FlipsWrestling Adds Another, Signs Kyle Dake

FlipsWrestling started with the best, Jordan Burroughs, and now adds a stick of “dynamite” to its hammer squad, announcing today that Kyle Dake has signed an exclusive agreement to endorse and promote FlipsWrestling’s headphones. The 4-time NCAA wrestling champion, known as “Kid Dynamite,” joins fellow superstars Burroughs, Jordan Oliver, Jake Herbert, Frank Molinaro, Coleman Scott, Reece Humphrey and Nick Simmons in the “Flips Family.”

“What can I say? Flips are everywhere in the wrestling community, on ESPN, and all over social media, and, candidly, I want to be a part of this great group,” said Dake, presently an assistant coach at his alma mater, Cornell University, and one of the top 74 kg freestyle wrestlers in the world. “The product is unique and sounds awesome, the ‘Train Out Loud’ concept is cool, and the company’s ‘I Am A Wrestler’ mantra matches my own, so the fit is a natural,” continued Dake. “Plus, FlipsWrestling’s ability to customize the headphones makes them a ‘no brainer’ for any wrestler. My custom KD4 wrap is sick – kind of a standard definition of the stuff that FlipsWrestling does!”

“The opportunity came together by happenstance, actually,” said FlipsWrestling’s Don Beshada. “We were involved with the ‘Grapple at the Garden’ in early December and, in talking with Kyle’s agent, Nick Garone, about that event, we learned that Kyle was interested in our product, so we got to talking. I spoke with my partners about the opportunity, and here we are. You don’t pass up an opportunity to sign Kyle Dake.”

“Kyle is one of the most recognizable people in wrestling, here and abroad,” said Garone. “And, FlipsWrestling has certainly burst onto the wrestling scene with a ‘bang’ this year. They really promote the athletes that affiliate with them which will be great for Kyle. We look forward to ‘blowing up’ this partnership.”

Beshada concluded, “We continue to move forward toward our goal of showing other companies that supporting wrestling can result in an appreciable return on investment. We’re fired up that Kyle is on board, and we look forward to helping him grow his brand, as we know he will do for us.”

The KD4 custom-wrapped FlipsWrestling headphones will be available shortly at Kyle’s official site, www.kyledake.com and at www.xcelonlinestore.com.

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops.
