Pro Wrestling in Hong Kong: 10 Years in the Making

December 3, 2019


Welcome to the Hong Kong Wrestling Federation. If you grew up on a diet of American wrestling like the WWE, you will be familiar with the characters, costumes, and theatrics associated with the show. Hong Kong’s own wrestling federation has been around for 10 years. This is the story of how a few die-hard fans built the league, taking it from their backyards to the big arena. Ho Ho Lun is pretty much synonymous with Hong Kong’s pro wrestling scene. A fan turned star wrestler, he founded the Hong Kong Wrestling Federation a decade ago. Although the shows were successful, and started attracting a cult following, Ho Ho Lun wanted to take the warehouse wrestling to new heights. He realized that he needed to look outside Hong Kong to take his training to the next level. And in 2016, Ho Ho Lun hit the big time, wrestling on the international stage at the WWE in the US. Since returning to Hong Kong, Ho Ho Lun has continued to help shape the scene and unearth new talent. In addition to the local Hong Kong wrestlers. Hoho Lun has managed to lure wrestlers from across the Asian region, including Japanese stars like the legendary Tajiri and Emi Sakura.

    There’s the Rock, Hulk Hogan, and our very own Ho Ho Lun. Can you think of any other pro-wrestlers from the past that made up a strangely big chunk of your childhood?
