October 6th, 2021 -- After 9 years of continuous negotiation, Windy City Pro Wrestling (WCPW) Owner Bigtime (James K. Duck) purchases all intellectual property created by Sam DeCero's WCPW including the rights to the trademarks Windy City Wrestling, Windy City Pro Wrestling, Urban American Pro Wrestling, UAPW, and Battle of the Belts. This acquisition includes the WCPW tape library that spans 22 years and includes all 23 Battle of the Belts events that includes some of professional wrestling's biggest stars such as Bam Bam Bigelow, Terry Bam Bam Gordy, Bruiser Brody, Ken Patera, Greg The Hammer Valentine, Road Warrior Hawk, AJ Styles, Abyss, Christopher Daniels, Rob Van Dam, Samoa Joe, and many others.
This IP purchase creates one lineage for WCPW, a company that was created by Sam DeCero in 1988, ran until 2010, and set the standard for professionalism in the Midwest Wrestling Scene along the way. The WCPW Tape Library is one of the largest remaining tape libraries in existence that has yet to be purchased by WWE and contains such historical footage as the Battle of the Bam Bams, when Terry Bam Bam Gordy met Bam Bam Bigelow for the only time in their careers. Another gem in this collection is the first ever meeting between King Kong Bruiser Brody and John Nord The Barbarian! Also included in this library is the entire rookie career of The Fallen Angel Christopher Daniels and the last professional wrestling matches held at the historic International Amphitheatre!
Now that this purchase is complete, WCPW will move forward with new Battle of the Belts events, re-releases of historic WCPW media titles, as well as entirely new projects comprised of the historic footage contained in the WCPW Tape Library! WCPW Lawyers have also taken the first steps to protect the Battle of the Belts trademark to ensure that the name cannot be trademarked by any other wrestling company! This purchase finally makes the purchase of WCPW complete with all WCPW intellectual property owned by Bigtime (James K. Duck)
My thanks to Sam DeCero and his Family. I am humbled and honored to be entrusted with the vast history and legacy of WCPW. Thanks to all of the men and women that graced a WCPW ring and helped build this brand over the decades. The responsibility that I have is not lost upon me. I will do my best to make sure that the WCPW brand lives on and remains a respected name in the professional wrestling industry.

On Saturday July 31st 2021, WCPW Legends Skull and Stone Manson, The Manson Brothers, debuted their new movie: The Manson Brothers Midnight Zombie Massacre in front of 300+ cheering fans in Rosemont Illinois at The Flashback Weekend Chicago Horror Con. This is a milestone in the lives of Skull and Stone and undoubtedly a turning point in their post wrestling careers!
Staying true to their Windy City roots, the two bikers turned brawlers turned screenwriters wrote a movie script that has them as two professional wrestlers that have to fight their way out of a lockdowned arena during a Tropical Storm. Why do they have to fight their way out? Oh, just a little virus outbreak that has turned fans and wrestlers alike into ravenous flesh eating zombies.
WCPW Owner Bigtime attended the Horror Con (dressed as Dr. Sam Loomis from Halloween of course) and had the privilege of watching the movie as it debuted to a packed auditorium. The crowd laughed. The crowd cheered like they were at a wrestling show. The crowd genuinely enjoyed a movie that tore down the behind the scenes curtain into pro wrestling while having humor, action, and horror!
After the movie was over, Skull and Stone Manson took center table on stage among Hollywood names like D.B. Sweeney and Randy Couture. Ever the performers, the two WCPW Legends were right at home with the Hollywood stars and commanded the audience like they hadn't been out of the ring for years! Overall it was a fun night, an enjoyable experience, and a very good movie.
The Manson Brothers have made it known that they'd like to turn this movie into a franchise and will need all of the support that they can get. So let's show some love for two of our own WCPW Legends and go see The Manson Brothers Midnight Zombie Massacre.
On Demand September 10th.
Premieres at The Music Box Theater Thursday Night September 16th

I am extremely saddened to have to inform my WCPW fans that the upcoming March 14th show at Huntley Middle School has been cancelled by the school district. District 428 wants to reschedule the event but are unable to discuss a possible date until the virus situation improves. As soon as I have that replacement date booked, I will let all of you, the great WCPW fans who have been so supportive of WCPW's efforts to debut in DeKalb, know immediately!
Thank you to everyone who bought a ticket in advance and to all of the local media that helped to advertise my show to DeKalb. Katrina Milton of The MidWeek, The Daily-Chronicle, The Orange Peel Gazette, Monica Becker of 94.9 WDKB, I thank you most sincerely. Lastly, a special thank you to DeKalb's very own Competitive Edge Inc., owned by Don Hawkins, for making all of the fantastic WCPW marketing materials. You created advertising that I am extremely proud of!
Please stay tuned to this website for updates about WCPW's future in DeKalb. I will make good on this unfortunate situation as soon as I'm allowed to. Thank you for giving WCPW a chance!
