Austin Idol, also known as the “Universal Hearthrob” and Iron Mike McCord was an international Pro Wrestling Star who started his illustrious career in 1972. Idol survived a fatal plane crash in 1975 when the plane he was a passenger in went down in the middle of the waters of Tampa Bay. Austin made history when he defeated Jerry “The King” Lawler in a steel cage “Hair” match in Memphis,Tn April 27, 1987. Austin retired, or at least we think he retired, in 1993. Who really knows, look at Bret Favre? Visit Austin Idol’s website here:

For immediate release! Austin Idol and YNOT Athletics have made it official by announcing their newly formed partnership in what many savvy analysts believe could be the next “Big Brand” name in the Multi- Billion Dollar sports apparel industry.


Tony Campanella who is the creator and founder of the YNOT Brand and has a rich history with major sports apparel brands, was eager to expound on adding Idol to the YNOT Team.

“ Austin Idol makes a perfect fit for our company and we’re excited to have him on board as an owner and public relations personality,” he said. “If you look at Idol’s history in the great sport of Professional Wrestling and having always been a winner, we know his presence will be a natural for YNOT.”

Campanella went on to say that Austin Idol truly possesses the “Eye Of The Tiger” and has a relentless work ethic and passion for whatever he gets involved with. Campanella added, “We look forward to a long, healthy, and prosperous relationship with Austin as we move into the future with our corporations endeavors. We have much planned for YNOT to include, helping those less fortunate. The YNOT LOGO is totally different from any other in the world by having the unique ability to simultaneously pose a question or make an action statement!”

Campanella also explained, “ Here are a few thought provoking examples of a virtual endless supply of possibilities! 1) YNOT CURE CANCER!….2) YNOT MOTIVATE!….3) YNOT NYC! We can tag YNOT to any major corporate brand, municipality, charity, or practically any cause or campaign, and this is why so many are chomping at the bit to launch the YNOT Brand! “

Of course Idol had a few things to say about his new business relationship with Campanella and YNOT?

“When Tony and I started talking about this it became abundantly clear to me that YNOT was a no-brainer! It was a great opportunity for me to become involved in an ownership capacity. Once I started thinking about the incredible possibilities and options for YNOT, I would often wake up in the middle of the night with a new idea for a tee-shirt or corporate campaign theme. You can drive yourself silly thinking of a gazillion different ways the YNOT Logo can be used! We’re in preliminary discussion with a marketing/distribution firm located in Florida but, nothing has been finalized. Once we bring on the selected firm, we’ll shift into high gear and prepare for a Significant launch. In the meanwhile, all moving parts are operating smoothly as we continue to field inquiries from other marketing/distribution firms who are expressing interest in YNOT. Tony and I are working extremely close with selecting the perfect fit for the company that has the ability to send YNOT into the Stratosphere ! I love being part of something with astronomical potential plus the opportunity to help others. In my opinion, this is a winning formula and Austin Idol is proud to be a member of the YNOT Team! As more news develops, we’ll be sure to keep everyone informed.
