Imagine, for a second, that aliens were real and that they came to Earth. Not to be our friends, but to conquer it. Look around you…see any super heroes? Neither do I. Now, sure, we could throw the Armed Forces of the entire world at them (maybe, if all got along), but what if all it took was a group of men and women that could be passed off as super heroes? What if instead of cannon fodder and casualties, we told them that we had powerful men and women that could beat them in combat? Yep. We sent professional wrestlers to deal with them. Welcome to the GWP. Galaxy Wrestling Pro. A federation made up of humans and aliens alike. When dealing with a world wide threat, who do you throw at the aliens? The best “talker” in the biz. The World Champion. I mean, he is the WORLD champion (one of 7), so that’s gotta count for something, right? Ford Knox (real name Richard Knochs) is more or less thrown into this mess. He sure doesn’t want to leave the comforts of Earth (women, limos, upscale clothing, etc). And he’s going to do his best to get back to his world. Because of this, he’s considered the heel of the group. But the GWP offers him the opportunity to do something no man (or woman) has ever done in the history of professional wrestling… He can be the GWP Universe Champion. The Universe is bigger than the World, right?
