Sione Finau

FROM: The Island of Tonga
HEIGHT: 6’ 1”
WEIGHT: 235 lbs.

SIONE FINAU IS OFF TO JAPAN

This decision is sure to shock many as Sione Finau is just a student in this business of professional wrestling. Even though Sione has not even made his in ring debut yet, his tremendous natural ability and “it” factor earned him the chance to perfect his newly learned craft in the dojo’s of Japan.

This is a the first student to ever win a Z1FSChallenge but it just goes to show you that everyone has a fighting chance to win this competition. We would like to thank all the wrestlers and staff that participated especially All Pro Wrestling for their hospitality in hosting our 4th Fighting Spirit Challenge in North American and for training their students the proper way. This was a very difficult decision. We had a ton of great talent represented in this challenge but we can only pick one and Mr. Finau is the man we have chosen to represent All Pro Wrestling and Northern California in Japan…Good Luck to all that participated in making this one of the most exciting FSChallenges to date.

WWE Hall of Famer EDGE Endorses BumpDrunk.com’s SHOGUN Scholarship Winner

As the youngest child of 13 siblings, Steven Walters loved watching his heroes battle inside the squared circle, but none captivated his attention more than “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan. “He was the man,” Walters emphasized. Hulk Hogan may have ignited his dream to become a professional wrestler, but it’s Walter’s hard work that is helping him take that dream to the pinnacle as the winner of BumpDrunk.com’s SHOGUN scholarship.

At only 25 year old, Walters will now be traveling to Japan, looking to shine by competing for one the world’s most talked about wrestling organizations, Zero-One. Walters will be training and living in Japan over the next three months – something his idol, Hulk Hogan, wasn’t able to accomplish until he was two years older than Walters. But Walters is no stranger to hard work or being on his own…

Steven Walters left an unstable home situation at the tender age of 15, fighting for survival at every turn, yet never losing sight of his dream. When Walters was of age, he began training to follow in his heroes’ footsteps, and after honing his craft with help from professional wrestling stars like former National Wrestling Alliance tag team champion Ricky Morton,TNA’s Gunner, and former WCW superstar Lodi – his life took a turn for the better the day he met WWE Hall Of Famer EDGE.

“Steven is the first and most likely only guy outside of WWE who I’ve kind of taken under my wing,” EDGE shared in an interview with BumpDrunk.com. “If I didn’t think he was a great kid with a great attitude I wouldn’t have anything to do with him.”

Walters’ attitude and work ethic earned him a WWE tryout, but also caught the eye of WWE Superstar and professional wrestling legend William Regal, who personally offered him a spot on a three-month tour of England.

Now, as the first winner of Bumpdrunk.com’s SHOGUN scholarship, Walters will be adding to his already impressive resume by training and learning through intense competition with such Japanese legends as former Zero-1 and Extreme Championship Wrestling world champion Masato Tanaka, former Zero-1, World Championship Wrestling Cruiserweight, and World Wrestling Federation Light Heavyweight Champion Shinjiro Otani, former Zero-1-MAX International Junior Heavyweight Champion Ikuto Hidaka, former NWA Worlds Heavyweight and Zero-1 Worlds Heavyweight Champion The Almighty Sheik, and current Zero-1 Worlds Heavyweight Champion Akebono.

BumpDrunk.com’s unique SHOGUN Scholarship was created to give a professional wrestler the means to compete in Japan to help further their career in this revered sport. Upon learning of this, EDGE’s thoughts mirrored a myriad of professional wrestlers from the past: “I wish there was something like this when I started.”

“I think it’s great for companies like BumpDrunk to invest in guys like Steven,” EDGE said of his protégé. “They’re the future of the business. Without them, there is no business. I hope Zero-1 is prepared to have their door blown off the hinges.”

BUMPDRUNK.com Presents “SHOGUN”: A Japanese Professional Wrestling Scholarship


The first question every professional wrestler should ask themselves is this:
 
“Do I want to truly make it in the world of professional wrestling or am I content to simply sit on the sidelines as a ‘weekend warrior’?”
 
This question is hard for many to answer, as real life problems can easily get in the way of one’s dreams – but for a select few – the desire to compete with the best by becoming one of best is so strong, nothing can or will stop them from achieving this goal.

These are the athletes that bleed Professional Wrestling, the select individuals that want it so bad, they work harder than most and it shows – it’s what separates them from the rest of the herd. But…
 
All that hard work is for nothing without one simple ingredient: OPPORTUNITY.
 
It is a very rare thing in this business to receive the opportunity to shine – but it’s even rarer that an individual step up and make the most of that opportunity when and IF it arises. We’ve all heard the stories of people that came close to greatness, but came up short when given the chance…
 
However, for the very small percentage of warriors that rise to the occasion – fame, fortune and honor are all within their grasp.
 
Are you one of those warriors? Have you put in years of hard work? Sacrificed more than anybody could understand?

Well, today is the day where one warrior gets their reward. A reward based on ability, athleticism, professionalism and respect for oneself, ones piers and for the business of Professional Wrestling. This is SHOGUN: A Japanese Professional Wrestling Scholarship awarded by BUMPDRUNK.com, to recognize excellence in Professional Wrestling and a high morale character.

On February 5, 2013, a warrior will be chosen. This warriors skills and work ethic will be at the highest level. They will have almost everything but that one very important ingredient: OPPORTUNITY. After February 5…this warrior will get the opportunity to take one step closer to making their dream a reality by competing in Japan for the prestigious Puroresu company, ZERO1. They will compete in the upper echelon of the Japanese Professional Wrestling world, against names like Masato Tanaka, Shinjiro Otani and Ikuto Hidaka. The only thing BUMPDRUNK.COM asks, is they represent themselves as professionally as possible and that they live up to the ability they’ve shown that won them this incredible opportunity.
 
This warrior will have their flight, room and board taken care of and he will be in charge of only one thing, to make it to the next level and become a modern day SHOGUN – a ring general any company would be proud to have on their roster.
 
We wish you all the very best of luck – send all video and resume submissions to bumpdrunk@gmail.com
