2012 Nominee
Adam Pearce

 

Height: 6â??2â?
Weight: 245 .lbs
Hometown:, San Diego CA
Debut: May 16, 1996
Birthday: June 24

By 30 years of age, Adam Pearce was recognized by the American wrestling media as one of the top 50 wrestlers in the entire world â?? and was reigning atop the wrestling world as the NWA World champion.

Adding his name to a list of legendary wrestlers including Ric Flair, Harley Race and Lou Thesz was not an easy road for Pearce, who won his first world championship in 2007 at age 29.  Itâ??s hard to believe that the champion was stricken as a youth with  acute muscular compartment syndrome in both legs during his teens â?? a condition which required surgery and required him to re-learn even how to walk.

However, upon recovery, Pearce started training for a ring career which would take him around the world.  His debut, at seventeen years of age on May 16, 1996 took place just prior to his graduation from high school and his real education in the school of hard knocks began.   During his fifteen year ring career he has competed   for some of the premiere leagues in wrestling industry, including appearances for the WWE, WCW, New Japan Pro Wrestling, and many of the top independent wrestling circuits in the United States â?? for which he is perhaps best known.

Pearceâ??s influence on wrestling as a ring psychologist and locker room leader are widely known.  In fact, the world champion is one of the wrestlers credited with launching the career of current WWE World champion, C.M. Punk.

Pearce is probably best recognized by Canadian fans fans for his association with the Philadelphia-based Ring of Honor wrestling circuit, which airs on the Fight Network.  Ring of Honor (or ROH) was featured in the Mickey Rourke movie, The Wrestler.  Here, Pearce faced off with the likes of Samoa Joe, Daniel Bryan, C.M. Punk and others.

As NWA champion, Pearce has proven to be one of the most aggressive champions in his defense of the title and his travel schedule rivals that of many legendary champions of years past.  Not since the championship was restored as a travelling title not encumbered to a specific regional circuit has anyone dominated the division in the manner that Pearce has.  A record which he plans to preserve tonight against local favorite, Vance Nevada.

Titles Held:
NWA World Heavyweight (4x)
NWA Heritage title (2x)
NWA British Commonwealth
ASCW Heavywight
ASCW Television title
Alternative Wrestling Show title
IWA Mid-South Light Heavy.
Mid-America Wrestling title
Pro Wrestling Guerilla title
Steel Domain Wrestling TV title
Ultimate Pro Wrestling title

 

 

2012 Nominee
Brandon Gatson

 

Weight: 200 lbs
Height: 6″0″
Years Pro: 13
Hometown: Los Angeles, Ca

Brandon trained at Empire Wrestling Federation by Jesse Hernandez and to this day has been loyal to his roots there.  He has had the benefit of attending & learning from the many superstar clinics that Jesse is able to provide for his students. Brandon still strives to hone & mold his craft and is always open to instruction even though he has achieved much in his career already.

Brandon has had the good fortune to wrestle a few matches for WWE and he showed well.  He is a multi-time EWF Heavyweight champion & NWA Arizona Heavyweight champion.  He has wrestled for many promotions including FSW, PWG, WCWC & CZW where he was featured in the highly respected CZW Best of the Best Tournament in 2010. Brandon is well known on the Indy circuit throughout Arizona, California & Oregon.

Jenn Thornhill  knows Brandonâ??s work from a different type of venue. ” I put shows together that share the message of Christ.  I first saw Brandon work an exhibition show for Athletes International in 2006.   I was impressed with his work & his commitment to his craft but more than that I was impressed with the character of this young man.  Through the years I have seen Brandon grow not only as a Wrestler but as a motivational speaker to kids and as a strong ethical man working to have a prosperous life for his family.  Brandon is a multi-talented singer, songwriter, musician & producer not only do I believe he will continue to be successful in wrestling but in every aspect of his life. Brandon would make a wonderful role model to up & coming wrestlers as the 2012 Future Legend.”

 

 

2012 Nominee
Matt Riviera

Height and Weight – 6’3″ 235 pounds
Russ Vegas, Arkansas (aka Russellville, Arkansas)

From a humble start as true fan on the sport, Matt was fortunate to  have a father that would take him to every wrestling show available in the state of Arkansas and Oklahoma. He would watch wrestling on TV and not only appreciated the athletic competition but also booking philosophies of the different promotions. Like a sponge, he started figuring out what made sense and sold tickets and what did not.

At the age of 15, Matt started helping promoters for the organizations he liked by making and distributing show posters around the towns where he attended shows. After watching other promoters put on less than stellar shows, Matt figured he should at least try to put together his own wrestling shows and he formed Global Pro Wrestling. He would bring in stars from around the Mid-South area that he felt would not only sell tickets but also make money. From that modest beginning at age 15, Matt has continued to not only promote but he also began training to make his impact in the ring.

Under the initial training of Bill Ash, Tim Storm and Jeff Jett, Matt learned from the mat up. He learned in-ring mechanics, the proper techniques of chain wrestling, how to read crowds and  most important, how to tell that story in the ring. Matt made his in-ring debut at the age of 21, four years after promoting his first show.’

Matt is able to learn from every wrestler he works and continues to find ways to improve his in-ring presentation. But the promotion part of his career has not slowed down. Moving on from the initial Global Pro Wrestling, he has founded Traditional Championship Wrestling – where tradition lives on! Matt is an advocate of Old School booking, TCW is a promotion that  puts wrestling first and presents shows that parents can take their children to see and not be afraid that they will hear cursing or see massive amounts of blood.

Although Matt has held various championships, he knows you don’t have to be a champion to be an excellent entertainer in the ring. The story in the ring is most important and he relishes every opportunity to be in front of the TCW fans.

In addition to the live performance aspect of TCW, he began to reach out to the state of Arkansas with episodic television. In 2009, TCW Television started out as a 10 minute web show using a two camera shoot and crude graphics. Beginning last July, TCW Television premiered on broadcast stations throughout Arkansas to audiences of over 5 million potential viewers. TCW Television continues today as a four camera shoot with  former WCW Announcer Christopher Cruise as host and play-by-play announcer. The show continues to be broadcast not only to over the air outlets but also on the TCW Web Site (http://traditionalwrestling.com) on a weekly basis. Matt’s broadcast experience through college has allowed him to assemble the type of production facilities, equipment  and personnel that makes almost all other promotions pale in comparison.

2012 Nominee
Glenn Ulrich

 Glenn was only 10 years old when he literally stumbled upon Richie Rottens professional wrestling school which was located in an AmVets Hall across the street from his home. He started training on how to wrestle and bump at ten.  He began working on the shows as the owner of the fed and could not wrestle due to his age and size obviously.  However, he was at the school every week working out with guys who went on to greatness such as former TNA Stars Jay Lethal and Homicide.  He also had the opportunity to train with former WWE stars Charlie Hass and Jackie Gayda.  Glenn took many clinics as he grew up and worked with such guys as Dr. Tom Prichard, Kevin Kelly, Robbie E, Julio Dinero, Stevie Richards, Nunzio, Gangrel, Charlie Haas and others.  He Joined the Cauliflower Alley Club and became their youngest lifetime member at the time at the age of 16.

Glenn also excelled in high school sports including wrestling and football.  In wrestling Glenn was a four year varsity wrestler, was team captain, won three district championships, two time place winner at the regional championships, earned a birth in the state wrestling championship and was selected to wrestle in the High School National championships.  These are tremendous accomplishments as New Jersey is one of only a few states that wrestle all the way down to one single state champion in each weight class for the entire state regardless of school size, public or private school.

Glenn had the fortune to sit down with Roddy Piper and get some advice that changed his life.  Roddy Piper advised Glenn that he should go to school after he graduated high school and get some type of education.  He told him no matter how good he may be or not at wrestling he needed to have a back up plan for when it was over.  Roddy spoke with Glenn just like he would his own son and that meant a lot to Glenn.  Glenn took the advice from Roddy and he enrolled in UTI / MMI school for Motorcycle Mechanics to pursue his further education.  Glenn graduated with honors and is now a certified Harley Davison Technician and a certified Kawasaki Technician.

Now Glenn is out of school and again climbing in the ring enjoying his days as a wrestler and pursuing his dream.  He has the degree in his pocket and a back up plan for the future thanks to some great advice.

Personally Glenn is a fine young man the club can be proud of.  He is very respectful and especially respects the legends that have come before him and helped create the great business we all love.  It is also evident by the fact that he is a lifetime member of this great club and is at all the reunions (except I think one while he was in MMI) since he turned 16.  Glenn has also learned Carny thanks to so many of the legends and in respect of them.

Glenn runs the BWO, Bodyslam Wrestling Organization, in NJ and uses the company to do countless fundraising events for sick children, Project Graduations, Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, The Make a Wish Foundation, American Legions, Disabled American Veterans, POW/MIA and so many more.  In his free time Glenn visits children in hospitals bringing pictures and items from the wrestling shows, and spending time to cheer them up and put a smile on their faces.

He has had the pleasure to tryout in front of many of the greats of the business and get pointers from the legends at the wrestling shows at the reunion.  He has been selected to work on the shows and perform in front of the members, fans and legends at the CAC reunion many times.  This has helped him to get better and better every time.  He has had the pleasure of getting evaluated at the tryouts by guys like Harley Race, Les Thatcher and Pat Patterson and even got to wrestle on a show run by Jason Deadrich.

Glenn is a well rounded young man.  He still enjoys playing sports and he enjoys working out in the gym.  Glenn has always had a love for motorcycles and has been riding since he was a little boy.  He has also always been a bit of a daredevil I guess and this year he began racing motorcycles competitively in motocross competitions.  He is doing well, and practicing as much as possible while balancing all of this with his personal life, professional wrestling, running a fed, doing charity work, working a regular job and so much more.
