-Paul London, former partner of Brian Kendrick in WWE, has been announced for the “Welterweight Wrestling 3” event in Cleveland, Ohio at Turners Hall, airing live on FITE TV on Apr. 29. Welterweight Wrestling describes itself as follows: “Welterweight Wrestling is in 2018 what cruiserweights were to the 1990s: the overlooked and undersized ready to make the industry take notice! We assemble the best roster of young, hungry athletes 185 pounds or under looking to make major waves, but are sometimes overlooked by major, and even regional promotions, when it comes to main event opportunities due to size. We look to break down the next barrier of inclusiveness by showing, regardless of stature, the size of the heart in all of these competitors will enable them to succeed on any level! Those athletes have a home. They are no longer overlooked. They are now… welterweights. Let the next breakthrough in pro wrestling begin.” More information at WelterweightWrestling.com.
