NEW YORK, Aug. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- TickPick, the no-fee ticket marketplace that is transforming the industry, has partnered with legendary professional wrestler and entertainer Ric Flair on an endorsement deal. Widely considered the greatest professional wrestler of all time, Flair is a 16-time WWE World Champion and stands out as an amazing performer who enthralled millions of global audience members with his signature "Knife-Edge Chop" and patented "Wooooo!"

"Ric Flair is truly larger than life, with his charisma, love of flashy cars and attire and incredible showmanship," said Brett Goldberg, co-founder and co-CEO of TickPick. "We are incredibly thrilled to work with Ric. His presence will allow us to greatly expand our reach amongst pro wrestling fans throughout the country. This will make TickPick a go-to destination for wresting fans who want to attend a live event.

Ric will frequently guest post on TickPick's blog where he'll communicate with the company's "SmartFans," in true Nature Boy fashion. He is also appearing in a television commercial, and will make recurring appearances on TickPick's and his own social media channels.

"Honored to be working with TickPick and hoping that all my achievements and notoriety will bring the biggest Wooooo and success to our partnership!" said Flair.

Flair is the only two-time WWE Hall of Fame inductee, once as a solo performer and once as part of the famed Four Horsemen faction. His incredible career prompted the development of "Nature Boy," a documentary about his amazing life produced by the award-winning ESPN series "30 for 30." His on-screen interviews are legendary and are known for iconic quotes such as "To be the man, you gotta beat the man," and his tirade about being the "Rolex-wearing, diamond ring-wearing, kiss-stealing, limousine-riding, jet-flying son-of-a-gun!"

"Ric helps us give a knife-chop to our competitors by showcasing their higher fees that take too much out of their customers' pockets," continued Goldberg. "Just like Ric needs extra cash for buying bling and living like a rock star, we want our customers to enjoy their entertainment experiences without paying high fees. Ric's now here to let customers know that TickPick has the most "flair" of any ticket marketplace because of its exceptional service and no buyers fees. All I can say is a hearty 'Woooo!' and welcome Ric to the TickPick family."

TickPick features an industry-leading approach to ticket selling with its all-in pricing. The company offers simplified transactions without hidden fees or commissions, which compare favorably to the 25% or more in total fees charged by competitors. Visit for more information.

About TickPick:
Founded in 2011, TickPick is reshaping the secondary event ticket marketplace with its no-fees approach. The company does not charge any fees for buyers, setting it apart from competitive firms that charge steep transaction fees. It also leverages its algorithms to look at the price/value ratio for tickets, and then offers value grading for buyers so they can get the optimal experience for their money. Users can also bid on tickets in a process similar to financial markets where supply and demand creates a more efficient marketplace.

TickPick was founded by Co-CEO's Christopher O'Brien and Brett Goldberg who saw inefficiencies in the ticket marketplace and decided to build a more transparent and cost-effective solution. For more information, visit
