Eric James

Eric James is one of the most charismatic wrestlers to step foot in Victory Pro Wrestling. 

James, going then by EJ Risk, is also one of the most decorated champions in Victory Pro Wrestling, as the first ever King of New York, the first ever two-time King of New York, VPW Tag Team Champion, Gold Rush Rumble champion, VPW New York State Champion, and two-time VPW Champion.

James had to sit on the sidelines due to a back injury that almost retired him from wrestling, but that did not stop him.  James became the first VPW Commissioner, and while running the show James prepared for a comeback.
