The three promotions - Kitsune Pro Wrestling, Excalibur Wrestling Company and Paradise Pro Wrestling - will seemingly work together from their three transatlantic locations. Kitsune Pro Wrestling will be run by current Coastal Zone Championship Wrestling performer and former Coastal Resort head trainer Fox Mask and be based in Portland. Fox Mask is undoubtedly the best known of the three owners, given that he is actually decent in the ring. He has won the CZCW Championship on seven occasions over the last 15 years, and when he talked about creating "a special corner of the wrestling world inside Kitsune Pro Wrestling" I actually believed him. He was also keen to allay fears that he is stepping away from CZCW any time soon, insisting he wanted to take his number of title reigns into double figures before walking away. In Florida, Paradise Pro Wrestling will be run by Frank Roberts - best known as Fabulous Frank, a retired wrestler who worked regularly up-and-down the East Coast of America for a string of no name companies and had a spell working for Pittsburgh Steel Wrestling a few years ago. The 57 year-old - pictured above during his last days as an in-ring competitor - promised he will utilise every page of his contact book to ensure he brings some of the best young talent into PPW and the Three Kingdoms. I have no idea if he possesses a contact book to be proud of but he insisted that: "I know everyone that is worth knowing in the wrestling business and as soon as they see a kid breaking out in New York or in Canada, I'll get them doing their thing in Paradise Pro Wrestling. I want to give the fans the very best in wrestling and the very best knows no bounds." We'll see. The third company will be based in Birmignham, England and is owned by former Mid Atlantic Wrestling stand-out Curtis Jenkins - he was the English one in the Atlantic Connection with the equally forgettable Riley McManus. Apparently fine in the ring, Jenkins spent a number of years in MAW learning from Rip Chord before Chord's retirement and hopes to bring a taste of MAW to the Excalibur Wrestling Company. "MAW prides itself on being a proving ground for the very best in the business and I want to do the same for British and European wrestlers. Jimmy Hernandez, Steven Parker and Big Bruiser Findlay are among the now household names that have competed in MAW and in 10 years time, I look forward to standing in front of you and reeling off the well-known stars that have stepped through the EWC ropes." Jenkins didn't make any mention of the rumours that he is banned from the US for the foreseeable future due to visa trouble that he experienced in 2014. All three owners confirmed that they will hold their first shows in January and just when the conference was set to finish Fabulous Frank caught his two "rivals" unaware by unveiling a title belt. The PPW owner declared the belt to be the Three Kingdoms Championship and invited both men to take part in a tournament to crown the first champion. Roberts asked both men to send their best four wrestlers to Florida in the summer and take on four of his own, to which both responded in the affirmative. On the face of it; the whole thing looks like it will probably upset The Confederation of the Territories who have prided themselves on being able to import/export talent from each other and put on shows that no other independent companies can match. We assume the Three Kingdoms will be hoping to match that - with is a good thing - though given Fox Mask's links to CZCW, we aren't completely sure where this idea stems from. Also; Sam Keith can be notoriously prickly about these sorts of things so we don't expect Foxy's history on the East Coast to appease the MAW owner forever but it should give the Three Kingdoms' time to build up some momentum (though not too much). It'll be interesting to see what they can do with it. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
