  15. Notes: 9 / 7 months ago 

    [W-1 News] Following their very successful debut show on September 8th, WRESTLE-1 will be continuing on with their “raising an army” tour throughout the rest of this month.

    Keiji Mutoh held a press conference to announce the talent who will be competing for the shows this month as well of the inclusion of more “X” (surprise) wrestlers for each show. It was also announced that all match cards will be announced at the day of the shows.

    Some early questions and thoughts as we head into the shows. After the debut show, some lines have been crossed and tensions between wrestlers are indeed on the rise.
    ~ What is the future of Masayuki Kono and a possible alliance with the ZERO1 (Sato & Sai) invaders? What will be Masakatsu Funaki’s reaction of Kono’s betrayal?
    ~ Will Shuji Kondo’s ever be able to overcome Strong BJW’s Sekimoto and Okabayashi? Who will the “fans” accept as a real ace of WRESTLE-1,
    ~ KAI has already stated his intentions and is carrying the momentum after a win over Sanada, but will the fans choose to back? An ace is not an ace without the fans.
    ~ Speaking of Sanada… what are his intentions, will he sign with W-1 or remain freelance?
    ~ Who will be the mystery wrestlers that Keiji Mutoh will be bringing into the shows?

    Below is what has been officially announced for the shows…
