Rebellion Media Expands Entertainment & Sports Network With Acquisition Of WrestleNewz.com
Waterloo-based Rebellion Media is continuing their shopping spree, recently acquiring social app discovery Jingu for an undisclosed sum. Their latest acquisition is WrestleNewz.com, a popular professional wrestling news website, that boasts traffic of more than 5 million monthly visitors.
“WrestleNewz is a natural fit with our broad mixed martial arts portfolio,” said Ted Hastings, Rebellion Media’s CEO. “Together, our sports sites are a tremendous network for advertisers to reach an affluent male audience.”
Rebellion Media plans to apply its TRACE technology – its proprietary traffic, revenue and content engine – to further boost traffic, improve user engagement and increase revenue on WrestleNewz. No financial terms of the deal were disclosed.
Thanks for the tip JD.
