Former WWE superstar “Bushwhacker” Luke Williams has bought a 50% stake in an independent wrestling promotion called Independent Superstars of Professional Wrestling (ISPW).
The East Coast independent promotion is ran and operated by long-time promoter Tommy Fierro. ISPW was a popular promotion in New Jersey during the professional wrestling’s boom period known as the Attitude Era.
“I went to Tommy Fierro’s wrestling store The Wrestling Collector in Stockholm, NJ over the summer for an appearance and Tommy was talking about how he was planning on bringing back his ISPW promotion and told me his ideas and plans for it,” the WWE Hall of Famer said in an official statement.
“I knew Tommy since he was a teenager running events and I’m so happy and proud to see how far along he’s come in the business. The more Tommy began to explain his vision of ISPW to me, the more I was thinking to myself that I wanted to be a part of it.”
The 74-year-old said that he discussed the idea of a working relationship with Tommy and that led him to purchase half of the wrestling promotion. The statement added that ISPW will begin showcasing live events in 2022.
