Early career

As a kid growing up in Uniondale, New York, Brimstone was never into sports.cite web|url=|title=Brimstone: Interview LI Exchange|accessdate=2007-05-03 ] He attended Smith Street Elementary School, American Jewish Academy for middle school, and returned to Uniondale for High School. He went to school with rappers Busta Rhymes and Charlie Brown, both formally of the hip-hop group, "Leaders of the New School", and Brown's sisters who were a popular pair of the Doublemint Twins.cite web|url= |title=William Kucmierowski - IMDb Bio|accessdate=2007-07-06 ] Brimstone graduated from Uniondale High School in 1992 and attended Nassau Community College as a music major.cite web|url= |title= Uniondale High School: The Alumni Wall of Fame |accessdate=2007-08-07 ] Prior to beginning his career in professional wrestling, Brimstone had a career in music performing as the drummer in bands such as Image, Who’s Laughing Now, and Bugsy. Bugsy received a nomination for Best Ska-Punk Act at the Long Island Music Awards in 1998, [Citation| last =Strauss| first =Ron| title =Metal Me In Bugsyville| newspaper =Long Island Voice| pages =16| year =1998| date =March 26-April 1] where Will was also a presenter. [ [ Long Island Music Awards] ] [cite web |url= |title=Brimstone Interview 4/17/07 Trash Talking Radio|accessdate=2007-05-02 ]

Brimstone had been a fan of wrestling at a very young age and decided that he wanted to become a wrestler at twenty-one. Brimstone’s wrestling career began in 1996 when he, and long time friend Chris Hostile decided to follow a life long dream. [cite web |url= |title=Hostile at |accessdate=2007-03-06 ] While looking through a professional wrestling publication, he came across an ad about a new wrestling school out of Queens, New York called “The Doghouse.” They had just freshly come off of a benefit show dedicated to ring veteran Junkyard Dog, and decided to go beyond their federation (Long Island Wrestling Federation - LIWF) and create a pro-wrestling facility. Former wrestler Bobby Lombardi owned the company, and the trainers were some of the best guys on the independent circuit at the time and are currently working for major companies in the business. They consisted of Homicide (a member of LAX in TNA), Low Ki (Senshi in TNA), Monsta Mack, Low Life Louie, Magic, and Laithon (The Tower of Torture).cite web|url=

title=Brimstone Interview: Legends Radio 7/11/07 |accessdate=2007-08-07

The roster of students consisted of wrestlers such as Lord Clarence MacDougal,cite web |url= |title=Ten Questions with... Lord Clarence MacDougal |accessdate=2007-03-15 ] Grim Reefer, Maniac Mike Mayhem, Justin Cage, Papadon, Havok (fresh from the Wild Samoans), El Diabolico, G.I.Joe, Mike Kruel, Fat Boy Rob, One Man Riot Squad, Psycho Tony, Major Intensity, and others.

The Doghouse grew rapidly and moved from its original quarters into a large warehouse. It was there that Brimstone met his current trainer ‘The Original’ Gino Carusso of Unified Wrestling Federation. Gino was a pro who had worked in WCW and many other federations across the country. Brimstone also learned from guests who came down to the school on a regular basis taking the training reigns such as Crazy Clown, Sir Christopher Michaels, and Dances With Dudley.cite web |url= |title=Brimstone at |accessdate=2007-03-06 ]

As Brimstone, his wrestling style and gimmick has led to frequent comparisons to The Undertaker. [ [ Darkside Girls] ] cite web |url=|title=The Warned |accessdate=2007-04-20 ]

Wrestling World Wide

Brimstone joined Wrestling World Wide in 1997 and quickly became a mainstay of the federation. Although he wrestled many tag matches for the company, Brimstone remained a singles competitor for the larger part of his tenure there. He was brought into the company by Rocky Shore and T.N.T., known as “The Bad Boys.” [Citation| last=Wrestling World Wide Inc| title=Lluvia De Estrellas| periodical=El Luchador| volume=1| pages=3]

Brimstone became the Wrestling World Wide "Heavyweight Champion" in Manhattan, New York on August 5, 2000 after defeating One Man Riot Squad.

Critical Mass

Brimstone and Hostile became fast friends with Mayhem, and the three thought it would be interesting to become a “clique” considering the success of then-cliques such as WWE’s DX, and WCW’s nWo. At the time of formation, they were still students. Soon after, Brimstone brought another close friend into the business, Chavez Raoul, who became the manager/wrestler for the tight knit group. They came up with a thousand names, until Hostile and Brimstone came up with the name “Critical Mass.” Bobby Lombardi liked the idea, so Critical Mass was born.cite web |url= |title=Critical Mass History |accessdate=2007-03-08 ]

Critical Mass was a collection of some of the darker characters, which made them different in a federation of gangsta and thug gimmicks. As with many cliques of then and now, Critical Mass could break up into any version of a tag team utilizing any of its members to face their opponents. Normally, Brimstone tagged with Hostile or with Mayhem. Most of Brimstone’s career as a tag team competitor has been with Mayhem.

At a few points in Critical Mass history, the members were forced to work against each other. The most notorious of these times was an angle used by Bobby Lombardi to turn Hostile and Mayhem against Brimstone, noting two of Brimstone’s most memorable feuds. George Espada of Wrestling World Wide loved the idea and ran with it, pitting Brimstone against Mayhem in one on one matches. This was known as the “Dysfunctional Family” era of Critical Mass. Chavez was eventually able to reunite the full team. As time went by, there were also a few additions to the Critical Mass clique. For example, Brimstone and Hostile recruited Rexx Rockwell for a brief stint with Critical Mass. Later, in the absence of Hostile and Chavez, Brimstone and Mayhem recruited temporary members Storm Sasake (Larry McKenny) and John Curse. Closer to the end of Brimstone’s days with the NYWC, the last official member initiated into the group was Tyler Payne.cite web |url=|title=Pop Stars Plus |accessdate=2007-04-20 ]

NYWC (New York Wrestling Connection)

Critical Mass began branching out and promoting themselves on the independent circuit in order to gain speed and a larger name in the industry. Brimstone wanted to open a school and federation within his own childhood stomping grounds, since it would be beneficial for many wrestlers on Long Island considering there was no such place at the time.

Money was tight, and, although Critical Mass wanted to open a training facility, the chances were slim to none. At that point, the school was still just a dream. In the meantime, Brimstone figured that they could start running some shows by booking their friends and trainers from The Doghouse. Brimstone scouted locations for events.

The first official event was to be held at the Hooters in East Meadow, New York. The show was put together and manned by Lord Clarence MacDougal, Hostile, Mayhem, and Brimstone. Hostile came up with the name N.Y.W.C. (New York Wrestling Connection), considering it was a way for all the New York workers to ‘connect’ on Long Island. The NYWC debuted on Sunday, August 15, 1999 in an event entitled “Hotter Than Hell”, that was sponsored by Coors/Labatt. Hooters paid for the advertising, ring rental, and fed all the wrestlers. They rented the ring from local wrestler Rocky Shore, who at the time was tagging up with another local wrestler T.N.T.

The second official event was held at an amusement park in Farmingdale, New York called, “Funzone.” This event was entitled, “Thanksgiving Wrestlefest ‘99” and ran on Sunday, November 28, 1999.

Critical Mass Pro Wrestling, Corp.

Thoughts about creating a fully functional pro-wrestling facility had still been running through Brimstone’s mind. While looking through the Pennysaver, he noticed a classified ad for a newly sprouting Martial Arts School over in Hicksville, New York. They were looking for trainers for various forms of martial arts. Brimstone told him that yes; they would eventually need a ring, however, anyone who came through those doors would learn their level bumps like men on the hard mats. He stated that the students could perfect their chain wrestling, takedowns, monkey flips, and rolls prior to entering a professional ring. He convinced Sloan that he was determined to make a success out of the school, and they eventually grew large enough to leave the martial arts academy.Pro Wrestling Daily ( was a frequently changing page)]

Brimstone enlisted his partners Hostile and Mayhem to help, as well, considering they would be co-owners in the school. Brimstone named the school, “Critical Mass Pro Wrestling” after the long time clique. Brimstone contacted Bobby Lombardi out of respect to let him know he wanted to be considered the Long Island extension of The Doghouse. Brimstone requested Gino’s personal and professional advice and a break down of his normal training regimen.

Brimstone figured that they needed a fourth person to assist in the training process, and they were coming to a point where they needed to make decisions. Brimstone suggested another local wrestler John Curse who had been involved with ECW’s "House of Hardcore" and was also a member of Team Taz. Mayhem was adamantly against Curse coming in. Hostile was indifferent, but he was in the middle of making some life changing decisions himself. Mayhem thought that the three of them could handle it themselves, but then Hostile dropped the bad news that he was moving away to California with his then-wife. She was in the Navy and stationed there, and he needed to be with her. [cite web |url= |title="Chris Hostile" Bio |accessdate=2007-03-15 ] Needless to say, Brimstone and Mayhem were crushed. Seeing that their three was down to two, Mayhem agreed to bring John into CMPW.

While Critical Mass was still building, Brimstone came up with and printed out mini flyers in order to start gaining some interest in the school. He personally went to malls, WWF and WCW events at the Nassau Coliseum, Gyms, etc. to hand out these flyers and paper them on cars.cite web |url= |title=Tyler Payne |accessdate=2007-03-15 ] Brimstone recruited his first two students at Broadway Mall in Hicksville, New York. They were two Roberts, one who later went by the name of “Tek” and the other who is now well known as “Dickie Rodz”. Not more than a few days went by and he had another two students join, “Tyler Payne” and “Brock Vendetta.” A few days more produced “Nuke” and “Black Dawg Mack”. A few more days went by, and in walked “Maxmilyin” and “Suicyco”. This was the first class of CMPW.

CMPW purchased an old 20 x 20 ring and Brimstone thought it would be great to hold a mini exhibition and have the students run a gambit of mini-matches in order to interest potential students. Politician Tom Gulotta attended the Grand Opening. Brimstone contacted News 12, the local news station for all of Long Island and had reporter Bonnie Schneider do the morning show live from the school. Brimstone did a large part of the interviews as the students trained in the background. They were on and off in between the regular news all morning.

As CMPW grew, they decided it was time to get a bigger location. They found a building located in the Delco Plaza Shopping Center in Hicksville. The school also bought a second ring, which was an ECW ring (trap door and all) used in a pay-per-view.

After several years, tensions within the company boiled over, and in April 2002, Brimstone took a leave of absence from CMPW/NYWC. Brimstone utilized his time away from wrestling by focusing on his personal endeavors.

Carnival of Destruction

"Called Out" on July 21 2007 was a monumental event in PWR history due to the unveiling of the Carnival of Destruction (C.o.D.).cite web |url= |title=July 21st 2007 “Called Out Results” by: Christopher Paglia |accessdate=2007-07-28 ] It was initially announced during a segment of the Demolition Derby with Blast that he, along with Brimstone,cite web |url= | Brimstone Profile |accessdate=2007-07-28 ] Lou Valentino, Armand DeMuerto, and manager Rayna Fyre would be uniting to form C.o.D. with intentions of destroying everything and everyone that is PWR. Later that night, Brimstone was scheduled to face Johnny Ova in the third match of Ova's quest for the PWR Heavyweight Championship. Towards the end of the match-up, Brimstone attempted to hit XiBalba, however Ova managed to kick and stomp his way out and then rolled over Brimstone's back into a superkick. Valentino rushed the ring taking out Johnny and inciting a DQ decision on Brimstone by the referee. The Carnival of Destruction proceeded to take turns crushing Ova, who is the federation's most beloved face. Brimstone violently hit Johnny Ova with XiBalba, while Blast followed up with a crushing chokeslam. Queen Yasmine rushed the ring as if to protect Johnny, she attacked Ova by hitting him with the Gravedigger. It is then revealed that Yasmine is a member of C.o.D., and Blast calls for the recruits from the locker room. Immediately, out came Draven and Vito Bari of the LI Wrecking Crew, Armand DeMuerto, and Donnie Bon Jovi looking eager to destroy Ova. As the Carnival of Destruction laughed at the carnage, Manager Rayna Fyre got in the face of Johnny and told him, "How does it feel to be slapped by C.o.D.?"

In a vignette, C.o.D. was seen leaving the arena while the recruits were reminded that the foundation of the Carnival is and always will be Brimstone, Blast, Valentino, Yasmine, and Rayna Fyre. The members collectively agreed, and Brimstone stated, "At Lethal Lottery, PWR will never be the same again!" On August 11, 2007 at PWR "Lethal Lottery", Brimstone won a 16-person Battle Royal earning himself a shot at the PWR World Heavyweight Championship. He will get this title match at the next PWR show against the reigning champion Samir Ahmed II.

At "Collision Course" on September 15, 2007, Samir Ahmed II retained the title against Brimstone. Rayna Fyre interfered allowing Brimstone to hit Samir with the Attitude Adjustment. As Brimstone set up for XiBalba, Samir countered into a surprise victory roll for the pin. Brimstone attacked the celebrating Champion, and the locker room cleared to try and restrain him. He attacked his own C.o.D. stablemates just to get his hands on Samir.

Total Nonstop Action Wrestling

Brimstone was reported to be backstage at the live TNA Wrestling pay-per-view "No Surrender" on September 9, 2007, as well as the September 10, 2007 tapings of TNA iMPACT! with Justin Cage, and Lamar Braxton Porter. At this time, there are no reports that state whether or not Brimstone will be signing a contract with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling. He was seen casually speaking with TNA president Dixie Carter, among other people. He also assisted in the construction of the Six sides of steel on September 10, 2007 for the episode of TNA iMPACT! that aired on September 13, 2007.cite web |url=|title=Backstage at TNA |accessdate=2007-09-14 ]

In wrestling


The Brimstone gimmick has evolved over the years. Brimstone credits his favorite wrestling icons, "Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, and Ultimate Warrior," as the inspiration for the backbone of the character. In the beginning, he states that the evolution of Brimstone came from a mixture of all three unique qualities in what he claims are, “"darkness, charisma, and pure insanity".” Aside from looking for a name that would be, “"memorable and marketable"”, he is unsure of the actual reason why he chose the name itself. As he says, “"I just loved it and figured I could be a cool demonic character!"” The gimmick began simply as Brimstone played the big man role. He felt that his original look was far less than intimidating than his current image. Brimstone was originally clean-shaven and wore wrestling sneakers and a black singlet adorned with airbrushed flames. Brimstone says, “"I was no more than a wrestler that claimed to be from Hell."”

As Brimstone grew into the character, the persona began to develop along with the look. He took on more of a gothic look and incorporated his custom boots. He modeled his character to become fiercer and his attitude to become rougher. Brimstone became less of a man and more of a monster in the ring, and in his interviews he became grittier and raw. Aside from his size, his look made Brimstone a focal point in a match and solidified him as a fan favorite in different promotions, which promoters loved. Although Brimstone is a “heel”, he claims to be a “tweener” or “anti-hero” and is normally made into a “face” by the fans (similar to Demolition, Road Warriors, Steve Austin). In the ring, Brimstone the character is a, "dark entity that embodies destruction. Brimstone is a no nonsense character who will normally go out and dominate a match." Brimstone states, "I'm the kind of character now who is an unstoppable force in the ring where I'll go in and I'll clean house."

The Borderhounds

"The Borderhounds" is a comic book based heavily on Brimstone’s character. "The Borderhounds" is the brainchild of Brimstone himself and close friend Marcello Carnevali (a.k.a. Lord Clarence MacDougal). Carnevali is the main writer, with the duo continuously trading notes on the creative content. Creating the Brimstone character in “comic book” form had been a plan of Kucmierowski’s for a long time.cite web |url= |title=Borderhounds Company Info- Will |accessdate=2007-03-08 ] The character was supposed to be a part of the Master Comics series “Masters of the Ring,” however, due to lack of sales, it never gained the adequate speed needed. Later, Kucmierowski received the first official comic version of Brimstone by Dark Horse Comics comic artist Jacob Chabot. The result launched the search for a team to create "The Borderhounds". Brimstone recruited penciler Sajad J. Shah, whom he credits as one of the best comic artists in the world. [cite web |url= |title=Borderhounds Company Info- Sajad |accessdate=2007-03-08 ] Soon after, Al “Vandal” Chickering signed up as the inker for the project. Currently, Jasen Smith of Blue Water Entertainment has taken over the colorist duties. [cite web |url= |title=Borderhounds Company Info |accessdate=2007-03-08 ]

Although the comic is based on Brimstone the professional wrestler, it has nothing to do with wrestling. The only similarity is the fact that almost every character in the book itself is a real wrestler in comic form. For example, "The Borderhounds" characters are the founding members of the clique Critical Mass: Chris Hostile, Chavez Raoul (Jacob Dixon), and Mayhem (Michael Leon). Brimstone is flanked by his true to life sidekicks Dawg (Jose Castillo) and Luscious (Ed Castillo).

Brimstone has incorporated "The Borderhounds" more into his wrestling gimmick by updating his theme music to give a shout out to, “all the "Borderhounds" out there…”.cite web |url=,+wrestler&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=4&gl=us|title=PWBTS |accessdate=2007-04-13 ]
