We are excited to announce that number 34 in the MWR Trading card series is one of the most entertaining wrestlers to step into the wrestling ring.

Fans around the world know him as U-Gene a former WWE Superstar that has brought laughter and excitement in his matches.

In 2004 U-gene burst onto the scene Eric Bischoff’s cousin who wanted to be a wrestler much to Bischoff’s chagrin. In an attempt to force U-Gene to quit wrestling, Bischoff assigned William Regal to watch over U-Gene and convince him to quit.

U-gene would find help from none other than that Rock, and a misguided attempt to aligned himself with Triple H and Evolution.

Evolution would show their true colors with Triple H getting the upper hand in their fued. Eugene would focus his attention on “Uncle” Eric in a hair vs. hair match, humiliating Bishoff.

A carer highlight came when he would team up with Williams Regal to win the WWE Tag Team Titles.

A fued with Kurt Angle in “the Kurt Angle Invitational” to win his gold medal.

Now fans of the lovable and fun U-Gene has a chance to own U-Gene’s very own MWR Trading Card for yourself.

The artwork of  U-Gene Dinsmore is from the hottest comic in the Midwest, The Promotion. The Promotion is drawn from none other than Rob Schamberger.

March 16th: Former WWE Superstar (Smackdown’s Scotty Goldman) and international wrestling star “Classic” Colt Cabana comes to IWAU and will no doubt entertain the fans like no other. He brings a level of talent the likes that IWAU fans or wrestlers have not seen before.

March 23rd: Worldwide wrestling phenomenon, Ricochet will fly by (pun completely intended). Ricochet is one of the most entertaining high flyers in the wrestling industry today and is a world class athlete. Right now, he is on his second tour of Japan. He will surely be looking to compete with the best of the best.

April 9th: Speaking of “the best of the best”, a man who many fans, critics and wrestlers alike view as “The Best in the World” will make his debut for IWAU. That man is none other than the “American Wolf” himself, Davey Richards. Much like our other guests, Davey will undoubtedly be looking to compete with the best IWAU has to offer.

April 13th: The highly entertaining and incomparable Chuck Taylor will make his way to Olney for action in an IWAU ring as well. Chuck, like many of our other guests, has wrestled for many of the top promotions in the United States but has also wrestled in Japan. The man known as “Sexy Chuckie T” will bring a level of comedy and skill that some of our other guests can’t provide.

Big things are in store for our fans and our wrestlers in IWAU. In the upcoming weeks and months, the announcements of what these amazing, one of a kind performers will be doing when the come to Olney will be announced.

Tony Kozina takes on NWA WORLD Jr. Heavyweight Champion Craig Classic at NWA Supreme on Febuary 5th. Who is Craig Classic?

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 19, 2011

We know very well who Tony Kozina is in the Midwest. Kozina is a man who is able to deliver a four star match night in and night out. We have seen proof of that in every match he has been in this past year.

A former NWA JR Champion himself, we were thrilled to have Kozina take part of our MWR Trading card set that is filled with many of the top stars in the world of pro wrestling today.

You can catch Kozina in action when he will be given another chance at the Championship during NWA Supreme’s Night of Champions the first of next month.

Who is currently the champ?      Craig Classic.

You may ask yourself who Craig Classic is but thanks to Norine Stice at Carnage Chronicles we are able to find out that one of the best is about to set foot in the Midwest.

10 Questions With…Craig Classic

By Norine Stice

Recently someone asked me how much I knew about Craig Classic. I knew the name, I’d watched a match or two of his on YouTube, but as far as how he got to where he is now, I had no clue. It was time to ask questions. I tracked down Craig, current holder of not one but two title belts, and requested an interview. He took time out of his busy schedule to comply and here he is…

1). How did you decide on the ring name of Craig Classic?

Response: I was training in Japan with head trainer in the BJW dojo named Daisuke Sekimoto. And he said that I am a classic wrestler with my style. So I decided to use it. Since it is a style I enjoy.

2. What or who influenced you to make the decision to become a professional wrestler?

Response: Biggest influence for me was Dynamite Kid, and all the Jr stars from the early 90’s in Japan. Chris Benoit, Dean Malenko, Jushin Liger, etc

3. Where did you receive your wrestling training and when did you make your official debut?

For the rest of the 10 questions from Norine to Craig Classic click here.
