July 3, 2007 marks the 20 year anniversary of the professional wrestling debut of Indy icon, "Dirty Deeds" Darren Wyse.

On this date 20 years ago, Wyse made his debut working as a manager to King Kahlua, and leading him to a decisive victory over then WWE prelim wrestler Jimmy Londos.

This event took place at the Reading Phillies, Municipal Stadium in Reading Pa., for the old NWF {National Wrestling Federation}.Other stars who took part in this event were Tommy Rogers & Bobby Fulton AKA The Fantastics, Chief Jules Strongbow, The Godfather - Damian Kane, and the legendary Abdullah the Butcher as well as many others.

Though Wyse made his debut as a manager,he quickly donned the boots and became a legend in his own right,as a wrestler.

He single handily put the World's Welterweight Title on US map, holding the strap on six separate occasions.
He has also held the NWA Intercontinental Heavyweight Title, The WPW Light Heavyweight Title, The Hardway Hardcore Heavyweight Title, and along with long time tag team partner The Hungarian Barbarian, has held numerous regional tag team titles.
The two, {Wyse & Barbarian} have also been involved {and continue to be} in one of the most infamous & notorious feuds through out the east coast with former ECW stars Bad Crew.

He has worked for a "Who's Who" within the the pro wrestling industry,including a stint in USWA {Memphis} where he was involved in programs with Jerry Lawler, Bill Dundee, Jeff Jarrett, the late Billy Joe Travis and many others.

He was also an integral part of a heel group named the Heart Throb Four, with Tom Brandi, Flex Lavender and the late Chris Candido, working for the Savoldi's IWCCW, long before similar groups became chic.

Wyse is also well known as founder and promoter for the long running east coast independent federation,NCW {National Championship Wrestling}

He has become well respected as a diligent and tireless promoter,who has combined thousands of promotional brainstorms with crisp and solid booking, which he has parlayed into many many huge houses during NCW's long & successful run.

Wyse also runs the NCW Pro Wrestling Training Center, out of York, Pa

In addition Wyse has worked as a Color Commentator for numerous years and numerous organizations, and along with his steady commentary partner,lead announcer Chad "R.C." Gerber, the 2 have become considered by many, to be the best tandem in the business.

He has also made his mark behind the scenes with groups such as Dan Kowal's WEW {Women's Extreme Wrestling} and others.

His 1990's appearance on the Howard Stern Show became one of the highest rated episodes in the shows history, and continues to live on in rerun heaven.

A former stand-out baseball player, Wyse now makes the rounds as a top notch bowler, competing in numerous local, regional and national tournaments, when not on the road entertaining wrestling fans as the one and only "Dirty Deeds" Darren Wyse.

To drop a congratulatory note to Darren, on his 20 year anniversary, please E-Mail the NCW Office NCW2Brutal@Yahoo.com. It will be forwarded directy to him from there.

IWF in Port Robinson, Ontario Results
June 30

With half the talent not showing, a single elimination tournament was held to crown the 1st IWF Heavyweight Champion.

It was announced that both Big Daddy T and The Sheik Abdullah would receive byes into round two.

Round One
Patty O'Connor def. Hatebreeder

Brad Hexum def. Vinnie DaVinci

Round Two
The Sheik Abdullah def. Patty O'Connor

Big Daddy T pinned Brad Hexum

Brad Hexum defeated Patty O'Connor and Vinnie DaVinci in a triple threat match to earn the first title shot at the next show (July 29th).

The Sheik Abdullah announced that he was tired of wrestling in a @#$% town like Port Robinson. He handed his title shot to Hatebreeder.

Hatebreeder pinned Big Daddy T in a No DQ, No Countout match to win the IWF Heavyweight Title.

Hatebreeder then laid down and allowed The Sheik Abdullah to pin him for the title.

The next IWF show will be held July 29th, once again in Port Robinson at the Port Robinson Community Centre.

One car load of talent cancelled for whatever reason. The second needed to cancel due to a personal issue involving the driver and his family. In total six or seven more talent were expected.
