Synopsis
In 1984, a new wrestling league was created on a cable television channel in Minnesota. "The Kids Pro Wrestling Show" started out as fun and games, but was soon seen in the living rooms of thousands across the country via cable television, and the National Wrestling Federation (NWF) was born.

For five years, the NWF was managed and promoted by a young and talented kid named Shawn Crossen, otherwise known as "Crusher Crossen" in the ring. In 1984, Shawn was just 14 years old, but by 1986, he was promoting live wrestling venues at local armory halls in front of hundreds of paid spectators and nationwide cable audiences.

But going from bed mattresses in a basement to live public cards in a professional wrestling ring did not come easy. The evolution took years to accomplish with many obstacles along the way. From cable tv suspensions to insurance problems, there were always a host of problems to deal with. Yet somehow, Shawn managed to make it all work. And all the while, the NWF had positive community support with several newspaper articles written about it—this long before the existence of the backyard-type youth wrestling leagues now so commonly seen today.

But unlike the backyard style wrestling leagues of today’s time, the NWF was a much different venture. Similar to the major leagues of professional wrestling, the NWF came across very professional looking and organized. This in turn would explain the reasons why the league had such great success.

NWF Wrestling was a popular attraction to kids and adults alike and seemed like it would last forever. So what ever happened to this incredible league? Now, for the first time in nearly 20 years, Shawn "Crusher" Crossen has come forth with this remarkable story that tells the entire sequence of events, from the birth of it’s creation, to the final bell. Whether you’re a fan of wrestling or not, you will find yourself marveled at the abilities of this very talented 14-year-old and the league he created.
