Before He Was Peter Orlov

Florida Championship Wrestling's Peter Orlov (5 ft. 7 in. tall, 187 pounds) has quite a colorful bio on the promotion's official online site (read it  here). But Alex Sherman -- yes, that's his real name -- is better known to indie wrestling fans as Alex Koslov. Alex made his pro debut in 2003 at the age of 19 and appeared in matches for Pro Wrestling Guerilla, NWA, and Empire Wrestling Federation until he moved to Mexico in 2006 where he became a bona fide star. A couple of years later he also made appearances on TNA and Ring Of Honor. Last year, WWE signed him to a developmental contract with FCW where he wrestles as Peter Orlov (he had to change his name because WWE already has a wrestler named Vladimir Koslov). Here are some pre-FCW pics of him and one fan's video tribute. Want to see more? Here's another fan video tribute.
