Unlimited Class Wrestling Federation
The Unlimited Class Wrestling Federation is an association for proffestional wrestlers who possess superhuman stregth, endurance and resistance to injury. The U.C.W.F was founded by wrestling manager and promoter EdwardGarner after a client of his was banned from the existing wrestling association for being too strong and thus a danger to normal human-strength combatants. Garner reasoned that if he could find enough suitable opponents for his fighter, he could start his own wrestling club, with public exhibitions certain to be more spectacular than the regular bouts. Garner held several highly publicised auditions in Las Vegas, and soon began to sign up a roster of suitable wrestlers.
Originally, to qualify to the U.C.W.F, an applicant must be able to lift a minimum of two tons. When Garner began finding people who could lift significantly more than two tons, he organised weight divisions within the federation to keep fighters well matched.
- The lightweight division is for wrestlers who can lift in the 2-10 ton range.
- The middleweight division is for wrestlers who can lift in the 10-25 ton range.
- The heavyweight division is for wrestlers who can lift in the 25 ton plus range.
In the brief time the U.C.W.F has been in existance, Garner has been phasing out the lower weight divisions as more fighters are being found to qualify for the heavyweight division. At present, one must be able to lift 25 tons to even be considered to qualify for entry into the U.C.W.F.
Many of the original wrestlers who joined the federation were of the Deviant or Eternal evolutionary offshoots of humanity, or they were super-human mutants. Some had been sparring in the normal proffesional wrestling circuits before the U.C.W.F was founded but had to hide the impressive strength levels. Later, normal human beings who had had themselves artificially enhanced began to join. Many of these people were augmented by Power Broker Inc, a company specialising in the physical enhancement of human beings. Prior to servicing wrestlers who wanted to qualify for the U.C.W.F, the Power Broker provided criminals with superhuman henchmen. Garner, who has been known to fix fights on occasion, claims to have no connection with Power Broker, although many members of his federation seem to profit from Power Brokers services. The U.C.W.F seems to be the one of the few legitimate ways Power Broker can pay for the augmentation Process. Certain wrestlers have undergone the augmentation process more than once as the power requirements for the federation become more strict. Virtually all the wrestlers assume stage names and wear colorful costumes similar to most super human adventurers and crimefighters, although very few hide their real identities.
The U.C.W.F gained widespread publicity when Benjamin Grimm (Thing of the Fantastic Four) joined the circuit for a brief time. The Thing was not only the U.C.W.F's top attraction, he was also the undefeated champion for a time. He forfeited the championship when he purposefully threw an exhibition bout with Battleaxe, a member of the U.C.W.F's female division known as the grapplers. For personal reasons, the Thing dropped out of the U.C.W.F as short time later bringing Garner's attention to the Power Brokers investment in the wrestlers.
The U.C.W.F remains a thriving business enterprise of unprecendend mass popularity, In a world filled with super human men and women the Unlimited Class Wrestlers are the only such beings that the average person can pay to see at arenas all over the country.
