While there are no household names in the third match confirmed for the Pro Wrestling SUNSHINE Championship tournament, which kicks off on September 25th in Eustice, Florida; don't be fooled into thinking that it does not contain wrestlers capable of ultimately walking away as the Pro Wrestling SUNSHINE Champion.
On one side of the ring is a man that stands shoulder-to-shoulder with Dave Finlay and Rebecca Knox as one of the finest Irish-born wrestlers ever, Sheamus Farrelly
. Having decorated himself with a host of titles he won in his native Ireland and continental Europe, Sheamus was brought to America by the WWE in 2006 where he has continued to hone his skills. Standing opposite him will be the NWA trained, East Coast regular, Jimmy Olsen
. A rising star in a number of promotions up and down America, Olsen has trained under some of the fan-dabi-dozi names in independent wrestling and will be keen to mark the SUNSHINE debut show with victory.
Will Jimmy Olsen be able to prove his independent wrestling education was more useful than Sheamus' all-WWE learning? Can Farrelly make a big statement in his first real exposure on the American wrestling scene? The only way to find out is simple - you need to be there live and in person at the first Pro Wrestling SUNSHINE show, Flashing Lights!

Heeding all of the SUNSHINE band members' calls for another big name to be announced for the Pro Wrestling SUNSHINE Championship Tournament on May 25th in Eustice, Florida; the SUNSHINE Board of Directors have confirmed today that a man from one of the fan-dabi-dozi American wrestling families will be competing for the Gold.
"The New American Dream" Cody Runnels
, son of the fan-dabi-dozi Dusty Rhodes and former World Tag Team Champion, will be in Eustice on May 25th to take on Pelle Primeau
for a place in the last eight of the SUNSHINE Championship tournament. Runnels, a former amateur state wrestling Champion, is packed full of potential and will be incredibly keen to make the first name on the Pro Wrestling SUNSHINE Champions Roll-Call instantly recognisable. Standing in his way is the CM Punk-trained Pelle Primeau; a man also packed with potential. Well-known on the East Coast as an innovative high-flyer, Primeau scored a pinfall victory over Chris Hero just four days ago at a Ring of Honor show and has made it abundantly clear he is ready to start adding some Gold to his collection.
Will Primeau start his Pro Wrestling SUNSHINE by taking the scalp of a Runnels family member? Will Cody Runnels live up to the hype surrounding him and his family name? Find out live and in person on May 25th in Eustice, Florida at the debut Pro Wrestling SUNSHINE show "Flashing Lights!"
