Sumie Sakai Brings the Women of Honor Title to the ROH Game!

The history of women’s wrestling in Ring of Honor begins and ends with Sumie Sakai…literally!  Back in 2002 Sakai was victorious in the first-ever women’s match in ROH.  Now in 2018, she won the tournament to crown the first-ever Women of Honor champion.  “Women of Honor’s Ray of Sunshine” has built a solid reputation as one of the best women’s wrestlers in the world over her 20 year career.  It was based on that reputation that Ring of Honor made her a cornerstone of the Women of Honor division when it was relaunched in 2015.

Sumie Sakai will join Brian Milonas and six other wrestlers in the Death Before Dishonor 8-pack.  The Ring of Honor Death Before Dishonor game pack will be available this December along with the other Filsinger Games holiday releases from Legends of Wrestling and Champions of the Galaxy.  Preorder begins on Black Friday November 23rd.

The Kingpin Joins the Ring of Honor Game Roster!

The first man to be announced for the Ring of Honor Death Before Dishonor game pack is perhaps the biggest man to be part of the Ring of Honor roster, “The Kingpin” Brian Milonas.  Standing 6′ 4″ and weighing in close to 400 lbs. Milonas is an intimidating sight, but what may be more impressive is the unexpected agility and explosiveness he demonstrates in the ring.

Milonas is an over 15 year veteran of the New England independent scene.  He got his big opportunity to enter Ring of Honor as part of the 2017 Top Prospect tournament, where he made it to the semifinals.  Later in the year he had a match with the Beer City Bruiser and impressed him enough to form a tag team partnership.  Any tag team set to go up against these two are certainly in for a rough night!

The Ring of Honor Death Before Dishonor game pack will be available this December along with the other Filsinger Games holiday releases from Legends of Wrestling and Champions of the Galaxy.  Preorder begins on Black Friday November 23rd.

Q3 Promoter Prime Legends Cards…The British Are Coming!

    

Legends of Wrestling fans, get ready because the British are Coming!  That’s right, on the heels the Best of the UK set bringing some of the current day British stars to our Indie line, now Promoter Prime is bringing in 3 of the top British wrestlers from the past to the color Legends game.

First off is the man synonymous with the term Legend of British wrestling, Johnny Saint.  Saint debuted in the 1950’s and had a unique fighting style of scientific holds and defensive maneuvers that made him a perfect fit for the World of Sport television show that he was a huge star on.

Next up is a man that has more world wide TV recognition, Dave Taylor.  Taylor possessed a repertoire of both power moves and technical wrestling holds that made him a formidable opponent during his heyday of the late 90’s and early 2000’s.

Finally, the third man in this quarter’s release is one of the most requested color Legends cards, and for good reason as he is one of the most colorful men in the history of wrestling…”Exotic” Adrian Street!  The flamboyant Street was one of the most nefarious villains in both England and the southern United States.

Promoter Prime cards for Q3 will begin mailing shortly to all subscribers.  To begin your subscription and and get all the cards we have released this year check out the Promoter Prime page in the Filsinger Games Store.

Q3 Promoter Prime Indie Cards Announced

Get ready indie wrestling fans, the newest batch of Promoter Prime cards is coming your way soon!

First up is the exciting luchadora Thunder Rosa, who has been exciting fans in Mexico and the southern US in both singles and tag action. She is a great addition to any women’s promotion.

Next up is the annual card from Olde Wrestling, this time for the infamous gangster “Babyface” Bruno Moretti.  Bruno is out to take on the moonshiners and anyone else that causes trouble for his boss.  Hey fuggettaboutit!

Hailing from Japan is the Tokyo Monster Kahagas.  A veteran of over 15 years in the ring, Kahagas has terrorized the US independent scene and has won numerous NWA titles, including the NWA World Heavyweight Championship.

Stay tuned next week as we reveal the 3 Legends of Wrestling cards debuting in Q3.  Promoter Prime cards will begin mailing in September to all subscribers.

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.

George South is coming to Legends Prime in Q2!  The veteran of the south eastern territories is 1 of 3 Legends cards coming out soon.  South will be the perfect enhancement talent that you can use to get over the stars of the two recent Legends Expansion packs.  Who are the two other Legends that will come out this spring and what connections do they have to other Legends in the game?

Indiana Indie legend Billy Roc will come to the Indies prime game in Q2!  An accomplished wrestler and trainer of a number of midwest wrestlers (including the former Heidi Lovelace).  Billy Roc’s card is associated with the Dynamite Cup indie wrestling charity tournament on June 23rd in Lafayette, IN.  What two other Midwest wrestling stars will join Billy Roc this spring in Indies prime?

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. In the rare cases she does gets in the ring with a male wrestler, refer to the bold stats on her playing card. Rhea is ready to take on all comers!  But who are the other two wrestlers from the far flung future to join her?

The final two names for the Ring of Honor Excellence 8-pack are a tag team that stormed onto the scene in 2016 in a big way, “Limitless” Keith Lee and “Notorious” Shane Taylor.

But rather then pick on the smaller teams in ROH, they went after the biggest dogs in the yard in War Machine! The teams traded wins in some brutal matches. It is only a matter of time before this team finds themselves in title contention.

Will Ferrara Joins Ring of Honor Excellence Roster

Ferrara trained under Johnny Rodz and steadily climbed his way up the ladder before making his Ring of Honor debut at the 2015 Top Prospect Tournament.  He lost in the finals to Donovan Dijak, but this helped elevate his name further on the wrestling map.  Now Ferrara forms a tag team with his fellow ROH Dojo Assistant Trainer Cheeseburger, and the duo has their eyes set on the tag team titles.

Kevin Sullivan and BJ Whitmer Bring Evil to ROH Excellence

Pure evil has made its way to Ring of Honor in the form of one of the most evil minds in the history of professional wrestling, Kevin Sullivan!

It all started during a bloody Fight Without Honor match between Steve Corino and BJ Whitmer at Best in the World in the summer.  At the conclusion of the match the lights went out and when they came back on Kevin Sullivan appeared and attacked Corino with his trademark Golden Spike.  Whitmer won the match and then went about a bizarre transformation to the dark side.  The two recruited newcomer “The Punishment” Damian Martinez and now form a formidable group that many fear to face head on.

BJ Whitmer and the Kevin Sullivan manager card are available as part of the Ring of Honor Excellence 8-Pack that will begin shipping on Decemeber 16th.  You can preorder the set now and be the first to get this game edition. Or order the 2016 Holiday Package and get the ROH Excellence set along with the new Legends Color set, and Limited Edition Legends of Wrestling and Champions of the Galaxy cards.
