It's a great time to be alive, everybody. CWF and Harbin-based "Middle Kingdom Wrestling" are hosting their first ever event in Shanghai this Sunday at 5pm, near Shanghai Stadium.

Can you dig it, sucka?


So, no guarantees on this one, but judging by Middle Kingdom Wrestling's YouTube channel and website, this could be incredible. Looks like some of these guys are really saying their prayers and eating their vitamins. This truly could be the best there is, the best there was, the best there ever will be. From their site:

"Our goal is to take the wonderful product of PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING and introduce it to as many fans as possible not only here in The Middle Kingdom, but around the world as well. We believe with China’s 5000 years of history and MKW’s vision to give wrestling fans exciting action in the ring, that MKW will truly stand out in the world of professional wrestling."

They've got this old-school Nintendo styled trailer for this season on YouTube. It's pretty next-level.

So this happens on Sunday, May 15 from 5pm-8pm. Tickets are 100rmb, which you can grab by scanning the QR code on that flyer, or you can grab them on site. Apparently, this event is a Triple Threat Match: Dalton Bragg Vs. Seflie King Vs. Big Sam 3:51, along with a Singles Match: Ash Vs. King of Man.

Which is... oh hell yeah, we're on board for all of that.

Wait, "Selfie King"?

Now, that's a gimmick.

Address: Shanghai Stadium, Gate 7, Lingling Lu, near Xietu Lu (东乾文化艺术中心).

Your SmSh correspondents will be there, and we'll likely have a report back next week. And that's the BOTTOM LINE.

"Woooo!" -- Rick Flair
