    I wanted to start this thread after watching a match between Claudio Castagnoli vs. Brodie Lee, Cesaro and Luke Harper in WWE today. These matches are awesome and I think it would be fun for us to share whatever video with can find on YouTube of wrestlers in indie promotions like Ring of Honor before they became "WWE Superstars".

    I recommend you look up the "King of Europe Cup" tournament that was held at Liverpool Olympia (in 2007 I think).

    I went to the show and it was basically a 2 day KOTR style tournament with many promotions sending 1 wrestler to represent them in the competition. You had well known companies such as TNA, ROH, CZW and plenty of others participating.

    Wrestlers on the show included:

    Claudio Castagnoli (Cesaro)
    Chris Hero (Kassius Ohno)
    PAC (Adrian Neville)
    Matt Sydal (Evan Bourne)
    El Generico (Sami Zayn)
    Nigel McGuinness (Desmond Wolfe)

    It really was a pretty star studded card when you look at what alot of the wrestlers went on to achieve afterwards. Check it out!
