Brian Wohl (April 14, 1972) is an American professional wrestler better known under his ring name Julio Dinero.
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. Amin eventually became a Sting/Crow like character who was exposed by poor production values and slamming doors in the IPWA's home "arena", The Secret Cove in 1998.
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.
After being booked on the 1999 Heroes of Wrestling pay-per-view in 1999, he joined Extreme Championship Wrestling, where he formed a tag team with EZ Money known as Hot Commodity. 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. On September 24 the Gathering defeated the Disciples in a Dog Collar Match, but were hanged from the rafters using chains afterwards. Alexis Laree was hired by World Wrestling Entertainment, and on December 17 Punk and Wohl turned on Raven. They feuded with Raven for several weeks before being released.
Wohl continues to wrestle on the independent circuit, wrestling for KCW (Keystone Championship Wrestling) out of Altoona, PA and most recently debuted in DCW (Diamond Championship Wrestling) based in central PA. Wohl has also worked as security for the 9:30 club in Washington DC for several years. He makes appearances at the indy wrestling fed based in NJ BodySlam Wrestling Organization (BWO).
On September 18, 2010 he and tag team partner "Dirty Don" Montoya won the Bodyslam Wrestling Organizition "Tag Team Turmoil' tournament in Elmwood Park (formerly East Paterson), NJ. They went on to beat the Saints of Lodi to win the BWO tag team titles. However, Montoya retired immediately after winning the belts.
