A-Merchandise hinted that something big was coming to the country this June and today we can confirm exactly what that something is as the Revolution returns to the nation’s capital on Saturday June 15th 2013 for a history making night of Pro Wrestling At Its Best as we present ‘When Thunder Strikes’ live from the world famous York Hall, Bethnal Green.
We are pleased to announce that joining us on what promises to be an epic night of action will be non other New Japan Pro Wrestling’s, JUSHIN THUNDER LIGER, who will be making his first ever appearance in the UK under the moniker that saw him earn worldwide fame and the title of bona fide legend in the sport of professional wrestling.
The UK holds a special place in the heart of Liger as it’s the place where he spent an early portion of his career learning his trade under the name Fugi Yamada. In fact it was on these shores he gained his first championship success defeating Mark ‘Rollerball’ Rocco for the World Heavy Middleweight Championship in a contest that is still talked about by wrestling historians to this day.
Upon returning to Japan from this excursion, Yamada donned the mask and distinctive red & white attire, transformed himself into Jushin Thunder Liger and never looked back.
A true definition of a global superstar Liger has made a habit of obtaining championship gold. An 11 time IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion, winner of the 2000 Super J Cup, 1992, 1994 & 2001 Best of Super Juniors and 6 time co-holder of the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship, these are just a small number of the numerous titles that he has held throughout his extraordinary career. The masked high flyer has also been involved in many historic landmark moments including competing in the first ever match in the history of WCW Monday Nitro at the start of the historic Monday night wars.
An inductee in the prestigious Wrestling Observer Hall of Fame (1999) Ligers has also received numerous awards in the newsletters annual honours list including 3 time Most Outstanding Wrestler of The Year, 4 time Best Technichal Wrestler & 5 time Best Flying Wrestler.
Quite simply put Jushin Thunder Liger is one of the most decorated performers in the entire world. A living legend and on Saturday June 15th we will get the once in a lifetime opportunity to see him compete live and in person in the UK as JUSHIN THUNDER LIGER JOINS THE REVOLUTION!
Also confirmed to compete on this very special evening is current reigning Revolution Pro Wrestling Cruiserweight and IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion PRINCE DEVITT as well as one of the stars of Impact Wrestling’s hit TV show British Bootcamp ‘PARTY’ MARTY SCURLL.
