Solid weekend of work!

 AIWF First Class 12/5

Well there is not to much to say about this night. I decided that driving the whole 7 miles to Franklin, was to much. Eric Fallen may have wanted to call me out, Doublestuff Tom Mclain may have wanted to call me out, the no name guy that got lucky when the referee fast counted me two weeks ago may have wanted to call me out. So sorry guys and no name guy. I was busy.



Gearing up for Battle against the Titan 2 WAR Ohio.


Very comfortable in the ring. It's my home away from home!


Make that break legal kid or referee Joe Kopasz will have to call it!


All else fails, choke them out. Well, that was his plan, fortunately for me he was not successful.


He fought hard, and for a moment in time, he thought he might win.  No matter what he may have thought, if you end up on my shoulders like he is in this pic.... Lights out!


Another hard fought victory. I'm 41 years old, wrestling men literally half my age. I prove everytime I get in the ring, that I deserve to be there!

Double shot weekend

Huge weekend for the Hawk 11/5 11/6

Come out and join me @ AIWF First Class In Franklin Ohio on Friday, then again for WAR Wrestling in Lima Ohio on Saturday!


Many rumors are running rampant in the confines of AIWF First class. People want to know why I would turn my back on those who gave me a place to exist after being exiled from my last home. This past Friday night after a hard fought match against some poor smuck, that for the life of me, I can't even remember his name, I decided to firmly let everyone there know how I feel. I come from a wrestling back ground. I train hard every day. I work my ass off. I get in the ring with  these kids that think they are the second coming of the Rock or Stone Cold. They think they can go. They think they can entertain. Fact of the matter is I out wrestle them, I out cardio them, and I out entertain them. At the end of the day the distance between myself and the "boys" that are the current crop of up and comers makes me shake my head. You think cause you are in front of 50 fans (that you'r related to or are you personal friends) in a Piggly Wiggly cheering for you, that you have made it? You think you have arrived? I run a training class every Monday and Tuesday out of the same location. Guess how many of the local superstars make their way to my class to get better. ZERO. Not a SINGLE FUCKING ONE! Maybe they think I have nothing to teach? Maybe they think they are already the best they can be? I don't know, and I hate to be a buzz kill, But YOU ALL SUCK!!!! When you can step in the ring with me and go 30 minutes nonstop and entertain the shit out of the crowd then maybe you can call yourself a pro. Until then go back to the yard or wherever you came from and stop killing our beautiful business! For all those that continue to think they are great and need to do nothing to better yourself, I look forward to your debut on RAW! Fucking ass holes. So this Friday, we all want answers. I have been called out by Doublestuff Tom McClain. He has also enlisted one of my great rivals, Eric Fallen. You both want to challenge me and my principals, well Friday you go on ahead a show up. Go out to the ring and call me out! If your lucky I wont be there. If your luck has run out then you will both face a beating of a lifetime.


Changing gears a little, I get to tangle with the Titan on Saturday in Lima. Very much looking forward to this match. This kid impressed me so much over the last year. I plan to help make his first match at WAR wrestling a memorable one. Make no mistake though, I will pull out all the stops and put him on his back. He will know he was in a fight. When it's all said and done I will leave Lima the same way I came in to Lima... as the Mother F'n Man!

Husky interview w/ Amanda


Check out a great interview with one of my former female students. Huskie Howard from Wrestle Ohio sits down with Amanda de la Cruz. She gives a good bit of insight on being in the business and training with me! Click the link below to give it a read!

Be sure to check out the site and read plenty of other interviews from many local wrestling stars.


This stuff hurts

How tough are you?

 I like to push until you break, then force you to go a little more. It's amazing what positive words and a I want people to be better attitude has on students. I want you to be not good, but great! I expect it and I hate settling for anything less. We now have several 100 squats under our belts and cardio has become everyone's best friend. If you can't breath you can't think. If you can't over. Headed in to week 3. The initial bruises and scrapes are healing. The lactic acid in the muscles is going away, but the Hawk is just getting started and now it's time to get down to business.

Below are photos of Brittany after her first week in my wrestling camp.



Meet the new class

Main event Pro Wrestling Camp

Meet the new students

November 10, 2014 I began my latest pro wrestling training camp. This class is small, but so far is full of heart. If any one knows me and how I train, then you know I push till you break, then I push some more just to prove you have it in you. I am very happy to be entering our third week, with no one quitting so far. Over the next 20 weeks or so I will detail every little thing that happens at training here on my site. Check back weekly to keep up with their progress.

Meet the greenhorns!

I challenged all the local talent to get better. Sadly only a few have chosen to try.

Hawks old school Training week 1

Meet the class.

Each and every week check back here to  follow the progress of my newest class of aspiring pro wrestling hopefuls as they learn all about our great business. I will be keeping a log of progress here for the world to see, so you better believe they will bring it, or they will be embarrassed! Our business is not easy, and is not for every one. If I had a dollar for every time some one told me that being a pro wrestler  is their dream, only to find out this dream is hard work, I'd be a rich guy. My newest students, a couple of guys and a girl, seem to be able to hack what I can dish out for now. Check back next week, as I will introduce you to the new class!


Training class

Hawks old school training

Begins tonight, Monday Nov 10. 6p beginners, 8p advanced. Come wearing loose fitting clothing, gym or wrestling shoes, open eyes and ears, CLOSED mouths! Follow the progress of my new students right here each and every week as I update and do everything in my power to get them started on the right road.


Double shot 2

Huge Double shot weekend!

Friday 11/7 and Saturday 11/8

This is your chance to come out and see the Hawk live in action. Friday Cody takes on the 500lb. Bigga Black in Franklin Ohio, his quest to regain the AIWF First Class Heavy weight title. Then check him out on Saturday as he faces one of his best students, and toughest foes in Aaron Williams for WAR Wrestling in Lima. Cody and Bigga have seen minimal action in the ring against each other but this promises to be a fantastic match of smaller more agile vs. pure size and strength. The "Baddest Man Alive" Aaron Williams has been partners with Hawk, and across the ring from Cody many times. They have a fairly ever record facing each other over the years. This may be the last time you will ever see these men battle each other. Either way this will ba a fantastic weekend to come out catch some wrestling and follow the Hawk in his quest to continue being the man!!!





Hardcore Halloween Oct. 31

Cody Hawk vs. B.J. Whitmer

Talk about a blast from the past, as Cody Hawk takes on one of his old buddies from the fabled HWA days, current Ring of Honor star B.J. Whitmer. These two have faced off several times in the past and it has been nothing short of amazing. The last time they faced off barbed wire was brought in to the ring by Hawk, and it was turned against him as B.J. bloodied the Hawk's face bad! This is a must see match and possibly the last time these two men will ever face off. Friday night, Halloween, 6972 South Dixie High Way Franklin Ohio. Bell time 7:00pm.
