Summertime Blues

Not sufficient fishing. Not sufficient swimming. Not sufficient BBQing. I miss when Summertime was all about staying up late, watching trash TV and working round with your mates. This summer season has been continuous…or no less than it appears. I lastly compelled myself to decelerate the final week or so.


Had a couple of associates come up for the 4th of July vacation weekend, however did not have a lot time to hang around as I needed to prep my ring for takedown and set-up on the native Group Pageant. My buddy runs the occasion and requested if I might placed on some wrestling for them. It was a demanding time – the EXACT OPPOSITE of how I like my Independence Day. I actually get into 2 holidays – that is Christmas & the times round July 4th…even my bday is not as standard with me as these days (or instances of yr).

Anyway, the occasion was extra demanding than I might’ve favored. It was an attractive summer season day, not too sizzling, however the wrestlers appeared to not take the occasion as critical as I believed they need to. Now I get it, it is a small city 4th of July neighborhood days fashion occasion. A couple of hundred folks, however we had been the leisure. All eyes had been on us and this was an excellent alternative to showcase what we do in entrance of people that do not sometimes have this expertise. 

The spotlight was once I was ARRESTED BY THE COPS! I’ve all the time been a fan of old-school wrestling stunts – a wrestler ripping up a followers signal, a wild drunk fan leaping within the ring and the dangerous man wrestlers getting escorted out of the constructing in handcuffs. Initially I figured I might be the great man (the babyface) since I truly spent a couple of good years of my childhood only a mile from the fairgrounds. The truth is, I received Most Critical Expression once I was a child. That is proper – I used to be a champion from the beginning 🙂 For those who get an opportunity try my professional wrestling twitter (however please be acceptable) to see the image of me getting lifted within the air and handcuffed on the occasion. My buddy has some video footage and a drone shot of it. Once I get a while I am going to put it collectively so that you can see.


I had so much to do the following day as I made the 8 hour drive (in fact, it took longer than that) to Upstate New York to do some “additional work” at a giant league wrestling promotion. I did not get to wrestle, which was a bit shocking to be trustworthy. Hopefully subsequent time – and hopefully earlier than later. I am working out of miles on these boots. 

I did spend about 10 hours wandering round backstage, getting skilled images taken, consuming some fine quality catering and having many awkward interactions. I am unsure if it was the annoyance of strangers coming as much as you or the dearth of social expertise or perhaps it is simply the “enterprise” but it surely made me giggle (and typically unhappy) that a few of these guys went out of their solution to flip away when somebody went to say hey or acknowledge them in passing. 

Spent most the evening out and in of the catering room or filling seats. I gotta inform ya, if this wrestling factor would not work out then I am gonna go professional at being a fan. For those who get an opportunity to see any of the episodes I used to be seat-filling on then you definitely’ll see me HOOTIN-AND-HOLLERING!

Was a cool expertise even acquired to sit down subsequent to a WRESTLING LEGEND that I watched as a child whereas watching the TV present reside backstage. The 16+ hour drive there and again was brutal. 2 Nights in a lodge. No ring time. It burnt me out. I believe subsequent I wanna do film or tv present work. Have you learnt go about that?


Since then it has been per week plus of recovering and being lazy aside from one different professional wrestling reserving towards a pair associates. It was straightforward. It was enjoyable. It was an excellent time. 

I am simply getting again round to getting again into work mode – even did a shoot in Las Vegas with a pair new guys. I believe you may like these guys. 


The remainder of the summer season is gonna embody some fishing, some extra shoots and a few wrestling. We’ll have the ring again up in my yard subsequent week for extra apply time with associates. I have been getting a TON of latest gear for professional and hero stuff, so this fall I plan to do extra with that.

As effectively, I will be performing some small occasions round New England earlier than coming again to the Tampa space this Fall the place I plan to do weekly occasions in October below a Halloween theme. Any concepts to make this higher? 


Lately, I used to be emailed by a reporter/journalist about an article he was doing about “Jobbers.” He talked about he discovered some movies on YouTube and located the feedback part intriguing. He had a couple of questions that I gave horrible solutions to, so perhaps you possibly can inform me what it’s in regards to the JOBBER WORLD that’s interesting or that attracted you into it.

Or perhaps he is already acquired the solutions within the article. I imply Sean Pford gave his perception and I belief his opinion usually. 

Enter Journal Article –


We now have completed the First Spherical within the Chase For The Championship Collection. 8  Elite Opponents have been diminished to the Closing 4. Some sizzling debuts in Spherical 1, however I can promise you the motion and depth heats up in Spherical 2. Chase Sinn is a World-Class professional wrestler who simply has essentially the most wrestling information of the remaining contenders. He’ll tackle Drew Harper in Spherical 2. Drew has are available in burning sizzling on the underground wrestling scene and has picked up quite a lot of information. Nevertheless, he’ll not be capable to match Chase within the talent division so he’ll should depend on energy, energy and a few youthful exuberance to squeak into the Finals for the W4H Championship.

I believe we’re all conscious of Gabe Steele’s strengths, however I do know his weaknesses and I plan to take advantage of them in Spherical 2 once we sq. off. Hell, I’ve additionally been holding again towards these others. Some actual competitors might wake me up and reveal what has been hidden inside me for too lengthy – ANOTHER LEVEL! Gabe can deliver all his soiled tips and his wonderful apparel – but it surely’s gonna take greater than wanting fairly and finding out a couple of episodes of GLOW to beat me.

Spherical 2 will undergo the Autumn and we could have a W4H Champion topped by Christmas with the custom-made one-of-a-kind Championship Belt!

 Who’s your choose to win W4H Championship?
