.”
Conrad promises that The Roast of Ric Flair will still happen:
“The good news is that Ric’s surgery was successful and he will be OK. The bad news is that his doctor won’t allow him to fly to Las Vegas this weekend so the Roast is postponed to a future date yet to be determined. So you haven’t heard the last of the Roast of Ric Flair, stay tuned.”
