The Kiwi Buzzsaw Crashes the Best of UK Set!

The newest entrant in the Best of the UK game pack differs in one important way from everyone else announced…he isn’t originally from the UK!  “The Kiwi Buzzsaw” Travis Banks was born in New Zealand and started his wrestling career there before moving to the UK 3 years ago and seeing his career really take off.  Banks has won championships in nearly every major UK promotion and is seen as one of the top wrestlers on the UK scene.  Now his intense striking wrestling style has caught the eye of a global promotion, so it’s only a matter of time before his star rises even higher.  No matter what happens, you can always count on one thing…Banks will kick out at one!

Travis Banks joins Zack Sabre Jr., Mark Andrews and Flash Morgan Webster as part of the 8-card Best of UK Wrestling game pack.  The set will debut on July 14 at GalactiCon in Pittsburgh, and begin mailing worldwide soon soon thereafter. Get ready to add the best of the UK scene in your indie promotion! Imagine the cool promotional feuds!

Mark Andrews Flies into Best of U.K. Wrestling Set!

When it comes to high-flying wrestling in the United Kingdom, no one has done it better for as long as Mark Andrews!  The Welshman has been wrestling for over a decade and has made a major name for himself the past few years in both the US and the UK.

Andrews has won both singles and tag team gold in multiple major British promotions and continues to perform regularly.  He first appeared on the US scene in Chikara, as part of the Young Lions Cup tournament, multiple King of Trios tournaments, and winning the Rey de Voladores tournament.  He received even more global notoriety competing for multiple major US promotions, where he can be seen showing off his high-flying abilities.  Who knows what heights Mark will reach in more ways than one!

Mark Andrews joins Zack Sabre Jr. and Flash Morgan Webster as part of the 8-card Best of UK Wrestling game pack.  The set will debut on July 14 at GalactiCon in Pittsburgh, and begin mailing worldwide soon soon thereafter. Get ready to add some awesome new global talent to your game collection!

The MODfather of Professional Wrestling Debuts for Filsinger Games

Hailing from a town called Malice is one of the most unique wrestlers in the UK, who is taking the British scene and perhaps soon the worldwide scene by storm. He is Flash Morgan Webster.  Webster is truly a man from another time and place in his look and demeanor.  Don’t let the sharp dressing fool you, he is a man who can fight with the best of them.  However given the choice he would rather wow crowds with Flashy moves.  When it comes to putting on an incredible show, In Mod We Trust.

Flash Morgan Webster joins Zack Sabre Jr. as part of the 8-card Best of the Indies: United Kingdom game pack.  The set will debut on July 14 at GalactiCon in Pittsburgh, and begin mailing worldwide soon soon thereafter. Be ready for the British Invasion and the MODfather!

Filsinger Games Announces Best of the Indies Series!

Since 2011, Filsinger Games has been producing game editions for some of the biggest promotions in indie wrestling.  Some fantastic wrestlers have been included in these game editions over the years, but often there are wrestlers that are popular among a number of promotions that Filsinger Games has not worked with.  The newest Indie wrestling game line will help find a home for wrestlers that game fans are itching to see and may not be released through other partnerships.  This summer we release the first Best of the Indies game edition!

This first Best of the Indies game edition will focus on talent that has built their reputation in the United Kingdom.  While each of the 8 wrestlers have made their name in the UK, each of them have wrestled in the US and throughout the world.  The first name we are happy to announce for this set exemplifies that global presence…Zack Sabre Jr.! Sabre was first part of the Evolve 2 set, but has continued to build up his profile among some of the major pro wrestling organizations in the UK, US, and Japan.  This newly updated card will highlight his current move set and stature in the wrestling world.

Best of the Indies: United Kingdom will feature 8 cards, including mostly wrestlers making their debut in the Filsinger Games universe.  The set will debut on July 14th at GalactiCon in Pittsburgh, and begin mailing worldwide soon after that. Join us in Pittsburgh for the exclusive first release!

All Spring Promoter Prime Cards Revealed!

Filsinger Games promoters— last week we announced the first 3 cards for the Spring Promoter Prime subscription.  Now it’s time to announce the final six names for Q2, which will begin mailing in the next two weeks!

For Legends Prime, in addition to George South, we continue the June tradition of releasing cards for famous wrestling patriarchs.  First up is a color version of Bob Armstrong!  Team him with son Brad, or have him feud with Jim Cornette’s stable and relive some classic match-ups.  Next up is Joe Blanchard, the father of Tully and the grandfather of Tessa, who both recently were introduced to the Filsinger Games universe.

For Indies Prime, in addition to Billy Roc we released an unorthodox tag team from the Midwest, the current AIW tag team champions, Swoggle and PB Smooth!  Many fans remember Swoggle from his time in the major leagues, but he is a big part of Absolute Intense Wrestling these days.  He recently began an odd but successful tag team with near 7-footer PB Smooth, and won the tag team titles in their debut.  Undoubtedly their next challenge will come against the winners of the 1st annual Chandler Biggins Memorial Tag team Tournament coming this weekend as part of JT Lightning Memorial weekend.

Finally for COTG Prime, we announced that this quarter we return to the far flung future in the year 3005 and will have a re-imagined Rhea.  Joining her is a revamped Sixth Law team with incredible color updates that will put them right near the top of your Kronos tag division!  The leader of the tag team is DESTRUCTON 4300 – the latest and greatest Destructon model. Because Destructon 4300 is a cyborg (like Colossus), he is 100% legal to compete in the GWF on Kronos.  Then there is Destructon 4300’s tag team partner – ULTRA CLARION! GWF fans remember the clunky, block-headed Beta model of Clarion. That model is long gone! Ultra Clarion is a big, tall cyborg capable a moving like a cruiserweight. But he’s got a mean streak too.  Hardcore GWF fans will remember Sixth Law and the Mercenaries fighting to a time limit draw on the Kronos fight card in the Classics 3000 handbook – now fans can settle this feud of the future once and for all!

If you haven’t subscribed yet to Promoter Prime…do it now so you don’t miss out on these incredible cards!  Cards are available for tabletop gaming, online play or get both together at a discount.  Subscribe to Legends, Indie, COTG or all 3!  Go here to order.

Hardcore GWF fans remember the wildest Classics set ever – Classics 3000. 24 years later, thanks to Promoter Prime, some of these incredible characters are brought back to life in full color for use in your Kronos fed!  The first playing card is RHEA THE GIANT! Rhea is the greatest and most powerful female wrestler from the future in the GWF. In the year 3005, she has defeated all female opponents, leaving her only the male wrestlers left to challenge. Rhea arrives on Kronos with her goal to dominate the women’s division.

Cat Power and Dust are the Last 2 Names for Shimmer Volume 5!

The last two woman athletes in the SHIMMER Volume 5 game pack are two women’s wrestling veterans, Cat Power and Dust!

Cat Power made her SHIMMER debut back on SHIMMER 18 in 2008.  The feline powerhouse wrestles primarily in her home country of Canada, but has also performed on a few tours of Japan.  She has had a solid record in her SHIMMER career and even challenged Kelly Skater for the SHIMMER championship on SHIMMER 89.  Cat Power looks to continue to inflict punishment onto the SHIMMER roster at the upcoming set of SHIMMER tapings.

Dust has been wrestling since 2007, but didn’t make her SHIMMER debut until SHIMMER 86 in 2016.  Despite being a successful singles wrestler for most of her career, she is now well known for being half of the Paradise Lost tag team with Courtney Rush.  Together this demonic duo has terrorized the women’s tag team scene for most of 2017.  The duo challenged for the SHIMMER tag team titles in a 4-way match on SHIMMER 95 and look to get back into contention during the upcoming SHIMMER tapings.

Cat Power and Dust join Tessa Blanchard, Shotzi Blackheart, Britt Baker, Chelsea Green, Hudson Envy and Samantha Heights in SHIMMER Volume 5!  The game begins mailing on November 14th and will be available at the SHIMMER tapings on November 11th-12th.  You can pre order Shimmer Volume 5 right now by going HERE and CZW Set 5 by going HERE.

CZW Champion Shane Strickland Caps Off CZW Set 5!

2017 has been the year of Shane Strickland.  This year in CZW he made it to the Best of the Best finals, and picked up wins over CZW legends Sami Callihan and Masada.  King Swerve has won championships in multiple promotions in 2017, but perhaps none bigger than winning the CZW championship in July.  He outlasted Davey Richards, Joe Gacy and Lio Rush in an epic 4-way to win the championship.  Shane looks to continue his winning ways at Night of Infamy in a CZW Rules match against former champion Joe Gacy.  But this champion is known for his high-flying talent, the charisma he oozes and his ability to adapt to any kind of match, so the odds always seem to be in his favor.

Shane Strickland joins Sami Callihan, MJF, Ace Romero, CCK and the Rep in the 5th CZW expansion.  The game begins mailing on November 14th and will be available at CZW Night of Infamy on November 11th.  You can pre-order CZW Set 5 right now by going HERE and the Shimmer Volume 5 game by going HERE.

Tessa Blanchard Joins the Shimmer Game Roster!

The latest woman to join the SHIMMER Volume 5 roster is one of the most requested names from game fans, and one of the hottest names in independent women’s wrestling, Tessa Blanchard!  Tessa was born from wrestling royalty as a third generation wrestler and was trained by her famous father.  But Tessa has gone beyond her family name to prove that she is one of the one of the most talented wrestlers going today.  She wants everyone to remember that “Tessa is Forever.”

Blanchard has been part of SHIMMER since 2015, when she debuted at SHIMMER 73 defeating Athena.  She went on to have a stellar singles run in 2016 and challenged Madison Eagles for the SHIMMER championship.  However, she may be most known recently in SHIMMER as one half of the dominating tag team Mount Tessa with Vanessa Kraven.  The duo won the SHIMMER tag team titles at SHIMMER 89 from Heidi Lovelace and Evie.  They have gone on to defend them numerous times against all of the best SHIMMER has to offer by any means necessary.  Will someone finally dethrone them at the upcoming SHIMMER weekend?

Tessa Blanchard joins Shotzi Blackheart, Britt Baker, Chelsea Green, Hudson Envy and Samantha Heights in SHIMMER Volume 5!  The game begins mailing on November 14th and will be available at the SHIMMER tapings on November 11th-12th.  You can pre order Shimmer Volume 5 right now by going HERE and CZW Set 5 by going HERE.

Shut up Lykos! The CCK are in the CZW Game!

The latest duo that will be part of the Combat Zone Wrestling set are the current CZW tag team champions, Chris Brookes and Kid Lykos!  The Calamari Catch Kings, or CCK for short, are the hottest tag team on the British independent circuit.  Their tandem offense is mind blowing and they have wrestled and beaten many of the top tag teams on the European continent.  In fact, the duo won the CZW tag team titles in Birmingham England from Scarlet and Graves on a non-CZW show.  They have gone on to defend the CZW tag team titles multiple times in multiple promotions throughout England.  Now that The Rep have won the top contendership to the titles, they are insisting that the CCK make their CZW debut and defend the titles in America.  Whenever this encounter happens it is bound to be exciting!

The CCK joins Sami Callihan, MJF, Ace Romero and the Rep in the 5th CZW expansion.  The game begins mailing on November 14th and will be available at CZW Night of Infamy on November 11th.  You can pre order CZW Set 5 right now by going HERE and the Shimmer Volume 5 game by going HERE.
