I just received your edition of the PWI 500 in the mail today. I saw that when you go from page 113 to 114, it skips from 327 to 329. It looks like #328 Brandon Locke was accidentally left out of the list.

Pro Wrestling Illustrated said...

You made my day, Bob!

An unforgivable mistake. For what's it's worth, here is what should have been in the magazine.

328 BRANDON LOCKE (6’, 220, 6, 446) “The Real Deal” is the reigning New England Championship Wrestling triple-crown champion … Defeated Max Bauer for that title in February … Made it to the four-way Iron Man finals of the 2009 NECW Iron 8 tournament, which was won by Antonio Thomas … After the loss, Locke attacked Thomas and smashed the championship trophy … Proud native of the Jersey Shore is one of the most despised wrestlers in Chaotic Wrestling … Turned on his partner Chase Del Monte, igniting a heated feud.

Simon Sez!!! Awesome to see that name on the list!

Bob Durso said...

Thanks! Excellent job again. After subscribing to you guys for a good number of years, I must say that the PWI 500 is one of the top highlights of my wrestling calendar. It has been a great way for me to see how some of my favorite wrestlers' careers are doing, follow some old names I haven't heard about in a while, and get to know about a whole bunch of new guys coming up in the sport.

It's Orion Bishop not Orien Bishop. Hope its right in magazine

Pro Wrestling Illustrated said...

It's "Orion" in the magazine. I'll correct it here. Thanks.

This is always a fun read. I especially like catching up on some of my favorite independent wrestlers.

Stu, who are your current five favorite independent wrestlers (not including ROH wrestlers)?

I noticed in your list of the top 500 wrestlers of 2010, you listed a wrestler at #352 named "The Sheik". I did a double-take at that name, as I grew up in the Big Time Wrestling era in Detroit, where the REAL Sheik, Bobo Brazil, Dick the Bruiser, Killer Tim Brooks, et al tore it up in "Air Conditioned Cobo Arena". Could you give me some information on this poser, and undoubtably poor imitation of the real thing?!

Pro Wrestling Illustrated said...


The Sheik listed at #352 is actually a wrestler who has been gaining a lot of notoriety in the Florida and southern regions. Though he is clearly not the original Sheik, this Sheik does have the blessing of Ed Farhat's (the original Sheik) family to use the name.

We actually just did an "Introducing" with him for the upcoming The Wrestler/Inside Wrestling Vol. 35 which will be hitting newsstands on August 17. Make sure to check it out as it goes over all the cool details about his career and how he got to use the name, The Sheik.

I would also recommend taking a look at some of his matches on YouTube, he's a monstrous and intimidating guy who is drawing a lot of attention to himself lately.
