Tony Borcherding (born June 6, 1974) is an American professional wrestler better known under his ring name 2 Tuff Tony. He is best known for his career in Independent Wrestling Association Mid-South, Combat Zone Wrestling, Big Japan Pro Wrestling, and currently Juggalo Championship Wrestling where he appears frequently tagging with Mad Man Pondo. The duo are known in Japan as 'Baka Gaijin' or 'Crazy Foreigners'.
Professional wrestling careerEdit
He has also been both a frequent opponent and tag team partner of Corporal Robinson. During his run as Midwest Renegade Wrestling heavyweight champion, Tony was a member of a wrestling group known as The SINdicate. His allies in the group included Ty Dalton and Deno Blade. 2 Tuff Tony made a name for himself on the independent wrestling circuit for his extreme style and his natural charisma. He also is noted for his 'corkscrew dive', in which he places his opponent on a wooden table, then jumps off the top rope while spinning, crashing both he and his opponent through the table. He has performed this finishing maneuver by jumping out of balconies, off stages, and even in a parking lot (leaping from the top of a Ryder Moving truck).
Juggalo Championship WrestlingEdit
Juggalo World OrderEdit
On October 6, 2007, Corporal Robinson, Scott Hall, and Violent J formed the Juggalo World Order (JWO) at Evansville Invasion. At that years Hallowicked After Party, on October 31, Shaggy 2 Dope was introduced as a member of the group. After the main event of the night, special guest referee Nosawa ripped off his referee shirt to reveal that he too was a member of the JWO. At Bloodymania II, Kevin Nash teamed with Scott Hall, and proclaimed himself a member of the group. The 2008 Hallowicked After Party saw the JWO induct its newest member, 2 Tuff Tony.
On November 9, the Juggalo World Order (Scott Hall, Shaggy 2 Dope, Violent J, 2 Tuff Tony, and Corporal Robinson) "invaded" Total Nonstop Action Wrestling's Turning Point PPV by purchasing front row tickets to the event. They proceeded to promote their faction by flashing their JWO jerseys, which each member had on, before being removed from the building. The group expressed interest in "invading" World Wrestling Entertainment at its 2009 Royal Rumble PPV, but were unable due to filming commitments for Big Money Rustlas in Los Angeles. They have also shown interest in "invading" Ring Of Honor and Ultimate Fighting Championship.
