CHIKARA sent this in:

UK legend JOHNNY SAINT to make US debut at CHIKARA’s “King of Trios”!

He’s been called “The Master of a Thousand Holds,” “The Houdini of the Mat” and is probably the one man who best personifies the Lancashire style of wrestling made famous on the now-defunct World of Sport wrestling program from England. He’s the incomparable Johnny Saint, and for the first time in his illustrious, 50-year career, he is coming to the United States – for 1 WEEKEND ONLY!
All too often in the wrestling business is the label of “legend” tossed liberally about – but make no mistakes about it – they don’t come much more legendary than Johnny Saint. At King of Trios 2009, starting on Friday night, March 27th, 2009 at the ECW Arena in Philadelphia, he will team with “The Master of a Thousand Holds” Mike Quackenbush and “El Maestro de Mil Llaves” Jorge Rivera to form a dream team the likes of which we will probably see just once in a lifetime.
It’s hard to imagine that in the 50 years since Johnny Saint turned pro, he has never wrestled in the United States…but that gross omission will be put to rest when we unleash King of Trios 2009 in the month of March! Don’t miss what might be your only chance to see this living legend, live and in person when Saint, Quackenbush and Rivera come together to form “The Masters of a Thousand Holds” in Philly!

Saint confirmed his participation in this short video:

As of today, these 4 teams are confirmed for the tournament:

The Masters of a Thousand Holds: Mike Quackenbush & Jorge Rivera & Johnny Saint
Incoherence: Hallowicked & Frightmare & Delirious
Team PWG: El Generico & the Young Bucks (Nick & Matt Jackson)
The Osirian Portal: Amasis & Escorpion Egipcio & Ophidian

…plus a 5th team is set to qualify Sunday at “Revelation X” in Philly when The Fabulous Three (of Larry Sweeney, Mitch Ryder & Buck Hawke) take on the Saturday Night Slam Masters (of Players Uno, Dos and Create-A-Wrestler)!

New York City fans will want to take advantage of a fan-organized bus trip to see “Revelation X” in Philadelphia, so they can witness the season kickoff, and be among the first to purchase King of Trios 2009 tickets. Drop by the sub-page and read up on details or e-mail the trip organizer at:
