It all started in 2008 when 3 Pro Wrestling organisations in The Netherlands started the Summer Wrestling Tour. Which resulted in our first megashow dubbed Pro Wrestling Showdown. The Finest wrestlers in The Netherlands combined with stars from abroad provided a Pro Wrestling night like you've never seen before.
After this, Pro Wrestling Showdown went from 1 show, to 2 shows a year. It became clear that the Professional Wrestling matches were a fine example of inring performance. Technically solid matches, combined with an excellent atmosphere and beatifull arena's made Pro Wrestling Showdown a unique player on the Dutch Market. After it's reorganisation in 2012, on which a fresh start was made with a new team and a new attitude, Pro Wrestling Showdown is ready for a brand new Wrestling Year.
