Chae Marsh On Life After WCW, Starting Up MamaBear Brands, Her “Ring Along” Campaign Via Kickstarter, DDP & More

Last week, Chae Marsh launched a Kickstarter campaign for her company Ring Along. Frustrated by inadequate bag organizers, Marsh noticed a gap in the market for bag organizers that were both functional and fashionable. To close this gap, Marsh created Ring Along, which allows users to customize their bag organization system. Ring Along is comprised of different-sized pouches fitted with spring-hinged rings that can be easily conjoined, attached to your bag, or transformed into a bag by adding a strap of your choosing. The pouches come in 4 sizes and materials, allowing you to mix and match to create your bag organizational system based on your preferences and personal items. All of these pouches have a gold zipper and spring-hinged ring, including its clear, black mesh, white vegan leather and black vegan leather offerings, which range in sizes from small to extra large.

But the invention of Ring Along is not the only interesting thing about Chae Marsh’s campaign. In the late 1990’s, Marsh began regularly appearing on television as “Chae An,” one of the dancers within World Championship Wrestling’s Nitro Girls. Prior to that, Marsh was attended Armstrong State University in Savannah, Georgia and was a cheerleader for the Atlanta Falcons. Marsh remained with WCW until 2000, and the company closed up shop shortly after it was acquired by WWE.

On September 3, 2021, I had the pleasure of speaking with Chae Marsh via Zoom, as embedded below. Beyond the past, present and future of Ring Along, we spoke about what she has been up to since WCW closed its doors in March 2001. More on Marsh and Ring Along can be found by clicking here, here and here, while its still-live Kickstarter campaign is fully-viewable here.
