Explosion Match ‘Focused’ Promotion Created by Wrestling Legend

Last updated

Yes you read that headline right. Japanese wrestling legend and one of the innovators of the Deathmatch, Atsushi Onita, has revealed a brand new promotion focusing on Explosion style bouts.

The new promotion is FMWE, following on from the tradition of the famous FMW brand back in the day. Speaking at a recent press conference, Onita explained why he decided to create an explosion only promotion in 2021.

‘The meaning of E is explosion,’ Onita said [h/t/ Yahoo Japan]. ‘It is an explosion. It is an organization specializing in hardcore that is said in the world. There is a request to see an electric current blast in the United States, and we are doing an electric current blast all over the world.’

Onita is of course referring to the recent Barbed Wire Exploding Deathmatch that took place at AEW Revolution. AEW Champion Kenny Omega defended his title against Jon Moxley in the bout, which was designed as a tribute to the classic FMW matches of old.

‘E is also entertainment” Onita finished during the press conference. “Because of this era, I would like you to feel the power from FMW by returning to the origin.’
