Twitch has helped change the world in how people view programming and is continuing to grow and evolve that. We look forward to innovating professional wrestling in the same way by spotlighting new stars on the platform Twitch has afforded us. Everything before today was just the prologue. Now, we kick into the true story of House of Hardcore.”
