For psychos like me who need an "in-character" reason for why everything happens, here is the official storyline narrative for the existence of #OpenPromo. This is not something that you ever need to mention in your promos. But if for whatever reason you need to know how this whole thing exists inside the fantasy e-fedding realm, here it is (think of it like Netflix or WWE network, or even a YouTube channel):

#OpenPromo is a digital streaming service launched by Castor Strife Productions in 2015. It enables wrestlers, promoters, and fans to register and freely upload video content. The platform interface divides content into three categories for three types of uploaders: Promos (wrestlers), Events (promoters), and Community Content (fans).

While the service is partially owned by Castor Strife and a number of investors that include the FWrestling network, #OpenPromo has been intentionally left without a President, GM, or Commissioner. Instead, it is moderated by a team led by Castor Strife, with creative advice from a revolving council of renowned industry figures. The purpose of the #OpenPromo moderators and council is to ensure that spam, extremely bigoted and illegal material stays off the service, and to devise new and fresh ways of creatively stimulating uploaders.

The service itself will finance pay-per-views on an on-demand basis. There is no timeframe for when these shows will happen, as they depend purely on fan request.

#OpenPromo Sponsored Event Staff

(Note: These are just the in-character staff I am going to use for the sponsored events, aka the events that I personally write under the official #OpenPromo banner. You don't ever have to use these staff characters and announcers for the events you and other community members run)
