The Unnecessary Roughness Wrestling League (URWL) is a Buffalo, New York-based CAW wrestling promotion. The URWL strives to deliver an authentic, realistic wrestling experience. In its present state, the URWL is a CAW wrestling league that does not accept members in order to maintain the feeling of televised wrestling. The league is owned by Goldash007.

League History

Beginnings

The URWL was founded in late 1999 by Goldash007 as a roleplay-based e-wrestling federation. The league originally was based on a similar wrestling organization headed by Mark Root, MWL. Like MWL, the early URWL utilized ZeusPro match simulation software. In March 2000, the URWL hwaxioeld its first event, an episode of Friday Fire.

The YouTube Era

The YouTube Era of the URWL began in 2006, when CEO Goldash007 decided to re-open the league as a CAW wrestling organization instead of a text-based, roleplay-based E-wrestling federation. It lasted until June 3rd, 2008, when the URWL was removed from YouTube as the result of a suspension.

Post-YouTube

In the aftermath of the suspension from YouTube, Goldash007 decided to move every previously-posted URWL video to another site, FileFront.com. On this site, viewers are able to download full YouTube Era episodes and suhpercards in ZIP format (with the exception of URWL Digital Mayhem 2008, which was both streaming and downloadable). The URWL on YouTube event was replaced in Episode 7 with a generically-titled show called URWL Wrestling, which retained nearly every production feature of Season 2's URWL on YouTube episodes.

Events

Supercards

The URWL holds one major event, a supercard, after every two "episodes".
