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

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.

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.
