First Wrestling Geek Fest a Big Success!


We came, we saw, we conquered.

Filsinger Games sponsored their first convention last weekend (Aug 14-16) called Wrestling Geek Fest, an event that combined professional wrestling, games, and popular culture. It was an action-packed convention and if you weren’t there you missed some wild unscripted moments!

Wrestling Geek Fest included live matches, comedy, music, and movies to say nothing of unpredictable improv events and live podcast interviews. Live matches featured a ladies tag team where the talented women were dressed as their favorite wrestling legends. The Absolute Intense Wrestling show on Friday night featured exciting mixed gender matches of men vs. women. The live matches on Saturday night featured carnival era fisticuffs (Olde Wrestling) and even alien wrestlers from the future (Champions of the Galaxy) to say nothing of hardcore action (Combat Zone Wrestling).

Wrestling Geek Fest featured a diverse lineup of entertainment including stars from Comedy Central, Destination America, and the WWE Network. Geek Fest also included an emotional moment about wrestler Tim Donst’s battle with cancer, which was depicted in a documentary called Wrestle Donst Wrestle, that debuted at the convention. Donst also wrestled at the event in a live classic match against former WWE tag champion Paul London.

If you weren’t at Wrestling Geek Fest, the DVD and downloads showcasing two nights of live matches will

The Bearded Lady Will Shock Olde Wrestling Fans!

 

This past May at the Olde Wrestling Speakeasy Spectacular there was the debut of the much anticipated Bearded Lady Mary Elizabeth Monroe. Monroe teamed with fellow bearded wrestler Matt Cross to defeat Clean Jeeper and Heidi the Riveter. The sideshow attraction became a quick fan favorite, and the Bearded Lady looks to continue her winning ways in the Olde Wrestling ring!

What success will the Bearded Lady have in your Olde Wrestling ring? Find out when the new game is available at Wrestling Geek fest August 14-16 and at Yet Another Extravaganza of Wrestling exhibitions on August 30 in Norwalk, OH.

hear are “Josh Prohibition” and “M-Dogg 20″…and for good reason. The two were largely responsible for putting the scene on the map in the early 2000s due to their exposure on the Backyard Wrestling DVDs and video games. Since that time, the two have wrestled around the world in just about every independent promotion in existence, both against each other and as a tag team named Youthanazia. In recent years Matt Cross has continued to build up his name throughout North America, garnering National TV acclaim. Meanwhile Josh Prohibition has limited his schedule to battles primarily at AIW, where he feels is his true wrestling home. Their feud reignited recently when Cross returned as part of the “Dudes on TV” faction, while Prohibition quickly came to the aid of Team AIW who sought to fight off this threat. Prohibition scored the win for his team at Absolution X, but there’s no telling when this long-time rivalry will end. The exciting new AIW game will be available at Wrestling Geek Fest during AIW’s Battle of the Sexes 2 show and throughout the weekend. Get a limited edition card for another Cleveland wrestling legend, JT Lightning, at the convention. The AIW game will go on sale online after the convention so get psyched—your indie fed is about to explode!

THEY’RE BACK! Headbangers Brute & Massacre Return to Action on August 15!

You can’t keep headbangers like Brute and Massacre down!

Nor also Sage Strong and Malta the Damager! The two big men will return as the Gladiators of Aethra on August 15 at Wrestling Geek Fest for a big tag bout on Saturday night! In their debut match last year in Jamestown, NY, Brute and Massacre suffered a double disqualification against the Greek Gods due to their extreme headbanging ways. What mayhem will ensue on August 15 in Cleveland?

You’ll find out when you attend Wrestling Geek Fest, the greatest new wrestling convention of the year. Get your tickets now, it’s going to be a big show! For all the information you need go to: http://www.wrestlinggeekfest.com.

But be careful. There will be Aethran militants in the streets of Cleveland…and they mean business!

Legendary Strongmen Will Test Their Power in Upcoming Olde Wrestling Pack

The legendary strongmen duo, Clean and Jerk, better known as the Jollyville Jeepers, are set to do battle in the Olde Wrestling ring.  The duo has performed at the Olde Wrestling Extravaganza before, where besides wrestling they attempted to set the tandem bar ball lifting record.  This duo may not have the grappling experience that other wrestlers do, but their unbridled strength is sure to give them an advantage!

The new Olde Wrestling Extravaganza pack will be available at Wrestling Geek Fest on August 14 in Strongsville, OH and at Yet Another Extravaganza of Wrestling on August 31 in Norwalk, OH. Games will be made available for sale online following the convention, along with our other incredible release, Absolute Intense Wrestling game.

Get psyched! Some of the very best in independent wrestling is coming YOUR way this month!

 

Tim Donst Returns to Wrestling and Joins AIW Game!


Tim Donst won the AIW championship in 2014, but unfortunately his reign ended early when it looked like his career would be cut short due to a kidney tumor. However, this year at the JT Lightning Invitational, Tim announced his return to wrestling and AIW at Absolution. He won his return match and now has his eyes set on reclaiming the AIW Absolute Championship for a third time.

Tim Donst will be part of Wrestling Geek Fest. Not only will he face off against Paul London in a first time ever encounter, but Wrestling Geek Fest will have the debut of the documentary Wrestle Donst Wrestle by Kenny Johnson, which chronicles his return to the AIW ring.

The Absolute Intense Wrestling game will be available August 14 at AIW’s Battle of the Sexes 2, and will be available for online preorder after the convention. Try to be patient, we know it’s great but you’ll have it in your hands by the end of August (if you want it badly enough before that book a flight to Cleveland for Geek Fest!).

The View from Federation HQ – 2015 Style

Hey gang, life is as exciting as ever, as I hope yours is too.

As many of you know, I moved from Jamestown NY to Sedona AZ in March (with a stop in Prescott Valley AZ in between). It was wild and crazy, moving is very stressful, especially after accumulating untold amounts of “stuff” after living 20 years in the same home. Our house had four floors including basement and attic, and there was a lot of packing, throwing away, and caught-in-the-middle decisions that had to be made.

But it’s done and I’m here. Daniel Bryan got married in Sedona and (yes) it’s easy to see why. It’s beautiful here with the red rocks and scenery, plus the Grand Canyon is only two hours away.

But better yet is that Filsinger Games keeps rolling along and is stronger than ever! We’ve evolved from a company that is focused on one game line, Champions of the Galaxy, to a company that is CONSTANTLY releasing new games and products with our licensing partners. We recently released the CAC Reunion pack and Evolve 2. Next up is Inspire Pro Wrestling  featuring some of the best talent from the lone star state of Texas. I can just imagine the fun of having these Texas rowdies invade your game promotions, like an nWo invasion angle.

But it’s going to keep getting better because summer is coming and we always kick it into high gear in the summer. I’ve been writing FUTURE SHOCK 2131 for the past several months and the excitement is off the charts!  For me, BLACK DEATH was a turning point as the GWF started to see grand, epic stories that are playing out with FUTURE SHOCK. And after 2131, then what? I already know, and it’s going to keep being incredible!

Usually the new GWF game would be released at GalactiCon in Jamestown, but the times they are a’changin. That doesn’t mean the end of GalactiCon…it can’t! The GalactiCon tradition began in 1990 and there’s no way we can just let it die. So this year marks a BIG step where GalactiCon gets even bigger than before. It’ll be part of an awesome new event coming to Cleveland OH on August 14-16 called Wrestling Geek Fest.

Wrestling Geek Fest is being organized by our very own Tournament Master, Todd Joerchel. Todd has a lot of experience running cons because he’s been a big factor in organizing GalactiCon for years. Wrestling Geek Fest will feature a live wrestling event by our new partner Absolute Intense Wrestling, along with great wrestling guests and plenty of other events. It’s GalactiCon with a lot of fun stuff going on around it!

We’re always on the move, never resting or settling down. Filsinger Games marches on stronger than ever!

In fact I’ve spent a lot of time today organizing a new game release, which is a terrible tease, but the plan is for this new release to be available for Wrestling Geek Fest. It’s aimed at new buyers, but as always our long-time games fans, especially the ones that love collecting our stuff, will still enjoy it. How can we not go after new buyers? We know our games are great. We need to keep spreading the word!

Even though I moved to Arizona, I’m still intimately involved in the game business. I was on the phone yesterday with one of the wrestling guests who is coming to Wrestling Geek Fest. This is a BIG one. Our GalactiCon fans will LOVE this, take my word for it. Just think back to 1998 and I’ll let it go at that. This should be very interesting.

I attended the Cauliflower Alley Club convention in April to promote our games and the CAC Reunion pack release. It was a blast, but it’s also clear a lot of wrestling promotions want to work with us. And why not? It’s a win-win when we release a game set. The wrestling promotion is happy. The wrestlers are happy. We’re happy. And most important of all, the fans are happy.

I’ve also been working closely with Darryl Banks and Werner Mueck on all facets of Filsinger Games card art, doesn’t get more enjoyable than that. Speaking of Darryl Banks, DON’T MISS GALACTICON THIS YEAR! You’ll be able to meet our gifted artist in person!

I’m also involved with our social networking campaigns. Did you know that our tweets are viewed over 15,000 times every Monday night? That’s just Monday night! And guess what…the numbers are growing every week. And on a monthly basis we’re reaching over 150,000 people! I remember back in the day how print advertising costed thousands of dollars to reach that many people.  We’re on the move, spreading Filsinger Games madness across the cosmos!

Todd Joerchel is our Director of Operations. He’s busy fulfilling orders from his home base in New Jersey. Darryl lives in Ohio, Werner is in Oregon, and Kris is in Maryland. We’re spread out across America, our reach is far and wide, but in the end Filsinger Games exists in the minds and imaginations of our game fans. Federation HQ is a mythical place where dreams are woven. You don’t need one location for that. You just need people with passion doing their jobs so we can make YOU happy.

That’s all I’ve ever wanted and I guarantee it will continue. FUTURE SHOCK 2131 will rock and so will the INSPIRE PRO pack and all our other exciting releases coming this summer.

Put that in your Club Galactica time capsule and smoke it!
