On Friday night June 7th Showcase Pro Wrestling returns to the SPW Arena and Training center located at 126 Main Street Woonsocket, for a very special occasion. The Showcase roster and their fans will be celebrating the 40th anniversary in Professional Wrestling of their trainer, mentor, and hall of famer Sgt. Muldoon.
Muldoon started in the wrestling business on June 4, 1979 at the Salem, Massachusetts YMCA under the watchful eye of Walter Killer Kowalski.

He also wrestled through Canada, The Middle East, and Puerto Rico.

Muldoon. Muldoon stepped out of the spotlight in 1999 due to a hip injury which would result in a hip replacement. He continued to mentor and guide young wrestlers around New England until he joined the Showcase Pro Wrestling training center as a manager/trainer in 2011. Highlights of his career include the incarnation of the International Wrestling Federation (IWF) which was the promotion that produced the Bedlam from Boston wrestling show on Channel 25. Wrestling Hulk Hogan at a sold out Boston garden in 1981, and being one of only nine wrestlers to wrestle the Iron Sheik when he was the WWF Champion in the early 1990s Muldoon simultaneously held both the New England Heavyweight title, and the New England Tag Team Championship for a period of 18 months.
