FlipsWrestling Adds Another, Signs Kyle Dake
POMPTON LAKES, N.J. --(Business Wire)--
FlipsWrestling started with the best, Jordan Burroughs, and now adds a
stick of "dynamite" to its hammer squad, announcing today that Kyle Dake
has signed an exclusive agreement to endorse and promote
FlipsWrestling's headphones. The 4-time NCAA wrestling champion, known
as "Kid Dynamite," joins fellow superstars Burroughs, Jordan Oliver,
Jake Herbert, Frank Molinaro, Coleman Scott, Reece Humphrey and Nick
Simmons in the "Flips Family."
"What can I say? Flips are everywhere in the wrestling community, on
ESPN (News - Alert), and all over social media, and, candidly, I want to be a part of
this great group," said Dake, presently an assistant coach at his alma
mater, Cornell University, and one of the top 74 kg freestyle wrestlers
in the world. "The product is unique and sounds awesome, the 'Train Out
Loud' concept is cool, and the company's 'I Am A Wrestler' mantra
matches my own, so the fit is a natural," continued Dake. "Plus,
FlipsWrestling's ability to customize the headphones makes them a 'no
brainer' for any wrestler. My custom KD4 wrap is sick - kind of a
standard definition of the stuff that FlipsWrestling does!"
"The opportunity came together by happenstance, actually," said
FlipsWrestling's Don Beshada. "We were involved with the 'Grapple at the
Garden' in early December and, in talking with Kyle's agent, Nick
Garone, about that event, we learned that Kyle was interested in our
product, so we got to talking. I spoke with my partners about the
opportunity, and here we are. You don't pass up an opportunity to sign
"Kyle is one of the most recognizable people in wrestling, here and
abroad," said Garone. "And, FlipsWrestling has certainly burst onto the
wrestling scene with a 'bang' this year. They really promote the
athletes that affiliate with them which will be great for Kyle. We look
forward to 'blowing up' this partnership."
Beshada concluded, "We continue to move forward toward our goal of
showing other companies that supporting wrestling can result in an
appreciable return on investment. We're fired up that Kyle is on board,
and we look forward to helping him grow his brand, as we know he will do
The KD4 custom-wrapped FlipsWrestling headphones will be available
shortly at Kyle's official site, www.kyledake.com
and at www.xcelonlinestore.com.
