Beyond Wrestling has announced its return.
SI Wrestling has reported that the promotion is set to unveil a new show titled, The Signature Series, on Thursday, February 25. Owner Drew Cordeiro said that they have been monitoring the independent wrestling scene, gauging what interests people, and believe this is the right time to return.
“We were able to figure out what the independent wrestling scene was lacking, and put together a series focused on a specific style of technical wrestling,” said Cordeiro. “Traditional technical independent wrestling is being overlooked, and tag team wrestling is always overlooked on the independent wrestling scene, and we’re going to highlight both. We’re also going to able to feature women’s wrestling, heavyweight wrestling, intergender wrestling, and hardcore wrestling.”
Cordeiro says that COVID-era wrestling has been lacking in atmosphere, and believes this series of shows will deliver both energy and a gritty presentation. Much like AEW, Beyond will have wrestlers ringside during the matches.
Per SI, "A slate of emerging stars is part of The Signature Series. The “Greatest Rivals Round Robin” tournament is the centrepiece of the series and features Chris Dickinson, Tony Deppen, Wheeler YUTA, and Matt Makowski. Beyond will also showcase Trish Adora, Jordan Oliver, a no-disqualification bout pitting Matthew Justice against SLADE, and the tag team Tournament for Tomorrow. Tournament for Tomorrow includes Nouveau Aesthetic’s Still Life and BLANK, The Bird and The Bee’s Willow Nightingale and Solo Darling, Milk Chocolate’s Brandon Watts and Randy Summers, The Rep’s Nate Carter and Dave McCall, Faith in Nothing’s Rickey Shane Page and Vincent Nothing, 40 Acres’ Tre LaMar and Pretty Boy Smooth, Mike Verna and Rex Lawless, and Shook Crew’s Bryce Donovan and Bobby Orlando."
Cordeiro is proud of the roster they've assembled, and can't wait for everyone to see their show.
