Pro-Wrestling Shi-En (Japanese: プロレスリング紫焔しえん, Hepburn: Puroresuringu Shi-En) is an Osaka-based Japanese professional wrestling promotion founded in 2010 by Eiji Sahara, better known by the ring name Kiai-ryuken Ecchan, with the goal of filling-in the spot left by the closure of Hustle.[1] The name Shi-En (紫焔, lit. "purple flame") is a play on the word shien (支援), meaning "support".[2] The mottoes of the promotion are "Energize Osaka" and "Bring life back to pro-wrestling".[3] In addition to monthly paid shows, the organization holds many free shows in a special outdoor ring at Uehonmachi Hi-Hi Town, next to the Uehonmachi Station.[4]

History

The promotion was founded by Eiji Sahara, who was a member of the student wrestling club called Osaka Wrestling Federation (OWF) in Osaka Gakuin University, under the ring name Kiai-ryuken Ecchan.[5] Throughout 2009, Sahara organized a dozen wrestling events with his fellow classmates in a makeshift ring set up in Triangle Park, in Amerikamura, Osaka. The following year, the promotion was officially founded and, on February 20, a pre-launch event titled "ƒ (forte)" was held at the Nipponbashi 4-chōme Theatre.[2][6] On March 6, a second pre-launch event titled "ƒƒ (fortissimo)" was held in Triangle Park; then, on March 21, the official launching event titled "ƒƒƒ (fortississimo)" was held at the Black Chamber in the Creative Center Osaka.[6]

On February 21, 2015, the promotion held its 5th anniversary event at the Osaka Prefectural Gymnasium.[2]

On September 15, 2018, and March 31, 2019, the promotion took part in two of Keiji Muto's Pro-Wrestling Festival events, held respectively in Kashihara, Nara and Hanyū, Saitama.[7]

On February 9, 2019, the promotion held its first event in Tokyo, at Shin-Kiba 1st Ring.[8]

On March 22, 2020, Shi-En held its 10th anniversary event at Cool Japan Park Osaka.[9]
