    Craig Classic wrote: Hello, My name is Craig Classic, I would like to introduce myself. I started my training in pro wrestling, after being invited to the Big Japan Pro Wrestling Dojo in 2004. I am the first Gaijin to ever be invited to train in BJW. While training in the Dojo, I trained under Daisuke Sekimoto. Once I returned to United States I started training under “Soulman” Alex G . Soulman was trained by Boris, Dean, and Joe Malenko and Karl Gotch. Soulman has trained WWE’s MVP and Ryan O Reiley. I went on to make my professional debut in 2005 wrestling for Four Star Championship Wrestling against Chasyn Rance in Boca Raton, FL.


While training in the United States I have had the opportunity to briefly learn from Rusty Brooks, Antonio Banks (aka WWE’s MVP), Ryan O’Reilly, Pablo Marquez, Norman Smiley, Phi Delta Slam, and Masada. In 2005 and 2006 I had the honor to work a handful of times as Security for TNA Wrestling. And when I am in Japan, I have had the honor to learn briefly from some of the best wrestlers in the world such as Mens Teioh, Yoshito Sasaki, Tatsuhito Takaiwa, among other BJW Talent. In this business you can never stop learning, And my ears are always open to learn from whoever is willing to teach me.

Most recently, I have gained prominence while wrestling throughout the year, Touring with my home company of Big Japan Pro Wrestling (BJW). While touring in Japan, I have had the honor to step foot in the ring with some of the best talent in the World from Daisuke Sekimoto, Mens Teioh, Kota Ibushi, etc.

When I am not touring Japan, I wrestle around the southeast for many diffrent company’s like Pro Wrestling Fusion, Pro Wrestling Riot, D1PW, Just to name a few. In 2008 I was invited to wrestle in Jeff Peterson Cup Touranment. I wrestled Chikara’s Gran Akuma in the first round in a hard hitting contest.
