We told you time and again that we're on the hunt for the best independent wrestling from across the globe.
We meant it.
Today, we're thrilled to announce the addition of our first international partner: International Pro Wrestling: United Kingdom!
IPW:UK, founded in 2004, is based in Rochester in the United Kingdom. The IPW:UK World Championship is currently held by ring veteran Jimmy Havoc.
We have partnered with IPW:UK to carry all of their 2017 Supershows live, and they'll exclusively be on FloSlam. These shows are scheduled to occur every other month beginning with SuperShow VI on January 22nd, 2017.
These cards feature wrestlers familiar to fans of the world's top independent promotions and are sure to be instant crowd pleasers.
But don't take our word for it. You'll be able to check it out for yourself. As part of our partnership with IPW:UK, all previous SuperShows will also be available in our library. Look for those beginning next week. You're gonna dig them.
And there's more. The addition of IPW:UK marks the official launch of our new FloSlam World Premiere events.
This series will feature events that are pre-recorded, but we'll air them in streaming format just like our usual live events. If you're a wrestling fan, taped cards are nothing new for you. We're bringing that age-old wrestling tradition to the modern, streaming world. You'll tune in to the stream just like you would any live event. All you have to do is avoid spoilers, right?
We hope this serves as a catalyst for fans from around the world to watch amazing wrestling together and discuss it in real time via social media.
This new concept will allow us to bring you wrestling from venues where it proves difficult to deliver you the kind of world-class live stream FloSports is known for, and it frees us up to bring you even more exciting wrestling from a wide variety of promotions around the world.
Best of all, it will allow us to fill the void during midweek off-nights, as who wants to go a day without wrestling? I mean, not me. If you can't join us for the premieres, we'll still post the video on demand for you to enjoy on your own schedule.
Our first IPW:UK FloSlam World Premiere will debut right before Christmas. It's IPW:UK SuperShow 5, which features a main event of Cody Rhodes vs. Will Ospreay. These two tremendous talents have never faced off and frankly, we are confident this is going to be one hell of a match.
Oh, and the co-main event features Zack Sabre Jr. taking on Matt Riddle.
December is just the start of our IPW:UK FloSlam World Premieres. In 2017, we'll exclusively debut five additional IPW:UK shows in the months in between their live SuperShows. And all of these events will be added to our growing library of great pro wrestling action for you to enjoy at your leisure.
Now, FloSlam subscribers will have access to 16 more world-class indie wrestling events over the next year via our partnership with IPW:UK. Combine this news with our announced partnerships with EVOLVE, SHINE, Full Impact Pro, American Combat Wrestling and House of Hardcore, and we hope you can see our dedication to providing tremendous value for all wrestling fans.
Don't wait to sign-up, either, or you'll miss our exclusive live broadcast of House of Hardcore 21, starting at 8pm EST tomorrow night. On top of House of Hardcore 21, you'll get access to all of our live events, unlimited usage of our deep historical library, our upcoming slate of FloFilm feature documentaries and our FloSlam World Premiere events.
And coming in 2017: Style Battle, the newest wrestling concept from EVOLVE founder and ECW/ROH veteran mastermind Gabe Sapolsky.
Sign up today! All of this is available for $20 a month, or $150 per year (just $12.50 a month!) on an annual pass that also gives you access to every site in the FloSports family, including FloCombat, FloGrappling, FloBoxing and many more.
Finally, as we always tell you: this is not the end. It's just the beginning.
Our search for great pro wrestling continues around the globe, and we aren't stopping.
