Backyard Wrestling Tenure

Wrestling Championship Federation (1999-2005)

In January 1999, Joe Randa began wrestling for fun with friends and family. He and his friends at first would just mimic there favorite professional wrestlers and imitate their moves on one another. Eventually they started their own gimmicks and decided on their own names. Randa started out with the name Mr. Wonderful, replicating Mr. Perfect Curt Hennig. Randa won the WCF Title on 6 occasions. WCF last wrestled in June of 2005 with its last show being Armed & Dangerous.

Xtreme Wrestling Alliance (Feb. 2005-June 2005)

Championship Wrestling Association (July 2005-Nov. 2008)

Round Lake Syndicate Wrestling (2008-2009)

On November 9, 2008, after Randa ceased wrestling in the shuttered CWA federation, he travelled to New York with members of CWA to wrestle his last anticipated dream match in backyard wrestling as part of RLSW No Remorse 3 and lost against NECW's PJ Matthews. However, Randa eventually returned to the practice following professional training at an independent promotion. In early 2009, the CWA crew returned to RLSW at the CWA vs. RLSW ft. NECW supershow. Randa competed against Matthews once again at RLSW No Remorse 4 on July 18, 2009, the last RLSW event.
