Default Congrats to Fergal Devitt of bray.

Did ya ever hear the expression big in japan?

Well Fergal Devitt has been working as a professional wrestler in japan for the past few years. In japan wrestling is treated as more of a sport with no emphasis on the typical stupid american over the top sports entertainment antics.

Anyway Fergal has made a name for himself out there and now a new company is making him a focal point of their organization which potentially could be huge for him.

Fergal "Prince" Devitt, who currently holds the IWGP jr. tag team title with Ryusuke Taguchi, and is widely considered near the top as the best in-ring performers in the world today, was announced as the newest member of the Wrestling Revolution Project stable.
WRP is Jeff Katz' new promotion that will produce a 13-week season of episodic wrestling television geared toward the Internet that will be filmed later this year.
Devitt is originally from Ireland, but is now based in Japan, and has worked for New Japan Pro Wrestling since 2006.
Devitt placed fourth last year for the Lou Thesz/Ric Flair award behind John Cena, Takashi Sugiura and Masato Yoshino for the 2010 Wrestler of the Year.
He placed third behind Daniel Bryan and Davey Richards for the Best In-Ring performer in the world.
He and Taguchi placed fourth behind The Kings of Wrestling, Motor City Machine Guns and Beer Money in the tag team of the year voting.
All of these placings were with the major disadvantage of not being seen regularly in the United States.
He also placed sixth for best flyer, and had three of the top 12 matches in the world for 2010 as voted by readers of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

Fergal is ripping it up in Japan, although it may not look like here.








Fergal is a legit Irish success story.
In Japan, wrestling is thought of being as somewhat of a legitimate sport. As in, everybody knows its not real but news paper and the mainstream media still cover it. There is more emphasis on the sport over the entertainment.

He's tiny, imagine what the Undertaker would do to him.
He should stay in Japan for his own safety.
