Robbie Ellis


Robbie Ellis works today primarily for NWA on Fire and New England Championship Wrestling in the United States and Innovative Hybrid Wrestling in Nova Scotia. He also wrestles when time allows for Chikara out of Philadelphia and Italian Championship Wrestling in northern Italy. He has been the lightweight or junior heavyweight champion of several of the best independent promotions throughout New England. Recently he was invited to wrestle at the opening night wrestling show of the Cauliflower Alley Club convention on April 13, 2009 in Las Vegas promoted under Gabriel Ramirez's Revolution Pro out of California. In his career, Robbie has wrestled such legends and current stars as Bob Orton, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Raven, and many others. He has also worked alongside such current superstars on the indie circuit as Mitch Ryder, Ellis is probably most proud of his experience with Chikara. It was voted one of the top ten promotions in the world for the year 2008 by the readers of The Wrestling Observer, a prestigious honor in pro wrestling. On the rare occasions Ellis has been able to work on a Chikara card since the first time – one in Framingham, Massachusetts this year and several in Pennsylvania – the houses have been full and wildly enthusiastic. Those few occasions produced receptions by fans that bordered on shocking but have given Ellis credibility in the pro wrestling world he says he had never enjoyed before: He says, “Trust me: my talent is not at their level. I've been accused of false modesty in this regard. Trust me again: it isn't false. Although the promoter of the show wouldn't know it, Chikara is in retrospect one of the reasons, perhaps the most important reason, that I was invited to participate in the 2009 wrestling show on April 13, 2009 open to the public held each year during the Cauliflower Alley Club convention for pro wrestlers and fans in Las Vegas.”
