NEWS AUGUST 24th 2010: Very, Very Sad Day! Went to the Funeral of my friend, 60 Year Wrestling Veteran, The Great General Skandar Akbar real name Jimmy Wehba. The day before he died, I had an overwhelming urge to call him since we had not spoken in a while. I am so glad I went with it and was able to call and speak to my friend. I told him I missed him and loved him and we would get together soon to do some more shows like the hundreds we have done together over the last 15 years. Always, had a blast and always tore the house down! I will truly miss Jimmy, he was a great man, a great friend and a great comrade in this business. Even though he started off as a great wrestler, tagging with Danny Hodge in 1960, I grew up watching him as a manager and he made an impact on my life well before I ever got the privlige of him being my friend. When I was running shows in AACW, Ak would call me every week and say "Hey Babe" Tommy D, when's the next show, I am ready, call Hodge". I will miss that also. I always paid him more than his going rate out of respect, and maybe just maybe, that's is the reason, but I doubt it! "ALLAH AKBAR"

The Greatest Manager in Pro Wrestling Turns Fan Favorite, Finally!
On January 6th, STEPSTOOL TOMMY D Stunned the crowd by turning from longtime Heel to a total Fan Favorite FACE! The crowd was totally stunned as Tommy D has always taken the dark path in his endeavers and never cared about the fans. Tommy D was surprised at the fans reaction as he had a line a mile long to sign autographs. Tommy D told us that he wished he would have taken the right path from the beginning and thanked all the fans for supporting him even though he had been a jerk for all those years. Yes, the fans and the kids especially have a new HERO and as JR would say "It's About Damn Time". It looks like to me folks that Stepstool Tommy D has changed his ways and I believe it will continue for a very long time. You never know what's going to happen when Tommy D. Steps into the Ring. Several fans told me that they have been waiting for a long time for Tommy to change his ways, as they always wanted his autograph, and now they were able to get it.
Step Stool Tommy D.and his newest aquisition, K-ROB, have been running ALL AMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIP WRESTLING with two years of continuous crowds of over 500-1500 plus. There is no indy fed out there that pulls those kind of numbers on a consistant basis. AACW is the fastest growing indy in the country if not the world. Check out the site for updates at WWW.AACWPRO.COM . Tommy D., in his 19th year in Pro Wrestling is finally getting the attention he definitely deserves. Recently he was Voted as MANAGER OF THE YEAR for AACW and previously Voted Most Hated by the fans five years in a row, has not stopped Tommy D. from dominating pro wrestling, as he now has an awesome record of being the Manager of Champions with 7 time tag team champions, and 8 time World Heavyweight Champion. Tommy D. even became the MID-South Heavyweight Champion in May 2005, (although never beaten, he gave the belt to The Widowmaker Angel Williams as payment for his services) being the first Manager in history to win the Heavyweight Title. 2005 was fantastic, 2006, 2007 was even better with the fastest growing indy in the country AACW and 2008 has opened with a bang. Who knows what he will do next. Step Stool Tommy D. is on a major roll and it looks like there is no stopping him! Now surprising everyone as a fan favorite, has made it even better for all us fans. Will you see him in TNA or WWE? Who knows, but I do know this, if Tommy gets picked up by either fed, he will make them lots, and lots of money. He is that good! I am amazed and surprised that neither organization has come to an agreement with him as of yet. All I can say is WAKE UP WWE & TNA! There has never been anybody like him in this business and there never will be. I am not just a Tommy D mark, but I see and listen to the crowd reactions, whether he was a bad guy or most recently a good guy.
TOMMY D. MEETS ONCE AGAIN, WITH THE BIG MAN OF WWE, MR. VINCE MCMAHON
The Rumors are all true. Tommy D. had a meeting with Vince McMahon earlier this year, and again on September 25, 2006. Mr. McMahon & WWE seems very interested in The Manager of Champions and his Step Stool Gimmick. SO WHY HASN'T MR. McMahon SIGNED STEPSTOOL TOMMYD as of Yet? THEY COULD MAKE A LOT OF MONEY TOGETHER. INSIDER INFO SAYS THAT PAUL HEYMAN PITCHED SEVERAL IDEAS TO MR. MCMAHON FOR ECW, but Mr. McMahon shelfed STEPSTOOL TOMMY D. IF IT'S A GIMMICK/CONTRACT ISSUE, I AM SURE TOMMY D. WOULD GIVE MR. MCMAHON AT LEAST OWNERSHIP OF THE NAME IF NOT THE GIMMICK as Tommy D is professional and very easy to work with.
Cmon Mr. McMahon, your company would benefit greatly by having StepStool Tommy D. Around. His Gimmick is totally different and he is a succes with the fans everywhere he performs. I know him really well, and his great attitude and mind for the business would be a great fit for WWE. Whether love him or hate him, the fans love to see him perform. Lots of money to be made for whoever grabs him up FIRST! Who knows, if not picked up soon, Tommy D. may outdo any fed out there as he is one of the main ingrediants who started www.AACWPRO.com, which in less than a year, became the FASTEST GROWING INDY IN THE COUNTRY. CONSTANTLY DRAWING OVER 500 FANS PER SHOW AND RISING EVERY WEEK. Maybe, Tommy D. will be the next Vince McMahon, But I would love to see him in WWE as there is no one like him! (COMMENTS MADE BY FRANK RUSSO, WEBSITE WEBMASTER FOR WWW.STEPSTOOLTOMMYD.com, www.THEWRESTLING.com, www.OFFICIALWRESTLING.com)
Thus far no deal has been reached but there has been many talks and meetings between Tommy D. and Mr. McMahon, also Johnny Ace, Vice President of Talent Relations. Thank you also goes out to Tommy Dreamer, Paul Heyman, Pat Patterson, Mike Bucci, John Cena, Michael Hayes, Skandar Akbar, Kurt Angle, Carlito, Steve Keirn & Eric Watts, for taking the time Tommy D. has spent with them and showing great interest. Also, special thanks to Mando Guerrero (who trained Tommy 18 years ago), The Honky Tonk Man, & ESPECIALLY THE LEGENDARY DANNY HODGE for sticking by and mentoring Tommy through all these years. DANNY HODGE SET UP THE MEETINGS WITH MR. MCMAHON, and Tommy wanted me to tell everyone, that DANNY HODGE is truly the best, as a person and as well as a great friend.
We will give you an update as we receive the word from Tommy D. himself. In the meantime he is working hard getting ready as several opportunities are finally coming through. You never know in this business! ALL TOMMY D. FANS CALL WWE OR TNA AND TELL THEM YOU WANT TO SEE THE GREATEST MANAGER IN PRO WRESTLING TODAY, IN THEIR ORGANIZATION!. Sometimes, you have to stand up (even on a stepstool) and have your voice be heard!
Who Trained StepStool Tommy D. in 1989?
Former Heavyweight Champ and 2x Commissioner Step Stool Tommy D. is widely considered the Best Pro Wrestling Manager in the world today since, his very own idol, Bobby "The Brain" Heenan. Tommy D. was trained in 1988 by the great Mando Guerrero of the famous Guerrero Brothers (yes, he is Eddie's brother). Being only 5'3 short, Tommy started as a referee and then developed the persona that is widely known today. He carries a Step Stool to the ring. This has never been done in the history of wrestling. Tommy D. uses his step stool to stand tall and talk to the crowd as well as to give his wrestlers instructions, so he can see them eye to eye. He is "A Step Above The Rest"!Every now and then someone usually gets smacked in the head by his stepstool! Tommy D. has brought back a part of wrestling that is missing today, AWESOME PRO WRESTLING MANAGERS. Growing up watching wrestling, Managers were a huge part of sports entertainment in which today they are a rare commodity. Tommy D. has brought back the excitement with a modern twist, and continues to prove that a great manager is a must have for any good wrestler to get to the top. He is very funny as well as entertaining and certainly knows how to take care of business from his long list of champions he has managed and taken to the top. Only you the fans can request that a Manager as entertaining and exciting as Step Stool Tommy D. be booked nationally for everyone to enjoy his form of Sports Entertainment called Pro Wrestling.
STEPSTOOL TOMMY D GET'S UPSET WITH THE FANS, OR DOES HE JUST LOVE TO PERFORM?
Before turning fan favorite on Jan 6, 2007, Tommy D. has vented to us his frustration with the fans. He claims that everywhere he goes, the fans chant MIDGET, MIDGET, MIDGET!. Tommy claims that he is NOT a Midget but just a short guy, vertically challenged, standing 5'3" short. He also has told us that the fans chant other remarks like Tommy D. Sucks, "Danny Devito", "Troll" and "Mini-Me". The Commish has told us that even though he is not well liked by the fans, that he has feelings too and insists he is not a Midget and is just Vertically Challenged. He also states that if he saw a fan in public, and they come up to him chanting midget, that he WILL take his stepstool and smack someone in the head with it. Even though he is not a fan favorite, you got to respect his achievements as a winner. Now the fan are cheering for Tommy and actually mobbing him for an autograph and a picture. I think he likes it better this way!
