WORLD-1 returns in 2025

From the desk of WORLD-1 President Mike Kehner:

I am thrilled to announce the triumphant return of Pro Wrestling WORLD-1, heralding a new era of action-packed entertainment set to captivate audiences worldwide in 2025.

Pro Wrestling WORLD-1, an iconic name in the wrestling industry, is making its comeback said Mike Kehner, President of WORLD-1. Our mission is to reignite the fervor and energy that wrestling aficionados have come to love and expect from the WORLD-1 brand.

The revival of Pro Wrestling WORLD-1 comes on the heels of a significant acquisition by ECWA during the challenging times of the pandemic. Recognizing the intrinsic value of the WORLD-1 tape library, ECWA sought to enrich its extensive collection and enhance online offerings during the COVID-19 era. However, discussions with ECWA management revealed their decision not to continue hosting events under the WORLD-1 banner.

With a fervent desire to honor the legacy of Pro Wrestling WORLD-1 and answer the clamor of devoted fans, I embarked on negotiations with ECWA management. Their unwavering support and cooperation have paved the way for an unprecedented collaboration. I am delighted to share that ECWA has graciously granted us the rights to the WORLD-1 name, enabling us to forge ahead with our vision.

In an exciting development, ECWA has extended their generosity by allowing us to showcase shorter events preceding their main cards. This unique partnership underscores our shared commitment to delivering unparalleled entertainment and fostering a sense of unity within the wrestling community.

As we gear up for the much-anticipated relaunch of Pro Wrestling WORLD-1, stay tuned for electrifying matches and unforgettable moments that will unfold online in 2025. Join us as we embark on this exhilarating journey, celebrating the rich heritage and boundless possibilities of Pro Wrestling WORLD-1.
