Big signings highlight 2121 as Euritar moves to CPC and Mensar returns. Prodigy decides to shake things up by eliminating groups. This led to many tough choices like Killer Queen sticking with Zed Marlowe, angering Gunnar. Dr. Barnabas decided to let Rubicon and Desdemona go on their own, but it meant losing total control of him which would become an issue later. Lots of feuds shifted with the breaking of teams. Mike Fortune continued to act mysteriously in his semi-retirement by inserting himself into the Shylok/Cypher feud. The Punks dropped J.J. Smooth and Olivia Swinden.

The big news of course is the sale of the CPC to Fausus Grael. With that, big changes come in store to the federation including a name change. Tiberius Prell is out as commissioner as Jack Hood gets the job. MMA is added to the wrestling which means guys like Shylock and Cypher are even more at home while others flounder from the changes. Shylock however has his old partner and enemy finally back as Saboteur returns. Ahnu returns to feud with Thayne and make sure that the Jardil feud continues. The strangest wrestler ever debuted calling itself Nano and looking to play. Yuri wanted to go back to being Gordo leading Sergei to change his image to Silas the most Russian redneck you'll ever meet.

More shakeups hit POW as new members join, teams return, and the Jardill storyline nears a crescendo. Talisman convinced Indigo that he is dying and wants to appoint Indigo as the new leader of the True Way convincing him to join the group. He also brings in the big Zealot. To counter, Absalom and Raze add Benedict who was recruited by Talisman for the true way but decided that Talisman was a big liar. Conundrum made a major impact by forcing Stigma to join him and then attacking long time enemy Cypher. The strangest alliance perhaps ever formed as Nano brought in Macro to the fed and joined up with Mad Jester and J.J. Smooth to combat Franco's group. Raven made a stunning return as Hanuman turned on Gila. Hanuman is now managed by Raven while Gila recruited Quetzal to battle his former charge. Major retirements come as Jack of Diamonds, Killer Queen and Mike Fortune all hang up their boots, while Talon and Serpentine search for other pastures.

Rookies Aethran Overmaster: at 7'0 400 lbs this monster from Aethra is an immediate impact player. With a power rating of -5, two Add 1 moves and a roll finisher he is well positioned to be a very dangerous force
Ensor: at 5'10 235 lbs and hailing from Mars, this import from the GWFZ is a strong addition to the FDF legacy squad. Solid Level 3 Offense and a +3 finisher could make him a sleeper
Hector the Holy Brown: 6'4 289 lbs from Parts Unknown. This man of many names carries main event level stats, with this arguably representing his finest incarnation
Mantis: at 6' 240 lbs this second generation star from Andromeda 2 debuts with an impressive rookie card. Mantis carries a unique defensive mechanic that can convert disadvantage into a high end counter

In 2002 Filsinger Games launched a new brand into its line up called Legends of Wrestling. Through the help of organizations such as the Cauliflower Alley Club, LOW sought to provide an outlet that honored the history of pro wrestling figures, both past and present. The initial box set contained 24 cards (with artwork was handled by Sonny Strait and Chuck Carter), six action charts, a rulebook, and a pair of six sided dice. The Legends of Wrestling booklet is written as a 'program' with brief biographies for each of the wrestlers and a mock wrestling card line up written on the back.
The Legends of Wrestling Instruction Book provides an overview of game play mechanics, along with rules for several specialty matches (Texas Death, Cage, 6/8 Man Tags, Loser Leaves Town, Brass Knuckles, Tag Team Elimination & Battle Royal)
Perhaps the first great world champion, Frank Gotch was an incredible talent known for his incredible submission maneuvers as well as his ability to defeat opponents even larger than himself. He has a major feud in George Hackenschmidt who claims that Gotch used dirty tactics to hold on to his title against him.
The original Nature Boy styled and profiled for many years in wrestling. He was one of the greatest ever on the mic. He has had so many legendary matches with competitors in LOW, it would be impossible to name them all. One of his later accomplishments was helping Jimmy Snuka turn face at the expense of Captain Lou Albano.
The legendary 7 time NWA champion Harley Race had one of the greatest careers in wrestling ever. Few could compete with his competing in multiple territories. He was also one of the first guys to actually slam Andre the Giant.
Nick was one of the greatest AWA champions ever. With Bobby "The Brain" Heenan, he dominated the AWA in the 1970's. He had a legendary partnership with Ray Stevens as well. His last title reign ended via shenanigans by Curt Hennig and Larry Zbyszko. Now Nick can get revenge against the two that cost him his belt.
One of the first exotic showmen in wrestling, Gorgeous George helped to bring a new showmanship to the sport. He was one of the first to use music in the sport (Pomp and Circumstance no less. Made famous at graduations and Randy Savage matches the world over) and also was famous for his valets including Cheri Dupre
The Million Dollar Man shows that every LOW has a price. With his bodyguard, Virgil, he plans to show everyone that you can't keep the Million Dollar Man from the top title and anyone who doesn't believe him will go down with a Million Dollar Dream.
Baba is one of the top stars from Japan. He helped to form All Japan wrestling and was a 3 time NWA champion. He also teamed up with legendary wrestlers like Antonio Inoki, The Destroyer, and Andre the Giant.
Part of one of the top tag teams ever, Animal was true power as the Road Warriors often ran roughshod over their opponents. As a team, The Roadies would hold the AWA, NWA, and WWF tag team titles. Even after Hawk's passing, Animal would get one more run as a WWE tag team champion.
After being trained by Verne Gagne, The Iron Sheik wrestled under another identity before taking his name after the Iranian hostage crisis. He shocked the world by winning the WWF title in 1983 before losing it a short time later to Hulk Hogan. From there, he was a steady hand especially teaming up with Nikolai Volkoff. Nowadays, he's mostly famous for his drug fueled rants about anything and everything.
Volkoff is a Russian powerhouse who had a long successful career especially in tag team wrestling. He was International Tag Team Champions as a member of the Mongols and then later held the WWF tag titles with The Iron Sheik. He also teamed up with Ivan Koloff, Boris Zhukov and Ted DiBiase at various points in his career as well as Jim Duggan in a face turn near the end of his career.
Bobo was perhaps the first major black superstar and broke the long standing if silent racism where black wrestlers did not face white wrestlers. His career spanned decades and is most famous for his bloody super violent with The Sheik especially in Detroit.
An early master of the claw hold, Kowalski is most famous for a match versus Yukon Eric where he accidentally ripped off part of Eric's year attempting a bombs away knee drop. Now, in LOW, you can relive that match or just have revenge match ups due to it.
Valentine was considered to be one of the best wrestlers ever. He had the ability to always make it look real especially with his hard chops, forearms and elbow smashes. He was at the top of his game when a plane crash cut his career short.
King Kong was a major fan of COTG when he became the second guy to sign up for Legends. He is most famous for squashing S.D. Jones and Little Beaver at different Wrestlemanias, but had a long and varied career in wrestling and television
A legendary tag wrestler who has had success over many years with many tag partners, Bastien brings his high flying tactics to LOW. He has formed championship teams with Billy Red Lyons, Pepper Gomez and The Crusher among others.
The mysterious masked man from parts unknown was a legend in the Buffalo/Cleveland area as well as having big runs in the AWA (as Dr. X) and Los Angeles but was also a giant in Japan where he helped Giant Baba create All Japan Wrestling. He has also attended Galacticon where his birthday was celebrated one year.
The Playboy was a major star in the Pacific Northwest for years as well as an AWA World Tag Team champion. He was billed as a lean mean 217 even after it became obvious he was nowhere near the weight. Sadly, the WWF chose to use him as a jobber but he can pull off a win against nearly anyone in LOW.
The Hammer was the first wrestler to sign with LOW. In fact he even had a short run in the GWF as well. Hated by fans of the game for missing conventions with lame excuses, his poster is still ripped up each year at Galacticon.

In 2003, Filsinger Games released the followup to its first release under the Legends of Wrestling brand. Legends Rematch was a 12 card edition with artwork by Sonny Strait and Chuck Carter. The booklet contains rules for a Dog Collar Match.
Roster Bios/Video References Bobby Eaton 6'0 233 lbs Huntsville, AL
As both a singles wrestler and a tag wrestler, Bobby Eaton has had a lot of success in his career. Often managed by Jim Cornette, he was a former World Tag Champion (with Dennis Condrey and Stan Lane), U.S Tag Team Champion (with Lane), Television Champion and has held assorted titles over his career. Now you can choose your preferred Midnight Express combo or make them a three member unit ala the Freebirds.
Sweet Stan Lane has had much success over the years, but his most famous time is as a member of the Midnight Express (version 2) managed by Jim Cornette. Among their great feuds, the one with the Road Warriors stands out as one that is reborn in LOW.
The Louisville Lip is one of the most gifted talkers in wrestling as well as being one of its most successful managers. With his famous tennis racket, he's always up to leading teams to gold. Among his proteges in LOW are Bobby Eaton, Stan Lane, Dennis Condrey, Tom Prichard, and Sherri Martel.
Mil was a legendary wrestler not only in his native Mexico, but the United States and Japan as well. His high flying abilities were often copied in the United States and he has held many titles in his long career.
Bob Orton might be more famous as father of Randy Orton, but he also had a long solid career and was perhaps the #3 heel in the mid 80s for the WWF. He also had a successful tag team with Magnificent Muraco.
Brunzell has had a long successful career in tag team wrestling. He also had a good feud with Nick Bockwinkel before moving to the WWF to be one of the top teams in the 80s to never hold the tag team titles.
The most homicidal, suicidal, genocidal wrestler today, Sabu has been known for his high flying moves and death defying dives from the beginning. Trained by his uncle, The Sheik, Sabu has been a top wrestler especially in ECW. He also formed a legendary tag team with Rob Van Dam.
Known for his colorful tights, demeanor and bird, Koko was one of the top undercarders for the WWF newcomers to get a boost on their way up the ladder. Early in his career, he was allied with a young Bobby Eaton.
Hacksaw was one of the legendary wrestlers in Mid South and also had a good run in the WWF before eventually winning the U.S. title and Television title in WCW. His feuds are legendary and include Ted DiBiase, One Man Gang, Iron Sheik, Nikolai Volkoff and Andre the Giant.
The legendary wrestler turned manager arrives in Legends. Probably the most versatile manager in Legends, easily able to manage faces or heels, The Cap was a specialist in tag managing. Among others in Legends he managed at one time-Ivan Koloff, Killer Kowalski (as an Executioner), Masked Superstar II (as an Executioner), Greg Valentine, and many more options as well.

Bruiser Brody was one of the most independent guys ever in wrestling. He competed just about everywhere. He was a legend in Japan, and wrestled all over the U.S. as well. He hated being tied down by promoters who would often try to cheat him. His career and life were tragically cut short after an argument in Puerto Rico led to his death via stabbing. In LOW, Brody lives on, going wild on either side of the fence allowing him to be a big attraction anywhere.
The madman from Syria dominated Detroit for years. He was a multiple time U.S. champion and had one of the bloodiest feuds ever with Bobo Brazil. He competed forever and was responsible for training both Sabu and Rob Van Dam.
Known as The Russian Lion (despite being from Estonia), Hackenschmidt was one of the most famous power wrestlers of his day. He started the tradition of bear hugs being a Russian maneuver and had an incredible feud with fellow LOW vintage wrestler Frank Gotch.
Dewey Robertson was once a great scientific wrestler, but late in his career, he decided to completely remodel himself into a prehistoric caveman character, and The Missing Link was the result. He is a wild man who is prone to using a chair and is known for his hard head and vicious head butts.
One of the top masked men ever, Superstar had a legendary career under many guises, but his top was as the dreaded Masked Superstar. He also formed a brief all star tag team with Masked Superstar II in Mid-Atlantic
Despite his diminutive size, Mad Dog Vachon was an incredible star both in tag wrestling (both with his brother and other partners) and in singles wrestling. Considered one of the greatest heels of all times, you can use him equally well in singles and tag action.
Chris Candido might be small in stature but he makes up for it with a high projecting ego. Known for his surprising power despite his small size and high flying skills, his greatest asset might be his manager Tammy Sytch.
From preliminary wrestler P.J. Walker to ECW superstar Justin Credible, it was a big change. He would take on The Sandman's Singapore cane gimmick which would lead to an eventual feud. He would also form an alliance with Steve Corino calling themselves The New Impact Players.
Ellering is the legendary manager of the Road Warriors. He's also a fair hand in the ring. He has also managed King Kong Bundy. He's had a good feud with Jim Cornette and 6 man tag matches between Ellering and The Road Warriors against Cornette and Midnight Express are sure to be a big hit.
The Brain is a legendary figure known for managing some of the top talent of all time. Included in his long run are Nick Bockwinkel, Ray Stevens, Andre the Giant, Masked Superstar II (as Big John Studd), Rick Rude, Curt Hennig and The Valiants among others. Most consider Bobby the greatest manager of all time.

Legends Vintage represents the fourth release in the LOW library. This set consists of 12 cards (eleven with wrestling stats, and Michael Gary Capetta with an Announcer Card chart). Artwork was handled by Sonny Strait.
The legendary Strangler was one of the biggest stars in the early days of wrestling, holding a virtual monopoly on the NWA title for years with his dreaded headlock. He also kept John Pesek as an enforcer to make sure he held his title. One of his major opponents was Jim Londos who would eventually claim the title.
Billy Red brings a new tag partner for both Red Bastien and Dewey Robertson. With Bastien, he formed the Flying Redheads. With Robertson, they were known as the Crusaders. He's also famous for his time as an interviewer and announcer in Toronto.
A fluke injury assured Yukon Eric a place in history. He had heavily cauliflowered ears and when Kowalski delivered his bombs away knee drop, it tore off part of the ear. Though Kowalski was apologetic in person, he played it up to the writers, leading to long term fame for both men. Now in LOW, you can have the feud explode all over again.
The Beast was as well known at the time for his MMA fighting, but he was also an NWA champion and had a run in the WWF as well. He won the first vote (over Danny Doring) on what card should be in a set.
Konnan has had a lot of looks and gimmicks in his storied career. His LOW card focuses on his time with the nWo. He can surprise you with aerial tactics as well as a bit of power and is a solid midcarder for any federation.
Women invader Legends with the addition of the Sensational One. Sherri is not only well versed as a wrestler, but she is also a great manager as well. She was with Ted DiBiase for a period in the WWF and managed Buddy Rose as well.
One of the lesser known names in LOW but Ida Mae was quite important as one of the first well known women's wrestlers. Her style might be fairly basic but she can give any woman in Legends a run for her money.

For a latecomer into the wrestling aspect of the sport, DDP would become one of the most successful wrestlers there holding the WCW World and World Tag Team Titles. He would also demonstrate his abilities to hit the Diamond Cutter out of nowhere leading to an innovative mechanic on his card.
The certified beach bum was one of the top heels in the WWF in the early 80s before the birth of Hulkamania. He was a two time Intercontinetal Champion and had a legendary feud with Jimmy Snuka which culminated with a Superfly Splash from the top of the cage.
The Ravishing One actually got his start not in wrestling, but in arm wrestling. Eventually, he trained to become a wrestler and had a legendary career. Among highlights were being the first World Class champion, being an NWA World Tag Team champion, holding the Intercontinental Title as well as the United States title in WCW. Unfortunately, a freak injury ended his career too soon, but in LOW, The Ravishing One can make the sweaty hogs sit down while he takes his robe off to show us all what a real man can do in the ring.
The beer drinking brawler not only had a cup of tea as AWA World Champion but also was a multiple time tag team champion with several partners including Red Bastien. He had major feuds with Harley Race, Larry Hennig and The Vachons among others.
Also known as Youssuf Ishamelo, Terrible Turk (one of three to work under the name) was one of the first world champions. He was known for his great power and size (especially for the era) and brought in one of the first illegal finishers into wrestling.
Hodge was the top cruiserweight in America for years. Legitimately tough and having a great college background, he dominated the junior heavyweight title for years. Now in Legends you can have him face off vs Tiger Mask and Jushin Liger to determine the best ever.
The Living Legend has had a long successful career in the squared circle. Known for his stalling tactics, Larry Z has been in every major promotion including the AWA in its dying days where he held the world title as well as being a WCW World Tag champion and a Television champion as well.
The Old School superstar like to show off his skills but he can be dirty as they come often restoring to using weapons at ringside. He can take a lot of punishment, but eventually he can wear down at a crucial point in the match.
Bringing another aspect to LOW for the first time, Apter brings the Hot Seat Interview to Legends. Though he's more famous for the magazines he worked on, Bill also did some interviewing and will bring tough questions especially to the heels and pandemonium might well ensue.

The founder of the Fabulous Kangaroos, Costello and Heffernan formed a legendary tag team that dominated the Capitol Sports product in the early days. Through them, tag matches were often referred to as Australian Rules tag wrestling. With manager Red Berry, the duo is one of the top threats in LOW.
The Kangaroos have been called the #1 tag team of all time which might infuriate the Road Warriors who are the other top contender for that claim. Roy Heffernan might be the lesser known of the two, but he might well be the better wrestler.
Curt was known as Mr. Perfect for a good reason. He was an all around athlete who did everything a wrestler needed to do. He was an AWA World Tag Team champion and World Champion as well as holding titles in the WWF and WCW. He had a major feud with Nick Bockwinkel and an alliance with his own father, Larry Zbyszko and Rick Rude at various points in his career. He also employed the services of Bobby "The Brain" Heenan as well.
The legendary Axe might not have been as big a name as his son, but he also had a great career. He not only teamed up with Curt as Double Axe Attack, but also teamed up with Harley Race early in their careers to feud with The Crusher and his partner.
Condrey had a long successful career before forming the Midnight Express with Bobby Eaton and Jim Cornette. They were one of the top tag teams before personal problems caused him to leave the NWA. When he returned, his career was on the downside and he quietly left one more time. Still promoters can decide for themselves which Midnight Express team is better.
The Russian Nightmare had a long career starting in Canada and continuing thru the United States. His biggest moment was winning the WWWF heavyweight title from the legendary Bruno Sammartino. Many other belts would come his way in his long storied career as well.
Stevens was known as one of the most outrageous men in wrestling. He was an incredible bump taker who dominated San Francisco wrestling when it was a territory and later had great success in the AWA especially teaming with Nick Bockwinkel under the guidance of Bobby Heenan.
Bob was a long time solid hand in wrestling, eventually four of his sons would follow him into the sport. He was best known for teaming with his eldest son, Brad. He also had a major feud with Jim Cornette.
A former light heavyweight champion in WCW, Brad's career was a big what if as whenever it seemed they were ready to push him, something would come up. He was a solid hand though who can definitely battle especially with the cruiserweights and in tag action as well.
Ted DiBiase (black glove edition) 6'3 245 lbs Omaha, NE
Here comes a slightly different DiBiase based on his Mid South days. The style is similar though not exact, and he uses his loaded black glove as well as the figure four instead of the Million Dollar Dream to finish opponents. Black Glove DiBiase often teamed up with "Dr. Death" Steve Williams.
"Dr. Death" had a great career in wrestling both in the U.S. and in Japan. He has a hard hitting style that can level many a wrestler and power that is nearly unmatched as well. He has multiple friends in LOW especially Ted DiBiase as well as Terry Gordy who he teamed up to win many titles in Japan.
