All In’s Starrcast convention to be streamed on the FITE TV app
Pro wrestling fans from around the world will get a chance to view a mega-convention of past and present wrestlers
When all is said and done, ‘All In’ might change the landscape of professional wrestling forever. The independent event brought together by The Young Bucks and Cody Rhodes has been riding a wave of momentum leading up to its arrival on September 1. With 10,000+ seats already filled, fans can expect a wild event. But what about the week leading up to the event and beyond?
Form August 30 to September 2, a convention will take place featuring a who’s who of wrestling legends. The best podcasters in pro wrestling will be there, along with stars who you can take pictures with and talk to. It is expected to be an event that is both busy and fun. It was thought this would just be an event for the fans in attendance. Thanks to FITE TV, that all changed. The streaming app announced the convention will be aired live on the app.
We are proud to announce that Starrcast 2018 will be broadcast LIVE and exclusively on @FiteTV!

The events will be taking place at the Hyatt Regency Schaumburg Ball Room in Chicago. They are now expected to be viewed by more people than the ones attending the actual ‘All In’ event. In a press release, Starrcast creator Conrad Thompson spoke about the streaming deal. He also discussed what it means for an event of this magnitude taking place.
“The demand for access to Starrcast is unprecedented. Never before has an event like this sold out over three months in advance in the wrestling industry or for that fact in the fan convention business. Combined with “All In”, Chicago has become the place to be in the wrestling world during labor day weekend. Because of the demand we have been able to work with FITE TV and make each of these podcasts available live throughout the four-day weekend. Now wrestling fans from around the world can join in on the party and hear first-hand from the stars from over the last five decades who have helped build pro wrestling into the wildly popular sensation that it is today.”
With a deal like this, the hope is that FITE, or another streaming service, will include ‘All In’ as a package deal. Time will tell if that comes to fruition. ‘All In’ takes place at the Sears Centre at Hoffman Estates, Illinois. The main event features Nick Aldis defending his NWA World Title against Cody.
