Bio:
Kid Fite is one of the friendiest, most laidback people I have met in wrestling. On the few occasions I have met him he always has a smile on his face and is happy to shoot the breeze about anything. This definitely came as a shock to me as his in-ring persona and chosen name (Kid Fite does sound like the name you’d give to that scary drunk chav/ned down your local that doesn’t think a night is complete without kicking someone’s head in) is at the opposite end of the spectrum to what the man is like.

This dichotomy is again brought to the forefront whenever I watch a Kid Fite fight (normally I’d say match but I Fite fight definitely has a ring to it) and see him appear to kick seven different shades of shite out of whoever is unlucky enough to be standing opposite him in the ring. That a man as friendly is able to appear so menacing and violent that he can elicit genuine hatred from his crowd speaks worlds to his immense talent and ability. Of course the man has to be talented or else how could he have carved out a 14 year career that shows no sign of ending anytime soon.

Of all the people I have spoken to very few have a resume like Fite. If you name a major UK promotion chances are he will have wrestled there. As well as wrestling for pretty much every promotion Fite has also held 12 different championships (some more than once) on his way to being one of the most highly decorated performers on the UK scene.

Dispite Kid Fite’s incredible career his legacy may be the multiple men and women he has not only trained but also gave their in-ring debuts to. These include:
Noam Dar
Kenny Williams
Davey Blaze
Kay Lee Ray
All of whom are amongst the most talented performers in the UK and two (Noam Dar and Kay Lee Ray) have garnered enough interest from the world’s largest wrestling company, the WWE, and have appeared on WWE TV on NXT and the Cruiserweight Classic respectively.

There are few people that I can think of that can genuinely say that they have made such an impact on Wrestling in the UK as Kid Fite and with his Premier British Wrestling Academy continuing to produce stars of tomorrow, like Lou King Sharp and Aaron Echo, future legacy continues to grow and grow.

I would like to personally thank Kid Fite for taking the time to speak with me and answer my questions and I would also like to thank him on behalf of the Calling Spots staff for the impression he has made on British Wrestling.

Dream opponent:
Shawn Michaels was Fite’s favourite wrestler growing up and if he could wrestle anyone from wrestling history it would have been HBK in his prime.

He also stated that as he has always been a big fan of tag team wrestling, he always wanted to wrestle against the Briscoe Brothers. He looked up to the Briscoe’s so much that they heavilly imfluenced the style of the original Fight Club (Kid Fite and Judge Jimmy James) when they formed in 2006.

Random fact(s):
As a youngster Kid Fite was “not too shabby” on a pair of Rollerblades and even played in a competitive roller hockey league.

Fite is one of only two wrestlers (the other being ‘Bad Boy’ Liam Thomson) who has appeared at every ICW Fear & Loathing.
