Real Pro Wrestling's 8-disc DVD set will be delayed in its release due to technical issues surrounding the data on computer hard drives. Toby Willis, CEO and also one of RPW's resident technology gurus stated that "we are still suffering a bit from our studio being destroyed just before the broadcast last year". "Having remote facilities has put us in a state of flux including the management of massive amounts of data storage. "Willis explained further that, "when you have to shift terabits of data around in temporary storage, you deal with the possibilities that the information won't be as stable as if in a permanent location."
While RPW executives are disappointed in the delay of the DVD, they assure fans it will be worth the wait. "This will be the best wrestling action ever accessible at one time, "RPW Executive Vice President Matt Case explained. "The quality of footage and most importantly, the quality of wrestling is what people will enjoy the most. It will be a great tool for entertainment, teaching, and will also be a piece of history for wrestling aficionados around the world."
Case also mentioned that more permanent RPW facilities are being surveyed as they move into Season Two, saying "right now, we have a lot of transition. Scheduling, television, pre-production and not to mention where we're going to put up shop are all being attacked simultaneously."
Optimistic, both Willis and Case are looking toward the future are excited about the foundations that so many fans and wrestlers laid during this past year. When asked about specifics, Willis mentioned that "plans are definitely in the works. The troops are committed to the next round. "Case also stated that despite the obstacles, "We are more committed now than ever. A wrestler's tenacity is unequaled. We're just trying to make sure that our work ethic doesn't imbalance our ability to think clearly. A lot of emotion has gone into this league and ups and downs and long hours are common. "Digging into his bag of inspiration, Case remarked "when you're showcasing some of the world's best athletes, you have a tendency to get inspiration pretty quickly when you need it. You just need to watch these guys compete and you can't help but think of their training."
