in July of 1974, promoter Ed Francis closed his Wrestling promotions for the next three years. Starting in December 1974 KIKU television channel 13 starting airing a one hour wrestling show out of the San Francisco Bay Area every Saturday afternoon to promote upcoming shows in Hawaii.

Only two shows ever took place, the first on December 25, 1975, and the last was held on January 15, 1975. The newspapers published no results from either show. Please enjoy the following shows, if you do have results please contact our web site and will we put the results up.
