nice. I have been waiting for this guy to go to the big leaugues, however I havent followed his career since elite xc. Nice pick up, especially to boost the lower tier of HW competition.

Sylvia and Rizzo should be acquired also, to boost the lower tier of the hw division in my opinion.

Pee Wee is a great addition, reminds me a little of B. Schaub.....a little raw and rough around the edges but gritty, tough strong and powerful striking......he should get past Rob.

I keep hearing about these Visa issues anyone know what they are? Do we really want him in the States or Canada if he has these issues?
