King of Trios 2008 draws near, and today we add the most unusual trio to the tournament ranks yet (and that's really saying something)! Reuniting for the first time in years, Demolition is back in action, and Ax and Smash will bring their reunion tour to King of Trios by teaming with none other than One Man Gang! And if that's not enough to get you going, we're going to publicly announce another trio this weekend at "Two Eyebrows are Better than One!
"Wrestlers from all across the US - as far away as Hawaii - as well as from Canada and Europe have already been confirmed for tournament action this year. Trios madness runs rampant starting Friday night, February 29th, and continuing on both Saturday, March 1st and Sunday afternoon, March 2nd. Half of the participating teams will wrestle on Night 1, the other half on Night 2, and the survivors will clash on Night 3. All three days of the tournament will be hosted at the New Alhambra (the former ECW Arena) in South Phildadelphia, and this event will feature more trios action than you can shake a stick at!
This week, we've added hotel and travel information to our site to help those looking to stay in the area for King of Trios weekend, and there will be at least one special event (apart from the tournament,) for fans to attend. So far, King of Trios 2008 will feature:
-Team WWF (Demolition Ax & Demolition Smash & One Man Gang)
