RINGKAMPF Debuts in the EVOLVE Game!

The last names in the EVOLVE 5 8-pack are among the most feared tag teams on the independent scene today, both in North America and in Europe!

RINGKAMPF is a group formed in Germany and headed by the Austrian bruiser WALTER.  WALTER is a multi-time singles champion in his own right and has challenged WWN Live Champion Keith Lee and Matt Riddle in thrilling contests in previous EVOLVE cards.  Former EVOLVE champion Timothy Thatcher, after dropping the title to Zack Sabre Jr., went to Germany and joined the RINGKAMPF stable.  His sadistic torturing submission moves are the perfect complement to WALTER’s punishing power moves.  Now the duo has their sights set on dominating tag divisions throughout the world and at the WWN Live Super Show in New Orleans where they intend to capture the EVOLVE tag team titles!

WALTER and Timothy Thatcher will join Matt Riddle, DJZ, Austin Theory, Dominic Garrini, Anthony Henry, and James Drake in EVOLVE 5.  The game will be released at the WWN Live Experience in New Orleans on April 8-10 and will mail out to Filsinger Games fans worldwide soon thereafter. Preorder for this set and the newest Legends expansion is available now by visiting HERE.

The Workhorsemen Will Bolster EVOLVE Tag Team Division!

The EVOLVE tag team division was shaken up in the summer of 2017, when the duo of Anthony Henry and James Drake came together and shocked the EVOLVE tag team champions Catch Point and won the title in their first match tagging together.  Henry and Drake each made their names in the southeastern US independent scene primarily in singles matches.  However, since their big EVOLVE tag team title win in their home region of North Carolina, this duo has started competing regularly both in EVOLVE and in other promotions and is continuing to improve their work as a team.

The Workhorsemen, as they dubbed themselves, went on to have a few successful tag title defenses in the summer of 2017 before losing the titles to another unlikely duo of Ethan Page and ACH.  They earned another shot at the title in December against Catch Point, who reclaimed the titles, but that match ended in a no-contest.  Will they look to challenge for the title again, or focus more on singles competition and look to achieve the success in EVOLVE that both have had in singles competition outside the promotion?  It will be up to you to decide what paths Henry and Drake take in your promotion!

Anthony Henry and James Drake will join Matt Riddle, DJZ, Austin Theory, Dominic Garrini, and 2 other wrestlers in EVOLVE 5.  The game will be released at the WWN Live Experience in New Orleans in April and will mail out to Filsinger Games fans worldwide soon thereafter. Preorder for this set begins Monday April 2nd!

Its time to get the party started…DJZ is coming to the EVOLVE game!

The EVOLVE game is ready to have the volume turned up loud with wrestling’s preeminent DJ set to join the roster, DJZ!  This Filipino born wrestler has been wrestling for a number of years under s few different names and for a number of high profile companies.  But recently he joined the EVOLVE roster and has already made a splash.  Decked out in his new space-age entrance outfit, he is sure to catch the eye of EVOLEV fans on his way to the ring.  But its his high-flying abilities in the ring that will truly make him memorable to fans.  Although his record thus far in EVOLVE has not been stellar, given his experience and charisma, DJZ is bound to start winning matches along with the accolades of fans.

DJZ will join Matt Riddle, Austin Theory, Dominic Garrini, and 4 other wrestlers in EVOLVE 5.  The game will be released at the WWN Live Experience in New Orleans in April and will mail out to Filsinger Games fans worldwide soon thereafter. Get indie promotion ready to EVOLVE!

The King of Bros Joins the EVOLVE 5 Roster!

There is no denying that the EVOLVE wrestler who has grown the most over the past 2 years has been Matt Riddle.  So it is only fitting that the King of Bros himself gets an updated playing card in the newest EVOLVE expansion set.

Riddle has continued to grow his wrestling repertoire, including adding his patented Bro-mission, and his wrestling accolades.  After joining the Catch Point stable, he won the 2016 Style Battle tournament.  He continued his winning ways, but continued to come up short in his attempts to win the EVOLVE title.  However he did win the tournament to crown the inaugural WWN Live Championship in Orlando in 2017.  He held the title for over 6 months and is sure to taste gold in an EVOLVE ring again soon enough.

Matt Riddle will join Austin Theory, Dominic Garrini, and 5 other wrestlers in EVOLVE 5.  The game will be released at the WWN Live Experience in New Orleans in April and will mail out to Filsinger Games fans worldwide soon thereafter. Get indie promotion ready to EVOLVE!

FIP Champion Austin Theory Joins the EVOLVE Roster!

The past year has been an impressive one for the strong, agile newcomer from Georgia.  Theory started within the WWN Live family making a splash in Full Impact Pro before making his EVOLVE debut in February 2017 in a winning effort over Darby Allin.  He struggled a bit in the springtime, before partnering up with the cunning Priscilla Kelly and going on an impressive winning streak, culminating at EVOLVE 97 where he beat Fred Yehi for the FIP World Heavyweight Title.  This past weekend, one year after his EVOLVE debut, he challenged EVOLVE champion Zack Sabre Jr.  Although he was unsuccessful in winning the EVOLVE title, he still reigns as FIP champion and will surely once again get a title shot at the EVOLVE champion.

Austin Theory will join Dominic Garrini and 6 other wrestlers in EVOLVE 5.  The game will be released at the WWN Live Experience in New Orleans in April and will mail out to Filsinger Games fans worldwide soon thereafter so get your EVOLVE promotion ready!

Dominic Garrini is Coming to EVOLVE Game to Collect the Bones of His Foes!

Kicking off the 5th Edition of the EVOLVE game is the newest member of the Catch Point faction, “The Bone Collector” Dominic Garrini!

Before entering the professional wrestling world, Garrini was an accomplished Brazilian Jiu Jitsu fighter, attaining a purple belt over the course of his many years of training.  He decided to enter the wrestling world and was trained by Johnny Gargano and Candice LeRae at the AIW academy.  After proving himself in AIW he began branching out to other independents.  In October he made his in-ring debut for EVOLVE and was quickly brought into the Catch Point stable, a natural fit given his grappling background.  Garrini is acting as the enforcer of the group and has been tagging often with Catch Point leader Tracy Williams.  Dom will no doubt continue to improve and be a force in EVOLVE for the foreseeable future.

Dominic Garrini will join 7 other wrestlers in EVOLVE 5.  The game will be released at the WWN Live Experience in New Orleans in April and will mail out to Filsinger Games fans worldwide soon there after so get psyched!

Lance Steel Fills Out the Chikara Aniversario Pack

The last wrestler to join the CHIKARA Aniversario pack is the 16th century knight from Camelot himself…Lance Steel! Lance is literally one of the most colorful characters from CHIKARA’s early days. He has quite the interesting history in CHIKARA, which includes forming a tag team with a younger version of himself. That is before beating him and banishing the alternate version of himself to the past.

Promoters will have fun recreating some of Lance Steel’s most famous encounters, including the No Time Limit, Falls Count Anywhere match he had against Darkness Crabtree that lasted nearly 24 hours! Of course the arch enemy of a knight is bound to be a dragon, so who can resist booking Lance Steel vs. Dragon Dragon?

Lance Steel joins Robbie Ellis, Solo Darling, Travis Huckabee, Darkness Crabtree, Private Eye, and Crummels and Defarge, in this unique 8-pack that showcases the great past and awesome future of CHIKARA. \The CHIKARA Aniversario pack will begin mailing this week, and is available to preorder right now!

Chikara Owner Robbie Ellis is a Part of Chikara Aniversario

Back in 2014 when CHIKARA was in the midst of a year long shut down at the hands of the Titor Conglomerate, the promotion was put up for sale. It was at that time that art collector and fomer CHIKARA competitor Robbie Ellis purchased the promotion and brought it back to the Chikarmy! While Ellis has handed over the day to day operations to Director of Fun, Mike Quackenbush, he remains the promotion’s owner to this day.

The story of Robbie Ellis is a unique one, as detailed in the movie Canvasman: The Robbie Ellis Story. He lived a double life, as both a renowned art dealer and a professional wrestler, which he did well into his 60’s. In CHIKARA he often teamed with the immortal Larry Sweeney. Perhaps these two can team once again in your fed!

We are proud to include Robbie Ellis, along with Solo Darling, Travis Huckabee, Darkness Crabtree, Private Eye and Crummels and Defarge, along with one more wrestler from CHIKARA’s past in this unique 8-pack that showcases the great past and awesome future of CHIKARA. The CHIKARA Aniversario pack will begin mailing everywhere on May 31st, and is available to preorder right now!

The Rumblebees Look to Sting the Competition in Chikara

The CHIKARA tag team division has always been a strong part of the promotion with classic teams like the Colony, Osirian Portal, and FIST dominating for years. Now a new crop of tag teams has emerged in CHIKARA and the future looks bright. While many of the headlines have been stolen (literally at times) by Crummels and Defarge, one new unexpected tag team may end up being the best of all and that team is the Rumblebees!

Travis Huckabee has been a long-time trainee at the CHIKARA Wrestlefactory, specializing in technical wrestling skills under the likes of Drew Gulak. In 2016 he served as a referee who often made some questionable calls but always stuck up for what he thought was right and refused to be bullied. This attitude showed at the Season 16 finale, when he stood up for Solo Darling after her upset win over the massive Max Smashmaster.

That incident sparked a friendship between Darling and Huckabee, and Travis decided to turn in his referee shirt for a pair of wrestling trunks and join the CHIKARA roster as an active wrestler. So far the duo has had its moments as a tag team, but have not ended up on the winning side of many tag matches just yet. However, they may get their chance to become CHIKARA Campeones de Parejas, since Solo Darling recently won the 3rd Infinite Gauntlet and a Golden Opportunity. That Golden Opportunity allows her to skip the process of collecting 3 points and automatically challenge any champion of her choosing. If they get the chance can they unseat the seemingly unbeatable Crummels and Defarge?

Solo Darling and Travis Huckabee join Darkness Crabtree, Private Eye and Crummels and Defarge, along with 2 more wrestler’s from CHIKARA’s past in this unique 8-pack that showcases the great past and awesome future of CHIKARA. The CHIKARA Aniversario pack will begin mailing everywhere on May 31st!
