Wrestling International New Generations (W*ING) was a Japanese professional wrestling promotion specialized in deathmatches.


After leaving Frontier Martial-Arts Wrestling in the summer of 1991, Kazuyoshi Osako and Kiyoshi "Mickey" Ibaragi founded Wrestling International New Generations (W*ING), with Osako as President and Ibaragi as Vice President. They would also lure away Mr. Pogo and Victor Quinones from FMW, taking away their number one heel and booker/talent exchanger.

Their first show took place on August 7, 1991, at the Korakuen Hall in Tokyo. W*ING would also have a talent exchange relationship with Puerto Rico-based World Wrestling Council, as well as sharing WWC's Caribbean Heavyweight and World Junior Heavyweight Championships between the two promotions. On March 21, 1994, W*ING closed its doors due to the massive loss of money. Quinones would later form International Wrestling Association of Japan later that year.

After W*ING[edit]

Since 1995, Ibaragi has held several one-off W*ING reunion shows until 2010.

Mr. Pogo formed an offshoot promotion in 2001 called World W*ING Spirit (WWS).
