Middle Kingdom Wrestling, founded by Adrian Gomez, is an independent wrestling promotion based out of China. The promotion recently held an event, the first of its kind, that was used as a diplomatic tool with the United States. Held in Changchun City and Harban City, MKW hosted an event described as “Pro Wrestling being used by United States Government and it’s agencies as a diplomatic tool, to bridge gaps between people and cultures…with the goal of easing recent tensions between the nations.”
It’s said that U.S. officials reached out to Gomez, an American currently living in China, for this two-night special event. The event featured commentary from GCW announcer Kevin Gill.
“I’ve been blessed to work on an insanely diverse array of incredibly unique events, at a plethora of locations, but never in my life did I imagine that the two most powerful nations on the planet could and would come together in the spirit of diplomacy through the magic of professional wrestling. People get caught up in negativity and toxicity about our great sport, but I invite everyone to take a step back, take a deep breath, and think about how magical it is for wrestling to be reaching new fans in countries like China, and for Chinese talent getting an opportunity to be seen by the world.” Gill continued, “Imagine seeing this unfold through the eyes of a person getting immersed in wrestling for the first time. It’s purely magical and I am humbled and honored to be included.”
With more footage to air soon, MKW has released one match so far to their YouTube channel. A tag team bout featuring M.A. and Uncle Money against Zombie Dragon and Black Mamba can be seen below.
Owner Adrian Gomez issued a press release following the festivities. In it, Gomez noted that “the potential for pro wrestling to act as a vessel to bring awareness to cultural and sports positivity continues to be untapped, and we’re delighted to finally see pro wrestling events taking place in the realm of diplomacy between nations.”
