In May 2002 former stars of the Universal Wrestling Alliance Y2J1100 and Nick the Funkmaster announced that they had been secretly training ten students and that these students, along with them and a few others, would form the roster of Reddit Championship Wrestling. Why this was the name, no one was quite sure, but they played along anyway.
Those ten students seemed to be just like any of the men who walked into pro wrestling. Young, naive, some of them assholes, but little did anyone know they would wind up having very, very interesting careers. Some reached the top of the world, some became kings of puro, some wallowed around as reliable indie jobbers, but all of them had interesting careers. So sit down, and I'll tell you their story.
Road Warriors Season 1: Episode 1 (May 2002 to December 2002)
RCW launched on Saturday, Week 3, May 2002. This was the night the Road Warriors made their debuts and since this is an important show, here is the results in full.
Reddit Championship Wrestling Night of Rage
At the North Amherst Rec Center in front of 28 People!
Rough, rough day at the office. I feel bad for everyone involved. But, the warriors somehow got other work based on these matches, while The Funkmaster decided to stay in RCW and bury everyone involved. Let's look at what was achieved this year.
WORKER #1: Arthur Collins
The Irishman had a good STRONG STYLE year, going from losing to Micheal Dunn on the opener to feuding with Johnny Bahamas over the world title for the better part of the year. Collins also journeyed to NOAH where he is getting good experience working with some good workers.
Employment History: RCW (May 2002 to Present), Pro Wrestling NOAH (August 2002 to Present

Top 3 Matches
Collins has shown a good rise in his puro skills, as well as basics and psychology.
WORKER #2: Dallas Steele
The Immculate one started the year losing to Johnny Bahamas in the RCW World Title match. He feuded with Bahamas, filing to capture the belt before starting a winning streak beating Ron Killings, Tyler Emerson and The Funkmaster. Dallas also went to NOAH where he is starting to improve his skills. However, in his match with Funkmaster at RCW Powerslave, Dallas suffered a Damaged Ligament in his knee and will be out of action until May 2003.
