Aims

The group was established as a means to aid the many competing wrestling promotions in Japan. Members would share resources including training facilities and their wrestlers themselves. They would also coordinate the arrangements of their shows in order to avoid clashes. In addition to this "super shows" would be run with wrestlers from the member promotions competing on the same shows, the first of which occurred on November 14, 2006.
