STATE OF THE UNION #7 – UIPW News for 03 Sept 2007

BIG CHANGES TO THE LINE-UP FOR “BORN AGAIN”

With just days to go before the UNION’s debut event in Toronto, AUSTIN SHAW, the UIPW Head of Fighters Affairs, was reminded of just how true the phrase “Card subject to change” can be when he received some bad news from several of its Workers.   First, CHRIS KOLE had to cancel his appearance at BORN AGAIN.  Then, RAYMOND ROWE had to bow out.  And finally, TOBY KLEIN is being advertised to wrestle for IWA: Mid-South on September 7, 8 and 9 and has become unreachable by UNION officials to either confirm or cancel his long-scheduled appearance in Toronto.

Shaw has taken this opportunity to recruit some new talent and re-shuffle the line-up for this debut event.  First, Shaw contacted indy wrestling sensation “FABULOUS” JOHN McCHESNEY.  Fans with elephant-like memories will recall that McChesney was the last Heavyweight champion of the original UNION back in 2004.   The Fabulous One is now back in the UNION and looking to climb back to the top.  He’ll get that chance right away as McChesney will take on EL GENERICO in the evening’s semi-main event.

Next, Austin Shaw placed a call to South Jersey to recruit “The New Generation Ace” RICKY LANDELL.  Trained by STEVE CORINO, Landell has come into his own making appearances for groups such as Ring of Honor and Jersey All-Pro, successfully touring Japan, winning the AWA World Tag titles and now, joining the UNION.  The brash young upstart will go one-on-one with Buffalo, NY’s PEPPER PARKS at BORN AGAIN.

In addition, Shaw has scrambled the card a little to provide UNION fans’ with even more excitement.  Shaw has added another Northern Lights Cruiserweight Division match as EDDIE OSBOURNE will now face off against RIP IMPACT.   With The HORNET and SHIIMA XION still scheduled to fight, the Northern Lights Division is getting a tremendous kick-off at BORN AGAIN.

Here’s a rundown of the complete card…
