BOOKER T IS COMING
Universal Championship Wrestling’s roster continues to grow stronger
with the arrival of one of the most dynamic, athletic, and
entertaining Superstars of the past decade. Booker T, the six-time
former World champion, will make his UCW debut on July 17 at “Clash of
the Champions” in Lenoir, NC.
One of the most prolific champions in wrestling history, Booker T has
been a tag team champion on fifteen occasions, mostly with his brother
Stevie Ray. As one half of Harlem Heat, Booker T faced off against
(and defeated) teams like the Steiner Brothers, the Nasty Boys, and
The Public Enemy. Later, Booker T became an exemplary singles
competitor, facing top competition like Bret Hart, Rick Martel, and
former Universal Heavyweight Champion Perry Saturn.
However, Booker T’s career truly took off when he defeated Jeff
Jarrett for the WCW World Championship on July 9, 2000. From there,
Booker T cemented his status as one of the very best in professional
wrestling by defending his championship against such icons as Sting,
Goldberg, Kevin Nash, and Scott Steiner. In WWE, Booker T continued to
excel, headlining WrestleMania XIX and becoming the 2006 King of the
What will this explosive and iconic Superstar do once he sets foot in
a UCW ring? Only those lucky enough to buy tickets for ‘Clash of the
Champions’ will find out live and in person on July 17.
ROAD WILD ROARS BACK TO LIFE
Universal Championship Wrestling is bringing back another wrestling
tradition for fans to enjoy. From 1996 to 1999, World Championship
Wrestling presented “Road Wild,” one of the most unique and
unconventional supercards in pro wrestling history. Instead of selling
out an arena in a major city, WCW brought wrestling action outdoors to
the wildest motorcycle event in the world – the Sturgis Rally and
Races in the heart of the Black Hills. Superstars as diverse as Hulk
Hogan, Jay Leno, Ric Flair, and Dennis Rodman were a part of this
Now, UCW is bringing back “Road Wild” on Friday, August 13 at the
world-famous Full Throttle Saloon (featured in the truTV series of the
same name). Scott Steiner, Scott Norton, Al Snow, and the Barbarian
are just a few of the Superstars who will compete in front of
thousands of bikers at “Road Wild.” Keep checking www.ucwlive.net for
more information on this summer supershow!
RON SIMMONS NEW UCW BOSS
Damn! The UCW Executive Committee recently voted to name former WCW
World Champion Ron Simmons as the new UCW Commissioner, responsible
for all major matchmaking decisions.
Before becoming a wrestler, Simmons was a three-time All-American at
Florida State University, ultimately being inducted into the College
Football Hall of Fame and the Orange Bowl Hall of Fam. Along with his
tag team partner Butch Reed, Simmons was one-half of the very first
WCW World Tag Team Champions. However, Simmons’ greatest achievement
came on August 2, 1992 when he upset the massive Big Van Vader to
become the first African-American World Heavyweight champion.
It remains to be seen what sort of managerial approach Commissioner
Simmons will take when dealing with the complex politics of the
squared circle, but UCW fans and Superstars alike will learn in the
