The Group

Wrestlers in Business is a non-profit organization that strives to unite the thousands of wrestlers that have retired from the sport and are now in their respective careers.

It started as a networking group on LinkedIn. Since then, the group has evolved into a more prominent, member-focused organization that cares about supporting current & former wrestlers and the sport.


Mission Statement

To establish a community of wrestlers who commonly share in the interest of helping each other in business and in life, while supporting and strengthening the sport that made us who we are today.


Executive Director's Message

“Each of us who have participated in wrestling gain from the experience. That experience creates a very unique bond. Unlike other sports, there’s nowhere to hide. Our WIBN creates an environment for the purposes of supporting each other personally and professionally. We aspire to create a professional community like no other.”

~ John Licata
