The much anticipated Pro Wrestling World Cup has now officially begun.
If you have not yet heard of the tournament or are unaware of the format then check out the statement from WCPW below for full clarification:
“Run over ten separate dates beginning March 21st, the Pro Wrestling World Cup will see competitors from six continents compete in eight preliminary tournaments – to be held in several different countries.
The preliminaries will see eight men competing in a single fall elimination tournament. Each preliminary tournament will consist of competitors from a single country: Canada, England, Germany, Japan, Mexico, Scotland, USA. A tournament will also be held for competitors from the Rest Of The World, with eight further countries represented. Two winners will proceed from each tournament.”
WCPW sent out a tweet that appeared to confirm the next two participants in the United States Qualifying round of the tournament. Former WWE star Cody Rhodes and IMPACT Wrestling’s James Storm will be joining the already confirmed Bobby Fish and Ricochet in Manchester on July 21st.
Tickets for the event are available to purchase now via Eventbrite.
