Starting in 1983 the rare sight of identical twins showed up in the Poffo family promotion called International Championship Wrestling. Brad and Bart Batten would enter the wrestling business after Angelo Poffo saw dollar signs due to the rarity of identical twins in pro-wrestling. Through their career the twins would compete almost everywhere including Central States Wrestling, World Championship Wrestling, Southern States Wrestling, World Wrestling Council, World Class Championship Wrestling and various others.
The twins would have their most success in World Wrestling Council becoming headline stars in the island promotion holding the tag titles on six occasions. Neither Batten twin are very memorable names due to the fact that they never struck it big in a major promotion only having a short stay in WCW as job guys. Other than that both Brad and Bart would remain as local stars in their home area for the most part retiring in 2005 after a short retirement tour in West Virginia. In my opinion, the best way to describe the twins is that they had to jump around from promotion to promotion to keep themselves fresh and were victims of a down era in pro-wrestling.
