On the heals of announcing lucha libre star RUSH last week, we are thrilled to announce that another sensational luchador is joining the newest Ring of Honor Set, Bandido!  Bandido is a 4th generation wrestler with extensive experience in his home country of Mexico, along with other promotions around the world.  After signing his ROH deal he debuted in January and immediately went on an impressive winning streak, before eventually suffering his first loss in ROH to fellow-countryman RUSH.  With his impressive high-flying skills and the backing of the Lifeblood faction, there is no telling the heights Bandido can reach in Ring of Honor.

Bandido joins RUSH, Brody King, PCO, Coast 2 Coast and 2 other first-time ROH cards in the Ring of Honor Supercard of Honor 8-pack.  This game edition is now available for preorder right HERE.  The game begins mailing on May 28th!

Lucha Libre Star RUSH in the Newest ROH Game Pack!

Debuting in the Ring of Honor Supercard of Honor pack is one of the biggest stars in Mexican wrestling, RUSH!  After starting the influential Los Ingobernables faction and winning multiple titles in Mexico, RUSH made his debut in Ring of Honor in late 2018.  He soon after signed an exclusive contract with ROH, and remains undefeated in singles competition in the promotion so far!  He has the looks, charisma and in-ring skills to be a superstar in any country.  Is it only a matter of time before RUSH captures gold in Ring of Honor too?

Coast 2 Coast Joins the Ring of Honor Tag Ranks in the latest game pack!

On the heels of announcing Villain Enterprises, another Ring of Honor tag team will debut in the new Supercard of Honor set, Coast 2 Coast!  This exciting young tag team is comprised of “The Human Rocket” Leon St. Giovanni (LSG) and Shaheem Ali.  The team combines LSG’s spectacular aerial maneuvers which Ali’s deceptive speed and strength. This duo both graduated from the world renowned Monster Factory and debuted in ROH in 2015.  While they had some success early on, it took until the end of 2017 for their breakthrough match, a win in a do or die match against the War Machine, in which Coast 2 Coast came out on top.  After that match they went on an impressive winning streak and earned a shot at the ROH World Tag Team Titles.  While they haven’t yet achieved gold in Ring of Honor yet, given their talents its only a matter of time before they get another opportunity.

Coast 2 Coast join Brody King, PCO and 4 other first-time ROH cards in the Ring of Honor Supercard of Honor 8-pack.  This game edition will be available for preorder next Monday and will begin mailing in late May.

Villain Enterprises is Complete with the Addition of Brody King!

Last week we announced PCO was the first card in the Supercard of Honor pack, and this week we are thrilled to announce his tag team partner in Villain Enterprises, Brody King, will also be part of this star studded game pack! King started his career in Southern California in 2015, but quickly became a standout and started appearing throughout the country and winning prestigious championships.  Brody lives the hardcore punk lifestyle, and while at first glance may just seem like a brawler, after a closer look you can see the agility and pure wrestling technique he possess.  He has seen immediate success in Ring of Honor once joining Villain Enterprises, quickly winning the ROH Tag Team and 6-Man Tag team titles.  While still young in his wrestling tenure, there is no telling how far he can go under the guidance of his veteran teammates PCO and Marty Scurll.

Brody King, PCO and 6 other first-time ROH cards will comprise the roster for the Ring of Honor Supercard of Honor 8-pack.  This game edition will begin mailing in late May.

The Inhuman PCO Shocks the Ring of Honor Roster!

In the 1990’s French Canadian wrestler Pierre Carl Ouellet was winning gold in major international promotions.  In the 2000’s he returned back to home to wrestle in the French Canadian indies before ultimately retiring from the ring in 2010.  However, a few years ago PCO returned to wrestling, but in a very different form.  Not only had his career been resurrected, but now it appears that he himself may have been resurrected from the dead!  PCO now stands for Perfect Creation One, and the monster-like being has show inhuman strength both in the squared circle and outside of it.  Many videos have surfaced online of the mysterious figure Destro torturing PCO and demonstrating incredible feats of strength, which have only intensified his lore.  Now PCO has joined Ring of Honor as part of Marty Scurll’s Villain Enterprises, and there is no telling what kind of destruction awaits members of the ROH roster.

PCO leads off the roster for the Ring of Honor Supercard of Honor 8-pack.  This game edition will begin mailing in late May.

From the Mushroom Kingdom in Canada come the Super Smash Brothers!

When you think of Canadian independent tag teams of the past 10 years, there is one duo that immediately springs to mind as one of the most prolific…the Super Smash Brothers.  Player Uno and Player Dos (often also known as Stupefied) are a unique duo with a fun offense that often plays homage to popular video games.  Although they like to have fun, they are serious about winning, and with Uno’s strength and Dos’ high flying, they have certainly done plenty of that.  In addition to winning accolades in Canada, the duo has also won tag team titles in the US, including the Chikara Campeonatos de Parejas.  Although the duo has undergone a darker change to their personalities in recent years, fans still remember the classic tag team fondly and can now include them in their Filsinger Games Indie promotion!

Player Uno and Player Dos join Davey Boy Smith Jr., Teddy Hart, “Speedball” Mike Bailey, RJ City, Tyson Dux and Brent Banks in the Best of Canada 8 Pack.  The set is available now HERE and has already begun shipping!

From the TV screen to your Indie Fed…its RJ City!

The wrestler in the best of Canada set, may be getting as much publicity from TMZ as he is from the Indie wrestling world, its the handsome and charismatic RJ City.  RJ has never shied away from a TV camera, being on kids TV shows as a youngster and now having his wrestling performances syndicated in over 100 countries.  He gained some recent notoriety as an opponent and reluctant tag team partner of Hollywood’s David Arquette.  RJ is fond of Hollywood, but less so the stars of today vs. the stars of 40 years ago.  Regardless he will make a fun addition to anyone’s indie fed.

RJ City joins Teddy Hart in the Best of Canada 8-pack coming in late March.
