1. The finish only. Wrestling is about inscinct. The workers who designed a match entirely did it out of obsessiveness and compulsive need for control. Things break down, crowd responds differently then how you expect. A good worker crafts the match as it goes on like a web.

 

2. As a former state qualifyer in impromptu speaking, naturally it's the "wing" it style. I thrive off my emotions. My heart speaks to me best.

 

3. Only for special occasion. Those who blade consistantly do it for style or to compenstate. Blood, a true gusher is special and should be used for the right occasions.

 

4. Strong Style. I would employ it because it's a sound style that doesn't come off rehershed.

 

5. If im asking the worke to trust me, I should trust them. If I have any doubts about their abilities, I dont get in the ring with them. I'll take the "dangerous" manuvers if I trust them.

 

6. Scientific matches laced with storytelling. I'd refuse to partake in hack em up brawling.

 

7. I would have to determine if I have the charisma to attract attention alone but I've always liked Managers because they should add to the environment

 

8. Just about anything WWE's braintrust has come up with, anything that discriminates without substance or meaning. I would love anything that is creative, original and most importantly realistic enough but perfectly suitible for the wrestling world.

 

9. Ring of Honor. I'd like to stay close to home and work where I'm not worried about national spotlight. Where I know my work is valued and consistantly forced to raise my own personal bar. I wouldn't want to work for any hardcore based promotions such as XPW or what-not.

 

10. NWA 80's. WCW Late 90's.

 

11. Bryan Danielson, CM Punk, Homicide, Chris Benoit, Christian and Austin Aries, I would work with. Against? Anyone with less then a year's worth of training.

 

12. Arn Anderson, Dean Melenko and Curt Hening. I would not want to work with any of the cartoon fatties of the 80's.

Depends on who you're working with. If your in there with someone who can go balls out and knows what they're doing, just play on instinct. If your in there with someone green/incompetant, then I think you should lay some stuff out beforehand. Not everything, but the main points and spots.

 

Like to have your promo's scripted? Or just be given a couple of bullet points, and wing the rest?

 

Wing it. I'm good on my feet. I don't need a script line for line. Besides, like matches, promos should depend on the reaction you're getting.

 

Blade often? Only on occasion? Would you rather never blade at all?

 

Only on occasion, to make it special. Espeically since I'm a female, it'd be *that* much special.

 

What style would you like to wrestle? Why would you prefer to employ that particular style over others?

 

Ah, I think that the best of wrestlers incorporate all types of style. It's stupid to limit yourself. But for the most part, I think I'd do the whole strong style with some funky chain wrestling moves in there. European style chain wrestling is great to watch.

 

Refuse to take certain moves? Only take them when working with certain wrestlers?

 

If I trust who I'm in the ring with, I'm game for just about anything.

 

Are there any match types you'd like to wrestle in a lot? Some match types you'd rather never have to work in?

 

I'd love to intergender matches. It's not a huge jump, since the guys that I'm fans of on the indy scene aren't huge, so it isn't completley unrealistic. I'm not talking about going toe to toe with Kane here. I couldn't really see myself doing something like an Ultimate X match where it's just spot-spot-spot with no real rhyme or reason.

 

What style of normal match would you like to do the most? Would you prefer to sell or to dominate? Would you like to do long matches?

 

I'm in the thinking that it depends on who I'm there with and what their style is. I think, as a heel, I'd be a better dominator (assuming I'm wrestling girls here), but no overtly so. More being a smart heel who takes advantage. That way, when face, it won't be a huge jump to go from dominator to seller. I'd love to do long matches. Not ironman matches, but a good solid 25 minute match? Fuck yeah.

 

Would you like to have a manager or valet to work spots with or would you rather just do it all yourself?

 

I'd never have a valet, because that would take attention away from the females in the ring. I don't think I'd do well with a manager personally. If I'm in a group though, then yeah, I wouldn't mind them to work shit out with.

 

Are there some types of angles that you would refuse to do? Some types of angles that you'd love to do?

 

I'd hate to do anything to requires me to do anything in my bra and panties, ha. And I'd strongly be opposed to doing something where either girl was just degraded (IE Molly being a fatass) because it just doesn't make for an interesting feud. I'd love to do the classic betrayal feud. Et tu Brutus?

 

What promotion would you like to work for the most? What promotion would you hate to work for?

 

Well, I'd love to work with Shimmer Wrestling about now. As of right this second, I'd hate to work in WWE and be doing shit like the Diva Fantasy battle royal

 

Any wrestlers today that you'd like to work against? Any you would avoid working against at all costs?

 

On the indy scene, I'd love to work with Rebecca Knox, Mickie Knuckles, Molly Holly, Lacey, Mischif...the good batch of female wrestlers. Guys wise, I'd love to do some stuff with London, Spanky, Noble, AmDrag a couple local guys here (in particular Scotty Mac and Idol)...actually, just about any good junior. My dream would be to work with, as way unrealistic it is, Chris Benoit. Man, I wish I had a set of balls sometimes....As for who I wouldn't want to work against, I think I'd say the diva search girls who haven't been trained. Other than that, it's fun to have a challenge.

 

What wrestlers from the past would you like to work against? What wrestlers from the past would you not want to work against?

Owen Hart, without a doubt. I absolutely worship his style of wrestling. As for not, uh, Sable maybe?

 

This was pretty strange to do from a female perspecitive, I must say.

Nothing other than the finish and any imporant spots gets planned beforehand. Everything else is called on the fly.

Like to have your promo's scripted? Or just be given a couple of bullet points, and wing the rest?

 

I wouldn't talk tongue.gif

 

Blade often? Only on occasion? Would you rather never blade at all?

 

Rarely if ever. Only if I was in there brawling with a guy who was as big/tough as me.

What style would you like to wrestle? Why would you prefer to employ that particular style over others?

 

I'd probably wrestle like a Terry Gordy or Steve Williams. I'm a similar build to those guys, but I wouldn't want to be a pure brawler like Hansen. So I guess that would be kind of like a hybrid American-Japanese style. A bit of brawling, a bit of matwork, a few suplexes/powerbombs.

 

Refuse to take certain moves? Only take them when working with certain wrestlers?

 

Wouldn't refuse to take any specific moves, just probably wouldn't be able to take sick neck bumps like some smaller guys.

 

Are there any match types you'd like to wrestle in a lot? Some match types you'd rather never have to work in?

 

I wouldn't work deathmatches, that's for sure. Any other "traditional" matches are fine.

 

What style of normal match would you like to do the most? Would you prefer to sell or to dominate? Would you like to do long matches?

I'd probably be the guy who beats up on the smaller face, then the face has to make a big comeback. Not quite Vader-Sting style (because I wouldnt be as heavy as Vader) but think Hansen/Gordy vs. Kawada/Tenryu. In that kind of match, going long doesn't work in singles, but it does in tags. So the length would just depend on that.

 

Would you like to have a manager or valet to work spots with or would you rather just do it all yourself?

 

I wouldn't mind a hot chick valet...No one who would get involved in the match though. Not a fan of outside interference.

 

Are there some types of angles that you would refuse to do? Some types of angles that you'd love to do?

 

Depends. If it was WWE-creative, there'd be plenty of crap I wouldn't do. If it was a good booking team, then I doubt they'd come with anything so moronic.

 

What promotion would you like to work for the most? What promotion would you hate to work for?

 

I'd probably like to work for NOAH. Tour schedule is nice, the pay isn't bad and their wrestling product is great. They're probably the most stable company in Japan. I'd hate to work for WWE, just because I know what a classless organization they are. Obviously sleazy indies wouldn't be great to work for either.

 

What promotion of the past would you most liked to have worked for? What promotion would you have hated working for the most?

 

80's/early 90's All Japan would have been great. The foreigners really got great pushes, the company was doing strong business and Baba was supposedly the most honest promoter a lot of guys have ever worked for. Sounds like a good place to be.

 

Any wrestlers today that you'd like to work against? Any you would avoid working against at all costs?

 

Working Taue would be fun. I would love to wrestle Tanahashi, just because he'd take such a good beating from me. I'd probably avoid working a lot of the roid stiffs in WWE, just because they're sloppy and they suck in the ring.

 

What wrestlers from the past would you like to work against? What wrestlers from the past would you not want to work against?

 

Working against Andre would have been neat. He seemed like a good guy as long as you were respectful. I wouldn't want to work against The Sheik or Abdullah. Not really interested in getting ripped up by some guys who don't know how to do anything else.

Prefer to be given only finish and call everything else in the ring? Lay the entire match out beforehand? I prefer just the finish and perhaps a spot or two that are essential to the story of the match and/or storyline.

 

Like to have your promo's scripted? Or just be given a couple of bullet points, and wing the rest? Bullet points for what needs to get over. The scripted promo is what is killing promos these days. If you can't cut a promo on the fly effectively, you shouldn't have a mic in your face until you can.

 

Blade often? Only on occasion? Would you rather never blade at all? Hardly, if ever. I like my forehead. Only at the climax of a major feud would I even consider it.

 

What style would you like to wrestle? Why would you prefer to employ that particular style over others? I'd prefer either All Japan late 80's-early 90's or New Japan style throughout the 90's. Just some of the best in ring storytelling and booking you will see from promotions.

 

Refuse to take certain moves? Only take them when working with certain wrestlers? I'm not too keen on head dropping or getting punched directly in the mouth. Other than that, I'm open for anything.

 

Are there any match types you'd like to wrestle in a lot? Some match types you'd rather never have to work in? I'd just prefer to wrestle in straight up matches. I wouldn't cry if I never worked a death match or anything where you scale something high like Ultimate X or a scaffold match.

 

What style of normal match would you like to do the most? Would you prefer to sell or to dominate? Would you like to do long matches? Probrably All Japan style. Hard hitting and realistic. Bret Hart would be about as whacky as I'd like to take things. As far as selling or dominating, depends on if I'm the heel or face. If I'm the heel, I would prefer to dominate and then feed the face a huge, furious comeback. If I'm the face, I'd sell like a mother and then bring the fury of Ricky Steamboat to the comeback. Another thing is to consider is how much bigger/smaller my opponent is. As far as long matches, depends on the circumstances. I hate when matches go long just for the sake of going long. (see HHH vs HBK HITC from Bad Blood 04 and HHH vs Taker from KOTR 02)

 

Would you like to have a manager or valet to work spots with or would you rather just do it all yourself? Not really, but if it helps me get over, I'm not opposed to working with someone. I hate outside interference, but as long as the interference has nothing to do with the finish, I'm not totally opposed.

 

Are there some types of angles that you would refuse to do? Some types of angles that you'd love to do? Anything having to do with violence against women or racially charged/based angles. Other than that, I'm pretty open.

 

What promotion would you like to work for the most? What promotion would you hate to work for? Currently, probrably NOAH or CMLL from an in ring standpoint. For money, it's unfortunately probrably WWE. I'd hate to work for NJPW right now since it's a sinking ship and WWE isn't far behind.

 

What promotion of the past would you most liked to have worked for? What promotion would you have hated working for the most? All Japan in the late 80's all the way through the 90's or New Japan in the 90's. I'd hate to work WCW from either 93-95 or 99-it's death. WWE in 2002 was awful as well.

 

Any wrestlers today that you'd like to work against? Any you would avoid working against at all costs? For a good match, it can be any of the following: Benoit, Guerrero, Rey, Joe, Aries, Homicide, Punk, Nagata, Kobashi, Tanahashi, Gibson, Tenryu. I'd avoid working against guys who got called up too soon who could hurt me: Snitsky, Heidenreich, Lashley (for now), Grenier, Boogeyman.

 

What wrestlers from the past would you like to work against? What wrestlers from the past would you not want to work against? Jumbo, Harley, Junkyard Dog, the Bulldogs.

Unless I’m in with a greenhorn who can’t find the ground with his hat, just give me a finish and I’ll call the rest on the fly.

 

Like to have your promo's scripted? Or just be given a couple of bullet points, and wing the rest?

 

Give me a point to make, and let me do the rest on my own. Scripted promos are killing the emotion and creativity of the business.

 

Blade often? Only on occasion? Would you rather never blade at all?

 

I’d do an Eddie Guerrero at Judgement Day 2003 once a year.

 

What style would you like to wrestle? Why would you prefer to employ that particular style over others?

 

I’d like to wrestle a technical style, ala Ricky Steamboat. I like the idea of actually wrestling, with fighting with my opponent over holds and counters.

 

Refuse to take certain moves? Only take them when working with certain wrestlers?

 

I wouldn’t take any moves that see me land on my head. Sorry Kenta.

Are there any match types you'd like to wrestle in a lot? Some match types you'd rather never have to work in?

 

One hour Iron Man matches from time to time would be nice. I would never do any stupid death match stuff, with light tubes, fire or crap like that. However, I wouldn’t be against doing a barbed wire match (with the wire kept to just being wrapped over the ropes) once in a blue moon.

 

What style of normal match would you like to do the most? Would you prefer to sell or to dominate? Would you like to do long matches?

 

Long, 30-minute matches with lots of wrestling, counters and the like. I’d prefer to sell for the most part, because I’d be a babyface and the heel is meant to lead.

 

Would you like to have a manager or valet to work spots with or would you rather just do it all yourself?

 

If I was a heel, then I would like to have a manager, ala Jim Cornette, to work spots with and get heat.

 

Are there some types of angles that you would refuse to do? Some types of angles that you'd love to do?

 

I would refuse to do anything that I couldn’t watch with a non-fan in the room. To me, if I can’t watch an angle with a non-fan in the room, then it’s not something I want to be a part of. I’d love to do a heel turn angle akin to Ole turning on Dusty in Atlanta, where the fans just go nuts.

 

What promotion would you like to work for the most? What promotion would you hate to work for?

 

Right now, NOAH, because I wouldn’t have to worry about stupid booking or political bullshit. I’d loath working for WWE for all the obvious reasons.

 

What promotion of the past would you most liked to have worked for? What promotion would you have hated working for the most?

 

Mid-South, All Japan, or New Japan. I would have hated working for WWE because of the insane travel schedule.

 

Any wrestlers today that you'd like to work against? Any you would avoid working against at all costs?

 

I’d like to work against Samoa Joe, Jushin Liger, Christopher Daniels, AJ Styles, Kenta Kobashi, Brock Lesnar, and Honkytonk Man. I’d avoid working against big juiced up clods who can’t stick their thumb up their ass. That means no Snitsky, Heidenreich, Masters, etc.

 

What wrestlers from the past would you like to work against? What wrestlers from the past would you not want to work against?

 

Ricky Steamboat, Bret Hart, Keiji Muto and Kenta Kobashi in their primes, Vader, Hiroshi Hase; people who can work their asses off and are not afraid to do so. I’d refuse to work against juice heads who can’t work a lick, though I’d be tempted to work against Tom Magee just to see if I can do what only Bret Hart was able to.

Lay out the finishing sequence and possible high spots, call the rest while on the fly.

 

Like to have your promo's scripted? Or just be given a couple of bullet points, and wing the rest?

Wing all of it. Brings human emotion into play and causes it to seem like it's coming from the heart.

 

Blade often? Only on occasion? Would you rather never blade at all?

Only once in a great while. Blood in wrestling is meant to be a special thing.

 

What style would you like to wrestle? Why would you prefer to employ that particular style over others?

Strong style. The stiffness of the blows makes the crowd feel as if they are experiencing something very "realistic".

 

Refuse to take certain moves? Only take them when working with certain wrestlers?

I'd be ok with being dropped in my head or punched in the mouth. I don't think I'd be too keen with taking a huge bump similar to what the garbage wrestlers will take.

 

Are there any match types you'd like to wrestle in a lot? Some match types you'd rather never have to work in?

I'd mostly want to wrestle in straight up matches. Only matches that I wouldn't wrestle in are scaffold matches and deathmatches.

 

What style of normal match would you like to do the most? Would you prefer to sell or to dominate? Would you like to do long matches?

I'd prefer to be the heel that dominates the match and feeds the babyface to make their huge comeback. If I were in any long matches, I'd much rather have the match go back and forth.

 

Would you like to have a manager or valet to work spots with or would you rather just do it all yourself?

I'd like to have a manager if it helped me to get over. I wouldn't mind outside interference as long as it wasn't the finish. I'm a fan of clean finishes.

 

Are there some types of angles that you would refuse to do? Some types of angles that you'd love to do?

I'd do anything that I could watch with a non-fan. If I were to be a face, I'd like to be "Pillmanized". Feeds the fire and helps to build sympathy.

 

What promotion would you like to work for the most? What promotion would you hate to work for?

I would like to work for NOAH or TNA. From the TNA perspective, I'd love to be one of the people that could lead them to the top. I wouldn't like to work for WWE at all.

 

What promotion of the past would you most liked to have worked for? What promotion would you have hated working for the most?

I'd like to work for 80's NWA or WCW circa August 1996. I would have hated working for 80's WWF because the travel schedule was tough.

 

Any wrestlers today that you'd like to work against? Any you would avoid working against at all costs?

I'd love to work with Lesnar, Samoa Joe, Kobashi, Regal, Tenryu and oddly, Abyss. I wouldn't work with Michaels at this point and time, because he would make my style of wrestling look weak while making his comeback, and he would totally ruin the whole structure of the match that I had built up.

 

What wrestlers from the past would you like to work against? What wrestlers from the past would you not want to work against?

Steamboat, Vader, Hase, Savage and Flair. Wouldn't want to work against Hogan, Warrior, Dusty and Nash. Those guys would attempt to put themselves over at my expense.

If you were a wrestler, would you:

 

Prefer to be given only finish and call everything else in the ring? Lay the entire match out beforehand?

 

Depends on how long id been wrestling for and how long my opponent had been wrestling for.

 

Like to have your promo's scripted? Or just be given a couple of bullet points, and wing the rest?

 

Bullet points, although i wouldunt want to cut a promo untill i had practiced a lot off camera.

 

Blade often? Only on occasion? Would you rather never blade at all?

 

I think that if theres blood often in a promotion, let alone from one wrestler it will burn the fans out on it, and no longer seem special. So, only on rare occasion and only in main events.

 

What style would you like to wrestle? Why would you prefer to employ that particular style over others?

 

Dunno, i would have to try different things out in the ring and see what works before i could answer this.

 

 

Refuse to take certain moves? Only take them when working with certain wrestlers?

 

Any head drops, or any kind of carear threatening bump really.

 

Are there any match types you'd like to wrestle in a lot? Some match types you'd rather never have to work in?

 

Only singles and tags, if you wrestle in too many gimmick matches then fans wont care when you dont.

 

What style of normal match would you like to do the most? Would you prefer to sell or to dominate? Would you like to do long matches?

 

Depends on my position in the company compared to my opponents, as well as any circumstances that would make one wrestler more likely to dominate. I would only like to do long matches if i had enough experience with filling time.

 

Would you like to have a manager or valet to work spots with or would you rather just do it all yourself?

 

No, because ive always prefered trying to achieve something on my own than as part of a team. I also have a nasty habbit of reliying on the other person to much in those situations.

 

Are there some types of angles that you would refuse to do? Some types of angles that you'd love to do?

 

I wouldunt want to do any angles that involve sex or racism, i think that apart from that id just love to do angles period.

 

What promotion would you like to work for the most? What promotion would you hate to work for?

 

Id like to work for a japanese promotion, since they seem to be fairly patient as far as bulding their wrestlers up go's. Id hate to work for All Star Wrestling, here in England since its essensially a load of pantomime crap.

 

What promotion of the past would you most liked to have worked for? What promotion would you have hated working for the most?

 

NWA circa early 70's to mid 80's, since the expireince of travelling from promotion to promotion learning how to wrestle would just be invaluble. Id hate working for WCW from 1997 - 2000, since it had so much great talent in this period and sqaundered most of it.

 

Any wrestlers today that you'd like to work against? Any you would avoid working against at all costs?

 

Id like to work with Eddie Gurreou ( never can spell his name right) since hes probably the best in the world at the moment. I wouldunt want to work against Low Ki, or A.J Styles, since their matches are gennerally very much about themselves.

 

What wrestlers from the past would you like to work against? What wrestlers from the past would you not want to work against?

 

Id like to work against Harley Race in the 70's so i could observe first hand how to put a lower ranked wrestler over, whilst not taking away from yourself. I wouldunt like to work with Bruiser Brody or Billy Robinson, because of the storys i have heard of them putting themsef over at the expense of their opponent, or shooting on him mid match.

I like the idea of laying the story of the match out before hand, as well as key (high) spots and perhaps some of the more intricate stuff. I can't imagine myself remembering anything more than a few points, let alone the entire match lay out.

 

Like to have your promo's scripted? Or just be given a couple of bullet points, and wing the rest?

 

Bullet Points. I've done my fair share of public speaking and business presentations and I find this style works best, as long as you know what you're talking about.

 

Blade often? Only on occasion? Would you rather never blade at all?

 

Oh. I am far too pretty too gussy up my face with blade scars. Real Answer: When I need to.

 

What style would you like to wrestle? Why would you prefer to employ that particular style over others?

 

UWF-I style. "Catch" wrestling, I suppose it's called. Why? Because it's easier than regular wrestling, yet you can do a lot with it. Less dangerous, for the most part, as well. Feed holds, grab holds, go from one to another if its not working or if it's reversed. Mix it up occasionally with some southern brawling and All Japan dramatics.

 

Refuse to take certain moves? Only take them when working with certain wrestlers?

 

Any move that hurts... basically.

 

Are there any match types you'd like to wrestle in a lot? Some match types you'd rather never have to work in?

 

2/3 falls matches. You can do a lot with the psychology. Ladder matches... basically matches where you fall down hard on something really hard...

 

What style of normal match would you like to do the most? Would you prefer to sell or to dominate? Would you like to do long matches?

 

Well, 2/3 fall matches go long. My regular matches wouldn't - maybe 10 minutes tops, average would be 6 or 7 minutes. I dunno. I think I'd be good at selling, mainly because I sell stuff in everyday life, like a playful thwap on the shoulder I tend to act like I just got shot, and I usually get "are you ok?" in response. I am pretty melodramatic. I'm also a size where I can realistically dominate and get beat up, so it doesn't really matter.

 

Would you like to have a manager or valet to work spots with or would you rather just do it all yourself?

 

Valet. Mainly so I can have something nice to look at. *Stasiak*

 

Are there some types of angles that you would refuse to do? Some types of angles that you'd love to do?

 

Those really dumb ones by the WWE. I wouldn't do those. I'd probably get fired for laughing at it... or slapped by Jim Cornette. A Teacher/Student angle would be sweet. But so would a grudge match.

 

What promotion would you like to work for the most? What promotion would you hate to work for?

 

There isn't a promotion (besides UStyle) that would successfully integrate my style, so I would, like, not wrestle. Hey, that's what I do right now smile.gif . Not work for? ROH. It would go way over their heads ("So... do we... CLAP... now?")

 

What promotion of the past would you most liked to have worked for? What promotion would you have hated working for the most?

 

UWF-i! Hated? Um, UWF! Herb version.

 

Any wrestlers today that you'd like to work against? Any you would avoid working against at all costs?

 

Tamura. I would avoid HHH.

 

What wrestlers from the past would you like to work against? What wrestlers from the past would you not want to work against?

 

Karl Gotch would have been awesome. Lou Thesz too. Inoki maybe. Not want to work against? Hansen.

I actually would love to work heel in ROH, just so I could mock them clapping for the indy standoff thing. Has any heel done that yet? Because as a heel the crowd should, you know, not really clap for you.

IIRC, EZ Money used to throw little pissy fits when the crowd would cheer for one, but nothing over the top.

Prefer to be given only finish and call everything else in the ring? Lay the entire match out beforehand?

 

Eh, lay it out beforehand but have the flexibility to change it if the crowd is completely crapping on it or someone forgets his/her spot.

 

Like to have your promo's scripted? Or just be given a couple of bullet points, and wing the rest?

 

Bulletpoints. Just so I know where I'm going w/ the promo. If I get stuck, I'll just wrap it up.

 

Blade often? Only on occasion? Would you rather never blade at all?

 

I'd be scared to death of blading but could probably be talked into it now and again. Especially, if it means fatter checks.

 

What style would you like to wrestle? Why would you prefer to employ that particular style over others?

 

A technical style I guess. If nothing else, I'd like to be findamentally sound and slowly build my repotoire (sp?) as I progress.

 

Refuse to take certain moves? Only take them when working with certain wrestlers?

 

If I trust the wrestler, I'd take just about anything. If I don't trust the worker, I'd be crappin myself the whole match anyway.

 

Are there any match types you'd like to wrestle in a lot? Some match types you'd rather never have to work in?

 

I'm a battle royal/Royal Rumble/Survivor Series mark, so stick me in those matches. Someone can javelin me over the top. Plus, it'd be cool to be in a 4-5 man team with a hokey name . . . The Rude Brood, The Vipers, ect. Even the Elimination Chamber looks like a blast. However, no Exploding Taipei Death Matches for me.

 

What style of normal match would you like to do the most? Would you prefer to sell or to dominate? Would you like to do long matches?

 

I'd much rather sell. Seems like a lot less work. If you're dominating, you better know 2-3 moves ahead what you're going to do. As for match length, I don't really care. 2 min-60min . . . whatever.

 

Would you like to have a manager or valet to work spots with or would you rather just do it all yourself?

 

I'd only want one if that person somewhat fits my style/character. Don't just stick someone w/ me just because (Ex: Stacy w/ Hurricane).

 

Are there some types of angles that you would refuse to do? Some types of angles that you'd love to do?

 

I'd only refuse blatant homosexual angles. I'd be willing to work with anything else, no matter how dumb it is.

 

What promotion would you like to work for the most? What promotion would you hate to work for?

 

I'm pretty ignorant about promotions so I'll just say whichever pays the most.

 

What promotion of the past would you most liked to have worked for? What promotion would you have hated working for the most?

 

Only cause I'm a mark for mid-late 1980s WWF, I'd love to be in the SD Jones role getting my BUTT kicked by the heel of the month.

 

Any wrestlers today that you'd like to work against? Any you would avoid working against at all costs?

 

I'm pretty indifferent here.

 

What wrestlers from the past would you like to work against? What wrestlers from the past would you not want to work against?

 

I'd love to work w/ 1980s Randy Savage and would avoid that Missing Link goof at all costs.

I would experiement with everything. Of course, it would depend on certain situations.

 

Like to have your promo's scripted? Or just be given a couple of bullet points, and wing the rest?

 

Wing it.

 

Blade often? Only on occasion? Would you rather never blade at all?

 

I don't know. I like my good looks and cutting myself open is something I don't like doing. Ironically, I've cut myself thousands of times working with barbwire and stuff. One time I decided to paint my bleeding hand all over my face so I could go down to the house and scare everyone but my buddy talked me out of it. I've also written words on the basement door in blood -- I guess what I'm getting at here is that I love the attention blood gets and the thrill and excitement of bleeding. So thinking about it -- Yes, I'd probably be pretty tempted to blade. Maybe I'd use barb wire instead of the normal methods.I'd love to be gushing blood in a dramatic match scaring the audience out of their seats

 

What style would you like to wrestle? Why would you prefer to employ that particular style over others?

 

Every stlye possible that I could do. I would tend to go for very long control segments especially once I got good at my work.

 

Refuse to take certain moves? Only take them when working with certain wrestlers?

 

Don't care for low blows. Not so much for the pain but because I have to keep that area special for the ladies.

 

Are there any match types you'd like to wrestle in a lot? Some match types you'd rather never have to work in?

 

I wouldn't want to work some of the deathmatch stuff. Some of it I would

 

What style of normal match would you like to do the most? Would you prefer to sell or to dominate? Would you like to do long matches?

 

A sprint because I love to push myself and test my mettle. I'd like to both sell and dominate (that's a creepy line). Yes, I'd love to do long matches. An all out sprint too. My buddy and I once had a 3hr shoot mercy fight/wrestling match that totally drained us (not in that way) and I loved every second of it.

 

Would you like to have a manager or valet to work spots with or would you rather just do it all yourself?

 

Yes, I'd love a valet because than I'd have a chance of getting my first ever kiss. Doing it all yourself gets depressing after awhile.

 

Are there some types of angles that you would refuse to do? Some types of angles that you'd love to do?

 

Yes, some of the WWE angles that demean women. I would never hit a woman.

 

What promotion would you like to work for the most? What promotion would you hate to work for?

 

Not sure.

 

I wouldn't want to work for the WWE at times. ROH at times.

 

What promotion of the past would you most liked to have worked for? What promotion would you have hated working for the most?

 

Anywhere where there is great wrestling - I would love to be there. Stampede around Dynamite's heel run would've been great.

 

I would hate working for Memphis

 

Any wrestlers today that you'd like to work against? Any you would avoid working against at all costs?

 

Benoit, Kobashi, Rey, Jamie Knoble, American Dragon, KENTA and a ton of others.

 

Anyone that was careless in the ring I would like to avoid.

 

What wrestlers from the past would you like to work against? What wrestlers from the past would you not want to work against?

 

The Dynamite Kid, Johnny Smith, Jumbo Tsurta, Mach Hayato, Davey Boy Smith, Bret Hart, Owen Hart, Ben Basserb, the Viet Cong Express tag team, Ravishing Rick Rude, the Cuban Assasin, Andre the Giant, Stan Hanson with glasses, Rip Rogers.

 

Manami Toyota and Debbie Malenko in a handicap match.

 

There's nobody I really wouldn't have wanted to work against.

If you were a wrestler, would you:

 

Prefer to be given only finish and call everything else in the ring? Lay the entire match out beforehand?

 

I would prefer to just plan out a few highspots and such, then call the rest of the match on the fly.

 

Like to have your promo's scripted? Or just be given a couple of bullet points, and wing the rest?

 

If I had to speak (which I wouldn't really want to), I'd do it from the heart/on the fly.

 

Blade often? Only on occasion? Would you rather never blade at all?

 

Only when the situation calls for it, like in the blowoff to a grudge feud. I'd likely do it once every few years, to make it special.

 

What style would you like to wrestle? Why would you prefer to employ that particular style over others?

 

I would either work the technical style with a little high-flying and brawling mixed in a la Benoit at his prime. The reason for this is because I find it to be more challenging than jumping off the top rope in a "LETS SEE WHO CAN DO A 720 FIRST!" contest or just beat each other up without rhyme or reason.

 

Refuse to take certain moves? Only take them when working with certain wrestlers?

 

No dangerous head droppers unless I'm working with someone who has a track record of making it a safe thing to take, if that's possible.

 

Are there any match types you'd like to wrestle in a lot? Some match types you'd rather never have to work in?

 

Anything that challenges my wrestling ability, like a 60-minute broadway or 2/3 falls or anything that challenges my ability to keep the fans drawn in. No deathmatches or matches where I have to get beaten the hell out of for no reason than to pop the crowds.

 

What style of normal match would you like to do the most? Would you prefer to sell or to dominate? Would you like to do long matches?

 

Considering I work better as a heel, I'd probably want to lead the matches, hence be a smidge more dominant than not. I'll sell the babyface comebacks though. Yes I'd love to do long matches. I've worked a few 45 minute matches without problems.

 

Would you like to have a manager or valet to work spots with or would you rather just do it all yourself?

 

Considering I would prefer not to talk, I'd likely employ the use of a manager to get my strong points over. In the match though, I'd like to work alone or if his presence is needed, without too much interference.

 

Are there some types of angles that you would refuse to do? Some types of angles that you'd love to do?

 

The obvious answer is WWE's crap. I would also not want to do anything where the woman is the central figure of the angle, just because the character I do would have no need for a woman. I'd love to do angles where I am in a bitter "Who's better?" feud against who would be viewed as my archnemesis.

 

 

What promotion would you like to work for the most? What promotion would you hate to work for?

 

Honestly, I wouldn't mind working for TNA to see if I could help shed the "Jeff Jarrett Show" stigmata. I also would work in Mexico or Japan. I would hate to work for WWE or XPW.

 

What promotion of the past would you most liked to have worked for? What promotion would you have hated working for the most?

 

1980s NWA/early 1990s AJPW. Would hate working for WWF/E in any era and late 1990s WCW.

 

Any wrestlers today that you'd like to work against? Any you would avoid working against at all costs?

 

I'd like to work against the usual suspects like Eddie Guerrero, Chris Benoit, Chris Daniels, Bryan Danielson, Samoa Joe, etc. Would avoid working with stiff people like Low Ki and would avoid working with WWE's roiders.

 

What wrestlers from the past would you like to work against? What wrestlers from the past would you not want to work against?

 

Dynamite Kid is my #1 choice. I would also like to work against Macho Man Randy Savage, Ricky Steamboat, Sting, etc. Wouldn't work against any stiffs in WWE's history, and Hulk Hogan, HBK, Nash, HHH etc just because they'd probably badmouth me after I put them through a classic match.

I refuse to participate in this survey due to the fact that it re-enforces the stereotype that all internet wrestling fans are wannabe wrestlers.

Cause wrestlers are wannabe fighters. And who wants to be a wannabe? That's like wanting to host Entertainment Tonight, or worse, anything on E! We're talking about pond scum, here.

I'd like to wing most of it. I wouldn't, at first. I think the ability to do that is very impressive.

 

Like to have your promo's scripted? Or just be given a couple of bullet points, and wing the rest?

If they scripted it, I'd go off-script. I couldn't be limited like that.

 

Blade often? Only on occasion? Would you rather never blade at all?

Only on very rare occasion -- once every year, or maybe even less. Guys like HHH, HBK, Hogan, et al who ALWAYS blade make it seem so fake.

 

What style would you like to wrestle? Why would you prefer to employ that particular style over others?

I'd want to be a power-wrestling heel, because I think I could do it well. I love seeing guys hit a big move; seeing someone just leveled by a clothesline, or watching a back broken by a powerbomb. I also think I could learn to sell and bump well, as I have a decent pain threshold, and it's impressive to see a 6'5, 300lb. guy get beat up by a plucky babyface.

 

Refuse to take certain moves? Only take them when working with certain wrestlers?

I wouldn't take headdrops from anyone I didn't trust. But if I did trust the person I was in there with, I'd take anything. A lot of my favorites -- Rock, Kanyon, Rey -- were willing to take anything and make it look good.

 

Are there any match types you'd like to wrestle in a lot? Some match types you'd rather never have to work in?

I grew up on ladder matches and, if I ever was to be a professional wrestler, I'd almost need to have one at some point. I just think there's so much you can do in that type of match, even after all the ones we've seen. I would rather never work the "hardcore" style, or the deathmatch style. I don't care for weapons, really, beyond chairs and tables.

 

What style of normal match would you like to do the most? Would you prefer to sell or to dominate? Would you like to do long matches?

Well, I'd prefer to both sell AND dominate, as detailed above. But I wouldn't ever be afraid to show ass. As much as I love submission matches, I don't think I'd be good at them, or really enjoy them as a participant. I'd love to do an Iron Man match, as long as I had the cardio for it, because, again, it's something you wouldn't expect from a big man.

 

Would you like to have a manager or valet to work spots with or would you rather just do it all yourself?

I'd like to have a manager, valet, or even both at some point...but, if I ever made it to the top, I'd like to do it on my own.

 

Are there some types of angles that you would refuse to do? Some types of angles that you'd love to do?

I'd refuse to do something racist or otherwise prejudiced. I think there's a place for television to touch on that subject, but wrestling isn't it. Other than that, not much. I love the spectacle of the business. I'd LOVE to be the heel who allies with the face after the other heels beat him down -- the "common enemy" angle. I think it's a great way to turn face. Show you have honor, etc.

 

What promotion would you like to work for the most? What promotion would you hate to work for?

Right now, I'd love to be a part of TNA. I think if they can get a few non-X guys that are decent, guys like Christian, they can be really special. I'd hate to work for some indy deathmatch fed, like an XPW.

 

What promotion of the past would you most liked to have worked for? What promotion would you have hated working for the most?

 

 

Any wrestlers today that you'd like to work against? Any you would avoid working against at all costs?

I can't even imagine working against HBK right now. It makes me too giddy. I'd also love to work against Angle. A big suplexfest. Rey would be a fun match. I'd hate to work with Cena, HHH, or JBL.

 

What wrestlers from the past would you like to work against? What wrestlers from the past would you not want to work against?

I'd love to be able to work with Bret Hart. He seems like the kind of worker that'd make you better for working with him.
