Ring Warriors is an American developmental professional wrestling promotion based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Ring Warriors was initially a member promotion of the National Wrestling Alliance from its inception in September 2011, but in 2012, Ring Warriors separated from NWA.

History[edit]

In the early 1990s Howard Brody was a business partner with the late wrestling great Hiro Matsuda and together they created an Americanized version of New Japan Pro Wrestling's World Pro Wrestling Japanese TV show for U.S. TV called "Ring Warriors." In a relatively short period of time, the Ring Warriors brand became the most successful pro wrestling television brand across the European continent and throughout parts of Asia and Africa, drawing more viewers than either World Championship Wrestling or the World Wrestling Federation. While the goal of Ring Warriors was to eventually create a U.S.-based promotion with the same philosophy and style as what was presented on TV, Matsuda died before that goal was realized. Brody, along with partners Larry Brannon (a.k.a. Vito DeNucci) and Paul Jones intend for this incarnation of Ring Warriors to realize that goal.[1]

On May 2013, Ring Warriors announced a restructuring of its organization. Paul Jones, who had been Chief Executive Officer of Ring Warriors, LLC since it was first established in September 2011, was moved to business development advisor for the company and consultant on the Ring Warriors executive board. In addition to his new duties at Ring Warriors, Jones was the Battling Bombshells CEO and President. Also, the managing partners Larry Brannon and Howard T. Brody assumed the roles of COO and CEO respectively and the company also announced it has secured Angel Financing from a private funding group that has offices in South Florida and Las Vegas. The private funding will enable Ring Warriors to begin its long-awaited foray into television production and the company will have its first set of tapings in South Florida this July.[2] On March 20, 2014, Ring Warrioirs announced an International TV Distribution deal with Fighting Spirit.[3]
