The canvas doesn’t change shape, it doesn’t change how hard it is depending on your gender, it’s the same ring, and it’s the same audience, its sport and business so gender should not come into play when training… Continue reading

Joe Rage on becoming Erin Jacobs

Over recent years fans of the Northeast wrestling scene have been been spoiled as the scene has continued to grow and go from strength to strength. On top of the existing promotions like Main Event Wrestling new companies like Absolute and NORTH have been formed and provided a stage for the area’s top workers to showcase their talents. Not only are performers in the northeast incredibly talented in the ring but many of them have created their own personas that makes them stand out from the crowd. With characters such as the Sons of Ulaid, The Primate and even Mr Kill All Gimmicks himself, HT Drake at the forefront the northeast has never had such a strong talent pool as it does today.
Given the depth of talented performers it could be difficult for anyone to emerge and standout but throughout 2017 one man has managed to adapt him persona and make himself one of the more unique characters around. That character Erin Jacobs is the brainchild of the extremely talented Joe Rage and we were lucky enough to talk to Joe about his start in wrestling, how he became the performed he is today and how he created the Erin Jacobs character. We hope you enjoy it… Continue reading

I met Sean McLaughlin a few months ago at WhatCulture Pro Wrestling after being introduced to the man by their then-press officer Suzie Kennedy. We talked and I got the information I needed to create a profile on him for our profile section. After some gentle badgering by Sean I eventually got round to creating it. Despite finding Sean incredibly friendly I was genuinely surprised at the popularity of his profile and as the number of views climbed Sean and I connected over silly banter to the point where I would now class him as a pal.
With that in mind when I realised he was going to be involved in the largest European wrestling show in my lifetime, Fear & Loathing IX, I asked him to take some pictures on the day and then chat to me about it at the next WCPW Loaded taping after the big show…

Klondyke Kate interview, Monday 21 November 2016

Far too many people far too easily bestow the title of legend on those they admire, not me, for me you have to earn it with blood, sweat and tears and I confidently say that Jayne Porter (aka Klondyke Kate) is a legend.

There was no path for her to follow in her career, no path for her to follow in her life, she did it her way, on her terms and I for one know the wrestling family is better for having her in it.

I was lucky enough for her to give me some of her time recently and to hear her story in her own words… Continue reading
