I’m a little late this week, but couldn’t skip. This was a great week for local regional independent wrestling podcasts, and if you’re even curious about what’s going on with indy wrestlers, you need to check these shows out.
First this week: Talkin’ the Business has one of the best promoters and the greatest minds in wrestling today as their guest. The man who saved CZW and also runs the very popular women’s promotion WSU D.J. Hyde shares his story about his history with CZW and where he sees the promotion going in the future. Having recently watched a little of CZW on the Highspots Network, I can tell you CZW is head and shoulders above the rest in production values, and they’re poised to continue growing in the near future.
Kick Out at Two has a must-hear show as well, a live recorded interview with 80 crazed wrestling fans at the Scenic City Invitational talking to Kerry and Nick of the Carnies. It’s a bit chaotic in points because it was the middle of the night and everyone had been drinking, but there’s some great stories as well as Kerry Awful’s pearls of wisdom for aspiring wrestlers and dreamers.
Finally, don’t skip on Dave Dynasty’s last two shows either. The Monday August 28 program featured Dick the Bruiser, Jr., talking about his start as the Golden Lion, his baseball career, and working for his father-in-law, the late, great Dick the Bruiser.
Download the Dave Dynasty Show, the Kick Out at Two Podcast, and Talkin’ the Business on iTunes or wherever you download or steal your podcasts.
Final note for indy fans: if you’re within driving distance, DO NOT miss Friday night’s Pro Wrestling Freedom event in Jeffersonville. The main event alone is worth not only the price of admission but the cost of a tank of gas. The Hooligans, the Hierarchy (Adrian Armour and Murder One), and the Carnies in a triple threat, falls count anywhere, no disqualification brawl for the PWF tag belts. This is not going to be a wrestling match. It will be a brawl. Be ready to grab your stuff and move, because it’s guaranteed to spill not only out of the ring, but well into the heart of Clark County, Indiana.
