BIO: Michael "8X10" Cruz, one of the most hated heels in XWF Inc. had made quite the picture frame of his roughly 10 year career. Cruze has wrestled over 500 matches in his career and he's wrestled with various former and current WWE wrestlers, former WCW wrestlers, former ECW wrestlers, and some of the biggest names in the independents, in addition to a former UFC champion. These include Sweet Stevie Lee, Elvis Elliott, T-Rantula, Storm Trooper, Bishop Slade, Jeff "Big Guns" Cannon, Original Sinn, Brian "O", Dick Flanagan, Lord Zoltan, Hector Guerrero, David Flair, Scotty "O", New Jack, Eddie Guerrero, Chris Jericho, and Dan "the Beast" Severn. Cruz recently worked with former WWF and WCW legend "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan on February 5th, 2005 in Strasburg, OH at the Wallick Auction Center.
8X10 was trained by Dick Flanagan and was Flanagan's apprentice. They even held the XWF Inc. tag titles together at one time. 8X10, however, set out on his own and had joined the likes of heel Jack Blaze in a fight against Dick Flanagan and Naomi Sinclair. Cruz was proudly a member of Jack Blaze's Team BAD, and after a nasty and brutal feud with the Storm Trooper, Michael Cruz now had set his sights on re-capturing the elusive XWF Inc. Championship, which he's wrestled for twice in his career.
