Pro Wrestling Federation of Pakistan (PWFP) also known as PWF Pakistan is a Pakistani wrestling promotion, founded in 2012 in Karachi, Pakistan. Its inception was by PWFP president and chairman Nauman Suleman. Kamran Mughal joined Nauman Suleman as the Executive Vice President. Since July 28 of 2017.
On 12 April 2012, Pakistan Pro Wrestling Federation Entertainment (PPWFE) held their first-ever show in Karachi with a little over 90 people at Kalyana Academy. Initially, the drive started with 12 people, but as the trainings began, the people began to understand that it's not a cakewalk, they backed out after just 2 days of training and only 4 people left which were Nauman Suleman, Ali Qazi, Haider Naqvi and Muhammad Yousaf (Cena Jr.).
This marked the new beginning of pro-wrestling in Pakistan after nearly 5 decades since Antonio Inoki tried to open a wrestling school in Pubjab which never saw the light of the day.
The company was named "Ring of Slam" which was situated at 24/7 Gym in Karachi. All matches were held on a wrestling ring which cost around 600,000 PKR. On Jan 9, 2018, PWFP held its first-ever mega public-driven event at Atrium Mall. They introduced a National Television Championship which was defended in the Mall. The ROS World Heavyweight Championship was also introduced.
Then after a few months, they changed the company's name to Pro Wrestling Federation of Pakistan to become more nation-friendly. On Jul 28th, 2018, PWFP introduced their PWFP Season 1. In December 2018, the PWFP Ultimate Championship was introduced with Jordan being the first champion. In April 2019, PWFP announced a new PWFP Hardcore Championship which would be defended in a Royale Battle match. On April 28, 2019, PWFP held its first pay-per-view event "Rumble in Pakistan" in Karachi. It gained a lot promotion. Panda won 30 Men First Ever Rumble in Pakistan and became the inaugural PWFP Hardcore Champion. In 2019, RJ Faddy became the head coach of Pro Wrestling Federation of Pakistan.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic in the beginning of 2020, all major events and shows planned by PWFP took a hit but, they were not cancelled and 2021 will see all those events coming back in a bigger and better way than they were initially planned for.
