Josh McCool (born December 10, 1982 in Salem, Oregon) is an American professional wrestler who has previously performed for the Atlantic Wrestling Association (AWA) and the Southeast Wrestling Federation (SWF).

Brief Biography[]

Josh McCool grew up in Oregon, and was an All-State football player and wrestler under the tutelage of Russell Ziset, who would later move on to the AWA himself. As a popular member of the team, McCool had several run-ins with Ziset as he represented the view of the team, including one famous altercation involving an injury that Ziset saw as letting the team down. He went on to attend the University of Oregon for a term before making his move into the world of professional wrestling, becoming the youngest wrestler in the AWA. He quickly amassed a 10-0 record, including a victory over Ziset in a retirement match, before the original AWA folded, then made his way to the Southeast Wrestling Federation, where he was a franchise player and title holder before his run was ended due to disagreements with the rumoredly corrupt administration. He compiled an 25-7-1 record in the AWA's most recent incarnation, including his first Heavyweight title reign. He has since been earning his degree and waiting for the right moment to make his glorious return to the ring.
