Born: JULY 31, 1987

Height: 6ft

Weight: 220lbs

From: North Philly

Nickname: “Swag Man”

Signature Move: SWAG-Matic

He is the man that introduced SWAG in to professional wrestling. Pretty Boy PAPI has been from battle to battle, from opponent to opponent proving to fans everywhere that he has the talent and charisma to be in this industry. What once was a fairytale, a goal that seemed impossible to accomplish, began to look like reality after his 20’s? Papi, whose real name is Michael Nieves, began like every other kid wrestling on his bed and moving it to the backyard with his brothers and cousins which to him at the time was the closest he would ever get to becoming a pro wrestler, but he knew and realized that his thirst and ambition of becoming a real champion a real athlete and stepping into a real ring would take him to make a huge decision a take a step forward.

After years of battling with health and personal issues Michael decided that unless he tore down the walls holding him back from his dreams, he would never be that man that could hear fans chanting for him as he one day would become a champion. He began to train at a Pro Wrestling School in Lakeland, Florida by E.J Giglo who at the time also owned his own promotion which was where Pretty Boy Papi was born on May 2011. During his training days many obstacles came up which delayed training and made his debut look further away and almost impossible.

Papi debuted his wrestling career as one half of a Puerto Rican Tag Team unfortunate his tag team debut only lasted that one night. Pretty Boy began to wrestle singles and began to grow and learn how the “Business” really worked. From the start of his wrestling career Pretty Boy Papi landed right in the spot light facing veterans and champions in many promotions across the state, going into his matches as the underdog but quickly earning the respect of fans with his old school style. As a face or heel Papi has been a fan favorite and has been nicknamed by wrestling fans as the “SWAG MAN”.

Pretty Boy Papi seems to chase his dreams and work harder with every match hoping to one day be the wrestler he wanted and craved to be as a young wrestling fan himself watching legends like Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, Hulk Hogan and Triple H. The “Swag Man” after almost just nearly two years in the industry on November 16th 2013 was given the opportunity to get in the squared circle for the promotion PWF international against his opponent Bobby Fonta where the winner would become the PWF JR United States Champion. The crowd cheered on for Papi from the get go even though it wasn’t looking “Pretty” for Papi as Fonta worked on his knee to make sure the big man could not get up, but as the crowd never lost faith neither did Papi as he fought back and never gave up. Papi dodging the belt as Fonta attempted to use it was able to connect his finisher the “SWAG MATIC” and became the New PWF JR United States Champion and held his first ever title that night November 16th 2013. Papi had accomplished a goal of being a champion for the first time.

Pretty Boy holds nothing back when it comes to being in the ring. He has been in matches such as Tag team, singles, triple treats, fatal fours, battle royals, handicap, and no DQ.  From opening matches to mid card and main eventing Pretty Boy Papi never forgets to bring his “SWAG”. From a fan base that runs across the country in different states and out the country in near Caribbean islands Papi is starting to feel his dreams closer to being a reality.  Standing at over 6 feet tall he has literally made his opponents look up at him putting fear and gaining respect as one of the toughest rising talents professional wrestling has seen.  With his “Pretty Boy” looks and tough man style he has truly put the meaning in his catch phrase “MY SWAG DNT FADE”….


Professional Wrestler Black Dragon

The Black Dragon

Height: 6 Feet   Weight: 200 lbs   D.O.B: 11/20/1981

Home Town: Uraysu-shi, Chiba-ken, Japan

Wrestler Since: February 2010

Finishing Maneuver: Dragon Sleeper, Twisted Dragon, The Dragon’s Sacrifice

Pro Wrestler Black DragonChristian Missionaries in the outskirts of Tokyo, Japan, Richard and Diane (last name unknown) gave birth to a son. Being refugees from the US living as Mission volunteers, they decided it would be best to give up their child to someone who could provide a stable life for the boy. So they placed the child on the doorstep of wealthy and highly respected traditional YuSool Jujitsu Dojo owner named Grand Master Yamato Enzigurii.

Hoping to someday find the child’s real parents, Grand Master Enziguri never named the boy. Since his arrival at the Dojo the child wore a mask designed by the Grand Master to protect him from the taunting of others because of his mixed race background. The boy would be allowed to observe the training in the Dojo but never participate.  Then on November 20th in the year 1981 the Grand Master observed the child practicing the powerful Dragon stance. Grand Master Enziguri noticed the child standing over a black lotus flower in an almost perfect Dragon stance.  On that day he began personally training the boy in the deepest and most closely guarded secret techniques of YuSool Jujitsu. He was taught the Dragon Sleeper, Twisted Dragon and the Dragon’s Sacrifice. Never before in the history of the martial arts had such high level deadly skills been taught to a child.

The Grand Master gave the school an order stating that from this day forward the child will be known as “Black Dragon”. Although the child was approximately 6 years old this day the Grand Master said would be marked as the birthday of Black Dragon. When Black Dragon was on 9 years old Grand Master Enziguri moved to the Eastern Coast of the US so he could teach more children the art of Yusool Jujitsu. Unfortunately after only a year in the US, Grand Master Enziguri died due to heart complications leaving Black Dragon alone and stranded in this strange country that had been the birthplace of his parents. When Black Dragon was 27, fate would lead him to the two people who would become his mentors, trainers, and his way into a new life as a Professional Wrestler.

The first of these men was named Rex Rumble and was the owner of New Blood Championship Wrestling and Co-owner of Lynx Wrestling Alliance. His second mentor would be the one and only Freight Train, LWA’s World Heavyweight Champion and one of the top competitors for NBCW. These two men continue to be the trainers and mentors of the Black Dragon. Under their leadership and guidance Black Dragon not only found a purpose, but also a home and a family with NBCW, LWA, PWF South Carolina and new found family Christian Carolina Championship Wrestling.

Returning to his martial arts roots, the Black Dragon is pursuing the PWF Martial Arts World Title. Onlookers feel that the combination of his martial arts training in childhood and his newly found Professional Wrestling skills will make him a formidable opponent in the Pro Wrestling Fit Martial Arts Division.

Born May 28, 1970 in Anchorage, Alaska where I lived for 18 months before moving to Tampa, Florida where my parents promptly divorced.  My mother relicated us to Orlando by age 4 where I lived until my Junior year of high school. Then back to Tampa with my dad until graduating high school in 1988.

I grew up at a time when Gordon Solie brought us Dusty Rhodes, Wahoo, Jack and Jerry Brisco, Blackjack Mulligan, Ron Bass.  But none caught my attention more than Rick Flair.  Without question, the greatest ever. Hulk…great.  Rick Flair.  Greatest ever.   I regularly saw shows at Eddie Graham and The Armory in Tampa.

I was always a fan but didn’t actually even consider wrestling until my 27th birthday when I mentioned wanting to train among friends.  They reminded me I was 5-10 165 lbs.  By my 28th birthday, I had gained 30lbs and had worked with Kahagas, Kid Romeo, Barry Horowitz, Alex Porteau and Dagon Briggs.  All still my favorite opponents and favorite people. The Korean Monster Ryze (RIP) was a dear friend as well.  Wrestling aside. Just a great human being.  I miss him every day.

Chris Nelson..  If I get “it”.  It’s because of Chris Nelson.  He was there for me at a time I wished I’d had the clarity to recognize.  If I’ve never told him, I need to.  He knew where I was headed.  I just didn’t listen.  In 2007, I walked away from Thump Dupree.  A combination of my own indiscretions and a questionable career choice and its fallout, made it easy.  Certain people could have reached out, they chose judgment.  No harm no foul.  Don’t start no sh!t and there won’t be none.  It’s 2013, I made my return with my home promotion SCW and now have joined the Pro Wrestling Fit roster as a single competitor. I had a good time working with Jason Cade in my return match.  It was good with lots of energy.  I’ve been a heel the majority of my career.  SCW Fans turned me that night in a seven minute match.  Crazy, from here I want to have fun entertaining people while making some new friends and catching up with old ones.  I have no set time before I hang up my boots.  I just hope that when I do it’s on my own terms, God willing.
