“The opportunity to work with these proven visionaries that have built extraordinarily successful businesses in their own right is humbling, but the possibilities are tantalizing for the NUWAY organization,” said Dave Dean, CEO of the National United Wrestling Association for Youth.


“In your lifetime, you hope to have an opportunity to make a difference in peoples lives,” said Ed Gutierrez, director of Rocky Mountain Nationals.  “The expected result of our three organizations coming together is to create something great for kids, coaches and parents, that will make a difference with the individual wrestler and improve the sport of wrestling overall.”


"I am humbled to be in the company of these three outstanding organizations, and proud to play a small part in their effort to combine for the good of a sport that means so much to me,” said Ed Curran, President of BizzConnection that will work with the Ultimate Alliance to bridge commercial opportunities between the wrestling organizations and their networks.  “It is obvious that it will take leaders to extend the reach and opportunity for those that sacrifice so much to be the best in a sport that requires the ultimate commitment in so many ways. Our partners will realize the benefit of aligning themselves with the best of the best."
