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!

At the turn of the millenium, original WCPW Owner Sam Decero had the vision of holding the Largest Battle Royal in Pro Wrestling History. A match of monumental proportions. He wanted to get 120 competitors together, put them in 3 rings, and have them battle it out to determine the ultimate battle royal competitor of our time! Decero took his vision a step further and decided that the winner of such a historic match should win a Championship. Not a trophy, not a medal, not a plaque. The winner was to be crowned the first ever WCPW Battle Royal Champion and be presented with a Title Belt that would be defended in battle royals from that night on.
Sam Decero went to work in making his vision a reality and on May 20th 2000, at Battle of the Belts 12, WCPW set up 3 rings in The Hammond Civic Center, 120 men and women were gathered, and the main event of the evening saw a plethora of bodies being thrown over the top rope onto the floor in chaos not seen since people were jumping off the Titanic! At the end of all of the carnage, each ring had one survivor apiece. Ring 1 saw WCPW Heavyweight Champion Willie Da Bomb Richardson standing tall. Ring 3 saw Crystal The Diva Carmichael having managed to somehow eliminate all of her competition. While ring 2 saw Hollywood Director Bigtime defying all predicitons and standing solo.
The 3 competitors came together in the middle ring to battle for final supremacy. Willie picked up Bigtime over his head and threw Bigtime out of the ring and into the arms of his group "Sports Entertainment". Willie then hugged Crystal and decided to be a gentleman and allow her to win the match by eliminating himself over the top rope. However, what Crystal and Willie did not realize is that Bigtime's feet had never touched the floor since his colleagues had caught him in mid air and never set him down. Sports Entertainment rolled Bigtime back into the ring and he quickly ran up behind Crystal and eliminated her. Defying all odds and outsmarting everyone else, Bigtime had won the Largest Battle Royal in History, The Largest Championship Match in History, and became the first ever WCPW Battle Royal Champion.
While a larger Battle Royal was held in 2010, the record was held by WCPW for more than 10 years. This match is still the Largest Championship Match in Pro Wrestling History though. A record that is not in danger of being broken any time soon. This spectacle of history came together from the vision of one man: Sam Decero. Some people doubted that something like this could be pulled off but due to sheer perseverance, Decero was able to make his vision a reality and earn himself a place in the annals of Pro Wrestling History as the promoter of The Largest Championship Match in History. A match that could only be presented by WCPW!
WCPW Owner Bigtime's recent trip to Las Vegas was shrouded in mystery but we can now reveal what the purpose of the trip was. Bigtime went to Las Vegas to meet with New Thing Robby Dawber to discuss a variety of topics. The friendship between these two spans over 20 years and they have been both friend and enemy to one another. Mr. Dawber joined WCPW before Bigtime did and remained with the company after Bigtime left, winning the Company's League Title and being promoted to a Creative Producer's role behind the scenes. Mr. Dawber's knowledge of the previous version of this Company is extensive. After Mr. Dawber left WCPW, he went on to OVW where he trained with the likes of Simon Dean, Cody Rhodes, and CM Punk. Mr. Dawber even appeared in the WrestleMania 22 Main event as part of John Cena's entourage.
Bigtime asked his long time frenemy if he'd be interested in being a part of The New WCPW. Robby Dawber is happily retired from the wrestling business and respectfully declined. However, Mr. Dawber did express his interest in seeing The New WCPW succeed so he offered to put Bigtime in touch with his contacts from his time in OVW ensuring that Bigtime will have access to some of the rising stars of the business today.
Between Bigtime's connections in Tennessee, Atlanta, and Florida, the addition of a connection to OVW contacts will ensure that The New WCPW will continue to offer fans a roster that cannot be seen elsewhere in Chicago. Sports Entertainers that look like Professional Wrestlers. WCPW's roster of unique talent with professional gear and a skillset developed while wrestling accross The Country and The World is what allows us to continue to set the standard in Chicago Professional Wrestling.
Later this month, WCPW Owner Bigtime will have several days of meetings in Las Vegas. Speculation is running rampant as to what those meetings will be about but as of right now Bigtime is remaining tight lipped. When asked about his upcoming trip, Bigtime had this to say: "I learned a long time ago that you don't speak about things unless the t's are crossed and the i's are dotted. When things are finalized the fans of WCPW will know!".
People are wondering if WCPW could be looking to put on it's first show in Las Vegas or whether Bigtime is going there to scout local talent to bring back to Chicago. One thing is for certain. The Hollywood Director turned wrestling promoter would not be heading back to the West Coast for a simple vacation. There is a reason he's earned the moniker of "The Most Controversial Man Alive!". Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
