Moreover, he gained a number of national championships in Judo and Kung Fu.
He added: “However, the shows became more viral on social media recently after we established our Facebook page and began to publish the shows footages on it.”
Regarding the earliest EWR show, the founder highlighted: “Our first show was in 2014, and almost 3000 attended it, and they really praised our performances despite our poor facilities,” adding, “I made the ring, and I designed it to be safe for all wrestlers, in addition, the number of the first wrestlers in the federation were three men and two ladies.”
Royal Egypt was one of the most anticipated EWR shows, and it was compared to the world-famed WWE, Kabonga explained: “We didn’t want to imitate WWE shows, however, we influenced with them. But, we try to add our own mark, that’s why we changed the names of our titles to be related to Ancient Egypt’s history such as the Cleopatra championship which dedicated to ladies, and the Horus championship which is the highest-title in EWR.”
