Egbert Neil Hoskins (born February 8, 1972), better known by the ring name The Lummox, is an American professional wrestler currently wrestling for the WNWA. He is currently the WNWA World Tag Team Champions.
Born in Marion, South Carolina, Hoskins was diagnosed with gigantism and acromegalia. By the time he was 10 he was 6'5" and weighed 300 lbs. He was a star basketball and football player in high school. Hoskins attended community college for two semesters before dropping out and moving to Los Angeles. Hoskins worked as a waiter at several LA restaurants and as a model for big and tall clothing catalogs. Hoskins became involved in professional wrestling when Danny Bonaduce introduced him to Thunderlips at a charity basketball event in early 2006. Hoskins trained under Thunderlips and Cyrius Suk for seven months and then signed with the bsWo. He polished his wrestling skills at the WNWA Training Center, where at one point he possessed the ability to perform a lummoxsault.
Hoskins debuted in the WNWA during the 2006 Summer House Show from Hell Tour. He introduced himself as The Lummox, claiming to be the son of Andre the Lummox, and blaming Captain Redneck for the death of his "father".
He engaged in a brief fued with Dale Taylor before Taylor destroyed him at the Smoky Mountain Slaughter PPV. The Lummox is best known as the wrestling (and some say life) partner of The Liberal Librarian. They have been embroiled in a bitter feud with Sam Bash and The Nigerian Nightmare for several months.
The Lummox befriended the Liberal Librarian following The Librarian's entry into the bsWo. Though the Liberal Librarian was not generally well-liked (nor was The Lummox) within the group and was initally hired to wash the cars of the bsWo members, the Lummox and he hit it off after the Liberal drank two mud-monkeys puking all over himself and dropping several Cleveland Steamers on an autographed poster of Captain Redneck.
The Lummox and The Liberal Librarian were viewed as the most vulnerable members of the bsWo. Neither had a sterling record in the ring and both were looked at more as mascots, front-line bodies, and novelty members by the founding members. After losing a handicap match to Broadway Brad they were fired by Thunderlips and brutally attacked by The Insiders.
On December 12, 2006 The Lummox & The Liberal Librarian were fired from the bsWo by Thunderlips and then savagely beaten by The Insiders. Upon being fired by the bsWo, The Lummox and The Liberal Librarian formed the tag team Frustrated Inc. In late 2006 they feuded with both Team Agbor and The Insiders.
Following a brutal attack by Sam Bash at Season's Beatings in which he was continuously shocked with a defbrillator and the death of Saddam Hussein, The Lib announced that he would be taking some time off to recover both mentally and physically. The Lib returned to action at the January 9, 2007 edition of WNWA Wrestling with a new bodyguard The Turd. The Lib interfered in a match enabling Billy Bell to defeat Tony Fanuci. Bell and his brother Bobby Bell have joined forces with The Vagrants and The Lib and The Lummox to form the stable Frustrated Inc.
On January 19, 2007 at a house show in Boaz, AL, Frustrated Inc. defeated Team Agbor to win the World Tag Team Championship in controversial fashion. Team Agbor were announced as the winners but the decision was overturned by Judge Jennings and the 9th Circuit Court due to the fact that The Lummox and The Nigerian Nightmare both had their shoulders counted down but Jennings claimed the Lummox had his foot under the bottom rope. There is no video evidence to support this claim, however, WNWA President J.R. Ewing was powerless to stop the Court's ruling.
Frustrated Inc. lost the titles to Team Agbor at February Free For All in an Anus Explosion Death Match. However, Judge Jennings once again ruled in the favor of Frustrated Inc. and said that the titles could not change hands in that type of match. Therefore, he returned the titles to Frustrated Inc.
The Lummox was named by Judge Jennings (to the protestations of J.R. Ewing) as one of the participants in the WNWA World Heavyweight Championship Tournament on February 27, 2007. He defeated Chi-Town Chris Collins in a first round match-up. In the second round of the tournament, The Lib defeated The Lummox in a sham match, mocking the deceased Thunderlips by acting out the classic Thunderlips vs. Andre The Lummox match.
The Lummox became the sole holder of the World Tag Team Championship on May 27, 2007 when The Lib surrendered his portion of the title. The Lummox has successfully defended the title several times in handicap matches. On July 22, 2007 at UnCivil War, The Lummox won a unification bout against the National Tag Team Champions, The Vagrants to win the WNWA Texas Tag Team Championship. On July 25, The Lib awarded the second belt to Da Crunk.
