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.

Main Event Wrestling: Toon Tussle Preview

FB_IMG_1466727778153

What a time to be a fan of wrestling based in the Northeast of England. Main Event Wrestling: Toon Tussle will be the fourth show in a busy month of wrestling and off the top of my head I can think of at least five other shows that could also have attended. New promotions seem to be popping up every other week and competition to put fans in seats have never been higher. However, while all the new companies fight to establish a brand and get their name out there another promotion is able brag that it has been established for over ten years and has entertained literally thousands of customers, many of whom may not even have been wrestling fans (remember my friend Kirsty anyone).
