Who's Who in the Upper Midwest

You can look through the whole list, or use the search tool in the Menu bar to the left (which will actually search the entire site, including all of the UMWNs).

New FLWA Tag Team Champs [07/16/01]
After defending the MIW TV Title on Sat. against the Hater, I teamed up with Scotty Zappa on Sun. to win the FLWA Tag Team Championship from the team of Buck "Rock n' Roll" Zumhofe and "Sodbuster" Kenny Jay.

After winning the straps, Scotty announced that we would immediately defend the titles against the number one contenders. After FLWA commissioner Mike Murdoch gave it the okay, Scotty announced that the number one contenders were the High Rollers. They entered the ring, and we laid down so they could get the 1-2-3.

If you see me driving around in a brand-new car, you'll know why I did it...

J.B. and Me [07/07/01]
Wrestled J.B. Trask in singles competition last Tue. As you can read in the 05/21 entry below, it's been something I want to do. Wasn't my best match, but I think it will be better if we go against each other again.

Finally added July's calendar. I haven't been keeping up with it because they're a pain to do. You should all be getting Tim Larson's UMWN newsletter anyway.

Blame Canada [01/30/01]
A group of us went up to the Great White North last weekend to wrestle in the Winnipeg Convention center in Winnipeg, CAN. We worked for the IWA and booker Don Callis (a.k.a. Cyrus). All I have to say is it's good to be back... The group consisted of Sheriff Johnny Emerald, Shifty, Mitch Paradise, Charlie Norris, Mike & Robby Thunder, Ian & Ashley Xavier, Big Daddy Hoofer, Playboy Pete Huge, Lacey, Black Stallion, Austin Aries, and Helmut Von Strauss.

The Grumpy's show is this weekend.
