Frankie in the ring

Brew City Wrestling provides wrestling entertainment for all ages. We are a "family friendly" promotion that strives to be the best in wrestling entertainment with past, present and future stars from USA, WWE, TNA and GLOBAL.

Founded in 2004, wrestler/promoter Frankie DeFalco based his promotion with an "Old School" tradition. Watching professional wrestling since the age of 5, watching AWA legends like the Crusher, Dick the Bruiser, Mad Dog Vachon, Verne Gagne, Wahoo McDaniels, "Superstar" Billy Graham and his idol, the "American Dream" Dusty Rhodes.

As time went on, Frankie learned to appreciate the history and tradition of the "Old School" way. So in May of 1979, Frankie was trained by Al "King Kong" Patterson and had his 1st match on May 8, 1979. In 1980, inside the storied Milwaukee Auditorium, Frankie wrestled in a tag team match with Jeff May against the Slaughterhouse Brothers. They won that match in front of 3,000 screaming fans to capture the UWA Tag Team Championship.

After several years with Patterson, he went on to wrestle for Tom "Rocky" Stone's IAW promotion. He held several titles including as a 5 time Tag Team Champion and 3 time Heavyweight Champion.

At that time, Stone was involved in getting talent for AWA and WWF. Frankie wrestled there on and off for for both companies for nearly 10 years, being on TV & wrestling on house shows throughout the country. He got to know and competed against many wrestlers including Curt Henning, Scott Hall, The Road Warriors, Hulk Hogan, Larry Zbyszko, Nick Bockwinkle, Shawn Michaels, Marty Jannetty, The Big Boss Man, The Honky Tonk Man, Greg "The Hammer" Valentine, Ted DiBiase, Andre The Giant and a host of others.

Carrying over that tradition, Frankie started up Brew City Wrestling in January 2004. Matt Winchester, ROH star Steve Corino, Chase McCoy, Dysfunction, and Psychotic Rage just to name a few, are the heart and soul of every Brew City Wrestling show. When you attend a Brew City Wrestling show, you will not be disappointed with the "Old School" tradition. Many superstar Legends have wrestled in BCW like Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka, Greg "The Hammer" Valentine, WWE star Kevin Owens, Tito Santana, Larry Zbyszko, Greg Gagne and The Honkly Tonk Man.

The wrestlers are always willing to give a high five, an autograph, take a picture and most importantly, spend time with the fans.

See you at the matches!
