Tekko 2019 is proud to announce:

Big Time Wrestling

Shane Douglas

Shane Douglas spent time in his early career in Japan, wrestling for AJPW with tag partner Johnny Ace (Laurinaitis) as part of the tag team “The Dynamic Dudes.” Douglas has held a dozen championships between ECW, WCW, and WWE. In 1994 Douglas won a tournament to become the new NWA heavyweight champion. He threw that title to the ground, proclaiming the death of the NWA, and the birth of ECW. It is as an ECW original that Douglas was given the moniker of “The Franchise.” Shane Douglas holds the record for most combined days as ECW champion (874) and the record for longest single reign in ECW championship history (406 days). In his WWE.com bio, they state that “without Shane Douglas, there would have been no ECW.”

Road Warrior Animal

Animal has wrestled in the United States for AWA, NWA, WCW, and WWE. In Japan, Animal has wrestled for AJPW, NJPW, UPW, SWS, ZERO1, and World Japan. Animal (with the late Road Warrior Hawk) is a former WWE Tag Team Champion, WCW Tag Team Champion, and IWGP Tag Team Champion to name a few. Between 1985 and 1990, the Road Warriors toured Japan, mainly with All Japan Pro Wrestling (AJPW). Their dominant victories garnered the Road Warriors a lot of Japanese wrestling media headlines and front page stories, ultimately making them legends in Japan. Animal returned to AJPW in 2007 teaming with Sasaki to form the Hell Warriors. On April 2nd 2011, The Road Warriors, with former manager Paul Ellering, were inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.

Scott “Big Poppa Pump” Steiner

Prior to his professional career, Scott Steiner was an amateur wrestler at the University of Michigan. He is a decorated tag team wrestler with brother Rick as The Steiner Brothers. They are considered one of the best tag teams of all time and won several titles including the WWE Tag Team Championship, WCW World Tag Team Championship, IWGP Tag Team Championship, and the TNA/Impact World Tag Team Championship. The Steiner Brothers also briefly spent time in ECW from July through October of 1995 and wrestled periodically for NJPW from 1991 through 1997, making additional appearances in 2002 and 2008. Most notable were their appearances at the WCW/NJPW Supershows from 1991-1993. Scott also wrestled for AJPW in 2007. Scott Steiner found success as a singles wrestler, particularly in WCW where he became a Triple Crown Champion, holding the WCW World Heavyweight Champion, WCW World Television Title, and WCW United States Heavyweight Title. To quote WWE.com, “boasting an impressive resume of both tag team and singles success, Big Poppa Pump is one of the most memorable competitors and personalities in WWE history. His agility and strength were a dominant combination inside the squared circle and one thing was always certain, Big Poppa Pump is your hook up. Holler, if you hear me!”

ShockWave the Robot

ShockWave the Robot is a break dancing wrestler who believes he is some kind of a cyborg. He has wrestled for ZERO1 and New Japan Dojo. “Japan was a dream come true and I loved it there” says ShockWave. “I trained with Hidaka and…by far the most grueling exercises and best athletic training that I had ever done.”
