Jake Rothenberg was the Chairman & CEO of the now-defunct Rothenberg Promotions, a family-owned company founded 72 years ago by his paternal grandfather Roddick Rothenberg. Jake Rothenberg is a successful third-generation White Jewish boxing, wrestling and concert promoter based in Toronto (next to the Maple Leaf Garden) and New York (next to the Madison Square Garden) with close ties to Japanese promoters. The Rothenberg Promotions successfully promoted events in over twenty countries all across the world. For three generation his family’s motto has been: “Do not promote what you love. Promote what the people want.” He is all about the Money.
Before he officially became a full-time employee of SLAUGHTERSPORT, Inc. Jake Rothenberg was the biggest boxing, wrestling, and rock concerts promoter in the world. He was instrumental in destroying the dying sports of wrestling, boxing and MMA in North America.
First, to eliminate his competitors, he pressured Athletics Commissions to make insurance a lot more expensive for Combat Sports events and campaigned to ban MMA. Complaining to the very same Athletics Commission at any sign of treat from any other Combat Sports promoters. Thanks to his shenanigans and connections to the right people, Jake Rothenberg gained exclusive access to the Madison Square Garden and the Maple Leaf Garden and exclusivity for his wrestling and boxing presentations on pay-per-view circuit. Nonetheless, boxing and wrestling were on the decline.
Then after masterfully taking control of the entire boxing and wrestling market, he abandoned everything at the hands of PYGOD selling the Rothenberg Promotions to the SLAUGHTERSPORT, Inc. who absorbed it into his own thus abandonning all boxing, wrestling and concert promotions related activities converting Rothenberg Promotions’ New York and Toronto’s well-placed headquarters into SLAUGHTERSPORT, Inc. headquarters. Flushing down the toilet what his father and grandfather took an entire life to build in exchange of a 2.47% ownership of SLAUGHTERSPORT, Inc.
His brother, Nathaniel ”Nate” Rothenberg, age 45, Vice President of Rothenberg Promotions USA, and his cousin, Joseph ”Joe” Rothenberg, age 43, Vice President of Rothenberg Promotions Canada, both involved in the family business since their youth weren’t aware of the secret alliance between Jake Rothenberg and the SLAUGHTERSPORT, Inc. Jake Rothenberg maneuvered his brother and cousin out of the lucrative transaction. They both learned about it at the same time as the rest of the world, at the UST-3 Presentation when was introduced as the SLAUGHTERSPORT Live Events promoter. He is estranged from them ever since cutting all ties with them.
He is all about Money, more Money in his pocket. Jake Rothenberg is now the minority owner of one of the world’s largest Corporation and will be paid $20 Million this year in salary and stock options on top of that. Leaving his brother and cousin behind unemployed and without making a single penny out of the transaction.
