Wrestle-Z: The Beginning
In an alternate timeline, all over the world, the wrestling industry is falling. Some small indie companies shut their doors but the most affected by this was Japan. Eventually Japan started following the trend and slowly began to decay. The smallest companies in Japan shut their doors. And sadly in 2012, so did Dragon Gate. From Dragon Gate came the promotion DRAGON which was formed by Dragon Gate wrestler CIMA. DRAGON had some of the big names from Dragon Gate. CIMA, obviously, YAMATO, SHINGO, Akira Tozawa, Jimmy Susumu, Flamita, BxB Hulk, Masaaki Mochizuki, Don Fuji and more. Meanwhile in the States, the promotion HONOUR Championship rocketed to the top of the independent scene after taking in former DG-USA talent which closed when Dragon Gate did.
In June of 2014, CIMA contacted HCW Owner, James Archer. Both men agreed and the companies merged. Wrestle-Z was formed.
