Wrestle-1 officially announced a tournament to crown the first Wrestle-1 World Champion. A tournament of 16 wrestlers, open to Wrestle-1 talent and their direct affiliates has been set up to crown their very first champion.
The tournament format is a 16 man single elimination tourney over the span of 3 days with the tournament ending in one match on October 8th 2014, just a few days before Bound For Glory. The Great Muta noted that he will not be taking part in the tournament and wants younger talent to step up.
Because of the amount of wrestlers and the affiliates clause, it is likely that TNA wrestlers could be involved in the tournament. The tournament begins September 21 2014. Wrestle-1 has not shown off their world title just yet.
