UIPW News for 24 Sep 2007



~ BRODIE LEE set to debut in October

~ Just under two weeks away from STATE OF SHOCK in Toronto
~ “BORN AGAIN” dvd’s are coming


Standing 6’7″ tall and weighing in at almost 300lbs, BRODIE LEE is a man on the move. Still in the early stages of his career, Brodie has already faced off against the likes of Steve Corino, Abyss, Danny Doring, Sterling James Keenan, Eric Young and the tag team of Austin Aries and Roderick Strong.   He has competed for such groups as Chikara, Ballpark Brawl, FNW, NWA Empire and NWA Upstate and has held the NWA Upstate Heavyweight title.

He’s fast.  He’s agile.  He’s a wrestling prodigy.   And now Brodie Lee is joining the Union.  Brodie has set his sights squarely on winning the Union Heavyweight title and hopes to impress officials enough with his debut match at “STATE OF SHOCK” on October 6th in Toronto to earn a spot in November’s title tournament.  Come see this young star in his very first Toronto appearance and JOIN THE UNION!


September’s “BORN AGAIN” show has left Toronto wrestling fans in a “STATE OF SHOCK”!  You can find out what all the excitement is about firsthand when the UNION of INDEPENDENT PROFESSIONAL WRESTLERS returns to Royal Canadian Legion Hall #101 on Saturday October 6th.   The Union roster will look to thrill and amaze the hometown faithful with another evening of UIPW excitement

BLOODDEATHSEXMAGIC announced their presence to the world this month and their voice will only get louder in October.   First, the BDSM’s self-described “drunken street-fighting maniac”, SEBASTIAN DARK will take on the supremely confident JOHN McCHESNEY in a no-DQ grudge match for a spot in the November Union title tournament.   Both men have a history with the title.  Sebastian was the first-ever Union champ.  John was the last-ever Union champ.   Now, “The Bastard Son of 1,000 Corpses” and “The Fabulous One” will slug it out with no holds barred for a chance to become the NEXT Union Champion.

Then, STERLING JAMES KEENAN, leader of the BDSM, will be in the main event at “STATE OF SHOCK” as he faces off against former Ring of Honor World Tag Team champion RICKY REYES.   Reyes has spent most of his career associated with men like SENSHI, ROCKY ROMERO and HOMCIDE.  All four men share a type of ferocity and a kill-or-be-killed attitude that Reyes hopes will power him through Keenan and to the top of the Union.  But with the incredibly sexy CHASE by his side, Sterling is looking to send the “Havana Pitbull” back to the pound.

The Workers of the Northern Lights division bring us more unbelievable cruiserweight action at “STATE OF SHOCK” as fan favourite RIP IMPACT faces veteran international star HENTAI.   This match promises to be a fast-paced affair filled with high-risk offence.  Can Ontario’s most valuable player turn back the challenge of the masked assassin?   Join us at the Legion Hall to find out.

Also announced for October 6th, REGGIE MARLEY will fight the “Motor City Monster” EDDIE VENOM; THE ALL-KNIGHTERS take on THE FLATLINERS, plus appearances by EDDIE OSBOURNE, “The King of Canada” JESSY JONES, ETHAN PAGE, the debut of BRODIE LEE and much, much more.

The UNION of INDEPENDENT PROFESSIONAL WRESTLERS returns to Royal Canadian Legion Hall #101 in Toronto, Ontario on Saturday October 6th for “STATE OF SHOCK”.  Doors open at 630pm.  Bell time is 7pm.  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.

Tickets are ON SALE NOW in person at the Legion Hall and online via the “UNION SHOP” at www.wrestlersunion.ca.  The event is open to ALL AGES, but for those 19 and older, the Legion Hall includes a FULLY LICENSED BAR.   Fans are reminded to bring valid ID and encouraged to use public transit if they plan to purchase alcohol.


Just a quick note to say that the fine folks at HAMMERLOCK VIDEO contacted us today to say that dvd’s of the Union’s debut event, “BORN AGAIN”, will be ready for sale on October 6th.   This means fans attending the “STATE OF SHOCK” event will be the first in line to purchase this little slice of wrestling history.  Steve Corino vs Sterling James Keenan, Pepper Parks vs Ricky Landell, the fearsome debut of Eddie Venom and incredible cruiserweight action featuring El Generico, Rip Impact, Shiima Xion and “Fabulous” John McChesney plus so much more.   Fans wanting to purchase dvd’s online will have to wait until October 8th.  More details next week…
