This is the first in a different style of interview for us. 5 Questions seemed to run it’s course. Enjoy.
MWT: First off. How hard is it to get like 35 Championship belts thru airport security?
It’s actually the most difficult thing I’ve ever done. One time when I tried to get the Party Monster Championship through security I got stopped for questioning because the title had spikes on it and they considered it dangerous. Explaining to them that I’m a champion wrestler was the most grueling few minutes of my life. They also threw away the Faygo I was trying to smuggle back into Vegas.
MWT: That’s heartbreaking…what flavors?
I had Peach and Moon Mist. I ended up ordering a full case of each when I got home.
Speaking of respect. Do you think it’s disrespectful that some people consider you a “comedy” wrestler? Or do you think it’s a situation where any publicity is good publicity?
I don’t take it as disrespectful at all. I built that reputation for myself. Now it’s just a matter of proving to them that I can do more than that. There’s nothing wrong with being a comedy wrestler in my eyes, I just want to be known as a versatile wrestler that can fill any role on a show rather than just one.
Now on the subject of respect… what do you think would have gotten you smacked harder? Mentioning Kayla Kassidy’s complete “Dumptruck of an ass” or asking her “Is that your ass or is your momma half reindeer”?
Look I’m gonna take this time to defend myself. A dumper is a good thing. Dumptruck Ass is a compliment. It isn’t my fault that the rest of the country is behind on popular slang. I’ve complimented many a dumptruck in my day and never got slapped for it until Kayla. We’re working on communicating better now.
MWT: I always thought that particular compliment was reserved for Pixar moms.
Yo Mrs. Incredible is pretty thicc.
While we are talking about regional differences, how is the Midwest scene different from lovely Las Vegas?
Honestly, the Midwest has been a completely pleasant experience. Everyone builds each other up and wants everyone to succeed. The west coast can be kinda “dog eat dog” at times. Versus out in Vegas is doing a great job at changing the culture though. They’re building a family environment and it’s refreshing to say the least. One thing both scenes have in common though is that I’m the face of both.
MWT: And a handsome face at that. Covid has messed shit up for everyone in the last year. Was there a match or show Covid cost you that really bothers you?
I might get in trouble for mentioning these but for the sake of transparency, I was supposed to wrestle Suge D at Versus and AJ Gray at Party Hard Wrestling. I’m hoping they both can still happen whenever things are a bit safer, but it bugs me every day that they didn’t happen as planned. Those two are two of the best in the world and sharing a ring with either is a dream.
MWT: That’s awesome. So what is your big goal in wrestling? Like, do you want to be a super over traveling Indie person or sign a contract somewhere and coast until you are 50 and do a 13 part interview series on the Network?
I I want to be a cult classic. I wanna be the underground punk rock of wrestling. I wanna work as many places as I can for as long as I can and be able to support myself purely off of wrestling. A contract has never been my end goal, and probably never will. That’s not saying I wouldn’t sign a contract if it was offered, but my main focus is on the indies.

MWT: Last question. What was the most important moment in your career and why was it holding the MWT Championship Chain?
Don’t get me wrong, holding the MWT Chain is one of the things I’m most proud of in life, not just in wrestling. It was my ticket to the dance. It was what I needed to prove that I can hang with the best indie wrestlers in the world. But my most important moment was wrestling in front of my friend Felicia. She came to the last Party Hard show before the pandemic shut down live crowds and it was her first time seeing me live. I took a big move and fell out of the ring and made her help me get up, and then we got to drink after and she was smiling the whole time. Unfortunately Felicia would pass away a few months later and I’m thankful wrestling gave me one last memory with my friend, and a very happy one at that.
(Sorry if that’s too heavy)
MWT: No sir. That’s perfect.
