This week the Kick Out at Two Podcast welcomes Air Paris to the program. Righteous Jesse talks with Air Paris about partnering with A.J. Styles, NWA Wildside, and being the father of a young wrestling fan.
It’s a shame to think that after 87 episodes, this could be the end of KOAT as we know it. Why? Because Saturday night, Righteous Jesse is going to die. He’s promoting his second show ever with Southern Underground Pro “Don’t call it SUP GRAPS” Wrestling, and he’s booked himself in a deathmatch against former KOAT guest and legendary deathmatch wrestler, Tank. I’m not sure why Jesse would do such a suicidal thing or why his friend the Wilkman or girlfriend Bonnaroo Brittany would allow it. We can only pray that Jesse will survive and live to podcast another day.
The Kick Out at Two Podcast is available on iTunes, Soundcloud, and Stitcher every Friday.
Southern Underground Pro Wrestling’s second show, Show You No Mercy, takes place Saturday night, June 10, at The Cobra in Nashville and features Bonestorm champion “The Lodestar: Curt Stallion, “The Blue Eyed Devil” Tripp Cassidy, Kevin Ku, Percy Davis, Brett Ison, Chase Jordan, Matt Lynch, Caleb Courageous, and Jeremiah Plunkett. Show information can be found on Facebook or Twitter.
Condolences on the loss of Righteous Hesse can be sent via Twitter to Bonnaroo Brittany.
The Kick Out at Two Podcast has featured a number of wrestlers and promotions over their first 76 episodes. On episode 77, the spotlight falls within, on a project near and dear to Righteous Jesse’s heart.
Southern Underground Pro Wrestling is Jesse’s baby, a new promotion making its debut in just three weeks. Promising to bring a “different kind of pro wrestling” to Jesse’s home town of Nashville, TV SUP’s first show features a stellar line up of independent wrestlers competing in a winner take all tournament to become the first Bonestorm Champion.
SUP is an 18 and over promotion making its debut on April 23. Listen to this week’s Kick Out at Two Podcast to learn more about the promotion, the show, and the competitors, and visit the event page on Facebook to find out how you can get one of the 100 tickets for this exciting debut.
My friend Righteous Jesse from the Kick Out at Two Podcast has put out a call for anyone who used to be a backyard wrestler to step up and share their stories.
There’s a negative stigma attached to backyard wrestling, due to the danger involved and the general perception that backyard wrestlers aren’t very good, but the truth of the matter is, backyard wrestling has been the starting point for many wrestlers at all levels of the business. The Hardy Boyz started in the backyard. So did Josh Prohibition and Matt Cross. And New Origins Wrestling in Irvine, now broadcast on the TEN Network on Roku, began as a backyard promotion.
Righteous Jesse is looking for men and women who started out in the backyard. He wants to shed a light on backyard wrestling in the form of a documentary to be released on YouTube. This is not a for-profit venture, but a labor of love on behalf of the wrestlers and fans who continue to keep backyard wrestling alive.
The Wilkman from Kick Out at Two offered up this as his favorite match of the year: Chip Day vs. Gary Jay at St. Louis Anarchy. Look for Righteous Jesse in the left half of your screen in the green shirt, making his presence (and preference) known early in the video. These guys know how to have a good time at a wrestling show.
My best of 2016 series continues today with Bonnaroo Brittany from the Kick Out at Two Podcast. Brittany’s pick was Gary Jay vs. Tripp Cassidy at Pro Wrestling Freedom, and it’s available to watch below!
Fans of Kick Out at Two, come back tomorrow and I’ll have the Wilkman’s pick as well. You can listen to Brittany, Wilkman, and Righteous Jesse every week (except this week) on the Kick Out at Two Podcast!
The Kick Out at Two Podcast released their final episode of the year today, an interview with Tier 1 Champion Darius Carter! If you haven’t already subscribed, you can find Kick Out at Two on iTunes, Soundcloud, and Stitcher.
Righteous Jesse was also happy to chime in with his favorite match of 2016, Brett Ison vs. Lee Byford:
This match is a favorite of mine for a few reasons- 1. It’s no secret that Brett Ison is my best friend. Getting to see my best friend wrestle in another state for another promotion and get a positive response from the crowd was such a great feeling. 2. It’s Brett Ison vs Lee Byford. If you aren’t familiar with these two they’ve been rivals and partners. I knew this would be a knock down, drag out fight. I was 200% right. These two men gave it everything they had and captured the crowds attention. The match took place at Atlanta Wrestling Entertainment at Famous Pub. I highly recommend this match to anyone who might doubt that strong style has a place in the south.
No Men November is over, but the Kick Out at Two Podcast rolls on. This week, the gang catches up with a certain tag team from Jollyville. Individually they call themselves Nasty Russ and T Money, but together they are… well, let’s just say it’s not a WWE PG Era friendly moniker.
Righteous Jesse tells me that these two had a personal connection with a couple members of the KOAT crew. Should make for a fun listen, as always.
The Kick Out at Two Podcast is available on iTunes and Soundcloud, and as always, it’s free. If you’re new to the show, go back and check out some of the amazing interviews you’ve missed. Kelly Klein and Rachael Ellering are two recent must-hear guests, and I strongly recommend giving Mr. Grim the Hitman for Hire a listen as well.
This is the third in a series of stories about the upcoming PWF: The Primus show in Jeffersonville on September 9. Today, special guest writer Righteous Jesse chimes in on one of the big favorites, Jimmy Rave. Jesse is the co-host of the Kick Out at Two Podcast. He has worked commentary for Jimmy Rave’s home promotion, Atlanta Wrestling Entertainment, and he has good reason to believe the PWF title will be headed to Georgia.
We’ve all got our picks. Who will win the new PWF championship? We all know why some of these men could be victorious. But here’s a look at why they won’t be.
Jimmy Rave is the smartest wrestler in the game. Instead of being one step ahead, he’s always several steps ahead. He’s familiar with “run jimmy run” chants. They do not phase him. Jimmy knows that he can use the 10 count to his full advantage and even extend the count by rolling in and out of the ring again. It’s the little things like that.
Rave is a world traveled wrestling superstar who has held several championships throughout his career. This will be another one added to the resume. He’s seen it all. He’s done it all. He has the strategy, and on September 9th at The Primus, Jimmy Rave will be the new PWF champion.
When Righteous Jesse tells me who the weekly guest is on Kick Out at Two, I head to YouTube and look for the most recent match I can find featuring that guest. I want to give people the most up to date, relevant introduction possible to the many stars they feature.
Not this week.
This week their guest is one of the marquee names appearing at the Scenic City Invitational, Chris Hero. Hero has been around the world many times. He had a brief run in NXT as Cassius Ohno. He recently wrestled for more than three hours straight to raise money for ALS research.
But before all that, he wrestled CM Punk.
I’ve posted this before, but it’s worth watching again. And again. And again. This match is everything I love about indy wrestling: a wild an raucous crowd, and two young athletes who will do anything to make a name for themselves. It was voted the #1 match in IWA Mid-South history. This is Chris Hero and CM Punk: Tables and Ladders, in the building CM Punk once called the perfect place to host Wrestlemania.
