Osaka Pro Wrestling


Osaka Pro Wrestling is a Japanese professional wrestling promotion, founded in 1998 by Super Delfin. In 2010 Osaka Pro started a close working relationship with American promotion Chikara. On March 1, 2014, it was announced that the promotion would be folding due to financial difficulties on April 20, 2014, after which all of its wrestlers would become freelancers.[1] However, after securing a new sponsor, it was announced that Osaka Pro Wrestling would continue under the new regime of president Yuji Sakagami and wrestlers Kuishinbo Kamen and Takoyakida. The new Osaka Pro Wrestling lost many of the old one's key wrestlers as well as their home base of Nasci Hall Umeda, forcing them to employ a new tour format.[2]
