In a press release on Thursday, IWTV stated:
Japanese independent wrestling powerhouse FREEDOMS is coming to IWTV.
The promotion, which is known for its hard hitting style and brutal death matches, will be releasing 15+ events from its 2019 catalog starting Monday, June 1.
The library features Japanese death match legends Jun Kasai and Masashi Takeda, plus Takashi Sasaki, Toru Sugiura, Ciclope, Miedo Extremo and more.

Pro Wrestling FREEDOMS was founded in 2009 by Takashi Sasaki, a deathmatch specialist who had been working for Big Japan Wrestling (BJW) since 2005 after spending the previous decade with DDT Pro. Over the years, FREEDOMS has become Japan’s premiere deathmatch company, forming an alliance with the US’ Game Changer Wrestling (GCW) that has seen both companies trade stars and co-promote events together. Some of FREEDOMS’ top stars include deathmatch legend and 4x King of FREEDOM World Champion Jun Kasai, Masashi Takeda, Toru Sugiura, and Daisuke Masaoka. Pro Wrestling FREEDOMS is the latest promotion to jump to IWTV, following recent partnerships with GCW, Sendai Girls, DEFY Wrestling, Combat Zone Wrestling, Absolute Intense Wrestling, and many more.
