Millennium Pro Wrestling was created in early 2001 by Paul Ventimiglia, who wrestled locally as Logan X. Ventimiglia started his wrestling career in 1998, when he began training with Cincinnati Red at the Grappler’s Den in Simi Valley. Ventimiglia then got Barry Cohen on board, who worked at the Bernard Milken Jewish Community Center, which was a regular venue for UIWA, and would become MPW’s original venue. At the time Ventimiglia was also working at the RF Video cart at the Northridge Fashion Center Mall, where he met Adrian Montes, who invested in MPW becoming the third promoter for the company.
The promotion then went on an eight year hiatus in March 2002. The promotion then returned in 2010, running until 2013 before once again going on hiatus. The Moorpark Era for the promotion began when the Millennium Wrestling Academy opened in June 2016 and the promotion has run nearly weekly since.
Millennium Pro Wrestling holds events most Friday’s at their school, the Millennium Wrestling Academy, located at 165 Poindexter Ave. in Moorpark, CA. Bell time for their fan appreciation show is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. with doors opening at 6:30 p.m.
