"Doomsday" Danny Rose[1] is an American professional wrestler and trainer. A mainstay on the East Coast and Mid-Atlantic region since the mid-1990s, he has worked for a number of independent promotions including Combat Zone Wrestling, Future Wrestling Alliance, The Bad Crew's Hardway Wrestling, Maryland Championship Wrestling, Mid-Eastern Wrestling Federation, Premier Wrestling Federation, and World Xtreme Wrestling.

Rose held a number of championships on the independent circuit, winning 19 titles during the first five years of his career,[3] in addition to tag team titles with Adam Flash, as both "The Family of Freaks" (PWF/MEWF) and "The Rachies" (HW/CZW), The Bruiser (MCW), and The Mad Russian (WXW). He was also a member of The Rebel's Army with The Rockin' Rebel and WWE Tough Enough's Greg Matthews, a popular "heel" group on the Pennsylvania "indy circuit", in the mid-2000s. The group reunited at the former ECW Arena for Acid-Fest: A Tribute to Trent Acid on July 10, 2010.

Career[edit]

World Xtreme Wrestling (1996-1997)[edit]

Trained by Damien Kane, Danny Rose made his professional début in or around 1996. He wrestled for Afa Anoa'i and his World Xtreme Wrestling promotion in Allentown, Pennsylvania as the "Russian Eliminator". Within a year, he won the WXW Tag Team Championship with The Mad Russian, as "The Siberian Express", defeating George Anthony and Jay Love on June 28. They held the titles for almost three months until their loss to the Samoan Gangstas (L.A. Smooth and Matt E. Smalls) on September 19, 1997.

He would later wrestle as "Doomsday" Danny Rose after leaving WXW for the local independent circuit. On October 10, he defeated Dan Severn for National Championship Wrestling's heavyweight championship and, in Hazleton on December 13, 1997, beat George Anthony to become the All-Star Wrestling Federation's first heavyweight champion. Five days after his latest title win, he lost the NCW belt to The Honky Tonk Man.

Independent circuit (1998)[edit]

Rose moved on to the Mid-Atlantic region in early-1998 where he began wrestling for Maryland's Mid-Eastern Wrestling Federation. Feuding with Glenn Osbourne over the MEWF Heavyweight Championship, he beat him for the title in Essex on April 4, 1998.[4][5]

He also continued to wrestle for a number of other local promotions in eastern Pennsylvania. In Ray Torres and David Valentin's Regional Championship Wrestling, he won the RCW United States Heavyweight Championship from Jonathan Luvstruck in Reading, Pennsylvania on April 16, 1998, a little over two weeks his MEWF title victory. He remained undefeated as champion until defeating the promotion's heavyweight champion Flamingo Kid Pinky in a "champion vs. champion" match in Reading on July 31, whereupon the U.S. title was vacated; coincidentally, Pinky would later win the vacant championship a month later.[4] Over the summer, he also regained the NCW Heavyweight Championship from The Honky Tonk Man and would keep the belt for the next two years. Rose eventually lost the RCW Heavyweight title to George Anthony during a 6-man tag team match on October 2, and the MEWF title to Morgus the Maniac in Hampstead, Maryland on November 14, 1998.[4][5]

Maryland Championship Wrestling (1999)[edit]

Returning to Maryland, he briefly wrestled for the MEWF's new rival Maryland Championship Wrestling. On May 2, 1999, he teamed with The Bruiser to defeat The Ghetto Mafia (2-Dope and Sydeswype) for the MCW Tag Team Championship but dropped the belts back to the former champions in Owings Mills, Maryland two weeks later.[4][6][7]

Future Wrestling Alliance (1999-2000)[edit]

At the FWA's October 2 "Ultimate Jeopardy" supercard, he and Adam Flash, as part of "The Family of Freaks", were among the four teams - The Sex Idols (Tommy Idol & Qeenan Creed), The Intimidators (Mark Mest & Maxx Crimson), and The Fin Twins (Mark Shrader & Gregory Martin) - which met in a four-way elimination match to determine the first-ever FWA tag team champions.[4][6] The Family of Freaks was the second team eliminated when Flash was pinned by Tommy Idol.[8][9]

Maryland Championship Wrestling (1999-2000)[edit]

Rose returned to MCW that fall and had matches against Quinn Nash,[10] Romeo Valentino,[11] and Tom Brandi.[12][13] On December 5, 1999, he joined the Bruiser and Corporal Punishment in a 6-man tag team match to defeat Romeo Valentino, Tom Brandi, and Jimmy Cicero at Dundalk's Teamsters Hall.[14]

Rose had a second run with MCW that spring. On March 8, 2000, he and Gillberg wrestled Dino Divine and Christopher Carmichael in Glen Burnie, Maryland[15] as well as matches against Julio Fantastico, the Bruiser, Gillberg,[16] and Gregory Martin in next two months.[17][18] Later that year, at an October 26 show for Blaine DeSantis' Pennsylvania Championship Wrestling, Fritz Capp of PWBTS.com called Rose "one of the most improved wrestlers I have seen in a while". Rose credited his stint in MCW for his "vast improvement" as a performer.[19]

Future Wrestling Alliance (2000)[edit]

On April 15, 2000, Rose substituted for Quenan Creed, one-half of the FWA Tag Team Champions, with Gregory Martin for a title defense against The Sex Idols but ended up losing the match (and the titles);[20][21] This match was later featured on the first volume of RF Video's "Best of the Independents 2000".[22] He and Flash later won the titles from them, in a three-way dance with Mark "The Shark" Schrader and Reckless Youth, on June 3. They remained champions until the titles were retired on November 19, 2000;[6] their last match was a 6-man War Games-style "Steel Cage Rage" match with Jake Daniels against Don Montoya, Dino Divine, and Mike Quackenbush on the final episode of FWA TV.[9]

Eastern Wrestling Federation / Hardway Wrestling (1999-2001)[edit]

During this time, Rose was also competing for The Bad Crew's Eastern Wrestling Federation (later Hardway Wrestling) in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. One of his first major appearances for the promotion was at the "Cage Terror" supercard where he appeared in the "Cage of Terror" main event with Adam Flash, Jay Love, LA Smooth, Little Running Bear, and The Hungarian Barbarian against the Bad Crew, Pinky, Tiny, Dirty Deeds, and George Anthony in a barbed-wire steel cage match; at "Cage Terror II" he teamed with the Bad Crew and Kronus to face Adam Flash, The Hungarian Barbarian, L.A. Smooth, and Sal Bellomo in another "Cage Of Terror" match. On December 18, 1998, less than a month after losing the MEWF title, Rose defeated EWF Heavyweight Champion The Hungarian Barbarian to become the new champion.

His year-long reign as EWF Heavyweight Champion was briefly interrupted when Rose lost the title to the Flamingo Kid on November 12, 1999, though he regained it at EWF's "Year End Mayhem" a week later. The latter match was later featured on RF Video's "Best of Indy 1999".[23]

On January 14, 2000, he defeated Adam Flash at "An Evening at the Garfield" in Northampton, Pennsylvania. A rematch weeks later saw his second and final reign as EWF Heavyweight Champion end on January 28, when he was beaten by Flash. He also lost the NCW Heavyweight Championship to Flash in a 3-way ladder match with Romeo Valentino in Red Lion, Pennsylvania the following month.[24] Despite this, he had impressive matches against Greg Martin[25] and Mongoose at EWF's "Reading Invasion" in Reading, Pennsylvania.

During the next two months, Rose feuded with The Hungarian Barbarian[26] [27] meeting him at EWF's "Hardcore Night" (March 24), "Ed Apgar Benefit Blowout" (April 28), and "Borders Brawl" (May 27). He also wrestled Pinky The Flamingo Kid at the July 21 "Summer Spectacular 2000" supercard and Zaackk Lee (with Adam Tude) at an EWF house show on August 11. "Dirty Deeds" Darren Wyse was his cornerman for this match. He also wrestled Flash and The Hungarian Barbarian in a 3-way ladder match.[26]

After another match against The Hungarian Barbarian at "Looks can be Deceiving" on September 15, Rose turned his attentions towards Pinky the Flamingo Kid. He met Pinky at that year's "Cage Terror III"[28] and in Pennsburg, Pennsylvania on November 25.[29] He also appeared on the promotion's syndicated television series, "Eastern Wrestling Federation TV", against such opponents as John Kronus, George Anthony, and The Butcher with whom he would later feud over the hardcore championship.[30] At the two-day "Cage Terror IV" supercard, Rose defeated Dino Divine in back-to-back appearances, their second bout being a steel cage match. He and Adam Flash, with Allison Danger in their corner, also wrestled against Dino Divine and Redneck Billy Redwood on "Hardway TV". One of his last appearance for the promotion, also on "Hardway TV", was with Flash in a tag team match against Beauty & The Beast (Love Bug & Marshal Law).[31]

Pennsylvania / Premier Wrestling Federation (2001-2002)[edit]

In early-2001, Rose started wrestling for the Pennsylvania Wrestling Federation. On March 15, 2001, Rose appeared on its debut show in a Triple Threat match against Leatherface and Bret Thomas.[32]

Within a month, he had reformed his tag team with Adam Flash called "The Rachies". One of their first matches together was against The S.A.T. (Jose Maximo and Joel Maximo) in Pottstown, Pennsylvania on April 12.[33] During the next few months, they also faced Divine Storm (Chris Divine & Quiet Storm)[34] and Ox Hogg & James Proper.[35][36] On August 15, 2001, he and Rose wrestled The New Heavenly Bodies (Vito DeNucci and Chris Nelson) at the PWF's "Tradition Rulz 2001" for the NWA World Tag Team Championship.[37][38]

Rose also took part in singles match over the summer. He challenged Steve Corino at a show for Valley Championship Wrestling in Plymouth, Pennsylvania[39] and entered the PWF's "Legacy Cup" tournament on September 19. He defeated Amazing Red in the opening rounds[40] but was eliminated by Christopher Daniels in the semi-finals.[41][42][43]

On October 3, The Rachies defeated The S.A.T. for the PWF Universal Tag Team Championship at the PWF's "An Evening To Remember" in Pottstown, Pennsylvania.[44] They successfully defended the titles against The Damned (Mad Dog and Draven), the first-ever PWF tag team champions, at "Halloween Mayhem" on October 17, 2001[45] but lost the belts to The Damned (Mad Dog and Draven) in a three-way match with The S.A.T. a month later.[46][47]

Their last match together was on February 24, 2002, against Matt Vandal and The Rockin' Rebel in Pottstown.[48] Rose was involved in a three-way feud with Flash and Rockin' Rebel by the summer. On May 5, he wrestled both men in a 3-way dance at PWF's "The Last Stampede"[49] and Rebel in singles competition at "Lockdown in Pottstown" on June 9, 2002.[50] Prior to leaving the promotion, The Rachies were supposed to reunite at the PWF's July 14 show in Pottstown to face The SAT.[51]

Combat Zone Wrestling (2001-2003)[edit]

Rose made his CZW début at "The Boss Is Back" on April 7, 2001, teaming with Jeff Rocker in a three-way tag team match against V.D. (Eddie Valentine & Jon Dahmer) and The Briscoe Brothers (Jay and Mark Briscoe).[52][53] He and Rocker would face the Briscoes at CZW's "Un'FN'Believable" the following month.[54][55][56] Rose's appearance at CZW’s first Best of the Best tournament saw he and Rocker team with Adam Flash in a 6-man tag team match against Ruckus and V.D. (Eddie Valentine & Jon Dahmer).[57][58]

Rose began regularly teaming with Flash after this point, the two also teaming in the PWF at this time, and began feuding with V.D. (Eddie Valentine & Jon Dahmer). They faced V.D. at "Break Away Brawl" (June 9)[59] "A New Beginning" (July 7),[60] and "H-8 Club Dead?" (July 14),[61][62] and in a three-way match with The Softcore Connection (Nick Berk and Z-Barr) at "What About Lobo?" (July 28).[63][64] Shortly after their match against Ty Street and Nick Berk at the September 8th "September Slam" show,[65] the team split up (though they continued to team in the PWF winning the tag team titles a month later). On September 29, he wrestled Adam Flash in a singles match at "Enough is Enough".[66] He continued competing as a singles wrestler and was immediately drawn into a feud with Greg Matthews from WWE Tough Enough.[67][68] He faced Matthews at "And Justice For All" on October 27, 2001,[69] and briefly reunited with Adam Flash to wrestle Matthews and Billy Beater in a tag team match at "Accepting The Challenge" on January 12, 2002.[70][71] Their five-month-long feud was concluded in an "I Quit" match at "A Higher Level of Pain" on April 13.[72][73] Other matches during this time included a three-way dance with Max Fury and Z-Barr at "High Stakes"[74][75] and Rainman at "Deja Vu" two days later.[76]

At the end of a September 14 CZW show at the ECW Arena, an interpromotional event with CZW and IWA Mid-South, Rose was among the CZW wrestlers who joined owners Lobo and Zandig in an anti-Xtreme Pro Wrestling demonstration. Prior to entering the ring, he had grabbed a large "F@$# Rob Black" sign from the crowd to bring with him.[77]

His last two appearances for CZW were arguably his bloodiest. At September 28's "Sanctioned in Blood", The Rachies and Z-Barr wrestled Wifebeater and Nate Hatred in a Ultraviolent Death Match which included the use of barbed wire boards, light tubes, log cabins of glass, barbed wire pumpkins, and other various hardcore wrestling weapons.[78] CZW's Cage of Death IV supercard saw Rose in a 10-man elimination tag team match with Rockin' Rebel, Greg Matthews, GQ, and Chri$ Ca$h versus Adam Flash, Jon Dahmer, Ian Knoxx, Chris Stylz, and Derek Frazier.[79]

At "Truth or Consequences", The Rachies and Ian Knoxx took on The Rebel's Army (Greg Matthews, Derek Frazier and ZBarr) in 6-man tag team match on June 14, 2003. During the match, ZBarr was "fired" by Rockin' Rebel and subsequently abandoned by the group allowing Flash to pin ZBarr for the win.[80]

The Rebel's Army (2004-2005)[edit]

After leaving CZW, Rose formed an alliance with The Rockin' Rebel[81] and WWE Tough Enough's Greg Matthews as part of The Rebel's Army on the independent circuit. On August 14, 2004, Rose and his teammates appeared at the Silo Nightclub in Reading, Pennsylvania for the IWA's tribute show for longtime wrestling fans Richie Mershon and George Huddleston. A ten-bell salute at the show's opening was interrupted by State Athletic Commission representative with Al Snow taking the microphone to call out The Rebels Army who were the only wrestlers in the building not present for the salute. Rebel's Army confronted Snow with a fight breaking out between Greg Matthews and his former trainer. Rose and Rebel were also set to join in the attack on Snow before Psycho, a local fan favorite, ran to the ring on Snow's behalf resulting in an impromptu tag team main event. After losing their match to Snow and Psycho, Rapid Fire Maldonado joined in for a post-match brawl to help Snow and Psycho clear the ring of The Rebel's Army.[82]

The group faced the Soul Brothers, One in a Million (with Jaden), and The Trash Clan (C.J. O'Doyle and Cabbie) (with Mike Trash) in a 4-way "Tag Team Warfare" match at "Indymania II: The Battle Against Cancer" held in Hamburg, Pennsylvania on October 9, 2004. The match was for the WcIcW Tag Team Championship.[83] He also appeared with Adam Flash, Matt Striker, and Andrew Ryker for an Independent Championship Wrestling show on July 10, 2005, at the Plaza Flea Market in Northpoint, Maryland.[84]

Blackball'd Wrestling Organization (2006-2007)[edit]

Starting in early-2006, Rose began working for the Blackball'd Wrestling Organization in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania. He was also an instructor at the promotion's Top Gun Wrestling Academy along with The Rockin' Rebel, Maverick, Norm, and Glen Osbourne.[85] On May 20, Rose defeated Greg Matthews in a qualifying match at the BWO's "Spring Cleaning" to meet Rockin' Rebel for the BWO Heavyweight Championship at the Top Gun Wrestling Academy on June 24 "Movin' On",[86] a match which he won.[87]

The following month, Rose took on Team Blackball'd (Rockin' Rebel & "Tough Enough" Greg Matthews) and Frankie Frizzo in a Fatal Four Way match on August 26. After the referee was knocked out by Rebel during an argument, Mr. Jester and Sgt. Smith entered the ring to attack Rebel and Matthews. Their interference allowed Rose to pin Frankie Frizzo after a second referee, Mark "Scorpion" Griffin, ran in to continue officiating the match.[88][89] He was originally scheduled to defend his title against Glen Osbourne at the BWO's "School's In Session"[90] though this was later changed to Dr. Spider who he defeated to retain the BWO Heavyweight title. He later ended up facing Osbourne at "Thanksgiving Thunder" on November 24. He and Norm had wrestled in a tag team match against Blackball’d (with newly appointed BWO Commissioner Seemor Money) earlier that night when Rose suddenly turned on his partner and joined his former enemies. The trio also beat down Mr. Jester and Sgt. Smith, attempting to rescue Norm, as did Glen Osbourne. The two wrestled in the main event with Rose coming out the victor. That same month, he also headlined a National Championship Wrestling show in York, Pennsylvania with Tito Santana, Matt Hyson, Sal Sincere, and Darren Wyse.[91]

His next opponent was to be Kage at the year-end supercard "Christmas Chaos: Part 2" on December 30, 2006,[85] however, an injury forced him to surrender the title at the event instead.[87] Rose regained the title less than a month later, on January 20, 2007, when he won a battle royal at BWO's "The New Breed" to face Zac Conner for the BWO championship in the main event. His second title reign ended at "Winter Challenge" on February 24 where he lost to Glen Osbourne at the Top Gun Wrestling Academy.[87]

Recent years (2010-)[edit]

On July 10, 2010, Rose returned to the former ECW Arena for Acid-Fest: A Tribute to Trent Acid in South Philadelphia. He was among the several CZW alumni at the event[92][93][94] which saw a reunion of sorts of with The Rebels Army (The Rockin' Rebel & Greg Matthews).[95] A year later, Rose took part in another memorial show, A Nightmare To Remember, held at the Bay Springs Middle School in Villa Rica, Georgia on February 12, 2011. Proceeds from the show went to Allen's mother and the Ted Allen "Sunshine Fund" while the concession stand sales went to the middle school. At the event, he participated in a special royal rumble that included Jess Wade, JJ Grizzly, Michael Cross, Jay Clinton, Greg G-Smooth, Prettyboy Floyd, Alexander the Great, John Arden, J-Rod, TJ Gray, Great Yugo, Scott Prater, Frenchy Riviera, George South, Dr. DOA, Epic Grant, Keith Steinborn, Seth Cruise, JW Christian, Sal Rinauro, Ken Timbs, Jr. and Hot Like Lava (Cru Jones and Shawn Banks).[96]
