    Following multiple requests from Miro to add more of a European flavour to our ever growing family, and Cesaro placing this name on our desks over and over again.

    'The Most International Brand in Wrestling(tm)' is delighted to reunite and set THE BAR even higher than before

    Fusion Pro Wrestling has been working with recent signing Tetsuta Naito on the contract negations for the next two members of our roster. Naito asked our CEO Seán "What do you like in wrestlers?". He responded "I like investing in the future....and I also think you can't beat a hoss that's tough as nails and takes no prisoners."

    Our next two picks perfectly reflect that.


    First, we are welcoming a man who our CEO has personally been a massive fan of ever since his early days in Dragon Gate. When he joined NJPW he was ecstatic for the rest of the world to see just how good he is. Little did he know that he would evolve into perhaps the best wrestler in the world today. In 2019 he had a 5 star match, two 5.5 star matches, another 5 star and a 5.25 star match in 2020. And just last week he gave us another 5 star rating and probably the best match of the entire Wrestle Kingdom show.

    We are proud to welcome Shingo Takagi to our ranks.

    tenor.gif?itemid=18207497

    ....AND we are proud to bring a man who is set to break the main event scene in NJPW. He is just one match away from silencing any critics he may have. And, in a real story, was in an elevator in a London hotel with myself and my wife last year, and was struggling to turn down our offer of a slice of the pizza we were bringing back to our room, as he kept saying how good it smelled and how long it had been seen he had some food! Well, we hope bringing you to our roster is as good as that pizza.

    Please welcome SANADA to our ranks!

    5. Tetsuya Naito
    6. Shingo Takagi
    7. SANADA

    But now we see that this had paid off for Naito. And the stage is set for our PPV. Bullet Club is on our roster....The Four Horsemen are on our roster....and now Los Ingobernables de Japon are the latest stable to join our ranks. It only seems appropriate that these groups and more will collide at.......STABLE WARS!!!!

    All Star Bruisers have aggressively sought out this woman to spear head their women's division. She's had a meteoric rise the past year, starting 2020 as part of the NWA's women division, and ending it as the exciting future of the AEW's women's division.....or so they thought.

    Due to the confusion between both the NWA and AEW, the suits at Bruisers HQ have stepped in and quickly signed her to deliver on their exciting vision. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Thunder Rosa:

    The draft wouldn't be the draft without this pick. I have honestly lost count of how many times I have made it at this stage. A pick made more often than even Christian to Liz's promotions.

    I am of course speaking of my Japanese legends buy one get one free deal where I am able to draft them in this stip round because one is a former MNG world heavyweight champion... wait that is not a prestigious enough championship to qualify him but Necro's "Irish Back Garden World Championship" is... okay then he was GHC champion 3 times while his partner won it once (probably other ways that make them eligible but I'm too lazy to check)
    The Global Honored Crown Heavyweight Championship is the professional wrestling world heavyweight championship in Japanese promotion Pro Wrestling Noah.

    Most of you already know who I'm referring to but if you are new to the draft I am taking

    All Star Bruisers is continuing it's focus on women by taking in not one, but two, of the most dominating stars of the Knockout division in the last 4 years.

    One is the Demon Assassin who deleted what should of been undeleteable, the other is the longest reigning champion of the division; Rosemary and Taya Valkyrie.

    Fusion Pro Wrestling received a strange memo this evening, and it turns out it’s from our latest signee. It’s simply reads:

    “This stable war of yours is leaving some wrestlers behind. We are coming to look after the forgotten, the ones cast aside. We will help them take back what is rightfully theirs. And you will all do the same thing as them.

    You will join us.”





    Join The Dark Order

    Brodie-Lee-New.jpg

    It is the exalted one, Brodie Lee has joined FPW.






    But he isn’t alone. The former JAPW Heavyweight Champion is bringing another champ with him. A man he has won tag team gold with. A man that time has forgotten, but at one stage was the most dangerous man in wrestling. He appeared on the very first Fusion Pro Wrestling show, and he haven’t booked him since.....which Brodie has clearly used for his agenda.
