On one weekend in October, 2001 the face of indie wrestling was changed forever as the foundations for the future of the American wrestling scene, and the next generation of stars, were created. Out in Vallejo, California, the All Pro Wrestling promoton presented its fully loaded 2001 King of Indies tournament. Fully Loaded might sound like a clichÃ©, but it's the only way to explain the massive amount of talent for this two day single elimination tournament.
KOI Round One
Doug Williams vs. Adam Pearce
Bison Smith vs. Tony Jones
Donovan Morgan vs. Scoot Andrews
Frankie Kazarian vs. Samoa Joe
American Dragon vs. Spanky
Christopher Daniels vs. Super Dragon
Jardi Frantz vs. AJ Styles
Vincenzo Massaro vs. Low-Ki
These sixteen men put on a show that rivals the Super J Cup tournaments in Japan. Several of the wrestlers, including Samoa Joe, Christopher Daniels, AJ Styles and Spanky, would go on to become major worldwide wrestling stars while others continue to shine on the independent scene and overseas. This tournament inspired RF VIDEO to create a wrestling promotion which would feature all the qualities that the wrestlers in the King of Indies displayed: Intensity, Brutality, and Honor. Now, in this two night event from APW you can watch the tournament, which completely changed indie wrestling, in your own home!
