After the senseless attack on Veronica Clyne courtesy of the FFP Women’s Champion Cindy Labre and her manager April Hunter, the President of Full Force Pro has been sidelined. Matt Kraven stepped up to take the reigns of running the day-to-day operations of FFP, however Kraven just got cleared to finally return to the squared circle, and needs to get prepared for his first wrestling match since May 4th, an HONOR World Title defense against Masanori Ishida at FFP Throwback on Christmas Day.
Recently, successful business woman and owner of UltaSports Sports Channel Mary Faith Brooks was announced as the new Commissioner of the Ohio Wrestling Federation (once Austin Briggs returned to action and could no longer fulfill the duties of being Commissioner). However, due to Veronica’s injury, things have taken a quick turn.
Mary Faith Brooks isn’t a newcomer to the sport of professional wrestling. She has owned UltaSports Sports Channel for quite some time, and always put effort in showcasing professional wrestling on her channel. But her involvement in this great sport doesn’t stop there. Matt Kraven made his start in this industry for the AWF back in the late 1990’s. The owner of AWF, was in fact Mary Faith Brooks. Kraven and Brooks have known each other for a very long time.
So it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that Matt made the decision to bring Mary in as the interim-President of Full Force Pro until Veronica Clyne can heal up and step back into the role that is most definitely her’s.
“I’ve known Mary for a very long time,” Matt Kraven said Friday night in a phone interview with ffpwrestling.com. “She is a brilliant woman. She’s a sweetheart. She cares about the wrestlers, she cares about the sport. She wants everyone to do their best. She’ll be a great interim-President for FFP.”
Kraven made the decision on Friday night, although chose to make the announcement public Saturday morning. We reached out to Mary early Saturday morning. Lucky for us, her flight had just landed in Boston, the sight of tonight’s SSN.
“I’m honored,” she humbly said. “I’ve known Matt Kraven for a long while. And I took care of him and his brother in the AWF. I guess he never forgot that. Matt is giving me great opportunities here, and I can’t wait to knock them out of the park. I can’t wait to get to work. FFP is in good hands.”
Mary normally doesn’t come to any show (FFP or OWF) without her daughter Hope, who is learning from her mother to be a successful entrepreneur. We assume that we will see Hope tonight at SSN with her mother, possibly lending a hand in her mother’s new business venture.
Some people don’t like change. Some people do. We here at ffpwrestling.com are excited to see exactly what Mary brings to the table as FFP’s interim-President. We have all the confidence in the world that she will take good care of Full Force Pro. We wish her the best of luck.
