What Champions are Made of

August 21, 2014

Everybody’s goal in the wrestling business is to become world champion. Whether you are in a big time federation or just a fledgling independent or a strong rising federation like PWF/Zero1 being a champion is an ultimate goal—in the next few months I am going to be writing articles on the history of Wrestling world Champions, starting this month with the original NWA.

It all started wth a man named Frank Sexton. “The Sedalis Cyclone” was a staple in the American Wrestling Association, and numerous times held its world championship belt, before unifying it with the NWA championship. 2 months later he lost it to a man named Orville Browne who for over a year held onto the prestigious title until a car accident forced him into retirement. The man who then became champion is the subject of my article today—–the great Lou Thesz

Aloysius Martin “Lou” Thesz was the greatest NWA champion of all time. After being trained as a child for numerous years he made his debut in 1932 and almost immediately caught the eye of the great Ed Strangler Lewis. After training with him for many years he became one of the biggest stars in that time in the St Louis area

In 1948 the National wrestling alliance was formed. The first scheduled title match was between Orville Brown and Lou but Orville had the car accident and thus Lou Thesz began a 7 yr run of greatness unifying all the local world chamopionships into the World heavyweight cham pionship.

He has been inducted in numerous hall of fames and held 16 different world titles as well as having the most years as a NWA World heavyweight Champion. He was known to have numerous 60 minute, 90 minute, even 120 minute matches and come back the next night and wrestle.

He was a master of the scientific art of wrestling and was probably the greatest “hooker” (submission wrestler) of all time. His style transcends generations and is shown by beating people of all shapes andf sizes in his run. Without his influences we wouldnt have had wrestlers like Jack and Jerry Brisco, The funk brothers, Ric Flair, and many others. Arguably one of the greatest and most used finishes in wrestling today, The STF was invented by him. In this generations people like Daniel Bryan, John Cena, and even the late Chris Benoit, used it as their finishers of choice.

He also showed his longevity by becoming the only wrestler to wrestle in 7 decades when he wrestled his protege Masahiro Chono in 1990 at the ripe young age of 74! He is truly a legends legend and one of the wrestlers all modern day wrestlers should model themselves after.

Pro Wrestling Manager The Grand Wizard

November 20, 2013

Pro Wrestling Fit USA Manager Leroy Jenkins brings you another educational article sharing his many years of pro wrestling knowledge. Please feel free to comment and share this link with your friends. We always love to hear from our readers and share their opinions in the comments section.

Younger wrestling fans might not be familiar with this man but the Grand Wizard of Wrestling (Abdullah Farouk) was a pioneer in the professional wrestling world.  The manager of champions was one of the triad of managers in the 70s that dominated the World Wide Wrestling Federation.  Unlike other managers however he did it using only his brain and his words, as he was not the most imposing specimen of a man physically—–yet still always found ways to interfere in matches his men were involved in.

Here is a list of just some of the men that the grand wizard has led to greatness:

1)  Stan “the Man” Stasiak.   The man known for the heart punch was a rough rugged rawbone wrestler who won the world title in 1973

2)  Professor Toru Tanaka and Mr Fuji.  The first WWWF  title held by the grand wizard was with the dastardly men from the orient.

3)  Superstar Billy Graham.  This was probably the greatest success the Grand Wizard had.  Superstar graham was a pioneer for the flamboyant wrestling styles seen today.  He held the title for over a year domingating the talent in the mid to late 70s

4)  Pat Patterson.  He managed the first intercontinental champion.  This was the final belt the Grand Wizard had in his stable

The Grand Wizard was a master of the insulting promo.  He could draw heat in a matter of seconds bedhind a microphone.  Here is an example of him at his finest—-

From a personal standpoint I hated the Grand Wizard of Wrestling.  I would however turn in every single week just because I hated him and wanted to always see him get his comeuppance.   Which means he was as good at his job as  anyone.  I personally modeled myself in the business after his character, wanting to be known more for what I say and how the crowd reacts to me than my physical prowess.  Ernie Roth in my opinion should be the model all managers should be after.  I remember crying watching Superstar Graham defeating my hero Bruno Sammartino to the point i wanted to quit watching wrestling forever.  But something about Ernie’s hypnotic way kept me watching week after week


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


Professional Wrestler Curse

March 30, 2013

Click here to listen to the latest episode —>>> PWF Radio Show is CURSE’D!

This week Bobbi Maracai interviews Curse of the Midnight Mafia and discusses his plans for Championship Gold. Hear the caos as Latin Fury attacks Leroy Jenkins in the studio. Rick Love talks about the growth of PWF USA and some of the exciting things coming for Pro Wrestling Fit fans.

Curse

Height-6’8

Weight-281lbs

From-Badlands, South Dakota, now making his home in Orlando, Florida

This mystery man known as the 6’8 walking disaster area the dark tower of power Curse has arrived in Pro Wrestling Fit for two reasons, to finally become the heavyweight champion of the world, and to settle a score with an old enemy that he refuses to name or talk about at this time. Having no alliances, friendships, or managers, Curse stands alone and always takes the most sadistic route to victory within the squared circle. A dark shadow has fallen over PWF, and its name is Curse!

From the badlands of South Dakota, far beyond the confines of civilization comes a new threat to the roster of Pro Wrestling Fit USA. Standing at six feet eight inches tall and 281lbs of destruction, comes the dark tower of power, the walking disaster area known only as Curse. This living monolith has cut his teeth all over the globe since dominating the world of Professional Wrestling and has now set his sights on championship gold here in Pro Wrestling Fit.

Little is known about his life away from the ring although he has made it very clear that he has a deep rooted hatred for a current Champion in the PWF family and is waiting to exact his revenge. Although he has been vague about this quest for vengeance what is obvious is this level of hatred can only be of a personal nature. Recently, recruiting manager Leroy Jenkins to help him secure his shot at the title and with it his burning desire for revenge. While he has not stated who this person is the rumors in the locker room is that Curse feels betrayed by this individual. Some believe they broke into the business together and while this person went on to become a Champion, Curse was left to rot in the concrete jungles and barbwire nightmares of other organizations of the far northeast, miles away from the Professional Wrestling territories in Florida. Having newly aligned himself with the Palace of Pain the sky truly is the limit for both Curse and Mr. Jenkins, a deadly combination of ruthless aggression and unstoppable power. Curse no doubt will find himself right at home with the pain, fear, and intimidation the Palace has become infamous for dishing out.
