Rey Horus Completes the Lineup for the Best of Mexico set!

The 8th and final card in the Best of Mexico expansion set is one of the preeminent flyers in Mexico, Rey Horus!  While originally gaining notoriety in the indies in the Tijuana area, he quickly reached new heights and found himself wrestling all over the world.  While Horus has won singles gold before, his work as a trios wrestler has become his calling card. While he has teamed with many people, he is perhaps most known for his trio with Flamita and Bandido, who won the 6-man tag team title in Ring of Honor. That being said, Horus has also feuded with Bandido and had multiple classic matchups against his tag partner. Will they face off in your fed, or put their differences aside to chase gold? The choice is yours!

Rey Horus joins Mil Muertes, Daga, Flamita, Demus, Pirata Morgan, Rey Bucanero and Laredo Kid in the Best of Mexico 8-pack.  Preorders are now available for Best of Mexico, Legends Ladies Expansion II and Future Shock: Centra Wrestling Federation 2116!  To preorder now CLICK HERE.  Preorders for all game editions will begin mailing by March 31st!

Rey Bucanero Joins His Uncle Pirata Morgan in Best of Mexico!

Another pirate is set to take over your promotions! Rey Bucanero is looking to make a splash as newest luchador debut in the Best of Mexico set.  Convinced to become a wrestler by his famous uncle, Pirata Morgan, Rey Bucanero began working smaller shows in the north of Mexico before wrestling consistently for Mexico’s oldest promotion. Bucanero took off as a well regarded tag specialist, joining multiple famous trios teams throughout his career, and winning gold with many of them. He even teamed at times with his uncle and others as Los Bucaneros.  He ended up wrestling for some major US promotions as well.  Almost any stable in history could use a tag specialist of Bucanero’s caliber. How will you book him in your promotion?

Filsinger Games Summer Convention Coming to Chicago in July 2020!

On July 11th Filsinger Games brings its annual summer convention, GalactiCon, to the Windy City of Chicago.  While GalactiCon has moved around the last few years, this is the farthest West the convention has ever traveled.  Chicago is a hotbed of wrestling and central to many Filsinger games fans.  The site of GalactiCon is the Holiday Inn Chicago O’Hare Area, which is super easy to get to by car, bus or plane and is right on the train line to downtown Chicago.

This year’s convention will take place on 1 day, starting at 10AM and will run to 10PM.  It will include all the GalactiCon traditions including the Trivia contest, Charity Auction, Q&A and of course lots of tournaments!  The best part is that everything takes place in the same venue where everyone is staying, with a bar and restaurant open late for post convention conversation.

For game fans in town Friday night, we will be heading to the iconic Logan Square Auditorium to see Freelance Wrestling, before coming back to the hotel for the midnight release of the 50th GWF game edition Origins 2136!  For folks still around on Sunday afternoon a group will also be attending the Chicago White Sox game.

For all the details on the convention including information on the hotel room block visit the OFFICIAL GALACTICON 2020 WEBPAGE.

See you this summer on the banks of Lake Michigan!

 

Pirata Morgan is Sailing into Your Indie Promotion!

 

Ahoy, Bucaneros! One of the most decorated and famous luchadors of all time, Morgan is looking to truly make a splash.  For most wrestlers, losing an eye mid match would be career ending, but for Morgan, it was an opportunity to be seized. Wearing an eye patch for the rest of his career and working a rudo (heel) gimmick based on a pirate known for his cruelty, Morgan traveled the world, honing his craft in the most famous promotions in both Mexico and Japan.

In his native country, Morgan excelled as both a tag and singles wrestler. By the early 90s, Morgan was part of one of the best known trios teams of all time, and also working as a major heavyweight championship contender in singles competition. While perhaps best known for the lengths he would go in bloody mask vs hair apuestas matches, including one shocking match that was stopped when Morgan was bleeding heavily from under his eyepatch, Morgan shouldn’t be overlooked as a truly great technical wrestler. His mastery of almost every hold practiced in lucha libre helped him succeed in the more technical world of lucha libre title matches.  Morgan will look to test himself against the best Mexico has to offer today along with many of the Legends of the 90’s he never got to face in the ring.

Wildman Demus is Looking to Brawl With All Luchadors!

Demus 3:16 is looking to brawl his way into your promotions! While only standing 5’3” tall, this wrestler known mostly for his work in the mini division, can hold his own against even the toughest of foes.  Unlike some of the other luchadors, Demus is far more comfortable brawling through the crowd than flying through the air. While he has a very technical background and can hang with almost anyone on the mat, most of his matches feature chairs, tables and anything else he might get his hands one while outside the ring.  He is also known for attempting to remove the mask of many of the luchadors he faces.  Will this practice help him or hurt him in your promotion?

Demus joins Daga, Flamita and Laredo Kid in the Best of Mexico 8-pack.  The set will debut in March along with Legends Ladies 2 and Future Shock 2116!

Daga Makes a Splash in the Best of Mexico set

A star in multiple Mexican promotions and in the US, Daga is sure to make a splash in the cruiserweight ranks. Daga started his career in the indie ranks of the lucha libre scene, but was quickly signed to one of the biggest promotions in Mexico. While Daga saw some singles success, even winning that promotion’s cruiserweight title (a title also won by Laredo Kid), he was most well known for being a member of a famous long running rudo faction. More recently, Daga brought his hard hitting lucha style to US television and has expanded his legion of fans.

Laredo Kid is Looking to Make a Splash!

While still a young luchador, Laredo Kid has made his mark not only in one of the largest promotions in Mexico, but also in multiple indie promotions throughout the United States.  He is accomplished as both a singles and tag wrestler, having won gold in his home promotion multiple times as both a cruiserweight and as part of a trio of other high flying luchadors.  While Laredo Kid’s high risk style has led to multiple injuries, it has also propelled him to featured roles in many US promotions. In one famous tag match for a well-regarded California based promotion, Laredo Kid worked opposite Flamita and Bandido in a trios match that many wrestling journalists gave a five star rating.  Despite all of his promising showings, he has never won gold in the U.S. Will he do so in your promotion?

Flamita Leads off the Best of Mexico Lineup!

Leading off the roster of the newest Indie game edition, The Best of Mexico is one of the hottest wrestlers on the planet, Flamita!  Starting his career on the Mexican independents when he was only 18, Flamita has fought to build a name for himself as one of the best and most exciting high flyers in the entire world. While originally slated to take on the mask and persona of a famous luchador from one of largest promotions in Mexico, he instead decided to make his own name and keep his current character. This decision allowed him to break out on an international level, competing for singles titles for promotions in Japan and taking part in TV tapings for a well-known US based lucha company.

Despite his singles success, Flamita is perhaps best known as one of the best tag specialists in the world. Teaming with ROH roster member Bandido as “Mexablood”, Flamita has won gold in companies the world over, including one of the topmanies in England and ROH in the US. Will Flamita team with his long time partner Bandido and rekindle his feud with the ROH’s Villain Enterprises? Or will he strike out on his own as an accomplished singles wrestler, competing for cruiserweight gold the world over?

Stayed tuned each Monday for another name in this exciting 8-pack that will be released this March.
