WCWF Roster

Wrestlers, tag teams, stables, managers/valets, and other on-screen personalities of the past and present. Only select wrestlers from 1983 or earlier are included.

Stroker Ace
Hailing From: Waycross, GA Ht: 6'1" Wt: 247 lbs
Signature Moves: Ace Crusher (innovated), Pit Stop (slingshot kneedrop)
Intro Music: "Stroker's Theme" by The Charlie Daniels Band
Nicknames: none

Affiliation:

none
Titles Held: none
Years Active: WCWF, 1983-present; 1978-present, career
Real World Analogy: Magnum T.A. doing a Burt Reynolds impersonation
Profile: After spending his early career under a different ring name playing up his resemblance to Tom Selleck, Stroker Ace got his big break when he was signed by WCWF to capitalize on the popularity of another mustachioed hearthrob: Burt Reynolds. His gimmick is a that of cocky ladies man and Georgia race car driver, inspired by the movie he takes his name from. The fans found this amusing at first, but began to tire of it leading to Stroker's recent heel turn.

 

The Ayatollah
Hailing From: Tehran, Iran Ht: 6'0" Wt: 250 lbs
Signature Moves: Camel Clutch
Intro Music: Iranian National Anthem
Nicknames: The Terror From Tehran

Real World Analogy: The Iron Sheik
Profile: Former Olympic wrestler from Iran. Dominated WCWF in the early 1980s with a 1,428-day World Title reign - the second-longest in WCWF history. He drove most of the "old guard" from the 1960s and 1970s out of the company during his "reign of terror." He remains a force to be reckoned with.

 

Chad Too Badd
Hailing From: Asheville, NC Ht: 6'0" Wt: 240 lbs
Signature Moves: Badd Times (jumping DDT)
Intro Music: “Bad To The Bone” by George Thorogood

Years Active: 1982-present
Real World Analogy: Chad 2 Badd, Karl Anderson's character on Southpaw Regional Wrestling

Affiliation:

none
Titles Held: WCWF United States Title
Years Active: WCWF, 1982-present; career: 1975-present)
Real World Analogy: Bruiser Brody + Dick Murdoch
Profile: A big, bearded brawler from rural Texas. An star athelete in high school, he was an indifferent student and barely had the grades for an athletic scholarship. He took up wrestling after he was kicked off his college football team for being too rough with his teammates in practice. His toughness and wild brawls quickly made him a fan favorite in the Texas territories and Puerto Rico. Barton's only title reign thusfar ended in a famously bloody cage match against fellow Texan Jake Blackheart. Barton seems slightly subdued in 1984 and rumor has it WCWF management has tried to reign him in in a bit. Sooner or later, more canrage will ensue.

 

Eddie Bearden
Hailing From: Harlem, NY Ht: 6'5" Wt: 303 lbs
Signature Moves: Bad Attitude (double underhook faceslam), Ghetto Blaster (enziguri)
Intro Music: "Leroy Brown" by Jim Croce

Titles Held: WCWF United States Title, WCWF Wold Tag Team Titles (w/ Roy Blackheart)
Years Active: WCWF, 1971-present; career, 1967-present
Real World Analogy: Blackjack Mulligan
Profile: A surly Texan, Jake Blackheart came to WCWF with his "cousin" Roy as a heel tag team. After Roy left, Jake stuck around as a singles wrestler, with limited success. He feuded several times over the US Title, but so far has only managed one brief reign after a big feud with fellow Texas brawler Bruiser Barton. He's a solid hand as a midcard heel. His son, John, is reportedly training to follow in his father's footsteps.

 

Jimmy Blast

Signature Moves: Gourdbuster, Spinebuster, Figure Four
Intro Music: "Crazy Train" by Ozzy Osbourne

Affiliation:

none
Titles Held: WCWF United States Title
Years Active: WCWF, 1982-present; career, 1980-present
Real World Analogy: Arn Anderson (loosely, with elements of Ric Flair and other Horsemen)
Profile: Jimmy Blast hails from the Midwest, but wrestles more of a Southern style. He can brawl when he has to and packs some of the nastiest chops in the business, but he prefers to wrestle patient, technical matches. Blast started out in the Mid-Atlantic indys, but was soon snatched up WCWF who recognized him as prodigy. He's got all the tools inside the ropes any wrestler could ask for. If he can hone his personality and mic skills he should be one of the greatest wrestlers of all time.

Profile: An articulate ring technician, Bockwinkel came to WCWF when it acquired AWA in 1978 and feuded with David Runner over who was the real world champion. He retired after losing a feud with The Ayatollah that resulted in some excellent matches. Rumor has it that he's considering returning to wrestling as a manager.

Intro Music: "You Spin Me Round" by Dead or Alive

Affiliation:

none
Titles Held: none
Years Active: ???
Real World Analogy: none
Profile: The best way to describe him is probably "loveable oaf." His in-ring skills have a so-bad-it's-good quality to them. He's got a fu manchu, a mullet, and a unique charisma.

Affiliation:

none

Years Active: WCWF, 1973-present (intermittently); career, 1964-present
Real World Analogy: Andre The Giant (with better health)
Profile: The gentle giant of WCWF (unless you make him angry), Jolly is a beloved special attraction. He started his career as Giant Max (the name he still wrestles under in Japan), but Green Giant foods approached him with a corporate sponsorship deal. Thus he became the loveable Jolly Green Giant (complete with a leafy green singlet) who reminds children to eat their vegetables so they grown up strong. He even does commercials and became the star of a Saturday morning cartoon. In addtion to his wholesome character, he's also particularly notable for having never been pinned, submitted, or slammed in WCWF.

Years Active: WCWF, 1975-1981; career, 1969-1983
Real World Analogy: Superstar Billy Graham
Profile: Former bodybuiler with bleach-blond hair and an impressive but artificial physique that included 22" biceps. He was a colorful character particularly memorable for his frequent use of the word "brother" in promos. After a career as a heel, Golden's manager turned on him when he lost the World Title to David Runner. He was one of the earliest wrestlers to try (and fail) to end The Ayatollah's "Reign of Terror." After that defeat, Golden wrestled in Japan before retiring in 1983 due to heart problems caused by his steroid and cocaine use. He is now living clean and sober, and runs a karate dojo.

Real World Analogy: Verne Gagne
Profile:

A popular technician in the Midwest territories in the 1950s. Greene broke away from the NWA by founding the AWA in 1960. Verne kept himself on top of the AWA through the 1960s and remained stubbornly dedicated to pushing mat-based wrestlers even as WCWF began to dominate with a flashier product, both in terms of matches and production quality. After WCWF bought AWA in 1978, Greene mostly teamed with his son, Greg, and the duo even won the tag titles. Verne Greene's final match was a loss to The Ayatollah in Minneapolis. Greg Greene didn't last long in WCWF after his father's retirement.

Profile: The Baron started his career in Germany as a skilled technical wrestler who had trouble connecting with the fans. Frustrated, he quit wrestling and served five years in the French Foreign Legion. He returned a changed man. Von Kaiser's calm demeanor and frank honesty belies his willingness to do anything it takes to win. Rumor has it he once deliberatly popped an opponent's eye out of its socket! In WCWF, Baron Von Kaiser has thusfar been part of a tag team with Markus Von Krupp, a fellow German, but the future may hold bigger things for him.

Titles Held: WCWF World Heavyweight Title (2)
Years Active: 1959-1980

He had two reigns as WCWF World Heavyweight Champion, the first lasting nearly 8 years and the second more than 3 years. He was the first major challenger (and victim) in The Ayatollah's "reign of terror".

Titles Held: WCWF United States Title, WCWF World Tag Team Titles (w/ Tony Ferrari)
Years Active: 1973-present
Real World Analogy: Salvatore Bellomo (loosely) and filling the role of Larry Zybysko
Profile: Massimo immigrated with his family late in chilhood, and got into a lot of trouble as a teenager in New York's Little Italy that earned him his nickname ("Mean"). Not academicly inclined nor athletically gifted, what he did have was an incredible drive and work ethic (and a fierce pride in his Italian heritage). If not for wrestling, he might have ended up an enforcer for the Italian Mafia. Instead, inspired by Mario Mancini, Massimo worked hard to become a wrestler and made his way way up the card through the 1970s. Mancini became a mentor, both kayfabe and real life. Rumor has it he was going to turn on his mentor, setting up a huge main event for Showdown at Shea 1980. Plans changed due to The Ayatollah's Reign of Terror. Massimo got several World Title matches with The Ayatollah, but he could never quite manage to win. Although he remains incredibly popular in the northeast as chosen heir to the Mancini legacy, Massimo feels his career has stalled and privately wonders what it will take to get him to the top.

After losing a bitter feud to The Ayatollah, he disappeared for awhile before returning as Corporal Punishment, claiming he had been reduced in rank because of his failure to defeat America's mortal enemy. He had returned to punish WCWF's roster for being so weak that nobody else could beat The Ayatollah either. He's been a bully heel ever since.

Real World Analogy: Rick Rude + Lex Luger
Profile: Chris Reese may be the most inveterate, shameless, unapologetic narcisist in the history of pro wrestling, and that's saying something. He loves to tape vignettes clad only in a speedo, flaunting his six-pack abs and fantastic physique. He boasts his appearance is all-natural, the product of superior genetics and exercise, but fans think he doth protest too much. Whatever the truth, he can back up his big mouth and bigger ego with some flashy moves in the ring.

Hailing From: Austin, TX Ht: 6'2" Wt: 275 lbs
Signature Moves: American Elbow (elbowsmash to the top of the head)
Nicknames: "The American Dream"
Titles Held: NWA Midwest Tag Team Titles, NWA Florida Heavyweight Title (6)
Years Active: 1967-1978, with sporadic appearances until 1981 (career entirely outside WCWF)
Real World Analogy: Dusty Rhodes
Profile: Despite his poor physique and lisp, "The American Dream" Virgil Riley was getting very popular in Florida in the 1970s as a working class hero. In 1977, he became majority owner of the Gainesville-based Sonny's BBQ, renaming it Daddy-O's House of Ribs and introducing the motto "Finga-lickin' good food, beh-beh!" He continued to wrestle sporadically in the years immediately after the purchase, but has now retired completely to focus on his growing business.

 

Randy Robinson
Hailing From: Long Beach, California Ht: 6'4" Wt: 265 lbs
Signature Moves: Ram Jam (diving headbutt, with theatrics)
Intro Music: “Metal Health” by Quiet Riot
Nicknames: The Ram

Affiliation:

none
Titles Held: WCWF World Heavyweight Title
Years Active: 1983-present (WCWF); 1977-present (career)
Real World Analogy: Mickey Rourke's character from "The Wrestler"
Profile: Randy came from a working-class background in New Jersey, something he plays up in his promos but somewhat resents in real life. When he turned 18, left behind his given name (Robin Ramzinski) and hitchiked to Southern California to make a new life for himself. Robinson used his size to be a bouncer and bodyguard. He got his nickname when he used a headbutt to knock a guy out in a bar fight (alledgedly while wearing a Los Angeles Rams jersey). Robinson trained as a boxer before turning to wrestling. When WCWF acquired the Midwest territory he was working for, it brought "The Ram" home to the New York City area. There he finally did the seemingly impossible by ending The Ayatollah's "reign of terror."

 

David Runner
Hailing From: Kansas City, MO Ht: 6'1" Wt: 250 lbs
Signature Moves: Runner's Knee (running high knee strike)
Intro Music: "Green Grass and High Tides" by The Outlaws
Nicknames: Dashing (early in his career)

Affiliation:

none
Titles Held: WCWF World Heavyweight Title, NWA World Heavyweight Title
Years Active: 1960-present (career); 1977-1981 (WCWF)
Real World Analogy: Harley Race
Profile: Cocky heel with a gravelly voice and best known for his time in the NWA territories where he is still active. He had a memorable run with WCWF in the late 70s and early 80s when he feuded with Mario Mancini, Billy Golden, and The Jolly Green Giant. He turned face to feud with The Ayatollah, leaving WCWF after being defeated.

 

Sol Salamanca
Hailing From: Toluca, Mexico Ht: 6'1" Wt: 238 lbs
Signature Moves: Toluca Sunrise (flying European uppercut), Toluca Sunset (crossface)
Intro Music:  
Nicknames: none

Affiliation:

none
Titles Held: none
Years Active: Mexico, 1981-1983; WCWF, 1983-present
Real World Analogy: none
Profile: A young, humble, hard-working Mexican wrestler, Salmanca's childhood hero was Pedro Gonzalez. Sol was inspired by a Hispanic wrestler becoming a world champion in America. Rather than taking up a mask as most luchadores do, Salmanca wrestled openly as himself. While he rarely one, his determination and the tremendous pride he took in his in-ring performance helped him stand out. He got signed by WCWF in the wake of Gonzalez's career-ending injury and quickly became comfortable with American wrestling. He has a promising future.

 

Rick Samson
Hailing From: St. Paul, MN Ht: 6'0" Wt: 257 lbs
Signature Moves: Body Vice (Canadian backbreaker), Body Crush (front slam)
Intro Music: "Holding Out For A Hero" by Bonnie Tyler
Nicknames: "Strongman"

Affiliation:

none
Titles Held: WCWF United States Title, WCWF TV Title
Years Active: WCWF, 1979-present; career, 1974-present
Real World Analogy: none directly; elements of Jesse Ventura and Ken Patera, and looks like a stockier Rick Rude
Profile: A former bodybuilder, he started his career in the territories as "Strongman Samson" doing an old-fashioned circus strongman gimmick with feats of strength and handlebar mustache. He proved more capable in the ring than most bodybuilders and weightlifters, although he's certainly no technician. By the time he got to WCWF he had ditched most of the cartoonish elements of his gimmick, although he still wears a singlet. He's always been a heroic figure, never a bully.

 

Carl Stevens
Hailing From: San Francisco, CA Ht: 5'8" Wt: 235 lbs
Signature Moves: Bombs Away (diving kneedrop, sometimes to his opponent's throat)
Nicknames: "Crippler", "The Blond Bomber"

Affiliation:

none - formerly The Ringmasters (w/ Rocky Bockwinkel) and The Painbringers (w/ Johnny Valentine)
Titles Held: WCWF World Tag Team Titles (w/ Valentine), AWA World Tag Team Titles (3 w/ Bockwinkel)
Years Active: AWA 1971-1975 & WCWF 1975-1982 (career, 1950-1982)
Real World Analogy: Ray Stevens
Profile:

Stevens started wrestling as a teenager and spent most of his early career in Big Time Wrestling and other Pacific Coast territories. Starting as a cocky heel, he evolved into a sadistic technician who took more pleasure in hurting his opponents than winning. He had an impressive run in AWA teaming with Rocky Bockwinkel, who provided a eliquent partner to Stevens' cold viciousness. After the end of his third reign with Bockwinkel, Stevens jumped to WCWF where he formed a successful team with a young Johnny "Bloody" Valentine. Feeling the physical toll from many injuries and recognizing the trend toward larger wrestlers, "Crippler" Stevens retired in 1982 after a Hall-of-Fame-worthy career.

Years Active: wrestler, 1958-1981; manager, 1983-present
Real World Analogy: none
Profile: Stryker spent much of his career with a military gimmick. He started as a sadistic heel and briefly held the World Title as a transitional champion. He later turned face and that's how most fans remember him. Now in his 50s with bad knees, he walks with a cane and provides guidance for his much larger but inexperienced son, Carl.

Stan Trump
Hailing From: New York City Ht: 6'3" Wt: 260 lbs
Signature Moves: Million Dollar Dream (cobra clutch), Million Dollar Knee (high knee)
Intro Music: "Money" by Pink Floyd
Nicknames: "Million Dollar Stan"

Affiliation:

manages Isileli Kaelo
Titles Held: none yet
Years Active: WCWF, 1983-present; career, 1974-present
Real World Analogy: "Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase
Profile: A second-generation wrestler, Theodore Stanley Ironside's father died in the ring of a heart attack when Stan was 15. He took up wrestling after an injury ended his college sports career, originally wrestling as "Ted Ironside" in the Mid-South territory - a smiling face continuing his father's legacy. In 1980, he reinvented himself as a sleezy and egotistical businessman Stan Trump, modeled off real estate mogul Donald Trump. Donald's purchase of the USFL's New Jersey Generals brought him enough national attention that Stan got signed by WCWF. "Million Dollar Stan" is as dishonest and underhanded as they come. He's willing to cheat, steal, bribe, or manipulate anyone to further his own goals. After Randy Robinson finally ended The Ayatollah's Reign of Terror, the first thing Stan did was try to buy the belt! While he likes to use other wrestlers as pawns against his rivals, Stan Trump is no pushover in the ring. Sooner or later he will acquire a championship - the only question is when and how (price is no object).
