    TOTD 41 - Logan Smith

    TOTD 41 - Logan Smith

    Logan Smith came to record this show on the 11th March, and a lot has changed in the wrestling environment since. This is a superb story of overcoming injuries, self determination, hard work and 52 shoulder dislocations that I really recommend that everyone gives a try. Logan has two of the best answers to any questions I have asked in any podcast, and I feel very motivated in this difficult time after re listening  to edit the show

    mentions of upcoming shows removed to avoid confusion. but when PBW, Pro Wrestling Elite, Pro Wrestling Scotland, Big Massive Wrestling, Respect Wrestling and many others he has become a regular at are back up and running, go check him in action.

    TOTD 39 - Michael Chase - Career & Retirement

    Michael Chase has had a unique career , from setting up Reckless Intent via The Princes Trust, wrestling as a bunny in The Cathouse, making a scene happen in Livingston and the opportunities hes taken with Discovery Wrestling, SWE, ICW, Target Wrestling and many others before he reached his goal, getting a tryout with WWE in 2017.  When he announced earlier this year he was planing to retire we agreed that we would sit down and have a chat over his career, and the time flew in. its a longer one, but was very little I felt I could trim away. its not the story you might have expected

    TOTD 38 - Ashley Vega

    I had the pleasure to sit down with one of the breakout stars of 2019 so far in Ashley Vega. In our chat we talked training, building fitness and confidence, her time away and coming back and all the opportunities since Wrestling for PBW,  Pro Wrestling Eve and Discovery Wrestling  , starring on Kings Road and her inspirations in her character and dream match stipulations!!

    Ashley's final answer was so good and summed the chat up that well I just ended it there, no bumper asking you to like, share etc, so asking here!
