I am your host Mr Fourth row and on on this podcast this episode I have one of the local wrestling talents here in the Colorado area and that is kept in Stevens Yoho captain Stevens how you doing up doing good today Mr fourth worthwhile how `bout yourself I am hanging in there so I really appreciate you coming onto the show. <hes> let's start off with the first question. So how did you get interested in professional wrestling. Did you watch it as a child. Oh My my dad had me watching wrestling pretty much at least from what my mom says is when I was an infant you know like four to six months old and stuff like that and even my uncle has this little story. He likes to tell of how he knew. I was going to be a wrestler is <hes> there was one day we just finished watching wrestling and I was like three years older so and my mom was sleeping on the floor and I guess if they climbed up on the arm of the couch and did a macho man flying elbow wrist right across her nose so so at that young age. Do you remember watching or do you have any memories from back. Then I guess my earliest memory summary of professional wrestling <hes> is <hes> Summer Slam nineteen ninety two the one that took place at Wembley Stadium in the United Kingdom and are used to we had recorded on a V._H._s. tape shape and I used to watch that the heck out of that tape like I used to watch especially the main event which was the Bret Hart versus the British bulldog for the intercontinental title right so the question is well. Do you still have tape and or is it just worn out and if so do you have anything so played on <hes> no I don't I don't have the tape or if the player thank thank goodness for the network so I can relive that man all right yeah. That's true so I was just I was just kind of curious so <hes> who are your favorites watching him you. Who did you really like to enjoy their work? Oh Man I could almost do like a time line with it. I mean when I was a little a little kid. It was the ultimate warrior I mean even dressed up like in for all and stuff like that did the whole face paint in the arm tassels and stuff like that and then <hes> as I got older and he wasn't there it kind of transitioned into <hes> to brow heart watched a follow 'em even when he left <hes> after Montreal all the way to W._C._W.. I followed his career up until pretty much time he laughed and that's back she bow I'd stop watching wrestling for a little bit around then but I'd say those are probably the two biggest no very cool so then <hes> what then got you into thinking and actually taking that step into doing this as a as a little bit of the profession so in in about two thousand eight as about twenty years older so I had <hes> I went to a R._M._c. w show it was at <hes> reading Jerry's they had like Butch Reed there and I watched him wrestle Rob Bryson and stuff like that and then <hes> I remember after that being invited over to like a a Wrestlemainia Watch party at someone's house and they were talking about training guys then and I had gotten somewhat interested back then is I didn't even know there was an independent wrestling scene in Colorado at all until about that time Oh wow wow so then <hes> who who was it that you got involved with doing your training and and stuff my stubborn night of training actually <hes> I I went to the. I don't know if you remember it. The I W F butcher shop I've heard of it. Yes it's it's it's essentially now. The PRIMOZ butcher shot up because pretty much just GonNa took over the school right and people were. You know people who trained they're essentially worked promotions of whatnot and it just kind of transition to Primoz once I W F closed doors but that that was my first night at training was with I._W._f.. And then I just continued when it went into when it transferred over to Primoz Um and so did you start training there right away in two thousand eight. Did you say no actually I did not find a school until about two thousand eleven doesn't eleven okay I ended up just looking it up online and found that school though okay awesome and so you have been doing this <hes> ever since then so about seven eight years <hes> if if challenge training right right yeah. That's what I'm saying yeah I mean we do what we do training because it's still part of all the process right now part of all the process. You honestly never stop learning so well. Yeah that's true. That's very true. You're so then <hes>. When did you have like your first match crazy enough? My first match didn't come on WanNa see came in about two thousand fifteen. I I wasn't always the best about maintaining a proper coming to training schedule because I had really crazy work hours especially starting in two thousand eleven when my boss was very adamant about not giving me the days off that they trained so I you know I didn't make my debut herb like my first match until about two thousand fourteen two thousand fifteen <hes> and who was your opponent <hes> crazy enough. Have you ever heard of <hes> Primoz carnival the actual show yes yeah the Halloween show yes my first match. I was stung and I wrestled cody divine. Who was us <hes> staying okay Nice? That's very that's very cool awesome all right so then <hes> you just been kind of hitting the promotions <hes> pretty much since then Kinda got steady <hes> <hes> work schedule per se you know in the in the wrestling <hes> community then I I do at least in Denver and like 'cause I. I work with Primos and I work with C._S.. W I mean it's definitely not to say that I wouldn't want to work for any other promotion because I mean I have wrestled like twice for Lucia Lebron lamps but I definitely would like to do more but I do eat steady with pre Muhsin C._S.. W right and did I want. Did I catch at one time. You worked for was it. Is it big sky as well big sky. That's <hes> promotion out in Wyoming Yeah. They're United States champion. I'm sorry you cut out there say that again. I'm actually they're United States champion you current the current United States champion champion in Big Sky <hes> Yep and how often do they do show because it seems like <hes> kind of little intermittent or they are very they're very intermittent. We haven't had our show up there since I wanNA see June or July well. Do you think that's just because <hes> well you. Would you agree with me that the wrestling scene in Colorado's really taking off right now <hes> I would definitely chalk it up to that. I mean there's no I mean it's really crazy right now. Without any promotions there that are popping up in around the state especially you know down in Colorado Springs and stuff like that and then you have Primoz in new era and rocky mountain pro and Lucia brand laughs up at Denver right and then the count countless number of Lucia actual Lucia Promotions to Oh yeah so all right well <hes> you now well you kind of two <hes> currently are in a <hes>. I guess you the best way to explain it would be like a faction called. The party pirate punks. How did that come about to be to be completely honest with you? I think that at a certain point we were just gonNA thrown together and because we were originally just the party pirates and it was me and polly beat and then Paulie be got injured eat hurt his knee in our first tag outing to be honest. I don't know so then <hes> a couple months later <hes> they paired me up with Johnny crash crash while poly was rehabbing and <hes> we just kind of went from there as the pirate punks and then you know about seven eight months later polly came back from his knee injury and he just Kinda got lumped in with US awesome we became the party pirate punks ever since harlow was <hes> was was it just something that just kind of happened or were you kind of put together by anybody like special that maybe we've mentioned on the podcast before. There's just I could definitely say it. Was it someone it's definitely `specially I mean <hes> Chris Chavez. The former owner of CIS w <hes> is the one that put us together I had I had an idea. He's he's. He's he's. He's kind of genius would you. He's just kind of has that magical touch. Would you agree with that you really did he really did have that. Just kind of that magical touch. I mean I don't now. I can't honestly say like right off the top at what it was but there was just there was always something about you know see us w when we first got there that just kinda made wrestling down on the spur in Colorado Springs really special DAB him there and I do know that a lot of us really miss him so oh yeah I miss him too. <hes> so speaking of that <hes> I know that you and I have kind of talked about it a little bit but why don't we go ahead and reiterate reiterate on the <hes> podcast <hes> the couple special things that <hes> with when it comes to see us w for you <hes> that have kind of been book and <hes> most recently with the <hes> last <hes> Colorado Springs shelves so tell tell everybody about that well I mean just kristen general was always just someone that really believed a lot of me and he always spoke really highly of me and you know we had worked before he opened C._S.. W We had worked a couple times on the independent scene and he was really Yummy then and then <hes> you know <hes> Mian Cormack battle were actually in the very very first match N._C._I._S. W I mean we opened the very very first show was just mean Cormac and now that will always kind of be like a little special thing that I have with Mac you know an opening up that show right and then now most recently tell the listeners <hes> what happened <hes> for you <hes> with <hes> C._S.. W All I am <hes> one half of the C._S.. W tag eighteen champions with my cohorts Bali and Johnny crash and I also just won the Christopher Chavez senior memorial battle royal got a big big big trophy for that right and show that okay and a and that leads me into <hes> what you have coming up in the near future <hes> here in about <hes> just a little bit over in a week so tell the listeners what is going on there well. I actually have <hes> if you don't mind actually two show's coming up here in about a week and a half you know definitely Primoz. This Sunday is a woman scorned from the watering bowl. That's going to be one heck of the show I mean I mean. Have you seen the main event for that one already. Oh yeah lament filter in Anaya. That's Oh God that's going to be a match it. Nobody should miss and then a week from Friday march eighth. I'm at <hes> C._S.. W Bar fights volume three were the main event is myself versus. <hes> Joey can eight and that's in other matches two bulls right right and Joey Kincaid was the person that you had was the last person was <hes> eliminated before you won the <hes> the tournament before winning about a royal right was was orange was the last person eliminated was a person that I eliminated there to whip that a royal yeah so he <hes> he think he's coming out coming back at you for a little bit of revenge all I wouldn't necessarily early put it fast on now. I mean he definitely didn't look happy after the elimination and I tell you he is is one tough guy right. Oh yeah well. They don't call him the human grenade for nothing. That's very true true very true yeah so let's <hes> so we got those out but let's talk about possibly <hes> in the near or in the <hes> little bit farther in the future <hes> if you do you have any kind of like dream matches any kind of opponents that you would like to wrestle a both as a single competitor and then maybe even getting the P P P the triple p. together and you know going against other tag teams and this could be anybody in you know close proximity to the Colorado area or even nationwide. You know maybe somebody <hes> Ion. That's you know on T._v.. Or something like that or you know and and then along with that have you had any brushes with any kind of <hes> you know people that you know National People may have heard about <hes> not necessarily like National People. I haven't really had any brushes that <hes> as far as dream matches go I mean I'd really love to wrestle as a tag team. It was me and the Party and the triple P.. I would honestly say like three matches <hes> the pillars of destiny. <hes> that would be the vikings. I would be a really good match. I really look forward to that and then there's also <hes> the one percent <hes> the team the TAG team that Roy size XS in that abby attacked team. I'd love up to face well all right and well you know and I didn't want us. You know I also have to put the Canadian pit bulls in there as well. Oh Yeah I I would love to Russell the Canadian pit bulls and then I guess as a singles competitor like my <hes> my two on the on the Dream List bucket list kind of thing right now are I'd love to Wrestle Lonnie Zelda's or Mike sidell okay definitely love to wrestle Mike Side L.. That would be fun. That would be fun yeah I could I could I can see that so you think <hes> I would I would. I'm not going to speak for him but I think the pillars destinies would even welcome a two on three handicap match to those guys those guys definitely look crazy yeah or awesome yeah well you know they have had some exposure on <hes> on impact <hes> not necessarily the main show but there <hes> web show the explosion show so there you go. That's that's there's some national brush brushing fame right there so that would be kind that'd be kind of fun well and then of course the one percent <hes> Roy six giral Nelson so yeah they they're all over the place so yeah that would be definitely a possibility oh yeah all right <hes> so any other <hes> any other things that you have coming up here in the near future besides <hes> Primoz and <hes> see us. W even you know three four weeks six in in that you're aware of that you can announce here. I can actually go over a few things. <hes> Primoz has been pretty heavily promoting <hes> few shows coming up here within the next couple of months. <hes> like I said to start you know this Sunday March third at the watering bowl and Denver Colorado <hes> there is a woman scorn and that's going to be too. It's usually starts about seven seven fifteen tickets sir ten dollars online about fifteen bucks at the door and <hes> definitely looking forward to that show and then March eighth is <hes> C._S..

For coming on so let's go ahead and before we get talk about this upcoming week. Let's do the week in review so last Thursday was the rocky mountain pro ignition and charged episodes from the Rocky Mountain Quarry in the Jefferson County fairgrounds great shows as always got to see some new talent <hes> that traveled in and came in then <hes> we had <hes> the Youngun Champ Gentler Hopkins came in got to see him good. I really enjoy him. Him And Curtis Cole had a barn burder. Excuse excuse the Pun of a match it was amazing and I really love seeing the young gun come in town. He needs to come in town more often and <hes> there was a couple of other talents <unk>. I not sherve. I caught their names quite properly. <hes> one was the <hes> melih infant <hes> milk. Oh a belief and that was great. I loved his character is Great Craig character great great great and then on Friday the Lucci brain laughs today Inter Gender Tag team tournament kicked off the equal fights a two day tournament <hes> great I went tended that and got the see for the first time Delilah Doom in person and Ruby raise it was their Taya Tavakkoli came in town like I said that was great. Her and Mike Zell Yoga salt had a fantastic match and then I would say <hes> Allegata an Anaya Dia versus Caleb crush and Delilah doom was a fantastic match while they were all fantastic matches but <hes> those matches a were probably the highlights for me Eh especially because <hes> just van service for myself I would say that with Anaya and Allegata <hes> pulling a little bit of the left F- coast guerrillas <hes> tactics out and displayed them against their opponents was great and then also on Friday as well. The Rocky mountain pro had their rocky Mount WPRO experience at the roundhouse unfortunately because Lucci relaxed had <hes> that event that night as well wasn't able to attend <hes> look like it went off really well of course the talent that came in for the Thursday show at Rocky Mountain pro was also there as well so it's always kind of Nice to see though get introduced a couple more talents and not get so comfortable with the towns to see all the time at all these shows and then <hes> like I said Saturday was the combination of deliberation laughs tournament where Caleb crush and Eliah doom won the tournament well undeserved everybody did well. They <hes> faced ruby raise and I am the provider <hes> in the finals. <hes> got to see all kinds of things <hes> you're also on Saturday night. Joy Ryan was there but they hadn't said who he was going to be facing and boom as soon as the music hit it was the fiercest feline nine in Lucia Lebron Alley Gatto so keeping it up with the theme for the equal fights Allegata faced Joey Freakin Ryan I was I was so happy to to see that match. It was amazing and <hes> I there's not enough words to describe it all and then also the Iron Hills this championship wrestling promotion also came back had their showdown there in Colorado Springs looks like it went off well surprisingly Jimbo Lucas guest lost his championship and he vows to get it back as soon as he can. <hes> sound like there was a little bit of <hes> dispute on how it it happens so I'll be excited to see how that all turns out and then on Sunday I attended for the first time I went to Hugo's Lucia libra which also takes place at Jefferson County fairgrounds. <hes> same places rocky mountain pro they dress up the arena a little bit different with the Hugo's branding and all stuff like that of course with us being the deliberate a lot of it was in Spanish and I am not even enclose to understanding a good majority of the words I know a lot <hes> it's a different different experience and it's formatted a lot differently <hes> I did mark out that they have a mascot that comes out <hes> before the show and kind of like at Intermission <hes> at say. I kinda liked it. I thought it was fun. Russell exposed to be about fun so I I really enjoyed that. <hes> got to see a couple of people that of course new Delta the junior and Red Viper and I had a match as well <hes> Luna was there. I got this. We've seen her rocky mountain pro a few times as well so it was kind of fun. <hes> got to see a lot of new faces faces <hes> they do a lot of two out of three falls. I think as well 'cause they have a <hes> a ring card girl woman. Whatever you WANNA call her a come out to tell you what around or reading it or follow this kind of stuff like that so that was Kinda Fun? Definitely WanNa go again <hes> because it is a definite experience <hes> rowdy crowd beaten on drums and all that kind of stuff that you would expect from a more traditional Lucia Lube Ray <hes> promotion so that was fun so not talking about the past. Let's talk about the future we have this Thursday coming up as a time of this recording that is tomorrow and with it being the last Thursday of the month that means it is time for rocky mountain pro supercharged and it's is going to be a purge event which means it is anything goes ladders chairs. <hes> still <hes> barrels whatever you can find.
