Cuban Markinvests over half a million in a fantasy football trophy company called TrophySmack, and one of TMZ’s former employees is reaping the rewards! Dax Holt was back with us for “TMZ Live” on Monday to talk about how he and his partner TrophySmack, Matt Walsh, managed to hook Cuban on the most recent episode of “Shark Tank”.
He tells us that the trophy market was running out in terms of creative trophies to meet the slamming demands of modern fantasy football fans… so they stepped up.

Dax and Matt decided to go on “Shark Tank” in the hopes of getting enough financial support to go beyond fantasy sports … and icy old stuff (as he was known on “TMZ on TV” ) say they caught the perfect fish.
Cuban didn’t make it easy for them – putting all the pressure on the founders of TrophySmack to make a VERY quick decision on its investment offering. From Dax’s point of view… it wasn’t too difficult to go with Mark and his $ 600,000 investment.
As to the fact, they were supported in the dissing Lori Greiner … Dax says it’s more Cuban than them.
Either way, Dax and Matt might want to create a personalized Cuban trophy right away that says welcome aboard… something like “# 1 in TrophySmack”.
