It was a risky proposition for Keiji Mutoh and his new wrestling promotion “Wrestle-1”. The idea of booking an entire show with very little in the way of announced wrestlers or details was ballsy, but it paid off tremendously. The show received rave reviews, including a great review from our very own Joe Lanza. The big question though — how were Mutoh and Wrestle-1 going to follow up?

Not only have they announced three upcoming shows but we have tons of already announced names. Those hoping each card would be a grab bag of freelancers will be sorely disappointed but for us sane fans it’s great to know what we’ll be getting the rest of September. Here’s a breakdown of dates, location and announced wrestlers for the next three Wrestle-1 shows (official cards will be announced day of show):
