UIPW News for 09 July 2007




~The Union roster adds a little Insanity!

~New ticket deal for September’s BORN AGAIN

~Join the Union on MySpace.com




EL GENERICO vs STERLING JAMES KEENAN.  HORNET vs. SHIIMA XION.  STEVE CORINO in the main event.  The Union of Independent Professional Wrestlers is already putting together a stacked line-up for BORN AGAIN.  And now the news gets even better.  UIPW’s Head of Fighters Affairs, AUSTIN SHAW, has released the names of three more Union Workers who will appear at Legion Hall #101 in Toronto on Saturday September 8th.


First comes news that the 6 foot, 9 inch, 300+ pounds “MOTOR CITY MONSTER” EDDIE VENOM will make his Union debut on September 8th at “BORN AGAIN”.  Venom has been destroying competitors throughout Michigan and Ohio for the past few years and has plans to do the same when he’s unleashed upon the Union roster this September.


And then, in the third match announced for the debut event: Northern Lights division star RIP IMPACT steps outside the cruiserweight scene to take on current CZW Iron Man champion “MR. INSANITY” TOBY KLEIN.  Klein is a former IWA: Mid-South King of the Death Match and, more than any other wrestler in Union history, brings with him a career-long reputation for savage brawling and blood-thirsty antics.  Rip Impact, on the other hand, has been building his name with incredible technical skills and high-risk aerials.  It’s agility vs. brutality as Impact meets Insanity in September at “BORN AGAIN”.


The Union of Independent Professional Wrestlers presents “BORN AGAIN” on Saturday September 8th 2007 starting at 7pm at Royal Canadian Legion Hall #101 in Toronto, Ontario.  Doors open at 630pm.  The Legion Hall is located at

3850 Lake Shore Blvd West

, midway between

Dixie Road

and Brown’s Line and directly adjacent to both the Long Branch GO station and the TTC’s Long Branch Loop. 


The venue has a FULLY LICENSED BAR so fans are reminded to bring valid ID and encouraged to use public transit if they plan to purchase alcohol.
