A huge number of indy promotions are all banding together to put on a special show on Saturday, February 2, 2013. They are calling the event “National Pro Wrestling Day”. It is an all-day festival to celebrate the sport of professional wrestling and it sounds like a fantastic idea!
Some of the groups involved are: CHIKARA, Ring of Honor, EVOLVE, CWF Mid-Atlantic, Beyond Wrestling, Absolute Intense Wrestling, New York Wrestling Connection, WSU, Resistance Pro, School of Roc Class Wars, Fighting Spirit Wrestling, Kaiju Big Battel, Wrestling is Fun!, QWEST, International Wrestling Cartel, CTWE, Wrestling is Awesome and more!
There website doesn’t have a whole lot of information on it right now, but I am really looking forward to this event. I liken it to free comic book day and how the comic industry has used that marketing gimmick to raise awareness of comics and local comic retailers. Hopefully this can do the same for wrestling companies that aren’t named WWE or TNA.
Admission is free and on a first come, first served basis and it will be held at Derby Ink Gardens, 820 Spring Garden Street,Philadelphia, PA 19123. That is all I know at the moment but as soon as I learn more I will post it here!
