Me and the host, referee Jeremy Westwood jive talk about rasslin, Chicago, Shawn Shultz, Anthony Lucassio, EGO PRO Wrestling, NWA Smoky Mountain, the weird results of the most recent TNA Gut Check and beyond. Here's the link-age...

1986 Called!!!

If you miss pro wrestling's 1980-ish territory music-video packages, by all means check out the last two minutes or so of this EGO PRO video for a smile.

Actually the whole video is solid, and features several highlights of the Everybody Dies match, my title defense against the Demon, plus the first Detroit Funk City interview in over three years.

A Little Funk to Believe in and DFC thoughts

Well, I got some exciting news. This Saturday in Wartburg, I may be living a small wee dream of mine. (LOL) If things turn out like they were presented to me, I may be tagging with a "little person" named Micro Funk vs. a tag team of evil. Come out and support all sizes of the funk this Saturday afternoon in Wartburg!!!

I don't have any promo clips or pics yet, but the Red Fist vs. Yellow Mist EGO PRO Heavyweight Championship was an amazing match. I'm still sore from wrestling the Demon. He did not get an opportunity to hit me with the Paralyzing Blood Mist (thank God) and he was the first person ever to kick out of the Red Fist of Funk. However, I knew that his knees were in bad shape and I was able to "exorcise the Demon" with the good ole Funky Figure Four. 

After the match was a whirlwind, and I'm not sure what exactly happened until I see the tape. But Daddy Mack's stable was apparently beating down the Demon after a failed opportunity to bring the title back into Daddy Mack's control.  They wanted Dwayne Windham to hit the Demon with a chair and he stalled. Something deep down in side stirred when I saw my old friends getting turned on by Daddy Mack and his group of cronies, among them being former champ Cadillac Cowboy and Corey Magnum. I hit the ring, threw someone over the top rope, and there we stood... the Demon, Dwayne Windham, and Funkmaster V. Not sure what happened, but I think we shared a common interest (I, for one, am tired of me and The Phoenixx getting outnumbered every damn match and it would be nice to have a little back up). Needless to say, Detroit Funk City may have one more run in them. This one may be more dominant than the last, because I know how much Dwayne and I have improved in the sport.

And before you ask, if you are going to call or email me about Shane Daniels, I haven't talked to him in a year, so it looks doubtful that he will be rejoining the group AT THIS POINT. But you know wrestling.... never say never...

Funkmaster V on Star 102.1FM/ Thoughts on the Demon

Apparently Kim Hansard from 102.1FM was at EGO PRO Saturday and now is a believer in the funk. She said EGO PRO has hooked her, she's coming all the time now, and she loves the new EGO PRO CHAMPION Funkmaster V. So my friends... what have YOU been waiting for? The next show is July 13th! Be there to cheer on the funk as he takes on his most hated rival, the Demon.
Funkmaster V defeats the Cadillac Cowboy in the fastest Championship Match in EGO PRO history

Cadillac Cowboy's Title reign is the shortest title reign of any title in EGO PRO history. 

Also, his hat smelled like cheap beer and desperate 45 year old women. I don't know why...

July 13th, I face my mentor and old friend/ hated enemy the Demon for the EGO PRO Heavyweight Championship. For about a year, we caused as much damage in this area as a tag team as the Death Row Inmates, Street Dreams, the Encore, Platinum Kings, etc. The Yellow Mist vs. the Red Fist. There can be only one. Here's a moment that started the rift. (By the way- he only reason I show this is because my good friend Jay Perkey gets kicked in the junk by the Demon, and it always makes me smile.)
