A fan favorite powerhouse who uses "Iron Man" by Black Sabbath as his entrance music, and uses the "Shotgun Press" modified bearhug slam as his finisher. Gunz wears a pair of deep blue, full length wrestling
tights. Down the right leg a black panther seems to almost cling to Logan's
extremity for dear life, his long white incisors flaring... down the left leg
the word "GUNZ" in simple black lettering. Across the back of his tights,
also in black lettering are the words "Pao-Do", which translated from the
Chinese means, "The Way Of The Panther". Generally complementing this attire
is a t-shirt with one of the various slogans that Logan uses, a pair of black
boots, black gloves on his hands, and a blue bandanna tied around his head
that reads "GUNZ" across the forehead. Once the bell rings Logan discards the shirt and bandanna...leaving the rest of his attire intact.
If the size of one man's heart determined the size of his body, Logan Gunz
would be 20 feet tall. Broad and powerful, Logan Gunz has always fought the
odds. His trademark steel green eyes tell the story of a man who's intensity
is like none that has ever been matched in the wrestling world. His head
always clean shaven, and a goatee growing around his mouth, "The Gunz" has
become the epitomy of the word "warrior". He strives only for the utter
domination of his opponents... and to satisfy the hunger that lurks inside
him. Gunz has a panther tatooed on both of his arms, signifying his
spiritual essence. His body screams "powerful" with his broad set of
shoulders, thick arms and legs, and no discernable neck.
Logan Gunz was born in Atlanta, Georgia on April 1, 1974. He was the first child of Steve and Heather Gunz, a poor couple that
struggled just to make the ends meet. Steve was an alcoholic, an abuser, and
a thief. Heather was a kind woman, and a faithful wife... when she and Steve
married she had no idea of the monster that he truly was. They say that
"love is blind" and truly in this case it was. Heather did her best to keep
their small family together despite Steve dissapearing for days at a time,
constantly having to bail her husband out of jail, enduring savage beatings
on an almost nightly basis, and the constant stream of "less than desirables"
that Steve continually ran in and out of their small shack. Steve and
Heather would have 2 more children, Jonathon and Misty.
Shortly after the birth of Misty in 1981, Heather finally decided that she
couldn't take it anymore. One stormy evening in August she packed up her
children and left while Steve was out with his friends... it was the worst
mistake she ever made. Being a single mother with 4 children wasn't easy,
her parents had disowned her for marrying a man such as her husband, and she
was never allowed to have any friends. She and her young family moved into a
two room, rat-infested apartment. Heather performed odd-jobs, worked as a
waitress, anything that she could do to make enough money to keep 4 hungry
Early in 1982, Logan was awakened by gunshots in the night. Only 7 years old
and already the "protector" of his younger siblings, he stepped out of his
room to investigate exactly what had happened... what he saw would change his
life forever. Police reports indicate that Heather Gunz had made numerous
complaints regarding threats made upon her by her estranged husband, Steve
finally made good on these threats as he and his young wife both lay dead on
the floor before their 7 year old son. Steve apparently had come to the
small apartment in a drunken rage and shot Heather 4 times in the chest
before turning the gun on himself. The sight of his parents laying in their
own blood left an permanent scar upon the psyche of Logan Gunz.
He and his brothers and sister were taken into custody of the state and
shipped off to an orphanage. In less than a year, Jonathon was adopted by a
wealthy family in the north Atlanta area. Logan, however, became labeled as
a problem child. Fits of anger and rage often overcame him on a regular
basis. He became abusive towards other children, and became more and more
withdrawn from the rest of society to the point that the only person he would
communicate with was his younger sister, Misty. Logan being a emotionally
troubled child, Misty having some severe medical problems, neither of them
was ever adopted and they spent the next 10 years bouncing around the system.
When Logan turned 17 years old, he was released from state custody. Having
never had much of a family life, and still fighting inner-demons that brought
on huge fits of rage and anger, Logan took to the only thing that his father
was ever able to teach him... the streets. By the age of 18 he was well on
his way to becoming what he despised most in life, Steve Gunz. But,
everything took a turn for the better upon a chance meeting with someone who
was willing to help Logan take control of the animal that lurked inside him.
Chow Doc Nguyen was a Chinese national and a martial arts instructor, only in
Atlanta for a few days to watch his son compete in the "Battle of Atlanta"
martial arts exhibition when he happened to sit next to a young Logan Gunz on
a city bus. Logan was highly troubled, and Nguyen sensed this immediately.
However, different from almost everyone else that had ever encountered Logan,
Nguyen began to attempt to search his soul.
Gunz resisted at first, but as the ride grew longer... his resistance grew
weaker. By the end of the ride, Logan found himself telling Chow things that
he never thought he would be able to impart to anyone outside of Misty. A
friendship grew between the two over the next two days, Chow becoming the
father figure that Logan never had. Nguyen realized that unless someone
intervened, that Gunz was on the path to destruction. One night, during a
walk down an Atlanta sidestreet, Gunz's life took a turn for the better.
Nguyen agreed to come to Atlanta to help Logan with his problems, under the
condition that Logan would one day re-pay the favor.
So it began, Nguyen began training Gunz in the ancient Chinese art of
kung-fu. Not only in the fighting skills, but in the mental discipline... it
would be through this discipline that Logan would find his salvation. Over
the next year Logan began to learn to control the rage inside of himself, an
entity which he and Nguyen referred to as "the panther" because of Logan's
cat-like green eyes, and his overall demeanor when he became angry. Chow
helped Logan turn that anger into intensity, and to channel it to his
advantage. After a year, Chow's visa expired and he returned to
China... having forever changed the course of Logan Gunz.
When Logan turned 18, he took legal guardianship over his now 11 year old
sister... and the two set out to "make it" in this world. For the next 6
years life was a struggle. Logan took up fighting in illegal "pit-fighting"
tournaments to make extra cash... and that's where it happened. In March of
1998, Logan was spotted by a scout from a small independent organization
known as the FWF, and signed a modest contract to compete for them.
Success came quickly for Logan Gunz, capturing the FWF Intercontinental Title
in only his second career match, and running off an impressive winning streak
that earned him the # 22 ranking in J. Harper's "Top 50 Wrestling Moments of
'98". The fans took immediately to Logan. His intensity and never-say-die
attitude endeared him to the people, he was not arrogant or flamboyant... he
was just Logan... a common person like all of them. His meteoric rise to fame
did come with a price though as he became resented by several of the FWF's
established stars and was forced out by management under pressure of a
Now unemployed once again, it didn't take long for him to find work once
more. In May he was contacted by Dr. Nick Armstrong of the CWO and signed
on. Once again... finding success was no problem for Logan as he captured the
Television title in his 3rd ever CWO bout. Logan also made his first friend
in the wrestling business in the CWO, a young Italian competitor by the name
of Scarface. Gunz and 'Face became fast friends, their common bond being
raised on the "mean streets". They, along with Bounty Hunter, Jammin', and
Night would come together to ressurect the CWO's most legendary stable... "The
Lethal Enforcers". For the next 3 months they would dominate the CWO, much
to the fans delight, as at one time 3 of the 4 singles titles were held by
members of the LE.
While working for CWO, Gunz also began competing in a regional promotion out
of Georgia run by "Bulldog" Bob Lane, Georgia Regional Wrestling. Two weeks
after debuting, Logan would capture the Georgia State Title in a one night
tournament to fill the vacated championship, and on June 19, 1998 would
capture his first major championship by defeating Angel Reaper for the
Southern States Championship. GRW merged with several other regional
promotions to re-form the legendary Southern Championship Wrestling, and Gunz
was named the SCW Southern States Champion. Gunz would hold the title for an
astounding 113 days, surpassing the feats of Brody Thunder and Christopher
However, CWO closed, and Lane left the SCW... which caused Logan to fall out
of favor with the promoters, and so Logan devoted full time to his 3rd
employer, "The National Wrestling Council", where he competed until
recently. Logan's luck was less than great in the NWC. Despite compiling a
15-1-1 record in his year and a half stay there, Logan never captured a
title. Tragedy has struck him several times in the NWC, including a major
injury, the kidnapping of his sister by a stable known as "The Elite", and
being double-crossed by his own brother, Jonathon.
Logan, in 1999, would lead the ressurgence of GRW and capture his second GRW
Georgia State title, the only man ever to accomplish this feat. However, the
promotion and Logan Gunz would soon fall on hard times as GRW would fold
before Gunz was able to avenge his loss to Toshio Nakemura and his fiance'
Destiny would leave him in the summer of 2000. Gunz has floated aimlessly
for the better part of the last 2 years... but his return to his home
territory could prove just the shot in the arm that his career needs. What does the future hold for "The Warrior" Logan Gunz, only time will tell.
However, with the fans behind him and his drive and determination intact, the
sky is the limit.
Gunz is an introspective warrior, and a loner... that is how to
best describe Logan Gunz. Never backing down from a challenge, and always
concerned with upholding his own "honor" has made Logan Gunz many enemies. His gimmick is simple, he doesn't have one. Logan believes that the ring, not
the interview room, is where the matches are won. He translates that into the
burning fire and intensity that sets "The Annihilator" apart from the rest of
