Lapel Yeah presents BIG POP'S PIZZA (WrestleCon: NYC 2019)
During WrestleMania week this year in New York City, we went BUCK WILD! We had product tables at 15 live events in 4 days and put on a Pro-Wrestling Art Show. We had an absolute blast meeting each and every one of you, especially those of you that travelled from all over the world to be there. It was a great time and we’re already looking forward to doing it all over again in Tampa next year.
It’s amazing what we were able to accomplish in that week, but nothing was more satisfying than our booth at WrestleCon. Joined by our good friends Shad and JTG (aka Cryme Tyme), we turned our booth into a full blown NYC Pizza Shop that we called BIG POP’S PIZZA! (We did such a stellar job that most people that came to booth asked where the actual pizza was. “Sorry! No pizza, we making’ PINS ova here!”)
The attention to detail was incredible from the custom logo design and stacks of branded pizza boxes to the black and white checkered floor and the miniature Big Pop’s boxes that each pin was packaged in.
In addition to our booth, we also designed and produced a LAPEL YEAH TAKEOUT GUIDE TO WRESTLEMANIA 35. We distributed more than 500 of these at our various merch tables throughout the city and it was downloaded from our website another 500 times during the week as well.
After it was all said and done, everything was an incredible success (even the ART SHOW! - who knew that'd be a hit!?) and the start of some wild things that we have planned for the rest of 2019 and beyond.
Big love and thanks to Aj Lund, Cpt. Jack Sullivan, Richie ViceGrips and his cousin, Johnny from Jersey City, Craig from Violent Miracle, Shad and JTG, Jimmy Lee, Caitlin Lipinski, Sarah Shockey, Kevin and Adam at Mind Games, Cody and Guillermo, Jaymie, Wrestling 4 Sale, Will at Deep Cover, Steve Kaye, Danny at GCW, Angel City Printing, Bang Energy, various establishments that served potent iced coffee, the greatest biscuit breakfast sandwich at Cheeky’s and to every one that took the time to stop by one our tables to chat/buy something/tell us how cool it looked - APPRECIATE THAT LOVE SO MUCH!
