Following on from my interview with the amazingly talented Kevin Gill last week (Click here if you haven't checked it out yet), I received an e-mail through this morning with an update on what to expect from the King of Indies show itself. While some of you may not be aware of the tournaments history (and if you are not then I urge you to read my interview with Kevin Gill) it really is a big deal and helped establish many of today’s top superstars, one of those being Daniel Bryan. Check out the news and info about everything going down on Friday and Saturday night below:
It's been 14 years since the original tournament series captured the imagination of a generation of independent wrestlers and promoters, and now it's just days away from the dramatic return of the King Of Indies tournament.
Friday March 27th and Saturday March 28th 8pm Pacific/11pm Eastern (Wrestlemania Weekend) in San Jose, Ca as part of the WWN Live Experience at the Santa Clara County Fairgrounds, and broadcast live to the world via Internet Pay Per View alongside incredible shows like Evolve 39 and 40, Shimmer 71, WWN Mercury Rising, and Kaiju Big Battel "Journey To The West Coast" on WWNLIVE.COM and also on demand replay and DVD.
