We’re now less than two weeks away from the UNION’s Toronto debut, BORN AGAIN, and the excitement is growing.Â Tickets are moving briskly and the wrestling fans of Southern Ontario are talking about the huge grudge match main event that will pit ECW Original STEVE CORINO against upstart indy star STERLING JAMES KEENAN.Â Â From the United States to the United Kingdom to the streets of Toronto, this battle has been brewing for almost 2 years and now it explodes with an all-out brawl at UIPW’s BORN AGAIN.
Here’s a rundown of the complete card…

The UNION of INDEPENDENT PROFESSIONAL WRESTLERS presents “BORN AGAIN” on Saturday September 8th 2007 at Royal Canadian Legion Hall #101 in Toronto, Ontario.Â Doors open at 630pm.Â Bell time is 7pm.Â 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.Â
Tickets are ON SALE NOW in person at the Legion Hall and online via the “UNION SHOP” at www.wrestlersunion.ca.Â The event is open to ALL AGES, but for those 19 and older, the Legion Hall includes a FULLY LICENSED BAR.Â Â Fans are reminded to bring valid ID and encouraged to use public transit if they plan to purchase alcohol.
THE RUMOR MILL IS RUNNING HOT!!!
As mentioned briefly in last week’s interview with STERLING JAMES KEENAN (available now for you to read at www.wrestlersunion.ca), rumors have been circulating in and around The Union that SJK may be looking to surround himself “an entourage” to handle his dirty work.Â Â Keenan denies the rumors but the UNION Office has received several calls, seemingly from the same woman, in regards to a trio of UNION Workers, including Sterling James Keenan.
We phoned Keenan directly this afternoon to ask him who this woman was and if this was his way of signaling the creation of a new stable of wrestlers.Â Â Keenan replied with four words and then hung up.Â The words?Â “Blood.Â Death.Â Sex.Â Magic.”
