HCW SuperstarÂ Nick MayberryÂ toÂ Confront International Recording Artists, Peelander Z!!!!
7-time HCW Hardcore Champion Nick Mayberry has issued a statement regarding Japanese action comic punk band, Peelander Z. Peelander Z, a group well-known forÂ their on-stage antics & appearances on TV’s MXC: Most Extreme Challenge [SpikeTV], Best Week Ever [VH1], and Upright Citizens Brigade [Comedy Central], has infuriated Mayberry with their highly-publicized use of professional wrestling in their personas.
Mayberry, a well-known and controversial performer on Florida’s independent wrestling scene,Â has been a part of HCW,Â Rusty Brook’s FSCW andÂ theÂ now-defunct FOWÂ promotion. He has shared the ring with the likes of superstars from WWE, WCW, TNA, ECW and NWA and is a 7-time Hardcore Champion. In 2002, he established the Annual Incredible 8 Tournament, won by Shark Boy, Reckless Youth and others.
Peelander, formed of Peelander Blue, Peelander Yellow and Peelander Red, have been in their industry for almost a decade as well – being formed in 1998 and appearing at important music events, such as SXSW, ever since. Their on-stage personas incorporate their love of pro-wrestling into their act, viaÂ their use ofÂ pro-wrestling moves on-stage, and wearing wrestling themed outfits and replica belts while performing.
Peelander Z, currently on a nationwide tour across the United States, stops in Mayberry’s home city of Ft. Lauderdale from June 22nd through the 24th as part of the Florida Supercon – a huge comic book, sci-fi & animation / anime convention – where they will both perform and meet with fans. Michael Winslow [Police Academy], Dana “Master Shake” Snyder [Aqua Teen Hunger Force], Marcia Wallace [The Simpsons], & George “Space Ghost” Lowe will be among DOZENS of others in attendance.
Mayberry has different plans for their appearance. “I understand that they will be performing on June 23rd, being part of the Supercon. Well, sinceÂ how theyÂ behaveÂ works to destroyÂ my performances, I think I might just be there to destroy theirs. If they won’t stop their antics, then them and all their little Peelanderite idiot fans will witness exactly what sets a real professional wrestler apart from morons pretending to be one.”
“Peelander using wrestling in their performances is like David Arquette being WCW Champion. It’s a real disgrace, and a pureÂ insult to professionals like myself, who live, eat, sleep and breathe pro-wrestling.”
The Florida Supercon, a comic book,Â sci-fi, animation and animeÂ convention takes place June 22nd through the 24th, inside the Marriott North Hotel [6650 N Andrews Avenue – Ft. Lauderdale, FL 33309]. Other guests will include Roy Thomas [Marvel Comics Creator of Ghost Rider, Red Sonja, etc.], Kevin Conroy [The Voice of Batman], John Wesley Shipp [Dawson’s Creek], Cindy Morgan [TRON], andÂ dozens ofÂ others. Tickets are available online, and at the door. For more information visit: www.FloridaSupercon.com
