Back by popular demand: Marvin Ward to stay on with Top Rope
Apr 16, 2013 - by Jamie Cruickshank
An outpouring of requests to Top Rope Pro Wrestling has resulted in the return of consultant Marvin Ward. The company had announced yesterday that Ward would be leaving the company to take a new job in the entertainment industry. Top Rope has worked out an arrangement with Ward and his new employer that will allow Ward to continue to serve as a consultant to Top Rope.
“It’s nice to have the support of the fans and to know that they want me back,” said Ward, who has served as a consultant on two Top Rope shows.
Ward was also instrumental in putting together The Shawn Michaels Experience, an Aug. 31 VIP meet and greet and fan Q&A with the legendary wrestling superstar.

Top Rope is also in the planning stages for its next live wrestling event, tentatively scheduled for the fall, and a new country-music concert series.
“The phenomenal success of our April 13 show is, we hope, just the tip of the iceberg,” said Chris Graham, the president of Top Rope Promotions, the parent company of Top Rope Pro Wrestling.
“We’re very happy that we’ve been able to keep Marvin with us in a consulting role. He is an obvious asset to our business. We know why he was in high demand from others in the entertainment industry. He knows what he’s doing.”
