Career

Wohl debuted in 1994 after training at the Baltimore Wrestling Factory under Axl Rotten and Hack Myers. While wrestling on the independent circuit he worked as an accountant during the day.

In the mid to late 90's Wohl competed along the east coast in various indy promotions. Among these included the IPWA (Independent Pro Wrestling Association) Wohl was originally cast as the manager of a group known as the "Rat Pack." Jimmy Cicero and Sean "Showtime" Powers comprised that team lead by the genius of Wohl's character known as Sheik Ali Amin.

In the late 1990s Wohl worked for both World Championship Wrestling (as Julio Sanchez) and the World Wrestling Federation (as Sanchez or Julio Fantastico). He was a jobber in both promotions, wrestling dark matches and on B-Shows such as WCW Thunder and Sunday Night HEAT. While in the WWF, he was sent to the Funkin' Dojo to train with Dory Funk, Jr. and Tom Prichard.

Wohl was renamed Julio Dinero and given the character of a gigolo. He made his ECW pay-per-view debut on November 5, 2000 at November To Remember 2000. Wohl remained with ECW until the promotion went bankrupt in March 2001.

On April 16, 2003 Wohl debuted in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling as part of The Gathering, Raven's stable. Along with Raven, CM Punk and Alexis Laree, Wohl feuded with Shane Douglas and the Disciples of the New Church.
