    I do indies, currently I am just doing Shotgun here in San Angelo. Between my knee, being a single father, and my day job, I just don't have the motivation to be on the road anymore. I've worked for Shotgun, Xplosive, West Texas, West Texas Championship, and what ever the hell Tommy is calling his federation now, he changes the name everytime he pisses somene off and can't book shows anymore.

    I've wrestled as Hades and under a mask as Silver Dragon, and filled in one night as Doink the Clown.

    Tommy, don't remember his last name, currently runs Buzzsaw in Southern Oklahoma. I haven't worked with him since he changed to Buzzsaw, and he changed names so often I didn't pay attention. He handed me $25 a show in Midland to lay my ass down and get pinned. I didn't care what the company name or who my opponent was.

    My old Avatar was me putting the Tarantula on Matrix circa 2001 during my only defense of the Xplosive Wrestling Television Title in Eden, TX. Where I also incited a riot with the asistance of Mike Wolf.

    Hah, cool stuff Peter!

    I entertained the though briefly of putting on about fifteen pounds and doing the indie rassilin thing...

    That was until I read Mick Foleys books and realized that I wasn't ready for a commitment like that. Anybody that loves the business enough to go through with it has my respect.

    Not to mention it seems like the only shows people put on in my area are the super bloody n' gimmicky hardcore matches, I'd much rather get into the more technical high-flying side of it, which it doesn't seem like there is much of a demand for anymore, atleast locally.

    Share some good stories if you got 'em.

    Oh yea, on topic, I really liked O'haires gimmick with the "Fight Club" mentality, when they put him with Piper I knew it was all over.

    I've talked some before here. Most of my stories are the dumbshit guys do, getting hurt and crap like that.

    Blood 'n' Guts...eh, it goes in cycles, but hardcore is about the easiest to do, you just bleed and the vampires howl. We all do it though, because it is a cheap thrill for the fans and as long as your opponent isn't a nutball, it's fairly safe, just bloody as hell.

    I appreciate the attention and all, but I don't want to turn this into a cock sucking thread for the benefit of my ego.

    Fair enough.

    And a "cock sucking thread" huh? I always heard that most rasslers were homosexuals... haha

    I kid, I kid.

    But yea, the hardcore style is just a bit too disturbing for me I guess, I will go play with my barbies if anybody needs me.

    Awsome Pete.

    You're like the 4th person I know here that got involved in pro wrestling. I trained but never had a real match. I sort of dropped the idea when I need stable work. The scene in FL at the time wasn't too great. (My audition to replace one of the original POWER RANGERS didn't work out too well either)

    Got an amusing story about that too, my karate instructor's instructor taught the Green Ranger. Small ass world. In '98 I had the choice of stunt school or pro-wrestling, and I picked wrestling.
