If you missed the Tuesday May17th edition of the Online World of Wrestling Radio with host Alan Wojcik and contributors Phil Strum & Kevin Scott, here are the highlights:
***The program was opened by FOUR 100% free to the listener’s interviews. First up the founder of the New England Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame Mr. Joseph Breun who talked about the genesis of the HOF, this weekend’s event in East Providence, RI and much more. http://nepwhof.weebly.com/index.html is where you can find the entire list of honorees and Fan Fest information.
***Guest #2 was former Samoan Swat Team/Headshrinker member Samu who will be inducted into the HOF this weekend. Samu fielded questions on his career that spanned from WWF, the Montreal territory, World Class, NWA and back to the WWF. Along the way we got some interesting & sometime hilarious stories about working with Paul Heyman, the Road Warriors, the Steiner Brothers, the Smoking Guns and the late Yokozuna.
***The show shifted gears to talk about the Absolute Intense Wrestling “Todd Pettengill Invitational” held this Friday & Saturday in Lakewood, OH. First up the “Megastar” Marion Fontaine who opened up about an incident with an internet journalist, his “exclusive interview” with Todd, his first round opponent Colt Cabana, the legacy of his well coifed moustache, who would be a dream tag team partner and who he does NOT wish to face in the TPI. Be sure to LIKE Marion on Facebook.
***The interviews wrapped up with the “Filipino Flex Factory” Shiima Xion who opened up on his regrets about his name choice, being wrestling’s first Filipino male model, working this year’s ECWA Super 8 event, being part of the Evolve promotion, being a regular of IWC (Pittsburgh based promotion www.iwcwrestling.com for info), his love of Glam Rock and his opening round opponent former WWE star Paul London.
