Brian Damage

Back in the 80’s and 90’s, it was very common to see some no name wrestler go up against a proven star of a promotion. Whether that be from the WWF, NWA/WCW, AWA or elsewhere, these nomads of professional wrestling were there to make the stars look great.

The Next Generation of Wrestlers You May Not Have Heard Of…Yet. Volume 7

Brian Damage

Professional wrestling has been filled with second, third and even fourth generation wrestlers. Some have made it bigger than their family members, while others have flopped badly.

These up and coming generational wrestlers are for the most part lesser known than say the more established ones like The Rock, Bray Wyatt and Joe Hennig.
