Caprice Coleman Brings His Pulpit to the ROH Game

The final name in the Ring of Honor Top Prospects set is a wrestler who first appeared in the original Ring of Honor game.  Back in 2012 Caprice Coleman was part of C&C Wrestle Factory with fellow North Carolinian Cedric Alexander.  After Alexander’s departure from ROH, Coleman went solo for a while before forming a stable called the Cabinet with Rhett Titus and Kenny King, which later became the Rebellion with Shane Taylor.  However, after losing a match in June the group was forced to disband, once again forcing Caprice to go at it on his own.  Coleman has embraced his preacher roots and has a popular talk show on ROH TV called The Pulpit.  Will this next incarnation of Caprice Coleman be his most successful yet?

The Kingdom Comes to ROH Top Prospects!

Ring of Honor fans have been familiar with the group dubbed the Kingdom for a number of years.  This team was originally Adam Cole, Mike Bennett and Matt Taven.  The group seemingly disbanded when Cole joined the Bullet Club and Bennett left Ring of Honor, leaving Taven on his own.  However, when the Ring of Honor 6-man Tag Team Championship tournament was announced, Taven declared that the Kingdom would return.  Taven enlisted TK O’Ryan and Vinny Marseglia and the trio went on to win the tournament and become the inaugural ROH 6-man Tag Team champions.  Although they lost the titles, O’Ryan and Marseglia have remained a solid tag team, and with Taven behind them its only a matter of time before gold returns to the Kingdom!

All Hail the King! Kenny King Returns to Ring of Honor Game!

For years Kenny King was best known as a tag team wrestler in Ring of Honor, alongside Rhett Titus in the All Night Express.  The duo had captured the World Tag Team championships before King left ROH in 2012.  Upon his return in 2015, they reformed the All Night Express and eventually formed the Rebellion faction with Caprice Coleman.  The group had some success before ultimately losing a match at Best in the World in June 2017, and the group was forced to disband.  This thrust Kenny King into a singles role for the first time in Ring of Honor and he thrived winning the ROH Television Title at Death Before Dishonor XV in September.  He is a fighting champion and has already successfully defended it multiple times.  Will King’s singles career continue to grow and can he ultimately capture the Ring of Honor World Championship?

Kenny King joins Jay White and the Beer City Bruiser in the 8-card Ring of Honor Top Prospects 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!

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!

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.
