[Kayfabe News] is really funny -- like The Onion for wrestling fans.

Waterloo, ON (PRWEB) March 19, 2013

Rebellion Media continues the expansion of its network of sports and entertainment properties with the acquisition of KayfabeNews.com, a professional wrestling site with a comical twist.

Kayfabe News is the world’s only satirical wrestling site, offering hilarious “unreal news about an unreal sport,” making it a perfect fit for the millions of readers who follow Rebellion Media’s portfolio of wrestling and mixed martial arts sites.

Mick Foley, a former WWE champion soon to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, has described Kayfabe News as “really funny -- like The Onion for wrestling fans.”

Named for the time-honored tradition of “kayfabe” – maintaining the illusion that pro wrestling is a legitimate sporting competition – the site skewers the surreal storylines and outlandish characters of the globally popular spectacle.

“Kayfabe News is a natural addition to our broad and growing portfolio in wrestling and mixed martial arts,” said Rebellion Media CEO Ted Hastings. “We aim to give readers the freshest, most engaging digital content available on the topics they love, and Kayfabe News undoubtedly helps achieve that goal.”

Kayfabe News has amassed a strong following since its launch 13 months ago and will complement other Rebellion Media properties including WrestleNewz.com, which according to comScore figures is one of the most popular wrestling sites as measured by monthly visitors.

“It’s hugely exciting to join the Rebellion Media family,” said Colin Hunter, founder and “satirist-in-chief” of Kayfabe News. “With the expertise and digital media know-how at Rebellion’s disposal, there are amazing opportunities for continued expansion and success.”
