Midnight Express Comes to Legends Color

Leading off the Legend of Wrestling color expansion set is one of the most nefarious tag teams in wrestling history, the Midnight Express.  Although there were many iterations of the Midnight Express, arguably the most popular tandem was “Loverboy” Dennis Condrey and “Beautiful” Bobby Eaton.  Now this legendary tag team can join your Legends promotion in full color to take on other great tag teams like the Road Warriors.

Keep any eye out over the coming weeks for more huge names in this must have Legends expansion set, which features 12 wrestler cards.  Preorder starts on Black Friday November 24th and shipping starts December 12th along with the latest expansions from Ring of Honor and Champions of the Galaxy.

FTR Teaser #2: VACANT

Last week we met MAYHAM, the first of four promoter creations, brought to life by FTR Madness winner Broc Atkinson. This week we’re introduced to the first of four Filsinger Games staff creations – VACANT!

Vacant is rumored to be one of Cannibal’s many illegitimate children growing up and running wild in the dark jungles of Neptune. He is a savage fighter, raised among beasts, untamed and void of normal human behavior. Named for his primitive nature and wild eyed thousand yard stare, Vacant is a fearless hardcore rookie!
But the fans aren’t sure what to think of the Neptunian newcomer. Is Vacant a heroic Space Cropper? Or is his destiny to follow in the sadistic footsteps of his villainous father?
In the ring, Vacant uses SPINE CRACKER – a familiar finisher used by Renegade at the start of his career.
Check back next week for another incredible promoter creation when the second of four FTR Madness winning characters is revealed!

Milwaukee’s Best Wrestler Comes to the ROH Game!

The next wrestler in the upcoming Ring of Honor expansion pack is one of ROH’s largest competitors, The Beer City Bruiser!  The 300-pound beer swigging, stogie chomping brawler initially made his mark in Ring of Honor as part of the 2015 Top Prospect Tournament.  Since that time he has formed a partnership with fellow Wisconsin native Silas Young, and the duo is consistently one of the top tag teams in ROH.  While they haven’t won the ROH Tag Team Championships yet, they did win the 2016 Tag Wars tournament and its only a matter of time before they are back in the mix for the gold.

The Beer City Bruiser joins Jay White as part of an 8-card Ring of Honor game pack being released this holiday season along with the newest Legends of Wrestling 12-pack and the new Champions of the Galaxy FTR game.  Preorder begins on Black Friday November 24th and games will be mailed by December 12th!

FTR Teaser #1: MAYHAM

The first FTR teaser of the season is MAYHAM! Mayham is an Animan who also happens to be a cowardly Aethran sympathizer. Mayham believes that the Gladiators of Aethra are going to take over the galaxy and wants to be seen as an ally when they do. Mayham’s main goal in FTR is to be noticed by the Aethran Overmaster and be invited to join the Gladiator team. How could this plan possibly go wrong for Mayham?

Mayham is created by Broc Atkinson, and is the first of four incredible fan created game cards in FTR 2. Great work, Broc! Mayham joins four staff created characters (including one by Tom!) for a total of 8 fun new jobbers for your GWF fed. Check back next week for another teaser!

Jay White is the First Name in the New Ring of Honor Game!

Kicking off the newest Ring of Honor 8-pack is a man who is making waves in Japan, “Switchblade” Jay White.  The New Zealand born wrestler got the opportunity to train as a young boy in Japan, wrestling against some of the most talented wrestlers in the world and even picking up a surprising win against Kenny Omega.  In June 2016 he ventured away from Japan on a learning excursion to the United States and joined the Ring of Honor roster.  In ROH he was part of the Search and Destroy stable and had a number of classic singles and tag team encounters.  Although he did not win any gold during his Ring of Honor run, he was able to challenge for every ROH title.  Its only a matter of time before this young talent wins gold on a major stage, especially with his recent return to Japan.

Jay White will be part of an 8-card Ring of Honor game pack being released this holiday season along with the newest legends of Wrestling 12-pack and the new Champions of the Galaxy FTR game.  Preorder begins on Black Friday November 24th and games will be mailed by December 12th!

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.

Ace Romero Barges His Way Into CZW Game

The latest addition to the CZW game is one of the Combat Zone’s newest competitors and certainly one of its largest.  But don’t let Ace Romero’s size fool you, he is insanely agile for his size and is out to prove himself to the CZW faithful.

Acey Baby comes from Maine and wrestled all over the New England scene before making his CZW debut in July.  He surprised many by winning the 10-man Aerial Assault match in August, which earned him a CZW Wired title shot in September.  Unfortunately that title opportunity was spoiled by Greg Excellent, who took exception to Romero joining CZW as another big man.  Their first Hoss Battle ended in a no contest, but this rivalry is just getting started!

Ace Romero joins Sami Callihan, MJF and The Rep in the newest CZW expansion.  Keep an eye out the rest of October for more names in the CZW 5th edition game pack.  The game will be released in early November and will be available at the Night of Infamy show on November 11th. Preorder begins next week!
