December 22nd: We are happy to announce that Billy Barboza with Weevil Whittaker are coming to FIP on January 8th! These two were noticed by WWN officials at Seminar/Tryouts. They are one of the most unique acts anywhere in wrestling. We look forward to seeing how they do in FIP.
December 22nd: IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Style Battle On January 7th and the new FIP on January 8th will now take place at The Ivy Astoria Event Center on 1920 E 7th Ave in Tampa, FL. This building is directly across the street from The Orpheum, so it is not a big venue change. Tickets will be available at www.TicketFly.com soon.
December 22nd: Tickets are now on sale for the EVOLVE return to Queens on February 25th. Reserved ringside seats have sold out for the last several EVOLVE events at La Boom. You can still get 1st row and stage tickets for February 25th, but act now because they will sell quickly.
December 22nd: Drew Galloway will return to EVOLVE on February 24th in Joppa, MD and February 25th in Queens. Galloway was suspended for hitting a referee at EVOLVE 73. Galloway's suspension will come to an end on January 1st, however Galloway has stated that he won't return until February. Galloway cites that EVOLVE officials and fans are ungrateful for him, especially since he is "trying to save EVOLVE from itself." He wants everyone to wait until he returns so we can see "how badly we need him."
December 22nd: WWN is proud to announce that Tracy Williams and Matt Riddle will now be co-head trainers at future WWN Seminar/Tryouts. Williams will concentrate on teaching the Catch Point wrestling style. Riddle will bring his MMA expertise to the WWN Seminar/Tryouts. The former UFC standout will focus on teaching how MMA principles and techniques can be transferred to pro wrestling. Of course, we will also add special guests. We are currently finalizing details on the next WWN Seminar/Tryout. Stay tuned, we'll have more soon.
December 22nd: The 2nd ever WWN Creative Seminar with Gabe Sapolsky will take place in Orlando on Wrestlemania weekend. It will be March 31st after the EVOLVE event. This is a rare learning experience and opportunity for anyone who ever wanted to get into the writing, booking, creative, producing or promoting side of professional wrestling. We will have more information soon.
December 22nd: We want to take a moment and give special thanks to Dick Togo for teaching the WWN Seminar and then giving us two great matches at the last EVOLVE weekend. Togo-san wrote a blog about his experience in EVOLVE. In it, he had high praise for Ethan Page saying, "You must remember his name, Ethan Page, 27 years old Canadian. He will surely be at the top in the near future."
December 22nd: Thank you for all your support in the past month. Our Holiday Season Sales on Blu-rays, DVDs and Gear were a huge success. You can count on even more Blu-ray releases in 2017! We wish you a happy holidays!
