Today's Sports Festival Spotlight is on Virtual Attitude Wrestling or VAW. VAW owner and founder, Vince Aftermath was kind enough to provide some answers to some of our questions:
1. What inspired you to start your business or organization in Second Life?
Wrestling...I love wrestling and even though it may be acting at some points. Some of the action can get real but no on
2. Tell us about your business or organization:
Virtual Attitude Wrestling is what you may call WWF/WWE/WCW of Second Life. We are wrestling NOT mud wrestling but all out drama filled, voice action, animated wrestling at its best. We travel 24/7 each week across the Second Life Grid bringing free entertainment every Tuesday at 5pmSLT and Thursday at 3pmSLT. We also have our HQ at the Potomac Center which our second branded show "Turbulence" runs out of.
3. What are some exciting plans for the future for your business?
Virtual Attitude Wrestling is undergoing some format changes to our shows which consist of production changes and quiltie of our weekly shows. It's time to go to the next level. VAW has been around for 6 months and it’s time to change things up a bit. Virtual Attitude Wrestling has been recently picked up by Force.TV. Our goal is for us to start grabbing fans from the outside world and showing them the magic of Second Life. Our contract with Force.TV is set for 12 weeks. Nonetheless, I'm confident that our contract with be extended when the time comes.
4. As you know, our 16 day sports festival is taking place to honor the Olympics. What is your favorite Olympic sport?
5. How long have you been in Second Life?
6. What made you first join Second Life?
The magic of SL meaning all the great things you can do which makes it unlimited.
7. What are some of the strangest things you have experienced or seen in Second Life?
Snail racing and griefers, I would say those two are the most strangest things in SL. I'm sure there are more but I can't think of them at the moment.
8. If you could invite anyone from RL into SL, who would it be?
Vince McMahon, I guess because I love wrestler and he put it on the map. I would love to work with him so that Virtual Attitude Wrestling could have more master minds behind the deck of cards.
You can catch a special VAW show at the Flying Tigers' Sports Festival, today July 31, 2012 at 5pm slt!
