Summertime Showdowns


I swear that I will begin doing these blogs extra steadily. In some way they all the time get pushed again till I am amazed at how lengthy it has really been. This one has been sitting right here for over 2 weeks ready to be up to date.

It has been a chaotic month or so. 

I left Florida on Might fifteenth to move north for the summer season. I needed to rush to pack to prepare as a result of I used to be in Orlando Friday & Saturday at a Nationwide (perhaps world) TV Taping for a significant firm. Since we have filmed I have been on actual TV twice. Have you ever seen me?

Additionally, on the fifteenth of Might, I did a small shoot with 4 of us. My buddy had 2 new guys and we needed to movie a customized video earlier than I left. The brand new guys had been INTENSE! I beloved it. Discuss scorching, sweaty action-packed wrestling. Simply how I prefer it. It has been awhile since I’ve seen one thing that has gotten me excited for a match from some professional wrestlers…and these guys did it. Many occasions.

On the drive up from Florida, I made a pair pit stops to see some outdated favorites and even partake in a professional wrestling occasion in New Jersey. The occasion in NJ was a tiny “scholar present” in entrance of 10 followers. I bought to be managed by the all the time hilarious, Zach Reno. I feel between the two of us we knew everybody within the stands. We had a blast!

Did a shoot in Vegas on the finish of Might, which introduced some new faces to the combination. Davin Robust, Johnny from WrestleFrat and the previous Ricky Mandel all got here by. On prime of all these new faces on W4H, we shall be seeing a CLASSIC return – Chace LaChance is again within the ring. Take a look at the newest Behind The Scenes video when it comes out for some exclusives into what he is been doing and his plans for his return!

Talking of blasts from the previous, how did you just like the From The Vault matches? I wager you had been stunned to see Donnie Drake in motion. How about 2 younger hunks in myself and Jonny Firestorm? Man, the place do the years go?

Someplace in these travels (or perhaps whereas I used to be in Florida) I caught a case of the COVID. I did not even know I had it. Felt like allergic reactions or a slight chilly which I figured was regular given the pollen flying round within the Northeast and the shortage of sleep I would had for the previous couple of weeks. I solely came upon after I took a precautionary at-home take a look at to ensure I would be alright for the following day’s dwell wrestling occasion I used to be collaborating on. My second time (a minimum of) with COVID. 

Whereas I used to be down with COVID, I had a buddy drop off a professional wrestling ring for my yard. I determine if I am gonna be in Maine all summer season, I would do myself a favor (and stop an hour lengthy drive north and again) and do my wrestling exercises in my yard. The ring is outdated! Positively not one in every of these fashionable flex-beam rings. That is the old-fashioned spring-in-the-middle set ups. I’ve labored to freshen it up a bit. Make it a bit newer plus I added some extra padding to it. To date no complaints from me. 

My buddy lives in my outdated hometown in Maine. He hit me up a few fundraiser for a kid with most cancers. Come to search out out, the kid is said to my outdated Phys Ed trainer. My good friend talked about it might be cool to convey some leisure to the fundraiser whereas the bike raffle and balloon animals had been happening. I am telling you I got here from a small city. I feel we’ve a blinking cease mild and that is it. 

A handful of associates got here by to assist load the ring up the night time earlier than and fortunately they did. I had one other professional wrestling gig that night time so my time was restricted. As properly, the night time earlier than I used to be in Boston filming with Jonny, Forrest Taylor, Garrett Thomas, Justin Rage & Caleb Klein. So many individuals canceled on this shoot for one motive or one other.

Again to the story – the morning of the occasion in my childhood hometown, I obtained a name from my Aunt at virtually 6am. I let it ring hoping it was what I believed it was, however moments later my Grandmother adopted up with a name. I answered it and the concerns had been confirmed. My Uncle had handed away that morning. 

He had been sick for the final yr or so and I really flew up in February or March or April (I am terrible with time) to hold with him for the day after I heard he was planning to cease his therapy. I attempted to persuade my Aunt & Uncle to return to Florida to go to me so he might take pleasure in some sunshine and perhaps some inventory automobile racing or Monster Vehicles or some music or no matter, however they wished to stay near dwelling. 

In order that was a tough begin to that day. I would really been as much as go to him a pair occasions that week to help with some issues, however it gave the impression to be identified that not quite a lot of time was left.


The occasion that day was enjoyable. My Aunt and a pair cousins got here by to take their minds of the times starting tragedy in order that was a welcomed sight. I recorded the native wrestling occasion and I am considering it might be nice to just accept donations in alternate for sharing the footage. I will attempt to finalize the edited present quickly. Issues have been…….busy. 

Oh yeah – my nephew is sort of a grown man. He simply graduated eighth grade. Subsequent yr, he is formally a excessive schooler. He is clearly approach cooler than I’m. 

If I informed you the busyness of my life currently you would be bored to tears. 

I feel I am on the finish of an extended listing that hasn’t appear to have eased since earlier than the winter holidays. 

Lastly attending to the tip of over 1200 emails. Solely 300 left. I dealt with most of them within the first 3 days however I’ve hit a wall mentally, so please give me just a few days to search out one other burst of vitality. If you have not heard again from me but, shoot me one other electronic mail and I will attempt to observe up…or perhaps wait per week or so to see if I discover yours.

It is on my listing to do some interviews, however not quite a lot of you despatched in inquiries to ask these guys, so I may have to only have just a few grownup drinks and freestyle the questions. No matter involves thoughts is what I will ask. A minimum of give me some perception on who you wanna hear from first. Appears to take advantage of since to begin with Jonny Firestorm…however I would additionally wish to ask Austin Cooper, Ethan Andrews or Scrappy some questions. So throw it at me. Who ought to be first?

I’ve 3 or 4 professional reveals developing…and hopefully a nationwide gig. One this weekend (or perhaps 2 relying on my temper and the way my physique feels) then the 4th of July. Fireworks & Preventing. Must be enjoyable. Should you occur to be in Small City USA let me know and I will provide the location of our Patriotic Poundings. I am “selling” and “reserving” it, however actually I feel we’ll simply choose the names out of a hat since that sounds sinister. Hope the WWE Corridor of Fame Inductee does not thoughts my evil methods!

After that, I plan on performing some fishing. I’ve solely gone as soon as within the month plus that I have been up right here and I can not stare at a pc display for much longer with out going a bit insane.
