Lucha Libre School

September 21, 2013

People have asked me “Leroy, who was the one man who when you were a child you watched pro wrestling TV shows, you said that’s the guy I wanna be when i grow up?” Well that answer came two-fold and I am going to write a 2 part article on the answer for this. One man was a manager but we will get to that in the next article. But for this article, I’m going to write about my favorite professional wrestler growing up, Mil Mascaras. It might sound crazy but when I was a kid I wanted to be a Luchador! I wanted to go to Lucha Libre  school and learn to fly like the amazing Mil Mascaras.Lucha Libre School

Mil Mascaras was probably the most graceful athlete in any venue I had ever witnessed he could fly through the air like no one before him. Mil Máscaras (born Aaron Rodríguez, July 15, 1942) is one of the original “Big Three” (the other two being El Santo and Blue Demon) of the lucha libre tradition in Mexico. He is considered to be one of the most influential wrestlers of all time for enhancing and popularizing the lucha libre style around the world. His brother Dos Caras is as widely well known in the Mexican pro wrestling circuit as him, but it was Mil who came to the WWF and changed what I thought wrestling could be. A lot of kids had baseball or football posters but I used to buy Pro Wrestling magazines as a child just to get his pictures to hang up in my room.  I remember listening to sports radio shows hoping that they would give a report on professional wrestling and talk about my hero.

He was widely respected in the wrestling world. In a business where allegiances come and go and wrestlers turn face and heel on the drop of a bucket, I can never once remember seeing Mil turn his back on the fans in the 30+ yrs I watched him. He was a classy gentleman in and out of the ring. Some say he had an enormous ego behind the scenes but I’m speaking as a fan of the business and I have never seen anything but class from him. the original Tiger Mask, has described Máscaras’ impact on Japanese professional wrestling, “If it weren’t for Mil Mascaras, there would be no Jushin Liger, no Último Dragón or the Great Sasuke today,”. Mascaras’ success in the U.S. also paved the way for other luchadores such as Rey Mysterio, Jr., who has become one of the most popular luchadores in US wrestling history.

One other thing that made him stand out in the wring was the fact that he rarely ever spoke a word. There were no flashy promos, no long interviews, no bad mouthing others—–he just went in the ring and did his thing. He didn’t need all the intimidation factors given by those who scream and holler at the mic—his presence in the ring alone was intimidation enough. He brought fear into the eyes of all his opponents with his sole presence. The other thing that I admire about him was his vast array of masks. Known as the man of 1000 masks, he always came to the ring sporting a different one before unmasking into the Original Mil Mascaras classic mask. He kept his privacy until his death and even outside the ring was never seen without his mask.

So there you have it. This Boston kid of mixed ethnic background had a hero who was Mexican, who made me dream of going to Lucha Libre school and learning how to become a Luchador. At six foot five inches tall and nearly three hundred pounds I doubt that I ever would have mastered his high flying moves, but as a pro wrestling manager I still dream of maybe someday managing the next great Lucha Libre star! If you think that you have what it takes to become a Luchador be the next Mil Mascaras then I highly recommend the Pro Wrestling Lucha Libre school in Florida.

Part 2 of my article will be about how the greatest manager in my opinion of all time—the Grand Wizard of wrestling—influenced my decision to be a manager. But if it weren’t for Mil mascaras, I probably wouldn’t have the interest I have in the sport today. And for this I thank him. He gave a little boy a super hero to look up to. A standard of goodness and purity in a wrestling world of evil. He is the living breathing definition of legend.

A Letter from Leroy Jenkins

August 8, 2013

There is something that Professional Wrestling Manager Leroy Jenkins would like for you to know. Actually, I remember it like it was yesterday. During my childhood I didn’t have many friends but I had my grandfather. And we used to spend Saturday mornings eating cereal together and watching cartoons. When noon came around we always turned on channel 12 and for 2 hrs we would escape into the world of professional wrestling. We had our favorites of course—Dominick Denucci, Bobo Brazil and of course Bruno Sammartino—and we had the ones we villified—Superstar Billy Graham, Baron Scicluna, George Steele—–but no matter who was on I was always enthralled. I remember telling grandpa Joe “That’s gonna be me someday. I’m gonna be in that ring.” He always encouraged me but deep in his heart I knew he thought it was a moot point and i would always be just a fan.

You might not know this from watching me on the Pro Wrestling Fit International TV Show but,I have Aspergers Syndrome—a disorder that doesnt allow me to mature at the same rate as most “normal” people. I’ve been different since I was a kid and I will remain different til the day I die. Thats why I am forever grateful to Rick Love and Kevin Rhodes of CWFL who saw the passion in the silly 44 yr old “12 yr old” And gave me the chance to fulfill my childhood dreams.

Fast forward to the present. Whenever Leroy Jenkins comes to the ringside for Pro Wrestling Fit I always am reminded of Grandpa’s dying statement to me—“When we forget childhood memories and dreams we are an angry adult—but when we give up on those same dreams we are nothing but an immature brat.” The little kid inside of me comes out in every instance that Ed Couture keeps his life in the backstage area and Leroy Jenkins puts on a show.

Championship Wrestling from Florida is an incredible opportunity for wrestlers, managers, and fans alike to experience what “real wrestling” is all about. We have wrestlers of all shapes, sizes, an styles. We have legends of the past like Randy Starr, Tony Mulkey, and Redd Alert. We have up and coming superstars like Justin Cage, Moco Loco, and Lucas Taylor. We have super heavy weights, we have lightweights. Whatever your cup of tea you are sure to find it at EVERY CWFL show and in the ring at the PWF pro wrestling training center here in Florida.

But what we mostly have is a group of passionate individuals who’s main objective is to give every wrestling fan in Florida an experience they will always remember —and every kid out there a chance to live the dream the way I have.

For all you who are interested in fulfillling your dream of being a professional wrestler, manager, or referree—they have a training facility on site and you can be trained by experts who have many years in the business.

In closing I want to say that PWF has given this silly big kid a chance and taken him under their wing and making him feel like a true man and a professional performer. For that I am forever grateful. That is why I am very proud to be a part of this company. I hope that you will take the time to say hello to me in person at one of the live events, listen to me on the PWF Radio Show or even come hang out with me at the After Party at Gator’s Dockside in Ocoee where me and the rest of the guys from the TV Show like to hang out at night.  Look me up on facebook and don’t forget to Like our page at http://www.facebook.com/PWFInternational

Pro Wrestling Fit Presents: NightStalker!

He is 5’10”, 230 pounds of pure insanity and mayhem in the Pro Wrestling ring. He has lived a tortured life full of hurt and pain that most people could not begin to understand.

Now he releases his anger into the world of pro wrestling. He carefully stalks his opponents, watching and waiting before he rips his opponent’s souls from their bodies and leaves them broken and empty.

He lives in darkness and seclusion. He has no friends and no desire to make any. Most individuals look at him in bewilderment trying to figure him out, but, as they all eventually find out, there is no answer to his madness and insanity.

His name is feared by many in the professional wrestling business. He is known as NightStalker!

He entered into the business in 1999 with South Eastern Championship Wrestling where he began his training and later debuted on their TV show. It was in May 2000 with South Eastern Championship Wrestling on channel 98, a product of Time Warner Communications.

Night Stalker easily annihilated and massacred his competition; destroying the entire South Eastern Championship Wrestling roster.

He began stalking new competition, wanting more he journeyed into Mid-Florida Wrestling in February 2002 where he quickly made his name known. NightStalker became the Mid-Florida Wrestling Hardcore Champion 4-times and the Mid-Florida Wrestling Champion 2-times.

Other wrestling promotions include Championship Florida Wrestling, Southern Championship Wrestling, Future Stars of Professional Wrestling, Atlantic Championship Wrestling, Future of Wrestling, South Lake Pro Wrestling, Pro Wrestling Xtreme just to name a few.

Leroy SnowJenkins, Professional Wrestling Manager

This week Bobbi interviews Leroy Snowball Jenkins. The war of words between the two greatest managers in Florida cannot be missed! Plus we will be taking your calls.

Hear Rick Love’s comments and criticisms about the state of Pro Wrestling today.

This show is sponsored by: Legacy Championship Belts www.LegacyBelts.com

The Midnight Mafia and Leroy Jenkins are on a quest to dominate the Professional Wrestling industry.

Leroy Jenkins and Curse at Pro Wrestling Fit Florida.

Boston-born Leroy “Snowball” Jenkins comes from a long line of self-professed gangsters. His family legacy was built on their fifty years in the business of pro wrestling. Just four short years ago Leroy decided to carry on his family’s gangster legacy by entering an industry his family made famous. Trained by his daddy and granddaddy before him, Leroy got his start working some of the independent federations in Florida where he moved the daily operations of the Midnight Mafia, his stable of wrestlers, to permanently.

Leroy’s plan is to be the future of the business and a dominating force in Pro Wrestling Fit and any other federation that he chooses. For Leroy Jenkins professional wrestling is about family economics. He knows that everyone he manages will go to the top because he only manages the finest talent and when his guys win, he makes more money. Leroy’s favorite quote is “Win if you can. Lose if you must. But ALWAYS cheat!”

The Hardcore Icon NightStalker with Leroy Jenkins.

He is gracious to wrestlers like Justin Cage who trained him, and promoters like Rick Love and Kevin Rhodes, among others who have given him exposure. But now the game is all about him, and this gangster is shooting straight to the top of Pro Wrestling Fit CWFL. Leroy’s pride and joy, Curse, is the number one contender for the vacant PWF CWFL Heavyweight Title. His latest acquisition NightStalker is blazing his way into PWF like a star. This is why Leroy Jenkins is quickly becoming one of the most sought after talent Managers in all of Florida independent wrestling.

His current talent war with Bobbi Maracai started when she somehow managed to get Justin Cage, a long-time friend of Leroy’s, to join her stable of wrestlers. Bobbi Maracai’s legal team has requested that PWF look into Leroy’s use of a walking cane. They claim that a search of his medical files shows no legitimate injury that would require it and that he only uses it as a weapon that creates a public danger to the wrestlers and the fans. No-one can say how this fued got started for sure but we are sure that this battle of managers will not end peacefully.

Welcome to the official site of the Pro Wrestling Fit (PWF) International TV Show, Radio Show and Online Magazine. Be sure to save this site to your favorites and check back often.

A special message from PWF International C.E.O. Rick Love.

Hello Pro Wrestling Fans!

As the C.E.O. of PWF International I want to share with you our vision for the future of Professional Wrestling. At PWF we plan to bring sportsmanship and dignity back to our beloved sport. For years we have been hearing from fans how disgusted they are with the late night garbage that has become all too common in our sport.

You spoke, and we have listened. We are currently searching the globe for the finest pro wrestling talent available to bring you a show that you will enjoy in a format that we can be proud of. We are using four main systems of development to achieve this goal.

System One: Talent Development through our very own Pro Wrestling School In Orlando, Florida. This will allow us to develop fine athletes into the top stars of the future be making sure that they are trained the right way under the watchful eyes of our current PWF Champions. If you would like to find out how you can join our Pro Wrestling School call Kevin Rhodes at Ph: 321-239-5439 today!

System Two: Active recruitment of professional wrestlers. We do this by having our champions and managers watch for exceptional talent at non-PWF shows that they work on. Many indy wrestling promotions often book our wrestlers to work on their shows because they understand the benefits of having one of their wrestlers recruited by our show. It gives them instant credibility as a developmental company who’s wrestlers do get to travel to work at other shows. If you are a professional wrestling promoter who would like to have PWF Talent on your shows contact us at http://www.facebook.com/pwfinternational .

System Three: Pre Show Audition Matches, sometimes called “Dark Matches”. This is where professional wrestlers from other companies travel to our show to perform a match during our pre-show autograph party and get judged by our committee for the opportunity of becoming a member of our active roster. If you are a professional wrestler who would like to schedule an audition match contact Kevin Rhodes at Ph: 321-239-5439 today!

System Four: The fourth way that you can apply to become a member of the PWF Roster is by submitting a professional quality Promo Video. To do this you simply click to like our fanpage listed above and then add your promo video youtube link to our wall for our staff to review for consideration.  To see samples of what we consider professional quality promo videos visit our channel at www.youtube.com/prowrestlingfitmedia

Sincerely,

Richard “Rick” Love
