He has spent his entire career up until now with MAW where he is a former American Champion and twice won the Sam Keith Classic.

Robbinfield, Hazard Gang, Dan Stone III, and Nolan Dunn to TGL

Harvey Robbinfield, Buck Winchester, Wes Revell,Duke Hazard, Dan Stone III and Nolan Stone are all reporting to TGL to work. Robbinfield has failed to impress since joining TGL late last year, while the Hazard Gang has struggled in their return to build consistency in their performances. Stone and Dunn are both very young in their careers and the hope for all of them is that they can become major players for TGL, especially with the call ups creating openings.


The Cummos and The Heartbreak Express called up

Former two-time Texas Tag Team Champions, The Cummos and former one-time Texas Tag Team Champions, The Heartbreak Express, are being called onto the main roster. With two members of the Stone Foundation, The Hazard Gang, and Samoan Mafia all reporting to TGL recently it has created openings in the tag team division that both teams hope to fill.

With the Heavyweight and Junior Heavyweight Championship being the main targets for the weight classes, the Brass Knuckles Championship will offer an openweight experience for the TGL roster and the opportunity for more TGL grapplers to mix it up.
