THE ORIGINAL GRAPPLING CRATE SERVICE
LAUNCHES THE UK AND EUROPE’S FIRST WRESTLE CRATE
Official joint statement:
The original wrestling themed box Wrestle Crate has become the first of its kind once again, this time by answering the call from thousands of wrestling fans in the UK and across Europe to have a Wrestle Crate made closer to home. Starting today, customers all across Europe can sign up to Wrestle Crate UK ahead of their November launch and enjoy lower shipping costs to the UK and all European countries than ever before. Plus, you can expect an added British and European flair down the line too.
As the world’s first and biggest wrestling themed crate service, Wrestle Crate wanted to find the best partners possible to bring this ambition to life and team up with people who had a proven track record of listening to their customers and going above and beyond to deliver quality products and world class customer service. Today, Wrestle Crate is delighted to announce that it has teamed up with the people behind Europe’s most popular indy published wrestling magazine – Calling Spots.
“I have a lot of respect for Richard Penaluna and for Calling Spots,” said Ed Allen, Founder of Wrestle Crate. “I like the way that Richard and the team do things; plus they put out a top-notch product. Like us, they’re a small business that embraces those roots and puts professional wrestling fans at the heart of every decision that they make! We are very similar in our approach in that we provide our customers with as much interaction as possible. Bringing Wrestle Crate to Europe and the UK through Richard and Calling Spots was a no-brainer. I know that Wrestle Crate in the UK will be ran with the same ethos and with the same passion from which it was created. At the end of the day, our goal here is to make Wrestle Crate more cost-effective for wrestling fans all across Europe, and I’m very excited that we can provide that.”
“I’ve worked with Wrestle Crate in a much smaller capacity for several months and have been blown away with the quality of products and the dedication that goes into each crate,” added Richard Penaluna, Editor in Chief and founder of Calling Spots magazine. “I’m delighted that Ed and I have been able to team up in the name of making Wrestle Crate more accessible to wrestling fans who live in the UK and across Europe. As a UK-based fan myself, I know that we often feel as though we are left out so I’m thrilled to be a part of a team that respects how fantastic British and European wrestling fans are. I’m also very passionate about ensuring that the stellar wrestling scene here in the UK is represented in crates down the line.”
WHAT IS WRESTLE CRATE?
Wrestle Crate is the world’s first monthly-mystery-box service containing pro wrestling goodies. They have been releasing crates for six months and, to-date, Wrestle Crates have included items such as:
- Mattel WWE Elite Figures
- Signed 8x10s from wrestling stars, from the Young Bucks to Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler
- Funko Pop Vinyls
- DVDs from Ring of Honor, WWE and many more
- T-shirts from Pro Wrestling Tees
- Exclusive items unavailable anywhere else such as exclusive issues of Calling Spots magazine and Pentagon Jr plush toys
- Collectables plus lots more
Once you subscribe, you will be sent a box of goodies to your door each and every month for the duration of your subscription – which can be cancelled any time without needing to sign up for half-a-year to get the best value.
WHAT IS CHANGING?
We are bringing the Wrestle Crate experience to the UK and Europe. Our mission is simply to make Wrestle Crate more accessible to customers who live here through lower shipping costs than ever before. The quality of the Wrestle Crates will remain as high as ever and, although there may be slight differences between the US based and UK based versions, our ambition is for the Crates to share as much content as possible without it hurting the pockets of our customers.
WHERE CAN YOU GET IT?
Our new dedicated European website is www.WrestleCrate.co.uk where you can sign up today. This will ensure that you’ll be first in line to get our first box shipped from the UK on November 18th. Be it a treat for yourself or even Christmas gift – this is a must for any pro wrestling fan.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Prices start from only £11.99 per month with shipping as low as £4. That’s a saving of up to £8.75 each and every month!
We have two tiers of Wrestle Crate, the Standard Crate at £11.99 and Ultimate Crate at £21.99. Shipping costs £4 in the UK and £8 to Europe.
Already signed up and living in Europe? We have some amazing news; you will be able to move over to the new WrestleCrate.co.uk website to save money every month. We are currently in the process of working with our vendor to ask if they can move you over in December, making it a seamless process for you. We will be in touch to confirm this once we know the most customer-friendly way to move your subscription to the new UK website and start saving you money.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR CALLING SPOTS?
Our editor being involved in Wrestle Crate will only help to grow Calling Spots. The magazine has a great relationship with, and has been able to get into to the hands of thousands of new readers thanks to, Wrestle Crate. This affiliation will not impact the magazine other than Wrestle Crate will continue to be to only place on earth to find exclusive Calling Spots items. Speaking personally, thank you so much for your support, both with Calling Spots and in this new venture. – Richard Penaluna (Editor in Chief)
