What does the surety bond do?

The Ohio Professional Wrestling Promoter Bond serves two main purposes:

  1. Protection for participants:
    • Financial compensation: If the promoter fails to pay wrestlers, referees, judges, or other event personnel as agreed upon, the participants can make a claim against the bond to recover their lost wages or fees. This helps to ensure that those involved in the event are not financially harmed by the promoter’s actions.
    • Compliance with regulations: The bond also acts as an incentive for promoters to comply with the Ohio Athletic Commission’s rules and regulations regarding safety, participant conduct, and event logistics. If the promoter violates these rules and a claim is filed against the bond, they may be liable for financial penalties.
  1. Protection for the public:
    • Safety and welfare: By encouraging compliance with safety regulations, the bond helps to ensure the well-being of wrestlers and spectators. This includes proper medical supervision, equipment standards, and adherence to match duration and intensity restrictions.
    • Financial protection: If the promoter cancels an event without proper notice or refunding ticket sales, the bond can be used to compensate ticketholders for their losses. This helps to prevent the public from being financially harmed by unforeseen circumstances.

In summary, the Ohio Professional Wrestling Promoter Bond acts as a financial safety net for both participants and the public, ensuring some level of financial protection and encouraging promoters to follow the rules and regulations set by the Ohio Athletic Commission.

If the surety company pays a claim on the bond, it will seek restitution from the bond principal (licensee).
